1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 46 -- AL-AQAF (The Winding Sand-tracts)
20 June 2012
Revelation: Mecca, 620 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 46/1: "Ha Mim". This is one of the many surahs which start with - in this case two - Arab letters, called abbreviated letters, the meaning of which no-one understands. (In some cases the letters make a word by design or by co-incidence, but the word in those cases has no meaning relevant for that surah.) Clear language in the Quran?
003 46/2a: “The Revelation of the Book (the Quran*) - - -.” Back to square one – is it revealed? – and in case from whom? - Not from a god (too much is wring in the book), then from dark forces? - or from a sick brain (f.x. TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy)? - or from a cold and scheming human brain (f.x. Muhammad’s)?
004 46/2b: "- - - the Book - - -". Here the Quran (The Quran often means the Bible or the Torah/Jewish scriptures when it talks about "the Book - f.x. "the People of the Book" = The people believing in the Bible = Jews, Christians and Sabeans (most likely Christians from Saba/Sabah/Sheba, but other explanations exist)).
005 46/2c: "The Revelation of the Book (the Quran*) is from Allah - - -". In that case Allah has little knowledge - no omniscient god makes a book this full of errors. Not to mention reveres it as a "mother book" in his "home" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22).
006 46/2d: "- - - Allah the Exalted in Power - - -". Power he in case never clearly has shown.
007 46/2e: “(Allah is*) Full of Wisdom.” Not if the Quran is representative for it – too many mistakes, etc. See 13/1g and 40/75 above.
008 46/3a: ”We (Allah*) created - - -". Often claimed, never proved - extra interesting because if the Quran and>/or the Bible tell(s) the truth on this point, Yahweh proved his ability to create. Also see 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c, 41/15f above.
009 46/3b: ”We (Allah*) created not the heavens and the earth and all between them - - -". See 46/3a just above.
010 46/3c: “- - - heaven - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.
011 46/3d: "- - - for just ends - - -.” See the Quran's partly immoral moral code, partly unethical ethical code, partly unjust sharia laws, etc.
012 46/3e: "- - - (created*) for a term appointed - - -". Everything is created "for a term appointed" - Allah predestines everything.
013 46/3f: "- - - those who reject Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many "distance" inducing names for non-Muslims.
014 46/3g: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam.
015 46/3h: "- - - those who reject Faith turn away from that whereof they are warned". Not strange as at least a number of them saw things were wrong in Muhammad's new religion.
016 46/4a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.</+>
017 46/4b: "- - - invoke besides Allah - - -". See 25/18a above.
018 46/4c: "Show me (Muhammad*) what it is they (pagan gods*) have created on earth, or have they a share in the heavens (plural and wrong*)?". And show us something Allah clearly has created on Earth - facts, not just loose claims. And has Allah really a share in Heaven - please proofs, not just strong, but cheap and invalid words. Muhammad always claimed proofs from others, so it is clear proofs are valuable - but he never was able to prove anything himself. (When Muslims claim it is primitive or something similar to ask for proofs for the Quran and Allah, just remind them that Muhammad frequently asked for proofs from everyone else.)
019 46/4d: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.
020 46/4e: “Bring me (Muhammad*) a Book (revealed) before this (as a proof*) - - -“. Wrong. A book in itself proves nothing – it is as easy to falsify a book as it is to falsify speech. (F.x. the Quran can well be a falsification – made by Muhammad or someone (it at least is not a real product from a god).) Contradicted by realities. Actually this verse is naïve.
021 46/4f: "- - - knowledge - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it normally refers to religious and related knowledge. Other sciences - even medicine - were "foreign knowledge" and not good (f. x. most doctors in Muslim area through the early and medieval times were non-Muslims.
