1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 35 -- Al-Fatir (The Originator)

Revelation: Mecca, 614 - 615 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 "- - - Allah - - - Most Gracious, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

003 35/1a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a and see if you agree.

004 35/1b: “- - - Allah, who created (out of nothing) the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -”. In a way it is nearly correct that the heaven as we see it, is made of nearly nothing, as an optical illusion is made from photons = nearly nothing (but Muhammad was very wrong all the same, as he/the Quran believed the heavens consisted of something material). But the Earth definitely is not made from nothing - not even if one refers to Big Bang. And Muhammad's heavens also were material ones – if not f.x. the stars could not be fastened to one of the heavens). We may add that the 7 heavens is a construction taken from old Greek and Persian wrong astronomy – they used 7 invisible, but strong heavens to try to explain the celestial movements. A fact Muslims never mention.

005 35/1c: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

006 35/1d: "- - - angels, messengers with wings - - -". Contradicts verses telling only men were messengers, at least to men. (A couple of places say jinns to jinns.)

007 35/1e: "- - - angels, messengers with wings - - -". Cherubim had, seraphs had, but for angels wings are not mentioned in the Bible. (In Christian art angels got wings in the 3. century only.)

008 35/1f: "- - - angels, messengers with wings - two or three or four pairs - - -". Highly unlikely - extra pairs of wings just would mean turbulence and drag, not lift or speed (to give Gabriel 600 wings like Muhammad does one place, is aerodynamically nonsense). Any god had known, but Muhammad of course knew nothing about aerodynamics. Then who made the Quran?

009 35/1g: "He (Allah*) adds to Creation as He pleases - - -". An interesting piece of information, as there nowhere is proved that Allah neither creates (see 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c above), nor resurrects (see 7/158i above).

010 35/1h: "- - - Allah has power over all things". Perhaps - but he has never in a clear way shown he claimed power. Never. Yahweh has if either the Bible or the Quran tells the truth, but never Allah. (In spite of Islam's claims those two gods are not the same one - the teachings are too different, and science has proved that the handy, but never documented way out Muslims always use - the claim that the Quran is falsified - is wrong.

011 35/2a: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

012 35/2b: "What Allah - - - doth bestow on mankind there is none that can withhold: what He doth withhold, there is none can grant - - -". Allah decides.

013 35/2c: "What Allah - - - doth bestow on mankind there is none that can withhold: what He doth withhold, there is none can grant - - -". This is true only if Allah exists, if he is a major god, if there is no other god - f.x. Yahweh (whom the Quran admits exists, though they wrongly mix him with Allah) - and if the Quran describes him and his power correctly - in a book full of mistakes, etc.

014 35/2d: "(Allah is*) the Exalted in Power". See f.x. 35/1h above.

015 35/2e: “(Allah is*) Full of Wisdom.” Not if the Quran is representative for his knowledge and wisdom – too many mistakes, etc.

016 35/3a: "Call to mind the grace of Allah unto you!" This may or may not be true, but only if Allah exists and is a major god. Worse: There has never been documented an actual case. 

017 35/3b: "- - - the grace of Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

018 35/3c: "Is there a Creator, other than Allah - - -". Is Allah a creator? Yes, is Allah a creator? There are lots of loose claims and as loose statements about him, but not one atom is proved or documented. And claims for blind belief are the hallmarks of cheats and deceivers - and sometimes politicians. Also see 6/2b, 7/158i, 11/7a and not least 21/56c above.

019 35/3d: "Is there a Creator, other than Allah - - -". Yes, according to the Bible there is - Yahweh. The old Jewish and Christian god even Islam admits - rightly or wrongly - exists, though they wrongly mix him up with Allah.

020 35/3e: "(Only Allah can*) give you sustenance from heaven or earth - - -". This never proved claim is correct only if Allah exists, is a major god, is correctly described in the Quran, and if there is no other god - f. ex. Yahweh (whose existence the Quran admits, even though it wrongly mixes him with Allah).

021 35/3f: "There is no god but He (Allah) - - -". See 2/255a, 2/165c, 6/106b or 25/18a above.

*022 35/3g: “- - - how then are ye deluded away from the Truth?” The big question: Who are deluded - the Muslims or the non-Muslims? The Quran has so many mistakes and other blemishes that to say it is made or revered by or sent down from a god, is an insult to that god. And if the Quran is wrong about Allah, the Muslims are even more deluded.

023 35/3h: “- - - how then are ye deluded away from the Truth (the Quran*)?” Is it the truth? At least not the only and the full truth. Too many things are wrong. See 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below. 

024 35/4a: "- - - if they (opponents*) reject thee (Muhammad*) - - -". Historical anomalies.

025 35/4b: "- - - so were the messengers rejected before thee (Muhammad*) - - -". You will see many places that it was essential for Muhammad to claim he was just like the old Jewish prophets - and he indicated that this meant he was just a normal prophet (though in too many ways he differed from them - his teachings, his life, his basic ideas, his demand for riches, his womanizing, his point of view concerning honesty and even oaths, etc. - he is not in that line).

026 35/4c: "- - - so were the messengers rejected before thee (Muhammad*) - - -". But was Muhammad a messenger? - and in case for whom or what? See 63/5a below.

027 35/4d: "- - - to Allah go back for decision all affairs". Allah decides and predestines everything. Where then is man's free will? Those two are not possible to combine, in spite of Islam's not only unproved, but unexplained and unexplainable claims (A6/141 - English 2008 edition 6/143: "- - - the relationship between Allah's knowledge of the future (and therefore the ineluctability of what is to happen in the future) on the one side, and man's free will on the other - two propositions which, on the face of it (!!*), seem to contradict one another - is beyond man's comprehension; but since both are postulated by Allah (in the Quran - a book full of mistakes, etc.*) both must be true". Unbelievable naivety).

028 35/4e: "- - - to Allah go back for decision all affairs". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that Yahweh has quite a say (though he does not have full predestination, and man has real free will - clear proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god). Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

029 35/5a: "Certainly - - -". See 2/2b above.

030 35/5b: “Certainly the promise of Allah is true.” If he exists and if he is omniscient and if he is omnipotent, it is to be hoped it is so. But it is not possible from the Quran to know what is true or if anything is true at all - too many mistakes, too many contradictions, too many invalid “signs” and “proofs”, and too many tales and statements built on nothing or on other statements resting just on air.

