1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 32 -- As-Sajdah (The prostration)

Revelation: Mecca, 621 - 622 AD

(See general comments on Surahs here: Introduction)


 

The quotes and comments

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

002 32/1: "Alfi Lam Mim". At the beginning of many surahs you find 2 - 5 Arab letters - so-called abbreviated letters. No-one understands why they are there or what they mean. In some cases, though, may be or may be not the letters make a word and has a meaning, but if it has, the meaning has no connection to the surah it heads. Clear language?

003 32/2a: “(This is) the revelation of the Book (the Quran) - - -.” It is not a revelation from an omniscient god at least – too many mistakes. (But perhaps from dark forces or humans? Actually we personally are skeptical to that it is made by dark forces like Iblis/the Devil, because even a devil would not make so many mistakes - he would be found out and loose credence sooner or later. This unless the god demanded it made like that to make it easy for humans to see and evade the trap.) - or from an illness like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like modern medical science suspects? Or from a cold, scheming brain?)

004 32/2b: “(This is) the revelation of the Book (the Quran*) in which there is no doubt - - -.” And all the same Islam and Muslims doubt very much of its words and tell that this and this and this must be allegories - - - especially if it is the only way to explain away errors.

005 32/2c: “(This is) the revelation of the Book (the Quran*) in which there is no doubt - - -.” Because of the quality of the Quran, there is very much and very good reasons for doubt about its contents. What there is no doubt about, is that no god has been involved in the making or delivery of that book - not to mention reveres it in his "home".

006 32/2d: "- - - no doubt - - -". See 2/2b above.

007 32/2e: “- - - the Book (the Quran*) from the Lord (Allah*) of the Worlds (plural and wrong).” Wrong. No omniscient god makes a book with that many mistakes, etc., not to mention revere it in his “home” as the claimed "Mother Book" - see 13/39b above and 43/4 and 85/21-22 below.

008 32/2f: “- - - the Lord (Allah*) of the Worlds (plural and wrong).” Often claimed, never proved. It is not even proved that Allah is reality.

009 32/2g: “- - - the Lord (Allah*) of the Worlds (plural and wrong).” Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the lord of the world, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

010 32/2h: “- - - the Worlds.” Once more a reference to the 7 Earths in the Quran. Wrong. See 65/12 below.

011 32/2i: (YA3629): "By the time of the Prophet (Muhammad*) the earlier Book of Revelation (the Bible*) had been corrupted by human ignorance or selfishness or fraud, or misinterpreted or lost all together". The interesting point here is that the main statement behind this sentence is not true, and all the same top Muslim writers treat it like a proved fact. There were fringe sects - some of them quite big - who disagreed and debated and even made up apocryphal scriptures - just like in Islam later (f. x. made up Hadiths). But the old scriptures lived on, and neither science nor Islam has ever found these proved corrupted or falsified. The oldest copies we know are just like today's ones, except for minor varieties which normally happens when books are copied by hand. These are well known facts. All the same Muslim scholars write things like this - and with a straight face. It tells something about Muslim scholars and about honesty within Islam.

012 32/3a: "- - - they (opponents of Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

013 32/3b: "He (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

014 32/3c: "He (Muhammad*) has forged it (the Quran*)?" From the very beginning there have been persons who have seen there were reasons for doubt about the Quran's authenticity.

015 32/3d: “Nay, it (the Quran*) is the Truth - - -”. No. At best it is partly the truth - too many mistakes, contradictions, etc. Also see 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below..

016 32/3e: “Nay, it (the Quran*) is the Truth from thy Lord (Allah*) - - -”. Can a book with that many mistakes and “signs” and “proofs” without logical value really be composed by an omniscient god and be the revered “Mother Book” in Heaven? No.

017 32/3f: “- - - thou (Muhammad*) mayst admonish - - -". With a book full of errors, etc. and with a partly immoral moral code?

018 32/3g: “- - - thou (Muhammad*) mayst admonish a people to whom no warner has come before thee - - -.” But:

2/125-129: These verses reminds Muslims about that according to the Quran both Abraham and Ishmael lived and worked in Mecca (according to the Quran) – and both were prophets and messengers, still according to the Quran. But according to science: If Abraham has ever lived, he lived some 2000 – 1800 BC – which means centuries before Moses, and millennia before Muhammad - he "admonished" in Mecca before Muhammad (at least according to the Quran).