022 46/5a: "And who is more astray than one who invokes besides Allah such as will not answer him (also Allah has never clearly answered anybody - if Islam could prove such an unmistakable answer, you bet they had told about it*) to the Day of Judgment, and who (in fact) are unconscious to their call (on them)- - -" If the Quran is without mistakes and tells only and the full truth, all non-Muslims are astray. If there are mistakes in the Quran, then all Muslims are astray - because then the book is not from a god and Islam a false religion - (and most likely also a lot of non-Muslims, as hardly all gods are real).
023 46/5b: "- - - invoke besides Allah - - -". See 25/18a above.
025 46/6a: "- - - (- - - Resurrection) - - -". See 7/158 above.
026 46/6b: "- - - they (the false gods*) will be hostile to them (the pagans*) - - -". According to the Quran the pagan gods will be given life at the Day of Doom and reject their "followers".
027 46/7a: “- - - Our (Allah’s*) Clear Signs - - .” There are no clear signs from Allah in all the Quran – see 2/39b or 2/99 above.
028 46/7b: “- - - the Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.
029 46/7c: “- - - the Unbelievers say (to Muhammad*)- - -". A historical anomaly.
030 46/7d: “- - - the Unbelievers say (to Muhammad*)- - -: .This is evident - - -". 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.
031 46/7e: “- - - the Truth (the Quran*) - - -.” See 2/2b, 13/1g and 40/75 above.
032 46/8a: "He (Muhammad*) has forged it". Already at that time many saw that something was wrong. But Muhammad became too strong economically and military.
033 46/8b: “Say: ’Had I (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
###034 46/8c: “Say: ’Had I (Muhammad*) forged it (the Quran*), then can ye obtain no single (blessing) for me from Allah.” What an unbeatable proof!!!
Actually Muhammad is said to have "proved" that he was a prophet, by answering 3 cryptic questions brought by Uqbab Abu Mu’ayt from Jewish rabbis in Medina - he got the answers from Allah via Gabriel. The first concerned the “seven sleepers”. Any god had known the story is made up - a Christian legend (some Muslims say it is copied from an older Jewish legend, but it is as wrong anyhow) - but Muhammad did not know this. The second concerned Alexander the Great (Dhu’l Quarnayn - an Arab name for him) - and Muhammad answered fairy tales any god had known were wrong. The third concerned the Holy Spirit - and Muhammad had no real answer. But the conclusion after the fiasco (it was not documented then that it was a big fiasco) was clear: The story was taken to be an unmistakable proof for that Muhammad was a prophet. Worse: EVEN TODAY WHEN WE EASILY SEE WHAT IS WRONG, MUSLIMS REFUSES TO ADMIT THE OBVIOUS AND TRY TO EXPLAIN THE ERRORS AWAY - AND RECKON THE WRONG INFORMATION AS SURE PROOF OF HIS BEING A REAL PROPHET, IN SPITE OF THAT NO GOD HAD GIVEN HIM ANSWERS SO FAR FROM THE REALITY. It should be a matter of doubt for any thinking person - but then Muslims are not thought how to think, but only to accept and obey. This really is an interesting “proof”.
Besides: The criteria for really being a prophet, are:
Have the gift of and close enough connection to a god for making prophesies.
Makes prophesies which always or at least mostly come true.
Makes so frequent and/or essential prophesies, that it is a clear part of his mission.
A few things Muhammad said, came true – like it has to do for a person saying many things through many years – and most of what he said which did not come true, was forgotten (also this is what normally happens if it is nothing spectacular). But he did not see the future correctly often - actually he statistically and according to the laws of probability should have "hit the mark" far more often by sheer chance than he did - there just are a few cases where Muslims will claim he foretold something correctly, and few if any of them are "perfect hits". But then the Quran makes it pretty clear that even though he was intelligent, he had little fantasy and that he also was nearly unable to make innovative thinking (nearly all his tales and his ideas in reality were "borrowed" ones - though often twisted to fit his new religion).
