1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 31 -- LUQMAN

Revelation: Mecca, 614 - 617 AD.

(See general comments on Surahs here: Introduction)

(Note: Luqman was a wise man from old Arab fairy tales - an Arabism)


 

The quotes and comments

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

002 31/1: "Alif Lam Mim". 2 - 5 Arab letters are to be found at the start of many of the surahs. They are called abbreviated letters and have no meaning, or in the cases where they perhaps may have a meaning, it is not a meaning connected to its surah. Clear language in the Quran?

003 31/2a: “These are Verses of the Wise Book”. A book with lots and lots of mistakes and with lots and lots of unproved statements based on nothing except unproved, cheap words, is no wise book and no book “full of wisdom”. It may be symptomatic that the name of this surah, Luqman, is the name of a wise man in an Arab fairy tale, not a real one. For similar claims see 2/231- 10/1 – 10/37 – 17/99 – 28/2 – 31/20 - 32/2 – 35/25 - 36/2 – 43/4 – 54/5.

004 31/2b: "- - - wise - - -". See 2/2b above. When it comes to words like "wise" and similar, be extra obs. when they are used for camouflaged flattery. Also see 13/3j and 26/83a above.

005 31/3a: “A Guide - - -”. See 31/2 just above. Such a book also is no good guide.

006 31/3b: "- - - a Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

007 31/3c: "- - - Doers of Good - - -". Muslims.

008 31/3d: "- - - Good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all moral and all ethics and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F. x. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defend this with that such behviour only is premitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defence - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder even more despiceable).

009 31/4a: "Those who establish regular Prayer - - -". Muslims.

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

#010 31/4b: "- - - regular Prayer - - -". This demand for regular prayers - 5 times a day - was so essential for Allah (he even wanted more often according to Hadiths) that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. For Yahweh such formalism was so totally without any interest, that no similar rule - not even the idea - at all is mentioned in the entire Bible: Pray when there is a reason or a need or a wish. One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

011 31/4c: "- - - give regular in Charity - - -". The standpoints about charity are a plus in the Quran. The value and effect is reduced by 2 facts, though:

The main point with charity is to gain merit in Heaven, not to help others.

You get as much merit in Heaven from helping your wife or children as from helping strangers. Then it is easy to think: Why help strangers? 

012 31/4d: "- - - (good Muslims have*) - - - the assurance of the Hereafter - - -". Only if Allah exists and has delivered the Quran, and the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth.

013 31/5a: “These (Muslims*) are on (true) guidance (the Quran*) - - -“. A book with lots of mistakes, twisted arguments, as twisted logic, and dictated by a man of very suspect morality and defending and enlarging his platform of power – his self proclaimed religion – is no reliable guidance and of suspected truth. More proofs are needed to make this believable.

014 31/5b: "- - - (true) - - -". See 2/2b above.

015 31/5c: "- - - (true) guidance (the Quran*) - - -". There is not much true guidance in a book full of errors and of partly immoral moral and ethics.

016 31/5d: "- - - (true) guidance (the Quran*) from their (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". No book with so much wrong is from a god.

017 31/5e: "- - - (good Muslims*) are the ones who will prosper". Often claimed, never documented. Also see 31/5a above.

018 31/6a: "- - - those who purchase idle tales - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

019 31/6b: "- - - those who purchase idle tales - - -". Was Muhammad in reality among these? - his tales were full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. and not a comma was ever proved of the central themes.

020 31/6c: "- - - without knowledge - - -". Who are without knowledge - the ones who see that something is wrong with the Quran, or the ones who just blindly believe?

021 31/6d: "- - - without knowledge - - -". Who is without knowledge - the skeptic who asks questions, or the one who blindly believe without asking questions?

022 31/6e: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally (nearly always) means religious and related knowledge. This later used to be called "Islamic knowledge" and was good. All other sciences were "foreign knowledge" and was bad - even violently persecuted at times (a fact never mentioned by Muslims boasting about how Islam saved the old Greek and Persian knowledge - which largely was done not because of Islam, but in spite of Islam).

023 31/6f: "- - - to mislead (men (Muslims*)) - - -". Who are misleaded? - the ones believing blindly in the words of man of dubious moral, believing in the use of al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), deception ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is jihad), and broken words/promises/oaths, a man liking power and women? - or the ones able to see that something is seriously wrong in the Quran?

024 31/6g: "- - - the Path of Allah - - -". The indicated meaning is the road to Islam's Paradise. But is it in reality the Path of Allah? - or of Muhammad? - or of some other forces?

h: "- - - the Path of Allah - - -". This path does not exist unless Allah exists and in addition is something supernatural - from the white or dark forces.

025 31/6h: "- - - humiliating penalty". See 3/77b above.

026 31/7a: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -". There does not exist one single sign in this entire world which clearly is from Allah. Mostly they natural phenomena which are not even clearly signifying a god, and in each and every case any priest in any religion can claim just the same for his god(s). Such "signs" are totally invalid as sign for a specific god - or a god at all - unless it first is proved that it really is that god - if any - who does it.

