1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 3 -- Al 'Imran (The Family of Imran)

Revelation: Medina, 625 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, captives and slaves - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, introduced rules, ideals and laws, etc., we personally believe in the demands and deeds, etc. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds, etc. are more reliable. Glorifying words and claims anyone can use and disuse. When you read, read what was demanded, advised and done and the introduced moral, etc, and distrust the glorious words - judge from realities, not from propaganda.

002 3/1: "Alif Lim Mim". These are called abbreviated letters - Arab letters which starts many chapters. Nobody knows why they are there or what most of them mean - and where they mean a word, the words are not relevant to the accompanying surah.

003 3/2a: "There is no god but He (Allah*)". Well, what is for sure is that Allah is not the same god as Yahweh (if any of them exists) - the teachings are fundamentally too different. (The only possibility is if the god is strongly schizophrenic.) Also see 2/225a above and 6/106b and 25/18a below. Another thing which is for sure, is that the existence of Allah was and is never proved. And a third: The only basis for the claims about Allah, is the word of a man who would be accepted by no court in any real democracy as a reliable witness, as he believed in the use of lies (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie, Kitman - the lawful half-truth), deception and even the breaking of words and oaths, but pay expiation if necessary (2/225a above, 5/89a+b, 16/91e, 66/2a below).

Both the Bible and the Quran states that the old Jewish and Christian god existed, even though the Quran wrongly mixes him with Allah (the question of other gods - f.x. the Hindu ones - we omit here). Thus there are at least two - - - if Allah exists.

004 3/2b: "- - - (Allah*), the Living - - -". There only are Muhammad's words for this - a man believing in using lies (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie - and Kitman - the lawful half-truth), deceit ("war is deceit" - and everything is jihad) and even broken words/promises/oaths (2/224e-f, 2/224-225, 5/89a+b, 16/91e,66/2a). And a man lying even in the Quran (f.x. 6/7a, 6/28c, 7/146f, and 20/70a to mention some - Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people to believe that such proof would not have effect. Also see the chapter about Muhammad lying in the Quran in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" - http://www.1000mistakes.com ). And also a man who liked power, respect and women. Such men often have proved unreliable. (Not to mention: A man modern science suspects was mentally ill - TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy).)

005 3/2c: "- - - (Allah is*) Eternal". Often claimed, never proved - not even his very existence is proved.

006 3/3a: “It is He (Allah*) Who sent down - - - the Book (the Quran*) - - -". There never was any proof for that the Quran really was from a god. Never. And with a reason - no god ever was involved in a book with so much wrong facts, contradictions, invalid logic, unclear meanings, etc.

007 3/3b: “It is He (Allah*) Who sent down to thee (Muhammad*) - - - the Book (the Quran*) - - -". There also (see 3/3a just above) is not one proof for that Muhammad was connected to a god - neither Muhammad nor Allah was ever able to prove anything essential at all. There only - only - are Muhammad's words for everything - a man of rather doubtful reliability and moral even according to Islam (if you look for the reality behind glorifying words).

008 3/3c: “It is He (Allah*) Who sent down to thee (Muhammad*) - - - the Book (the Quran*) - - -". There never and nowhere is any proof for that the Quran is from a god, not to mention from Allah. There only are Muhammad's words for this - a man of doubtful reliability and moral, liking power, riches for bribes, respect and women, and a thus man with much to gain from making people believe he was a prophet.

009 3/3d: “It is He (Allah*) Who sent down to thee (Muhammad*) - - - the Book (the Quran*), confirming what went before it - - -.” Here is indicated that it confirms the Bible. But the Arab original is cloudier: “- - - ma baynayadayhi - - -“ – literally “- - - that which is between its hands - - -“. Is it correct to guess that is means “- - - what went before - - -“? Or is it more correct to guess it means “- - - what is left now - - -.”? Muslim scholars dispute about it – most agree to the first alternative, but some to the other. And the literal meaning is yet another. Clear language?

010 3/3e: "- - - in truth - - -". The Quran frequently tells - but no proofs - it is speaking the truth. But the one who normally is most eager telling how truthful he is, is the cheat and deceiver. What at least is for sure, is that with so many mistakes, the Quran at best speaks partly the truth only.

011 3/3f: "- - - in truth - - -". See 2/2a above and 13/1f and 40/75 below.

012 3/3g: "- - - confirming what went before it (before the Quran*) - - -". This refers to Muhammad's wrong claim that the Bible was falsified - his only way out to save his religion and his platform of power when there were differences between what Muhammad claimed the Bible said, and what it really said. See 2/139a, 3/3g-i, 3/89b, 29/26c+e). Both science and Islam have proved very strongly that this claim is wrong by not being able to find one single falsification among the tens of thousands of old relevant manuscripts.

013 3/3h: "- - - confirming what went before it (before the Quran*) - - -". This refers to the Bible - see 3/3g just above. But the fundamentals of the Quran are so different from the ones in the Bible, that this claim is contradicted by the contents of the Bible. Also see 3/3i just below.

014 3/3i: “It is He (Allah*) Who sent down to thee (Muhammad*) - - - the Book (the Quran*), confirming what went before it - - -.” This refers to the Bible, which Muhammad claimed originally was like the Quran, but was falsified to become the Bible. But there are so deep and fundamental differences between the Bible and the Quran, that this claim simply is not true. This is even clearer as both science and Islam has proved very thoroughly that the Bible is not falsified. Neither science, nor Islam has been able to find one single falsification in the some 44ooo relevant manuscripts and fragments. Also neither of them has been able to find one single manuscript or fragment similar to texts from the Quran older than 610 AD and Muhammad. Even the numbers here - 44ooo to 0 - also tell that the claim is wrong - if Islam had been thought to all people through all times there had been traces from it. Also see 3/3h just above and 3/3j just below.

**015 3/3j: “- - - the Book (the Quran*), confirming what went before it (the Torah and the Bible*) - - -”. There are so many fundamental differences between the Quran and the Torah/Bible (especially NT), that the Quran definitely is no confirmation of any of the two others (see 2/89). The Quran and Islam tell that it is because those books are falsified, but for 1400 years no Muslim has ever offered proofs for that - only statements - and today it is proved by science and against their will and wish and intentions even more strongly by Islam (by being unable to find even one provable falsification) that those statements are wrong. If there had existed any proof for falsification, Islam had screamed about it at once - but the only thing they serve, are claims. Also see 2/130 and 3/3e above.

Be sure: Had Muslims found any proof for this, it had been written with BIG words every relevant and many irrelevant places.

##016 3/3k: “- - - the Book (the Quran*), confirming what went before it (the Torah and the Bible*) - - -”. (A3/3) here comments that it is not confirming the Bible as we know it today, but like it was originally. We quote: "- - - the fact - - - that in the course of the millennia the Bible has been subject to considerable and often arbitrary alterations - - -". To say the least of it: This is distasteful. Top Muslim scholars know that science long since has proved this claim is not true. They also know that Islam has proved the same even more strongly by not finding one single falsification in all those tens of thousands of old papers - and by not even being able to explain how the identical falsifications in very many points in each of may be hundreds of thousands of relevant manuscripts (some 44ooo have survived till today) spread over thousands of kilometers and many lands and cultures, and sects - and 2 religions - could be done - and how to make f.x. Jews and Christians and different sects make identical falsifications. The ones of them who know something about human nature, also know that to make bishops falsify the Bible (like Muslims claim - as normal for Muslims without documentation - happened in Nicaea - is exactly as easy as making imams or ayatollahs falsify the Quran, and for just the same reason: Strong religious belief simply do not work that way (this in addition to that the agenda for that council is well known, and changes of Biblical texts were not even mentioned). But all the same they write thing like this!

All the same he calls f.x. "arbitrary alterations" a fact.

Al-Taqiyya (lawful lie) of the most obvious kind.

But then they have no choice if they want to save the religion. And to save the religion is more essential than to check if it is a true or a made up one.

But if there is a next life, the consequences in believing in an invalid or made up religion is so severe, that the most essential and basic question should be just this: 'Is the religion a true one?' instead of using al-Taqiyyas (lawful lies) as argument for that "what our forefathers believed in must be true" and for saving the forefathers' old and never documented belies, only built on an apocryphal book dictated by a somewhat "special" man.

017 3/3l: "- - - He (Allah*) sent down the Law (of Moses) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible which claims it was sent down by Yahweh - a god very different from Allah, especially as you find him in NT.

###018 3/3m: "- - - He (Allah*) sent down - - - the Gospel (of Jesus) - - -." This is one of the really bad ones, as it is historically clear that the Gospels (there were/are 4, not 1 like Muhammad seems to have believed) were not sent down, but written by humans here on Earth. Most Muslims try to get out of the syrup by claiming they are speaking of an older one - one so old that even Jesus could read it as a child. Which shows they do not even know what the Gospels are: They are the history of Jesus' life, death, resurrection, and ascension to Heaven, and consequently could not be written until after all this had happened - actually the oldest one was written some 25-30 years after his death (= around 60 AD). Now, science says there may have existed an older one, but for very obvious reasons it cannot have been much older, not to mention old enough for Jesus to have read, and even more so read it as a child - not unless Islam claims full predestination, and then the free will of man disappears. This mistake simply is caused by the fact that Muhammad did not know the Bible - only legends, etc., and obviously was not aware of what the Gospels really are. And an older Gospel as source for 3 of the present ones, in case makes them even more reliable - an older, written source for them. (The other possible explanation for why 3 of the gospels are very similar, is that the oldest was used as a model for the 2 younger ones - a possibility Muslims never mention.)

019 3/3n: "- - - the Gospel (of Jesus) - - -". As the Gospels were written by men who could have changed their minds and never written a Gospel, this is a historical anomaly. See4/13d below.

020 3/3o: "- - - the Criterion - - -". Another word Muslim scholars do not know exactly what means. May be the old scriptures? - or may be "signs"? One simply does not know. Clear language in the Quran?

021 3/3p: "- - - (- - - right or wrong)". “The Message of the Quran” here (A3/4) tells that the sign here refers to the Gospel which Jesus got (or Evangelion – both words mean “glad tidings”). “The Message of the Quran” in English pretends that “Evangelion” is something special, but it simply is Greek for the same meaning. In Swedish (and some other languages) – this kind of small dishonesty which you meet too often in Islamic religious literature, is not possible in just this case, as they do not use the word “Gospel” – they use the word “Evangelium” (which confirms that it is not a special word, just another word meaning the same). Our remark about this simply is that absolutely nowhere there is found a trace of an Evangelion/Gospel which existed at the time of Jesus (science say there may have been one older than the existing ones, but this one in case also had to be written after Jesus’ death, as an Evangelion – Gospel in English – is the story of Jesus’ life, death, resurrection and ascension to Heaven, and could not be written until after this had happened. The absolute only place you find this claim – and as normal for Islam only as a not documented claim – is in the Quran (and later Islamic relevant(?) literature built on or around the Quran). But the Quran is a book with lots and lots of mistakes, told by a man with a very doubtful moral who on top of all used the stories as his platform of power – and a book made 600 – 650 years after the things happened, using mainly religious legends, etc. as sources. Islam will have to produce solid evidences to make this claim believable – not necessarily true, but at least believable.

Be sure: Had Muslims found any proof for falsifications in the Bible, it had been written with BIG words every relevant and many irrelevant places. But this kind of dishonesty from highly educated Muslims is very disgusting - and revealing. They know ever so well that Evangelion = Gospel.

And: Never any proof for that the Quran - or Muhammad - really was from a god. Never.

022 3/3q: "- - - (- - - right or wrong)". Beware that when the Quran uses words like these, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

023 3/4a: "_ - - those who reject Faith and the Signs of Allah, will suffer the severest penalty - - -". Contradicted by Yahweh and the Bible, at least concerning Jews and Christians.

024 3/4b: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

025 3/4c: “- - - Sign of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

026 3/4d: "- - - the severest penalty - - -". See 3/77b below.

027 3/4e: "(Allah is*) - - - the Exalted in Might - - -". He in case never clearly proved it.

028 3/4f: "(Allah is*) - - - Lord of Retribution". A suitable lord for the "religion of peace"?

029 3/5a: "From Allah, verily nothing is hidden on earth or in the heavens (plural and wrong*)". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.

030 3/5b: "From Allah, verily nothing is hidden - - -". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below..

031 3/5c: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

032 3/5d: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

*033 3/6a: “He (Allah*) is it Who shapes you in the womb as He pleases.” Conception is a most natural process - one that even Muslims like very much to indulge in, sometimes whether the woman is willing or not - and if the woman is your slave or prisoner, rape is a right, “lawful and god”, for you - just ask Muhammad, who according to Islam (among others Ibn Ishaq) practiced rape himself - f.x. Rayhana bint Amr and - at nearly 60 himself - the 17 year old Safijja bint Huayay, just after he had tortured her husband Kinana to death (as for Safijja one of his men, Abu Ayub, waited outside the tent in case she should resist so much that it became dangerous for Muhammad and he needed help - but he managed the rape without help).

The Quran often "high-jack" natural phenomena and uses them for glorification signs" or "proofs" for Allah - always without any documentation for that Allah really is the one behind the phenomenon..

034 3/6b: "There is no god but He (Allah*)". Well, what is for sure is that Allah is not the same god as Yahweh (if any of them exists) - the teachings are fundamentally too different. (The only possibility is if the god is strongly schizophrenic.) Then there are at least two gods if the old books tell the truth - if Allah exists. Also see 2/225a above and 6/106b and 25/18a below.

035 3/6c: "(Allah is*) - - - the Exalted in Might - - -". He in case never clearly proved it.

036 3/6d: "(Allah is*) - - - the Wise". Not if he made the Quran.

037 3/7a: “He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*): - - -”. Wrong. There are too many mistakes in the Quran - it cannot possibly be sent down by a god, not to mention by an omniscient god.

###038 3/7b: “He (Allah*) it is who has sent down to thee (Muhammad or Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*); in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they (all the verses which are to be understood literally*) are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts are perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking disorder, searching for hidden meanings, but no one knows the hidden meaning, except Allah.” But maybe this one is allegorical, too, because Islam and many a Muslim are hunting for the hidden meanings behind what they claim is an allegory as soon as there are errors and mistakes they cannot otherwise “explain” away. Is this because of “perversity” in their heart? – or perhaps because they do not have the brain, the guts and the backbone needed to meet the question: What does it mean that there are lots of mistakes and other wrongs in the Quran? – or: If all the mistakes and other wrongs in the Quran means that Islam is a made up religion like so many others – what then whit all us Muslims if there all the same is a Day of Doom? - - - and especially if there somewhere is a benevolent god whom Muslims have been prohibited from looking for?!

It is very clear here that the plain and obvious meaning in the texts mainly is the correct understanding. When you remember that Muhammad’s congregation mainly was uneducated and often naïve people, it is even easier to understand that this had to be the case. Similar in 6/114c-d, 11/1b, 16/103f, 18/1d-g, 18/1-2, 18/2a-b, 19/97b, 27/1b, 28/2, 41/3a-d, 43/2a-b, 44/2a-b, 44/58b-e, 54/17a, 54/32a-b, 54/40a.

###039 3/7c: “- - - in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they (all the verses that are to be understood literally*) are the foundation of the Book”: There is no doubt that the Quran is meant to be understood literally where nothing else is specified. Also see 3/7b just above and 11/1b below.

We also want to add a little more about this verse, as the addition is essential in some of all the places Islam/Muslims try to “explain” away statements, etc., that obviously are not true, by saying they are allegories:

There are some scattered verses said to be allegories or similar, and which are explained the meanings of. As the meanings are explained, these must be understood as included in “verses basic or fundamental”.

There are no clear allegories, where the meaning is not obvious or explained. There are a number of verses where the meaning is difficult or impossible to see. But unclear speech does not mean an allegory – an allegory is a (clear) story which means something else. Unclear speech only is indistinct or unclear speech.

###040 3/7d: ”- - - no one knows its hidden meaning except Allah”. In any text – even in Donald Duck – it is possible to find – or make up - hidden meanings. But this is strongly advised against in this verse (3/7): Only Allah is qualified to do that:”- - - no one knows its hidden meaning except Allah”. And who is better to know just that than Allah? – the maker of the book (?) - and the one revering the presumed "Mother Book" in Allah's home, a book which the Quran is claimed to be a copy of(without proofs as normal for Islam)?

But all the same a standard explanation used by Islam to “explain” any mistake or contradiction which is difficult to explain, is that it must not be understood literally, but allegorically. As soon as f.x. science shows that something in the Quran is wrong, that text switches from being “basic and fundamental – of established meaning”, to becoming an allegory. This in spite of Allah's and in spite of the Quran's clear words. It is one of the three most frequently used last ditch ways Islam and Muslims use to try to “explain” away things that cannot be explained. (The other ones are: “You cannot take the meaning from just one point or a few verse – you have to judge from the whole surah (or the whole Quran)", and: "You are just a Muslim hater or Israel lover and what facts you tell consequently are invalid and of no interest"). This in spite of that they themselves happily and with glee quotes and often even twists words far out of context to favor Islam (f.x. “There is (wrongly quoted) no compulsion in religion”) or to discredit any other religion). But 3/7 proves that to make up hidden meanings behind the words – f.x. changing its meaning to be allegorical where an allegory is not indicated – is wrong and strongly against Allah’s wish and order: It is the work of “those in whose hearts is perversity”.

Similar in 6/114c-d, 11/1b, 16/103f, 18/1d-g, 18/1-2, 18/2a-b, 19/97b, 27/1b, 28/2, 41/3a-d, 43/2a-b, 44/2a-b, 44/58b-e, 54/17a, 54/32a-b, 54/40a below.

####041 3/7e: “He (Allah*) Who has sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*): in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) (= to be read literally*); they (the verses to be read literally*) are the foundation of the Book (the Quran*): others are allegorical (there are a number of allegorical or similar verses in the Quran - they either are easy to see are allegorical, or the meaning is explained, or both*). But those in whose hearts is perversity (,*) follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking disorder, for its hidden meaning (= only bad persons seek the hidden meanings - also from the allegories*), but no one knows the hidden meanings except Allah (= the possibly hidden meanings are not for humans*)”.

In clear text: The Quran is to be read literary if nothing else is said or indicated - hidden meanings are for Allah, and trying to find hidden meanings are done by perverts. This is very essential for Muslims to remember when they are tempted to explain away mistakes and blunders as allegories with hidden meanings ever so often. There is no hidden meaning unless it is indicated this verse says, and only the bad humans looks for such hidden meanings.

The Quran and Islam for one thing claim that the clear and easy language is a proof for that the book is made by a god, and for another that the perfect language is a proof for the existence of Allah (no such proofs exist, so they try to find some). And not least that the book and its perfect language is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated - that the language is "clear and easy" and that only those "in whose hearts are perversity" go looking for hidden meanings - hidden meanings "it only is for Allah to understand".

On this background: What does the mistakes, etc. and the unclear language prove?

042 3/7f: "Those firmly grounded in knowledge - - -". See 26/83a below.

**043 3/7g: “- - - the whole of it (the Quran*) is from our Lord: - - - “. See the other comments. 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.under 3/7. No god ever was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran.

044 3/7h: "- - - and none will grasp the Message, except men of understanding". Psychology - who does not want to have the reputation of being a man of understanding? - especially so the naive and uneducated ones. Also see 13/3jbelow.

045 3/7i: "- - - Message - - -". But in case from whom or what, as no god is involved in any book of a quality like the Quran? - dark forces? - an illness (like TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy)? - one or more humans? - Muhammad himself?

046 3/8a: "Let not our (Muslims'*) hearts deviate now after Thou (Allah*) hast guided us - - -". = Let us not doubt Islam after we now have become Muslims.

047 3/8b: "- - - Thou (Allah*) hast guided us (by means of the Quran*) - - -". No god has guided via the Quran - too much is wrong for any god to be involved in that book.

048 3/8c: "- - - guided - - -". There is little reliable religious guidance in a book where no god has been involved. Also see 7/192a and 16/107 below.

***049 3/8d: "- - - Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure." The Quran has a strong tendency to claim and state small and great thing without any proof. Claims and words are very cheap if you are able to fast-talk yourself away from all questions of proofs. And in any case: He cannot be grantor for anything unless he really exists, which is not proved - there only is Muhammad's words for this, and Muhammad was a man with a very questionable moral and reliability even according to central Islamic literature (read what he demanded, incited, introduced, permitted and did, but skip the big glorious and cheap words, and you easily see the real person).

050 3/9a: "Thou (Allah*) art He that will gather mankind together against a Day about which there is no doubt - - -". Often claimed, never documented - only words and claims in a book where very much is wrong

051 3/9b: "Thou (Allah*) art He that will gather mankind together against a Day about which there is no doubt - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says this will be done by Yahweh. 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.

052 3/9c: “- - - a Day about which there is no doubt - - -“. The Day of Doom.

053 3/9d: “- - - a Day about which there is no doubt - - -“. Wrong. Once the end of the world will come. But if it will happen like told in the Quran, well, there is a good reason for doubt about this, as so much more is wrong in that book.

054 3/9e: "- - - no doubt - - -". See 2/2a above.

**055 3/9f: "- - - Allah never fails His promise." One more claim which only rests on the word of a man with a rather doubtful moral, who accepted both lies, half-truths and even breaking of oats. But in this case it may be true: There is no proof for that Allah ever gave any promise - only the words of a morally suspect person. If he never gave a promise, he also never failed one. (We may add that there never has been any proved case where Allah was proved to have given or to have kept a promise - and Islam had not given you a chance to forget it if it had ever happened.)

056 3/10a: "Those who reject Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative - in the ears of Muslims - names for non-Muslims.

057 3/10b: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran.

058 3/10c: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran. This is strongly contradicted by the Bible. 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.

059 3/10d: "- - - their (numerous) progeny - - -". Many children - sons - were and many places still are an ideal in Muslim areas. This in spite of that the world slowly is running out of some raw materials, and in spite of that we are balancing dangerously near an international shortage of food - if it was not for "the green revolution" in the second half of last century, we today had had too little food in the world. We have never - never - heard Islam reflect on this fact.

060 3/10e: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are themselves but fuel for the Fire." A terrible "whip" if it is true - but the only source for the claim is Muhammad - and the real, historical Muhammad was far from the reliable semi-saint Islam likes to claim. Also see 3/77b below.

061 3/10f: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

062 3/11a: "- - - Pharaoh - - -". Another kind of historical anomaly - people/prophets for Allah in f.x. Peru 10ooo BC would not have the slightest idea about what their "Quran" was talking about.

3/11b: “- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

063 3/11c: "- - - Allah is strict in punishment". See 3/77b below.

064 3/12a: "- - - those who reject Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative - in the ears of Muslims - names for non-Muslims.

065 3/12b: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran.

066 3/12c: "Soon will ye (non-Muslims*) be vanquished and gathered together and driven into Hell - - -". See 3/77b above.

067 3/12d: "Soon will ye (non-Muslims*) be vanquished and gathered together and driven into Hell - - -". Similar often claimed in the Quran, but never proved or documented.

068 3/13a: "There has already been for you (Muslims*) a Sign (proving Allah*) in the two armies that met in combat

069 3/13b: "- - - the two armies - - -". The Battle of Badr? Another battle? A general picture? Muslim scholars are not able to agree - - - and there never have been any real report about an army seeing double (there were some claims f.x. after the battle of Badr of seeing wrong numbers, but only claims). Unclear language and a claim.

070 3/13c: "- - - such as have eyes to see". See 13/3j below.

071 3/13d: "But Allah doth support with His aid whom He pleaseth - - -". There never was one single proved case in all history about Allah aiding anyone at all. If there had been, you bet Islam had told about it!

072 3/13e: "But Allah doth support with His aid whom He pleaseth - - -". A contrast: Allah aids whom he pleases, Yahweh whoever asks for it and deserves it.

073 3/14a: “Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet: women and sons; heaped-up hoards of gold and silver; horses - - - and cattle and well-tilled land”. Does this lining up of a man’s glorying in his possessions tell something about women’s position and kind of value in Muslim societies? And what about the value of books? - books are not even mentioned. We do not think the value of books (except the Bible, etc. and the Quran, etc.) is mentioned anywhere in the Quran - a fact which tells something about Muhammad and Allah and Islam. The same goes for non-religious knowledge. Also see 3/15c below.

074 3/14b: "- - - in nearness to Allah is the best of goals (to return to)". We are back to the old and fundamental problem: Only if Allah exists, if he is a god, if he is behind the Quran, and only of the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth.

075 3/15a: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. Wrong. See 2/97g above and 61/13e below.

076 3/15b: "- - - the righteous - - -". One of Muhammad's flattering names for Muslims.

077 3/15c: "- - - righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is as understood in the book's own partly immoral moral code.

078 3/15d: "- - - Gardens in the nearness of their Lord - - -". According to Hadiths good Muslims end in the Quran's and Islam's paradise in the 7 material heavens above Earth (heavens which do not exist) - Muhammad's "night journey" in the Quran, in Hadiths, and in other Islamic literature indicates the same. The claim is that Allah lives above the 7. heaven, and thus Muslims end up below him in the next life. But as these 7 heavens do not exist, something is wrong. As for life in the paradise, see 10/9f below.

079 3/15e: "- - - Gardens - - - with rivers flowing beneath - - -". The most common Arabism (see 4/13d below) in the Quran.

080 3/15f: "- - - with rivers flowing beneath - - -". The paradise of the Quran is the desert dwellers' dream - plenty of water is a main reward (if not it had not been so frequently mentioned in the Quran). For short we call it an Arabism - one of many in the Quran. But Allah is the god of all people? - also the ones outside deserts and hot temperature? It does not sound so in the Quran. The paradise dream always is the one of the desert dweller.

081 3/15g: “(In Paradise Muslim men*) find their eternal home; with Companions pure (+ their wives if they qualify for Paradise*), and the good pleasure of Allah.” Does this sentence tell something about how women are valued and looked upon in Islam? Also see 3/14 just above.

082 3/15h: "- - - eternal home - - -". 11/108c may indicate that the Quran's paradise is not quite forever. Muslims try to explain this away with that this in case means the inhabitants will be moved to an even better place, but this is just a wishful hope - it is not said in the Quran.

#083 3/15i: "- - - Companions pure (and holy) - - -". The famous houris. There in not a word anywhere in the Quran about how they enjoy being "companions" to rough and uneducated self-centered warriors. Such questions were of no interest to Muhammad and to his Muslims. Empathy hardly exists in the Quran. The same goes for the moral behind f.x. rape and forcing women - and girl children at least down to 9 years old - to sex.

###084 3/15j: "- - - Companions pure (and holy) - - -". This is one of the really strong differences to the Bible - f.x. see Matt. 22/30: The Biblical Paradise is totally different. Yahweh and Allah the same god with so different Paradises? Guess 5 times!

###085 3/15k: "- - - Companions pure (and holy) - - -". This also contradicts NT in another way: It is nowhere in the Quran directly said the houris were for sex, but that is the clear underlying message (besides in the Quran woman mainly are for 3 things: Housework, childbearing and sex - and in Paradise there is no housework or childbearing, so only sex is left). In the NT polygamy and concubinate is not accepted. The same god and basically the same religion? The only possible answer is no - such a strong no, that it is one of the proofs for that this claim from Muhammad is not true. Actually as polygamy, concubinate and permission to rape captured or slave women and girl children is so strong in the Quran, this point alone is enough to singlehanded prove that Muhammad's claim is wrong. And then there are all the other proofs in addition.

086 3/15l: "- - - in Allah's sight are (all) His servants”. We are once more back to the old and fundamental problem: Only if Allah exists, if he is a god, if he is behind the Quran, and only of the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth.

087 3/15 + 17: “His (Allah’s*) servants (Muslims*) - - - who show patience, firmness, and self-control - - -”. They are claimed to be good people and Muhammad claims Allah will help them in the end. May be he will - if he exists and is a major god.

088 3/16a: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

089 3/16b: "- - - forgive us (Muslims*) - - -". Allah cannot forgive unless he exists and is a god. There only are Muhammad's words for both, and how reliable are Muhammad's words?

090 3/16c: "- - - save us (Muslims*) - - -". Allah cannot save anyone either from the results of sins unless he exists and is a god. There only are Muhammad's words for both, and how reliable are Muhammad's words?

091 3/16d: "- - - the agony of the Fire". See 3/77b above.

092 3/16e: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

093 3/17a: "- - - true - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

094 3/17b: "- - - spend (in the way of Allah) - - -". Which means help the poor, help Islam, and give money to religious wars (nearly everything is religious war for parts of Islam) - those are the main causes.

095 3/17c: "- - - forgiveness - - -". See 3/16b above.

096 3/18a: "There is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". See 2/255a above and 6/106b and 25/18a below.

*097 3/18b: “- - - that is the witness of Allah - - -.” The problem is that there exists not one single witness from Allah – no miracle which could have been a witness, and nothing else. Only the words of a very doubtful man, written in a book with very many errors, contradictions, etc. Muslims her often talk about “signs” from the nature, but the nature is not a proof for Allah until it first is proved that it is created by a god, and further that it is proved that this god is Allah – words are very cheap, but only proofs are reliable. This claim is wrong until Islam proves that Allah really made it – and proves, not only claims like Muslims nearly always do.

098 3/18c: "- - - those endued with knowledge - - -". = good Muslims. As non-religious knowledge had little value, it was the religious knowledge - Islam - which counted. And this so strictly that intellectual activity outside Islam and related subjects became more or less prohibited, with the final closed down in 1095 AD with the book "The Incoherence of the Philosophers" by "the greatest Muslim after Muhammad", al-Ghazali. (It took some 100 years more in the far west.) Also see 13/3j below.

099 3/18d: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it means knowledge about or related to Islam. All other knowledge was "foreign knowledge" and frowned upon or worse - so much worse often that science and thinking came to an end in 1095 AD (see 3/18c just above) and not one single new idea or thought which could benefit humanity came from Muslim areas for nearly 900 years - and the only reason why the Muslims slowly came out of it, was strong influence from the outside. Even today all the Muslim area f.x. register fewer new patents a year than the state of California alone.

100 3/18e: "- - - standing firm on justice". Not unless the Islamic moral code and parts of sharia and the rules for war are changed. Also see 1/1a above.

101 3/18f: "There is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". See 2/255a (and 2/265b) above and 6/106b and 26/18a below.

102 3/18g: "(Allah is*) - - - the Exalted in Power - - -". He in case never clearly proved it.

103 3/18h: "(Allah is*) - - - the Wise". Not if he made the Quran.

104 3/19a: "- - - nor did the People of the Book (mainly Jews and Christians*) dissent therefrom - - -." To say this is not true, must be the understatement of the year - Islam has always met strong disbelief from both Jews and Christians, MUCH to the chagrin of Muhammad. This is one of the places in the Quran where it at least is clear he knew he was lying when he told this - he was too intelligent not to know what Jews and Christians generally meant about his new religion.

105 3/19b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans (though the Sabeans play a small role in the Quran - it is not even quite clear who they were. They may have been a monotheistic sect in Arabia or a Christian sect which you still find traces of in Iraq - these two explanations many Muslims prefer. But the most likely explanation is that they were the people in the mainly Christian Saba/Sabah/Sheba in what now is Yemen - they became Christians via Ethiopia).

106 3/19c: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly - no claimed prophet or others living before the Bible or at least the Torah was made, would understand what their "Quran" here meant. See 4/13d below.

107 3/19d: "- - - after knowledge had come to them (the people of the Book - see 3/19a+b above*) - - -". But that was exactly Muhammad's problem; they had so much knowledge about the Bible, etc., that they saw a lot was wrong when Muhammad claimed his religion was the same as in the Bible - and the same god.

108 3/19e: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran speaks about such things, it normally only meant religious knowledge, and primarily Islam. All other knowledge - called "foreign knowledge" or similar - over some time simply came to a standstill for 800-900 years because of strong opposition and dislike from Islam. (Even today many Muslim areas are quite backward partly because of the domination of the religion over other aspects of life).

109 3/19f: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

110 3/19g: “But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.” He can call no one to account as long as not a single proved sign exists to deny. He also cannot call anyone to account unless he exists and is a major god, neither of which is proved. Also see 3/77b below.

111 3/20a: "So if they (non-Muslims*) dispute with thee (Muhammad/Muslims*) - - -". A historical anomaly - no reader of their copy of the claimed "Mother Book" before this had happened - a "Mother Book" of which the Quran was a similar copy, and a "Mother Book" which the Quran and Islam claim was sent down to prophets for Allah through all times and to all places - could know what or whom this was about, as it had not happened yet at their time. Also it would be a foretelling about the future for them - foretellings you find no traces of in the Quran. See 4/13d below.

112 3/20b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". See 2/146a and 3/19a+b above.

113 3/20c: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly - no claimed prophet or others living before the Bible or at least the Torah was made, would understand what their "Quran" here meant. See 4/13d below.

114 3/20d: "- - - those who are unlearned - - -". = Those who do not know Islam. Only this knowledge really counts in the Quran.

115 3/20e: “If they (“infidels”*) do (become Muslims*), they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, thy duty is to convey the Message - - -.” This – that his duty only was to convey the message, was deeply contradicted – and abrogated by at least those of these verses that came after surah number 3 (in 625 AD), and we add the ones of them that came before, too, because Islam says an older verse in clear cases can abrogate a younger one (it is the one exception from the standard rule that the newest abrogates the older ones). Anyhow it is a clear-cut contradiction. 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 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran". Muhammad became quite an enforcer.(At least 29 contradictions).

116 3/20f: "- - - right guidance - - -". See 2/2a above.

117 3/20g: "- - - right guidance - - -". Strongly contradicted by the much different teaching and moral rules, etc. in the Bible - especially in NT. 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.

118 3/20h: "- - - guidance - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107 below.

119 3/20i: "- - - the Message (the Quran*) - - -". But is it really a message? - and in case from whom? All the errors, etc. makes it clear it is not from any god, and the remaining possibilities are: 1) Dark forces - f.x. parts of the Quran's moral code, code of war and sharia laws may indicate this. 2) A mental illness - f.x. TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like modern medical science strongly suspects. 3) One or more cold brains, like f.x. Muhammad himself - all the mistaken facts which are in accordance with (wrong) science there at that time, and also all the "Arabisms" in the Quran may indicate this.

120 3/20j: "- - - in Allah's sight are (all) His servants". If they are in his sight, why then did he have to test them? Also see 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

121 3/20k: "- - - in Allah's sight are (all) His servants". This only can be true if Allah exists and in addition is a god.

122 3/21a: "- - - those who deny the Signs of Allah - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative - for Muslims - names for non-Muslims.

123 3/21b: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

124 3/21c: "- - - right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

125 3/21d: "- - - those - - - who slay the prophets - - -". One of Muhammad's negative names for Jews and Christians. (But see 3/21e just below.)

126 3/21e: "- - - those - - - who slay the prophets, and slay those who teach just dealing with mankind - - -" = non-Muslims, may be especially Jews (Christians should go free here, as the known prophets lived before this religion started, except for Jesus, and he was not killed by Christians). This with slaying the prophets is an often repeated black spot, but if you read the Bible, you will see that in reality few of the known prophets were slain. But it is a very good and heavy argument when speaking to people not knowing this. And as for "teaching just dealing with mankind" - was the Muslim "dealing with mankind" through history "just"? - only the ones who do not know history - or Muslims - can answer "yes" to this question - and Muslims only because most of them only have been told a very colored story about how heroic their heroes have been and how Muslims have won and have been rich and mighty and how "just and good" everything have been - totally without empathy with the victims or giving even one thought to how life - or death - became for the victims, not to mention total destruction of whole cultures, and the slowness of the rebuilding of culture and civilization in spite of Islam and its struggle against all knowledge not related to religion - cfr. fanatics like al-Ghazali. A rebuilding which finally had to take place in the West - outside the old area of culture from the eastern Mediterranean to India (China stagnated for other reasons). The old cultural center in what we call the Middle East simply was destroyed as a center for knowledge, and a new one had to be built from scratch in Europe. One may wonder what had happened to the world, if f.x. Persia and other cultural centers in the region had not been destroyed, and later again had its science, philosophy and knowledge suppressed around 1100 AD after a partial rebuilding. From the Muslim area there came not one single new idea or thought which could benefit humanity after ca. 1100 AD - a little later in the western Muslim area.