031 35/5c: “Certainly the promise of Allah is true.” There never through the times was one single documented case of Allah giving and/or keeping a promise - if there had been, Islam had put it on the walls of every mosque and many other places. Claims aplenty, proved cases none.

032 35/5d: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

*033 35/5e: “- - - (not) let the Chief Deceiver deceive you about Allah.” The Quran here talks about the Devil. But one question: Muhammad is the absolute and unquestioned chief of the Muslims. If Islam is a false religion – is Muhammad then the Chief Deceiver? The question is not ridiculous – it is sure it is neither made by an omniscient god (too much is wrong in the Quran), nor by a good god (too much dishonesty, discrimination, inhumanity, hate, blood and war), and then the alternatives are: Made by man? – rational or ill (f.x. TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - will explain much). Or made by some dark forces? – f.x. the Devil dressed up like Gabriel. Or made by man - f.x. Muhammad.

034 35/6a: "Verily - - -". There is so much which is wrong in the Quran, that even in this connection we have to mention that to trust the word "verily" in this book, there should be proofs in each case. Also see 2/2b above.

035 35/6b: "- - - the Blazing Fire". Hell.

036 35/7a: "For those who reject Allah, is a terrible Penalty - - -". Only true if Allah exists, if he is a major god, if he and his behavior is correctly described in the Quran, and if there is no other god - f.x. Yahweh, the old Jewish and Christian god the Quran admits exists, though it wrongly mixes him with Allah.

037 35/7b: "- - - those who reject Allah - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

038 35/7c: "- - - a terrible Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

039 35/7d: "- - - but for those who believe and work righteous deeds, is Forgiveness and a magnificent Reward". See 37/7a above.

040 35/7e: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims - this expression the Quran only uses for Muslims.

041 35/7f: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

042 35/7g: "- - - Forgiveness - - -". Only 2 can forgive: The victim and a god. The claimed forgiveness thus here only is possible if Allah exists and is a real god of some power.

043 35/7h: "- - - a magnificent Reward". The Quran's and Islam's paradise. See 10/9f above.

044 35/8a: “Is he, then, to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring (non-Muslims*) - - - (equal to one who is 'rightly guided'*)?” Of course not - Muslims are much better, of course. This even though the famous Muslim al-Ghazali (1058 - 1111 AD) - "the greatest Muslim after Muhammad", according to Islam - marked the end of any new thinking in any science not helpful for Islam, in the eastern and central Muslim world with his book "The Incoherence of the Philosophers" against philosophy in 1095 AD. For more than 900 years there have not come one single new thought or idea bringing humanity forward in any kind of science, "humanoria" included, from all the Muslim world, Maghreb/Spain excluded. (There the ability and freedom to think yourself lasted another ca. 100 years - the death of Ibn Rushd (Averroes) in 1198 can arbitrarily be said to mark the end there). Not one single new thought or new idea in over 900 years!!! Among now some 1.2 BILLION people!!! Yes, it has really to be said: It is difficult to match Muslims and Islam.

Actually new ideas some places for long times meant punishment or even death penalty, though after some time it was agreed on that new ideas building on the Quran and the Hadiths could be accepted, but all other ideas were “Bad new thoughts” and negative or even punishable.

045 35/8b: “- - - he - - - to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring - - -". Non-Muslims.

046 35/8c: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - what is evil in the Quran, may not be evil or even god in normal religions, and the other way around.

047 35/8d: “Is he, then, to whom the evil of his conduct is made alluring (non-Muslims*) - - - (equal to one who is rightly guided*)?” There is a serious question here: In the Quran a number of central rules and demands which are obviously bad. But they are made look like good and alluring by the texts in the book. Is he who believes in theses verses which well may be made by a devil, to be reckoned among the evil ones? (these evil rules in the Quran are the reason why we cannot drop the possibility that the real originator is a devil - f. ex. dressed up like Gabriel. This even though it is difficult for us to see how even a devil would make so many mistakes, etc. in an after all small book. He had to know he would be found out sooner or later.

###048 35/8e: "- - - so that he (non-Muslim*) looks upon it as good - - -". It may well be that he is right, because the Quran's moral code at some points is so twisted, that moral is turned upside down - and dishonesty and/or crime and/or horrendous acts are reckoned to be "good and lawful" and even highly praised. Compare parts of the Quran's moral code with "do unto others what you want others do unto you" and not even weeping can express the immoral and horror. Some parts of their code are ok, others are horrendous, unjust and/or highly immoral.

049 35/8f: "- - - (- - - one who is rightly guided) - - -". A Muslim. But see 35/8g just below.

###050 35/8g: "- - - (- - - one who is rightly guided) - - -". But who is in reality rightly guided morally? - one who lives according to the Quran's moral and judicial codes or one who live according to "do unto others like you want others do unto you"? And religiously: One who live according to a book so full of errors that it is clear it has no connection to a god, and dictated by a man of very dubious moral and honesty? - or one who is able to see that things are very wrong with that book?

051 35/8h: "- - - rightly - - -". See 2/2b above.

052 35/8i: "- - - guided - - -". The Quran is no reliable guidebook.

053 35/8j: "For Allah leaves to stray whom He Wills, and guides whom He wills". Once more one of the abysses between the Quran and NT: Allah picks whom he wants for salvation, Yahweh saves absolutely everyone who wants and qualifies - even up to the last moment if there is honest regret and belief. The same god? Impossible.

054 35/8k: "- - - (vainly) - - -". See 2/2b above.

055 35/8l: "- - - for Allah knows well all that they do". So do not try to cheat Allah - and at the same time Muhammad or his successors? But also see 2/233h above.

056 35/8m: "- - - Allah knows well all that they do". Only possible if he exists and is something supernatural.

057 35/9a: "It is Allah Who sends forth the Winds, (etc.*) - - -". See 11/7a above.

058 35/9b: "- - - so that they (winds*) raise up the Clouds - - -". Wrong. The winds do not rise up the clouds, even though it may look like that when you see clouds coming over the horizon. Except for turbulence in and around clouds, it is the temperature gradients and specific weights which raise clouds (and humidity contents compared to temperature which makes them visible). Any god had known, but Muhammad not.