027 31/7b: "- - - he (a skeptic*) turns away in arrogance, as if he heard them (the tales about the claimed signs of Allah*) not, as if there were deafness in both his ears - - -". Psychologically a much better story for Muhammad to tell his followers, than to admit some had good reason for skepticism. The same technique is used today and has been used through all times by leaders pushing ideologies or religions.

028 31/7c: "- - - grievous Penalty". See 3/77b above.

029 31/8a: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims.

030 31/8b: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all moral and all ethics and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F. ex. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defends this with that such behviour only is premitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defence - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder, etc. even more despiceable).

031 31/8c: "(For good Muslims*) there will be the Gardens of Bliss". If Allah exists and if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth about him.

032 31/8d: "- - - Gardens of Bliss". The Quran's Paradise. See 10/9f above.

033 31/8-9: "(For good Muslims*) there will be the Gardens of Bliss, to dwell therein". If Allah exists and if the Quran in addition tells the full truth and only the truth about him.

034 31/9a: “The promise of Allah is true”. There never was one proved promise which was or is proved come true. Guess if Islam had told about it in case! Claims "en masse" but never a proved case.

035 31/9b: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

036 31/9c: "He (Allah*) is Exalted in Power - - -". Perhaps, but he has never showed it.

037 31/9d: "He (Allah*) is - - - Wise". Not if he made the Quran - too many mistaken facts, etc.

038 31/10a: "He created - - -". One of the Quran's many unproven claims. See 21/56c above.

###039 31/10b: “He created the heavens (plural and wrong*) without any pillars that you can see - - -”. The Quran tells that the 7 heavens rest on invisible pillars (of course they need pillars - if not they would fall down!!!). Nowadays even Islam knows this is wrong, and the statements have to be explained away. We have f.x been told from Islamic information centers on Internet that: “- everyone with an IQ more than 60 of course understand that that means the pillars do not exist”.

But we know well the difference between “invisible” and “not existing”.

We also remember that the Quran - and Islam and Muslims - says the book is to be understood literally - "clear meaning" - (if nothing else is said). About the statement that what is said in the Quran has clear meaning - see 3/7, 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, 27/1, 28/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/32. No doubt.

040 31/10c: (YA3587): “He (Allah*) created the heavens without any pillars that ye can see - - -.” Or does it mean that it is the heavens you cannot see? – pick your choice, as the claimed clear Arab text may mean also this (though it is the first one we most often meet). A. Yusuf Ali here explains the pillars with forces – interesting as it is an explanation we have not met before. But it is meaningless all the same: For one thing no force field has ever been registered (shall we guess that Muslims will explain this with a loose and convenient claim about forces only Allah can register?) But the main thing is that there are no 7 heavens that are “raised” and kept in their places – neither by pillars, nor by anything else.

041 31/10d: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

042 31/10e: “He set on earth mountains - - -”. The mountains are not set (another place in the Quran it even says “set down“) - they without exception have grown up.

043 31/10f: “He set on earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you - - -”. Originally Muslim scholars say that this refers to the (wrong) danger that the pancake-like (?), flat disc which is Earth, could start shaking or wobbling, then to tumble and turn and drop you off - and some such scholars still admits this is the real meaning. But even if we accept Islam’s modern “explanation” - that this has to do with earth quakes, it is completely wrong. Mountains do not hinder earth quakes. On the contrary: Earthquakes very often are connected to the same processes which build the mountains, whether this is tectonic or volcanic activity (when we say “very often” in connection to tectonic activity, the reason is that earthquakes also are made from tectonic plates just sliding past each other without building mountains). The fact is that in some cases mountains - or because of varieties in big lakes or masses of snow in the mountains giving varying weight - can cause earthquakes (source: New Scientist). (There f.x. are some more earthquakes in the northern part of the Earth during winter because of the weight of the snow, and there often is more snow in the mountains than in the low-land, producing imbalance - also here the source is New Scientist.)

044 31/10g: "- - - He (Allah*) scattered through it (Earth*) beasts - - -". See 11/7a above.

045 31/10h: "We (Allah*) send down rain from the sky - - -". See 11/7a above.

046 32/10i: "- - - (Allah*) produce on earth every kind of noble creature - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

047 31/11a: “Such is the Creation of Allah - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

048 31/11b: “Such is the Creation of Allah: now show Me (Allah*) what is there that others beside Him have created - - -.” Show us first if all the cheap words about everything Allah has created, are true – there only are lose and easy words anyone can use about his/her god(s), free of charge. With all the mistakes and contradictions, twisted words and logic and even some obvious lies (f.x. that miracles would not influence skeptics or proselytes) the Quran is built on, also this may be wrong.

This a typical sample of one of the Quran's techniques for debate: It put forth one or more claims without any kind of proof or documentation, pretends the claims are facts and debates from there - even though the claims often are fairy tales.