10/47: “To every people (was sent) a messenger - - -.” Homo Sapiens – also called Modern Man – developed most likely in East Africa some 160ooo – 200ooo years ago, and crossed – and occupied – the land bridge between Africa and Asia (= the Middle East) may be 100ooo years ago. If every people had got Messengers, how come that Sinai/Arabia/etc. had not got one for nearly 100ooo years – not until Moses some 3300 years ago or Abraham perhaps 3800 - 4ooo years ago?

16/36: “For We (Allah*) assuredly sent amongst every People a Messenger.” See 10/47 just above.

35/24: “- - - and there never was a people, without a warner having lived among them (in the past).” A very clear contradiction.

Besides there were prophets like Hud, Salih and Shu’ayb who lived (according to the Quran) some generations after Noah, but long before Moses, not to mention Muhammad.

(Min. 6 contradictions.)

019 32/3h: "- - - in order that they (people*) may receive guidance (from the Quran*)". No-one receives real guidance from a book full of mistakes, etc.

020 32/3i: "- - - guidance - - -". See 2/2 above.

021 32/4a: “It is Allah Who has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and all between them - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

022 32/4b: “It is Allah Who has created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth, and all between them, in six Days - - -”. One simple and polite remark: Very wrong. And another: A contradiction to the verses in the Quran which tell 2 + 4 + 2 = 8 days.

41/9-12: These verses tell that Allah took 2 + 4 + 2 days = 8 days to create everything. (Muslims tries to tell that the first 2 days are included in the 4 days, but just read this yourself and see – what they wish you to believe is not what the Quran says. It says very clearly 2 days for one job, 4 for the next, and 2 for the last = 8 days. Some also wants you to believe that day in Arab = eon. For one thing it is not a correct translation, and for another read 2/117 and see if Allah should need 6 – 8 eons.)

Also strongly contradicting science.

023 32/4c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

024 32/4d: "- - - firmly established Himself (Allah*) on the Throne (of authority) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is placed there, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

025 32/4e: “- - - ye (Muslims/people*) have none, besides Him (Allah*), to protect or intercede (for you) - - -.” But:

9/71: “The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another - - -.” Men and women hardly are in the same league as a god – but they are protectors according to the Quran.

It also at least one place is said angels protect you.

And not least there is question about Yahweh - Jesus told he was a helper, at least for believers in him, Yahweh.

026 32/4f: "- - - will ye (Muslims/persons*) not receive admonition?" Admonition? - via a book so full of mistakes that it clearly is from no god?

027 32/5a: "He (Allah*) rules (all) affairs - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says it is Yahweh who does this, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

028 32/5b: "He (Allah*) rules (all) affairs from the heavens (plural and wrong) - - -". Allah decides - predestines - everything.

029 32/5c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

030 32/5d: "- - - in the end will (all affairs) go up to Him (Allah*) - - -". This may refer either to the Day of Doom - "in the end" - or to the "fact" that Allah according to the Quran predestines everything, and thus decides everything - the Quran frequently is not very clear, in stark contradiction to what Muslims and Islam claim.

031 32/5e: "- - - a Day - - -". In this case the Day of Doom.

032 32/5f: “- - - on a Day, the space whereof will be (as) a thousand years of your reckoning.” But:

70/4: “- - - unto Him (Allah*) in a day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:” There is some difference between 50ooo years and 1000 years.

033 32/6a: “- - - the Knower of all things (Allah*) - - -“. Something is seriously wrong: Allah is not the knower of all things if the Quran is representative for his knowledge.

034 32/6b: “- - - the Knower of all things (Allah*), hidden and open - - -“. See 2/233h above.

035 32/6c: "(Allah is*) the Exalted (in power) - - -". At least he has never proved his power - in 1400 years.

036 32/6d: "(Allah is*) Merciful - - -". We are back to the old and obvious tirade: The surahs from Medina, the dark part of the Islamic code of moral and ethics, the unjust paragraphs of the sharia laws - read them and see if you agree.