059 35/9c: "- - - and We (Allah*) drive them (the clouds*) - - -". Only possible if Allah exists and is something supernatural - but also see 11/7a above.

060 35/9d: “- - - and revive the earth therewith (with rain) after its death - - -”. Land that can be revived by only adding rain is not dead. It is alive with seeds and perhaps roots. Also see 11/7a above.

061 35/9e: "- - - Resurrection - - -". See 7/158i above.

062 35/10a: "- - - to Allah belong all glory and power". Two more of the many never proved claims in the Quran.

063 35/10b: "- - - to Allah belong all glory and power". Contradicted by the Bible, which says this 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.

064 35/10c: "To Him (Allah*) mount up (all) Words of Purity - - -". Look at the Quran's moral code, and you will doubt this. But there will honestly a lot of other words which may mount up to him - if he exists.

065 35/10d: "- - - it is He (Allah*) Who exalts each Deed of Righteousness". Yet another of the many never proved claims in the Quran - words are cheap, but not even Allah's existence is proved.

066 35/10e: "- - - Deeds of Righteousness". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - the best of deeds, f.x. are thieving, extorting, suppressing, torturing and killing - often indiscriminately - in the name of the god.

067 35/10f: "Those who lay Plots of Evil - - -". One of Muhammad's many enmity inducing names for non-Muslims.

068 35/10g: "- - - plots of Evil - - -". See 35/10e above.

069 35/10h: "- - - a Penalty terrible - - -". See 3/77b above.

070 35/10i: "- - - and the plotting of such will be void (of result)". Sometimes true, sometimes not true. But is it Allah who decides? - never proved in case.

071 35/11a: “And Allah did create you from dust - - -”. Wrong - man was not created from dust. According to science he developed from earlier primates. We may add that the Quran some places have a list of the step-by-step development of humans. The first step generally is the creation of man (like here). Next step is the semen - Mohammad does not seem to have known about the egg cell - like in 35/11c below. Next steps are the start and development of the fetus - but bones come before the meat, wrong. Then sometimes follows birth and development of the child and the man.

072 35/11b: “And Allah did create you from dust - - -". Wrong. See 6/2b above.

073 35/11c: “And Allah did create you from dust, then from a sperm-drop - - -.” See 6/2b and 35/11a above. In addition; no one is made from a sperm drop - one always is made from (a) sperm (cell) + an egg cell. A god had known this, but Muhammad not, as an egg cell for one thing is nearly impossible to see in the blood and gore of a carcass, and not least: Even if he saw it, he would not know it was something special.

074 35/11d: "And no female conceives - - -, but with His (Allah's*) knowledge". One more of the Quran's never proved claims - words are very cheap. Proofs are not as cheap, but only proofs prove anything.

075 35/11e: "- - - lays down (her load) - - -". Give birth.

076 35/11f: “Nor is a man long-lived granted length of days, nor is a part cut off from his life, but is in a Decree (ordained).” Allah has decided - predestined -how long you are to live.

077 35/11g: "(The length of your life*) is in a Decree (ordained)". Predestination is very clear in the Quran, even if many Muslims tries to tell it "is not really predestination", because full predestination like the Quran very clearly states many places, means man is not the one guilty for the sins he commits, and Allah is highly unjust punishing anybody for sins. Full predestination also means that man has no free will - there are combinations even gods cannot make.

078 35/11h: "All this is easy to Allah". Often claimed, never proved.

079 35/11i: There is no indication for that it is Allah who is saying what is said in this verse. Is it Muhammad who once more is speaking himself in the "Mother Book" (see 13/39b above)?

080 35/12a: "- - - the two bodies of water - - -". Sweet water and salt water simply.

081 35/12b: "- - - the Bounty of Allah - - -". See 11/7a above.

082 35/13a: “He (Allah*) merges Night into Day, and he merges Day into Night - - -“. The alternation between day and night happens because the Earth spins around, swimming in the sunshine in space. Muhammad very often takes natural phenomena and calls them proofs/signs for/from Allah. It is untrue unless Islam first really proves both that this is done by a god, and that this god is Allah. But Islam proves nothing essential – it only claims and states and demands blind and naïve belief without documentation - - - even in the face of solid proofs for that something is very wrong.

083 35/13b: "- - - He (Allah*) has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law) - - -". An easy claim, but like normal for the Quran not a proof.

084 35/13c: "- - - (the sun and the moon*) each one runs its course for a term appointed". Predestination once more.

085 35/13d: "Such is Allah your Lord - - -". One more of Muhammad's many never documented claims - claims any believer in any religion can make free of charge on behalf of his god(s).

086 35/13e: "- - - to Him (Allah*) belongs all Dominion". Often claimed, never proved. Words are cheap.

087 35/13f: "- - - to Him (Allah*) belongs all Dominion". Contradicted by the Bible, which says 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.

088 35/13g: "And those (gods*) whom ye (non-Muslims*) invoke besides Him (Allah*) have not the least power (except Yahweh?*)". The disturbing fact here is that Allah has also never - never - in any connection clearly showed his claimed power. All there is are claims never documented".

089 35/14a: "If ye (non-Muslims*) invoke then (other gods*), they will not listen to your call, and if they were to listen, they cannot answer your (prayer)". Similar to 35/13g just above.

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 35/14b: (A35/14 – in 2008 edition A35/13): “If you invoke them (your “homemade” gods*) they do not hear your call; and even if they could hear, they would not (be able to) respond to you. And (withal) on the Day of Resurrection they will utterly disown your having associated them with Allah.” This is a contradiction one finds several places in the Quran: The gods made from wood or stones (and saints) naturally cannot hear or react to or answer you. But all the same they talk at the Day of Doom. For the saints to talk, is one thing, for wood and stone and metal it is quite another. Muslims must feel that themselves, because the most common “explanation” is not claims of miracles or something supernatural, but that it is meant symbolically - one of the famous last ditch defenses against the unexplainable in Islam.