For good measure the opponents have to prove what they say (here: "Show me - - -") whereas from the Quran/Muhammad loose words and as loose claims are to be accepted - not one single claim regarding central points in the religion is proved. A lot of invalid "signs" (Quran-speak for proofs for Allah) and a few as invalid "proofs" are put forth, but that is all - not one real proof for anything essential in the entire religion).

049 31/11c: "- - - Transgressors - - -". "Quran-speak" for non-Muslims. A friendly name?

050 31/11d: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

051 31/11e: " - - - error - - -". See 2/2b above.

052 31/12a: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

053 31/12b: "We (Allah*) bestowed (in the past) wisdom on Luqman - - -". Luqman is a wise man in some Arab fairy tales. (A fact only Arabs knew - was Allah for the whole world in 614 - 617 AD, or was that idea a later one?) Besides: How come that Allah bestowed wisdom on a made up person from fairy tales? (One possible explanation is that Muhammad did not know that Luqman was a made up person - but what does that in case tell about Allah?) And what does it tell about the maker of the Quran, that he uses Arab fairy tales in his book?

054 31/12c: "- - - wisdom - - -". As for words related to "knowledge" see 26/83a above.

055 31/12d: "Show thy (Muslims'*) gratitude to Allah". Why? There is not proved he has done anything at all - a lot of loose claims and as lose words, but not one proof. Not even his very existence is proved.

##056 31/12e: "Any who is (so) grateful (towards Allah*)does so to the profits of his own soul - - -". What kind of profit? If the Quran is a made up book - and with all its errors, etc. it at least is from no god - also Islam is a made up religion representing the dressed up pagan god al-Lah. Not much profit neither for body or soul - except for the priests and other religious leaders, included Muhammad.

057 31/12f: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

058 31/12g: "- - - Allah is free of all wants - - -". At least if he does not exist.

059 31/12h: "- - - Allah is - - - worthy of all praise - - -". Read first "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" ( www.1000mistakes.com ) and see 80%(?) of the mistakes in the book, then the surahs from Medina so that you meet the real Allah and the real Islam - the mistakes, and the war and suppression religion. Then read the black sides of Islam's moral code, And finally the most unjust parts of the sharia laws. Then see if you agree.

060 31/13a: "- - - Luqman - - -". Luqman was a wise man from old Arab folklore and fairy tales. It tells something about the Quran and about Muhammad that he uses elements from fairy tales like if it were from true stories. See 31/12b above.

061 31/13b: "- - - Luqman - - -". A solid Arabism - see 4/13d above.

062 31/13c: "- - - Luqman - - -". A historical anomaly - in a double meaning.

063 31/13d: "Join not in worship (others (other gods*)) with Allah - - -". See 25/18a above.

064 31/13e: "- - - false worship is indeed the highest wrongdoing". Does this also go for Muslims if the Quran is a made up book? False against what god in case?

065 31/13f: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

066 31/13g: "- - - wrongdoing". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

067 31/14a: "And We (Allah) have enjoined on man (to be good) to parents - - -". This strongly contradicts 6/151 which among other things says: "- - - I (Muhammad*) will rehearse what Allah hath really prohibited you (Muslims*) from: - - - be good to your parents - - -". But on the other hand 6/151 is one of the (19?) places in the Quran where Muslim scholars generally agree on that there is a mistake in the book. ("1000 Mistakes in the Quran" lists 15 of them).

###068 31/14b: "Show gratitude to Me (Allah*) - - -". What for if the tales about him just are made up ones? - not one essential word in those tales is proved, and most of the tales are known to be from fairy tales etc.!

069 31/14c: "- - - to Me (Allah*) is (thy (humans'*) final) Goal". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere.

070 31/14d: "- - - to Me (Allah*) is (thy (humans'*) final) Goal". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells the final goal is to Yahweh, not to Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

071 31/15a: "- - - join worship with Me (Allah*) - - -". See 25/18a above.

072 31/15b: "- - - things of which thou (Muslim*) hast no knowledge". Here = other claimed gods than Allah.

073 31/15c: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally (nearly always) means religious and related knowledge. This later used to be called "Islamic knowledge" and was good. All other sciences were "foreign knowledge" and was bad - even violently persecuted at times (a fact never mentioned by Muslims boasting about how Islam saved the old Greek and Persian knowledge - which largely was done not because of Islam, but in spite of Islam). Also see 26/83a above.

074 31/15d: "- - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and judicial codes.

075 31/15e: "- - - those who turn to Me (Allah*) - - -". Muslims.

####076 31/15f: "- - - (- - - love) - - -". This word is very little used in the Quran - it may be symbolic that here it is inserted by the translator. And the few times it is used, it nearly without exception is used about Allah - like here - or about close relatives. Extremely different from NT. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets (if Muhammad had been a real prophet)? Do not ask silly questions.

077 31/15g: "- - - in the End the return of you all is to Me (Allah*) - - -". Often claimed, never documented.

078 31/15h: "- - - in the End the return of you all is to Me (Allah*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that the return will be to Yahweh, not to Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

079 31/15i: "- - - the End - - -". The Day of Doom.