037 32/7a: “He (Allah*) Who made everything which He created - - -". See 21/56c above.

038 32/7b: “He (Allah*) Who made everything which He created most Good - - -“. Wrong. We could have had better resistance concerning illnesses, our bodies could have been able to make more of the vitamins themselves, our brain could have been better – f.x. ability to think about 2-3 things at a time, or learning more easily – just to mention a few points. Good, but far from most good. Contradicted by among others zoological facts.

039 32/7c: “He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay”. Wrong. Man was not created from clay. See 6/2b above.

040 32/8a: “And (Allah*) made his (man’s) progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised - - -”. Only half the truth. Muhammad believed the semen was a kind of seed planted in the woman – he did not know about the egg cell. Any god had known. Then who made the Quran?

041 32/8b: "- - - a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised - - -”. = Semen.

042 32/9a: "But He (Allah*) fashioned him (Adam*) in due proportions - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

043 32/9b: "But He (Allah*) fashioned him (Adam*) in due proportions, and breathed into him something of His spirit (= life*)." A bit different from what natural science says.

044 32/9c: "And He (Allah*) gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding) - - -". See 11/7a and 21/56c above.

045 32/9d: "- - - little thanks do ye (people*) give". Because of a very good reason: The way the beginning of man is described in the Quran cannot be true - at least not all the different ways it is claimed to have happened. (There is claimed to have been just one Adam, but there are given a dozen different explanations of how he was created.)

46 32/10a: "And they (opponents of Muhammad*) say - - -". A historical anomaly.

047 32/10b: "And they (opponents of Muhammad*) say: 'What! - - -". How could this reliably be 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.

048 32/10c: “- - - a Creation renewed?” Muhammad told we are to be recreated bodily at the Day of Doom. He also argues that if Allah is able to create you from semen (and egg – though the egg cell was unknown to Muhammad and to the Quran) he is able to recreate you bodily after you have become dust and juices. May be – but there is a difference between to create the natural way, and to recreate against strong entropy (a word from physics which refers to chaos) – the logic therefore is lacking. Also see 7/258e above.

049 32/10d: “- - - a Creation renewed?” According to Islam the old pagan Arabs did not believe in resurrection. This may or may not be true, but what is sure is that they knew that other religions had such beliefs, so no matter the thought was not unknown to them. But Muhammad claimed that they would be recreated bodily - necessary as in the Quran's Paradise most pleasures are bodily ones - and this might have been difficult to accept.

050 32/10e: "- - - they (opponents of Muhammad*) deny - - -". See 32/10b above.

051 32/10f: "- - - the meeting with their Lord - - -". The Day of Doom.

052 32/11a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

053 32/11b: “The Angel of Death (singular* and obviously a name – capital letters*) - - - will (duly) take your souls - - -.” But:

39/42: “It is Allah who takes the souls (of men) at death - - -.”

47/27: “- - - the angels (plural*) take their souls at death - - -.”

(2 contradictions.)

054 32/11c: "- - - then shall you be brought back to your (peoples') Lord (Allah*)". Often claimed, never proved - it is not even proved that Allah exists or that he is anybody's Lord at all.

055 32/11d: "- - - then shall you be brought back to your (peoples') Lord (Allah*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells you will be brought back 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.

056 32/12a: "If only thou (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

057 32/12aa: "- - - the guilty ones - - -". See 2/2b above.

058 32/12b: "- - - the guilty ones - - -". 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 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).

059 32/12c: "- - - the guilty ones - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims - though in this case also included bad Muslims.

060 32/12d: "- - - righteousness - - -". See the remark to 32/12b above.

061 32/12e: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

062 32/13a: “If We (Allah*) had so willed - - -". See 10/99 or 14/19d above.

063 32/13b: “If We (Allah*) had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance - - -”. This only could be true if Allah exists and is a god.

064 32/13c: “If We (Allah*) had so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance - - -”. Not from the Quran - too many errors, etc.

065 32/13d: "- - - true guidance - - -". See 2/2b and 7/192a above and 16/107b above.

066 32/13e: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b, 13/1g, and 40/45 above. Especially words like "true" and other absolutes in reality often only are claims.