The main things here are that Muhammad never indicated that anything of what he said was meant as prophesies, that he never indicated, not to mention claimed, that he had the gift of prophesying, that it nowhere is documented that all/most of what he said about the future came true (point 2 above), and finally that both he and Islam said and says that there were no miracles connected to Muhammad “except the Quran”; prophesying is a kind of miracle -seeing what has not yet happened). (This fact that Islam admits there were no miracle connected to Muhammad also is a solid proof for that all the miracles connected to Muhammad mentioned in the Hadiths, are made up stories). Also see 30/40a and 30/46a, and we also should add that his favorite wife (and infamous child wife) Aishah according to Hadiths (f. x. Al-Bukhari) states that anyone saying Muhammad could foresee things, were wrong.
Verse 7/188b also is very relevant here: "If I (Muhammad*) had knowledge of the Unseen (= what is hidden and what has not happened yet*), I should have - - -". IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT MUHAMMAD DID NOT HAVE THE PROPHETS' ABILITY TO SEE "THE UNSEEN" - he was no real prophet.
Also relevant here is that the original title of the Jewish prophets was not "prophet" but "seer" - one who saw at least parts of the unseen. (F. x. 1. Sam. 9/9, 1. Chr. 26/28, 1.Chr.29/29, Amos 7/12, Mic. 3/7 - some places the two titles even are used side by side). Muhammad so definitely was no seer - prophet - even according to his own words; he had no "knowledge of the unseen".
Many liked the title prophet, and there have been made other definitions for the name - the most common of these are "one who brings messages from a god", or "one who represents a god", or "one who acts/talks on behalf of a god". But the fact remains: Without being able to prophesy, he or she is no real prophet. A messenger for someone or something - ok. An apostle - ok. But not a real prophet.
***And this is a fact no Muslim will admit: Muhammad in reality simply was no real prophet or seer. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself – or perhaps an apostle – but not a real prophet. He only “borrowed” that impressive and imposing title. It is up to anyone to guess why.
Also see 30/40 and 30/46.
035 46/8d: "- - - (blessing) for me (Muhammad*) from Allah". Allah could not and cannot give blessing to anyone unless he exists and is a god. (Blessing from someone belonging to the dark forces, may hardly be a blessing).
036 46/8e: "He (Allah*) knows best that whereof ye (skeptics of Muhammad*) talk - - -". Allah knows everything according to the Quran, but why then 2/233h above?
037 46/8f: "And He (Allah*) is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah can forgive exactly nobody unless he exists and is a god.
038 46/8g: "And He (Allah*) is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.
039 46/9a: "I (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
040 46/9b: "I (Muhammad*) am no bringer of newfangled doctrine - - -". If not, all old traces are well hidden - no traces of anything similar has been found older than 610 AD when Muhammad started his new religion.
041 46/9c: "I (Muhammad*) am no bringer of newfangled doctrine among the Messengers - - -". Wrong. Muhammad's teachings fundamentally was so different from the prophets in the old Jewish line in story (the only of the prophets he meant, of whom there are other sources), in moral, in ethics, in religious basic thoughts, in judicial questions, that he very clearly is outside that line - far outside. This is especially clear when one compares with Jesus and his New Covenant (f. x. Luke 22/20) - a covenant Muslims never mention and one most of them have never heard about.
042 46/9d: (A46/10): Does the original Arab text mean: “I (Muhammad*) am no bringer of newfangled doctrine - - -.” = I bring no new religion – the religion I bring is an old one. Or: “I am not the first of (Allah’s) apostles - - -“ = there have been apostles before me. Or “I am no innovator among the apostles - - -“ = not unlike the first alternative, but with added stress on the meaning that he does not change the old religion. Or: “I am but a human being like all of Allah’s message-bearers who preceded me” = quite different meaning from the other 3. Clear language in the old Arab scriptures? And these variants as so often before also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning. Allah (?) really uses a clear language.