080 31/15j: "- - - truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

081 31/16a: "- - - Luqman - - -". See 31/12b and 31/13a above,

082 31/16b: "- - - Luqman - - -". Even if Luqman is from fairy tales, he in this case is a historical anomaly, because once was the first time he was mentioned by a teller of tales, and to everybody living before that the name is such an anomaly - - - if it is true that there were copies - of the claimed "Mother Book" with tales about him even at that time, too. The Quran claims there have been copies of this claimed timeless book sent down to all times to the claimed prophets for Islam. You of course are free to believe this.

083 31/16c: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

084 31/16d: "- - - Allah will bring it forth - - -". This only is possible - possible - if Allah exists, and in addition is something with supernatural power - white or dark.

085 31/16e: "- - - Allah understands the finest mysteries - - -". Similar often claimed, but never proved.

086 31/16f: "- - - enjoin what is just - - -". See 31/16d just below.

087 31/16g: "- - - forbid what is wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all moral all ethics and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F. x. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defends this with that such behviour only is premitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defence - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder, etc. even more despiceable).

088 31/17a: "O my (Luqman's*) son!" See 31/16b above.

#089 31/17b: "- - - regular Prayer - - -". This demand for regular prayers - 5 times a day - was so essential for Allah (he even wanted more often according to Hadiths) that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. For Yahweh such formalism was so totally without any interest, that no similar rule - not even the idea - at all is mentioned in the entire Bible: Pray when there is a reason or a need or a wish. One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

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.)

090 31/17c: "- - - enjoin what is just - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and judicial codes.

091 31/17d: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

092 31/17e: "- - - bear with patient constancy - - -" = persevere - an expression non-Muslims should never forget the Quran is impressing and impressing on its followers..

###093 31/18a: "- - - Allah loveth not - - -". The word "love" is little used in the Quran, but this expression - "Allah does not love" - you meet here and there in the book. One of the extremely fundamental differences between NT and the Quran, between Yahweh and Allah, between Jesus and Muhammad. Anyone claiming there are close relationship between these two groups (NT/Yahweh/Jesus - the Quran/Allah/Muhammad) simply does not know what he/she is talking about - - - or is using an al-Taqiyya (a Muslim "lawful lie").

094 31/18b: "- - - Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster" But Muhammad often tells: "If only Allah would - - -". He could not change the arrogant boaster? Or was Muhammad just boasting when claiming "If only Allah would - - -" ?

095 31/18c: "- - - Allah loveth not any arrogant boaster". Is Muhammad an arrogant boaster when he is telling about all Allah has done and all he can do, if the tales are not true? - and they are not if Allah does not exist or if they for other reasons are made up, by dark forces or man (they are not from any god, as no god would be involved in a book as full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. as the Quran).

096 31/19: "- - - the harshest of sounds without doubt is the braying of the ass". When Muslims are punishing people for doubting in a god who never proved his existence, or in a self proclaimed prophet who never was able to prove his connection to a god - there only are strong, but loose words and as loose claims - is that a kind of "braying like an ass"?

097 31/20a: "Do ye (people*) not see that Allah has subjected to your (use) all things in the heavens and on earth - - -". No, we do not see that. For one thing not all things are for our use, and for another there is no indication anywhere for that Allah has done so. There even nowhere is a proof for his existence.

098 31/20b: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

099 31/20c: "- - - (Allah*) has made His bounties flow to you (Muslims*) in exceeding measures - - -". For one thing many a Muslim does not have material means and good life "in exceeding measures", and for another: Similar claim is put forth many places in the Quran, but never proved. On the contrary: Within a work or an area or both there normally there is a correlation between your toil and your outcome - your bounty. This indicates it not a god, but your/somebody's work and/or background which decides how big your bounty will be, not a god.

100 31/20d: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally (nearly always) means religious and related knowledge. This later used to be called "Islamic knowledge" and was good. All other sciences were "foreign knowledge" and was bad - even violently persecuted at times (a fact never mentioned by Muslims boasting about how Islam saved the old Greek and Persian knowledge - which largely was done not because of Islam, but in spite of Islam). Also see 26/83a above.

101 31/20e: "- - - those who dispute about Allah - - -". Non-Muslims.

102 31/20f: "- - - (non-Muslims are*) without knowledge (the Quran or similar*) and without guidance (Islam*) - - -". But as so much is wrong in the Quran, who may in reality be "on wrong road" of the three possible parts: Muslims? Non-Muslims without enough knowledge? Non-Muslims with enough knowledge to see that something is seriously wrong in the Quran and hence with Islam?

103 31/20g: "- - - guidance - - -". Not much true guidance in a book full of mistakes, etc. like the Quran. Also see 2/2b above.

104 31/20h: “- - - without a Book (like the Quran*) to enlighten them”. This implies that the Quran enlightens some ones – but a book with that many mistakes, etc., enlightens nobody. Also note how much value Muhammad puts on the written words - a book seems to be a proof for something in religion for him. But a book is as easy to falsify as a verbal tale.