091 35/14c: “And none (O man!) can tell you (the Truth) like the One (Allah) - - -”. This may be true if Allah exists. But the truth as told in the Quran, at best is partly the truth - mistakes, invalid “signs” and “proofs”, contradictions, unclear language, etc. Also see 13/1g, 28/75, 34/48 above and 43/86 below.

092 35/14d: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 13/1g above.

093 35/14e: "- - - the One (Allah*) who is acquainted with all things". See 2/233h above.

#094 35/15a: "O ye men! It is ye that have need of Allah - - -". Only if Allah exists and is a major god. That is to say, there are humans (5-10%?) who likes or needs something strong to lean to, but they only need the belief. They are helped if they just believe strongly enough in a god/gods. It does not mean anything which one or ones, as long as they believe it is reality. Because of this human trait, you find such persons in any and all religions - 100% sure that they are right and with the right god(s). Partly because of the strong religious social and judicial pressure in Islam, you find a lot of them in that religion, as such pressure combined with one-sided information makes it easier for such tendencies to manifest themselves.

095 35/15b: "- - - Allah is the One Free of all wants - - -". Easily explainable if he does not exist.

096 35/15c: "- - - Allah is - - - worthy of all praise". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of the sharia laws, and about Allah's real - not claimed, but real - goodness, benevolence and mercy. See afterwards if you agree to this verse.

097 35/16a: “If He (Allah*) so pleased - - -". See 14/19d above.

098 35/16b: “If He (Allah*) so pleased, He could blot you (man*) out and bring in a New Creation”. Words are cheap as long as you brag - and it may have been bragging, because even if similar things were said other places in the Quran, it never was anything but words. Also see 21/56c above.

099 35/17: "Nor is that (at all) difficult for Allah". Often claimed, never proved.

100 35/18a: "Nor can a bearer of burdens ear another's burden." Here is one more difference between NT and the Quran - and this one is big, as they are 180 degrees opposing each others: The NT says - and it is nearly an order - "carry each others' burdens". Yahweh and Allah the same god? Answer not necessary.

101 35/18b: "- - - such as fear their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Muslims.

#102 35/18c: "- - - 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.)

103 35/18d: "- - - the destination (of all) is to Allah (at the Day of Doom*)". Often claimed, never proved, only true if Allah exists and is a major god correctly described by the Quran - a book so full of mistakes that it clearly is not from a god.

104 35/19a: “The blind (non-Muslims*) and the seeing (Muslims*) are not alike - - -”. No, a blind man - like Stevie Wonder - has no value. Also see 35/18d just above.

105 35/19b: “The blind (non-Muslims*) and the seeing (Muslims*) are not alike - - -”. Is there an irony in the fact that the Quran and Islam demands blind belief?

106 35/20: “Nor (alike*) are the depths of Darkness (meaning non-Muslims*) and the Light (meaning Muslims*) - - -”. Logically as true as a number of other loose statements in the Quran.

But is a religion and a culture not bringing one single new thought or idea benefiting man in more than 900 years – and that is literally speaking - really representing the light? - or one built on a book full of mistakes and not from a god - does it represent the religious light?

107 35/21: “Nor (alike*) are the (chilly) shade (non-Muslims*) and the (genial) heath of the sun (Muslims*) - - -”. Is it here symbolic that in Paradise there is shade according to the Quran? Also see 35/20 just above.

108 35/22a: “Nor (alike*) are those who are living (Muslims*) and those that are dead (non-Muslims*).” In the stagnant civilization of the intellectually living dead (see 35/8) that is likely to be true of course. (But there have been some small tendencies to new intellectual life in the Islamic areas the last some 60 years - though not enough to bring forth new ideas, only to question some of the old ones).

Is it symbolic that intellectual life in medieval Islam lasted longest in the West (Maghreb/Spain?)?

109 35/22b: "- - - thou (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

110 35/23a: “Thou (Muhammad*) art no other than a warner.” Well, around 615 – 616 AD he was may be only that. But it changed later – from a warner to an enforcer and a robber baron. With the corresponding changes of the religion – and abrogation of and contradictions to the old sayings, like this one. This verse is contradicted and often “killed” by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).

111 35/23b: "Thou (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

112 35/23c: “Thou (Muhammad*) art no other than a warner.” No, around 615 – 616 AD he was may be only that. But it changed later – from a warner to an enforcer and a robber baron. With the corresponding changes of the religion – and abrogation of and contradictions to the old sayings, like this one. 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. (At least 28 abrogations).

113 35/24a: "Verily - - -". See f. x. 2/2b and 35/6above.

*114 35/24b: “Verily We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) - - -”. Verily Muhammad and the Quran repeats and repeats and repeats this (most often in the words “Allah and his Messenger”) - worthy of a certain German “Minister of Propaganda” between 1933 and 1945 we think it was, a very honest and reliable (?) man named Joseph Goebbels, whose slogan was: “Repeat a lie often enough, and people will start to believe it”. Here it has been repeated zillions of times through the time, and millions of Muslims believe in it - but then no Muslim society has ever trained their subjects in critical thinking, or for thinking realism. On the contrary: Muslim societies normally have trained them in the sick kind of thinking which is believing that most acts and most information are lies which gives reason for conspiracy theories + blind belief in Islam and the mullah and the imam.

Perhaps the words in the quote are true. But most likely they are not - if they are true, Allah is no god (no god sends a book of that quality). One thing is all the mistakes in the Quran which tell it is not reliable and most likely is invented. More serious is that in spite of being asked again and again and again Muhammad was unable to prove anything at all - one hallmark of a lie – or more lies - is that proofs are impossible. One have to use fast-talk and evasions, both of which there are plenty of in the Quran. And when there is a question of proving anything, there still is plenty of fast-talk in Islam.

*But worst of all are all the invalid claims and statements, and the “signs”, “proofs” and fast-talk - those are the hallmarks of any smart cheater or false prophet who for natural reasons are unable to produce proofs.

115 35/24c: “Verily We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) in truth - - -”. We are back to the literally age old question (the serious questions that started around 610 AD - but Muhammad in the end was military the strongest) about the Quran: What - if anything - is true, and what is not true in the Quran? (Nowadays it is easy to see that at least many of the tales and many of the statements are untrue).

116 35/24d: "- - - thee (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

117 35/24e: "- - - truth - - -". See 2/2b and 13/1g above and 40/75 below.