###043 46/9e: "- - - nor do I (Muhammad*) know what will be done with me or with you". Muhammad was unable to "see the unseen" - he was no "seer" (the original title for prophets according to the Bible - see 1. Sam. 9/9, 9/11, 9/18, 9/19, 2. Sam. 15/27, 1. Kings 17/13, 1. Chr. 9/22, 26/28, 29/29, 2. Chr. 16/7, 16/10, 19/2, 29/25, Micah 3/7) - no prophet. Many have liked the imposing title prophet through the times, and different definitions have been made for that title. But a prophet unable to make prophesies, is no prophet.
This verse also is one of the proofs for that when Muslims claim Muhammad made prophesies, their claims are not true. There are a few more verses in the Quran proving the same, f.x. 6/50a, 7/188b, 10/20c-d,10/49a-b, 72/26. Together they are so strong that Islam says "there is no miracle connected to Muhammad, except the Quran" (prophesying is a kind of miracle - "to be able to see the unseen). But all the same mullahs, imams and others tell their congregations about the prophesies - and the miracles - of Muhammad, with the result that many lay Muslims honestly believe in it. Honesty in religion? But remember that lies for Islam often is not a sin!! (Al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie, Kitman - the lawful half-truth, etc. Specialties of Islam - you do not find similar in other of the big religions. One more proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
044 46/9f: (A46/11): “- - - nor do I (Muhammad*) know what will be done with me or with you (people*).” Ok – but in this world (Tabari, Al-Hasan al-Basri), or in both this and the next (Baydawi)? To guess is free. And also to guess is child’s game when the language is vague and there is no-one who knows the answer.
045 46/9g: "- - - (Muhammad*) - - - among the Messengers - - -". See 63/5a above.
046 46/9h: "I (Muhammad*) follow but that (the Quran*) which is revealed - - -". Is the Quran really revealed? - and in case by whom? A book of that quality is not from any god. Then the alternatives in case are: Dark forces, an illness (f.x. TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), or one or more cold human brains.
047 46/9i: "I (Muhammad*) follow but that (the Quran*) which is revealed to me - - -". No omniscient god revealed a book with so many errors like the Quran to Muhammad or to anyone else. It would be both an insult and heresy to accuse a god of such a product.
048 46/9j: "I (Muhammad*) follow but that (the Quran*) which is revealed to me by Inspiration - - -". Muhammad claimed he got most of his messages by inspiration - a most convenient means: Impossible for others to check, easy to subtract from, easy to add to, easy to make up convenient points. As Muhammad claimed to be in the Jewish tradition of prophets, we also add that the word "inspiration" never is mentioned in the Bible in such connections - also a difference between the old prophets and the self proclaimed prophet Muhammad.
049 46/9k: “- - - I (Muhammad*) am but a Warner, open and clear.” Yes, in 620 AD he only was a self proclaimed warner. Things changed and verses were really abrogated when he got more power a few years later. Comments like for 46/135 below. 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).
050 46/10a: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
051 46/10b: “If (this teaching) be from Allah - - -". No omniscient god ever backed a teaching based on so many errors.
***052 46/10c: “If (this teaching) be from Allah, and ye (non-Muslims) reject it, and a witness from among the Children of Israel testifies to its similarity (with earlier scriptures (what is Muhammad’s definition of “similarity” here?*)), and has believed (or pretended to believe - sometimes that was necessary to survive*) while ye are arrogant, (how unjust ye are) - - -”. This sentence is a bit complicated, but what Muhammad said, was that a Jew agreed – true or not true - to that the Quran was similar to old Jewish scriptures, and that non-Muslims then were unjust not accepting that Muhammad is a real prophet.
Tales like this are quite common among self proclaimed prophets trying to prove their new religion or sect. They may be true or not true.
We only have Muhammad’s word for this - a man who had initiated or himself done a lot of dubious deeds included lying/betrayal, and on top of that had a lot to gain from making people believe him, a man who lusted for power - and one who was teaching a dubious tale. There are no other sources. The tale may be true or not true.