105 31/21a: “- - - the (Revelations) - - -". Often claimed, but never proved - and even if it had been revelations: From whom or what? There is the TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) which modern medical science suspects. There are dark forces. There is Iblis - the Muslim Devil - dressed up like Gabriel (Muhammad had in case no chance to know the difference). Personally we are skeptical to the idea about Iblis - too many mistakes in the Quran even for a devil. But the possibility remains that the god did not permit him to make the Quran to waylay more humans, unless it contained so many mistakes that normally intelligent persons saw the trap. There is a cold, scheming brain - perhaps Muhammad's. The only thing which is sure, is that revelations as full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. like the Quran, is not from any god.

106 31/21b: “- - - the (Revelations) that Allah has sent down - - -”. Can an omniscient god have sent down texts with so many mistakes? Impossible. See 31/21a just above.

107 31/21c: "- - - they (opponents of Muhammad*) say - - -". A historical anomaly.

108 31/21d: "- - - they (opponents of Muhammad*) say: 'Nay, we shall follow - - -". How could this be reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said or happened? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

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

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

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

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

Also see 3/154e, 6/149a, 7/34a, 14/22b, and not least 27/22-26 above.

109 31/21e: "'Nay, we shall follow the ways that we found our fathers (following)' What! Even if it is Satan beckoning them to the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire?" But this is just what Muslims are doing - blindly and without real questions following the old beliefs.

"- - - it is in the nature of man to regard the beliefs which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones" - which explains in details why Muslims believe in spite of all facts proving something is seriously wrong with the religion.

(Also see 6/108b): “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”. ***Comment A6/92 (A6/93 in the 2008 English edition): “Lit., ‘thus godly have we made….”, etc. implying that it is in the nature of man to regard the belief which have been implanted in him from childhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones – with the result that a polemic against those beliefs often tends to provoke a hostile psychological reaction.” This is said as an explanation why Islam sometimes meets a negative reaction. But the book skips the fact that this also goes for Muslims: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over – or being mentally able to think over – even to true facts.

To repeat it:But this is just what Muslims are doing - blindly and without real questions following the old beliefs.

110 31/21f: "- - - the Penalty of the (Blazing) Fire?" Hell.

111 31/22a: "Whoever submits his whole self to Allah - - -", - runs a great risk, as long as Allah most likely does not exist. Even worse: The only claim for his existence is a story telling that a former pagan god is Allah, a story choke full of mistaken facts and other errors, and told by a man of very moderate moral standard and reliability.

112 31/22b: "- - - a doer of good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all inter human moral all ethics and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F. x. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defend this with that such behviour only is premitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defence - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder, etc. even more despiceable).

113 31/22c: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

114 31/22d: “- - - the most trustworthy hand-hold (the Quran and Allah*) - - -“. But a book with so many mistakes, etc. - and even some shining lies (like that miracles will not make a lot of people believe) – is not trustworthy. May be also this is wrong. Also see 31/22a above.

115 31/22e: "- - - with Allah rests the End - - -". The Day of Doom.

116 31/22f: "- - - with Allah rests the End and Decision of (all) affairs". There is no doubt when claiming that man has free will, the Quran is wrong: Allah decides all things - the predestination. (Actually this is said many places and in many ways throughout the Quran). If Allah decides all things, man has no free will. But how fair, how good, and how benevolent is Allah then when he punishes man for sins Allah has decided he shall make? And what is the effect of prayers if everything is predestined - included your prayer?

Either this or predestination is wrong. There is no way to combine the two statements - not even for an omnipotent god. (In the non-material realms of existence, there are things impossible also for gods.)

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.)

117 31/23a: "But if any reject Faith, let not his rejection grieve thee - - -." Once more this grave distinction between the Quran and NT: Here NT has "the lost sheep" (Matt. 18/12-14) and "the 11. hour/the vineyard" (Matt. 20/1-16).

118 31/23b: "But if any reject Faith, let his rejection not grieve thee - - -." Guess if this is contradicted and abrogated when Muhammad grew strong some 8 - 10 years later!! This verse is abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 28 abrogations).

119 31/23c: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam - only Islam is faith in the Quran.

120 31/23d: "To Us (Allah*) is their (peoples'*) return (at the Day of Doom*)". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere. And a claim believers on every religion make on behalf of their god(s).

121 31/23e: "To Us (Allah*) is their (peoples'*) return (at the Day of Doom*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that their return is to Yahweh, not to Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

122 31/23f: "- - - We (Allah*) shall tell them (non-Muslims*) the truth - - -". Once more the basic fact: This only may be possible if Allah exists (though it may be possible even if he in case belongs to the dark forces).

123 31/23g: "- - - the truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

124 31/23h: "- - - Allah knows well all that is in (men's) hearts". See 2/233h above.