118 35/24f: “Verily We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) in truth as a bearer of Glad Tidings and as a warner - - -.” As for glad tidings, that only goes for the Muslims, and for far from all of them even. But but for that: 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,e25/52, 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 35/24g: “Verily We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) in truth as a bearer of Glad Tidings and as a warner - - -.” (See 35/24f just above.) This verse is contradicted and often “killed” by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).

120 35/24h: “- - - Glad Tidings - - -.” Wrong. Islam is no glad tiding, except for the ones not suppressed – and really glad only for the ones looking for booty and slaves and stolen riches, and not least for the ones near the top of the pyramid who got – and get – a lot of power in addition. It often is like that in war religions, especially when made to fit a strong and charismatic leader (and his successors), though many war religions have not been as hypocritical as Islam in trying to make its members and others believe it is good and just and humane and benevolent. And well, it may have been glad tidings for the minor percentage of people who needs a religion to lean on – at least for the possible ones who found the old pagan religion not strong enough.

###121 35/24i: “- - - there never was a people, without a warner having lived among them (in the past).”

28/46: “Yet (art thou (Muhammad*) sent) as a Mercy from thy Lord (according to the Quran = Allah*) to give warning to a people to whom no warner (= prophet, messenger*) had come before - - -.” No messenger had they had, even though “every people” had had.

32/3: “Nay, it is the Truth from thy (Muhammad’s*) Lord (Allah*), that thou mayest admonish to a people to whom no warner has come before thee - - -.”

34/44: “But We (Allah*) had not given them (Arabs”*) Books which they could study, nor sent messengers to them before thee (Muhammad*) - - -.”

36/6: “In order that thou (Muhammad*) mayest admonish a people (the Arabs*) whose fathers had received no admonition - - -.”

Which verse(s) is/are wrong?

(4 contradictions).

###122 35/24j: “- - - and there never was a people, without a warner (a prophet for Allah*) having lived among them (in the past) - - -”. As said before: Neither in archaeology, nor in architecture, nor in art, nor in history, nor in literature, nor in folklore, nor in folk tales - not even in fairy tales - do we find a single trace of any teaching of monotheism before 610 AD, with two well known exceptions (Jews and Christians) and two or three less known exceptions (Pharaoh Akn-Aton, praying to the sun, a semi-Christian sect in Persia, an Arab sect around 600 BC - likely inspired by the two monotheistic religions in the area – plus the Zoroastrians after a fashion). Some places one or a few gods dominated, but no monotheism.

In the Americas - absolutely nothing.

In Australia - absolutely nothing.

In the Pacific - absolutely nothing.

In Europe - absolutely nothing except Christians and some Jews.

In Africa - absolutely nothing with the exception of one single man: Pharaoh Akn-Aton - but he so definitely was not speaking about Allah. He wanted the sun for the only god. (+ Jews and Christians).

In Asia - absolutely nothing, except in what we now call the Middle East: The Christians, the well known Jews and as already mentioned the Zoroastrians mainly in Persia (after a fashion) and a couple of monotheistic old sects. Of course there was Buddha, but he was/is no god, and besides he accepted that gods existed, but told they were on wrong ways not leading to nirvana - no monotheism.

124ooo (or more - the number is said to be symbolic, as there may have been more) prophets had to have left some traces somewhere, if the tale was true.

This statement simply is not true. If Islam still insists, they will have to produce strong proofs. “Strong statements demands strong evidence”, to quote science. And not just loose claims, invalid “signs” and “proofs”, and more loose statements like Islam normally produces- real proofs are needed.

123 35/25a: "And if they (people*) reject thee (Muhammad*), so did their predecessors - - -". For Muhammad it seems to have been essential to show that he was treated just like earlier prophets, to "document" that he himself was a real and ordinary prophet like the old ones.

124 35/25b: "- - - thee (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

125 35/25c: “- - - Clear Signs - - -“. See 2/39b or 2/99 above.

126 35/25d: “- - - the Book of Enlightenment (the Quran*) - - -”. A book with so many mistakes, so many contradictions and so many invalid “signs” and “proofs” is too unreliable to be any kind of enlightenment. Actually one single mistake or one single false “proof” or one single contradiction would prove the Quran was not from an omniscient god - and here are hundreds. Contradicted by realities – far too much is wrong in the book + it teaches an inhuman moral.

127 35/25e: "(Earlier prophets came with) the Book of Enlightenment". Muhammad claimed that all earlier prophets had got a copy of the timeless claimed "Mother Book" in Heaven - similar to the Quran, which is claimed to be a copy of the same claimed "Mother Book", but that the bad Jews and Christians had falsified it and transformed it into the Bible. (Both science and Islam have thoroughly proved the claim wrong - and besides: How do you f.x. make Jews and Christians agree on how to falsify the texts in a Bible?)

128 35/26a: "In the end did I (Allah*) punish those who rejected Faith - - -". As this obviously is not true, at least not in this life, as many a people was not punished, many Muslims tends to skip this sentence, or explain it with the safe claim that they were - or will be - - punished in the next life.

129 35/26b: "- - - those who rejected Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

130 35/26c: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam.

131 35/26d: "- - - how (terrible) was My (Allah's*) rejection (of them) (non-Muslims*)!" The good and benevolent and forgiving god?

132 35/26e: "- - - how (terrible) was My (Allah's*) rejection (of them) (non-Muslims*)!" One of the many things Allah cannot do unless he exists and is something supernatural.

133 35/27a: "- - - Allah sends down rain from the sky - - -". Muhammad often took natural phenomena and claimed it was Allah who made it. Not one single of these claims was ever proved, in spite of requests for proofs for Allah and for Muhammad's connection to a god. Also see 11/7a above.

134 35/27b: "With it (rain*) We (Allah*) then bring out produce of various colors". See 11/7a above.

*135 35/28a: “Those truly fear Allah - - - who have knowledge - - -“. The fact is that it is more common to be religious if you have little knowledge and/or intelligence (but of course this is a good way of flattering and attracting the naïve and the uneducated). And the Quran also proves that somewhere there was/is a huge lack of correct knowledge – and consequently that something is seriously wrong with the book and hence with the religion.

136 35/28b: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.