#067 32/13f: “If We (Allah*) so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, ‘I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together’”. One thought: May be it is true Allah has arranged also Hell like a number of Muslim scholars believe (their logic is that Hell could not exist without Allah's permission, if Allah is omnipotent). Another thought: No matter if he has or not – as long as he wants to fill Hell with living beings, he is no benevolent god. Yet another thought: Can the Quran be explained by that the god permitted f. x. a devil (Iblis?) to make a "holy" book to deceive more humans, on the condition that it contained so much wrong that intelligent persons had a fair chance to see the trap?

068 32/13g: "- - - the Word from Me (Allah*) - - -". There never was proved there ever was a word from Allah - it even is an impossibility if he does not exist.

069 32/13h: "- - - the Word from Me (Allah*) will come true - - -". There never on this side of Adam was a proved case of Allah's word coming true, and definitely not a case where it came true as a result of Allah's decision or deed.

070 32/13i: "- - - Jinns - - -". Jinns are beings borrowed from Arab folklore and the earlier pagan Arab religion – according to Islam they are created by Allah from smokeless fire, whereas angles are created from light. They may be roughly shaped like humans as Islam have - or at least had - laws for marriage between jinns and humans. To our knowledge no such marriage has taken place till now.

Jinn often is translated with "spirit", but they have to be material beings - if not they could not marry humans, but more obvious: To feel the bodily pain of the fire in Hell, one has to have a body.

071 32/13j: “If We (Allah*) so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, ‘I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together’”. Here are two more differences between Yahweh and Allah:

Yahweh did not have this choice because man really had free will.

Yahweh tries to get as many as possible to Heaven (Luke 15/8-10 + 15/11-31 and Matt. 18/12-14 + 20/8/13). Allah has early made a conscious decision to fill Hell with "Jinns and men altogether".

The same god? Impossible.

072 32/13k: “If We (Allah*) so willed, We could certainly have brought every soul its true guidance: but the Word from Me will come true, ‘I will fill Hell with Jinns and men all together’”. Many Muslim scholars believe Allah is the real ruler also of Hell, as Iblis could not run it against the wish and will of Allah, as Allah is omnipotent. This verse indicates that this may be correct. What does it in case tell about Allah?

073 32/14a: "- - - the Meeting of this Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

074 32/14b: "- - - the Penalty of Eternity - - -". Hell.

075 32/14c: "- - - the Penalty of Eternity for your (evil) deeds!" Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Remember that among the most evil deeds you could do, was and is to refuse to go to war to strengthen Islam, rob other people and give Muhammad his share, and suppress, enslave or kill fellow humans. Admittedly it is said that this only could be done in a jihad - holy war - and Muslims are very quick to say so. But as there hardly was one single armed conflict throughout these 1400 years where Muslims were one or other parts, which was not a jihad, this just becomes a meaningless excuse. And honestly to do it in the name of one’s god, makes both the deed and the god more disgusting and immoral.

But also see 3/77b above.

076 32/14d: "- - - the Penalty of Eternity for your (evil) deeds!". But f.x. 6/128d, 11/107b, 43/74c, 50/13c, and 78/23 indicate that Hell perhaps is not quite forever - at least not for Muslims who have been bad enough to end there.

077 32/14e: "- - - (evil) deeds - - -". See 32/12b and 32/14c above.

078 32/14f: "- - - (evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

##079 32/15a: "Only those believe in Our (Allah's) Signs, who, when they are recited to them, fall down in adoration, and celebrate the praises of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Pure demand for blind belief - remember that there does not exist one single "sign" inside or outside the Quran which clearly is from Allah or proves him. (Even the Muslim scholars of today admit it is impossible to prove Allah - this only Allah can do (like Yahweh did and like Jesus did by means of supernatural acts in the old times, if either the Bible or the Quran speaks the truth on those points)).

080 32/15b: “- - - Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39a above.

081 32/15c: "- - - the praises of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

082 32/15d: "- - - nor are they (Muslims*) (ever) puffed up with pride". It is not difficult to debate this claim. Another claim which is indisputable is that some of those you meet on the net, are puffed up with haughtiness, superiority complex and standard slander. Also the Arab Muslims during the first centuries reckoned themselves to be better than other Muslims, a fact which resulted in strife.