125 31/24a: "We (Allah*) grant them (well off non-Muslims*) their pleasure for a while: in the end shall we drive them to their chastisement unrelenting." There is a saying: "Good luck is good, but others' bad luck is not too bad either" - especially when you are envious. Muhammad was a good knower of humans and utilized this psychological effect frequently. This also was Muhammad's standard explanation for why some "bad" persons had a good life whereas good Muslims sometimes had a bad one - Allah's unfathomable wisdom.

126 31/24b: "- - - chastisement unrelenting". Hell. Also see 3/77b above.

127 31/25a: “If thou ask them who it is that created the heavens (plural and wrong once more*) and the earth, they will certainly say, ‘Allah’”. Wrong. If they believe a god created this, they certainly will name their own god(s) - though in the old Arabia this might have been the polytheistic god al-Lah. (But here is a hidden, but clear Arabism: The likeness of the pronunciation of al-Lah and Allah hides the difference when spoken - just like when the Muslims use the word God instead of Allah speaking to non-Muslims - it on the surface camouflages some of the fundamental differences there are between Allah and God/Yahweh for people with little knowledge.)

It is very clear according to the Quran that the creator is Allah. You find that statement – but never a proof – at least in these verses: 10/3 – 11/7 – 21/30 – 21/32 – 23/17 – 25/59 – 30/22 - 32/4 – 35/1 – 39/5 – 41/11 – 41/12 – 50/38 – 51/47 – 79/28. Also see 11/7a and 21/56c above.

128 31/25b: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

129 31/25c: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

130 31/25d: "Praise be to Allah". See first 31/12b above.

131 31/25e: "But most of them (non-Muslim opponents of Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

132 31/25f: "But most of them (non-Muslim opponents of Muhammad*) understand not". Who understands? - he who understands something is wrong or he who believes blindly in the tales of a man of a dubious character and liking power and money and women? Many a false prophet has had a good life - and Muhammad never proved a comma about essential points. The easiest way to be cheated in most situations in life, is to be blind. and to believe blindly.

133 31/26a: "To Allah belong all things in heaven and earth - - -". Often claimed, never documented.

134 31/26b: "To Allah belong all things in heaven and earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells it belongs to Yahweh, not to Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

135 31/26c: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

136 31/26d: "- - - Allah is He (that is) free of all wants - - -". At least if he does not exist.

137 31/26e: "(Allah is*) worthy of all Praise". See first 1/1a above or 32/12b below, and see if you agree.

138 31/27a: "And if all the trees on earth were pens and the Ocean (were ink), with seven Oceans behind it to and to its (supply), yet would not the Word of Allah be exhausted (in writing) - - -". This borders on the panegyric to say the least of it - panegyrism is to be used with care, as it is a dangerous means which demands more artisanship than Muhammad has, to use it with successful result. And the claim in the sentence, is it fact or bluff?

139 31/27b: "- - - the Words of Allah - - -". The only known words claimed to be from Allah, is the Quran. But the Quran is not part of any god's words - too much is wrong.

140 31/27c: "- - - the Words of Allah - - -". Words from Allah does not exist unless Allah exists - but beware that "words of Allah" may exist even if Allah exists, but belongs to the dark forces.

141 31/27d: "- - - Allah is Exalted in Power - - -". Perhaps, but in case he never clearly has shown his power.

142 31/27e: “- - - Allah is - - - Full of wisdom.” Not if the Quran is representative for his wisdom.

143 31/28a: "And your - - - recreation is in no wise but as an individual soul - - -". Actually according to the Quran, you are not resurrected as a soul, but bodily, though in the shape of a young person. Nothing is said about what age babies and children have when resurrected. Also nothing is said about f.x. mentally retarded persons in Paradise.

144 31/28b: "- - - Allah is He Who hears and sees (all things)". This is an often repeated, but never proved warning to Muslims about on one hand to be good and obedient, or they will get punishment instead of joy, and on the other hand a reminder of that "be soothed" - the bad non-Muslims will get their well deserved punishment. Also see 2/233h above.

145 31/29a: "Seest thou(Muhammad/people*) not that Allah merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night - - -". If Islam does not prove - not claim or state, but prove - the opposite, it is nature which does this - one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad claimed for his god without any documentation or anything - - - just like any believer in any religion can do on behalf of his god(s). Words are that cheap.

146 31/29b: “- - - Allah merges - - - Day into Night - - -.” This is one of the many natural phenomena Muhammad hijacked for his god without any proof or documentation. It is totally void of any value as a proof for Allah unless it is proved that it really is Allah that spins the Earth in the light from the sun – the real reason for the alternation of day and night. Without such proofs, this just is another number of cheap, valueless words that anyone can use free of charge for his own god or gods. Also see 3/27 – 24/44 -25/62 – 31/29a (just above) – 35/12 – 39/5 – 40/61 – 41/37 – 45/5 57/6.

147 31/29c: “- - - He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law) - - -“. A nice proof for Allah - - - but only if it is proved that it really is he that moves them in their trajectories - and he who has made the laws of nature. Without such proofs, these just are cheap words in a valueless claim anyone can use totally free of charge – for Allah or for any other god, real or invented.