137 35/28c: "- - - Allah is Exalted in Might - - -". A might never proved in case.

138 35/28d: "- - - Allah is - - - Oft-Forgiving". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and is a god.

139 35/29a: "Those who rehearse the Book of Allah (the Quran*) - - -". Muslims.

#140 35/29b: "- - - 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.)

141 35/29c: "- - - spend (in Charity*) - - -". The stressing on charity is one of the positive sides of Islam. But there are two facts which reduces its moral value: The main thing is not to help others, but to gain merit in Heaven, and you gain as much merit from helping your nearest as from helping strangers - and the strangers easily end up rather low on the priority list.

142 35/29d "- - - out of what We (Allah*) have provided - - -". All you have is provided by Allah - your own planning and toil hardly counts if you are to believe the Quran.

143 35/29e: "- - - a commerce (the promise of Paradise*) that will never fail". This is not true unless Allah really exists, is a major god, and is correctly described in the Quran - all of which Islam will have to prove to be believed by us - too much is wrong in the book and exactly nothing is proved about Allah.

144 35/30a: "For He (Allah*) will pay them (Muslims*) their meed - - -". See 35/29e just above.

145 35/30b: (A35/22 – comment omitted in English 2008 edition): “- - - He (Allah*) will grant them their just rewards, and give them (even) more out of His Bounty; for He is Oft-forgiving, Most ready to appreciate (service).” “The Message of the Quran” (2008) has it like this: “- - - for, verily. He is much-forgiving, ever-responding to gratitude.” What the literal meaning is according to the less “revised” 2006 edition, is (translated from Swedish): “He (Allah*) forgives much and He shows great gratitude.” May the different ways of “understanding” the text derive from the fact that it cannot be correct that the great god Allah can show gratitude towards mere humans?

146 35/30c: "- - - He (Allah*) is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah can forgive exactly no-one unless he exists and in addition is a god.

147 35/30d: "- - - (Allah is*) Most Ready to appreciate (service)". One more of the never proved claims of Muhammad.

148 35/30e: "- - - (service (to Allah*)) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral code.

149 35/31a: “That which We (Allah*) have revealed - - - of the Book (the Quran*) - - -”. Can an omniscient god reveal a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, and invalid “signs” and “proofs”? No.

150 35/31b: "- - - revealed - - -". Is the Quran really revealed - and in case from whom, as no god was involved? - or is it simply made?

151 35/31c: “That which We (Allah*) have revealed to thee (Muhammad/people*) of the Book (the Quran*) - - -”. No omniscient god reveal a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, and invalid “signs” and “proofs” and send it to humans for use as his holy book.

152 35/31d: ”That which We (Allah*) have revealed to thee of the Book (the Quran*) is the Truth - - -”. See 35/31a just above. And also: With that many mistakes, etc. it at best is parts and bits of the truth. Also see 13/1g above and 40/75 below. 

153 35/31e: “- - - (the Quran is*) confirming what was (revealed) before it (= the Bible, the Torah, etc.*)”. Wrong. There are so many and so fundamental differences between the Bible and the Quran, that the Quran has not even relevance to the Bible, not to mention confirms it.

154 35/31f: "- - - Allah is assuredly - - - well acquainted and fully Observant". If he exists, if he has the power of a god, and if he is correctly described in the Quran.

155 35/31g: "- - - assuredly - - -". See 2/2b above.

156 35/31h: "- - - His (Allah's*) Servants - - -". This expression some places means Muslims and other places the claimed prophets or messengers, and a few places even humans generally. In this case most likely Muslims generally speaking.

157 35/32a: "Then We (Allah*) have given the Book (here the Quran*) - - -". No god have even been involved with a book of a quality like the Quran.

158 35/32b: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Servants - - -".See 35/31f above.

159 35/32c: "- - - We (Allah*) have chosen - - -". Not unless he exists and is something supernatural (but beware that he can make choices even if he should belong to the dark forces).

160 35/32d: "- - - some who wrong their own soul - - -". Non-Muslims.

161 35/32e: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

162 35/32f: "- - - some who follow the middle course - - -". This may mean the undecided as for religion or the ones having roughly equal of good and bad deeds (does not take much, as the good deeds count up to ten times as much as the bad ones, according to the Quran - Islam is an easy religion that way). Muslims tend to mean it is the latter meaning which is meant here.

163 35/32g: "- - - some who are - - - foremost in good deeds - - -". Good Muslims.

164 35/32h: "- - - by Allah's leave - - -". Allah predestines everything, and does it according to his own Plan which nobody and nothing can change. Then where is the free will of man? (It simply does not exist in case.)

165 35/32i: "- - - good deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

166 35/32j: "- - - that is the highest Grace". Knowing the Quran's ethical and moral codes of the Quran, and knowing how likely it is that Allah at all exists, we do not comment on this.

167 35/33a: “Gardens of Eternity (Paradise*) - - -". But 11/108c may indicate that it is not quite for eternity.

168 35/33b: “Gardens of Eternity (Paradise*) will they (Muslims*) enter: therein will they be adorned with bracelets of gold and pearls: and their garments will be of silk.” Earthly luxury life. Also see 10/9f above.

169 35/33c: “- - - bracelets of gold - - -“. Well, another place (76/21) it was said they were from silver. A minor contradiction – but a contradiction.

#170 35/33d: "- - - their garments there (in Paradise*) will be of silk". Was this the best an omnipotent god had to offer? This simply is a poor man's dream of the life of an earthly king. One more proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god: Their paradises are too different - in Yahweh's Paradise you become like angels (f.x. Luke 20/36).

171 35/34a: “(In Paradise Muslims will say*) Praise be to Allah, who has removed from us (all) sorrow - - -”. At least something in addition to material plenty, which really is all that the other verses have been talking about.

172 35/34b: “- - - Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it.

173 35/34c: "- - - (Allah is*) Oft-Forgiving - - -". See f.x. 34/2c above.

174 35/34d: "- - - (Allah is*) ready to appreciate (service) - - -". He in case never provably has said so.

175 35/35a: "- - - His (Allah's*) Bounty - - -". Everything you have are gifts from Allah - your own ideas and planning and toil count little in the Quran.