127 3/21f: "- - - just dealing - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and as bad sharia laws (as opposed to "do against others like you want others do against you").

128 3/21g: "- - - a grievous penalty". See 3/77b above.

129 3/22a: "- - - those whose work will bear no fruit in this world and in the Hereafter - - -." One of Muhammad’s many negative names for non-Muslims.

130 3/22b: "They (non-Muslims*) are those whose work will bear no fruit in this world and in the Hereafter - - -." Wrong. At least in this world history has shown the Quran very wrong on this point - all real progress for mankind in this world for hundreds of years have come from outside the Muslim area. As for the possible next world, we have no real knowledge - beliefs and even strong beliefs and beliefs in many directions and religions included Islam, yes, but no real knowledge. It must also be mentioned that "knowledge" is a very weighty word which everybody wants connected to themselves. You see this in the obvious way also the Quran and Islam try to high-jack the word: If they have no real knowledge based on discovered facts, they try to tell that strong ideas, strong beliefs, strong wishful thinking = knowledge. Because somebody you believe in have told you so, you call things "knowledge" - without checking if it is true, they claim "instinctive 'knowledge'" (= thoughts or conclusions corresponding with your own ideas - much stressed by f.x. Islam), and also other names of non-scientific "knowledge". You even frequently meet the claim that this kind of "knowledge" is the real knowledge, and that scientific knowledge is something suspect - a point of view often peddled by f.x. religious groups where science shows they are on thin ice or wrong on some or many points - like Islam. Muslims is one of the groups who pooh-pooh fact based science, because such science often shows Islam to be wrong (cfr. all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran, or f.x. al-Ghazali's ideas of a good intellectual culture) - a pose it is not too difficult to defend because in the forefront of science there always will emerge theories which later turns out to be wrong - science checks and corrects and goes on, but the ones who cling to their own ideas, picks up the discarded wrong theories:"This was wrong and this was wrong and this was wrong - that means all was and is wrong, but our never checked ideas or wishful thinking are right!"

They NEVER mention the simple fact that a scientist simply is a person knowing much about what he is talking about, and that mostly he, therefore, is right.

131 3/23a: "- - - those who have been given a portion of the Book - - -". This must refer to Jews and Christians - the Bible according to the Quran and Muhammad originally was similar to the Quran, but only a portion of the original, Quran-like texts remains in the Bible - - - they claim. (The only way Muhammad could save his new religion and platform of power, was to claim the Bible was falsified, when it turned out that the Bible was very different from the tales and legends he believed were from the Bible, and used in the Quran - no god ever had made such a mistake).

132 3/23b: "- those who have been given a portion of the Book - - -" This refers to the old and wrong (proved wrong by science and by Islam) Muslim claim that the Bible is falsified. The claim is that the Bible originally like the Quran was a copy of the claimed "mother book" revered by Allah and his angels in Heaven, and thus a parallel to the Quran - a claim proved wrong by science and by Islam by being unable to find any proved falsification in the tens of thousands of relevant old documents, and thus unable to find that the Bible in the old times was similar to the Quran. Also both science and Islam has been unable to find scriptures similar to the Quran older than 610 AD and Muhammad, in spite of the claim that there have been more than 100ooo prophets for Islam through the times and all over the world (Hadiths mentions the number 124ooo, and even that may just be a symbolic number for something even bigger) - not one such copy or fragment has been found - - - but some 44oooo relevant manuscripts from the time before 610 AD quoting the Bible, a not falsified Bible. 0 to 44ooo are odds too strong to believe in - there are limits even to naivety (unless you are religiously blind).

133 3/23c: "- - - the Book of Allah (the Quran*)". Wrong, at least if Allah is omniscient - no god makes a book with that many mistakes, contradictions and other errors, not to mention have such a book in his own home/heaven as a revered "mother book" like the Quran claims. (13/39, 43/4, 85/21-22).

134 3/23d: "- - - a party of them (Jews and Christians*) turn back and decline (the arbitration)". The reason for this was very simple: They knew the Bible and saw the difference between what Muhammad claimed it told, and what it really told.

135 3/23d: "- - - a party of them (Jews and Christians*) turn back and decline (the arbitration)". A historical anomaly - no reader of their copy of the claimed "Mother Book" before this had happened - a "Mother Book" of which the Quran was a similar copy, and a "Mother Book" which the Quran and Islam claim was sent down to prophets for Allah through all times and to all places - could know what or whom this was about, as it had not happened yet at their time. Also it would be a foretelling about the future for them - foretelling you find no traces of in the Quran. SOMETHING IS WRONG. See 4/13d below.

**136 3/24a: "This because they (non-Muslims*) say (to Muhammad or Muslims*): 'The Fire shall not touch us but for a few number of days'". This is one of the very many sentences in the Quran which could not reliably be written into a book - the claimed "Mother Book" - claimed to be made before man was created or even much earlier, unless Allah's predestination you find many places in the Quran, is 100% and absolute - just like the Quran claims. If man had free will - even a little bit of it - he could change his mind and say something else (or the laws of chaos had long sins thrown the story far off track because someone had changed something earlier) and the text in the claimed "Mother Book" the Quran is claimed to be a copy of, would not be correct, or at the very least not reliable. So either predestination is absolute - but how then can Allah reward or punish humans for what he forces them to do? - or this is written after it happened.

As mentioned there are many - very many - places in the Quran where the text could not be reliably written unless the predestination is absolute. Actually this goes for all points where a human could act or talk differently if he changed his mind a little, and also all the places where someone in times before - perhaps long before - what is described, changed something and threw the story off track. If f.x. David's father had not sent David to his brothers in the battlefields with food (1. Sam.17/17-18), Goliath had not been killed - and what then? If the Quran is as old as Muhammad and Islam claimed and claims, the only possibility for that these very many points could be reliably written into the book, is that predestination is absolute. If man has free will, even just a little, he can change things and change the future, and then the reliability of the old text in the claimed "Mother Book" of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy, is gone.

But if Allah's predestination is absolute, it is morally impossible to defend his punishment of humans for their sins - sins he with his predestination has forced them to perform.

Muhammad needed predestination to make his warriors believe war was not dangerous, but he needed free will for man to justify punishment for sins, included disobeying Muhammad or Allah (which on this Earth also meant Muhammad). He was unable to combine the two - as is Islam even today - - - for the simple reason that total predestination and free will for man is not possible to combine. Islam admits this, but lamely states that all the same it must be true, because Allah said so in the Quran(!) The ultimate defeat for the brain against blind belief.

But in the immaterial parts of existence there are things impossible even for omnipotent gods, and this claimed combination is one of them (it actually is a version of the so-called "time travel paradox", a paradox which is proved unsolvable). Also see 2/51b above.

137 3/24b: "The Fire shall not touch us but for a few number of days". This is an incorrect reference to the Catholic Christians' dogma about Purgatory - it started/starts with years, not days. All the same may be Muhammad had a point here, as the dogma about Purgatory is not from the Bible.

138 3/24c: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

139 3/24d: “- - - their (Jews, Christians*) forgeries (of the Bible*) - - -“. The Quran, Muhammad, Islam and most Muslims claim that the Bible is falsified – they claim, but NEVER document or in other ways prove it. Not only claim it is falsified, but that it is falsified on purpose. This in spite of the fact that science long since has proved it is not falsified - one knows literally thousands of relevant old papers and scraps of paper (some 12ooo (included some copies of 300 the Gospels) older than 610 AD + some 32ooo other relevant references - quotes - to the Bible in other manuscripts), which documents it has not been falsified – and with royal disregard for the fact that as the Bible was spread over enormous distances, here, there and everywhere, it also was physically impossible to co-ordinate the falsification of each and every copy all over the world, so that all the falsifications were identical, not to mention that all similar points and all references to all these in other papers also had to be falsified correspondingly. And not to forget: The falsifications of the older manuscripts all had to be so cleverly done, that even modern science of today cannot find traces of scratching, chemical blotting out, wrong ink or wrong handwriting where new words are filled in, etc., etc. "Those facts does not matter - we need the Bible to be falsified, because if not something is seriously wrong with Islam. Period!!"

One more pertinent question: How do Muslims explain that it was possible to make f.x. Jews and Christians and sects agree on identical falsifications? There ought to be a limit to naivety, but we do not think there are - not in this case at least.

***Demand proofs next time a Muslim tells you the Bible is falsified. His game is to throw not documented claims around, and demand proofs from you for the opposite – which can be difficult if you do not have enough knowledge. But it his duty to prove his claims – not yours to disprove them. NB: They do not have such proofs – if they had had only a feeble one, be sure you and the rest of the world had heard about it by some ones using big letters. Actually the lack of documentation from Islam is the best of proofs for that the claim is something made up - even better than the same proofs from science, as Islam have very strong motifs for finding such proofs, and has been unable to do so. And as actually; to throw loose claims and statements around, pretending that they are facts, are typical for Muslims and Islam in religious debates, not to mention in religious propaganda - the game is to win the debate, not to find out what really is true.

But to claim that the Bible was falsified, was the only way out for Muhammad to explain away his wrong quotes from the Bible – and it still is the only way out for Islam. If they admit that the Bible is not falsified each and every place the Quran “collides” with it, this means to admit that Islam is a made up religion – which is too difficult to admit for the believers, and too expensive for the leaders.

We may add that it is quite normal for fringe sects – which Islam once was – to claim that the mother religion(s) is wrong and they themselves are the only ones who are right. To be believed on this point by us, Islam will have to produce real proofs, not only cheap and loose words to back up their claim. As there exist so many old papers, proving it should be very easy - - - if the claims were true.

Islam’s claim here simply is proved wrong by science and with even stronger proofs from Islam – unless Islam produces proofs showing the opposite. But proofs, not only loose claims like they normally use.

Also see 2/75b, 2/130 above and 3/77a below.

140 3/24e: "- - - their (Jews and Christians claimed*) forgeries (of the Bible*) deceive them as to their own religion". In more plain words: The claimed forgeries of the Bible have made their religions false ones. But as both science and Islam thoroughly have proved that there are no forgeries in the Bible, what does this sentence then in reality tell? And what does it indirectly, but very clearly tell about Islam?

141 3/24f: "- - - forgeries - - -". See 2/2b above.

142 3/25a: "- - - We (Allah*) gather them (mankind) together against a Day about which there is no doubt - - -". Often claimed, never documented - only words and claims in a book where very much is wrong

143 3/25b: "- - - We (Allah*) gather them (mankind) together against a Day about which there is no doubt - - -". Contradicting by the Bible, where it is Yahweh who does this.

144 3/25c: "- - - a Day about which there is no doubt - - -". The Day of Doom.

145 3/25d: “- - - a Day about which there is no doubt - - -“. Wrong. Once the end of the world will come. But if it will happen like told in the Quran, well, there is a good reason for doubt about, as so much more is wrong in that book.

146 3/25e: "- - - no doubt - - -". See 2/2b above.

147 3/25f: "- - - each soul - - -". This is not necessarily wrong, as man is made from body and soul. But remember that according to the Quran man is resurrected bodily in the possible next life. (A necessity for Muhammad, as the pleasures in the Islamic Paradise mainly are bodily pleasures - that is all this omniscient and omnipotent god has to offer).

148 3/25g: "- - - each soul will be paid out (= get the reward*) just what it has earned - - -". There are different gardens in Paradise according to Islam - one better than the other. Exactly how many is not clear, but at least four or six and may be more. In addition there are the higher heavens. The better a Muslim - and the better and more willing a warrior - the better heaven you go to. (This is contradicted by the claim that those of your family who are good Muslims, will be gathered together in Paradise - it is extremely unlikely that all in a family (remember we talk about extended families like normal in the old times and some places also today) qualifies for the same level of Paradise). In Hell there seems to be 7 parts, one worse than the other.

149 3/25h "- - - each soul will be paid out (= get the reward*) just what it has earned, without (favor or) injustice". There is no correspondence between the after all small sins which sends most sinners to Hell, and the sadistic and never ending terrible punishment they get there - a high degree of injustice.

150 3/25i: "- - - (no*) injustice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expression like this it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and law. Besides: Is there justice in the bestial and sadistic unending punishment in Hell compared to the after all not too bad sins most of the sinners have performed?

151 3/25j: "- - - (no*) injustice - - -". But what is fair and what is injustice if it in reality is Allah who has predestined everything you have said and done, like the Quran states many places? Is there at all any fair reward or punishment for words Allah has forced you to say and acts he has forced you to do, all according to his Plan?

152 3/26a: "O Allah! Lord of Power (and Rule)- - -". In case a never clearly proved power.

153 3/26b: "O Allah! Lord of Power (and Rule)- - -". Contradicted by the Bible which claims that all power belongs to Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

154 3/26c: “Thou (Allah*) givest Power to whom Thou pleasest, and Thou strippest off Power whom Thou pleasest: Thou enduest with honor whom Thou pleasest, and thou bringest low whom Thou pleasest: in thy hand is all Good. Verily over all things Thou hast power.” Accept your leaders and you position, because it is all decided by Allah - Allah has the power and makes all decisions. At least according to the claim. This claim also "explains" why some has a good life and others not.

155 3/26d: "- - - in Thy (Allah's*) hand is all Good". Only if he exists and in addition is a major god.

156 3/26e: "- - - in Thy (Allah's*) hand is all Good". Contradicted by the Bible - according to the Bible there is some good in Yahweh's hands, too, to make an understatement. 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.

157 3/26f: "- - - Good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expression like this it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

158 3/26g: "Verily - - -". See2/2b above.

159 3/26h: "- - - over all things Thou (Allah*) hast Power". See 3/26a+b above.

160 3/27a: “Thou (Allah*) causest the Night to gain on the Day, and Thou causest the day to gain on the Night - - -“. Wrong. Night and day is a natural result of the Earth spinning in the light from the sun. If Islam claims what the Quran says above, they will have to prove it. Also see 11/7a below.

161 3/27b: "- - - Thou (Allah*) bringest Living out of the dead - - -". This interesting claim is repeated in different versions several places in the Quran - interesting because Allah never has proved he is stronger than death (actually he never has proved anything at all, included his own existence), except claims in a few repeated legends or fairy tales. But Yahweh has proved it several times if either the Quran or the Bible tells the truth on this point. (F.x. 1. Kings 17/22, 2.Kings 4/34-35, Matt. 9/25, Matt 27/52, Luke 6/14, Luke 8/53, John 11/43-44, Acts 9/40, Acts 20/10 - and Jesus himself according to the Bible).

162 3/27c: "- - - and Thou (Allah*) bringest the Dead out of the Living - - -". Here one could be flippant and point to that his - or at least Muhammad's - followers have been good at that through the centuries, and that terrorists and others keep that tradition alive.

163 3/27d: “Thou (Allah*) gives sustenance to whom Thou pleases - - -”. Perhaps - but many gods say the same, and like them neither Allah nor Muhammad ever proved one single millimeter, as a contrast to Jesus if the Bible tells the truth. One more thing: This - that Allah does what he finds wisest - also is one of Islam's standard explanations why Muslims are not always on top (have "most sustenance"). Also see 11/7a below.

##164 3/28a: “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah - - -". What does this tell about Islam and also about the reasons for Islam's and Muslims' superiority complex and thus about why they are reluctant to mingle with others or be integrated in non-Muslim societies? - many want the good money they can make in the West and some other places, but that is it.

We may add that this verse is one of many in the Quran telling a sad story - and one of the many verses which prepared and prepares the ground for aggression against all "infidels" - aggression falsely called Jihad (holy war of defense).

##165 3/28b: “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah - - -.” Social pressure, but may be meant defensive originally, as it is from 625 AD before Muhammad gained full control in 630 AD it is offensive today. This verse is contradicted (really made stricter) and often “killed” because it is too soft on non-Muslims, 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).

166 3/28c: “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah, except by way of precaution, that ye may guard yourself from them." Only if the non-Muslims are too strong for you and may hurt you, you may form good friendship with them!! Comments?

167 3/28d: “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah, except by way of precaution, that ye may guard yourself from them." Deception, not honesty, also in friendship.

168 3/28e: "- - - his final goal is to Allah". If he exists and is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth on this point.

169 3/28f: "- - - his final goal is to Allah". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that the final goal is Yahweh - in spite of the Quran's never documented claims quite another god, with a very different teaching and religion, especially as you meet him in NT and the New Covenant (f.x. Luke 22/20). 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.

170 3/29a: "Whether ye hide what is in your hearts or reveal it, Allah knows it all". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

171 3/29b: "- - - heavens - - -". Plural and wrong. See 2/22d above.

172 3/29c: "And Allah has the power over all things". Well, at least the Quran claims so. There are so many loose and never proved or documented claims in the Quran, that you just can go looking and you will find - they are easy to see. Claims like this any priest in any religion can as easily claim for his god(s) as long as one can evade all requests for proofs - words and loose claims are that cheap.

173 3/30a: "On the Day when every soul is confronted - - -". = The Day of Doom.

174 3/30b: "- - - good (deeds*) - - -".Beware that when the Quran uses expression like this it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

175 3/30c: "- - - evil (deeds*) - - -".Beware that when the Quran uses expression like this it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

176 3/30d: "But Allah cautions (via the Quran*) you (to remember) Himself". As no god has sent down a book of a quality like the Quran, it is not Allah who cautions about this.

177 3/30e: "And Allah is full of kindness to those who serve Him". Is he? - with all his demands for war and blood, whit his partly immoral moral code, with his partly unjust laws, etc.?

178 3/30f: "- - - kindness - - -".Beware that when the Quran uses expression like this it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

179 3/31a: "If ye do love Allah, follow me (Muhammad) - - -". A strong version of Muhammad's mantras used to glue himself to his platform of power; his god.

180 3/31b: "If ye do love Allah, follow me (Muhammad) - - -". No comments necessary: The words of many a maker of sects and religions - and the dream for any highway-men boss, any warlord, any dictator.

181 3/31c: "If ye do love Allah, follow me (Muhammad): for Allah will love you and forgive your sins - - -". Partly strengthening his - Muhammad's - platform of power, and partly pep-talk - including a promise which was very cheap for Muhammad, especially if Allah does not exist.

182 3/31d: "If ye do love Allah, follow me (Muhammad): for Allah will love you and forgive your sins - - -". Allah cannot forgive sins unless he exists and is a god.

183 3/31e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a, 2/2b and 3/31d above.

184 3/32a: See 3/29c above. And there are MANY more.

185 3/32b: "Obey Allah and his Prophet (Muhammad*)". Muhammad's standard mantra in a strengthened version - Muhammad is gluing himself to the god, plus demanding obedience (on Earth obeying Allah = obeying Muhammad). There are many, many like this in the Quran. Religion is a solid and trustworthy platform of power for its "prophet" normally - in any sect and religion.

186 3/32c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Prophet - - -". No omniscient god can be behind a man telling so much wrong facts and other mistakes - and no good and benevolent god would be behind a teaching demanding such a partly immoral moral code (compare it to the gold standard: "Do onto others what you want others do onto you, and weep - or laugh) and so much hate and blood and dishonesty.

187 3/32d: "- - - His (Allah's*) Prophet - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

188 3/32e: "- - - Prophet - - -". But Muhammad was no real prophet. The definition of a prophet was a person who could see at least parts of the unseen, and thus a person who:

Have the gift of and close enough connection to a god for making prophesies.

Makes prophesies that always or at least mostly come true.

Makes so frequent and/or essential prophesies, that it is a clear part of his mission.

A few things Muhammad said, came true – like it has to do for any person saying many things through many years – and most of what he said which did not come true, was forgotten (also this is what normally happens if it is nothing spectacular). But he did not guess the future correctly often - actually he statistically and according to the laws of probability should have "hit the mark" far more often by sheer chance than he did - there just are a few cases where Muslims will claim he foretold something correctly, and few if any of them are "perfect hits". But then the Quran makes it pretty clear that even though he was intelligent, he had little fantasy and that he also was nearly unable to make innovative thinking (nearly all his tales and his ideas in reality were "borrowed" ones - though often twisted to fit his new religion).

The main things here are that Muhammad never indicated that anything of what he said was meant as prophesies, that he never indicated, not to mention claimed, that he had the gift of prophesying, that it nowhere is documented that all/most of what he said about the future came true (point 2 above), and finally that both he and Islam said and says that Muhammad was unable to see the unseen (extra revealing here is that the old Biblical title for a prophet, was "a seer" - one who saw the unseen (f.x. 1. Sam. 9/9)) and also that there were no miracles connected to Muhammad “except the Quran” (prophesying is a kind of miracle - seeing what has not yet happened). (This fact that Islam admits there were no miracle connected to Muhammad "except the revelation of the Quran" also is a solid proof for that all the miracles connected to Muhammad mentioned in the Hadiths, are made up stories). Also see 30/40a and 30/46a, and we also should add that his favorite wife (and infamous child wife) Aishah according to Hadiths (f.x. Al-Bukhari) states that anyone saying Muhammad could foresee things, were wrong.

Verse 7/188b also is very relevant here: "If I (Muhammad*) had knowledge of the Unseen (= what is hidden and what has not happened yet*), I should have - - -". IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT MUHAMMAD DID NOT HAVE THE PROPHETS' ABILITY TO SEE "THE UNSEEN" - he was no real prophet.

Also relevant here is that the original title of the Jewish prophets was not "prophet" but "seer" - one who saw at least parts of the unseen. (F.x. 1. Sam. 9/9#, 1. Sam. 9/11, 1. Sam. 9/18, 1. Sam. 9/19, 2. Kings. 17/13, 1. Chr. 9/22, 1. Chr. 26/28, 1. Chr. 29/29, 2. Chr. 9/29, 2. Chr. 16/7, 2. Chr.16/10, 2. Chr. 19/2, 2. Chr. 29/25, Amos 7/12, Mic. 3/7 - some places the two titles even are used side by side). Muhammad thus so definitely was no seer - prophet - even according to his own words; he had no "knowledge of the unseen".

Many liked - and like - the title prophet, and there have been made other definitions for this title - the most common of these are "one who brings messages from a god", or "one who represents a god", or "one who acts/talks on behalf of a god". But the fact remains: Without being able to prophesy, he or she is no real prophet. A messenger for someone or something - ok. An apostle - ok. But not a real prophet.

***This is a fact no Muslim will admit: Muhammad in reality simply was no real prophet or seer. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself – or perhaps an apostle – but not a real prophet. He only “borrowed” that impressive and imposing title. It is up to anyone to guess why.

It also is remarkable that Muhammad relatively seldom used the title "prophet" about himself in the Quran. He mostly used the title "Messenger", even though messenger in reality means an errand-boy (Muslims try to make this title something big and imposing, but this is the meaning of it). "Prophet" on the other hand is a heavy and impressive title telling a lot about the person. May the reason for why he did not use it so often, be that he knew he did not have what it took to merit that title, and was a little careful using it, so as not to provoke questions or comments? (And is this also the reason why Muslims try to pretend that "messenger" is something more impressive and heavy than "prophet"?)

Also see 30/40h below.

189 3/32f: "- - - those who reject Faith". One of Muhammad's many negative - for Muslims - names for non-Muslims.

190 3/32g: "- - - Faith". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

191 3/33a: "Allah did choose - - - the family of Abraham - - - above all people". Arabs claim - as normal without any proofs - to be the descendants of Ishmael, the illegitimate son of Abraham (in spite of that according to the Bible Ishmael's descendants settled on the border of Egypt (1. Mos. 25/18) - not in Arabia - and became a powerful people there "with twelve tribal rulers" (1.Mos. 25/16)), and they (the Arabs) claims they thus are descendants of Abraham. Is this the reason why Arabs through the first centuries claimed to be better than other Muslims, and thus caused lots of and lasting strife in Islam? Also see 2/125a and 2/127a above.

192 3/33b: "- - - Noah - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

193 3/33c: "- - - Abraham - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

194 3/33d: "- - - Imran - - -". Imran was the father of Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, but Muhammad knew the Bible so little and had so vague ideas about its contents, that he believed Imran also was the father of Mary (mother of Jesus) some 1200 years later (actually he believed Mary and Miriam was the same person) - any god had known better, so who made the Quran? Well, the likely reason for the mistake is that in Arab both Mary and Miriam is written Maryam. Also see 3/35a+b below. An extra tit-bit here is that as Muhammad believed Miriam, sister of Moses, and Mary, mother of Jesus was the same woman, and as he further believed Mary was part of the Trinity, Miriam - sister of Moses - has to be part of the Trinity. Muhammad had got his Bible pretty mixed up to say the least of it. No god would make such historical and religious nonsense. Then who made the Quran?

195 3/33e: "- - - Imran - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

196 3/34: "- - - Allah heareth and knoweth all things". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

***197 3/35a: ”Imran’s wife - - -”. The Quran here is talking about the mother of Mary (see also 3/33d above). But Imran was the father of Aaron, Moses and Miriam, who lived some 1200 years earlier! Muhammad did not know the Bible very well, and he thought Mary was Miriam, the sister of Aaron and Moses. In 19/28 this is directly said, when talking about Mary: “O sister of Aaron”. It is likely that the reason for this mistake is that in Arab Mary (mother of Jesus) and Miriam (the older sister of Moses and Aaron) are written the same way: Maryam. With his limited knowledge of the Bible Muhammad believed it was the same woman. Any god had known better. We may add that some Muslims say it is not the same Imran, but scientists agree on that Muhammad meant the same man - the Imran who "was chosen by Allah" like Adam, Noah and Abraham (see 3/33a) - the father of Aaron, Moses - - - and Maryam/Miriam. That Muhammad really was wrong here, and thought Mary was the sister of Aaron and Moses, is documented by the fact that according to Hadith (the other Muslim main source of information about their religion and about Muhammad) Muhammad was corrected, and he tried to find explanations to repair the mistake (without success). He also did not add information showing that he and Allah for some reason was right in his mistaken statement all the same.

You will also meet Muslims telling that the Quran does not mean that Mary really was the sister of Aaron (they say it was meant figuratively – a normal way out for Muslims, when things are difficult to explain), and that the book does not mean that she was the daughter of Imran - only a descendant of him. Islam should after so many hundreds of years have found better “explanations” - “explanations” which on top of all is contradicted by the fact that it is told already Mohammad himself tried to correct the mistake, but without success as mentioned. But there is no other explanation they can try to use. Also see 19/28 below.

**** There also is another aspect of all the points which are wrong or helplessly expressed or something - may be unbelievable some 3000 places in the book - very roughly one in every second verse on average (there are 6247 verses): Who is willing to believe that an omniscient and intelligent god is so helpless expressing himself in a book where he tells he uses a simple language and a language easy to understand, and so uneducated that he uses hundreds of mistaken facts, so that mere humans time and again and again and again have to step in and explain or "explain" what he "really means"? - not to mention explain or "explain" away mistakes? It takes a lot of naivety, brainwashing and plain old blindness and lack of moral courage not to at least ask questions. You believe just because your father and your grandmother told you so, and it is difficult to question your old beliefs and the basis of your "facts of life"?

To explain away one or a few mistakes is one thing. But to be able to believe in a teaching where hundreds and more mistakes has to be explained away, pooh-poohed, transformed to claimed allegories, etc., takes a naivety or blindness - or lack of moral stamina to meet facts one do not like - which would be far beyond the credible, if it was not a fact that Muslims prove it possible (Islam is the only of the major religions where the holy book proves that something is seriously wrong, and thus makes the Muslims the ones who really meet the wrongness of their fathers' beliefs in ways impossible to mistake - - - but clearly possible to flee from. Also see 3/35b jus below.

##198 3/35b: "Imran’s wife - - -". This is an example on "honest" Muslim technique of debate, taken - unbelievably - from Muhammad Yusuf Ali, the famous translator of the Quran, in his book: "The Meaning of the Quran": "By tradition Mary's mother was called Hannah (in Latin Anna, in English Anne), and her father was called Imran. Hannah is therefore both a descendant of the priestly house of Imran (the Arab name of Moses' father*) and the wife of Imran." One thing is that when using traditions and legends as basis, one cannot say that something "is", only that it "may be". But the real screamer is that the name of the father of Mary never in the traditions and legends was Imran. That name you only find in the Quran, and of course among the ones who take the name from the Quran - and this even more so as he mix in the Latin (and English) names. The name of Mary's father in the traditions was Jojakim or Jocim (except that Muslims have looked in the Quran and found the name Imran and made a new “tradition” from that). Further comments not necessary - just make your own conclusions about how reliable Muslims - even outstanding, learned ones like Mr. Ali - sometimes may be, and how reliable Muslim arguments and "facts" sometimes are. "Use al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie*), Kitman (the lawful half-truth*) and even deception and broken oaths to forward or defend the Religion of Truth". As you understand: When we base most of our writings on Islamic sources, we often run into the problem that everything has to be checked, because even claimed "facts" too often are incorrect.

199 3/35c: "Imran’s wife - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

200 3/35d: "O my (mother of Mary's*) Lord (claimed to be Allah*)! I do dedicate unto Thee what is in my womb for Thy special service - - - (etc*)". Not from the Bible. See 3/35-37 below.

201 3/35e: "O my (mother of Mary's*) Lord (claimed to be Allah*)! I do dedicate unto Thee what is in my womb for Thy special service - - - (etc*)". One more of the many texts in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the book eons ago unless predestination was and is 100% - like the Quran claims many places. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

202 3/35f: "- - - Thou (Allah*) hearest and knowest all things". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

203 3/35-37: The birth of Mary. This story is taken from the fanciful book "The Protoevangelion's James the Lesser", and contradicts the Bible quite a lot as it is not in the Bible.

But if Christians had falsified the Bible, their main object would have been to strengthen Jesus’ position and his connections to Yahweh - the Jewish and Christian god. There is no chance at all that they had omitted a miracle connected to his mother, telling about a direct connection between Yahweh and her. (That she served in the Temple, which also is told in the Quran, also is new to the Bible – and had for the same reason never been omitted there if it were true. Besides: Only men served in the Temple, a fact Muslim scholars know, but they never correct this point in the Quran).

It also tells something that when Muhammad differs from the Bible, his/the Quran’s stories mostly correspond to proved untrue religious fables and legends (often based on apocryphal scriptures – and often Gnostic). This tells it is not the Bible which is wrong, but that the Quran have used legends, fairy tales, etc. as sources. Would a god need fairy tales as sources?

204 3/36a: "O my (mother of Mary's*) Lord (claimed to be Allah*)! Behold! I am delivered of a female child! - - - And nowise is the male like the female. I have named her Mary, and I commend her and her offspring to Thy protection from Satan, the rejected". Not from the Bible - see 3/35-37 above.

205 3/36b: "O my (mother of Mary's*) Lord (claimed to be Allah*)! Behold! I am delivered of a female child! - - - And nowise is the male like the female. I have named her Mary, and I commend her and her offspring to Thy protection from Satan, the rejected". One more of the many texts in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the book eons ago unless predestination was and is 100% - like the Quran claims many places. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

206 3/36c: "And nowise is the male like the female - - -". Surely not in Islam./p>

207 3/37a: "He (Allah*) made her (Mary*) grow in purity and beauty - - -". There is nothing in the Bible about how Mary looked.

208 3/37b: "- - - to the care of Zakariyya was she (Mary*) assigned". This is not form the Bible. Actually Zakariyya (Zechariah in the Bible) is not mentioned in the Bible until in connection with the conception of his son, John - later called "the Baptist", (f.x. Luke 1/5-24) which took place some 15 months before the birth of Jesus. And the only connection he had to Mary according to the Bible, was that Mary visited his wife - her relative (Luke 1/36), Elisabeth, when being pregnant with Jesus, and "stayed with Elisabeth for three months and then returned home" (Luke 1/56).

209 3/37c: "- - - her (Mary*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

210 3/37d: "- - - to the care of Zakariyya was she (Mary*) assigned". One more of the many texts in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the book eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% - like the Quran claims many places. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

211 3/37e: "- - - Zakariyya - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

212 3/37f: “Every time he (Zakariyya*) entered (her) chamber to see her, he found her supplied with sustenance. He said: ‘O Mary! Whence (comes) this to you?’ She said: “From Allah: for Allah provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure’ “. This means that she by a miracle got her food from the god. This is a made up fairy tale. There is not one single chance that a miracle like this had been omitted from the NT - this even more so if Islam had been right in their statements that Christians (and Jews) had falsified the Bible and made Jesus "bigger" - though how do you make Jews falsify their copies of scriptures to make Jesus "bigger"? (Muhammad was not well versed in the Bible, and frequently made mistakes when he referred to it or (believed he) took stories from it. He always explained such mistakes with that he was right, and that the unholy Jews and Christians had falsified the Bible. Actually just this story is one the many the Quran has not “borrowed” from the Bible at all, but from one of the made up religious legends which flourished at that time. These mistakes was a reason why the Jews did not accept him when he came to Yathrib/Medina - the Jews said his teachings were wrong and that he consequently was a false prophet. (Muslims have "a tendency" not to mention this fact, but to instead tell a, to Muhammad, more flattering story: He was not accepted because the Jews were angry because Allah had called a non-Jew for a prophet.)

But if Christians had falsified the Bible, their main object would have been to strengthen Jesus’ position and his connections to Yahweh - the Jewish and Christian god. There is no chance at all that they had omitted a wonder connected to his mother, telling about a direct connection between Yahweh and her. (That she served in the Temple, which also is told in the Quran, also is new to the Bible – and had never been omitted there if it was true. Besides: It is untrue - only men served in the Temple.)

It also tells something that when Muhammad differs from the Bible, his/the Quran’s stories mostly correspond to proved untrue religious fables and legends (often based on apocryphal scriptures – and often Gnostic). This tells it is not the Bible which is wrong, but that the Quran have used legends and fairy tales as sources. Would a god need fairy tales as sources?

213 3/37g: "- - - her (Mary's*) chamber - - -". The Quran indicates that this took place in the Temple (in Jerusalem). But according to Mosaic (Jewish) law a female child could not be devoted to service in the Temple - only men served there. Muslim scholars know this, but never tell their audiences that the Quran here is wrong. Even A. Yusuf Ali knew it - he mentions it in comment 378 in his book "The Meaning of the Holy Quran". But even this according to Islam perhaps very best translator of the Quran, and a learned man, makes no remark about it in his edition/translation of "the Holy Quran". "It is better to believe than to face a destroying truth". We may add that the story of Mary serving in the Temple is taken from apocryphal - made up - sources, AND even Islam knows this (see comment 379 in Yusuf Ali: "The Meaning of the Holy Quran", but they keep quiet about it. We quote from YA379: "Some apocryphal Christian writings say that she was brought up in the Temple to the age of twelve like a dove, and fed by the angels". (It is symptomatic for some Islamic literature that he uses the story even if it is an apocryphal one, and even he - a top Muslim scholar - does not mention that "apocryphal" means "a made up story" even though most learned Muslims do not know this, and thus let the readers believe it is "bona fide" information - there were many such made up stories and legends, just like there were lots of made up Hadiths, and not a few of them are used by Muslims as it they were true stories. This fact tells not a little about Muslim disputants and about Islam, which does not discourage the use of untrue arguments. We at least have never seen any Islamic try to make an end to this kind of dishonesty. Also see 3/44a below.

214 3/37h: "O Mary! Whence (comes) this to you?" One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

215 3/37i: "She (Mary*) said - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

216 3/37j: "From Allah - - -". It is highly unlikely that anybody talked about Allah - or al-Lah as his name was before Muhammad changed it - in the temple of Jerusalem around the time of (just before) Jesus.

217 3/37k: "From Allah: for Allah provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

218 3/37l: "From Allah: for Allah provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure". Not from the Bible - there is nothing like this scene in the Bible.

219 3/37m: "From Allah: for Allah provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

220 3/38a: "- - - Zakariyya - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

221 3/38b: "O My (Zakariyya's*) Lord (Allah*)! Grant onto me from Thee a progeny that is pure: for Thou art He that heareth prayer!" Not from the Bible, though it is said there that he prayed for a child/son.

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.)

222 3/38c: "- - - Thou (Allah*) art He that heareth prayer!" Even if we omit the fact that a Jewish priest - Zechariah was a priest in the Temple in Jerusalem - hardly would pray to Allah, but to Yahweh, there remains one fact: Allah only could hear prayers if he existed and if he in addition was a god. There only are Muhammad's claims for this - and Muhammad is not the most reliable of witnesses.

223 3/39a: "While he Zakariyya*) was standing in prayer in the chamber - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

224 3/39b: "- - - Yahya - - -". The Arab name of John the Baptist.