083 32/16a: "- - - spend (in charity) - - -". The demand for charity is a plus for Islam. This moral principle is marred, though, by two facts:

The moral incitement for giving charity, is the wish for merit in Heaven, less than empathy with the ones in difficulties.

To help your nearest gives just as much merit as helping strangers. Then it is more tempting to help one's nearest.

084 32/16b: "- - - the sustenance which We (Allah*) have bestowed on them (Muslims*)". Allah gives you everything - rather similar to 11/7a above.

085 32/17a: "No person knows what delights of the eye are kept hidden (in reserve) for them (in Paradise*) - - -". See 10/9f above.

086 32/17b: "- - - eye - - -". Eternity.

087 32/17c: "- - - a reward for their (good Muslims') (good) Deeds". Included robbing, suppressing, slave taking, and killing. See 32/14 above.

088 32/17d: "- - - a reward for their (good Muslims') (good) Deeds". If the Quran tells the full and only truth.

089 32/17e: "- - - (good) Deeds". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

090 32/18a: “Is then the man who believes (Muslim*) no better than the man who is rebellious and wicked (the non-Muslim*)? Not equal are they.” This really is the obvious answer which gives itself to this rhetoric question. Do you not agree?

091 32/18b: “Is then the man who believes (Muslim*) no better than the man who is rebellious and wicked (the non-Muslim*)? Not equal are they.” Muhammad forgets (?) to mention that there are many good humans also among non-Muslims - neither rebellious, nor wicked. "Forgotten" on purpose?

092 32/18c: “Is then the man who believes (Muslim*) no better than the man who is rebellious and wicked (the non-Muslim*)? Not equal are they.” But what about him who sees that many things are wrong in the Quran, and that thus the book cannot be from a god? - the seeing is better than the blind according to the Quran.

093 32/18d: "- - - the man who believes - - -". Muslim.

064 32/19a: "For those who believe and do righteous deeds are Gardens as hospitable homes, for their (good) deeds". If Allah exists. If he is behind the Quran. If the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth.

095 32/19b: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims.

096 32/19c: "- - - righteous - - -". See the remark to 32/12b above. Also beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

097 32/19d: "- - - Gardens as hospitable homes - - -". Paradise. See 10/9f above.

098 32/19e: "- - - (good) deeds - - -". See the remark to 32/12b and 32/19c above, and remember especially that the best of all good deeds according to the Quran, is to make raids and wars for stealing and raping and killing and enslaving for Allah - - - and for Muhammad and his successors.

099 32/20a: "Those who are rebellious and wicked - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

100 32/20b: "- - - their (non-Muslim's*) abode will be the Fire - - -". See 3/77b above.

101 32/20c: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.

102 32/20d: "- - - the Penalty of the Fire - - -". See 3/77b above.

103 32/20e: "- - - false". See 2/2b above.

104 32/21a: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

105 32/21b: "- - - the supreme Penalty - - -". Hell.

106 32/22a: “And who does more wrong than one to whom are recited the Signs of his Lord (Allah*), and who then turns therefrom?” There is nothing wrong in being skeptical to a religion built only on a book with many mistakes and not one single valid proof, but with many “signs” and “proofs” without any value or even 100% wrong, which may have the effect of cheating uneducated or not intelligent persons - and on top of all told only by a man whose honesty normal, intelligent people would suspect because of the morality of his deeds and some of his words – when a man preaches good, but does and demands many things bad, we any day believe in his deeds and demands more than in his words.

107 32/22b: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

108 32/22c: "- - - Signs of his Lord (Allah*) - - -". There does not exist one single sign in this world - inside or outside the Quran - clearly from Allah. Also see 2/39b above.

109 32/22d: "- - - his Lord (Allah*) - - -". Allah is the lord of no-one if he does not exist, and definitely not of followers of Yahweh if Yahweh exists.

110 32/22e: "Verily - - -". As so much is wrong in the Quran, few things can be deemed a verity unless there are additional proofs.