148 31/29d: “Seest thou not - - - that He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law), each running its course - - -.” Wrong. Relative to the Earth the sun is fixed and it is the Earth that is moving. (“Explanation” from some Muslims: We drop the fact that it here is talk about the relative movements between the Earth and the sun – obvious partly because it is talk about movement relative to the observer on Earth, and obvious from the fact that is talk about the movements of both the sun and the moon – and we drop the fact that the verse started with “Seest thou not - - -“, and find the obvious meaning in occurrences that man at that time simply could not see as they had no telescopes: Muhammad told about the sun’s course around the galaxy, they claim - once every 225 million years (new numbers from 2009 indicate that the stars are moving somewhat faster and hence that this number is a bit lower). Well, it could have been obvious, if they had explained why they settled for just that movement – because the galaxy is moving around in the Local Group (a small cluster of galaxies), which again is moving around in our local Super Group (cluster of a couple of thousands galaxies), which again is moving towards some enormous centre of gravity called The Great Attractor - - - which again may be on its way somewhere. (Muhammad clearly had not the faintest idea about the real connections between Earth, moon and sun – any god had known everything exactly. And Muslims are eager finding "explanations" so they do not have to see the mistakes.) Also see 33/29ab - 36/40 – 39/5 – 39/38 - 91/2

Are they just cherry picking the arguments they like here, and which seemingly are usable, no matter whether it really fits or not? Well, it would not be the first time.

149 31/29e: "- - - for a term appointed - - -". In the Quran this expression normally refers to a point of time predestined by Allah - in this case the Day of Doom. But according to (A13/5 - NB) it also may refer to the "mansions" or stages through which the sun and the moon move in time as well as in space. As mentioned before: The language in the Quran in reality often is far from distinct and clear.

150 31/29f: "- - - Allah is well acquainted with what ye do - - -". See 2/233h above.

**151 31/30a: “That is because Allah is the (only) Realty - - -”. Is Allah really a reality? All the tales about him derives from just one man - a man even canonized Islamic history tells for long time lived as a chief highwayman and from robbing and extortion (for kidnapped salesmen, etc.). A man initiating assassinations and murders on his opponents (f.x. Asma bint Marwan (female poet), al-Nadr, Abu Uzza, and Ocba after the battle of Badr, Abu Afaq (said to be over 100 years old), Kab ibn al-Ashraf, Ibn Sunayana, Othman bin Moghira, Abi ‘l Huqayq, and not to forget Kinana b. l-Rabi whom he tortured to death to find riches, and afterwards he personally raped Kinana's 17 year old, newlywed wife Safijja (Muhammad was nearly 60 then). A man who initiated mass murder - once some 700 helpless male prisoners, and made all their children and women slaves - one of them, the mentioned Safijja bint Huayay (and another time Rayhana bint Amr), for his own personal use), a rapist with permission from Allah for himself and all his men to rape (“have sexual connections with” to use more polite words) all female slaves and captives - girls and women - who were not pregnant (this tells something about Allah, too). A man who initiated raids and wars and got 20% or more of all spoils of war, included slaves (though not all for his personal use). And a man lusting for power - easy to see both from the Quran and from Hadith. And a man - and a god - entirely unable to produce one iota of a real proof for the tales. (Sources: Among others: Ibn Hisham and Ibn Ishaq - both most respected by Islam for biographies about Muhammad. Ibn Ishaq‘s “The Life of Muhammad“ is the most respected of the old ones of all Muhammad biographies in Islam - written for the caliph in Baghdad around 750 AD - and commented on around 900 Ad by Ibn Hisham. Plus the Quran and Hadiths – Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Only this man told the tales in the Quran - tales that on top of all have hundreds and hundreds of mistakes, at least hundreds of loose statements and hundreds of invalid “signs” and “profs”, etc. And loose statements, claims, and invalid “signs”/”proofs”, not to forget that most of his tales were from made up sources - apocryphal scriptures, legends, fairy tales, etc - ARE the hallmarks of cheats and deceivers, and of persons without true arguments.

A good and perfect man, according to Islam. If that is true, we hope never to meet a bad Muslim.

But a man normal people would say was dubious or stronger, and with a dubious morality. Is a dubious man with dubious morality and who is unable to produce the slightest proof, but for a lot of airy and partly illogical excuses for this inability, and even “signs” and “proofs” without value, plus at least some lies even in the Quran itself (like that real miracles would make no-one believe), is this such a man who tells just and only the undeniable and full truth?

And the only indication Islam has for the reality of Allah is the tales of that kind of a man. (This is in reality a main reason why Muhammad has to be pretended to be perfect and without any spot for Islam - if not the Quran is untrue and Islam a made up religion.)

152 31/30b: "- - - whatever else they (non-Muslims*) invoke besides Him (Allah*) - - -". See 25/18a above.