176 35/35b: "- - - a Home that will last - - -". The Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f above. But 11/108c may indicate it at least will not last forever.

177 35/35c: “- - - no toil nor sense of weariness shall touch us (Muslims*) therein (in Paradise*).” Paradise = Like the rich and mighty on Earth: They did not have to toil and become weary.

178 35/36a: “But those who reject (Allah) – for them will be the Fire of Hell”. Not exactly compulsion on the surface, but at least a clear threat. We include it because this threat is repeated often, so it makes up a considerable psychological compulsion anyhow for anyone not sure Islam is wrong. It at least contradicts 2/256. Also see 3/77b above.

179 35/36b: “But those who reject (Allah) – for them will be the Fire of Hell”. Not exactly Compulsion on the surface, but at least a clear threat. We include it because this threat is repeated often, so it makes up a considerable psychological compulsion anyhow for anyone who is not sure that Islam is wrong. This verse abrogated (and contradicts) at least these verses (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5. (At least 88 abrogations).

180 35/36c: "- - - those who reject Allah - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

181 35/36d: "- - - no term shall be determined for them (non-Muslims in Hell*) - - -". Allah will predestine on end of the torture for them.

182 35/36e: "Thus (sending to Hell*) do We (Allah*) reward every ungrateful one!". If Allah exists, if he is a major god, and if he is correctly described in the Quran - a book full of errors.

183 35/36f: "- - - ungrateful one". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

184 35/37a: “Therein (Hell) will they (non-Muslims/sinners*) cry aloud (for assistance): ‘Our Lord (Allah*)! Bring us out: we shall work righteousness, not the (deeds) we used to do!’” The inmates of Hell will plead for mercy, but to no avail. A warning - but nice to know for the ones "knowing" they would end in Paradise.

185 35/37b: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

186 35/37c: "- - - the warner (claimed prophet from Allah*) came to you (any non-Muslim*) - - -". Similar is claimed many places in the Quran, but it simply is not true - neither science nor Islam has found the least traces from them. Islam will have to bring proofs - proofs, not just loose claims - to make us believe this.

#187 35/37d: "- - - for the wrongdoers there is no helper". There are so big differences between the ethical and moral codes between the Bible - especially NT and its New Covenance (= the teachings of Jesus) - and the Quran, that a lot of things bad in the Quran, may be not bad or even good in the NT. Then may be Yahweh will be a helper at least for his followers?

188 35/37e: "- - - the wrongdoers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

189 35/37f: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

190 35/38a: "Verily - - -". Se f.x. 2/2b and 35/6 above.

191 35/38b: "Verily Allah knows (all) the hidden things of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and earth: verily He has full knowledge if all that is in (men's) hearts". This is a reminder and a warning you meet in different forms many places in the Quran. It normally has one (if often more) of 3 functions: Warn you against trying to cheat Allah (in reality Muhammad on this Earth) by doing not your best. Or an incitement to do your best because Allah sees you and rewards you - good also for Muhammad and his successors. Or soothing you that the ones who do bad things will be punished sooner or later, even if they have a good life now.

192 35/38c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

193 35/38d: "- - - He (Allah*) has full knowledge of all that is in (men's) hearts". See 2/233h above.

194 35/39a: “He (Allah*) is it That has made you inheritors in the earth - - -”. Can anyone - Muslim or not - explain us where else earthlings without space travel could live, except in and on Earth?

195 35/39b: “He (Allah*) is it That has made you inheritors in the earth - - -”. See 11/7a above.

196 35/39c: "- - - if, then, any do reject (Allah), their rejection (works) against themselves - - -". This may be correct if Allah exists and is a god - but only if that god is correctly described in the Quran. If he does not exist, it is better to leave the Quran, partly because of that the ethical, moral, and judicial codes at points are very immoral and inhuman in the Quran. And if Allah exists and is part of the dark forces, it definitely is better to look for some other leader.

197 35/39d: "- - - their (non-Muslims'*) rejection (of the Quran*) but adds to the odium for the Unbelievers in the sight of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". See 35/39c just above.

198 35/39e: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

199 35/39f: "- - - their (non-Muslim's*) Rejection (of the Quran*) but adds to (their own) undoing”. See 35/39d above. 

200 35/40a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

201 34/40b: "- - - 'Partners' - - -". Other gods.

202 35/40c: "- - - 'Partners' of yours (non-Muslims'*) whom ye call upon besides Allah - - -". See 25/18a above.

203 35/40d: "Show me (Muhammad*) what is us they (other gods*) have created in the (wide) earth". But the problem is the same with Allah: Show us even an atom you can prove he has created. Words are very cheap, and any priest of any god can claim anything as long as he is able to evade all questions for proofs, like the case is in Islam. Only loose words. Muhammad also normally demanded proofs form any opponent, but was never able to prove any of his own central claims.

204 35/40e: "- - - or do they (other gods than Allah*) have a share in the heavens (plural and wrong*)?" Yes, according to the Bible Yahweh has. Another question is if Allah has, or if also that just are claims and loose words in the Quran.

205 35/40f: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

206 35/40g: "Or have We (Allah*) given them a book from which they (can derive) clear (evidence)?" This sentence is so naive, that one has to remember that in the really old times when few knew how to read and write, the written word carried huge respect among the uneducated classes. Many of them simply did not know that it is just as easy to make up books as to make up verbal tales, and that a book does not prove one iota more than a verbal story: In both cases the contents have to be checked and proved true, before it is evidence for anything at all. The Quran has so many mistakes, etc. that it has zero value as proof, unless there are additional proofs. It here is symptomatic that serious science never looks to the Quran for proofs or even indication for anything that is older than 610 AD.

207 35/40h: "Or have We (Allah*) given them a book from which they (can derive) clear (evidence)?" What at least is clear, is that no god gave Muhammad a book. No god was involved in a book where so much is wrong like in the Quran.

208 35/40i: “- - - clear (evidence) - - -“. No book in itself is clear evidence. There f.x. is no clear or valid evidence for anything concerning Allah in all the Quran. See 2/39b and 2/99 above. This sentence in reality is very naive.

209 35/40j: "Nay, the wrongdoers promise each other nothing but delusions". May well be right, though not for all, as many simply saw that things were very wrong in the new religion, but the recurring question is: What then about the Muslims, as they base their belief on a book full of mistakes, etc.?