225 3/39c: "- - - the truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

226 3/39d: "- - - the truth of a word from Allah - - -". The only words claimed to be from Allah is the Quran. But the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. is not from any god (it is slander and an insult and heresy to blame a god for a product of a quality like the Quran with all its mistakes, etc.) - and thus not from Allah even if he should happen to exist.

##227 3/39e: "- - - Yahya (John*) - - - a Prophet". John the Baptist is in the Bible hardly really classified among the prophets - - he is something special. But he had a prophet's qualifications as he obviously had connections to Yahweh and also made prophesies: He foretold Jesus. Interesting here is that he told that the one he foretold, already was living among the Jews (John 1/26) - this was before Jesus had started his mission - and that never mentioned a successor of Jesus.

228 3/39f: "- - - righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

229 3/40a: "He (Zakariyya*) said - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

230: 3/40b: "O my (Zakariyya's*) Lord (claimed to be Allah*)! How shall I have a son, seeing I am very old, and my wife is barren?" One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, in spite of Islam's claims. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

231 3/41a: "He (Zakariyya*) said - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

232 3/41b: "O my (Zakariyya's*) Lord (claimed to be Allah*)! Give me a Sign!". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, in spite of Islam's claims. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

233 3/41c: “- - - Thy Sign - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

234 3/41d: "- - - thou (Zechariah/Zakariyya*) shalt not speak for three days - - -." The Bible tells he was unable to speak until John was born (Luke 1/20) - or actually till the baby got his name (Luke 1/63-64). Contradiction.

235 3/42a “Behold the angels (plural*) said (when they came to tell Mary she was going to have the baby Jesus*)”. But:

12/109: “Nor did we send before thee (humanity, man, Muhammad*) (as Messengers) any but men.”

16/43: “And before thee (Muhammad*) also the Messengers we sent were but men - - -“.

21/7: “Before thee (Muhammad*), also, the messengers we sent were but men”.

25/20: “And the messengers whom We (Allah*) sent before thee were all (men) - - -.”

Well, 3/42 - 6/130 - 11/69 – 11/77 – 11/81– 19/17b – 19/19 – 22/75 all say that not all were men. Nice small contradictions to 12/109 – 16/43 – 21/7 – 25/20 which all says all messengers were men.

(8 contradictions - or really 32 as each contradicts each of the others).

236 3/42b: "O Mary! - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

237 3/42c: “Behold the angels (plural*) said (when they came to tell Mary she was going to have the baby Jesus*)”. According to the Bible there only was one angel - Gabriel (Luke 1/26).

238 3/43a: "O Mary! - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

239 3/43b: "O Mary! Worship thy Lord (here claimed to be Allah*) devoutly: prostrate thyself, and bow down (in prayer) with those who bow down". This is not from the Bible. As the Quran with all its errors is from no god, from where did Muhammad get this information?

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 ecxluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

240 3/43c: "- - - those who bow down". Muslims - Jews and Christians normally do not use prostration. So you understand that also Mary was a good Muslim.

241 3/44a: "This (Mary serving in the Temple under Zachariya and later her receiving the message about a child*)is part of the tidings of things unseen, which We (Allah*) reveal unto thee (Muhammad*) by inspiration - - -". Wrong. It is neither from inspiration, nor from the Bible, but from old apocryphal - made up - scriptures. It is even more wrong, as according to Mosaic - Jewish - law, only men could serve in the temple - a fact Muslim scholars know (f.x. A. Yusuf Ali: "The Meaning of the Holy Quran", comment 378: "The female child (Mary*) could not be devoted to Temple service under the Mosaic (Jewish*) law - - -" (the rest of the quote we omit - it is speculative and unscientific to say the least of it, like sometimes in Islamic literature)), but never mention to their congregations. Honesty. Also see 3/37a-b-c above.

242 3/44b: "- - - (O Messenger) - - -". See 63/5a below.

243 3/44c: "- - - by inspiration - - -". A most convenient way for a prophet to get his messages - especially if he does not want others to be able to check if he really got messages. We have found nowhere in the Bible where it is mentioned that the prophets got messages this way - even though Muhammad claims several places that they did (to make them like himself, and thus make his claimed inspiration "bona fide").

244 3/44d: "- - - cast lot with arrows - - -". Not from the Bible.

245 3/44e: "- - - charged with the care of Mary - - -". This is not from the Bible, and nothing similar is told there. There is no indication in the Bible for that she ever lived other places then in her home in Nazareth or that she ever was in the care of anyone but her parents before she got Jesus. From where did Muhammad get this information? Not from a god, as a book so full of mistakes, etc. like the Quran is from no god - and what sources do then remain? Also see 3/37b+f above.

246 3/44f: "- - - the charge of Mary - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

247 3/45a: "Behold, the angels said (to Mary*) - - -". See 3/42a above.

248 3/45b: “Behold the angels (plural*) said (when they came to tell Mary she was going to have the baby Jesus*)”. According to the Bible there only was one angel - Gabriel (Luke 1/26).

249 3/45c: "O Mary!" A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

250 3/45d: "- - - Allah - - -". This in this case so obviously contradicts the historical realities about religion among the Jews in Israel around the time of the birth of Jesus that we do not spend energy on commenting on it. It also contradicts the Bible of course.

*251 3/45e: “- - - his name will be Christ Jesus - - - “. His name was only Jesus. The word Christ was not even a name, but a title of honor, and it only emerged years after his death - originally in what is now Turkey (even though it is made from a Greek word). But Muhammad did not know the Bible well. (Christ or Christos in Greek means the same as Messiah in Hebrew – the anointed one (which indicates “king”, because new kings in the old Israel were anointed). Because of this some editions of the Bible use Christ instead of Messiah in NT, but the name - or title really - Christ in reality did not exist connected to Jesus, until well after his death. But the name Messiah was aired - partly as questions about if he was the announced Messiah). But the Gospels originally were written in Greek, and at a time when that title had emerged.

252 3/45f: "- - - his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary - - -". This is the full name the Quran uses for him - to underline their claim that he was not the son of Yahweh. And it is entirely wrong - he never was called "the son of Mary". When a parent's name was mentioned as part of his name (normal in those countries), he was "son of Joseph" - "ben Joseph" - the name of his (adopted?) father on Earth. And to be even more accurate: As Jesus is the Greek version of the Hebrew name Joshua, Jesus' name there and then would be "Joshua ben Joseph". Any - any - god had known this - Muhammad obviously not. Then who made the Quran?

##253 3/46a: "He (Jesus*) shall speak to the people in the childhood - - -". Not from the Bible except an episode in the Temple of Jerusalem when he was 12 according to the Bible - and not at all when he was a baby like the Quran claims.

##254 3/46b: "He (Jesus*) shall speak to the people in the childhood - - -". This refers to the Quran's claims that the baby Jesus from his crib spoke to the ones around him - something some Muslims try to explain away by calling it allegories, etc. (one of the standard last resorts for Muslims when things are difficult or impossible to explain). Islam is aware of that this is from apocryphal - made up - old scriptures (or tales?) cfr: Yusuf Ali: "The Meaning of the Holy Quran", comment 388: "Some apocryphal Gospels describe him as preaching from infancy". He is dishonest enough to mention the text - an argument - without mentioning the apocryphal means they are made up texts. It is just like if non-Muslims should use for arguments Hadiths the collectors did not use because they were well known to be made up ones, without telling that they were made up and without value. Persons used to honesty in argumentation, feel not a little distaste each time we meet things like this - and it happens a bit too often form Islam, even from well educated persons ( f.x. Yusuf Ali was far too well educated not to know that apocryphal stories are made up ones and totally without any relevance or value, but all the same he uses them - a completely clear half-truth, a Kitman (lawful half-truth)). But this kind of dishonesty - which actually is advised to use "if necessary" when forwarding or defending the religion - tells something negative about Islam. A religion which advices the use of lies - - - how much is then lies of what they tell and preach?

255 3/46c: "- - - righteous - - -". In just this case it may be true, as also other sources tell that Jesus were among the righteous, and this according to normal moral codes. But beware that usually when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. And also remember: Islam only has a moral code, not a moral philosophy - nothing counts except: "What did Muhammad say or do in a similar case?"'

256 3/47a: "She (Mary*) said - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

###257 3/47b: "How shall I (Mary*) have a son when no man hath touched me?" It may be worth noticing that the Quran here confirms the virgin birth of Jesus (the angel's answer in the next sentence had been different if this was not true). This because you meet Muslims throwing around ugly dirt about Yahweh and Roman soldiers, etc. and sex with an 8-9 year old girl from the Bible - Mary - refusing the virgin birth. Now, no-one knows the age of Mary, but it is likely that she was young. No-one guesses younger than 12 years, but looking to Muhammad's regular sex with Aishah from she was 9, Muslims sometimes claims Mary was 8-9 - the younger, the uglier - - - and an alibi for Muhammad's pedophilia. But the claimed virgin birth and thus no early sex, is confirmed at least 3 places in the Quran (19/20-21, 66/12 and here) - for what the reliability of the Quran is worth.

258 3/47c: "How shall I (Mary*) have a son when no man hath touched me?" One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, in spite of Islam's claims. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

259 3/47d: "- - - a Plan - - -". Allah predestines everything the Quran tells many places, and his predestinations are according to his Plan - a predestined plan no-one and nothing can change. (Why then f.x. pray to him, as nothing can change his decisions anyhow?).

260 3/47e: "He (Allah*) saith to it, "Be" and it is!" May be Yahweh just said "Be a son" and the fetus Jesus was. After all parthenogenesis - growing an offspring from just the female egg - happens frequently in nature in "lower" species, and are today possible to make even for somewhat higher beings by humans. To do the same in a human should not be too difficult for a god. The same for changing or exchanging the X-chromosome for a Y one to make a boy instead of a girl (normal parthenogenesis always gives female children) - it may be within what is possible for mere humans in some years or a few decades.

261 3/48: "And Allah will teach him (Jesus*) - - - the Gospel." For one thing: Muhammad does not seem to know there were 4 Gospels - he always uses singular (though also others sometimes use singular). For another: The Gospels did not exist at that time - the oldest one is from ca. 60 AD. For a third: Muhammad obviously did not know what the Gospels are about, as he tells Allah would teach Jesus the Gospels: The Gospels are the history of Jesus' life, death, resurrection, and ascension to Heaven, and could not be written until after all this had happened - not unless total predestination (and then out goes free will for man - such a combination is impossible even for a god, in spite of the Quran's and Islam's claims).

You meet the never documented claim that the Quran talks about an older Gospel - and in a way they may be right, as there may - may - have existed an older one. But for obvious reasons also this one cannot have been written until after things had happened - far too late for Jesus, not to mention the child Jesus, to read. Finally there of course are the naive ones who boldly claim that Allah knew everything before and could have it written down - but then as mentioned out of the window goes free will for man and the benevolent god - predestination and free will for man is not possible to combine. Either the god knows everything before - and man is a puppet forced not to make that knowledge wrong. Or man has free will - and the god is not fully clairvoyant because man always can change his mind once more - the "time travel paradox" which this is a variant of, is long since proved even theoretically unsolvable. There are among the immaterial natural laws a few not even gods can cross (f.x. the mathematical 1 + another mathematical 1 always = the mathematical 2 no matter what trick a god tries).

262 3/49a: “I (Jesus*) have come to you (humans*) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

263 3/49b: “I (Jesus*) have come to you (humans*), with a Sign form your Lord (the god - in the Quran claimed to be Allah*), in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and it becomes a bird by Allah’s leave”. (This tale is “borrowed” from one of the apocryphal (= made up religious fairy tales*) so-called “Child Gospels”, in this case the so-called Egyptian one, but also mentioned in the so-called Arab one from Syria around 500 AD, and in the Gnostic apocryphal (made up) Thomas’ Child Gospel - it is not from the Bible*),

Islam is aware of that this is from an apocryphal story - (f.x. Yusuf Ali: "The meaning of the Holy Quran", comment 390: "The miracle of the clay birds is found in some of the apocryphal Gospels".) - but never mention the fact that as the stories are apocryphal they are fakes, to their congregations, and seldom inform their readers that these are made up stories. A kind of dishonesty you meet too often in Islam. All are totally invalid as a proof for Allah, as long as:

It is not proved that Allah really did this - and stories from fairy tales need solid proofs. Or:

It is not proved that Allah and Yahweh really is the same god - which only Muslims claim to believe, and which they have never produced the slightest proof for - - - in addition to that the two gods (?) have so different teachings that it is impossible they can be the same one (Muslims explain this with that the Bible is falsified, but any professor in history would deem the Bible far more likely to be true - and for solid reasons - than the Quran (though even the Bible may have mistakes). Science also has proved that the Bible is not falsified - there as said may be mistakes, but no falsifications compared to the old texts. And Islam has proved it even more by not finding any proof for falsifications in 1400 years. If they had found one, they had SCREAMED about it - and there has been no such scream.

The Gnostic and other stories, tales and “gospels” were made up by semi-Christian or sometimes semi-Jewish sects to fit their special points of view on how a god should be. The sects were quite widespread once upon a time. Muslims frequently use these and other made up tales to try to “prove” their statements. Not to mention how often one meets Muslim references to the so called Gospel of Barnabas - - - perhaps made up at the Caliphs Muslim court in Baghdad (in the 1400 century?), or one of the several Muslim falsifications from older (ca. 800 - 900 AD) Muslim dominated Spain.

AND IT IS A STRANGE (?) FACT THAT THE QURAN OFTEN AGREES WITH MADE UP STORIES FROM APOCRYPHAL BOOKS AND STORIES AND TALES WELL KNOWN IN ARABIA AT THE TIME OF MUHAMMAD, INSTEAD OF THE MAY BE TRUE ONES IN THE BIBLE, AND NOT LESS PECULIAR THAT IT THEN EXPLAINS THAT THE REASON FOR THE DIVERGENCES, IS THAT THE BIBLE IS FALSIFIED. Muslims' use of apocryphal stories as arguments in reality proves they have few if any real arguments - if they had, there was no need for using made up ones.

(We may add that “Gospel” means “good news” or “glad news” or “glad tidings”. You meet the word used like that in some Bibles and other literature, but then it normally is written “gospel” not “Gospel”.)

One more point: A miracle like this never had been forgotten and left out from the NT if it had been real, especially as there are few stories from his childhood and this had filled in a blank space. Also see 3/46a above.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

####264 3/50a: (Jesus has come to Earth partly to confirm some Mosaic laws, but also:) "And to make lawful to you part of what was (before) forbidden to you - - -." This is a good verse to know, because as some of the Mosaic laws are closer to the Quran than NT and its New Covenant (f.x. Luke 22/20), you meet Muslims throwing at you that Jesus (only) came to confirm the old laws, and consequently you have to mean this and this, etc. Or he/she throws at you some old Mosaic law, and you are bad not living up to it. Here is confirmed even in the Quran that Jesus lifted old laws - actually many of them, and even more of the ones the Jews had added later.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

265 3/50b: "(I (Jesus*) - - -) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

266 3/50c: "- - - a Sign - - -". If the old books tell the truth, there are signs for Yahweh. But there are no signs clearly for Allah anywhere.

267 3/50d: (Jesus said:) "So fear Allah - - -". See 3/51 below.

###268 3/50e: (Jesus said:) "So fear Allah and obey me". This is one of Muhammad's slogans, and then of course it was good policy to claim older prophets had said the same. But what Jesus normally said, was "follow me", which is something very different - deep down so different that it is one of the proofs for that Allah - especially as you meet him in the surahs from Medina, and thus in the little abrogated parts of the Quran - is not the same god as Yahweh. Definitely not.

**269 3/51a: (Jesus said*): “It is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him”. Contradicted by the Bible, to say the least of it - in the Bible Jesus' connation was to Yahweh (but then the Quran wrongly mixes Yahweh and Allah, even though the fundamentals of the teachings are too different for such a claim to be true). 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.

**270 3/51b: (Jesus said*): “It is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him”. This must be written/told by someone with no knowledge of Israel at the time of Jesus. It was one of the periods when the Jewish religion was strong and the religious establishment powerful. Further the name of the (Muslim) god was not Allah until after Muhammad changed his name slightly - it was al-Lah (which means “the god” - not “god”, but “the god”. Muslim missionaries in the west today, often use the word God instead of Allah, because then a number of the differences between Yahweh (our god) and Allah are more difficult to see. They say that Allah means God, but strictly speaking “al-Lah” = “the god“). The Jews of that time were a traveling people, and they knew Arabia and the polytheistic religion there.

If Jesus had preached that people should pray to a known polytheistic god from another country (and remember that at that time gods in addition were at least to a degree thought to take care mostly of their own country or tribe or whatever) - call him al-Lah or the older El - he had got very few followers.

If Jesus had preached about al-Lah - a known polytheistic foreign god - the Jewish religious establishment had had him killed years before for heresy, disrespect for Yahweh and things like that.

This statement is made up by someone not knowing the religious and political situation in Israel around 30 AD (but the purpose for making it up is very obvious).

271 3/51c: "- - - a Way that is straight". This standard Quranic expression for the road to the god, hardly ever was used by Jesus - and there was no reason for falsification if he had used it. Jesus talked about "the wide road" leading to Hell, and "the narrow road" leading to Paradise.

272 3/52a: "- - - Jesus - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

273 3/52b: “(Jesus*) said: ‘Who will be the helpers to (the work) of Allah?” See 3/51a above.

274 3/52c: “(Jesus*) said: ‘Who will be the helpers to (the work) of Allah?” Not from the Bible.

275 3/52d: “Said the Disciples (of Jesus*): ‘We are Allah’s helpers: we believe in Allah, and do thou (Jesus*) bear witness that we are Muslims". Definitely not to be found in the Bible.

276 3/52e: “Said the Disciples (of Jesus*): ‘We are Allah’s helpers: we believe in Allah, and do thou (Jesus*) bear witness that we are Muslims". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, 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.

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 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 (or Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

277 3/52f: “Said the Disciples (of Jesus*): ‘We are Allah’s helpers:'” See 3/51a above.

278 3/52g: "Said the disciples: '- - - we believe in Allah, - - -'”. See 3/51a above.

*279 3/52h: Said the disciples: “- - - and thou (Jesus*) bear witness that we are Muslims”. See 3/51a above. Besides the word hardly had a meaning 600 years before Muhammad.

280 3/53a: "Our Lord (Allah*), we (Muslims*) believe in what Thou hast revealed (the Quran*) - - -". No god of any kind has revealed a book with so much errors, etc. like the Quran.

281 3/53b: "- - - we (Muslims*) follow the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". One of Muhammad’s less used slogans or mantras for gluing himself to his god and his platform of power.

282 3/53c: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

283 3/54a: "- - - unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative - for Muslims - names for non-Muslims.

#284 3/54ab: ”- - - and Allah too plotted and planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” It in reality is Allah that decides everything – “the best of planners”.

####285 3/54b: ”- - - and Allah too plotted and planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” This verse in addition is one of the verses the Muslim phenomena al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth) are based on – when Allah can “plot and plan” (indicating using dishonest means) of course his followers can do the same as long as it is not forbidden – which it is not. Also see 2/26h, 2/224e-f, 2/225a, 4/142a, 8/30, 10/21b, 13/42, 27/50, and 86/16 - dishonesty as a policy is one of the fundamental rules in the Quran's moral - or immoral - code. Al-Taqiyya and Kitman are permitted in 8 - 10 wide cases, and advised "if necessary" in 2: To defend and to promote Islam. Worth remembering for Muslims and non-Muslims alike; what is true and what is not true in Muslims' arguments about such things? And how much is true in a religion partly relying on dishonesty? - - - and what then about its claimed prophet, Muhammad? - how much of his words are Kitmans or al-Taqiyyas or deceit, etc.?

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. Also for deceit there are given no real limits. Muhammad said according to f.x. ibn Ishaq, "The life of Muhammad", that "war is deceit" - and according to many Muslims "anything" is war (according to Islam also everything outside Islamic lands are "area of war"):

To save your or others' health or life.

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

To make peace in a family.

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

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

To deceive opponents/enemies.

To betray enemies.

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

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

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

But al-Taqiyya, etc. is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve.

But in the long run the surroundings learn that it is impossible quite to trust a Muslim in serious questions: When is he speaking the honest truth and when is he using an al-Taqiyya or some other kind of "lawful" dishonesty? - lawful at least according to the Quran and to the Sharia laws.

286 3/55a: "- - - Allah said: "O Jesus! - - - I will make those who follow thee superior to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: then shall ye all return to me - - -:" There also is hope for Christians - - - if not this is one of the many verses in the Quran which are abrogated - made invalid - by later and harsher verses. Much of the mild parts of the Quran are abrogated.

287 3/55b: "- - - Allah said: '- - - then (at the Day of Doom*) shall ye (people*) all return unto me - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere - and a claim made on behalf of many gods in many religions. If the old books are reliable, Yahweh with his resurrections may have proved something, but Allah and Muhammad nothing - only words.

288 3/55c: "- - - Jesus - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

289 3/55d: "- - - then shall ye (followers of Jesus*) all return unto me (Allah*) - - -". According to the Bible they will return unto Yahweh, not unto Allah - 2 very different gods in spite of the Quran's claims (especially like you meet Yahweh in NT.

290 3/55e: "- - - I (Allah*) will judge - - -". Only if he exists, and only if he in addition is a major god.

291 3/56a: "- - - those who reject faith - - -". = Non-Muslims. One of Muhammad's many negative - for Muslims - names for them.

292 3/56b: "- - - faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

293 3/56c: "- - - I (Allah*) will punish them (non-Muslims*) with terrible agony - - -". See 3/77b below.

294 3/56d: "- - - nor will they (non-Muslims*) have anyone (but Allah*) to help". Wrong if they are Jews or Christians and if the Bible is reliable.

295 3/57a: "- - - those who believe and work righteousness - - -". Muslims.

296 3/57b: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

297 3/57c: "- - - Allah will pay them (in full) their reward (in the claimed next life*) - - -". If Allah exists. If he is a god. If he is behind what the Quran tells. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth only.

298 3/57d: "- - - Allah loveth not those who do wrong." As Islam claims Allah loves the Muslims, this means that to steal, rob, extort, rape, enslave, murder, lie, break oats, cheat, etc., etc. in the name of the god is not to do wrong as long as there is the slightest pretext for calling it Jihad - "self defense in the widest (NB!!*) meaning of the word". And everything is called Jihad. A somewhat special moral code. (And honestly: To permitted to or obliged to do things like this in the name of one's god, gives that god and that religion an ugly taste - morally it is worse than when made from "normal" motifs).

299 3/57e: "- - - those who do wrong - - -". Normally one of Muhammad's many negative - and distaste inducing - names for non-Muslims.

300 3/57f: "- - - do wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

301 3/58a: "- - - unto thee (Jesus*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

302 3/58b: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

303 3/58c: "- - - the Message (the Quran*) - - -". Is the Quran really a message? - and in case from whom or what, as with all those mistakes, etc. it is not from any god?

304 3/58d: "- - - the Message (the Quran*) - - -". It is unlikely in the extreme that Jesus was rehearsed in the Quran. Islam will have to bring very strong proofs to be believed.

305 3/58e: "- - - the Message of Wisdom (the Quran*)". Wrong. There are so many mistakes and worse - even a few lies - in the Quran that you at best have to run slalom to find some wisdom in between.

306 3/59a: “The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam - - -”. That is to say in “Quran-speak”: "He was a prophet, but but for that an ordinary human". Well, Jesus called God/Yahweh “father”, which Adam could not - not in the same way at least. Also Adam is no prophet in the Bible, only in the Quran (A real prophet hardly had acted like Adam). And according to science, Adam never existed - man developed from earlier primates.

*307 3/59b: “He (Allah*) created him (Adam (and Jesus)*) from dust, - - -”. The Quran tells about many ways man was created - 13 different if you are strict, 5 - 7 if you are less strict. Only 1 can be true, as man (Adam) was created only once. Actually according to science all of them are wrong, as man developed from earlier primates.

Some Muslims take pride in that archaeologists has found that the human race has passed through so-called bottlenecks, and that all now may have one “mother” in common - the archaeological Eve - and one common “father” - the less known archaeological Adam. "Hurray! Here is the PROOF!", you may hear - "here is Eve and Adam!". What not a single of them has ever mentioned as far as we have heard, is the fact that this “Eve” lived some 160ooo to 200ooo (195ooo?) years ago, whereas the corresponding “Adam” lived much later - may be as late as 60ooo - 70ooo (64ooo?) years ago, Eve in Africa, Adam most likely in Asia (perhaps near the Caspian Sea). Not a couple exactly! (And once more; actually the Adam from the Bible and the Quran most likely never existed - man developed from a primate, he was not created into sudden existence). See also 6/2b below.

308 3/59c: (Allah said:) "'Be' and he (Adam/Jesus*) was". This is in strict contradiction to the verse claiming the god could not have a son, because he had no woman.

309 3/59d: Grammatical error: Kun feekunu should be Kun fekaana.

310 3/60a: “The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; - - -”. With so many mistaken facts that you find in that book, it can at most be partly true, if this refers to the presumed truths in the Quran. Also see 2/2b above and 13/1g and 40/75 below.

311 3/60b: “The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; - - -”. Contradicted by the Bible - see 2/42c above. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

312 3/60c: “The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; - - -”. The claimed Truth - the Quran - does not come from any god at all - too many mistakes, etc. See 13/1g and 40/75 below.

313 3/60d: "- - - those who doubt (Muhammad and Islam*)". One of Muhammad’s many for Muslims negative names for non-Muslims - this is a soft such one.

314 3/61a: “- - - now after (full) knowledge hath come to thee - - -”. Beware that here simply is meant knowledge about the Quran and Islam. When the Quran uses the word "knowledge" it normally only talks about this kind of knowledge.

315 3/61b: “- - - now after (full) knowledge hath come to thee - - -”. With so many mistakes in the Quran, it is at best partly knowledge.

316 3/61c: "- - - knowledge - - -" See 26/83a below.

317 3/61d: "- - - invoke the curse of Allah - - -". This only has a meaning if Allah exists and in addition is a major god. We may point to that especially if Muhammad knew the Quran was made up, this was a nice small trap to use. But beware that one cannot say for sure that Muhammad did not believe in at least parts of what he told. Even if involvement of a god is out of the question with so much wrong in the Quran, an illness like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) may have cheated him. The same may some dark forces have done - if they exist. Muhammad f.x. would have no chance to see through it if the Devil dressed up like Gabriel, and pretended to give Muhammad verses from Allah.

318 3/62a: "This (the Quran*) is the true account - - -". With that many mistakes, etc., the Quran at best is partly the truth. Also see 2/2b above and 13/1g and 40/75 below.

319 3/62b: "This (the Quran*) is the true account - - -". Contradicted by the Bible. 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.

320 3/62c: "- - - there is no god except Allah - - -". See 2/255a above and 6/106b and 25/18a below - and for that case 2/165c above.

321 3/62d: "(Allah is*) - - - the Exalted in Power - - -". He in case never clearly proved it.

322 3/62e: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

323 3/62f: "(Allah is*) - - - the Wise". Not if he made the Quran.

324 3/63a: "- - - Allah hath full knowledge of those who do mischief". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

325 3/63b: "- - - Allah hath full knowledge of those who do mischief". Does this mean Muslims in reality? - there is no doubt that many members of the war religion Islam with its "peculiar" moral code according to all normal moral rules, do a lot of mischief. (Compare the Quran's moral code, war code, etc. with "Do against others like you want others do against you", and feel sick.)

326 3/63c: "- - - those who do mischief - - -". Normally this is a name Muhammad used for persons opposing him and his new religion - with other words non-Muslims who worked against him or the religion. But it sometimes also was used for other "bad" elements.

327 3/63d: "- - - mischief". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

328 3/64a: "- - - People of the Book (in this case the Bible*)!" = Jews, Christians and Sabeans (though the last ones are seldom mentioned in the Quran - see 2/62f above). Muslims like to claim the Sabeans were member of an Arab monotheistic sect or a similar one in Persia - the latter one exists even today (with some 2ooo members). The most likely ones, however, were the people in the then mainly Christian Saba/Sabah/Sheba in what is today Yemen. For some reason or other Muslims seldom mention this possibility.

329 3/64b: "O People of the Book (here the Bible*)! Come to common terms as between us (Muslims*) and you - - -". Muhammad dearly wanted to get the Jews and the few Christians in and around Medina into his religion.

330 3/64c: "- - - People of the Book (this expression normally - like here - refers to the Bible - also see 3/64a above*)!". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

331 3/64d: “- - - that we (Muslims and Jews/Christians*) worship none but Allah (= Yahweh and Allah is claimed to be the same god*)”. This is not possible as the fundamental differences between the Quran and the Bible/NT are too big and too many – not unless the god is schizophrenic. Mainly only Muslims say this – and they will have to bring strong proofs.

Which raises the question: Are Muhammad and his Arabs really descendants from Abraham (and thus | earlier of the same religion)? At least they in case only are quarter breeds, as Ishmael’s mother, Hagar, was a slave from Egypt (1. Mos. 16/1), and also his wife (only one is mentioned) was from Egypt (also according to the Bible, written and unabridged since more than 1000 years before Muhammad – 1. Mos.21/20). Well, worse than that: Modern DNA analysis has shown that the pure Arab does not exist. Arabia is on a crossroad – caravans and merchants have passed through - - - and left babies behind now and then (remember that before Muhammad in Arabia sex and alcohol were “the two delightful things”). And Arab caravans and traders roamed wide – and now and then brought back brides from abroad. And finally the perhaps main reason for the diluted blood: The slaves. Literally millions of slaves – some 2/3 of them women – have through the times been brought to Arabia, both before and after Muhammad. And the women of the harems – do you think they were permitted to demand condoms? It is impossible to say there are not traces of DNA from Abraham in Arabs – perhaps via Jewish slave women? But any scientist will say that the chances for finding much more DNA from Abraham (if he ever existed) in Jews than in Arabs are big, because the Jews mostly have been intermarrying because of the excluding religion. Arabs? Diluted blood and hardly any traces of Abraham - none if the Bible tells the truth when it tells that Ishmael settled near the border of Egypt (1. Mos. 25/18 - and there was no reason for him who wrote 1. Mos. not to tell the truth).

332 3/64e: "- - - we (here Muslims, Jews and Christians*) associate no partners with Him (Allah*) - - -". One thing is that Jews and Christians did and do not believe in Allah, but in Yahweh. But the main point just here is Muhammad's tries to tell his followers and others that other gods were gods the non-Muslims had in addition to Allah. This is a kind of Arabism, as this claim after a fashion could be used in Arabia, as Muhammad just had taken over the old Arab main god al-Lah and renamed him Allah. Thus the old Arabs had other gods in addition to al-Lah - but only after a fashion, as they prayed to the old pagan version of this god, whereas Muhammad talked about a refashioned one. All other religions had god/gods INSTEAD of Allah, not beside him. There is a huge difference between "instead of" and "beside" in this case, but Muhammad tries this trick again and again - if he could make his followers and others believe it was a general rule and not just something Arab that other gods just were in addition to Allah, it would make Allah big.

333 3/64f: "- - - we (Muslims*) erect not, from among ourselves, lords and patrons - - -". In a way this is correct, at least for Sunni Muslims. Officially they have no clerical hierarchy with high leaders. But all the same there is a hidden hierarchy: The scholars of the religion. This at least partly makes up for the missing clerical hierarchy. Besides there is the politics - Islam demands to dominate politics, and in politics there are leaders on many levels. (Also Sunni Muslims officially have no saints - though in reality Muhammad is one - whereas Shi’a Muslims have.)

334 3/65a: "- - - People of the Book (in this case the Bible*)!" = Jews, Christians and Sabeans (though the last ones are seldom mentioned in the Quran). Also see 3/64a above.

335 3/65b: "- - - People of the Book (this expression normally - like here - refers to the Bible - also see 3/64a above*)!". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

336 3/65c: "Why dispute ye (Jews and Christians*) about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel were not revealed till after him?" Well, according to the Quran Abraham had a book, and that must have been the Quran, as the Quran according to Islam (and the Quran) is a copy of the eternal "mother book" in Heaven and copies of that book were given to the old prophets according to the Quran. And then Abraham's copy - and Jesus' copy - must have been identical or at least nearly identical to the present Quran. All this according to Islam. As also Jesus "original" teaching was Islam, according to both the Quran, to Muhammad, and to Islam, the Gospels must have been pieces from Jesus' copy of the Quran, which later was falsified, still according to Islam - even though falsification of the Bible is proved wrong by both science and Islam, as none of them has been able to prove even one falsification from the tens of thousands of relevant old manuscripts. Believe it who wants - but you have to want to believe it to be able to do so.

337 3/65d: "Why dispute ye (Jews and Christians*) about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel were not revealed till after him?" There is no reason why one cannot dispute about Abraham even if He lived - if he was a real person - some 1800 - 2ooo years before Chris and "the Law" arrived around 1230 - 1235 BC, and the first known Gospel around 60 AD. One f.x. can dispute about the Quran's use (or disuse?) of him, the big differences between what is told about him in the Bible and in the Quran, and not least: As the Bible is the only known source about Abraham, and as the Quran with all its mistakes is not from a god, so the information about Abraham cannot have come from a god - where did Muhammad get his information(?) about Abraham from? There in reality are just three remaining possible such sources: Dark forces - and then it may easily be wrong. Legends and fairy tales - and then it may even more easily be wrong. And fantasy - in which case it is nearly sure to be wrong.

338 3/65e: "- - - Abraham - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

339 3/65f: "- - - the Gospel - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

340 3/65g: "Have ye (people, non-Muslims*) no understanding?". See 3/65c just above. May be understanding was just what they had.

341 3/66a: "Ye (Jews and Christians*) are those who fell to disputing (even) in matters of which ye had some knowledge!" Muhammad here refers to the fact that there were different ways of understanding words and verses in the Bible, which caused debates among Jews and among Christians. When they were able to dispute even things Muhammad claimed should be clear to them, he claims that means they are not qualified to debate things they know nothing about.

In clear language his claim is that as Abraham (previous verse) lived such a long time ago, the Jews (and Christians) in reality had no correct information about Abraham, and thus that what he himself told about Abraham, were the correct stories, as he - he claimed - got those stories from Allah.

But as it is clear to anything but strong wishful thinking backed by naivety, that no god ever was involved in the making of the Quran, there emerge two questions: From where did Muhammad get his stories? And may be the Bible all the same is more reliable than those stories if they have no good, reliable source? (This even more so at it is clear that the source for many of Muhammad's stories are legends, apocryphal - made up - stories, and even fairy tales (f.x. Luqman - surah 31 - is a person from Arab fairy tales).

342 3/66b: "- - - knowledge - - -". In this case knowledge about Abraham. Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally refers only to religious knowledge - and normally only to knowledge about Islam/the Quran - and not to other kinds of knowledge. Muslim area had an enlightened period where real knowledge flowered from around 820 AD to around 1100 AD, but it was in spite of Islam, not because of Islam. All knowledge not relevant for Islam became "foreign knowledge" and was actively opposed and even persecuted by words and prison and even executions of "the sinners". The result was that science in the central and eastern Muslim area "died" around 1100 AD (the final end was made by the book "The Incoherence of the Philosophers" in 1095 AD written by "the greatest Muslim after Muhammad" according to Muslims, al-Ghazali. In the far west it lingered on for around 100 more years - the year 1198 and the death of the last great philosopher in Muslim dominated Spain is often mentioned here). Also see 26/83a below.

343 3/66c: "It is Allah who knows, and ye who know not." Wrong if the Quran is a sample of Allah's knowledge.

344 3/67a: “Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian - - -“. He definitely was no Christian, as he lived – if he ever lived - some 1800 – 2000 years too early. But it may be correct to call the forefather of all Jews a Jew. (We know the word did not exist at that time, but it is normal to use the word also for the people who later got the name Jews. The word "Jew" is made from "Judah" - the name of one of the sons (no. 4 according to the Bible - 1. Mos. 29/35) of the Jewish patriarch Jacob - grandson of Abraham. His tribe much later settled south of and round Jerusalem, and when the nation was split after the death of Solomon, they became the main tribe in the country of Judah - hence Judes or Jews - whereas the parts further north became the country of Israel, which originally was a name the patriarch Jacob got from Yahweh, according to the Bible (1. Mos. 32/28).)