153 31/30c: "- - - whatever else they (non-Muslims*) invoke besides Him (Allah*), is Falsehood - - -". Well, even if we drop all other claimed gods, there still remains the problem Yahweh. If the old books tell the truth, he has proved his existence - and he is NOT the same god as Allah, like Muhammad liked to claim; fundamentally too different teachings.

154 31/30d: "- - - they (opponents of Muhammad*) invoke - - -". A historical anomaly.

155 31/30e: "- - - Falsehood - - -". See 2/2b above.

156 31/30f: "- - - Falsehood - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all moral all ethics and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F. ex. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defends this with that such behviour only is premitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defence - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder, etc. even more despiceable).

157 31/30g: "- - - Allah - He is Most High, Most Great". Similar claims you find many places in the Quran, but you never find a proof - inside or outside the book.

158 31/31a: "Seest thou (opponent of Muhammad*) not - - -". A historical anomaly.

159 31/31b: "Seest thou (opponent of Muhammad*) not that the ships sail through the Ocean by the Grace of Allah?". We only are able to see two things here: We see that the ships sailed through the oceans by means of the wind. And we see that there nowhere is proved that Allah has anything to do with the wind at all. Also see 11/7a above.

160 31/31c: “- - - His Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah or anything. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.

161 31/31d: "Verily - - -". See 2/2 above.

162 31/31e: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

163 31/31f: "- - - all who constantly persevere and give thanks (to Allah*)". Muslims.

164 31/31g: "- - - constantly persevere - - -". An expression non-Muslims should NEVER forget is imprinted, imprinted, imprinted on Muslims - persevere, and in the end you win, if for no other reason then because the "enemy" grows tired and give in. It has been correct too many times.

165 31/32a: "- - - when He (Allah*) has delivered them (some persons*) safely to land - - -". Not possible unless Allah exists.

166 31/32b: "- - - (right and wrong) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all inter human moral and all ethics, and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F.x. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defends this with that such behviour only is premitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defence - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder, etc. even more despiceable).

167 31/32c: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Signs - - -“. No omniscient and omnipotent god uses unreliable and/or unproven signs to prove his existence and power. Invalid as proofs for Allah.

168 31/32d: "But none reject Our (Allah's*) Signs except only a perfidious ungrateful (wretch)!" There is at least one grouper more: The ones who are intelligent enough and with enough knowledge to see that none of the so-called signs or proofs tell anything clear at all about Allah, unless it is proved he really causes the effect. Totally without any logical value, and something anyone can say about his/her god(s) free of charge.

169 31/32e: "- - - a perfidious ungrateful (wretch)!" A polite description of non-Muslims. Remember it - and similar expressions - next time a Muslim claims you are not treating him and his arguments with enough respect. One of Muhammad's many disgust inducing names for "unbelievers".

170 31/33a: "Do your (Muslims'*) duty to your Lord (Allah*)". No-one even can have a duty to Allah unless he exists and is a god - well, if he exists and belongs to the dark forces, at least the question is very open.

171 31/33b: "- - - a Day when no father - - - etc. - - -". = The Day of Doom.

172 31/33c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

173 31/33d: "Verily, the promise of Allah - - -". But does the Quran represent the promises of a god - Allah or anyone - when it is so full of mistakes that it is clear that no god has been involved in it? Strong proofs are needed in case.

174 31/33e: "Verily, the promise of Allah is true". It is, but only if Allah exists and if the Quran only tells the truth about him - but much is wrong in that book.

175 31/33f: "Verily, the promise of Allah is true". There never in all history and before has been one single proved case of Allah even giving a promise, not to mention keeping one. The best proof for this, is Islam's silence on this point.

176 31/33g: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

177 31/33h: "- - - nor let the Chief Deceiver deceive you about Allah." But if the Quran is a made up book - and at least it cannot be from a god with that many mistakes - who but Muhammad is then one of the chief deceivers? (If he is not himself deceived by something or somebody).

178 31/33i: "- - - the Chief Deceiver - - -". Iblis/the Devil.

179 31/33j: "- - - deceive - - - about Allah". Who is deceived - the blind believer or the one who sees that serious things are wrong in the Quran?

180 31/34a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

181 31/34b: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally (nearly always) means religious and related knowledge. This later used to be called "Islamic knowledge" and was good. All other sciences were "foreign knowledge" and were bad - even violently persecuted at times (a fact never mentioned by Muslims boasting about how Islam saved the old Greek and Persian knowledge - which largely was done not because of Islam, but in spite of Islam).

182 31/34c: "- - - the Hour - - -". The Day of Doom.

183 31/34d: "It is He (Allah*) Who sends down rain - - -". See f.x. 11/7a or 31/29a above.

184 31/34e: "- - - (it is Allah*) Who knows what is in the wombs". One more of Muhammad's never proved claims.

185 31/34f: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

186 31/34g: “Verily, with Allah is full knowledge and he is acquainted (with all things)”. All the mistakes in the Quran prove the opposite - - - or that someone else made the Quran.

187 31/34h: “Verily, with Allah is full knowledge and he is acquainted (with all things)”. See 2/233h above.

188 31/34i: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