210 35/40k: "- - - the wrongdoers promise each other nothing but dilutions". Psychologically a good claim as long as the listeners believe it. It is unbelievable what you can make people in a religious fervor believe.

211 35/40l: "- - - the wrongdoers - - -". One of Muhammad's many distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

212 35/40m: "- - - wrongdoers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

#213 35/41a: "It is Allah Who sustains the heavens (plural and wrong) the earth - - -". We have till now not seen one Islamic try to explain this sentence, which is not either un-scientific, trying to adjust the text to modern scientific reality, which is not possible if you look at the whole book, or fast, but loose talk. Also see 11/7a above.

214 35/41b: "- - - lest they (heavens and Earth*) cease (to function - - -". See 35/41a just above.

215 35/41c: "- - - if they (heavens and Earth*) should fail - - -". See 35/41a above.

216 35/41d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

#217 35/41e: The general content of this verse is of the category: Believe it if you want to and are able to - but no scientist believes it.

218 35/41f: (YA3933): "The universe, as we know it, shows not only evidence of initial designs, but also the working of an intelligent Providence - - -". Dishonesty. Creationists claim this and this, but there is no proofs for an intelligence behind the creation or running of the universe. Also YA knew this, if for no other reason than that creationists had hailed such a proof with thundering noise - a fact YA had to know.

219 35/41g: "- - - verily - - -".

220 35/41h: "- - - He (Allah*) is Most Forbearing - - -". See 2/2b above.

221 35/41i: "(Allah is*) Oft-Forgiving". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and is a god.

222 35/42a: "They (hypocrites of Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

223 35/42b: "They (hypocrites of Muhammad*) swore their strongest oaths - - -". How could this reliably be written in the claimed "Mother Book" (of which the Quran is a copy according to Muhammad) billions of years before it was said or happened? One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places (if you look, you will find more cases than we mention - we only mention some of the obvious ones). If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man (and also contra that there is no meaning in praying to Allah for help, if everything already is predestined in accordance with a plan "nobody and nothing can change" - a problem which Muslims seldom mention), and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.

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

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

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

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

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

224 35/42c: "- - - his guidance (the Quran*) - - -". See 16/107 above.

225 35/42d: "- - - a warner (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

226 35/42e: “- - - their flight (from righteousness (= the teachings of Muhammad*)) - - -”. Any teaching based on a book containing large numbers of mistakes, contradictions, and invalid “proofs” and “signs”, and on top off all is only told by one single man of dubious morality and character (womanizing, rape, robbery, extortion, murder and mass murder - and lust for power - all this and more are well documented by Islam itself, though glossed over) - such a teaching does not represent righteousness. This even more so as it strongly incites to hate, suppression, killing and war - not very righteous or good). Similar claims in 6/111 – 17/41 – 17/46 – 71/6.

227 35/42f: “- - - their (hypocrites of Muhammad*) flight (from righteousness (= the teachings of Muhammad*)) - - -". See 35/42b above.

139a 35/42g: "- - - (- - - righteousness) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

228 35/43a: "- - - Evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F. x. it was evil not to go on raids for Muhammad - raids mainly for stealing, extortion, enslaving and killing.

229 35/43b: "Now are they (people*) but looking for the way the ancient were dealt with?" In and around Arabia there were scattered empty or ruined houses, villages, towns, etc. Also in old Arab folklore there were tales about former tribes, now disappeared. Muhammad claimed - as normal without the slightest proofs - that they had all been finished off by Allah because of sins. Science has a number of other possible explanations.

230 35/43c: "But no change wilt thou (Muhammad? people?) find in Allah's way (of dealing) - - -". What Allah has predestined, is impossible to change.

231 35/43d: "But no change wilt thou (Muhammad? people?) find in Allah's way (of dealing) - - -". If one compares with especially NT, there are huge changes - huge. One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not even in the same brigade, not to mention in the same line.

232 35/43e: "- - - no turning off wilt thou (Muhammad? people?) find in Allah's way (of dealing)". See 35/43d just above.<&p>

233 35/44a: “Do they (people*) not travel through the earth, and see what was the End of those before them - - -?” In and around Arabia there were (and are) ruins here and there. Muhammad claimed – as normal without any documentation as only non-Muslims need to prove anything – that each and every one of them was a result of Allah’s anger because of disbelief etc. in Islam. Wrong. In a dry and harsh land inhabited by warring tribes there were plenty of other reasons for empty houses and ruins.

234 35/44b: "- - - superior to them in strength - - -". To magnify his god and the strength of the god, Muhammad normally told that the old ones Allah had killed had been stronger then the Arabs of his time - just keep an eye on it when you read the Quran, and you will see this phenomenon. Words and claims are cheap - he never proved this, like he never proved anything else of any consequence.

235 35/44c: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22.

236 35/44d: "(Allah*) is All-Knowing - - -". In that case he did not make the Quran - too much is wrong.

237 35/44e: "(Allah*) is - - - All-Powerful". Well, he has never clearly shown his power - till now it is all ONLY words.

238 35/45a: "If Allah were to - - -". Similar sentences you find several places in the Quran - like child's boasting. But It never comes passed the boasting stage.

239 35/45b: "If Allah were to punish - - -". Impossible unless he exists and is something supernatural.

240 35/45c: "- - - He (Allah*) gives them (non-Muslims/sinners*) respite for a stated Term - - -". Muhammad's standard explanation for why non-Muslims and bad Muslims were not punished like they deserved: Allah in his unfathomable wisdom already had decided the best way to do things.

241 35/45d: "- - - stated Term - - -". The predestined time.

242 35/45e: “- - - when their term expires - - -“. Allah has set terms of time - predestination - and nothing can change his predestinations, his Plan.

243 35/45f: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

244 35/45g: "- - - Allah has in sight all His Servants." Only possible - not sure, but possible - if he exists and is something supernatural.

245 35/45h: "- - - His (Allah's*) Servants". An expression which in the Quran may mean all humans, all Muslims, or his prophets - like Muslims claim the language in the Quran is very clear and not to be misunderstood. In just this case it may be all humans who are meant.