345 3/67b: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran. Which here indicates that Abraham was a good and true Muslim - which contradicts the Bible not a little, because there he was a follower of Yahweh. (Islam likes to claim Yahweh just was another name for the same god, but their teachings were too different for that, unless if the god was mentally very ill - schizophrenic.

346 3/67c: “Abraham - - - bowed his will to Allah’s (which is Islam) - - -.” Abraham here is claimed to be a good Muslim - hardly so in the main source about Abraham, the Bible (and remember; both science and Islam have proved that the Bible is not falsified, in spite of Islam's never documented claims). Clear contradiction to the Bible. (There are MANY contradictions to the Bible in the Quran - we only mention some of them).

347 3/67d: "- - - he (Abraham*) joined no gods with Allah". Well, according to the Bible Abraham's god was not Allah but Yahweh.

348 3/68a: “Without doubt - - -". See 2/2b above.

349 3/68b: “Without doubt, among men, the nearest of kin to Abraham, are those who follow him - - -“.

You do not get related to a man just because you are a follower.

Is Islam really following Abraham’s real religion? – only the Quran says so, and the Quran has proved that it has lots of mistakes – lots of.

Worse: The Quran has proved exactly nothing of its central parts and claims.

There are lots of discrepancies between the Bible and the Quran concerning Abraham. Science reckons the Bible to be considerably more reliable than the Quran - which is not reckoned to be reliable for anything at all older than Muhammad (you f.x. never see a serious scientist using the Quran as a source for historical facts from before Muhammad),

If Muhammad included himself here: Was he really a descendant of Abraham? – Abraham lived some 2500 years earlier, and how many even today know their forefathers 2500 years back? – people have lied for political or personal reasons throughout both history and pre-history, also about honorable ancestors. Also remember here that according to the Bible - the only "real" source - Ishmael settled in Sinai near the border of Egypt (1. Mos. 25/18), not in Arabia.

Even if Muhammad had been a descendant of Abraham – then how close after 2500 years? His first forefather in case was Ishmael. Ishmael was half Egyptian (his mother Hagar was a slave maiden from Egypt (1.Mos. 16/1), and Ishmael himself married a woman (only one wife is mentioned) from Egypt (1. Mos. 21/21) and his family settled near the border of Egypt (1. Mos. 25/18) in Sinai. The border of Egypt of that time never was in the middle of Arabia, even though Muslims want Hagar and Ishmael to have settled in Mecca). In addition modern DNA has shown that Arabs far from is a pure race. Arabs originally were a mixture of groups and persons which drifted into the then empty area something like 6ooo years ago (a bit earlier some places along the coasts), and thus was no pure race even from the beginning. Later they were drifting nomads and traders – and brought home wives and slaves and got children with them. Also foreign traders crossed Arabia and made a child now and then – the sexual taboos were far looser before Muhammad. And then there were all the slave women who produced dilution of the blood also in Islamic times. The Arabs simply is a mix of different local and a lot of not local DNA – in addition to the already mentioned fact that already after 2 generations only ¼ of the relationship was with Abraham (if at all) - - - and the 25oo years up to Muhammad meant some 80 - 100 generations diluting of the claimed, but unlikely relationship.

There thus is much reason for doubt.

350 3/68c: "- - - those who follow him (Abraham*) - - -". Here the intended claim is that Muslims are followers of Abraham. This in spite of that not even Islam has found even one reliable trace of Islam older than 610 AD (when Muhammad started his religious work). Abraham, if he ever lived he lived some 2500 years before that.

351 3/68d: "- - - this Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

352 3/68e: "- - - this Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

353 3/68f: "- - - Allah is the Protector of those who have faith". If Allah exists. If he is a god. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth about this.

354 3/68g: "- - - those who have faith". Muslims.

355 3/68h: "- - - faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran.

356 3/69a: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans - there is a little dispute about who the last ones were, but most likely the mainly Christians of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (now approximately Yemen). See 2/62f above.

357 3/69b: "- - - lead you (Muslims*) astray". But as the Quran is not from a god - too much is wrong in it - are you really led astray if you leave it? The worst which can happen is that you leave one dead end road for another. And with some luck you may find a real god (as the Quran is not real, most likely the god also is not real - this even more so as we know Allah originally was a pagan god - al-Lah - Muhammad just took over) - if such one exists.

358 3/69c: "But they (Jews, Christians, and Sabeans*) shall lead astray (not you (Muslims*) but themselves - - -". This is correct only if Islam is a true religion and if in addition the Bible is wrong.

359 3/69d: "- - - and they (the people believing in the Bible*) do not perceive!" But that was just what they did - saw that what Muhammad told about the Bible and about Yahweh was far from what the Bible really said.

360 3/70a: "Ye People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans - there is a little dispute about who the last ones were, but most likely the mainly Christians of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (now approximately Yemen) - see 2/62f above.

361 3/70b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

362 3/70c: "- - - Signs of Allah - - -". There is not one sign in all the Quran - or outside the Quran - clearly from Allah. Without exception they all can as easily be claimed by other religions and other gods. Never proved claims and never proved words are that cheap.

363 3/70d: “Why do ye (the Jews*) reject the Signs of Allah, of which ye are (yourselves) witnesses?” They rejected the “Signs” – the teaching of Muhammad (the Quran as a book did not exist yet). The word “Sign” here may refer to two statements:

Islam say Muhammad is foretold in the Bible, and especially refers to 5 Mos. 18/15 and 18/18. But the brother of a Jew is a Jew, not an Arab, and the Jews’ fellow countrymen also are Jews, not Arabs. Islam also never mention the next few verses – f.x. number 18/21 about real and false prophets, and where Muhammad do not even qualify as a real prophet. See the chapter about “Muhammad in the Bible?” in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran". Wrong.

The other claim here is that when Jesus talked to his disciples about a helper that should come to them, Muslims claim that this meant Muhammad, even though they have to twist their “explanation” not a little (they need at least one “foretelling” from GT and one from NT, because it is said that Muhammad is foretold in both) - and even though Muhammad was born 500 years after the disciples were dead he should be the helper of the disciples of Jesus according to Islam! (Jesus was talking about The Holy Spirit which came to the disciples some days later at Pentecost (Acts 2/2-4)).

The Quran refers to one or two learned Jews whom Islam claims accepted Mohammad as a prophet. (This may or may not be true). But it is in no way correct to say that “ye” (all or most of the Jews) did so. On the contrary – may be a thousand Jews were killed and murdered and many more made slaves or had to flee the area, because they refused to accept Islam as their religion. Wrong - there is a huge difference between one/a few and most/all.

See 7/157d+e below.

Islam only has produced claims and twisted logic for this – well, claim. They will have to produce documentation or proofs if they want to be believed by others than the brainwashed and the naïve. Similar claims in 2/42 – 2/101 – 2/146.

What was wrong with them, Muhammad told, was that they had distorted or thrown away parts of the OT (he claimed), so that it did not tell the same story as the Quran – which it, he claimed, surely had done when it was sent down from Allah (As mentioned no part of the Bible is “sent down”, except the 10 Commandments. It is all written by humans – may be inspired by god, but written by humans. What comes closest to having been “sent down” except for the 10 Commandments are the laws of Moses, which the Bible tells Yahweh told to Moses, and Moses wrote them down later.) See 2/75b, 2/76b and 2/77a above, and especially 7/157d+e below.

Worse: Not even Islam has ever found a proof for that the Bible is falsified - not even a single point of falsification they have found in it (guess if they had referred to it if they had found anything!). Mistakes, yes, but no falsifications. The same goes for science: No falsification found.

364 3/71a: "Ye People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans - there is a little dispute about who the last ones were, but most likely the mainly Christians of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (now approximately Yemen) - see 2/62f above.

365 3/71b: "Ye People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

366 3/71c: “Why do you /Jews*) clothe the truth with falsehood (= falsify the Bible, the Torah, and the other Jewish scriptures - this is strongly stated in the Quran, as if it is not true then the Quran is a falsified book*), - - -?” Always when there was a discrepancy between the Quran and the Bible, Muhammad said it was he who was right and the Jews and the Christians who had falsified the Bible (even in cases where it is clear the story in the Quran corresponds to a made up legend known in Arabia at that time) - a most convenient explanation for a man who knew little about the Bible, and the only way out he had. But does the Quran represent the truth? - with that many obvious mistakes, etc., it at most can be partly true. Also see 3/24d and 3/70d above.

367 3/71d: “- - - conceal the Truth (what the Quran tells*) - - -”. See 3/71c just above.

368 3/71e: “- - - conceal the Truth (what the Quran tells*) - - -”. With so many mistakes, the Quran at best is only partly true. Also see “Muhammad in the Bible?” - 7/157e - and 3/71b above.

369 3/71f: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b above and 13/1g and 40/75 below.

370 3/71g: "- - - the Truth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible - see 2/42c above. 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.

371 3/71h: "- - - while ye (the Jews in and around Medina*) have knowledge?" Words like "knowledge" Muhammad mainly used for knowledge about Islam and the contents of the Quran. In a way that is the meaning here, too: He is accusing the Jews for knowing that their scriptures were falsified, and that originally they were like his teachings - a claim which modern science - and even more strongly Islam - has proved wrong, as not one single falsification has been found among the perhaps 44ooo relevant manuscripts older than 610 AD (when Muhammad started his procelyting).This is one of the cases where an intelligent man like Muhammad knew, or at least suspected, he was not telling the truth, but it was the only way to save his new religion - - - and his own position as a supreme leader.

#372 3/71i: "- - - while ye (the Jews in and around Medina*) have knowledge?" Just here Muhammad most likely refers to his claims that the Jews had falsified the Bible and that they knew that it was falsified. (Quite a claim by the way: He claimed that they believed in something they knew was a falsification!! - a psychological impossibility.)

Alternatively Muhammad here claims the Jews (and the Christians) knew he was mentioned in the Bible - a claim Muhammad did not repeat too often, perhaps because he suspected or knew it was not true.

373 3/72a: "A section of the People of the Book say: 'Believe - - - (etc.*)". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - 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 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 (Allah) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. See 2/51b and 3/24a above.

374 3/72b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans - there is a little dispute about who the last ones were, but most likely the mainly Christians of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (now approximately Yemen) - see 2/62f above.

375 3/72c: "- - - what (the Quran*) is revealed - - -". Was the Quran really revealed? And in case by whom?. As all the mistakes etc. prove that no god was involved, there remain 3 alternatives: Dark forces - Muhammad had no chance to detect the deception if f.x. the Devil dressed up like Gabriel and pretended giving him verses from Allah - the partly immoral moral code and partly unjust sharia laws may point to this explanation. Or a mental illness like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like modern medical science suspects - which also may have made Muhammad honestly believe in parts of what he told. Or by a cold human brain - perhaps Muhammad’s own - the mistakes which were correct science or knowledge at the time of Muhammad, may point to this explanation.

376 3/72d: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims - only Muslims are believers according to the Quran.

377 3/73a (Non-Muslims say:) "And believe no one unless he (as normal in the Quran only "he" - only men counted*) follows your religion (their religion)". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

378 3/73b: "True - - -". See 2/2b above.

379 3/73c: "True guidance (the Quran*) - - -". There is no true guidance in a book full of mistakes. Also see 2/2b above and 16/107 below.

380 3/73d: "- - - the Guidance (the Quran*) of Allah - - -". No god has had anything to do with the Quran - too much is wrong in it, so much that it is heresy, slander and an insult to blame it on a god, not to mention an omniscient god. Also see 2/2b above.

381 3/73e: "- - - revelation - - -". If there were revelations, they were from no god - too many errors, contradictions, etc. One may speculate if they were made up, were from dark forces, or from a mental illness - f.x. TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like science tends to believe, or by a cold, scheming brain, f.x. Muhammad's - but it only will be speculations. The only thing which is sure is that no god makes a book of that quality.

382 3/73f: "- - - a revelation - - - like unto that (the Quran*) which was sent unto you (Muhammad*)?" If the Quran is a revelation, it is not from any god - no god makes such a number of errors, etc., like one finds in the Quran. Also see 3/73e just above.

383 3/73g: "All bounties are in the hand of Allah. He granteth them to whom He pleaseth - - -". Allah in his unfathomable wisdom decides who is to have a good life and who not. Well, it is an "explanation" for what seems unfair in this world.

384 3/73h: "- - - He (Allah*) knoweth all things". See 2/233h above.

385 3/73i: Un-Arabic word: rabbinic - from rbn, Syriac = “preceptor, doctor.” (also 5/48, 5/68).

386 3/74a: "For His (Allah's*) Mercy (here = prophethood*) He specially choseth whom He pleaseth - - -". Muhammad claimed that he was not rejected by the Jews because his teaching was wrong, but because he was not a Jew. This verse is a defense against the bad Jews disliking that he was not Jewish - it was for Allah to decide whom to choose for a messenger. (Muhammad's claim was wrong - and it is likely Muhammad knew it, but needed the "explanation" - as the real reason was that there are miles between Islam and the Mosaic - Jewish - religion.

387 3/74b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above (though just here it refers to Muhammad’s claimed prophethood).

388 3/74c: "- - - Allah is the Lord of bounties unbounded". Often claimed, never proved.

389 3/75a: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans - there is a little dispute about who the last ones were, but most likely the mainly Christians of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (now approximately Yemen) - see 2/62f above..

390 3/75b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

391 3/75c: “- - - they (Jews and Christians*) say, 'there is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans)'". Here it is needed proofs if Islam really claims the Jews (there were few Christians) were worse than average - f.x. Arabs do not have the best of reputations for reliability.

392 3/75d: “- - - they (Jews and Christians*) say, 'there is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans)'". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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 man has free will - even partly only - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, in spite of Islam's claims, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more.

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.

393 3/75e: “But they (Jews and Christians*) tell a lie against Allah (= they have falsified the Bible*) - - -”. It is difficult to tell something is a lie, as long as nobody knows what the truth about Allah is - or if he even exists. There are so many mistakes, etc. in the Quran, that the book is totally unreliable as a proof, and the Quran is the only "real" source for the claims about Allah and about his possible existence. More to the point: Both science and Islam has proved very strongly that the Bible is not falsified. Neither of them has been able to document even one single falsification - mistakes yes, falsifications no.

394 3/75f: “But they (Jews and Christians*) tell a lie against Allah (= they have falsified the Bible*), and well they know it.” Wrong. See 2/75b and 2/130a above.

###395 3/75g: “But they (Jews and Christians*) tell a lie against Allah (= they have falsified the Bible*), and well they know it.” Wrong. It is a psychological impossibility to believe in a god or a "holy" book if you know it is a falsification. But the claim is good propaganda for leaders of people unable or unwilling to think things, words, and slogans over.

396 3/75h: “But they (Jews and Christians*) tell a lie against Allah (= they have falsified the Bible*), and well they know it.” This could not be included in the claimed "Mother Book" until after they had said and done it. See 3/75d above.

397 3/75i: "- - - lie - - -". See 2/2b above.

398 3/76a: "- - - those who sell the faith they owe to Allah - - -". Non-Muslims and hypocrites - one of Muhammad's many for Muslims distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

399 3/76b: "- - - those who sell the faith they owe to Allah - - -". Muhammad many places in the Quran - like here - claims that non-Muslims do not believe in Islam because they have "sold" the religion for a better life in this world - a much more pleasing "explanation" for him and his followers than the pure truth: The non-Muslims simply believed or even saw that things were seriously wrong with the Quran and with Muhammad's new religion.

400 3/76c: "- - - faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

401 3/76d: "- - - act right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

402 3/76e: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

**403 3/76f: "- - - Allah loveth - - -". Impossible unless Allah exists.

**404 3/76g: "- - - Allah loveth those who act right". How can he in case love the ones who live according to the Quran? - a number of its moral rules are so obviously wrong. The "constitution" for all moral rules is: "Do onto others like you want others do onto you". Compare this to the Islamic (im)moral code - and even a number of its laws, not to mention its rules for behavior in war - and weep. The only ones not able to see the horror in it, are Muslims who have been though that this is "good and lawful" and "our glorious rights and duties" from they were babies. Read modern religious Islamic literature meant for Muslims, and you still find these medieval and pre-medieval ways of thinking and this upside down moral - or immoral - code. This at the same time as they declare that Islam is the "religion of peace". They should mention that Islam also is the culture and mentality of 630 AD and the "Religion of al-Taqiyya" (the lawful lie) - - - and in reality "the religion of war and suppression"..

405 3/76h: "- - - those who act aright - - -". Those who act according to the rules and demands, etc. in the Quran (= Muslims).

406 3/76i: "- - - act aright - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

407 3/77a: "- - - those who sell the faith they owe Allah - - - for a small price - - -". Expressions like this mainly - and often - are used for Jews and Christians. What is meant is that those bad persons have falsified the Bible to have a richer life on Earth. Instead of admitting that they really did not believe in Muhammad's new religion - and everything we know about history proves it literally was a new religion and that Muhammad's claims about older roots are fairy tales - from honest reasons. It was psychologically much wiser for him if he wanted to promote his religion - and his basis of power - to claim they did it from base motifs, and were morally degenerated and despicable persons. You will find him telling and impressing this claim on his followers several places in the Quran. Blind belief made people believe anything and without using their brains. It still does. Also see 2/75b, 2/130a, and 3/24 above.

408 3/77b: "- - - they (disbelievers in Allah*) shall have no portion in the Hereafter (Paradise*): nor will Allah (deign to) speak to them or look at them on the Day of Judgment, nor will He cleanse them (of sin). They shall have a grievous penalty." Also this (see 3/77a just above) is a claim you find many places in the Quran - believe in Muhammad or you will end in Hell and be subject to the most sadistic and infernal torture thinkable (few things are as physically painful as burns - and the Quran's Hell mainly is a physical hell). Partly it is a warning - Muhammad's claim about how the ones who did not believe in and obey him, would fare in the claimed next life. But as essential for him - and for Islam - is the "Schadenfreude", the inner, base enjoyment over other peoples' bad luck or bad fate which is part of the nature of a large portion of humanity - especially if the unlucky ones are people "we" do not like or are inferior to "us" because of their behavior or something. By playing on this part of human nature, one creates distance between ones followers and "the others", and one creates a feeling among "us" that we are "better" and "morally superior" to "the others".

Muhammad knew about human nature and about how to manipulate humans - parts of what we today call psychology. And this distance between the groups "us" and "them", and the impression and feeling that "they" were inferior sub humans and bad people, he later could use to expel, rob, enslave and mass murder "them" in the surroundings - a task made easier by the fact that the horrors made "us" rich.

Many a dictator and many a man hungry for power have played on such strings. Many also have used religion as their platform of power. And some have done both - like Muhammad.

409 3/77c: "- - - they (disbelievers in Allah*) shall have no portion in the Hereafter (Paradise*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible if "they" were believers in Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

410 3/77d: "- - - grievous penalty". See 3/77b above.

411 3/78a: “(Many Jews and Christians*) distort the Book (here the Bible) - - -“. This is an unproved claim without which Islam is dead - if the Bible is not falsified, that automatically means the Quran is wrong on many central points. But the fact is that in 1400 years Islam have been able to produce only claims and words – both of which are very cheap – whereas science has some 12ooo relevant old papers and fragments (of them some 300 from the 4 Gospels) from all over the then known world, plus some 32ooo other manuscripts with quotations from the Bible - all older than 610 AD when Muhammad started the new religion - which document that the Bible is not distorted. (And you bet: If Islam had found a single real proof for their claim, they had screamed about it). This actually is the best of all proofs for that no proofs exist. Also see “Muhammad in the Bible” (7/157e below), and “Falsified Bible?” in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran".

412 3/78b: "- - - (as they (mainly Jews*) read) you (Muslims*) would think it is part of the Book (here the Bible*), but it is not part of the Book (but claimed to be falsifications as it is different from the Quran*); And they say, 'That is from Allah', but it is not from Allah - - -". This is Muhammad's standard "explanation" for the big differences between the Bible and what he claimed the Bible said: The bad people had falsified the Bible, and what he said was the correct. Both science and Islam today have proved the claim wrong, but it was Muhammad's only way to save his religion when f.x. Jews read from the Bible and thus proved that what Muhammad told it said, was wrong.

413 3/78c: "- - - (as they (mainly Jews*) read) you (Muslims*) would think it is part of the Book (here the Bible*), but it is not part of the Book (but claimed to be falsifications as it is different from the Quran*); And they say, 'That is from Allah' - - -". One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" 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. Anything written down before it is said or done, is unreliable if man has a completely or partly free will and can change his mind. If man has free will - even partly only - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, thus is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind, deeds or 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.

414 3/78d: "- - - it is they (Jews and Christians*) who tell a lie against Allah - - -". = they tell something different from what Muhammad tells, and Muhammad's claim and "explanation" - as normal no proofs - is that the Bible is falsified by them ("who tell a lie against Allah"). See 2/75a+b+c, 2/130a, and 3/78a above.

415 3/78e: "- - - and well they (Jews and Christians*) know it (that the Bible is falsified*)!" This is the kind of accusation one uses to strengthen an argument; "they" not only have done something bad, but have done so willfully. The added psychological effect of course is distaste or similar for those bad people - and if the Muslims believed the claimed "fact" that "they" were bad people, this made it easier for Muhammad later to kill and enslave them - - - and personally rape at least 2 of the young women. (First Rayhana bint Amr, and later 17 year old and newlywed Safiyya bint Huayay after he had tortured her husband to death - Muslims diplomatically say he married her (which he later did) after her husband was killed in the war). Whether he raped more women during his prophethood(?) or not is not known. But he clearly told his followers that during war rape - "sexual relationship" to use a diplomatic expression - was "good and lawful" as long as the woman was not pregnant. Also the fact that his man took the rapes pretty casually makes one think (you react casually to things you are used to).

416 3/78f: "- - - and well they (Jews and Christians*) know it (that the Bible is falsified*)!" This is propaganda - and propaganda only fit for non-thinking persons. It is psychologically impossible to believe in a god and a holy book you know are fakes. And very many of the Jews proved with the loss of their lives that they really believed in their scriptures.

417 3/79a: "It is not (possible)that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the Prophetic Office, should say to people: 'Be my worshippers rather than Allah's - - -". This is correct only if the person really is a prophet - many things have been said by false prophets. In this case this is an invalid defence for Muhammad, as he did not have the gift of making prophesies, and thus was no real prophet - perhaps a messenger, but a prophet unable to make prophesies is no prophet. But see 3/79b+c just below.

418 3/79b: "It is not (possible)that a man, to whom is given the Book, and Wisdom, and the Prophetic Office, should say to people: 'Be my worshippers rather than Allah's - - -". See 3/79a just above: More likely this verse is an argument for the claim that Jesus just was an ordinary prophet, and not divine. The dishonesty here is that Jesus never said anyone should "worship me rather than the god".

419 3/79c: "- - - Wisdom - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like "wisdom", "knowledge", etc. it refers to knowledge about Islam. See 26/83a below.

420 3/79d: "- - - the Prophetic Office - - -". But Muhammad was no real prophet. The definition of a prophet was a person who could see at least parts of the unseen, and thus a person who:

Has the gift of and close enough connection to a god for making prophesies.

Makes prophesies that always or at least mostly come true.

Makes so frequent and/or essential prophesies, that it is a clear part of his mission.

A few things Muhammad said, came true – like it has to do for any person saying many things through many years – and most of what he said which did not come true, was forgotten (also this is what normally happens if it is nothing spectacular). But he did not guess the future correctly often - actually he statistically and according to the laws of probability should have "hit the mark" far more often by sheer chance than he did - there just are a few cases where Muslims will claim he foretold something correctly, and few if any of them are "perfect hits". But then the Quran makes it pretty clear that even though he was intelligent, he had little fantasy and that he also was nearly unable to make innovative thinking (nearly all his tales and his ideas in reality were "borrowed" ones - though often twisted to fit his new religion).

The main things here are that Muhammad never indicated that anything of what he said was meant as prophesies, that he never indicated, not to mention claimed, that he had the gift of prophesying, that it nowhere is documented that all/most of what he said about the future came true (point 2 above), and finally that both he and Islam said and says that Muhammad was unable to see the unseen (extra revealing here is that the old Biblical title for a prophet, was "a seer" - one who saw the unseen (f.x. 1. Sam. 9/9)) and also that there were no miracles connected to Muhammad “except the Quran” (prophesying is a kind of miracle - seeing what has not yet happened). (This fact that Islam admits there were no miracle connected to Muhammad "except the revelation of the Quran" also is a solid proof for that all the miracles connected to Muhammad mentioned in the Hadiths, are made up stories). Also see 30/40a and 30/46a, and we also should add that his favorite wife (and infamous child wife) Aishah according to Hadiths (f.x. Al-Bukhari) states that anyone saying Muhammad could foresee things, were wrong.

Verse 7/188b also is very relevant here: "If I (Muhammad*) had knowledge of the Unseen (= what is hidden or what has not happened yet*), I should have - - -". IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT MUHAMMAD DID NOT HAVE THE PROPHETS' ABILITY TO SEE "THE UNSEEN" - he was no real prophet.

Also relevant here is that the original title of the Jewish prophets as mentioned was not "prophet" but "seer" - one who saw at least parts of the unseen. (F.x. 1. Sam. 9/9#, 1. Sam. 9/11, 1. Sam. 9/18, 1. Sam. 9/19, 2. Kings. 17/13, 1. Chr. 9/22, 1. Chr. 26/28, 1. Chr. 29/29, 2. Chr. 9/29, 2. Chr. 16/7, 2. Chr.16/10, 2. Chr. 19/2, 2. Chr. 29/25, Amos 7/12, Mic. 3/7 - some places the two titles even are used side by side). Muhammad thus so definitely was no seer - prophet - even according to his own words; he had no "knowledge of the unseen".

Many liked - and like - the title prophet, and there have been made other definitions for this title - the most common of these are "one who brings messages from a god", or "one who represents a god", or "one who acts/talks on behalf of a god". But the fact remains: Without being able to prophesy, he or she is no real prophet. A messenger for someone or something - ok. An apostle - ok. But not a real prophet.

***This is a fact no Muslim will admit: Muhammad in reality simply was no real prophet or seer. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself – or perhaps an apostle – but not a real prophet. He only “borrowed” that impressive and imposing title. It is up to anyone to guess why.

Also see 30/40h below.

421 3/79e:"It is not (possible) that (a prophet*) should say to people: 'Be ye my worshipers rather than Allah's.'" A number of Muslim scholars think this clear claim, but with somewhat unclear reference refers to Jesus - that it is impossible that Jesus did not come to tell about Allah. To Quote Yusuf Ali (YA414): "It is not in reason or in the nature of things (claims, not documentation*) that Allah's messenger (according to the Quran and Islam Jesus was a messenger for Allah, something which would have been impossible in the strong Yahweh culture in Israel at that time - he had got few/no followers and had been arrested/killed fast*) should preach against Allah (= a religion different from Islam*). Jesus came to preach and convey the true message of Allah (= the Quran/Islam*)", according to Muhammad. As it is strongly proved by both science and even more strongly by Islam that the Bible is not falsified, this merits no comments, except on behalf of the ones who does not know the Bible well: There are so big and so fundamental differences between the teaching of Jesus in the Bible and the teaching of Muhammad in the Quran, that you have to be religiously very blind - or with little knowledge - to be able to believe the two religions came from one and the same god. Even with all the superficial similarities between Islam and Christianism it is difficult to find another of the big religions which fundamentally is more different from Jesus and NT than Islam. One is the religion of truth and love, the other the religion of war, resting partly on the use of lies (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, "war is deceit" - and most things are jihad/"holy" war, break your promise/word/oath if that gives a better result (and pay expiation afterwards if necessary - 2/26h, 2/224e-f, 2/225a, 3/54b, 4/142a, 5/89a+b, 8/30, 10/21b, 13/42a, 27/50, 86/16)).

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

To save your or others' health or life.

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

To make peace in a family.

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

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

To deceive opponents/enemies.

To betray enemies.

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

To defend Islam. (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 - but that is it.

422 3/79f: "It is not (possible) that (a prophet*) should say to people: 'Be ye my worshipers rather than Allah's.'" Perhaps not, but it is quite possible for a man to say: "I am a prophet. I dictate a book. Obey me on behalf of my claimed god." Many have said so - some with and some without a special "holy" book. Their followers call them "messengers" or "prophets", the correct title mostly is "false prophet".

423 3/79g: "- - - Him (Allah*) Who is truly the Cherisher of all - - -". This only can be true if Allah exists and is a major god. In addition see 1/1a above.

425 3/79i: "- - - the Book - - -". Here it is somewhat unclear - the Quran frequently is pretty unclear - if this refers to the Quran or to the Bible. On the face of it, it is the Quran, but if the text refers to Jesus, it must be the Bible - or more exact the Torah and the other Jewish scriptures from which one later got OT.

426 3/80a: "Nor would he (a true prophet*) instruct you to take angels - - - for Lords and Patrons". No Christian would understand this sentence unless he/she also knew the Quran and some more of Islam: There is no place in the NT where one is instructed to take one or more angels "for Lord and Patron" - not even a place in the Bible where the text is possible to misunderstand like that.

But then there is the claim that The Holy Spirit just is another name for the angel Gabriel. Gabriel brought messages to Muhammad, but the Quran also a couple of times mention that the Holy Spirit also did so: Logical shortcut - and like some other places in the Quran a logically invalid one: The Holy Spirit = the angel Gabriel. But no-one who has ever read the Bible with an open mind, would ever get the idea that the Holy Spirit is an angel - whatever it is, it clearly is something very special and very different from an angel.

As for prophets as "Lord and Patron", there remains the question of saints - though they normally never was prophets originally. Here the Quran may have a point, as saints is not something from the Bible.

And finally there remains the question of Jesus. Here it is no doubt that the NT unmistakeingly indicates that Jesus is divine - and Islam has till date never proved this wrong - lots of claims, but only claims. Also see 3/80b just below.

427 3/80b: "Nor would he (a true prophet*) instruct you to take - - - prophets for Lords and Patrons". This one is easier than the one just above: Jesus is just another prophet (has to be in order to make it possible for Muhammad to be the greatest one), and thus it is wrong to revere him - all this according to the Quran". But it may refer to saints - but these you only find in parts of the Christianity - and just in this case the Quran may be right, as there nowhere in the Bible is any word about saints in the Catholic meaning of the word.

428 3/80c: "Would he (a prophet - here indicated Jesus*) bid you unbelief after ye have bowed your will (to Allah in Islam)?" To say the least of it: A strong contradiction to the Bible - Jesus asked everyone to believe in Yahweh, not in al-Lah (later renamed Allah by Muhammad).

429 3/80d: "Would he (a prophet - here likely indicated Jesus*) bid you unbelief after ye have bowed your will (to Allah in Islam)?" Even forgetting all the other "peculiarities": Who is bidding unbelief - the Quran with all its errors and clearly not from a god, or the ones skeptic to the Quran?

##430 3/81a: "Behold, Allah took the Covenant of the Prophets, saying:" - - - then comes to you a Messenger (Muhammad*) confirming what is with you (= the scriptures the prophets had and their teachings*); you must believe in him and rendering him help". There is nothing like this in the entire Bible. Besides: How could the prophets help Muhammad? - they were all dead hundreds of years before Muhammad was even born - many of them a thousand years and more before.

431 3/81b: "Behold, Allah took the Covenant of the Prophets, saying:" - - - then comes to you a Messenger (Muhammad*) confirming what is with you (= the scriptures the prophets had and their teachings*); you must believe in him and rendering him help". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

432 3/81c: "- - - you (the Jewish prophets*) must believe in him (Muhammad*) - - -". How could they, when they were dead centuries and more before Muhammad was born, and even a little more before he started telling what he wants people to believe? NB: There is nothing like this in the Bible.

433 3/81d: "- - - you (the Jewish prophets*) must believe in him (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

##434 3/81e: "I (Allah*) give you (the prophets*) a Book - - -". As mentioned other places the prophets got according to the Quran. The Quran claims that all societies to all times and all places have been sent prophets teaching Islam (but neither science nor Islam has found the tiniest traces of such prophets or teaching) - Hadiths mention 124ooo through the times, and even this may just be a symbolic number. And as you see here they as mentioned each got a book which was a copy of the claimed "mother book" in Heaven, similar to the copy Muhammad claimed he got - the Quran. The claimed "mother book" either is made by the god or have existed since eternity according to Muslims - and is revered by Allah and his angels. You of course are permitted to believe this, but the normal reaction when you meet this claim after having read the Quran and all its mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, helpless language (helpless in bringing clear messages not to be misunderstood), etc., is disbelief or a hearty laughter - no god would revere a quality like the Quran.

435 3/81f: "- - - then comes to you a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A "foretelling" about Muhammad made by Muhammad. (A real foretelling had been a strong indication of something. But also a claimed "foretelling" has effect on his followers if the followers believe in it).

436 3/81g: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

437 3/81h: "- - - then comes to you a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". There is nothing about a messenger or a prophet after Jesus in all the Bible - this in stark contradiction to the Quran's and Islam's claims (if Muhammad is not foretold in both OT and NT the Quran is wrong, and thus Islam and its Muslims cannot admit the plain fact that Muhammad nowhere is mentioned in any form in the Bible - they try to find him by twisting texts and facts, but only wishful thinking Muslims are able to believe in those gymnastics. Muhammad simply is not and never was in the Bible.

438 3/81i: This is a funny one: The Messenger referred to, clearly is Muhammad. Letter for letter: It is impossible not to understand that he (Allah) visited - "saying (to each of them*)" - each and every prophet before Muhammad (Islam claims there have been 124ooo) and confirmed "what is with you (the Quran*)". No comments except: A busy job for Allah.

439 3/81j: "- - - then comes to you a Messenger (Muhammad*), confirming what is with you (the Bible*) - - -". Wrong. There are so many fundamental and basic thoughts, ethics and moral rules which are so deeply different in the two books that the Quran is no confirmation of the Bible. And we remind you that science - and Islam - long since has proved that the Quran's never documented claim that the Bible is falsified, is wrong. Actually it is one of those claims Muhammad had to know he had taken out of thin air and thus knew he was lying (if he was not mentally ill - TLE f.x. (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy)). But it was his only possible "explanation" if he was to save his religion and his own position as a claimed prophet and the leader for his religion.

440 3/81k: "- - - then comes to you a Messenger (Muhammad*), confirming what is with you (the Bible*); you must believe in him - - -". Muhammad normally is more of a psychology than in this plump message, but it is a clear message and may be efficient towards blind believers wanting to believe.

441 3/81l: "Allah said: 'Do ye (all the old prophets*) agree, and take this Covenant (including believing in and helping Muhammad*) as binding on you?' They said: 'We agree'". There is nothing even remotely similar to this in the Bible.

442 3/81m: "Allah said: 'Do ye (all the old prophets*) agree, and take this Covenant (including believing in and helping Muhammad*) as binding on you?' They said: 'We agree'". He said: 'Then bear witness (about Muhammad*) - - -". They cannot have been very reliable, as exactly none of the known prophets ever mentioned him - included not Abraham, not Moses, and not Jesus to mention 3 of the main prophets according to the Quran (and yes, we know about the cherry-picked, wrong claims concerning 5. Mos. 18/15 and 18/18, and about the helper Jesus promised his disciples (the Holy Spirit) which Islam claims meant Muhammad 500+ years after the last disciple was dead).

443 3/82a: "If any turn back after this (leave Islam), they are perverted transgressors." - just kill them?

444 3/82b: "- - - perverted transgressors - - -". One of the many nice Islamic names for non-Muslims who does not want to become Muslims - or in this case perhaps for Muslims leaving Islam. Such names have their psychological effect, and are even today one of the reasons why integration between Muslims and non-Muslims are difficult - who wants to make friends with perverted transgressors?

*445 3/83a: “- - - all creatures (= angels, jinns, man and animals*) in the heavens and on the earth have, willing or unwilling bowed to His (Allah’s*) will (accepted Islam)”. Muslims will have to produce very strong proofs to make us believe that everything, included snails and flatworms and mosquitoes have accepted Islam and pray to Allah.

446 3/83b: “- - - heavens - - -“. See 2/22d.

447 3/83c: "- - - willing or unwilling - - -". What about 2/256: “- - - no compulsion in religion – - - “?