111 32/22f: "- - - those who transgress - - -". "Quran-speak" for non-Muslims normally. One of Muhammad's many disgust inducing names for non-Muslims.

112 32/22g: "- - - (due) Retribution". See 3/77b above.

113 32/23a: "We (Allah*) did indeed aforetime give the Book to Moses - - -". According to the Bible, what was given to Moses, was given by Yahweh, not by Allah - the teachings of the two are too different to that the two can be the same god, no matter how strongly Islam claims this - without any documentation as normal for Islam. 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.

114 32/23b: "We (Allah*) did indeed aforetime give the Book to Moses - - -". Those books (5 - normally called the Books of Moses) were according to science written 5 to 8 centuries after Moses was dead. (He got the 10 Commandments and was told the law only, according to the Bible – and being 1000 years older and built on real traditions, the Bible is more reliable on this point. The law itself may be from the time of Moses, but the books no. We may add, though, that he wrote down the law he got from Yahweh (5. Mos. 31/9), and this writing sometimes was called "The Book of Covenance" - it was not given from the god and not identical to the younger "Books of Moses".) 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.

115 32/23c: "We (Allah*) did indeed aforetime give the Book to Moses - - -". We may add here that Muhammad claimed the old prophets, included Moses, god a book similar to the Quran (both claimed to be a copy of the timeless "Mother Book" in Heaven), but that it later was falsified into the Bible (both science and Islam later have thoroughly proved the claim that the Bible is falsified, is wrong).

116 32/23d: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

117 32/23e: (YA3656): "Moses had, revealed to him, a Law, a sharia (!*), which was to guide his people in all practical affairs of their life. Jesus, after him, was also inspired by Allah (by Yahweh according to the Bible*): but his Injil or Gospel contained only general principles and not a Code (here in the meaning Law) or sharia. The Prophet (Muhammad*) was the next one to have a sharia - - -". What the honorable Abdullah Yusuf Ali "fails" to mention is that the laws and rules in the Bible, and especially so the "general principles" given by Jesus, are so different - and so fundamentally different - from the ones in the Quran, that they are not from the same god, not unless he is mentally very ill.

**118 32/23f: (YA3657): “We (Allah*) did indeed aforetime give the Book to Moses: be not then in doubt of its reaching (thee) - - -.” But the Arab pronoun “hi” can be translated either “its” or “his”. In the last case the meaning here is: “- - - be not then in doubt of his (Moses’*) reaching (thee) (it must in case mean Moses’ thoughts or example or deeds*) - - -“.

#An interesting extra piece: In connection with mentioning the Book of Moses, A. Yusuf Ali refers to “- - - his (Moses’) Injil or Gospel - - -.” (YA3656). The Gospel (or really Gospels – there are 4) are the history of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, and consequently could not be written before after Jesus’ death (he died 33 years old). Science tells the Exodus – if it happened – took place ca. 1235 BC and both the Bible and the Quran say he (Moses) got the Commandments (and the Quran adds the book, whereas the Bible tells he was just told the law – and only that – and that he himself wrote it down later - sometimes this was called "The Book of Covenant"). If Moses got the Gospels together with the 10 Commandments, he got them some 1268 years before they could be written. Also no-one outside Islam, included science, has ever run across even the weakest trace of Moses’ Gospels.

119 32/23g: "- - - We (Allah) made it (the book Muhammad claimed Allah gave Moses*) a guide for the Children of Israel". There is little doubt that the god of the Jews was Yahweh, not Allah.

120 32/23h: "- - - We (Allah) made it (the book Muhammad claimed Allah gave Moses*) a guide for the Children of Israel". There is little doubt that what became the guide for the Jews, was the laws which later was incorporated in the Torah. Laws which on some central points have little similarity to the Quran. 

121 32/24a: "And We (Allah*) appointed, from among them (the Jews*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

122 32/24b: "And We (Allah*) appointed, from among them (the Jews*), leaders - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that the involved god was Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

123 32/24c: "- - - (the Jews were given*) guidance under Our (Allah's) command - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that the involved god was Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

124 32/24d: "- - - guidance - - -". See 2/2b above.

125 32/24e: "- - - persevere with patience - - -". An expression no non-Muslim should ever forget is imprinted and imprinted on Muslims - persevere and you win in the end, because the opponent or enemy grows tired. Especially democracies too easily grows tired, at least if they do not fight with their back against the wall.

126 32/24f: “- - - Our (Allah's*) Sign(s) - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.

127 32/25a: "Verily - - -", See 2/2b and 32/22 above.

128 32/25b: "- - - in Matters wherein they (the Jews*) differ (among themselves)". It is unclear what matters here are meant. Some Muslims say it is the question about whether or not there is a next life, but even though OT tells little about Heaven, there is no doubt about the Jews' belief in a next life. This also is clear even from NT (f.x. Matt. 22/23-29).

129 32/26a: "Does it not teach them a lesson, how many generations We (Allah*) destroyed before them (people*) - - -". Allah is a good, benevolent and mild god as you see.

130 32/26b: "Does it not teach them a lesson, how many generations We (Allah*) destroyed before them (people*), in whose dwellings they (now) go to and fro?" There were ruins and there were empty houses, and hamlets, and villages and towns in and around Arabia. Muhammad claimed they were empty because the inhabitants had been killed by Allah because of sins. (And the Arabs had taken over some of their houses, etc.)

131 32/26c: “Does it not teach them (non-Muslims*) a lesson, how many generations We (Allah*) destroyed before them, in whose dwellings they now go to and fro? Verily, in that are Signs - - -”. This had been signs if it was clear that it really was Allah who had destroyed them.

132 32/26d: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

133 32/26e: "- - - do they (skeptics*) not then listen?" They do, but they also are able to think and not just accept blindly. And using not only their ears, but also their knowledge and their brain, they see that much is wrong in the Quran and hence in Islam - and that the book cannot be from any god, as no omniscient god makes mistakes wholesale style..

134 32/27a: "And do they not see that We (Allah*) do drive the rain - - -". Once more a natural phenomenon claimed for Allah without the slightest proof - just like priests of pagan gods do as cheaply. A question: If the Quran is a made up book, is then Islam a pagan religion?

135 32/27b: "Have they (skeptics*) not the vision?" On the contrary - too many skeptics have vision instead of blind belief, and see that something is seriously wrong with the Quran, and that it thus cannot have come from a god.

136 32/28a: "They (opponents of Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.<(p>

137 32/28b: "They (opponents of Muhammad*) say: 'When will - - -'". See 32/10b above.

138 32/28c: "- - - this Decision - - -". The Day of Doom.

139 32/28d: "- - - the truth". See 2/2b above.

140 32/29a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

141 32/29b: “On the Day of Decision, no profit will be to the Unbelievers if they (then) believe!” Take it easy and be soothed, the unbelievers will be punished in the next life – if not in this. Even if they try to save themselves in the end, there will be no pardon. Judgment will hit them. Of course it is not possible to prove this, but there are many words saying so. Many words only.

142 32/29c: “- - - the Day of Decision - - -". The Day of Doom.

143 32/29d: "- - - the Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

144 32/30a: “So turn away from them (the non-Muslims*) - - -". A clear message - one of the many telling Muslims to stay away from non-Muslims and not mingle with them, because they are no good.

145 32/30b: “So turn away from them (the non-Muslims*), and wait - - -.” When Muhammad grew more powerful, there was little waiting. The rest of the Arabian peninsula mainly was turned Muslim by the sword – and some by “gifts”/bribes and promises of looted riches – all of which demanded changes in the religion (or was it the other way around, initiated by a god who found his original religion was not good enough – or too little blood and human tragedy?) which caused contradictions between the old and the new version of Islam – and also abrogations naturally. This verse is contradicted 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).

146 32/30c: “So turn away from them and wait - - -.” As said just above: When Muhammad grew more powerful, there was little waiting. The rest of the Arabian peninsula mainly was turned Muslim by the sword – and some by “gifts” and promises of looted riches – all of which demanded changes in the religion (or was it the other way around, initiated by a god who found his original religion was not good enough – or too little blood and human tragedy?) which caused contradictions between the old and the new version of Islam – and also abrogations naturally. This verse is abrogated – made invalid - 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 in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran - www.1000mistakes.com . (At least 28 abrogations).