448 3/83d: "- - - to Him (Allah*) shall they all (all creatures*) be brought back (at the Day of Doom*)". This only can be true if Allah exists, if he is a god, if he is behind what is told in the Quran, and if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth about this.

449 3/83e: "- - - to Him (Allah*) shall they all (all creatures*) be brought back (at the Day of Doom*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells this is Yahweh's job. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

450 3/84a: "- - - what (the Quran) has been revealed to us (Muslims*) - - -". Is the Quran really revealed? - in case not from a god; too many mistakes, etc. Then from whom or what?

451 3/84b: "- - - what (the Quran) has been revealed to us (Muslims*) and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and the (12 Jewish*) tribes- - -". One more of the claims that it was the Quran which was given to each and every of the old prophets (see 3/81e above). One more claim showed wrong by science and by Islam by being unable to find the slightest trace of Islam or something similar older than 610 AD. (Islam's claim that the Mosaic - Jewish - religion and culture was a falsified version of Islam does not hold water.)

452 3/84c: "- - - Abraham - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

453 3/84d: "- - - Ishmael - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

454 3/84e: "- - - Isaac - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

455 3/84f: "- - - Jacob - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

456 3/84g: "- - - the Tribes - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

457 3/84h: "- - - the Tribes - - -". The 12 Jewish tribes.

*458 3/84i: “- - - in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets- - - -”. What is indicated here, is that all got the same book - the Quran or something very similar (actually the claim is a copy of the claimed "mother book" in Heaven). But the claim is proved wrong by science and even stronger by Islam by being unable to find and document any falsifications in the Bible. You bet Islam had told about it if they had found even one single provable falsification! Then also there is the fact that one has got some 44ooo papers from before 610 AD relevant to the Bible, but not one single similar to the Quran. If there had been 124ooo or more prophets teaching Islam, where are the traces? 44ooo : 0 means something in that claim is wrong.

459 3/84j: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

460 3/84k: "- - - Jesus - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

461 3/84l: "- - - the Prophets - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

*462 3/84m: “- - - in (the Books) given to Moses”. Wrong. Moses (if he ever existed) lived 1300-1200 BC (if the exodus from Egypt ever happened, it took place ca. 1235 BC - during the reign of pharaoh Ramses II according to science. Moses then was 80 according to the Bible, and lived for another 40 years the Bible says). These 5 books (the Torah) were written not earlier than ca. 800 BC, and may be as late as 500 BC, according to science, but named after Moses. Moses was never given those books (though he was orally given the law, which he himself wrote down later, according to the Bible – the laws later became part of “The Books of Moses” (what Moses wrote down also sometimes was called "the Book of Covenance")) - but this Muhammad did not know - - - whereas a god had known it. See 2/53a above.

463 3/84n: "- - - we (Muslims*) make no distinctions between them (the prophets*)". Wrong. Muslims treat Muhammad differently. And they should make one more distinction: Between real and false prophets - there have been many more of the last ones than of the real ones.(5.Mos.18/21 - just after 18/15 and 18/18, which Islam claims indicate Muhammad - - - but they ALWAYS drop 18/21 and some other relevant verses).

464 3/85a: “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him - - -.” This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses, as it does not claim actions against the "bad" ones: (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5 which abrogates many of the same verses): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51a, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5. (At least 88 contradictions). But maybe it is 3/85a which is abrogated by all the other ones?

465 3/85b: "- - - in the Hereafter he (the non-Muslim*) will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good)". This only can be true if the Quran is reliable, and if Allah in addition exists and is a major god + in the god the non-Muslim believe in - f.x. Yahweh - does not exist.

466 3/86a: “How shall Allah guide those who reject faith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad*) was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them?” Well, on basis of this sentence it is not possible for Allah to guide anyone, because Muhammad/the Quran is proved (by science and by Islam) full of mistakes, and not one single so called sign is proved true - with the possible exception of some “borrowed” from the Bible, and they in case prove Yahweh/God, not Allah.

467 3/86b: “How shall Allah guide those (Jews, Christians*) who reject faith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad*) was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them?” This refers to Muhammad's claim that one or a few Jews and Christians had admitted (maybe true, maybe not) that he was a prophet, and here he claims it then was unjust and not understandable that not also all the others admitted the same. It is very clear even from Islamic literature that the reason why they did not believe in Muhammad, was that they simply did not believe in his new religion and stuck to the Bible.

468 3/86c: “How shall Allah guide those (Jews and Christians*) who reject faith after they accepted it and bore witness that the Messenger (Muhammad*) was true and that Clear Signs had come unto them?” Some Muslim scholars (f.x. A3/69) say that this is not about what the Jews (and few Christians) said and did, but about the Islamic claim that Muhammad is foretold in the Bible, something Muhammad here claimed they knew, but refused to admit. As you have to have very strange glasses to find Muhammad in the Bible - he is not there (see 7/157e below) - this sentence in case is invalid. (But it is a claim Islam cannot afford to drop, as it is said in the Quran that one finds Muhammad both in OT and in the Gospels. If they then do not find him, the Quran is wrong and cannot be from a god, and Islam is a made up religion - not from a god. And the belief of the fathers and the belief you have built your life on, is more essential that to find out if that belief can be true or not - for Muslims like for believers in many other religions), Also Islam has not one single proof for Allah, and a claimed indication in the Bible at least would be an indication - if it had been true. See the chapter about "Muhammad in the Bible?" in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" - https://www.1000mistakes.com , or 7/157e below.

469 3/86d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

470 3/86e: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

471 3/86f: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) was true - - -". Contradicted by the Bible to say the least of it. Especially in NT there are miles and light-years between Yahweh and Allah and their teachings. 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.

472 3/86g: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

473 3/86h: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. See 2/2b, 2/39b and 2/99.

474 3/86i: "- - - Allah guides not - - -". He cannot guide very many by means of a guidebook like the Quran.

475 3/86j: "- - - people unjust". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is as compared to the Quran's own partly immoral moral code, and also to the partly unjust sharia laws.

476 3/86k: "- - - people unjust". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

477 3/87a: "- - - on them (see 3/86b-c above*) (rests) the curse of Allah - - -". See 3/77b above.

478 3/87b: "- - - on them (see 3/86b-c above*) (rests) the curse of Allah, of His angels, and of all mankind". We cannot tell about the effect on Allah and his claimed angels. But even though this verse primarily talks about people leaving Islam, it may sometimes have weighed heavily for Muslims starting horrors also against other non-Muslims. (Muslims often complain about the crusaders, but holy Heaven how much worse and on how much greater scale they behaved themselves - f.x. in Armenia, Africa, Sind (now approximately Pakistan) and India.)

479 3/87c: "- - - the curse of Allah - - -". This only can exist if Allah exists and in addition is a god.

480 3/87d: "- - - on them (who leave Islam*) (rests) the curse - - - of all mankind - - -". What Muslim can co-exist with such ones? And: No compulsion in religion?

481 3/88a: "In that will they (the ones who leave Islam*) dwell - - -". In the curse of Allah - in reality in Hell. If Allah exists and if no other god exists - f.x. Yahweh.

482 3/88b: "- - - nor will their (the ones who leave Islam*) penalty be lightened - - -". See 3/77b above.

483 3/88-89: "- - - nor will their (the ones who leave Islam*) penalty be lightened, nor respite be their (lot) - Except for those who repent (even) after that (see 3/89a just below*) - - -". The Bible will say that the ones who repent and believe in Yahweh, not those who believe in Muhammad and Allah, will be forgiven.

484 3/89a: "- - - those that repent - - -". The ones returning to Islam or becoming Muslims.

485 3/89b: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

486 3/89c: "- - - verily Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

487 3/90a: "- - - those who reject faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many for Muslims negative names for non-Muslims.

488 3/90b: "- - - those who reject faith after they accepted it - - -". Muslims leaving Islam. Muslims like to claim it never happens, but it happens frequently - and happened frequently at the time of Muhammad, too.

489 3/90c: "- - - faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran

490 3/90d: "- - - never will their (those who have left Islam*) repentance be accepted - - -." To leave Islam is unforgiveable. "Let there be no compulsion in religion"? And compare this to NT!!

491 3/90e: "- - - for they (who leave Islam*) are those who have - - - gone astray". Only it Allah exists, if he is behind what the Quran tells, and the book in addition tells the full truth and only the truth. If on the other hand the Quran is a made up book, and "the others" happen to follow a god which really exists, somebody else are astray. Not to mention that the Muslims in case is very astray - especially if the real god is one preaching a good and benevolent religion, as it will be difficult for him to accept souls from a war and hate and suppressing - and dishonest - religion.

492 3/90f: "- - - for they (who leave Islam*) are those who have - - - gone astray". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that it is the ones who have not found or have left the Bible who are astray - and the Quran is very far from the Bible (NT is nearly the antithesis to the Quran). 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.

493 3/91a: "- - - those who reject faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many - for Muslims - negative names for non-Muslims.

494 3/91b: "- - - faith - - -". See 3/90a above.

495 3/91c: "For such (non-Muslims*) is (in store) a penalty grievous - - -." See 3/77b above.

496 3/92a: "By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love - - -". - among other things gifts to finance warfare. Thieving and robbing pays - but takes some money each time a raid is to be outfitted, not to mention a war. We may add that most of Muhammad's raids were raids of aggression to steal/rob riches and to take captives for extortion or slaves. But all the same it was named "holy wars" and "holy battles". (Well, to be just: Also gifts to the needy and the religion, etc. were good gifts).

 

497 3/92b: "By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love - - -". Another of the fundamental differences between the Bible - and especially NT - and the Quran: In NT it is you mind and your belief in Yahweh which count most. Good deeds are plusses, but your honest belief and what is in your mind are the decisive points. In the Quran - like you see here - your deeds are what decide your possible 2. life. Yahweh and Allah the same god with two so fundamentally different teachings on such an essential point? Nope.

498 3/92c: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this it is meant as in the book's own partly immoral moral code.

499 3/92d: "- - - truth - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this it is meant as in the book's own partly immoral moral code. Also see 2/2b above.

500 3/92e: "- - - Allah knoweth it well". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

501 3/93a: "All food was lawful to the Children of Israel - - - before the Law (of Moses) was revealed". From where is this information? It is not from the Bible, and it is not from any god (as no god ever was involved in a book with so much wrong like the Quran). Then remains dark forces/a devil (which the moral(?) code, the partly immoral laws and the rules for thieving, blood and war may indicate), a mental illness (like TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - like modern medical science believe), or a cold and scheming brain, like all the wrong science from that time may indicate.

502 3/93b: "- - - the Children of Israel - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

503 3/93c: "- - - Israel - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

504 3/93d: "- - - the Law (of Moses) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

505 3/93e: "- - - (- - - Moses) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

506 3/93f: "- - - truth". See 2/2b above.

507 3/94a: "If any, after this, invent a lie and attribute it to Allah, they are indeed unjust wrongdoers". Is this also the case if the Quran partly or all is made up, but attributed to Allah? If someone makes up a religion, he has a great advantage: He can lie and cheat and deceive as much as he wants, knowing there will be no punishment, as the religion is made up.

508 3/94b: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

509 3/94c: "- - - unjust - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

510 3/94d: "- - - unjust wrongdoers - - -". The word "Wrongdoers" in the Quran normally means "non-Muslims". It is one of the many unsympathetic names - here strengthened by "unjust" - Muhammad uses many places for creating distance between his followers and all the others (extreme sects and new religions often want such a distance, partly to make admission to correcting information from the outside more difficult, partly to give the followers a feeling of exclusivity, and sometimes for other reasons like creating a superiority feeling like in Islam - a feeling making war and killing easier, because the victims are not reckoned to be fully human, or at least bad people - f.x. "unjust wrongdoers".

511 3/95a: "Allah speaketh the Truth - - -". Not if the Quran is a typical sample of what he says.

512 3/95b: "Allah speaketh the Truth - - -". Not if it is not Allah who speaks - and no god ever told the Quran with all its errors, etc.

514 3/95d: "- - - the Truth - - -". That the Quran is the truth is contradicted and denied by the Bible - see 2/42c above. 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.

515 3/95e: "- - - the religion of Abraham - - -". Islam claims to be the religion of Abraham - - - but have never documented anything. And to say the least of it: It is contradicting the Bible, which talks about another god; Yahweh. And we remind you that both science and even stronger Islam have proved that the Bible is not falsified. In some 12ooo manuscripts and fragments from the Bible + some 32ooo other relevant old documents from before 610 AD not one proved falsification is found, not even by Islam. Also see 3/93a above.

516 3/95f: "- - - Abraham - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

517 3/95g: "- - - (Abraham was*) sane in faith - - -". Faith in the Quran means Islam. So what is said here is that Abraham was a good Muslim (the same is said many other places in the Quran). Believe it whoever wants. But see 3/93a and 3/95d above.

*518 3/96a: “The first House (of worship) - - -". The mosque Kabah in Mecca.

*519 3/96b: “The first House (of worship) appointed for man was that at Bakkah. Wrong. Even if we should accept that Abraham “made the foundations” of the Kabah in Mecca, he lived (if he is not fiction) around 2000-1800 BC. At that time the first temples, etc. in f.x. Egypt and Mesopotamia were old. Today it is possible to find the real age of many things. It is symptomatic that as far as we know, Islam has not tried to see if it is possible to find the real age of the oldest parts of the Kabah. Wagging tongues insinuates that may be the reason is that they are afraid it is younger than 3800 years. - what if it turns out it is built around 100 BC - or AD - f.x? - or even later?

Islam also has one problem concerning measuring the age of the Kabah: They will have to use qualified western experts. If they use Muslim experts - who may be well qualified to do it - and find that it f.x. is 5630 years old, not one single soul will believe them unconditionally, because of "al-Taqiyya" - the lawful lie - which Muslims not only are permitted to use, but are advised to use "if necessary", when it comes to promoting or defending Islam. But non-Muslims are not permitted to visit Kabah. We may also add that it is further said that Abraham built on the even older ruins of a temple made by Adam - of course Adam like Abraham went all the way to the desert proto-Mecca and built a big temple he never could visit from his home a thousand kilometers off (Adam - and his Paradise - real of fiction, mostly are believed to have been placed somewhere in the rich wetlands in what is now South Iraq), but then Adam's temple was destroyed at the time of Noah - but as often before Muslims only claim, seldom/never prove, so believe it who wants.

(We may add that some Muslims have corrected this verse to that the Quran is talking about the first house of worship for a monotheistic god, but that is not what the Quran says. Besides: If the Quran or the Hadiths is correct and there have been prophets to all times and every people – 124ooo the Hadith says – Islam will have a tough time to prove that not one single all those prophets or their followers in the very early time before Abraham, have never built even a small house for worship.” Also see 2/127a above.

One extra small detail: The foundations/temple the Quran claims Abraham built for his small family in Mecca - at the time of Abraham a desert and an empty valley - was so big that when the rich Mecca rebuilt it around 600 AD they could not afford to rebuild to the same size according to Hadiths. Any comments necessary?

520 3/96c: "- - - Bakkah - - -". Another and infrequently used name for Mecca.

521 3/96d: "(The mosque Kabah is) full of blessing and guidance for all kinds of beings - - -". Only if it really is sanctified by a god and not just "represents" a made up one.

522 3/96e: "- - - guidance - - -". This claimed guidance is based on the Quran - see 16/107 below.

523 3/97a: “- - - Signs manifest - - -“. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.

524 3/97b: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

525 3/97c: “In it (Kabah in Mecca*) are Signs manifest; (for example), the Station of Abraham - - -“. For one thing Abraham never was in Mecca (see 2/127a above) and never built Kabah or its foundations. But there is a stone there, with a mark in it. Islam calls it the Station of Abraham and tells that the mark is from Abraham’s feet when he was building the Kabah. Which worker building a house has ever in all the history and far before, been standing so long on the same hard natural stone, that his feet made a mark in that stone lasting for millennia? (Well, some say that by a miracle the stone became soft - an easy explanation and way out. According to Hadiths Muhammad was known for mostly choosing the easiest solutions and ways out).

This is the kind of sure proofs the Quran tells about - and which many of the Muslims even believe in.

526 3/97d: "- - - Abraham - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

527 3/97e: "- - - pilgrimage thereto is a duty men (what about women?*) owe to Allah - - -". There nowhere is given a good reason for this - neither for the pilgrimage nor for why one owes it to Allah. Many words, but no logical and good explanation. Except that it was a pagan tradition Muhammad took over.

528 3/97f: "- - - faith". Islam.

529 3/98a: "- - - People of the Book - - -". Normally Jews and Christians, but also Sabeans are included (most likely from the mainly Christian Saba/Sabah/Sheba - now approximately Yemen. See 2/62f above).

530 3/98b: "- - - People of the Book - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

531 3/98c: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

532 3/98d: "- - - People of the Book! Why reject the Signs of Allah- - - -". Simply because there exists no unmistakable sign of Allah.

533 3/98e: "- - - Allah is Himself witness to all ye do". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

534 3/99a: "- - - People of the Book - - -". Normally Jews and Christians, but also Sabeans are included (most likely from the mainly Christian Saba/Sabah/Sheba - now approximately Yemen. Also see 2/62f above).

535 3/99b: "- - - People of the Book - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

536 3/99c: "Why obstruct ye (Jews, Christians*) those who believe from the Path of Allah - - -". Simply because they saw that something was seriously wrong with Muhammad's teaching and with Islam.

537 3/99d: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims.

538 3/99e: "- - - the Path of Allah - - -". As the Quran is from no god, included Allah - too much is wrong - also the "path" it describes hardly from Allah.

539 3/99f: "- - - the Path of Allah - - -". Intended meaning: The road to the Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f below. 

540 3/99g: “(Jews and Christians*) ye were yourselves witnesses (to Allah’s covenant)”. Wrong. They were witnesses to Yahweh’s covenant(s). Allah is not the same god as Yahweh, unless the god is seriously schizophrenic, as the teachings fundamentally are too different. If Islam still insists on the opposite, they will have to bring proofs, not only the old and still not documented loose claims.

541 3/99h: "But Allah is not unmindful of all that ye (non-Muslims*) do". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below - and 3/77b above. If he exists.

542 3/100a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.

543 3/100b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians, and Sabeans. The last ones are not often mentioned, but most likely were the inhabitants of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (approximately Yemen today) - mainly Christians (see 2/62f above). (Though Muslims often claim it was a Christian sect in what is now Iraq - it still exists, but very small (some 2ooo members) - or a monotheistic sect in old Arabia).

544 3/100c: "- - - People of the Book - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

545 3/100d: "- - - they (some Jews and Christians*) would (indeed) render you (Muslims*)apostates after you have believed". Apostates from what as the Quran is not from a god? - too much wrong in the book.

546 3/100e: "- - - (indeed) - - -". See 2/2b above.

547 3/101a: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran.

548 3/101b: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

549 3/101c: "- - - among you lives the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". But as the Quran and thus the message are not from a god, the question is: The messenger for whom or what in case? Also see 63/5a below.

550 3/101d: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad) - - -". See 63/5a below.

551 3/101e: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

552 3/101f: "Whoever holds firmly to Allah will be shown a way that is straight". If Allah exists. If he in addition is a god. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth.

553 3/101g: "- - - a way that is straight". Intended meaning: The road to the Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f below.

554 3/102a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.

555 3/102b: "- - - die not except in a state - of Islam". To say the least of it: Contradicted by the Bible and especially by NT - "the Religion of Love" often contradicts "the (claimed*) Religion of Peace", which in reality is the only remaining big religion of discrimination, suppression and war (read the surahs from Medina before you protest to this). 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.

556 3/103a: "- - - the Rope which Allah (stretches out for you (Muslims*)) - - -". The rope is Islam - ok for salvation if Allah exists and is a major god, invalid if the Quran is not from a god - which it clearly is not (no god delivers a book of that quality).

557 3/103b: "- - - be not divided among yourselves (Muslims*) - - -". According to our information there have been some 3ooo Muslim sects through the times. Some have "died" a natural death. Some have been suppressed. Some have been drowned in blood. And some still exists.

558 3/103c: "- - - Allah's favor on you (Muslims*) - - -". This only is correct if Allah exists and in addition has done the favors. If not there are other explanations - remember that Muhammad had a strong tendency to credit his god with anything good - see f.x. 11/7a below.

559 3/103d: "- - - ye (Muslims*) were enemies - - -". This may refer to the tribal strife in the disorganized old Arabia, or more likely the more or less civil war in Yathrib/Medina before Muhammad.

560 3/103e: "- - - brethren - - -". See 2/76b above.

561 3/103f: "- - - the Pit of Fire - - -". Hell.

562 3/103g: "- - - He (Allah*) saved you (Muslims*) from it (Hell*) - - -". This may - may - only be true if Allah exists and in addition is a major god.

563 3/103h: "- - - He (Allah*) saved you (Muslims*) from it (Hell*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible which tells Yahweh is the savior (a god the Quran wrongly mixes with Allah - an impossible claim for so different teachings). 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.

564 3/103i: “Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear - - -“. There is not one single real sign/proof, not to mention clear sign or proof for neither Allah nor Muhammad in the Quran – see 2/39b and 2/99 above.

565 3/103j: "- - - that ye (Muslims*) may be guided - - -". But in which way if they follow all the mistakes and the partly immoral moral code in the Quran? Also see 16/107 below.

#566 3/104a: "Let there arise out of you (Muslims*) a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong - - -". The world is still waiting for this - the Muslims instead follow the Quran and its somewhat special laws and rules.

567 3/104b: "- - - good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

568 3/104c: "- - - right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

569 3/104d: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

570 3/104e: "- - - they (good Muslims*) are the ones to attain felicity". If Allah exists. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth.

571 3/104f: "- - - they (good Muslims*) are the ones to attain felicity". Strongly contradicted by The Bible - and by most other religions. 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.

572 3/105a: "- - - those who - - - fall into disputations after receiving clear Signs - - -". Sects splitting off and/or persons leaving Islam.

573 3/105b: “- - - clear Sign - - -“. See 2/39b above.

574 3/105c: "- - - dreadful Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

575 3/106a: "- - - the Day when - - -". = The Day of Doom.

576 3/106b: "Did ye (non-Muslims, apostates*) reject Faith, after accepting it? Taste then the Penalty for rejecting Faith". One of the worst sins possible to commit according to Muhammad, was and is - to leave Islam.

577 3/106c: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

578 3/106d: "- - - the Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

579 3/106e: This verse simply is not from the Bible.

580 3/106-108: Bad people will go to Hell, good Muslims will go to Paradise, this is what the book states here - without any documentation - and continues: “These are the Signs of Allah”. Well, it is a statement hanging in thin air, not to say vacuum - typically for the Quran; not proved and impossible to prove. Believe it if you are primitive and naïve enough - especially if you remember the fact that all and everything is based only on the words of a somewhat “special” warlord, rapist and dictator who liked power - and ask questions if you are not entirely naïve. Also see 3/77b above.

581 3/107a: "- - - white - - -". Such references to white and black races are not from the Bible.

582 3/107b: "- - - therein (Paradise*) to dwell (for ever)". There are some verses in the Quran which may indicate that Hell is not quite forever (6/128c, 11/107b, 43/74d,51/13c, 78/23) and one (11/108c) which also may indicate similar for Paradise. Muslims claims that this in case only means that the inhabitants of Paradise will go to an even better place, but this is not said in the Quran.

583 3/108a: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

584 3/108b: "- - - Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

585 3/108c: "- - - Truth - - -". The Bible contradicts much of what the Quran claims is the truth - some of it strongly. Also see 2/42c above.

586 3/108d: "- - - Allah means no injustice to any of His creatures". Read the unjust parts of the sharia laws, the immoral parts of Islam's moral code, Islam's rules for behavior during and after raids and wars, etc. and weep. Also see 1/1a above.

587 3/109a: "To Allah belongs all that is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -". There are many hundreds and more of loose claims like this one, built on no proof and no documentation, in the Quran. Words are cheap.

588 3/109b: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – see 2/22d.

589 3/109c: "- - - to Him (Allah*) do all questions go back (for decision)". = Allah decides and predestines all things - and everything he predestines according to his unchangeable Plan. (Contradicting claim: Man has free will - impossible if Allah decides all things on beforehand. This makes up one of Islam's impossible questions: Predestination contra free will for man - impossible even theoretically to combine, even for a god. Islam is unable to explain this combination - only claims that it has to be true anyhow, as Allah/Muhammad says so in the Quran(!!)). Also see 3/154e, 6/149a and 14/22b below.

As for predestination contra free will for man, “The Message of the Quran” has this comment (6/141 to verse 6/149):

“In other words, the real relationship between Allah’s knowledge of the future (and, therefore, the ineluctably of what is to happen in the future) on one side, and man’s free will, on the other – two propositions which, on the face of it, seem to contradict one another – is beyond man’s comprehension; but since both are postulated by Allah (in the Quran*), both must be true.

Simply the ultimate pinnacle of clear speech. And the ultimate victory not for blind faith, but a blind faith based on naivety and intellectual unconsciousness.

IT ALSO IS THE ULTIMATE DEFEAT FOR THE CLAIM THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO COMBINE THE CLAIM THAT MAN HAS FREE WILL WITH THE CLAIM THAT ALLAH DECIDES AND PREDESTINES EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR LIFE.

Predestination contra man’s free will actually is a version of “the Time Travel Paradox”, which is long since proved unsolvable. There is no way Allah can even be fully clairvoyant, not to mention decide everything on beforehand, and man at the same time have free will - not even partly free will, like some Muslims try to explain the problem away with. (More in the chapter about predestination in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran".)

The ultimately clear and easy to understand claim.

590 3/110a: “Ye (Muslims*) are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind - - -”. It is not possible to disbelieve that Muslims are the top of existing humans and human societies, as the Quran says so - and not one believing Muslim seems to be aware of how cheap words are. It also is strengthening the picture of non-Muslims as vermin or at least sub-human. In North Pakistan some time ago there was a debate: Has a non-Muslim half the value of a Muslim or less?

591 3/110b: “Ye (Muslims*) are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind - - -”. If the Muslims were evolved for the good of mankind, they have been rather lazy the last 900 years - the culture stagnated around 1100 AD, and after that nothing which could benefit mankind came from Muslims (and much/most of what came before, came not because of Islam, but in spite of Islam.

592 3/110c: "- - - right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

593 3/110d: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

594 3/110e: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians, and Sabeans. The last ones are not often mentioned, but most likely were the inhabitants of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (approximately Yemen today) - mainly Christians. (Though Muslims often claim it was a Christian sect in what is now Iraq - it still exists, but very small - or a monotheistic sect in Arabia). Also see 2/62f above.

595 3/110f: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

596 3/110g: "If only the People of the Book (see 3/110e above*) had faith - - -". As said several places only Islam is faith in the Quran - Jews and Christians do not believe in the Quran, and thus do not have faith.

597 3/110h: "If only the People of the Book (see 3/110e above*) had faith - - -". Contradicted by the Bible: According to the Bible it is the true believers in the Bible who have faith. 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.

598 3/110i: "- - - among them (Jews and Christians*) are some who have faith - - -". Similar are indicated a few places in the Quran. It is not quite clear whether he refers to some of them accepting Islam, or of he meant also honestly and strongly believing Jews and Christians could be accepted by Allah. Our impression is that he at least in the early years of Islam thought that also Jews and Christians could go to Paradise if they were good persons and honest believers.

599 3/110j: “Most of them (Jews and Christians*) are perverted transgressors.” Yes, one has to be perverted to believe in the god of the old - a god who according to their holy book has manifested his power many times - and in a book backed by thousands of witnesses at least from the times of Moses till the times of Jesus (though in both these cases something or details may be wrong), compared to believe in a medium large businessman liking power and respect - and women - and who in addition is a highway man, extorter, womanizer, rapist, torturer, enslaver, slave dealer (selling or giving away for bribes his 20% of the slaves taken), assassin, murder, mass murderer, believer of al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth) (even thought these two kinds of dishonesty only was formalized later), deceiving ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is jihad),breaker of his words and oaths (f.x. murdering 29 men from Khaybar he had guaranteed safety during peace talks), even a few places clearly lying in the Quran, and an inciter to hate, discrimination and war - but in no way able to do more than to tell unproved tales backed by invalid and even wrong “signs” and “proofs” - tales which on top of all show a number of the hallmarks of a swindler, cheater and deceiver. (Muslims: This is no slander - these facts are taken from Islam’s own books telling about and praising Muhammad - it only lacks the sugar coat of explaining away and heroism. There is no reason of being angry when meeting the very plain truth from your own books. When glorious words and reality disagree, we always believe in reality).

Yes, Jews, Christians and for that case Pagans have to be perverted not to believe on basis of such - unproved - words from such a man. And for not to kill and steal/rob and terrorize on his orders. Is it possible to add: - those perverted transgressors may deserve suppression and extermination - at least sometimes?

How would Muslims around the world react if some ones in big media claimed that most Muslims are perverted transgressors? - and how would different countries' judicial systems react to it? This in spite of that some of the moral and judicial rules in the Quran are perverse - f.x. the permission to rape female prisoners of war and slaves, included children, at least down to 9 years.

##600 3/110k: "- - - perverted transgressors". Normally in the Quran this is a name for non-Muslims. It carries a heavily negative picture of non-Muslims, and is part of the reason why many Muslims are negative to integration in non-Muslim societies - who wants to mingle or be associated with that bad people? (If this had been a novel and not a "holy" book, in most civilized countries the Quran had been prohibited because of discriminating contents and its incitements to discrimination, hate and blood. But then Islam is a religion who preaches discrimination - Muslims shall be the top and all others suppressed and "paying jizya (extra tax) with willing submission" - and Islam is too strong, so that prohibition of the book is impossible, in spite of points of view like this in it.) The claim: "Islam is the Religion of Peace" is an insult to the intelligence of anyone who has read the Quran with an open mind.

##601 3/111a: "They (non-Muslims*) will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance, if they come out to fight you, they will show you their backs, and no help will they get”. The Quran's insistence on and romanizing of war, is one of the really strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are two different gods (if they exist). Especially the contrast to NT and its new covenance (= the teachings of Jesus) is staggering.

602 3/111b: "They (non-Muslims*) will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance, if they come out to fight you - - -". Pep-talk: Non-Muslims are no good warriors - do not be afraid when fighting them.

*603 3/111c: “- - - if they (the People of the Book = mainly Jews and Christians*) come out to fight you, they will show you their backs, and no help will they get”. Pep talk for warriors. Far from always true as history has shown and shows.

604 3/112a: "- - - the wrath of Allah - - -". If he exists and if he is something similar to what the Quran claims.

605 3/112b: Short words: Jews and Christians are to be detested.

606 3/112c: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

607 3/112d: "- - - slew the Prophets - - -". Read the Bible - how many prophets of Yahweh did the Jews in reality slew? Except for Jesus not many.

608 3/112e: "- - - slew the Prophets in defiance of right - - -". Was there ever a time or a place where it was right to slay real prophets?

609 3/112f: "- - - in defiance of right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

610 3/113a: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians, and Sabeans. The last ones are not often mentioned, but most likely were the inhabitants of Saba/Sabah/Sheba (approximately Yemen today) - mainly Christians. (Though Muslims often claim it was a Christian sect in what is now Iraq - it still exists, but very small - or a monotheistic sect in Arabia).

611 3/113b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

612 3/113c: "- - - stand (for the right) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

613 3/113d: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) rehearse the Signs of Allah - - -". No comment necessary.

614 3/113e: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

615 3/113f: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) prostrate themselves - - -". Wrong. At least Christians do not use prostration.

616 3/113g: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) prostrate themselves in adoration". Wrong. None of "the People of the Book" adore Allah. They simply do not believe he exists, and definitely not as a god. (Though many do not know the Quran better than they believe Muslims are speaking the truth when Islam claims Yahweh and Allah is the same god - but that Muhammad/the Quran has twisted the god's teaching).

617 3/114a: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) believe in Allah". No comment necessary.(Even in the cases where they have used the name Allah instead of God or Yahweh, they definitely have not believed in the Islamic Allah).

618 3/114b: "- - - right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

619 3/114c: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

620 3/114d: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) are in the ranks of the righteous". for once the Quran may well be right. But normally when words like "righteous" is used in the Quran, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

621 3/115a: "Of the good they (Jews and Christians gone Muslims or at least nearly so*) do, nothing will be rejected of them - - -". = All good deeds will be remembered on the Day of Doom - - - if the Quran can be relied on.

622 3/115b: "- - - good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

623 3/115c: "- - - Allah knoweth well those who do right". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

624 3/115d: "- - - right". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

625 3/116a: "Those who reject Faith - - -". = Non-Muslims - one of Muhammad's many negative (in the ears of Muslims*) names for them.

626 3/116b: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam - only Muslims have faith according to the Quran.

627 3/116c: "Those who reject Faith (Islam*) - - - will be Companions of the Fire - - -". Contradicted to say the least of it by the Bible, at least regarding Jews and Christians. 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.

628 3/116d: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". = They who will end in Hell.

630 3/116f: "- - - dwelling therein (Hell*) (for ever)". There are some verses in the Quean which may indicate that Hell is not quite forever - at least not for Muslims who have not been good enough Muslims to end in Paradise originally. See 6/128c, 11/107b, 43/74d, 51/13c, and 78/23. (And 11/108c indicates that may be also Paradise is not quite forever.

631 3/117a: "- - - A Wind which brings a nipping frost: It strikes and destroys the harvest of men who have wronged their own souls - - -." Muhammad does not seem to know much about frost and it’s (in)ability to choose between good and bad men.

632 3/117b: "- - - they (Jews, Christians*) wrong themselves". Only if Allah exists and Yahweh not - and only if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth about this. And not least: Not if Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims many places.

633 3/117c: "- - - they (Jews, Christians*) wrong themselves". It should be unnecessary to mention that this is strongly contradicted by the Bible. And we remind you that both science and Islam thoroughly have proved that the Bible is not falsified in spite of the Quran's never documented claims. 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.

634 3/118a: "- - - ye who believe!" = Muslims - in the Quran only Muslims believe.

635 3/118b: "Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks - - -". = Do not make friends with non-Muslims. No comments necessary.

636 3/118c: “- - - they (non-Muslims*) will not fail to corrupt you (Muslims*)”. No good people. But the exact text says (translated from Swedish): “- - - they love all that can distress you - - -.” And that is not the same meaning by far. There is a significant difference between "to corrupt" and "enjoy your distress". All the same: Detestable people.

637 3/118d: “They (non-Muslims*) only desire your (Muslims*) ruin - - -”. Even if it is not true: There is a good reason for despising such people according to the Quran. A good reason not to associate with them and keep a distance to them - and not believe what they say. Effect: Little information which could correct Muhammad's claims - and less resistance against making wars against these bad people.

638 3/118e: “- - - rank hatred (of Muslims*) has already appeared from their (non-Muslims') mouths - - -”. Even if this may be true for only a few of them: Is it possible to find worse human beings? - if they really are real humans? At least do not believe anything they tell you which can influence your belief in Muhammad and Islam. Good psychology if a leader wants to keep correcting information away from his followers - not to mention if he wants to attack the claimed bad ones - to attack vermin is a good deed.

639 3/118f: “- - - what their (non-Muslims*) hearts conceal is far worse (than rank hatred against Muslims*) - - -”. True or not; worse creatures than non-Muslims is not possible to find - according to the Quran. Not good propaganda for integration. But good for inducing detesting and superiority feeling - a starting point for hate and war and suppression.

640 3/118g: “We (Allah*) have made plain to you the Signs - - -”. Wrong. The only thing that is made plain about the so called signs is that at least the ones not “borrowed” from the Bible without exception are just lose statements and cheap words any priest and any believing man or woman can use about any god in any religion - real or imagined.

What does it tell about the Quran and about Muhammad that loose statements and as loose claims are pretended to be facts and proofs? After all that kind of argumentation is one of the hallmarks for cheaters, deceivers and swindlers. The same goes for fast talk - you find also that in the Quran. Not to mention a few clear lies (like the statements that miracles/real proofs for Allah/Muhammad's connection to a god would make no one believe anyhow).

641 3/118h: "- - - if ye have wisdom". A psychologically well chosen claim - who wants to admit or be accused of not having wisdom? See 13/3j below

642 3/118i: "- - - wisdom - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally only refers to "wisdom" and knowledge related to Islam.

643 3/118j: This verse as a whole is representative for parts of the Quran's propaganda against non-Muslims. It also is typical and representative for many other extreme sects wanting to insulate their members from the surroundings and thus from correcting information, and for militant sects wanting to create distance between "us" and "them" in order to prepare the followers for aggression - also within f.x. political extremes. F.x. the militant parts of communism and fascism/Nazism in some cases were nearly as extreme as the harsh parts of the Quran. (Islam has - with a reason - been compared to fascism and Nazism. F.x. by the renown psychologist Young).

644 3/119a: "Ye (Muslims*) are those who love them (Non-Muslims*) - - -". Absolutely no comments necessary, except see 1/1a above and 9/5 below. Islam hardly is a religion of love.

645 3/119b: "- - - ye (Muslims*) believe in the whole of the Book (the Quran*)". Implication: Jews and Christians have falsified the copies their forefathers received of the Quran (sic!) and now have only parts of it left in which they believe - and the rest they believe in, Muhammad claims they had made up (an allegation and a never proved one - and a claim both science and Islam long since have proved wrong by being unable to find any falsification among literally tens of thousands of relevant old manuscripts).

646 3/119c: “- - - they bite off their very fingertips at you in rage (if you are lucky in some way or other*)”. Despicable people - true or not do not matter very much, as long as the followers believe it. And also pep-talk.

647 3/119d: "Allah knoweth well all the secret of the heart". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

648 3/120a: “If aught that is good befalls you (Muslims*), it grieves them (non-Muslims*) - - -”. Unkind fellows.

649 3/120b: “- - - but if some misfortune overtakes you (Muslims*), they (non-Muslims*) rejoice at it”. There is a good reason to dislike them - or worse.

650 3/120c: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

651 3/120d: "- - - Allah compasseth round about all that they (non-Muslims*) do". = Allah sees and knows everything. Also see 2/233h above.

652 3/120e: This verse is one of many in the Quran painting non-Muslims very black and inducing distaste and worse against them. Fertilizer for the cultivation of the strong fascism and war rhetoric in the surahs from Medina.

653 3/121a: "- - - to post the Faithful at their stations for battle - - -". This refers to the battle of Uhud.

654 3/121b: "- - - to post the Faithful at their stations for battle - - -". This refers to the battle of Uhud and is a clear historical anomaly - no-one reading copies of the claimed "Mother Book" in the older times, would understand a reference like this, until after the battle had taken place. See 4/13d below.

655 3/121c: "- - - to post the Faithful at their stations for battle - - -". Try to find something like this in NT! - it does not exist. Jesus a prophet like Muhammad (claimed to be)? - believe it if you are able to.

656 3/121d: "- - - the Faithful - - -". = The Muslims.

657 3/121e: "- - - to post the Faithful at their stations for battle - - -". This is so far from the NT that it is not even a contradiction to NT - you will need a much stronger word. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Guess three times!

658 3/121f: "- - - Allah heareth and knoweth all things - - -". See 2/233h above.

659 3/121-127: The religion of peace? - the god of peace? As mentioned other places, these claims is an insult to the intelligence of anyone who has ever read the complete Quran - or at least the surahs from Medina - with an open mind.

660 3/122a: “Remember two of your parties (from the clan Banu Salamah of the tribe Al-Aws, and from the clan Harithah of the tribe Khazraj*) mediated cowardice (just before the battle of Uhud in 625 AD they wanted to leave*); but Allah was their protector, and in Allah should the Faithful (ever) put their trust”. A mighty example and pep-talk forever after. (That these parts after all did not desert Muhammad before the battle, might have meant the difference between a battle the Muslims in reality lost, but at a price which made Mecca withdraw, and a military catastrophe.)

661 3/122b: “Remember two of your parties mediated cowardice (just before the battle of Uhud in 625 AD they wanted to leave*) - - -". A typical historical anomaly - nobody reading a copy of "the Mother Book" (= similar to the Quran) before this happened, could understand this reference. Also see 4/13d above.

662 3/122c: “Remember two of your parties mediated cowardice (just before the battle of Uhud in 625 AD they wanted to leave*) - - -". Neither the cowardice nor the wish to leave could be reliably foreseen unless predestination was/is total - if man had partly or full free will, he could change his mind + someone could have changed his mind earlier so that f.x. the two groups did not meet at all. 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, 43/4BBb+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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

663 3/122d: "- - - cowardice - - -". This is what Muhammad called it.

664 3/122e: "- - - Allah was their (see 3/122a above*) protector - - -". One of the very many never documented claims in the Quran. It is untrue unless Allah exists, is a god and is reasonably correct described in the Quran.

665 3/122f: "- - - in Allah should the Faithful (ever) put their trust". A doubtful advice if the Quran - and thus Allah - is made up (and at least it is from no god - far too many errors, etc.).

666 3/122g: "- - - the Faithful - - -". = The Muslims.

667 3/123a: “Allah helped you at Badr - - -”. This was a battle against the Meccans which the Muslims won, in spite of being outnumbered 3 : 1 (according to Muslim sources - there are no others). Muhammad told they won because Allah had sent down (3ooo) angels who fought together with the Muslims (a rather primitive way to do things for an omnipotent god). Pep talk - he helped you then, we believe, and it is likely he will help you in other battles, too. But: Why does an omnipotent god have to bring his followers to war to strengthen his position? If it was Muhammad who wanted more power and more riches to use for bribes and more power - and women - the logic is easy to understand, but an omniscient god - - -?

668 3/123b: “Allah helped you at Badr - - -”. A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

669 3/123c: "- - - fear Allah - - -". See 3/122c above.

670 3/124a: "- - - the Faithful - - -". = The Muslims

671 3/124b: “Is it not enough for you (Muslims in battle*) that Allah should help you with three thousand angles (specially) sent down?” Pep talk to warriors referring to the battle of Badr, which Muhammad claimed was won because Allah sent down 3ooo angels who fought together with the Muslims - Allah helps you in battle with angle warriors. Morals counts in battle, and battle was essential for Muhammad at this time, though in 625 AD he might also think about defense against Mecca - they might again attack to stop his robbing their caravans, etc. But except for real defense: Why does an omnipotent god have to bring his followers to war to strengthen his position? If it was Muhammad who wanted more power and more riches to use for bribes and more power - and women - the logic is easy to understand, but an omniscient god - - -?

672 3/124c: "- - - three thousand angels (specially) sent down - - -". Remember this sentence (and other sentences in the Quran) each time Muhammad - and others - claim Allah could not send down an angel or two to prove Muhammad's claims about representing a god, or even the claimed god's very existence, because that would have meant the Day of Doom had arrived.

673 3/125a: “Yea – if you remain firm - - - your Lord (Allah*) would help you with five thousand angels making a terrific onslaughter”. Go to war in the secure knowledge that Allah sends large battalions of soldiering angels fighting beside you. It is not explained why an omnipotent god had/has to send angles and by the thousands to strain your enemy’s forces to give you a better chance to win. But a mighty pep-talk for believers – especially the uneducated and/or naïve ones. But again: Why does an omnipotent god have to bring his followers to war to strengthen his position? If it was Muhammad who wanted more power and more riches to use for bribes and more power and women, the logic is easy to understand, but an omniscient god - - -?

674 3/125b: “Yea – if you remain firm - - - your Lord (Allah*) would help you with five thousand angels making a terrific onslaughter”. This is not from the Bible, and you also find nothing similar anywhere in that book, not even in the more warlike OT, where the Jews should and had to fight to get a country for themselves, and later to defend it. If Yahweh and Allah had been the same god, this had meant that the god suddenly had got a new idea: Send the angels to take part in battles on Earth. A likely idea?

The fact that no Jewish prophet ever told the same kind of story, also is one more proof tor that Muhammad was not in such a line of prophets - if he had been a prophet. His teaching also on points like this, was very different from the teaching of the Jewish prophets, and thus not in their line or tradition.

675 3/125c: "- - - if you (Muslims*) remain firm - - -". Time and again and again the Quran tells that if the Muslims just persevere, the "enemy" grows tired in the end and the Muslims win. Far too often this has proved correct, a fact all non-Muslims growing tired should remember. This especially the democracies, as they have problems when a fight lasts for a long time - there always are many voices wanting out of the struggle, as they see the short-time gain but not the long-time loss possible.

676 3/125d: "- - - act aright - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

677 3/125e: “- - - your (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah) would help you with five thousand angles (specially) sent down?” Pep talk. See 3/124a-c above.

678 3/125f: "- - - five thousand angels (sent down*) - - -". Remember this sentence (and other sentences in the Quran) each time Muhammad - and others - claim Allah could not send down an angel or two to prove Muhammad's claims about representing a god, or even the claimed god's very existence, because that would mean the Day of Doom had arrived.

###679 3/126a: "Allah made it (the Quran/Islam*) but a message of hope - - -". Allah has not made it unless he exists. And even if he exists, he has not sent it - it is an insult, slander and heresy to accuse a god of being involved in a book with so many mistakes and other errors like the Quran.

680 3/126b: "- - - a message - - -". Is the Quran really a message? - and in case from whom or what, as no god was involved in a book of such quality? Dark forces? A sick brain? a Cold brain?

681 3/126c: "- - - there is no help except from Allah - - -". In all history there is not one single documented case of help from Allah to anyone. Not one. Claims and legends, but that is it.

682 3/126d: "- - - there is no help except from Allah - - -". To say the least of it: Contradicted by the Bible (and a lot of other religions). 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.

###683 3/126e: "- - - Allah, the Exalted - - -". Read the Quran like it ought to be read if you want to find the reality behind the religion: First you arrange the surahs according to age, so that you see the development of the religion, and especially the big change in the god and the religion around 622-624 AD from a rather peaceful religion to a full-fledged war religion, included dishonesty, apartheid, suppression and blood. Further you skip the glorifying cheap words, and read what is demanded, what rules are introduced or glorified, what is done, etc. - in other words the realities, not the propaganda. Is Allah - if he exists - really exalted? And for that case what about Muhammad and about Islam?

684 3/126f: "- - - Allah - - - the Wise". Not if he made the Quran - too many wrong facts and other errors, contradictions, cases of invalid logic and unclear language, etc.

685 3/127a: "- - - He (Allah*) might cut off a fringe of the Unbelievers to expose them to infamy, and then they should be turned back, frustrated in their purpose". Pep-talk for war/fighting.

686 3/127b: "- - - He (Allah*) might cut off a fringe of the Unbelievers to expose them to infamy, and then they should be turned back, frustrated in their purpose". Compare this to "turn the other cheek". Yahweh and Allah the same god? You bet!

687 3/127c: "- - - He (Allah*) might cut off a fringe of the Unbelievers to expose them to infamy - - -". The religion of peace? - the god of peace?

688 3/127d: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". = One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

689 3/128a: "Not for thee (Muhammad/Muslims*), (but for Allah), is the decision: Whether He turn in mercy to them (the ones opposing Allah*), or punish them - - -". This was in 625 AD. Later when the Muslims grew military stronger, Muhammad - and his successors - decided whom to "punish". And they really "punished" many.

690 3/128b: "- - -they (non-Muslims*) are indeed wrong-doers". Detestable people - they deserve being robbed and enslaved and killed!

691 3/128c: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

692 3/128d: "- - - wrong-doers". In the Quran this normally is a name for non-Muslims, here extra juicy as Muhammad talks about non-Muslims actively opposing Islam.

693 3/129a: "To Allah belongeth all that is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth". One of the very many not documented claims in the Quran - claims any believer can make free of charge on behalf of his/her god(s) as long as proving it can be evaded. The truth in the claim also will be influenced by whether Allah exists or not, and if in case he exists, if the Quran has told the full and only truth about him. It also is contradicted by the Bible, where another god - Yahweh - is told is the only real god. 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.

694 3/129b: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – there are no 7 heavens. See 2/22d.

***695 3/129c: "He (Allah*) forgiveth whom He pleaseth - - -". Here is one of the really deep differences between the Quran and NT: Allah forgives whom he pleases, whereas Yahweh according to the Bible forgives each and everyone who honestly regrets and tries to live a better life. The same god? It is not even a silly question.

696 3/129d: "- - - (Allah*) punisheth whom He pleaseth - - -". Similar to 3/129c just above.

697 3/129e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

698 3/130a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran.

699 3/130b: "Devour not usury - - -". This is a positive side of the Quran. The problem is that Muhammad never explained what usury is - f.x. in connection to interest. A result of this is that Muslims cannot take interest on money they lend to someone, as to be on the safe side all interest is reckoned to be usury - very illogic; if you by something with the money (f.x. a house) and rent it to someone, you can take rent for it. Money you lend to someone, simply is something of a certain value you rent to someone. But not in Islam. Because of this there have been all kinds of "circumambulating" this rule - formally correct, in reality dishonesty towards the rule - - - a school and a training in dishonesty.

700 3/130c: "- - - that ye (Muslims*) may (really) prosper". It is unclear what this really means - in this life or in the next? And in case it refers to this life: Good economy or in other ways (In case it means good economy in this life, this was and is not the case for many a Muslim).

701 3/131a: "Fear the Fire, which is prepared for those who reject Faith - - -". See 3/77b above.

702 3/131b: "Fear the Fire, which is prepared for those who reject Faith - - -". Contradicted by the Bible. 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.

703 3/131c: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.</>

704 3/131d: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

705 3/132a: "And obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra for gluing himself to his platform of power, Allah.

706 3/132b: "And obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible - especially NT contradicts any war religion. 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./p>

707 3/132c: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

708 3/132d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

709 3/132e: "- - - obtain Mercy (from Allah*)." Impossible unless Allah exists.

710 3/133a: "- - - forgiveness from your Lord (Allah*) - - -". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and in addition is a god. There is no clear indication - not to mention proof - for any of those two necessities.

711 3/133b: "- - - a Garden - - -". Paradise.

712 3/133c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – see 2/22d.

713 3/133d: "- - - the righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses such words, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

714 3/134a: "Those who spend (freely) - - - (are good*) - - - for Allah loves those who do good". Spend for helping others. Spend for forwarding the religion. Spend for warfare.

715 3/134b: "- - - pardon all men - - -". This very clearly was forgotten - and abrogated - later.

716 3/134c: "- - - Allah loves those who do good - - -". If he exists - - - and if a war god really likes really good deeds - "do onto others like you want others do onto you".

717 3/134d: "- - - those who do good - - -". Good Muslims.

718 3/134e: "- - - do good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses such words, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best of deeds in the Quran is to go to war and steal and rape and suppress and kill in the name of Allah.

719 3/135a: "- - - wronged their own souls - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

720 3/135b: "- - - who can forgive sins - - -?". On Earth the ones sinned against can forgive. But here it obviously is meant a higher level, and then it only is a god or whom he has given the right to do so, which can be the answer. But there must be made an addition: Only gods who really exist can do so - and it is highly unlikely that Allah exists and is a god, as he only appears in a book full of mistakes and other errors and a book obviously not from any god, dictated by a man of highly dubious morality. Gods from fairy tales do not count in this connection.

721 3/135c: "- - - who can forgive sins except Allah - - -?". Yahweh according to the Bible.

722 3/135d: "- - - (the wrong) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses such words, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best of deeds in the Quran is to go to war and steal and rape and suppress and kill in the name of Allah - and one of the worst wrongs you can do, is to refuse to do this.

723 3/136a: "- - - forgiveness from their (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". Only 2 can forgive: The victim and a god. Thus Allah can forgive only if he exists and if he in addition is a god.

724 3/136b: "- - - Gardens - - -". The Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f below.

725 3/136c: "Gardens with rivers flowing underneath - - -". One of the characteristics with the Quran's paradise, is that it is made according to desert dwellers' dreams - plenty of water, shade, cool air, etc. This simply is the most frequently used Arabism ((see 4/13d below) in the Quran. But what god for all the Earth forms his paradise according to only one group's dreams? - primitive dreams even. Actually this is the most frequently used Arabisms in the Quran.

726 3/136d: "- - - (Paradise is) an eternal dwelling - - -". 11/108c tells that may be the Quran's and Islam's paradise is not quite forever. Muslims explain this with that this in case means the "inmates" will be transferred to an even better place (not too difficult - this paradise mainly is bodily pleasures), but this you do not find in the Quran.

727 3/136e: "- - - how excellent a recompense (Paradise*) is for those who work (and strive) (good Muslims*)!" If Allah exists. If he is behind what Muhammad told. And if what Muhammad told in the Quran is the full and only truth about this. One should also remember that the Islamic Paradise mainly offers bodily satisfaction and luxury - not very inventive for an omniscient god (in the Bible it is told the Christians will become like angels - f.x. Matt. 22/30).

*728 3/137a: “- - - travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected the Truth”. In Arabia there were scattered old ruins - another Arabism (see 4/13d below). Muhammad told they were all remnants after peoples Allah had punished for their sins. There are more likely explanations. (Some time ago in Pakistan Muslim groups wanted to place placards in some ruins telling that these were from people punished by Allah, and that this was how Allah punished a people for sins. Western media referred the story without comments - something they sometimes do when the stupidity is so obvious that even morons see it without explanations.

729 3/137b: “- - - those who rejected the Truth”. One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

730 3/137c: "- - - the Truth (the Quran*)". With that many mistaken facts in the Quran, it at best tells partly the truth. Also see 13/1g and 40/75 below.

731 3/137d: "- - - the Truth (the Quran*)". Contradicted by the Bible and on many points also by facts and by science. 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.

732 3/138a: "Here is a plain statement to men - - -". The interesting point concerning a statement like this, is not if it is plain, but if it is true. How can one without any proof relay on a statement built on nothing but loose words, and made by a very doubtful man - and made in a book full of mistakes, etc.?

But this statement also has relevance for all the claims Muslims make about all the points in the Quran they claim are not wrong - which the literal meaning is in those cases - but analogies. The Quran itself contradicts such claims by stating several laces that the text is plain and easy to understand.

733 3/138b: "Here (in the Quran*) is - - - a guidance - - -." No. Too many mistakes, etc.

734 3/138c: "Here (in the Quran*) is - - - a guidance and instruction to those who fear Allah". And a central instruction is: "Wage war for Allah and for Muhammad".

###735 3/139a: "- - - ye (Muslims*) must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith." No comments. Except: The declared goal for Islam is world dominance and suppression of all non-Muslims.

736 3/139b: "- - - Faith". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

737 3/140a: “If a wound hath touched you (Muslim warrior*), be sure a similar wound hath touched the others (the enemy*)”. Pep-talk. Keep the warriors bent on fighting on. A peaceful religion. Very different from especially NT.

738 3/140b: "Such days (of varying fortunes) We (Allah*) give to men and men by turns". A wise warlord prepares his warriors also for the lost skirmishes, and imprints that next time it is your turn to win.

739 3/140c: "- - - (so*) that Allah may know those that believe - - -". Why, why, and once more why: Why this "testing" and war if Allah is omniscient? - and even more so if he predestines absolutely everything according to his Plan like the Quran claims many places? There is no meaning in this sentence. But it gets a meaning if it was Muhammad who wanted warriors and needed an explanation for why there were ups and downs.

740 3/140d: "- - - (to Truth)". See 2/2a above.

741 3/140e: "- - - (- - - Truth)". Contradicted by the Bible - see 2/42c above. 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.

742 3/140f: "And Allah loveth not those that do wrong". Does this also include those who live according to the immoral parts of the Qurans moral code? (For comparison: The fundamental moral imperative is: "Do onto others like you want others do onto you".)

743 3/140g: "- - - do wrong." Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

744 3/141a: “Allah’s object also is to purge those that are true in Faith and to deprive of blessing those that resist Faith.” An answer to the obvious question: Why do Muslims have to wage war and risk their lives, when Allah just could say “Be” and it was? But the answer above is not a good one - an omniscient god had known or fixed everything without mass slaughtering. But Muhammad had not gained power and riches without war, if Allah does not exist or for other reasons was not behind him. A possible explanation at least, for why war was “necessary”. But made invalid by the fact that Allah easily could purge his followers in not bloody and not fundamentally immoral ways. (Job f.x. was tried and purged more than any normal human, without himself doing wrong to anybody.)

But if this was Muhammad needing an explanation why he wanted war and claims this, suddenly the words have a meaning.

745 3/141b: "- - - those who are true in Faith - - -". Muslims.

746 3/141c: "- - - those that resist Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

747 3/141d: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

748 3/142a: “Did ye think that ye would enter Heaven without Allah testing those of you who fought hard (in His cause) and remained steadfast?” You can come to heaven without being a warrior. But for one thing it is much easier for warriors – and a sure way if you are killed – and for another thing; if you were a brave warrior in this life, you ended in the best parts of Paradise with most luxury, plenty of women (Islam is mainly occupied with men) – and closer to Allah. Mighty incitements. But why does an omniscient god have to test his followers to find out what they are worth? - and even more so if he predestines everything, like the Quran claims many places?

749 3/142b: “Did you think ye would enter Heaven without Allah testing those who fought hard (in His Cause) and remained steadfast?” But the literal meaning of the original text is: “- - - while Allah has not yet taken cognizance of those of you who have striven - - - and those who are patient in adversity.” Islam explains that as Allah knows everything, this in reality means that nothing – no real test – has taken place. But if Allah is omniscient, there does not exist one single reason for a test of anybody - especially so if he also predestines everything, like the Quran claims many places. And if Allah does not know how each and everybody will behave, he is not omniscient and clairvoyant. Islam’s explanation here is logically invalid. Do they have something better – not the (sorry) usual stuff where they “explain” one piece of a complex question, and then tell “this is why” – and silently skip the other parts of the complex, which shows that the claim(s) or "explanation(s)" in reality is/are wrong or invalid? – there is too much of that in Islam.

750 3/142c: "- - - (in His (Allah's*) Cause - - -". As the Quran with all its errors is not from any god, it is a very open question the raids and wars were and are in Allah's cause.

751 3/142d: "- - - steadfast - - -". A word with a similar meaning like "patiently persevere" - an expression non-Muslims should never forget is impressed and impressed on its followers by the Quran: Keep going, and sooner or later your enemy tires and give in, and you win. It has proved true too often.

752 3/143: "- - - now ye (Muslims*) have seen him (death*) with your own eyes - - -". This refers to the battle of Uhud, where many met or at least saw death. The real meaning of this verse is unclear, though - like so many in the Quran - and Muslim scholars still debate this. (There are at least 3 possible meanings according to f.x. A3/103).

753 3/144a: "Muhammad is no more than a Messenger - - -". Sentences like this is the only reason why Muhammad is not a saint in Islam - divinity would be impossible, but sainthood they would be able to find an opening for, if it was not for sentences like this. It also is one of Muhammad's ways of explaining away questions for miracles as proofs for Allah or for his own connection to a god.

754 3/144b: "Muhammad is no more than a Messenger - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

755 3/144c: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

756 3/144d: "- - - many were the Messengers that passed away before him (Muhammad*)". The Quran claims that all societies through all times have been sent prophets teaching Islam - Hadiths mention the number 124ooo. Neither science nor Islam have been able to find any trace of such prophets or such a religion (except in the Bible, but those prophets preached about another religion and another god - Yahweh - a god Islam wrongly and without proofs claims is the same god as Allah, but the fundamentals of the teachings are too different for this to be true).

We may add that if we compare this number with the time perspective in the Bible - on which also Islam here rests as the Quran builds on the same persons in the old times - this perspective is some 6ooo-7ooo years. Which in case means some Allah according to the Quran sent prophets/messengers for some 5ooo years up to the claimed last one Muhammad. Which again means some 24 new prophets a year - 2 a month. And not one of them except a few Jewish ones left a trace at all. Believe it if you are able to.

If we instead use the scientific perspective and say that Allah's sending of prophets/messengers started when Homo Sapiens started, we still end up with some 60 - 80 a century. (Homo Sapiens developed some 160ooo-200ooo years ago - one has a small preference for ca. 195ooo years ago. If we use this number, we end up with some 2 every 3 years - ca. 1 every 18 months. And not one leaving a trace except the few mentioned Jewish ones. (Why only the Jewish ones by the way, if Allah sent to all nations and cultures and people all over and to all times?

757 3/144e: "- - - Allah - - - would swiftly reward those who (served Him) with gratitude". If he exists. If he in addition is a god. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth on this point.

758 3/145a: “Nor can a soul die except by Allah’s leave - - -". One of the many, many never documented claims in the Quran. Muhammad never was able to prove anything at all about his claimed god or his own claimed connection to him.

###759 3/145b: “Nor can a soul die except by Allah’s leave, the term being fixed as by writing”. Wage war - you die when your term comes and not before, no matter what you are doing. The for Muhammad most essential side of predestination? It is easy by means of statistics to show the claim is wrong, but right or wrong does not matter much in cases of blind belief. But one thing is clear: Any man as intelligent as Muhammad did know this was a lie.

####760 3/145c: "- - - the term being fixed as by writing”. Everything is predestined by Allah and in accordance with his unchangeable Plan - also your death. By the way: As Allah's Plan is impossible to change, there is no use praying to him, as what is predestined cannot be changed. This is one of the Quran's basic contradictions in the Quran and in Islam: Allah predestines everything long time beforehand - according to Hadiths f.x. your destination in the claimed next life (Hell or Heaven) is predestined 5 months before you are even born - and according to an unchangeable Plan. But all the same you should pray to Allah for a better life and for acceptance to paradise, etc. etc. Where is the logic? If everything is predestined, prayers can have absolutely no effect. And if prayers have effect and can change things, predestination and a divine Plan are not true. Predestination combined wit effect of prayers is as impossible as predestination combined with free will of man - even for a god. It is anybody's guess why Muslims do not see this.

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.)

761 3/145d: "- - - the term being fixed as by writing”. There is nothing similar in the Bible, in spite of that predestination is an essential point in the Quran. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Definitely not.

762 3/145e: There is an interesting short statement more here: “- as by writing”:

In the old times when most people did not know how to read and write, written text was looked upon with respect - that something was written for many naïve and uneducated poor souls meant it was a proof for that it was true. Just think about a priest starting to read from the Bible in a church; in many countries he starts with something like “It is written” - which to his audience in the old times simply meant: It is sure to be the truth. This may be an explanation why Muhammad and the Quran so often stress that his teaching is from a book or that it is written (today we know it means nothing whether something is written or not - there are as many fairy tales and as many lies in written as in spoken words).

763 3/145f: "If any do desire a reward in this life, We (Allah*) shall give it to him; and if any do desire a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give it to him (note: the Quran seldom speaks about women*)". This is a main explanation Muhammad used for why some not good people had a good life: They wanted the good things in this life - - - but they would not get a good existence in the next life.

764 3/145g: "If any do desire a reward in this life, We (Allah*) shall give it to him; and if any do desire a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give it to him (note: the Quran seldom speaks about women*)". But remember the old fact: Allah can give nobody anything unless he exists and is a real god - after all Muhammad just took the old pagan Arab god al-Lah, dressed him up, changed his name slightly and claimed without ever being able to prove a comma about it, that this was the mighty and all-powerful single god, and his own boss.

765 3/145h: "And swiftly shall We (Allah*)reward those who (serve Us with) gratitude". If he exists. If he is a god. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth on this point.

*766 3/146a: “How many of the Prophets fought (in Allah’s way) - - -". Exactly no-one of the known prophets from the Bible. The very few of the known ones of them who took part in fighting, fought for earthly reasons. None took part in a religious war. The wars you find in OT (there is none in NT) were political ones or punishment of the Jews from Yahweh. There were no wars to spread the mosaic religion, as contrast to "holy wars" - jihads - fought by Muslims.

*767 3/146b: “How many of the Prophets fought (in Allah’s way), and with them fought large bands of godly men? But they never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah’s way, nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in. And Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast.” A pep-talk to warriors of all times - never give in, never give up, retreat if you have to, but go on and you will win like the prophets, because Allah will help - - - and sooner or later the lover of religious warriors, Allah, will give you Paradise. Like in the Old Norse religion and other war religions.

As for prophets, Islam maintains that they have existed to all times and all places - Hadith mention the number 124ooo, but even that is just a symbol for uncountable many. (Using the religious time-scale = some 5ooo years up to Muhammad, gives 2 new prophets each and every month for those 5ooo years. Using the scientific time-scale = perhaps 195ooo years for Homo Sapiens, gives one new prophet every 18 months approximately. Believe it if you are able to.). This is not true, because it is not possible to find a single trace of monotheistic prophets (except the few in the Bible) anywhere or any time in any form - history, literature, art, architecture, archeology, or even in folk tales. It is not possible that so many prophets should leave not a single trace - especially the warring ones should leave traces, even if they had no success with spreading the religion.

And not many of the prophets we know about from other sources - mainly the Bible - did actually wage war. This picture becomes even more loop-sided when you remember the Bible mentions there were a number of prophets not named by name, and hardly any of these were leaders of wars - in that case they had been more central and named. (NB: The Bible does not reckon f. x. Saul and David - and not even Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob, not to mention Ishmael - primarily as prophets. Leaders, but the title prophet hardly is used - for a central person like Abraham in all the Bible the title prophet is mentioned only a couple of times. Saul, David, Ishmael and a number of others are not reckoned to be prophets at all in the Bible.) The fact that Biblical prophets normally did not wage war, compared to Muhammad's war religion, also is one of the clear indications for that Muhammad was not in the Biblical line of prophets.

768 3/146c: “And Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast (in battle*)”. Another mighty incitement to primitive warriors – and terrorists - with strong belief.

But Mr. Bush and others should have remembered this about being steadfast.

769 3/146d: “And Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast - - -". Only if he really exists. Made up gods love nobody.

770 3/147a: "Out (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*)! Forgive us our sins - - -". This Allah only can do if he is not a made up god in a made up book - and a book so full of all kinds of errors is not from any god.

771 3/147b: "Out (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*)! Forgive us our sins - - -". Even if Allah should happen to be a god, he cannot forgive if that is contra to his claimed predestined Plan - the prayer then is a waste of time and effort. And if he has predestined forgiving and put it into his Plan long ago, prayer is not necessary as forgiving already is decided. If predestination is true like the Quran claims many times, prayer never has an effect in Islam - a fact strongly contradicting the Quran's never documented claims.

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.)

772 3/147c: “- - - and help us against those that resist Faith”. Allah will help if you fight for Islam - or for Islamic leaders telling they defend Ummah and Islam. This is from 625 AD – the Medina period. It could have been meant as defensive help, but then one would have used “from”, not “against”. This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51a, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran". (At least 88 contradictions).

Psychologically a mighty incitement and a strength for upping the fighting spirit, especially with uneducated, primitive warriors or fanatics.

773 3/147d: "- - - those that resist Faith". One more of Muhammad's many to Muslims negative names for non-Muslims.

774 3/147e: " - - - Faith". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

775 3/148a: “And Allah gave them (the warriors) a reward in this world (and will consequently give it to you if you fight bravely*) and the excellent reward of the Hereafter”. 80% of the spoils of war - included slaves and women - were for the warriors and their leaders (the remaining 20% were for Allah/Muhammad/the religious leaders - which soon also became political leaders). Women made slaves were fun, because to rape female slaves was your right and no sin. In addition: To do battle for Islam was - and is - a “heavy” application for Paradise, and a sure way to get there no matter what kind of life you have led, if you are killed in battle for Islam (which soon also meant - and means - an easy way for the leaders to recruit warriors). But it is a strange fact that leaders never become suicide bombers.(The Quran tells that suicide is a sin deserving Hell (is this told - or "explained" away to the suicide bombers?) + perhaps the leaders do not like to die yet?)

776 3/148b: "- - - and the excellent reward of the Hereafter”. Well, we are back to the old fact: If Allah exists. If he is a god. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth on this point.

777 3/148c: “For Allah loveth those who do good - - -". Allah can love no-one unless he exists - and there is not one single proof, not even a clear indication, for his existence.

778 3/148d: “For Allah loveth those who do good (in this case: To wage war for Allah and Muhammad*)”. To do battle for Allah - to steal and burn and kill and murder and destroy and rape for the good and benevolent deity - is a good thing which Allah loves. (Actually that it shall be made in the name of the god, makes it even more disgusting.) Did anyone say that modern terrorists have to twist the words of the Quran to find incitements to their deeds? And also: Muhammad got cheap warriors and gained wealth and power - in wars and robberies that really were illegal according to the Quran, as they in reality were wars of aggression, not really of defense. And they gave him the possibility to rape at least two women - Rayhana bint Amr and Safijja bint Huayay.

779 3/148e: "- - - do good". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

780 3/149a: "- - - ye who believe!" = Muslims.

781 3/149b: “If ye (Muslims) obey the unbelievers, they will drive you back on your heals - - -”. No good. We may mention that there have been many cases of disturbance through the times because non-Muslims have got leading positions (Christians and even more so Jews often had better education than Muslims, who often concentrated on "Islamic sciences" - the religion and related knowledge - only) - the Muslims refused to have non-Muslim leaders they had to obey.

782 3/149c: "- - - ye (Muslims*) will be turned back (from Faith) to your own loss". This claim only is correct if Islam is a not made up religion, if it has a real god behind it, and if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth about this god and how he wants his religion - the religion of peace.

783 3/149d: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

784 3/150a: "- - - Allah is your Protector- - -". Once more: If he exists. If he really is a god. If he is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth on this point.

785 3/150b: "- - - and He (Allah*) is the best of helpers". There has not been one single case of documented help from Allah to anyone in all history - be sure Islam had told about it if such a proved case had existed.

786 3/150c: "- - - and He (Allah*) is the best of helpers". Strongly contradicted by the Bible. 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.

787 3/151a: “Soon shall We (Allah*) cast terror into the heart of the unbelievers - - -.” Of course. One more good pep-talk. And a bit different from "turn the other cheek" in the Bible.

788 3/151b: "- - - the unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

789 3/151c: "- - - joined companions (other gods*) with Allah". See 2/255a, 6/106b, and 25/18a below.

790 3/151d: "- - - for which He (Allah*) had sent no authority - - -". Allah can send authority for exactly nothing if he does not exist, and for little more than nothing if he exists, but is no major god, neither of which is proved (he only is the main figure in a book full of mistakes, etc., and based only on the words of a doubtful and proved - in the Quran and other central Islamic literature ("break even your oath if that gives a better result", lies - f.x. "miracles will make no-one believe anyhow" - used in the Quran, etc.) - unreliable man, liking respect, power, riches for bribes - and women.

791 3/151e: "- - - their (non-Muslims'*) abode will be the Fire". = They will go to Hell. Also see 3/77b above.

792 3/151f: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

#793 3/151g: "- - - evil is the home for wrongdoers." Much of the Quran's rules and moral and ethical code, not to mention rules for behavior in war, etc., most strongly sins against the "constitution" of all moral and ethical kinds of code: "Do unto others like you want others do onto you". Are Muslims thus wrongdoers heading for an "evil home" if there is a next life? This question is extra relevant as it is clear they live by a claimed holy book not produced by any god.

794 3/151h: "- - - wrongdoers". Normally in the Quran a name for non-Muslims - one of Muhammad's many negative such names.

795 3/152a: “Allah did indeed fulfill His promise to you - - -". In reality there is not documented one single case of Allah keeping his word about anything - yes, not even of giving his word. There are some claims, but only claims. Islam had told about it in big word if there had been even a single proved case anywhere and anytime.

796 3/152b: “Allah did indeed fulfill His promise to you when ye with His permission were about to annihilate your enemy - - -". Very far from the moral code of NT - you find nothing similar in all the NT. Yahweh and Allah the same god?. Hardly.

797 3/152c: “Allah did indeed fulfill His promise to you when ye with His permission were about to annihilate your enemy - until you flinched and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed it- - -”. This refers to the battle of Uhud - the second battle between the forces of Muhammad and Mecca - 5 km from Medina. In this battle the Meccans had greater forces, but it is a military truth that it is easier to defend than to attack - compare f.x. to Napoleon vs. Wellington’s inferior forces at Waterloo until Blücher and his Germans arrived, or Malta in 1565 - some 40ooo Muslim warriors vs. a little better than 1ooo defenders (+ some 8ooo locals taking some parts in the fighting), where the attackers had to withdraw after many weeks of battle (from May 18. to September 8.), and partly because of this lost the hegemony in the Mediterranean Sea. Or for that case Malta during WW2: Small British forces plus the locals vs. nominally hugely superior Italian and some German forces - but Malta never fell.

At Uhud Muhammad’s forces seemed to be winning. But the archers did want to get their parts of the spoils, and left their defending positions - - - and the battle turned. Politely said it ended in a draw (Muhammad in reality lost the battle), and Muhammad lost lots of men. It got no further serious consequences, though, as Mecca did not come back until much later, and then Medina and Muhammad were prepared (the Battle of the Trench, which Muhammad won - the last real battle with Mecca. Well, actually it was no real battle, just a siege, from which the Meccans had to withdraw in the end).

But in this case the lesson seemed to be: Allah kept his word as long as the warriors obeyed Muhammad - and Allah. When they stopped doing that, things went wrong. Or at least it was explained like this. Lesson: Allah keeps his words and Allah helps in battle, as long as you obey his - or really the religious (often the same as the political) leaders - orders. Terrorists and warriors: Obey Allah and your leaders = at that time Muhammad.

798 3/152d: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

799 3/152e: "- - - until you flinched and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed it- - -”. A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

800 3/152f: "- - - until you flinched and fell to disputing about the order, and disobeyed it- - -”. 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, 43/4BBb+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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

801 3/152g: "- - - until He (Allah*) brought you in sight (of the booty) which ye covet". In Islam stealing in what they call jihad - holy war - is no sin and part of the payment to the warriors. In NT stealing is an absolute "no". Strong contradiction of Islam's moral code on this point.

802 3/152h: "- - - to test you". In this case Muhammad is explaining away a human weakness with the claim that it was Allah's will. But why does an omniscient and predestining god need to test his followers? - actually the logic here is so hopeless, that it is an insult to the brain of the readers - only those can accept it who are very naive or mentally blind.

803 3/152i: "- - - He (Allah*) forgave you (Muslims*) - - -". As mentioned before, Allah can forgave nobody unless he exists and in addition is a god.

804 3/152j: "- - - Allah is full of grace to those who believe". Wrong - if this was true, he f.x. had not sent them into battles risking mutilation (hardly ever mentioned by Muhammad*) and death, not to mention moral destruction (accustom them to dishonesty, theft, inhumanities, killing, etc.) to "test" them for things any omniscient god knew long time before, and even more so if he on top of all predestined everything they said and did like the Quran states many places.

805 3/152k: "- - - those who believe". = Muslims.

806 3/152-155: This is from the battle of Uhud, where the Muslims were winning, but the archers were so greedy for booty that they left their positions and the battle turned. Muhammad lost this battle, but Mecca withdrew and the loss got no grave result for the Muslims.

807 3/153a: "Ye (Muslim warriors*) were climbing up the high ground, without even casting a side glance at anybody - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d above.

808 3/153b: "Ye (Muslim warriors*) were climbing up the high ground, without even casting a side glance at anybody - - -". 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, 43/4BBb+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.

Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

809 3/153c: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

810 3/153d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

811 3/153e: "There (at Uhud*) did Allah give you one distress after another by way of requital - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d above.

812 3/153f: "For Allah is well aware of all that ye do". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

813 3/154a: "After (the excitement) of the distress, He (Allah*) sent down calm - - -". This could not reliably be written in the claimed "mother book" until after the distressing situation had happened, and not after the persons had reacted with distress (f.x. instead of stronger reactions). 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, 43/4BBb+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.

Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

814 3/154b: "- - - He (Allah*) sent down calm on a band of you (Muslims warriors at Uhud*) - - -". A historical anomaly. This reference did not mean anything to any readers of copies of the claimed "mother book" - similar to the Quran - living before the battle of Uhud. Also see 4/13d below.

###815 3/154c: "- - - moved by wrong suspicions of Allah - suspicions due to ignorance". What then is right knowledge about Allah? The only source for claimed information about him, is a book full of mistakes, dictated by a very unreliable man liking power, riches for bribes, and women. If you go by known facts correcting all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran, it is highly unlikely he exists - and it is sure a book so full of mistakes, etc. is not from any god.

816 3/154d: "- - - suspicion due to ignorance - - -". In this case the honest explanation was greed - but what is quoted here fitted the religious claims better. And mainly the "suspicion" - read "disbelief" - at least the Jews and the few Christians in the area felt for Muhammad and his Allah, was based not on ignorance, but on the knowledge that the Bible told different - often very different - stories from what Muhammad claimed it told.

####817 3/154e: “Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death (anyhow*).” This is the "manifest" of predestination. And: This also is one of the points in the Quran where Muhammad knew he was lying. It is so obviously wrong, that an intelligent man like him knew this was not true. But he was a clever manipulator (“is it not more worth that I live among you, and spend the booty on the people not sure in their belief to make them stay in Islam?” f.x.) and he understood people. Lies like this worked because his followers were primitive and in addition wanted to believe. And for primitive, uneducated souls really believing mish-mash like this (it is easy to prove by statistics that it is untrue, if one are un-intelligent enough not to see at once that it is a lie) it was a mighty incitement – fighting in battles was not dangerous, because Allah had decided when you were to die, and at that time you would die whether you were in a battle or sleeping in your bed. It is worth noticing that even today this is the official point of view of Islam. To quote footnote 3/119 to this surah in “The Message of the Quran” (translated from the Swedish 2006 edition - not found in the English 2008 edition):

“(The) incorrect, heathen belief that humans by acting in special ways can avoid death (even for a time*)”.

Unbelievable!!

Today it as said is easy to prove by statistics that it is very wrong - but Muhammad did not know about statistics (and a god had not even needed statistics to know it was stupidity). On the other hand this claim is so contra all logic, that this as said is one of the points where Muhammad knew he was lying - he was too intelligent to believe in this. Actually Islam today back-pedals very much concerning predestination telling f.x. that the Quran does not mean real predestination (but not explaining what they claim it means). But in some cases the book is so clear, that it is impossible to explain it away.) f.x. many places connected to statements that when your time is out, you will die anyhow, and therefore you can as well go to war.

#818 3/154f “Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death (anyhow*).” According to this, they would die anyhow - but another place and may be at a slightly different time. The laws of chaos means that this changes the future - may be much and may be for many. Allah's claimed unchangeable Plan is changed every time this happens. Something is seriously wrong also here in the Quran.

####819 3/154g: “Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death (anyhow*).” Predestination is not a part of the Bible. Yahweh may decide some things, and see to that it happens, but predestination as an essential part of the religion, no.

That it is a fundamental point in the Quran, but none-existing in the Bible, is one more indisputable proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - the teachings are too different.

820 3/154h: "Indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

821 3/154i: "But (all this (Battle of Uhud*) was) that Allah might test what is in your breast and purge what is in your hearts". But why does an omniscient god who on top of all decides and predestines everything according to the Quran, have to test his followers? Where is the logic?

822 3/154j: "For Allah knoweth well the secrets of your hearts". Well, this is just the point: If this is true, why does he then have to test them in bloody battles? Also see 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

823 3/155a: “Those of you who turned back on the day the two hosts met (300 men left Uhud before the battle, leaving 700 to fight, according to Islamic sources*) - - -". A historical anomaly - nobody reading a copy of the claimed "mother book" - like the Quran - before this happened would understand this reference. See 4/13d below

824 3/155a: “Those of you who turned back on the day the two hosts met (300 men left Uhud before the battle, leaving 700 to fight, according to Islamic sources*) - it was Satan who caused them to fail, - - -.” It is Satan who makes you not want to do or be too afraid to take part in battles - do you want to be a friend of Satan? A mighty incitement for fighting for Muhammad and Islam (or sometimes for leaders using or disusing the religion for personal gain or power - like money and slaves for bribes, women for personal use and above all power).

825 3/155b: “Those of you who turned back on the day the two hosts met (300 men left Uhud before the battle, leaving 700 to fight, according to Islamic sources*) - - -". 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, 43/4BBb+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 man has free will - even partly only - 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:

Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

826 3/155c: "- - - it was Satan who caused them (the ones don't wanting to fight*), because of some (evil) they had done". In plain language: They were punished for some sin by not wanting to take part in the battle. Some punishment! Some religion! Not to say quite a "religion of peace"!!

827 3/155d: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Impossible unless he really exists and is a god, neither of which was ever proved - there only are claims and invalid "signs" and "proofs".

828 3/155e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing". See 1/1a above and see if you agree.

829 3/156a: “Oh ye who believe! Be not like the unbelievers - - -”. Unmistakable order.

830 3/156b: "- - - ye who believe!" = Muslims.

831 3/156c: "- - - unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

832 3/156d: “Be not like the unbelievers, who say of their brethren - - - engaged in fighting: ‘If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been slain’”. A clear message: Be of better quality and go to war.

833 3/156e: “Be not like the unbelievers, who say of their brethren - - - engaged in fighting: - - - ". So definitely not from NY. Even in the harder OT war is not glorified like it is in the surahs from Medina. In OT it just is a means to reach a goal; a home country for the Jews.

834 3/156f: “Be not like the unbelievers, who say of their brethren - - - engaged in fighting: ‘If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been slain’”. A clear message: Be of better quality and go to war.

835 3/156g: "This (so*) that Allah may make it (the non-Muslims not going to Paradise when killed in battle*) a cause of sighs and regrets in their hearts". One technique of debating, is to tell the audience what the opponents think or feel or "really" mean - without caring too much about whether it is true or not. This often is done in political debate, but also in f.x. religious "teaching". Textbooks call this "insincerity of 3. degree". Why did Muhammad need to use this kind of technique?

836 3/156h: "It is Allah that gives Life or Death - - -". Again this claim which is interesting for the simple reason that this is repeated several times in the Quran, but Allah has never proved it - claimed it in some borrowed legends, but never anything but words - - - but both Jesus and Yahweh have done so repeatedly if the old books tell the truth.(1. Kings 17/22, 2. Kings 4/34-35, Matt. 9/25, Luke 6/14-15, Luke 8/53-55, John 11/43-44, Acts 9/40, Acts 20/10 - and Jesus himself). But Allah? - nothing but words, not even a peanut. When we have the choice between lofty words only and reality, we always believe in reality. And here the "reality" the Quran claims is nothing but lofty words.

837 3/156i: "- - - Allah sees well all that ye do". Do not try to cheat - you cannot cheat Allah. Also see 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

**838 3/157a: “And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of Allah - - -". But is it really in the way of Allah, when the Quran is not from any god, included Allah?

**839 3/157b: “And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all they could amass”. Nearly no matter how bad a man (nothing is said about women) you have been, to be killed for Allah, is the sure way to go to Paradise. A mighty - and cheap - way to get warriors.

The old Vikings “knew” that if they were killed in battle, they went to Valhalla - that made them ferocious warriors. In Islam the sure way to Paradise with its lazy luxury life and plenty of women, had and has the same effect.

There are two questions, though: Who decides which wars are wanted by Allah? - if you look at history, it seems that a lot of the wars Muslims have fought, in reality were for wealth and power, but mostly they all the same have been declared Holy Wars, a few times even by both sides when both parts were Muslims. And: What if the Quran is invented or not telling the full truth? - all the mistakes and contradictions, etc. in the book make one wonder (or stronger). At least no god makes such a quality book. If the Quran is not from a god, this promise of Paradise also is not true.

In the wars between Sunni and Shi’a and in power struggles among leaders, a lot of warriors have been cheated - both parts in a war between Muslims cannot be fighting for Allah and the “right” belief, but all warriors on both sides often were told they fought against enemies of Allah. If at least one part was right, the warriors from the opposite part had a rude awakening in Hell, even if they were told and believed they were fighting enemies of Allah. Not to mention when all was a struggle for power among leaders, and Allah did not agree at all that any of them were fighting for him - they only were sinning by killing fellow Muslims “without a good reason”, which is a grave sin worthy of Hell.

And even worse: If the Quran is made up or does not tell the truth on this point, no comment is necessary. Especially not if there exists another, true religion somewhere - a religion Muslims are prohibited to look for. Where will the Muslims end in case if there is a next life?

**840 3/157c: “And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all they could amass”. This only may - may - be true if Allah exist and is a god, and if the non-Muslims on top of this believe in a non-existing god - if their god (f.x. Yahweh) exists, he may be able to outdo Allah. (Especially if Allah in reality is a dressed-up and made up pagan god only - and he was a pagan Arab god before Muhammad took him over and renamed him slightly).

841 3/157d: "- - - forgiveness - - -". Allah only can forgive if he exists and in addition is a god.

842 3/157e: "- - - mercy from Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

**843 3/158a: “And if ye die, or are slain, lo! It is unto Allah that ye are brought together”. Be killed in war for Allah, and go to paradise - good “knowledge” for a warrior or terrorist. Whoever said the Quran has to be disused to justify terrorism, hardly ever read the Quran - or uses an al-Taqiyya (a lawful lie - this "convenient" Islamic only phenomenon). See also 3/157b above.

**844 3/158b: “And if ye die, or are slain, lo! It is unto Allah that ye are brought together”. This only can be true if Allah exists, if he in addition is a god, if he runs a religion like told in the Quran - and if the Quran has told the full and only truth about this.

**845 3/158c: “And if ye die, or are slain, lo! It is unto Allah that ye are brought together”. Contradicted by the Bible, which tells it is Yahweh who rules the Day of Doom. 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.

846 3/159a: "- - - the Mercy of Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

847 3/159b: "- - - deal gently with them". Here it is unclear - the Quran often is unclear(one more indication or even proof for that it is not the work of a god) - who "them" are. It may refer to "the Unbelievers" in 3/156. But Muslim scholars think it is a reference to the ones who did not obey Muhammad before and during the battle of Uhud - the some 300 who left/fled before the battle and the archers who during the battle left their positions to be sure they got their parts of the loot (which made it possible for Mecca to turn the battle and win it - though at a price which made them withdraw to Mecca instead of going after a full victory).

848 3/159c: "- - - ask for (Allah's) forgiveness for them (some sinners*) - - -". But to what avail if everything is predestined by Allah long time ago like the Quran states many places? - predestine in accordance with Allah's Plan which nothing and no-one can change, if the Quran tells the truth. There are too many points in the Quran where the logic breaks down - even central and serious points like this. If everything is predestined by Allah long time ago, praying for help or something simply has no meaning, as Allah's Plan is unchangeable. And there are more places in the Quran where the logic is as hopeless. No omniscient god stumbles around like this.

849 3/159d: "- - - ask for (Allah's) forgiveness - - -". To no avail unless Allah really exists and is a god. If not he cannot forgive.

850 3/159e: "- - - and consult them in affairs (of moment)". Logically "them" here indicates the same "them" as mentioned in 3/159b just above. But like so often the Quran is unclear, and Muslim scholars here mean that "them" are all Muslims, and refers to the claimed duty of Muslim leaders to rule by consent and council.

851 3/159f: "- - - put thy (Muslim's*) trust in Allah". Be careful to do that until it is proved that Allah is not just the dressed up pagan and made up god al-Lah - nothing else was ever proved.

852 3/159g: "For Allah loves - - -". See 3/159f just above.

853 3/160a: "If Allah helps you (Muhammad/Muslims*) - - -". But there is no proved case in all history where Allah has helped anyone at all.

854 3/160b: "If Allah helps you (Muhammad/Muslims*), none can overcome you - - -". This is one of the claims where the correct answer entirely depends on if Allah exists and Is a god - and that no stronger god in case exists.

855 3/160c: "- - - if he forsakes you, who is there, after that, that can help you?" See 3/160b just above. Also: If the old books tell the truth, at least Yahweh can help.

856 3/160d: "In Allah, then, let the Believers put their thrust". A bit risky, as it was never proved that he exists.

857 3/160e: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

858 3/161a: “No prophet could (ever) be false to his trust.” Some of Mohammad’s highwaymen (this was in 625 AD when the Muslims lived from stealing/robbing and extortion) were dissatisfied and told Mohammad cheated when splitting the spoils. Then this verse arrived very conveniently from the veneered "Mother Book" in Heaven written by Allah or existed since eternity - even containing such things. Islam says it proved Mohammad did not cheat. That may be correct if Allah made this part of the Quran, but not if Mohammad or someone else did so.

859 3/161b: “No prophet could (ever) be false to his trust.” There is another and much more serious fact here: Through the times most – not to say (nearly?) all – self-proclaimed prophets whom a god has not backed up, have been false prophets. Most of the false prophets have been (and are) men, and in religion they have found a way to money, esteem, and power – and women - the 4 normal reasons for impostors. Some are mentally special or ill – Muhammad is among those if he had TLE (see the chapter “What is TLE – Temporal Lobe Epilepsy” in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran"). Some really believe they are prophets, others just are cheats – if Muhammad had TLE, he may honestly have believed he had some connection to a god, but it also is very clear from the Quran that he at least sometimes knew he was cheating/lying; some of the arguments he used in the book, any intelligent person knows are lies (f.x. that miracles would not make doubters believe), and Muhammad was an intelligent man. And some of the self proclaimed “prophets” simply were/are cold and calculating – sometimes even psychopathic - - - and when one looks at Muhammad’s cold-blooded treatment of victims and opponents, his total disregard (he f.x. had a lot of them murdered) for the life and well-being of everybody who stood between him and power and riches (to use for bribing greedy warriors and chiefs to come to or stay on in his religion and his army), and his clever psychological (every clever salesman knows much about human nature and psychology) manipulation of his uneducated, naïve early followers, it is easy to believe Muhammad belonged to these – may be combined with the effect of the possible TLE or something.

And it is here worth noticing that the other possible explanation for this sentence in the Quran, is that it is a defense against accusations for making up the whole or parts of the book. Interesting here is that in (A3/123), Swedish 2006 edition both accusations are debated, and it is confirmed that Muhammad really was accused for not dealing fair when sharing the booty (this also is mentioned in other sources), whereas in the slightly more "correct" English 2008 edition this is omitted. One only tells that to accuse Muhammad for making up the Quran is "contrary to reason" - which is an invalid (not to use stronger words) argument when you for one thing know there have been literally thousands of false prophets throughout the history, for another thing know how many mistaken fact and other errors there are in the Quran, and for a third know that many of the mistakes are from wrong science of different kinds one believed in in Arabia at the time of Muhammad, and not to forget Muhammad's point of view about honesty when dishonesty might give a better result - not even his own oaths did he respect in such cases. Also see 3/161a above.

860 3/161c: "- - - prophet - - -". But Muhammad was no real prophet. The definition of a prophet was a person who could see at least parts of the unseen, and thus a person who:

Have the gift of and close enough connection to a god for making prophesies.

Makes prophesies that always or at least mostly come true.

Makes so frequent and/or essential prophesies, that it is a clear part of his mission.

A few things Muhammad said, came true – like it has to do for any person saying many things through many years – and most of what he said which did not come true, was forgotten (also this is what normally happens if it is nothing spectacular). But he did not guess the future correctly often - actually he statistically and according to the laws of probability should have "hit the mark" far more often by sheer chance than he did - there just are a few cases where Muslims will claim he foretold something correctly, and few if any of them are "perfect hits". But then the Quran makes it pretty clear that even though he was intelligent, he had little fantasy and that he also was nearly unable to make innovative thinking. (Dearly all his tales and his ideas in reality were "borrowed" ones - though often twisted to fit his new religion. Definitely not a problem any omniscient god would have had).

The main things here are that Muhammad never indicated that anything of what he said was meant as prophesies, that he never indicated, not to mention claimed, that he had the gift of prophesying, that it nowhere is documented that all/most of what he said about the future came true (point 2 above), and finally that both he and Islam said and says that Muhammad was unable to see the unseen (extra revealing here is that the old Biblical title for a prophet, was "a seer" - one who saw the unseen (see further down)) and also that there were no miracles connected to Muhammad “except the Quran” (prophesying is a kind of miracle - seeing what has not yet happened). (This fact that Islam admits there were no miracle connected to Muhammad "except the revelation of the Quran" also is a solid proof for that all the miracles connected to Muhammad mentioned in the Hadiths, are made up stories). We also should add that his favorite wife (and infamous child wife) Aishah, according to Hadiths (f.x. Al-Bukhari) states that anyone saying Muhammad could foresee things, were wrong.

Verse 7/188b also is very relevant here: "If I (Muhammad*) had knowledge of the Unseen (= what is hidden and what has not happened yet*), I should have - - -". IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT MUHAMMAD DID NOT HAVE THE PROPHETS' ABILITY TO SEE "THE UNSEEN" - he was no real prophet.

Also relevant here is as said that the original title of the Jewish prophets was not "prophet", but "seer" - one who saw at least parts of the unseen. (F.x. 1. Sam. #9/9, 1. Sam. 9/11, 1. Sam. 9/18, 1. Sam. 9/19, 2. Kings. 17/13, 1. Chr. 9/22, 1. Chr. 26/28, 1. Chr. 29/29, 2. Chr. 9/29, 2. Chr. 16/7, 2. Chr.16/10, 2. Chr. 19/2, 2. Chr. 29/25, Amos 7/12, Mic. 3/7 - some places the two titles even are used side by side in transition periods). Muhammad thus so definitely was no seer - prophet - even according to his own words; he had no "knowledge of the unseen".

Many liked - and like - the title prophet, and there have been made other definitions for this title - the most common of these are "one who brings messages from a god", or "one who represents a god", or "one who acts/talks on behalf of a god". But the fact remains: Without being able to prophesy, he or she is no real prophet. A messenger for someone or something or himself - ok. An apostle - ok. But not a real prophet.

***This is a fact no Muslim will admit: Muhammad in reality simply was no real prophet or seer. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself – or perhaps an apostle – but not a real prophet. He only “borrowed” that impressive and imposing title. It is up to anyone to guess why. It also is anybody's guess why he more often used the far less imposing title "Messenger" - a messenger boy is something far smaller than a prophet. Did he know or suspect that it was not true, and that explanations for the lack of prophesies from a self proclaimed prophet would be difficult to explain? Like the reason why he so seldom claims he is found in the Bible, may have been that he knew or suspected it was not true?

Besides: To belong in a special line of prophets, the teachings and the prophesies of course must be in line with the other prophets in that line, because a god follows a steady course and teaching (one of the proofs for that something is wrong with the Quran - Allah changes too much back and forth in his claimed teachings, and especially so if he had been identical to Yahweh: From rather harsh up to Jesus, then mild under the new covenant, then harsher, but reasonably mild under Muhammad in Mecca, and finally a full and partly immoral and unjust war god in Medina from ca. 622 - 624 AD when Muhammad started to need warriors to gain riches (mainly for bribes) and power). If not, one either belongs to another line - another god with another teaching/religion - or one simply is a false prophet (there have been many more false prophets than real ones through the times). Muhammad's religion was far from both the OT and even much further from NT, and in addition he was unable to make prophesies - even if he had been a prophet, he is far too far from the teaching of Yahweh and Yahweh’s Jewish prophets. He is not in that line of prophets and not speaking for the same god - too much is different. The Quran simply may be one of the many apocryphal - made up - manuscripts/books more or less loosely built on biblical traditions and "adjusted" to fit the religious teaching of sects more or less distant from the mother religion - the Quran in case is one of the more distant ones.

Also see 30/40h below.

The claim in reality is logical rubbish and taken far out of the context. But it is the only "real" claim they try to cling to (there are some others, but they are even more far out) - they have to, because if not the Quran is wrong and thus not from a god and Islam a made up religion. Also see the chapter "Muhammad in the Bible" in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" - https://www.1000mistakes.com - and 2/77a and 7/157e below.

If the Quran simply belongs among the apocryphal books, many things are easy to understand, and it at least belongs in that line and tradition, even if it is further "out" than most of the others. Muhammad also fits the picture of the leader of an apocryphal sect, admittedly more immoral and bloody - and more successful - than most of the others.

861 3/161d: “No prophet could (ever) be false to his trust. If any person is so false - - -”. Beware that the second sentence means that in reality it all the same may be possible that some prophets or "prophets" may be false to their trust anyhow.

862 3/161e: "- - - none shall be dealt with unjustly". The sadism in Hell as compared to the after all mediocre sins of most sinners sent to Hell, has very little to do with justice and just punishment.

863 3/161f: "- - - unjustly". Beware that when the Quran uses such expressions, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

##864 3/162a: “Is the man who follows the good pleasure of Allah like the man who draws on himself the wrath of Allah - - -?” Of course not – the Muslims are better. It is a strange rule this that the ones inventing an ideology, always deem themselves to be the best, and all others of lower value. The Greeks were better than their "barbarian" neighbors. The old Egyptian found it distasting even to eat together with the Jews, according to the Bible (because they were lowly shepherds). Arab Muslims for centuries were better than other Muslims. Afghan Muslims even today mean they are better Muslims than other Muslims. Everybody is better than the Jews. The Indians were better than the Eskimos. The white race was the very best. Communists were and are best. Not to mention how best the Nazis were. And not to forget: Muslims are better than anyone else - twice as good or better according to some Muslims. It even is possible to believe things like this if you have little education, are naive, or are brainwashed.

865 3/162b: "- - - the wrath of Allah - - -". Once more we are back to the old fact that the only claim for Allah's very existence rests on a man believing in dishonesty when tins paid and on the same man's book full of mistakes, etc. If Allah does not exist, there is no wrath of Allah. And just to mention it: There never has been even one proved case of his wrath - many claims, but not one proved case. Not one.

866 3/163a: "They (Muslims and non-Muslims*) are in varying grades in the sight of Allah, and Allah sees well all that they do." Muslims and non-Muslims have different value to Allah - Muslims of course by far are the best ones.

867 3/163b: "- - - and Allah sees well all that they do." See 2/233a above and 35/38b below.

868 3/164a: "Allah did confer a great favor (by sending Muhammad*) - - -". Here are some possibilities:

li>Allah exists and is an omniscient, major god. In that case he did not send a messenger making so many mistakes.

Allah exists, but is a minor god. Even in this case it is unlikely he would launch a religion built on so many mistakes, etc. - and thus unlikely he would use a "messenger" preaching so many errors.

What pretended to be Allah, in reality was an impostor - dark forces. But even though all the immoral parts of the Quran and Islam may indicate dark forces behind this religion, also dark forces/a devil would be reluctant to send a book so full of mistakes and its "messenger" as basis for its "religion", simply because they had to know they would be found out sooner or later, and lose credibility. There is one possibility, though: If the Devil was permitted to start a false religion to lure more humans into his Hell, but only on the condition that so much should be wrong that thinking persons would see the trap and evade it.

Allah does not exist. In this case no comments are necessary.

In none of these cases Muhammad was a favor to people. This even more so if the Quran is man-made, which honestly is most likely - but in this case Muhammad was not sent.

869 3/164b : "- - - the Believers - - -". = The Muslims.

870 3/164c: “- - - He (Allah) sent among them (Muslims*) a Messenger (Muhammad*) from among themselves - - -“. The Quran and all the mistakes and wrong logic, etc. there, makes it clear that Muhammad was not sent by any omniscient or omnipotent god. But there is a small possibility that he was contacted by a minor god, and a larger possibility that what he believed was Gabriel, in reality was the Devil/a devil in disguise (Muhammad’s inhuman behavior and the inhuman religion he introduced – stealing/robbing, raping, enslaving, torture, murder, mass murder, hate, discrimination, and war – may indicate this). Finally there is an even larger possibility that it was all man-made (f.x. all the mistakes which were "correct knowledge" in Arabia at the time of Muhammad, indicates this - no god and hardly any devil would use wrong facts in a "holy" book).

871 3/164d: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

872 3/164e: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

873 3/164f: “- - - Signs of Allah - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

874 3/164g: "- - - instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom (the Quran*)- - -". There is not much wisdom in a book full of mistakes, contradictions, etc., and as for what there after all is of such; it is not easy - often not possible - to pick out what is wisdom and what is of no value or of negative value, unless you on beforehand have enough wisdom - = intelligence + knowledge - to evaluate every detail which is told to see if it is wisdom or invalid or "unwisdom" or worse. And if there all the same are points you are unable to evaluate, you have to lay them aside till you are able to evaluate it. That is the only way a wise person can treat a book overflowing with mistakes. But when you already have gained so much wisdom, how much is there then to learn from such a book? (In reality the Quran neither is very "deep", nor containing much knowledge except for religious claims and statements - and undocumented claims and statements may be called hypotheses or theories, but are not knowledge no matter how sure you are that your hypotheses or beliefs are right - knowledge needs some kind of proofs, not necessarily the mathematical 100% ones, but at least the 99.998% ones from natural sciences - empirical proofs).

But one thing which is easy for any wise, not brainwashed, person to see, is that no god would base his religion on a book full of errors - if not for other reasons, then because he had to know that he would be found out sooner or later and lose credibility. A dark force - f.x. a devil - might do it to deceive victims, but if he is wise, he would use as few mistakes as possible to make it difficult for the victims to see the trap (there is an exception if the god permitted the Devil to make up a religion to lure more people to Hell, only on the condition that the trap should be easy to see for persons able to think). A human maker of the book is the only really credible possibility, and this even more so as all the real "knowledge" - right or wrong - in the book, is in exact correspondence to the "knowledge" one had in and around Arabia at the time of Muhammad (this in spite of the many claims Muslims make trying to "prove" that the Quran contains facts that was not known at that time - we have not seen one such till now which is not in reality wishful thinking.) And if there is no god behind the Quran, what then is Islam? - and what about all Muslims in a possible next life if Islam is a made up religion like many others?

875 3/164h: "- - - Wisdom - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally means religious wisdom (= Islam). All sciences not related to Islam, in reality were disliked or stronger by Muslim leaders, who fought against such "foreign knowledge" - and finally won that war in 1095 AD with the book "The Incoherence of the Philosophers" by "the greatest Muslim after Muhammad", al-Ghazali. (It took another some 100 years in the far west).

876 3/164i: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

877 3/164j: "- - - (to be in*) error". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Or sometimes - like here? - it simply means anything not in accordance with the Quran (in spite of all the errors in that book).

878 3/165a: “What! When a single disaster smites you, although ye smote (your enemies) with one twice as great, do ye say, ‘Whence is this?'” Unbelievable! You doubt because of a defeat (Uhud)! Ups and downs are inevitable, and here is a pep-talk against that. Just to mention it; you find nothing like this in NT and the New Covenant.

879 3/165b: "- - - Allah hath power over all things". Why then does he have to make humans fight wars for himself?

880 3/166a: "- - - the day when the two armies met - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

881 3/166b : "- - - the day when the two armies met - - -". 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, 43/4BBb+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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

882 3/166c: "- - - when the two armies met - - -". It is likely this refers to the Battle of Uhud, a battle the Muslims in reality lost (but Mecca withdrew and then waited too long with following up the expensive victory).

883 3/166b: "- - - with the leave of

884 3/166c: "- - - in order that He (Allah*) might test the Believers - - -" Also the defeat at Uhud was claimed to be according to Allah's Plan - to test the warriors. But why - WHY - does an omniscient, predestining god need to test anyone when he knows everything before??!! There is no logic in it! Whereas if you think a cunning warlord uses such a story as an explanation and a whip to strengthen and renew the will to fight in his depressed, but believing and naive warriors - well, then there suddenly is logic in the tale.

It takes a lot of naivety to be able to believe that an omniscient and predestining god needs to test his followers to know what they are worth.

885 3/166d: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

886 3/167a: "And (test*) the Hypocrites also." See 3/166c above.

887 3/167b: The hypocrites were no good and refrained from fighting. But you are better?! And you want to make a better impression on Allah?!

888 3/167c: "- - - fight in the way of Allah - - -". That the raids and wars were and partly are made in the name of the god, make them even more detestable, especially as most of them were raids and wars of aggression - mainly for riches, slave and power - and for spreading Islam by means of the sword directly and indirectly.

889 3/167d: "- - - fight in the way of Allah - - -". Verses like this - and there are many of them in the Quran - are more or less the antithesis to NT. Yahweh and Allah the same god? You only need two letters for the answer "no".

890 3/167e: “The Message of the Quran” has this remark to this verse (no. 3/128 to this surah): “Only war in self defense – in the widest meaning of the word – can be reckoned to be a fight for the cause of Allah”. But as “the widest meaning of the word" is very wide, each and every war where one part is Muslim and the other not – and most where both parts are Muslims – are in “self defense” or for other reasons are just wars and always are declared jihad, this simply is hypocrisy. Practically all Muslim wars, included wars of aggression, and there have been plenty of those through the history, have been declared “jihad” – at least we have not been able to find many exceptions from this rule. Actually for centuries all the four law schools in Islam agreed on that the fact that the opposite part in a conflict were Pagans, was good enough reason for to attack them and to declare the attack/war for jihad (holy war). It was not until in the 1920s or 1930s that some Muslim scholars started to question this “law” – and it still only is questioned and only by parts of the Muslims, though nowadays these questions normally makes the Muslim parts, included terrorists, blame the other part so as to give the claim of jihad at least a demagogue’s made up reality of being a just war. Very convenient for anyone who needs warriors/soldiers – and a convenient incitement to war: All wars against “infidels” are “jihad” – with permission to rape and steal and suppress and murder - - - and guarantee for your going to Paradise if you are killed - just like the old Vikings. The good and benevolent Allah likes killers, thieves/robbers, rapists, apartheid, etc., etc. - at least when the dishonesty, atrocities and inhumanities are done in his honor.

891 3/167f: "- - - unbelief - - -". Everything which is not belief in Allah, is unbelief according to the Quran.

892 3/167g: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam.

893 3/167h: "But Allah hath full knowledge of all they (hypocrites*) conceal". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

894 3/168a: “If only they had listened to us (non-Muslims or hypocrites - and not gone to war*), they would not have been slain”. That is what hypocrite Muslims say, according to the Quran - and who wants to be a hypocrite? Good pep talk. On the other hand: In most cases the hypocrites here were right - to claim that it is as dangerous to play with your children or something, as to take part in a battle, is utter stupidity and easy to prove wrong by means of statistics. To be able to believe in an illogical claim like this, takes more than a lot of naivety - a good portion blind belief and/or wishful thinking must be added.

895 3/168b: “Say, ‘Avert death for yourselves (not good Muslims*) - - -.” This argument, which on the surface may be a heavy one, in reality is without meaning, as it demands a not provable deed. Statistically you may prove that your chances of surviving to old age becomes much larger by evading wars and battles, but to prove that one person's own acts has averted his death in such connections, is not possible, except in special cases. (He might have survived the battle anyhow). All the same statistics deliver solid proofs for the claim that to work in your fields is as dangerous as taking part in a battle, is not even nonsense.

896 3/168c: “Say, ‘Avert death for yourselves (not good Muslims*) - - -.” This also refer to the Islamic belief in predestination: You cannot avert death - not even for a short wile - because Allah decided 5 months before you were born (according to Hadiths) when you are to die, and no-one can change Allah's decisions - he at the same time even decided if you were to end in Paradise or in Hell according to Hadiths. No further comment necessary.

**897 3/169a: “Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they live - - - in the presence of their Lord (Allah*)”. What better can a warrior ask for? - and thinking like that, they made - and make - cheap soldiers for Muslim leaders. But what if Muhammad made it all up? - at least no god made the Quran with that many mistakes, etc. So where will all the Muslims in reality end if there is a next life?

**898 3/169b: “Nay, they (dead Muslim warriors*) live - - - in the presence of their Lord (Allah*)”. One more of the very many cases in the Quran where one has to say: If Allah exists. If Allah really is a god. If Allah is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran tells the full and only truth on this point.

899 3/170a: "They (killed Muslim warriors*) rejoice (in Paradise*) in the Bounty provided by Allah*. If Allah exists. If Allah is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran tells the full and only truth on this point. Also see 3/170b and 10/9f below.

900 3/170b: “They (the ones killed in war*) rejoice in the Bounty of Allah (an Earth-like luxury life + plenty of women – how that life is for the women, is of no consequence* - not worth even one question in all the Quran and all the Hadiths or anywhere else in Islamic literature we have seen) - - - (and*) the (martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve.” Psychologically a very good way for a leader to tackle and to prepare his followers for the fact that some warriors were going to die in the wars. There were little cause for sorrow and little cause for blaming the leader. But to be able to believe in this, take lots of naivety, blind belief and wishful thinking - just naivety is not enough.

**901 3/170c: The family and others left behind by dead warriors, have no reason to grieve - their dear one - the warrior - is in Paradise. Yes - if it really was a war for Allah, and not for power or riches for some leader. And if the Quran speaks the truth on this point at least. And if Allah is an existing god.

902 3/170d: "- - - (martyrs) - - -". All Muslims killed in war, are martyrs, no matter if it is a war of aggression or not, or even simply a raid for money and slaves – Muhammad made many such ones and called all of them jihads. It is like if the Christians should call everybody dead in a war with religious contents - f.x. the 30 Years War in Europe (1618-1648 AD) martyrs - or actually in all wars, as more or less all wars Muslims are involved in, are called jihads - "holy wars".

903 3/171a: “They (the “martyrs”*) glory in the grace and the Bounty (silver and brocade and women*) from Allah - - -”. The ultimate pep talk: Your son or husband or father is dead and you will never see him again, and he will never help you if you need - but he is in heaven according to a book with hundreds of mistakes, and told by a man with a very dubious morality.

904 3/171b: "- - - (in their (the claimed martyrs'*) bliss) - - -". This only may be true if Islam is a true religion with a real god, and if the Quran in addition has told everything correctly.

905 3/171c: "- - - in the grace and the Bounty (silver and brocade and women*) from Allah - - -”. One more of the very many cases in the Quran where one has to say: If Allah exists and is a god. If Allah is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran tells the full and only truth on this point.

906 3/171d "- - - the fact that Allah suffereth not the reward of the Faithful to be lost - - -". Once again: If Allah exists, if he in case is a major god - - - and if the Quran tells the full and only truth without mistakes about this. And no matter: This sentence is a claim, not a fact.

907 3/171e: "- - - the fact - - -". The strongest word which in reality can be used here, is "the claim" - the Quran contains so many mistakes and absolutely no proofs for central claims, so this cannot be called a "fact". But then it is quite normal for the Quran to use too strong words when claiming positive things for itself (and when claiming negative things for non-Muslims). Also see 2/2b above.

908 3/171f: "- - - reward - - -". It is quite a "religion of peace" who gives its highest rewards to warriors, and mostly warriors of aggression.

909 3/171g: "- - - the Faithful - - -". Muslims.

910 3/|72a: "- - - those who answered the call of Allah (for fighting*) and the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -".

911 3/172b: "- - - those who answered the call of Allah (for fighting*) and the Messenger (Muhammad*), even after being wounded - - -". This is one of the few places in the Quran where the 3. alternative; to be wounded is mentioned - normally only "the two glorious" alternatives victory and death (= Paradise according to the Quran) are mentioned. And here it is not mentioned as a possible outcome of a fight, but mentioned only to glorify the ones who fight on even if they are wounded. "The Religion of Peace"!??

912 3/172c: “Of those who answered the call of Allah and the Messenger even after being wounded - - - have a great reward.” No further comments, except that Muhammad needed only fighting warriors, and he seems to want to use his resources to the outmost.

913 3/172d: (A3/130): “Of those who answered the call of Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) even after being wounded - - -.” Who? Where? In what situation? Nobody knows – the book is silent, and Muslim scholars’ debate. After Uhud? To Badr as-Sughra? Or some other incident? Anyone is free to guess.

914 3/172e: "- - - Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A variation of Muhammad's standard mantra for gluing himself to his platform of power; his god.

915 3/172f: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

916 3/172g: "- - - those (Muslims*) who do right and refrain from wrong have a great reward (in Paradise*)".One more of the very many cases in the Quran where one has to say: If Allah exists. If he is a god. If Allah is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran tells the full and only truth on this point.

917 3/172h: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. 

918 3/172i: "- - - refrain from wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the bad wrongs was not to go to war and rob and kill for Muhammad and/or Allah.

919 3/172j: "- - - a great reward". Paradise. It takes a special kind of religion to have a paradise - and one full of mainly bodily pleasures only - as the reward for fighting and killing, raping and stealing, mutilating and suppressing. And to make it extra repulsive: All atrocities and inhumanities are to be done in the name of the god!

920 3/173a: “Men said to them: ’A great army is gathering against you’: - - - but it (only) increased their Faith - - -”. Pep talk. Real Muslims are not frightened - and Allah will help. Pep talk incites the warriors to keep fighting, and to wage war, that was of course necessary for Muhammad to gain personal security, power and riches. Like for many warlords at that time.

921 3/173b: “Men said to them: ’A great army is gathering against you’ - - -". 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, 43/4BBb+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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

922 3/173c: "- - - it (the possibility of battle*) (only) increased their (good Muslims'*) Faith - - -". The religion of peace? The same god as in NT?

923 3/173d: "- - - their Faith - - -". Their belief in Islam.

924 3/173e: "- - - He (Allah*) is the best disposer of affairs". Often claimed in Islam, never documented or in any other way proved. Also contradicting the Bible quite a lot - it tells it is Yahweh who is not only best, but the only one.

925 3/174a: “And they returned (from war) with Grace and Bounty from Allah: no harm ever touched them - - -”. A fairy tale picture of war and easy riches. A good pep talk for recruiting new warriors if the men are uneducated and naïve. Glorifying war and spoils of war attracts new warriors. The larger the “army” the better chance of success and power for leaders.

But never a word about the catastrophes for the victims and for the destroyed cultures, etc.. Compassion and empathy nearly does not exist in the Quran - and definitely not concerning non-Muslims.

926 3/174b: "- - - Bounty from Allah - - -". That the raids and wars with its stealing, raping, suppression, extortion and blood shall be in the name of the god, makes the whole "business" - the Quran's rules for waging war - even more disgusting. And are robbed goods, rape and slave taking in accordance with the moral and ethical codes in NT? - the claimed same god? Read the NT and check for yourself.

But notify how often "bounty" is mentioned in connection to propaganda for war in the Quran - the permission to steal from and to enslave the victims was one of the central arguments for alluring Muslim men to go on raids and to war.

927 3/174c: "- - - they (Muslims at war*) followed the good pleasure of Allah - - -". That his followers wage war is the good pleasure of Allah. "The religion of peace"? - a god of peace? If you are sufficient naive or indoctrinated you may be able to believe this.

928 3/174d: "- - - they (Muslims at war*) followed the good pleasure of Allah - - -". The good pleasure of Allah here refers to going to war. You do not find anything even remotely similar to this in NT. And even in the more warlike OT, war was not for the pleasure of the god, but to make room for the Jews, and later for to defend their nation(s).

929 3/|74e: "- - - Allah is the Lord of bounties unbounded". This may refer to the claimed next life or to the material fact that in and around Arabia there were rich people and countries to conquer and steal from or enslave.

930 3/175a: “It is only Satan that suggests to you the fear (of battles*)”. Who wants to be the subject of Satan - it is better to fear Allah and Muhammad and not shy away from fighting.

931 3/175b: "- - - Faith". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

###932 3/176a: "Let not those grieve thee who rush head-along into unbelief - - -". The Bible: "Search for the lost sheep" (f.x. Matt. 18/12-14). Even this small verse alone proves 100% and more that the Quran and the NT cannot come from the same god - the basic ideas behind the religions are totally different. Well, unless the god is mentally ill.

933 3/176b: "Let not those grieve thee who rush head-along into unbelief - - - Allah's Plan is that He will give them no portion in the Hereafter - - -". Allah is predestining everything, also this, and predestining according to his Plan which nobody and nothing can change. Is he then a just god when he punishes these humans?

934 3/176c: "- - - unbelief - - -". What is in reality unbelief? Believing in the Quran which is the only "holy" book which proves completely that it - and the religion which is built on it - is not from a god (too many wrong facts, etc.). Or believing in one or more gods which perhaps exist(s)?

935 3/176d: "- - - Allah's plan is that He will give them (non-Muslims plenty in this life, but*9 no portion in the Hereafter - - -". This is Muhammad's standard "explanation" for why Muslims often live a sorry life whereas some non-Muslims live in plenty. There is no proof for the claim - like for everything else of central claims in the Quran.

936 3/176e: "- - - severe punishment". See 3/77b above.

937 3/177a: "Those who purchase unbelief at the price of faith (in the Quran - full of mistakes*) - - -". See 3/77a above.

938 3/177b: "Those who purchase unbelief at the price of faith (in the Quran - full of mistakes*) - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

939 3/177c: "- - - faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

940 3/177d: "- - - not the least harm will they (the non-believers*) do to Allah - - -". It is not possible to harm him unless he exists.

941 3/177e: "- - - but they (unbelievers*) will have a grievous punishment". See 3/77b above.

942 3/178a: "Let not the unbelievers think Our (Allah's*) respite to them is good for themselves: We grant them respite that they may grow in their iniquity: but they will have a shameful punishment." Once more an explanation to non-Muslims and Muslims alike why non-Muslims often have a good life, but Muslims often a bad one. But do not be sad; they will be punished in the claimed next life.

But does punishment for what the god has predestined indicate a fair, good and benevolent god?

943 3/178b: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) will have a shameful punishment". See 3/77b above.

944 3/179a: (A136): “Allah will not leave the believers in the state (f.x. of being the losers*) in which ye are now - - -.” (After the in reality lost battle of Uhud – though Mecca did not follow up the victory in time). Is this the right meaning of Arab “ma antum alayhi” (exact meaning: “that upon which you are”)? Or does it mean “the (economic, etc.*) condition in which you are”? (Rezi and others). Text not clear.

945 3/179b: “Allah will not leave the believers in the state (f.x. of being the losers*) in which ye are now (in Medina at the time of the "deliverance" of this surah*)- - -.” After the Battle of Uhud. One of the many Arabisms in the Quran.

946 3/179c: “Allah will not leave the believers in the state (f.x. of being the losers*) in which ye are now (in Medina at the time of the "deliverance" of this surah*)- - -.” 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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

947 3/179d: "- - - what is evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the bad wrongs was not to go to war and rob and kill for Muhammad and/or Allah.

948 3/179e: "- - - what is good". See 3/179b just above.

949 3/179f: "Nor will He (Allah*) disclose to you (Muhammad*) the secrets of the Unseen". One more confirmation for that Muhammad was no seer - prophet; He was unable to "see the unseen" = unable to make prophesies. And a person unable to make prophesies is no prophet.

950 3/179g: ""But He (Allah*) chooses of His Messengers (for the purpose) whom He pleases". Muhammad claimed the Jews did not believe in him because he was not a Jew (the real reason was that they knew their own old scriptures, and saw how much in Muhammad's teaching and what he claimed the old god said and wanted, were wrong compared to those scriptures. This is an argument against the Jews, but meant for his followers - the Jews knew he was not speaking the truth here. Worse: The last years - when Muhammad had got more knowledge about at least the OT, he had to see the difference himself and had to know something was wrong. But he blamed everything on falsification of the Bible even if he at this time had to know he was lying - his only way out if he wanted to save his religion and his platform of power - - - and his "face".

951 3/179h: "- - - believe in Allah and His Messengers (included Muhammad*) - - -." A variation of Muhammad's mantra to become - and stay - glued to his god and platform of power, here in a slightly strengthened version.

952 3/179i: "- - - Messengers (included Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

953 3/179j: "- - - believe and do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like "right", it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the bad wrongs was to not go to war and rob and kill for Muhammad and/or Allah.

954 3/179k: "- - - ye (Muslims*) have a reward (in the claimed next life*) without measure." If Allah exists. If Allah is behind what is told in the Quran. And if the Quran tells the full and only truth on this point.

955 3/180a: "- - - those who covetously withhold of the gifts which Allah hath given them - - -". Jews and Christians have got the scriptures from the god, but are bad people and have falsified or withheld parts of it so that it no longer corresponds to Islam and Muhammad and his Quran. Well, science has long since proved this claim wrong: There are no falsifications in the Bible - some mistakes, but no falsifications. Islam has never proved ANY of its claims about falsifications in the Bible at all - not one! Actually they have proved the claim wrong by being unable to find even one proved falsification - guess if they had told about it if they had found one! It all is just a number of not documented claims and all in spite of what we really know about the facts. Actually the very best proof for that nothing is falsified, is just Islam's inability to find even one single proved falsification.

Another, and in this case perhaps more likely, way of understanding this sentence is that Muhammad here like some other places in the Quran, means the non-Muslims were misers. An ironic meaning if it is true Muslims helping others than Muslims. But Muhammad may have been right that they gave little to him - quite natural if they thought his main purpose was to forward what they thought was a false religion and a false god, and perhaps his own power.

956 3/180b: "- - - the gifts which Allah hath given - - -". Nothing of what you own is a result of your toil or robbing - it is gifts from Allah.

957 3/180c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Grace - - -". See 1/1a above.

958 3/180d: "To Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved - and one of those claims any believer in any religion can make free of charge on behalf of his/her god(s) as long as he/she can evade all requests for proofs.

959 3/180e: "To Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Strongly contradicted by the Bible, which tells this belongs to Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

960 3/180f: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22.

961 3/180g: "- - - Allah is well acquainted with what ye do". See 2/233h above and 35/38b below.

962 3/181a: "Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say: 'Truly, Allah is indigent and we (non-Muslims*) are rich!" The other Arabs taunted the still poor Muslims (mainly poor people followed Muhammad in the start, and they had still not become rich from plunder) with that the Muslims were poor and they themselves were rich. One of the many Arabisms in the Quran.

963 3/181b: "Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say: 'Truly, Allah is indigent and we (non-Muslims*) are rich!" The other Arabs taunted the still poor Muslims (mainly poor people followed Muhammad in the start, and they had still not become rich from plunder) with that the Muslims were poor and they themselves were rich. 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.

Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

964 3/181c: "Truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

965 3/181d: "Allah is indigent and we (non-Muslims*) are rich". This is from 625 AD before the Muslims became really well off from stealing, extorting, enslaving, etc. Most of Muhammad's early followers as mentioned were from the poor and uneducated classes.

966 3/181e: "- - - slaying the Prophets - - -". Read the Bible and see how many - or few - prophets the Jews in reality slew.

967 3/181f: "- - - slaying the prophets in defiance of right - - -". Is there any time or place where it is right to slay real prophets?

968 3/181g: "- - - right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

969 3/181h: In the next life the non-Muslims who have a good life on Earth, have their punishment. A soothing thought and a good "explaining away" of the fact that many non-Muslims were well off whereas many Muslims were poor. Also see 3/77b above.

970 3/181i: "- - - the Scorching Fire - - -". Hell.

971 3/182a: "This (being sent to Hell*) because of the (unrighteous deeds) which your hands sent before ye (non-Muslims*) - - -". = Because of sins you did in this life. But is this fair if Allah predestined everything you did, like the Quran claims many places?

972 3/182b: "- - - (unrighteous deeds) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the bad wrongs was not to go to war and rob and kill for Muhammad and/or Allah.

973 3/182c: "- - - (what*) your hands sent on before ye (humans*) - - -". This is an expression you meet some places in the Quran. It means that what you did of good and bad things in this life is noted in a book in Heaven, and will give you plusses and minuses at the day of doom. But again: Is this fair, if Allah predestines everything you say and do like the Quran claims several places? Intellectually believing Muslims are living in straight-jackets and mental prisons, and believing narrow-mindedness and intellectual fences is the horizon.

974 3/182d: "- - - Allah never harms those who serve Him". See 1/1a and add the narrow-mindedness especially the conservative Muslims are forced into, and see if you agree.

975 3/182e: "- - - Allah never harms those who serve Him". He can harm no-one unless he exists. On the other hand: If he does not exist and he just is the false pagan god al-Lah, the belief in him under the name Allah has done and continue to do his believers immeasurable harm - and especially so if there somewhere exists a god/gods Muslims are prohibited by in this case old superstition from looking for. (If Allah does not exist, or even if he exists, but is falsely described in the Quran, Islam just is strong superstition).

976 3/183a: “They (non-Muslims/Jews*) (also) said: ’Allah took our promise not to believe in a Messenger unless he showed us a sacrifice consumed by fire (from heaven)’.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 man has free will - even partly only - 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.

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.

977 3/183b: “They (non-Muslims/Jews*) (also) said: ’Allah took our promise not to believe in a Messenger unless he showed us a sacrifice consumed by fire (from heaven)’. Say: ’There came to you messengers before me, with Clear Signs and even with what ye ask for (fire from heaven as a proof*): why then did ye slay them, if ye speak the truth?”

The first double-quoted sentence is far from in accordance with the Bible or other Jewish scriptures - there is no reference to that the Jews (or Christians) said something like this. Though this verse is likely to be inspired by Elijah and his duel with the Baal priests (1. Kings 18/22-39), but that was not after such a request from the Jews.

Only a very few prophets used fire from heaven as a proof or at all to have brought such fire - the most well-known of these was Elijah, and he so definitely was not slain (he according to the Bible was taken up to Heaven alive (2. Kings 2/11)). None of the prophets who according to the Bible used fire from heaven as a proof, were killed. Besides the logic is wrong: That the Jews were accused of having slewed some, does not disprove that proof was a minimum requirement (and transferred to the Quran: Especially when a claimed message is full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. so that verification of what is true and what is not is strongly needed).

978 3/183c: “Allah took our promise not to believe in a Messenger unless he showed us a sacrifice consumed by Fire (from heaven)”. The underlying question: Then where are the proofs for your tales? There never was a valid answer to that question - never a valid proof.

979 3/183d: "Say: 'There came to you (non-Muslims/Jews/Christians*) before me (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

980 3/183e: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. There are no clear signs (= proofs for Allah or Muhammad) in the Quran or any other place – not one. See 2/39b above.

981 3/183f: "- - - why then did ye (Jews*) slay them (their prophets*) - - -". Few of the Biblical real prophets were slain - just read the Bible yourself and check. This in contradiction to Muhammad's indications that most or all were slain (f.x. the here quoted words may be understood like Muhammad claims all of them were slain).

982 3/184a: "Then if they reject thee (Muhammad*), so were rejected Messengers before thee - - -." This also is one of the remarks you meet here and there in the Quran: There is nothing strange in that Muhammad and his teachings were not accepted at once - that is normal for messengers. "Ergo" the situation is normal for a "messenger" when Muhammad is rejected. "Ergo" Muhammad is a (normal) messenger. (But the logic here does not hold - to be rejected is not a "sine qua non" (= it proves nothing)).

983 3/184b: “- - - Clear Signs (claimed to be of Allah*)- - -“. Wrong. See 2/39b above.

984 3/184c: "- - -the Book of Enlightenment." It is possible to guess here is meant the Bible, but most likely the reference is to the Quran - a book giving little enlightenment, as there are too many mistakes, etc. - making the "knowledge" unreliable or invalid, and also proving that it cannot be made of a god (an omniscient god makes no mistakes, contradictions, etc.), which further makes also the religious claims and statements unreliable or invalid.

985 3/185a: "- - - only on the Day of Judgment shall you (people*) be paid your full recompense". The recurring "explanation" for injustice in this world - and the comfort in knowing that "I" will end up on top later: Justice will happen in the next life. Cheap words for Muhammad - especially if they are not true. Shooting comfort for believing followers.

986 3/185b: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

987 3/185c: "- - - the Garden - - -". The Quran's and Islam's Paradise. See 10/9f below.

988 3/185d: "- - - life in this world is but goods and chattels of deception". Unintended (or intended?) irony if the Quran is a made up book - and it at least is not from a god (too much is wrong).

989 3/186a: “You shall certainly be tried and tested - - -”. Difficulties are just Allah’s way of testing you, and you do not pass the test unless you keep fighting. (But why does an omniscient and predestining god need to test you? - he knows everything already. There is no logic in this, not unless it is Muhammad who needs this argument as a carrot and a whip to strengthen his warriors' will to fight, or to "explain" why raids (for wealth mainly) and wars were "necessary".)

990 3/186b: "- - - those who received the Book before you - - -". = Mainly Jews and Christians. (Muhammad claimed the Bible and the Quran was the same book, only that the bad Jews and Christians had falsified it - a claim science and even more Islam have thoroughly proved wrong by being unable to find even one proved falsification.)

991 3/186c: "- - - those who worship many gods." The Pagans.

992 3/186c: “But if ye persevere patiently - - - then that will be a determining factor in all affairs”. Keep fighting and you will win. Non-Muslims should never forget this expression.

993 3/186d: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the bad evils was not to go to war and rob and kill for Muhammad and/or Allah.

994 3/187a: "And remember Allah (Yahweh*) took a Covenant from the People of the Book (= Jews and Christians*) - - -". According to the Bible it was Yahweh who did this - a different god with a very different teaching, especially after "the new covenant" (f.x. Luke 22/20) took place.

995 3/187b: "And remember Allah (Yahweh*) took a Covenant from the People of the Book (= Jews and Christians*) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d below.

996 3/187c: "And remember Allah took a Covenant from the People of the Book (= Jews and Christians mainly*), - - - but they threw it away - - -".

Yahweh took a covenant with the Jews. It was sometimes respected, sometimes mistreated and broken and fell into disuse - - - and renewed time and again. What the Quran and Islam never mention, is that Yahweh never terminated it (well, Islam claims it was terminated "de facto" by the Jews' breaking and mistreating it, but not even the Quran says that the god told he terminated it). As not even the Quran claims the covenant was a fiction, at least formally it thus still was valued at the time of Muhammad, and even today.

Yahweh took a "new covenant" with the followers of Jesus, formalized via Jesus during "the Last Supper" (Luke 22/20 and a number of other places) and more or less the same can be said about this one, but with the addition that there always were many honest believers in this covenant never breaking it, so that there never was a reason for terminating it - omitting bad elements from it, yes, terminating it, no. The new covenant is never mentioned by Muslims. (Most Muslims have never even heard about it, even though their scholars know about it.)

997 3/187d: "And remember Allah (Yahweh*) took a Covenant from the People of the Book (= Jews and Christians*), - - - but they threw it away - - -".

Many Muslims claim this in reality is about the claimed mentioning of Muhammad in the Bible. But so what, when there is no such mentioning? It is very obvious that there is no clear mentioning of Muhammad there. Then Muslims make a number of claims about hidden references (even though the Quran tells he is clearly mentioned), but the cherry-picking of words and the twisting of meanings are too obvious and too wrong. See the chapter about the claims about Muhammad in the Bible in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" or in 7/157e below.

998 3/187e: "- - - the People of the Book - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans (see 2/62f above.

999 3/187f: "- - - they (Jews and Christians*) threw it (the claimed original Bible*) away behind their backs - - -". = They falsified the Bible - a claim both science and Islam solidly have proved is wrong.

1000 3/187g: "- - - purchase with it some miserable gain!" See 3/77a above.

1001 3/187h: "And vile was the bargain they (Jews, Christians*) made." In reality identical to 3/187g just above. In addition: This claim is wrong if the Quran is not reliable - and doubly wrong if the god they believed in instead (Yahweh*), really exists.

1002 3/188a: The recurring theme: Why do many non-Muslims have a good life whereas many good Muslims fare badly - and the same soothing "explanation" and more soothing based on "Schadenfreude".

1003 3/188b: "For them is a Penalty grievous indeed". See 3/77b above.

1004 3/189a: "To Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth; and Allah hath power over all things". Another example of the never proved or documented claims and statements the Quran makes.

1005 3/189b: "To Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth; and Allah hath power over all things". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells all this belongs to Yahweh - a perhaps proved god (in contrast to Allah) if the old books tell the truth on relevant points. 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.

1006 3/189c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d above.

1007 3/189d: "- - - Allah hath power over all things." Allah decides everything - the Muslim teaching of predestination on addition to his total power - - - and again the impossibility even for a god to combine total predestination (- all things -) with free will of man = one more reminding of that something is wrong. And if it here is meant physical power, such power from Allah never is proved - - - well, actually none of his claimed kinds of power has ever been reliably proved. And his power? He has never clearly proved it.

1008 3/189e: "- - - Allah hath power over all things." Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.

1009 3/190a: "Behold, in the creation of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day, there are indeed Signs for men of understanding -". The Quran frequently disuses natural phenomenon as claimed "signs"/proofs for Allah, etc. But for one thing they all are instinctively invalid, as any priest in any religion can say just the same about his/her god(s) - without proofs it just is cheap, valueless words. And for another they also are totally invalid logically as long as Islam does not prove Allah really made the heaven and the Earth and the night and day. Even worse: Who needs to use bluffs and invalid arguments? - mainly the cheat and deceiver.

1010 3/190b: “Behold, in the creation of the heavens (plural and wrong) - - - there are indeed Signs for men of understanding - - -”. The heaven is an optical illusion caused by natural refraction (bending of the sunlight) by day, and by our inability to see in 3 dimensions at too long distances without references, at night. There is nothing but boasting in this claim, until Islam proves that Allah really did it.

Besides: Is there something symbolic in that Muhammad used something which is just an illusion as a proof for Allah?

1011 3/190c: "- - - for men of understanding - - -". As for "men of understanding": Flattery is cheap – but often works (see 13/3j above).

1012 3/190d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong – there are no 7 material heavens. See 2/22d. Any god had known, but Muhammad not. Who made the Quran?

*1013 3/190e: “- - - (and in*) the alternation of Night and Day, there are indeed Signs for men of understanding - - -”. Who - especially of uneducated people - does not like to hear they are persons of understanding? - or are reluctant to be classified as one of no understanding? But all the same: This simply is a natural phenomenon. No god has anything to do with night and day unless the opposite is proved - and statements of the opposite need documentation. Added some flattery – it is cheap and often works well, especially if the audience consists of a little naïve persons eager to believe. Well:

The first possible conclusion a man of understanding can make here is: Muhammad had no valid arguments – if he had had real and true arguments, he had not had to use invalid ones.

The other possible conclusion a man of understanding can make from this, is that something is seriously wrong. Wrong information, invalid logic, contradictions "en masse", and sometimes lies, after all are the hallmarks of a deceiver, a cheat, and a swindler.

Also see 2/39b above.

1014 3/190f: “- - - Signs - - -.” As long as it is not proved that it really was Allah who created it, it is invalid as sign or indication or proof for Allah or anything related to Islam. See 2/39b above.

1015 3/191a: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

1016 3/191b: "Not for naught hast Thou (Allah*) created (all) this (everything*)!" Allah or some other god or nature. This just is one more of the natural phenomena which Muhammad claimed for his god - like any believer in any religion can do for his/her god(s) as long as the claims for proofs can be evaded. Totally invalid as proof or indication for Allah, as long as it is not proved that it really was Allah who created it. And we remind you: "A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion" Also see 11/7a below.

1017 3/191c: "Glory to Thee!" Ask first for proofs for that it really was Allah who created everything - and also read 1/1a - and see if he deserves any glory - - - if he exists.

1018 3/191d: "Give us (some Muslims*) salvation from the Penalty of Fire". See 3/77b above.

1019 3/191e: "- - - the Penalty of the Fire - - -". See 3/77b above.

1020 3/191f: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

1021 3/192a: “Our Lord (Allah*). Any (non-Muslim*) - - - truly Thou coverest with shame, and never will wrongdoers find any helpers”. Of course not – they are of so bad quality, that they do not deserve any help.

1022 3/192b: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

1023 3/192c: "- - - truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

1024 3/192d: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". In the Quran normally a name for non-Muslims - one of several with low-esteem value or worse frequently used by Muhammad. Names of such categories often are used by leaders of groups if the leader wants to create distance between "us" in the group and "them" outside.

1025 3/193a: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

1026 3/193b: "Forgive us (Muslims*) our sins - - -". Allah only can forgive sins if he exists and is a god.

1027 3/193c: "- - - blot out from us (Muslims*) our inequities - - -". Also this Allah cannot do unless he exists and in addition is a god.

1028 3/193d: "- - - take to Thyself (Allah*) our souls - - -". See 3/193c just above.

1029 3/193e: "- - - the righteous". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

1030 3/194a: "Grant us (Muslims*) what Thou (Allah*) didst promise unto us (Muslims) through Thy prophets - - -." The Quran claims that all the old prophets - 124ooo Islam says (included the old Jewish ones) - are "their" prophets, and prophets in a long line leading up to Muhammad. But for this to be true, Muhammad's teachings, moral, ethics, etc. have to be in accordance with the corresponding ones of the old prophets - if one belongs to the same tradition from the same god, at least the main points have to be similar and nothing contradicting. In this case these facts do not add up. Muhammad cannot be in the same line unless the god suddenly changed his mind very much on several points (especially around 622 - 624 AD when Islam changed from relatively peaceful to a pure religion of war and suppression) - his teaching is very different from the known prophets. A fact few non-Muslims are aware of and no Muslims ever mention (also most lay Muslims are not aware of this fact, but their scholars know it).

1031 3/194b: "- - - Thou (Allah*) never breakest Thy promise". One more of the never proved claims in the Quran. There is not one single case in all history and prehistory of a promise Allah provably fulfilled - guess if Muslims had reminded you about it if there had ever happened a proved case!. But words and claims are cheap as long as claims for proofs can be evaded.

1032 3/195a: "And their (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) accepted them - - -". Often claimed, never proved.

1033 3/195b: "And their (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) accepted them, and answered them - - -". Often claimed, never proved.

1034 3/195c: "Never will I (Allah*) suffer to be lost the work of any of you (Muslims*) - - -". If Allah exists. If he is a god. If he is behind the making and thus the texts of the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth.

1035 3/195d: “- - - those who have - - - fought or been slain – verily, I (Allah*) will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them into Gardens - - -.” An unbeatable and cheap incitement for recruiting real believers to war: Be killed in war and go directly to Paradise no matter what great a sinner you have been before.

1036 3/195e: “- - - those who have - - - fought or been slain – verily, I (Allah*) will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them into Gardens - - -.” Guess if this contradicts the NT and f.x. its "turn the other cheek" or "you shall not kill"!! Yahweh and Allah the same god? Just this quotation alone proves they are not - and then there are all the other proofs in addition.

**1037 3/195f: “- - - those who have left their homes, or been driven out therefrom, or suffered harm in My (Allah’s*) cause, or fought or been slain - verily, I will blot out from them their iniquities, and admit them into (Paradise*)”. This has two messages: Persons who are persecuted for being Muslims and also warriors who go out to fight for Islam - they are the same, and both will end in Paradise. Many a terrorist has left his home, he may intend to fight - or at least call what he does a fight. With a bit of luck - or on purpose - he may die for the “cause”. Excellent - next stop is paradise, nearly no matter what sins you have done before. Did anyone say that the Quran had to be disused to incite to hate, killing, rape, war and terrorism?

But what if the Quran - and Allah - are made up? - at least the Quran with all its errors is not from any god.

1038 3/195g: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

1039 3/195h: "- - - Gardens with rivers flowing beneath - - -". The Quran's and Islam's paradise. See 10/9f below. This is the most frequently used Arabism in the Quran.

1040 3/195i: "- - - His (Allah's*) Presence is the best of rewards". If he exists. If he is behind the tales of the Quran. And if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth about this.

1041 3/196a: "Let not the strutting about of the unbelievers through the land deceive thee (Muslims*)". Often it is easier to deceive oneself than to be deceived by others. Not to mention how much easier it is to be deceived by people one trusts, than by persons one distrusts.

1042 3/196b: "- - - unbelievers - - -". = Non-Muslims. One of Muhammad's many negative names for them.

1043 3/197: "- - - their (non-Muslims*) ultimate abode is Hell - - -". See 3/77b above.

1044 3/198a: "- - - for those who fear their Lord (Allah*), are Gardens". Muslims go to Paradise. But a Paradise of mainly bodily satisfaction and luxury. Is this the best an omniscient and omnipotent god has to offer? Or was it just the maximum which could interest the primitive souls of primitive warriors?

1045 3/198b: "- - - those who fear their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Muslims.

1046 3/198c: "- - - Gardens - - -". The Quran's and Islam's paradise. See 10/9f below.

1047 3/198d: "- - - Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath - - -". The paradise of the Quran and of Islam is the dream of the desert dweller - included plenty of water. This also is the most used Arabism (see 4/13d below) in the Quran.

1048 3/198e: "- - - therein (in Paradise*) are they (Muslims*) to dwell (for ever) - - -". One verse (11/108c) may indicate that also Paradise is not for ever (Islam solves the uncertainty by claiming this in case will mean that the inmates of Paradise will be transferred to something even better, but this is not said in the Quran).

1049 3/198f: "- - - the Presence of Allah is the best (bliss) - - -". If he exists and is a god, and if the future in addition is correctly described by the Quran.

1050 3/198g: "- - - the righteous". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

1051 3/198h: "- - - the righteous". Here = the Muslims.

1052 3/199a: "- - - certainly - - -". See 2/2b above.

1053 3/199b: "- - - the People of the Book (here the Bible*) - - -". = Jews, Christians and Sabeans (likely the inhabitants of the mainly Christian Saba/Sabah/Sheba - in what now is Yemen, but also see 2/62f above.)

1054 3/199c: "- - - those (of "the People of the Book"*) who believe in Allah - - -". None of those believe in Allah, but in Yahweh (though some of them sometimes wrongly have used the name Allah for Yahweh). If they believe in Allah, they no longer are of "the People of the Book", but Muslims.

1055 3/199d: "- - - revelations - - -". It was never proved they really were revelations, not to mention it was never proved all were revelations even if the case that some happened to be - from someone or something (though with so many errors, etc. not from a god). Like everything else also this rests on unproved claims only.

1056 3/199e: "- - - sell the Signs of Allah for a miserable gain - - -". This and similar expressions mostly are used in the Quran in connection to persons not wanting to enter or wanting to leave Islam, and in connection with claims about falsifications of the Bible - some ones will sell their future in the claimed Paradise "for a miserable gain" in this life.

1057 3/199f: "- - - the Signs of Allah - - -". There are no "signs" clearly from Allah in all the Quran or any other place - only claims for such ones, claims any person in any religion can make for his/her god(s).

1058 3/199g: "For them (strongly believing Jews and Christians*) is a reward with their Lord". There may be a hope for Paradise also for Jews and Christians - - - if this verse is not abrogated (made invalid) by a stricter one later on.

1059 3/199h: "For them (strongly believing Jews and Christians*) is a reward with their Lord, and Allah is swift in account". Here the Quran once more wrongly indicates that Yahweh and Allah is the same god, a claim which obviously is wrong as the teachings of those two too often and too fundamentally are too different.

1060 3/199i: "- - - for Allah is swift in account". The old fact: Only if he exists and if he in addition is a god.

1061 3/200a: "- - - ye who believe!" = Muslims.

1062 3/200b: “Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper”. If George Bush had read this, he had listened to his generals and used more troops - for once USA used too few troops in an invasion when they invaded Iraq. Non-Muslims also should be aware that the Quran imprints and imprints and imprints that if you persevere, the opponent grows tired and gives in. Too often this is correct.

1063 3/200c: "- - - fear Allah; that ye (Muslims*) may prosper". There is no use in fearing Allah unless he exists and in addition is a god, neither of which is anywhere proved - and this even more so as the Quran itself proves it is not from a god (no omniscient god makes mistakes, contradictions, need abrogations, etc.)

#####8/69a-d: "- - - lawful and good - - -". If these words and the context they are taken from ("- - - enjoy what (loot, slaves, and women* + destruction and murder) ye took in war (normally of aggression*), lawful and good - - -") were all you knew about the Quran and Islam, this alone would be enough to remove them from the civilized world, and transfer it to the dark, harsh, and inhuman Medieval ages or earlier. This even more so as this is not "abrogated" (made invalid) by today's Islam, but on the contrary are preached many places all over even today in some Islamic fora and groups and countries. (And even practiced during armed conflicts - Bangladesh, East Timor, East Africa, and Indonesia a "short" time ago. Low intensity active in f.x. Indonesian New Guinea and parts of Africa even now (2010).)

Just remember that most Muslims are ok. Only a minority is militant - 1-2% according to Muslims (but 2% of 1.2 billion = 24 million). Then according to international science some 30% (= some 360 million) are willing to help the militants actively or with money, or at least "understand" them. The rest - the majority - are ok. (But our problem is to know who is who.)

But what is absolutely sure, is that apologists telling that "there are verses in the Quran which can be misused by terrorists", are talking nonsense. According to the Quran it is very clear it is the peaceful Muslims who are not good Muslims, and the activists who are laudable and obeying Muhammad and Allah.

10/32: "- - - apart from the Truth, what (remains) but error?"

(A6/92 - English 2008 edition A6/93): "- - - it is in the nature of man to regard the beliefs which have been implanted in him(!) from his childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible one - - -". This goes for Muslims more than for any other, because the imprinting is much stronger.

"Religious "knowledge" nearly always in reality only is belief - often strong belief, but only belief". (In Islam exactly nothing of any consequence is proved.)

A world dominated by Islam is quite possible - Islam is expanding. Will it end up like North Pakistan or Afghanistan or like Saudi Arabia without oil - or somewhere in between? - and this because of a religion which itself proves that something is seriously wrong with its teaching, and also that there is no god behind its "holy" book (no omniscient god makes mistakes), and thus not behind the religion.

A nice future for our grandchildren?