We do not know how many Jews lived in the neighborhood of Mecca/Medina. But in only one tribe he destroyed, there were some 700 men (all murdered – in Khaybar. Plus the 29 from the peace delegation he invited and murdered earlier). As families tended to be large, that should mean some 2ooo-3ooo women and children in addition (all made slaves). And there were three big tribes (and some small ones) and thus thousands of Jews - and the women at least here cannot be omitted, as they tend to be more religious than men. It would be most surprising if not one or a few of them wanted to humor the power-that-be or really changed the religion - from belief or greed or fright or other reasons.
But all the other – thousands and thousands - of Jews said Muhammad was wrong. This even when he marched against them with his army, and they knew that to humor him meant “no war”. Even when they had to give him all their farms and become day workers for him - still knowing that humoring him meant they would keep their possessions if they in time had humored him. Even those who had to flee, losing everything they could not carry - knowing that if they humored him, they could stay. Not to mention the 700 men of the Qurayza tribe - knowing they were murdered by the half-dozens through the day and far into the night, and that humoring him perhaps could save their lives. All said no; Muhammad was too wrong to be possible to accept even then.
Even if it was correct that one or a few Jew said yes - which well may be true: “One swallow makes no summer”. (It also may be a made up story - that often happens in new sects to "prove" they are right.)
All in all: This “proof” has no value. According to the Jews Muhammad was very wrong. And even more: We still have the same books of Moses - the Torah was unabridged for at least 1000 years before Muhammad and still is according to science – and the rest of the Jewish Bible (the OT) that the Jews in Arabia had. Anyone can read this and see they were right.
#053 46/10d: (A46/12): "(This refers to*) 'a prophet like himself'". This is quoted from a speech Moses made to his fellow Jews. There are nearly identical quotes in 5. Mos. 18/15 and 18/18. Islam and Muslims claim the word "brothers" refers to Arabs, even though obviously the brother of a Jew is another Jew. See the text about "Samples of claims about Muhammad in the Bible" under 7/157e above. The claim is based on a desperate need to find Muhammad in the Bible, as the Quran states he is foretold there, not on reality. But if Muslims do not find him there, the Quran is wrong once more, and Islam cannot afford mistakes in the Quran - it means that something is wrong with Islam. (Remembering in addition that Muhammad in reality was no real prophet - ha was unable to make prophesies - the claim is nonsense).
054 46/10e: "- - - Children of Israel - - -". Jews - literally children of the Jewish patriarch Jacob, who was renamed Israel by Yahweh. A historical anomaly.
055 46/10f: "- - - truly - - -". See f.x. 2/2b and 45/3a above.
056 46/10g: "- - - Allah guides not a people unjust". Allah is no good guide for anyone if his guidebook is the Quran with all its errors, etc.
057 46/10h: "- - - a people unjust". One of Muhammad's many distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.
058 46/10i: "- - - unjust". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.
059 46/11a: "The Unbelievers say - - -". A historical anomaly.
060 46/11b: "The Unbelievers say - - -: 'If (this Message) were - - -'".See 46/7d above.
061 46/11c: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.
062 46/11d: "- - - (this Message (the Quran*)) - - -". Is it really a message? And in case from whom, ad no god ever was involved in a book of that quality?
063 46/11e: "This is an (old) falsehood". There were good reasons for saying so - everybody saw that Muhammad's stories just were twists on old stories, and many saw that things were wrong. But the robber baron and later warlord Muhammad became too strong and forced a foothold for his religion on the people - a foothold they rapidly enlarged, mainly by weapons or money or permission to steal/rob/enslave.
064 46/12a: "- - - the Book of Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.
065 46/12b: “- - - this Book (the Quran) confirms (it (the Torah*)) - - -”. See 46/10c above, and especially the last lines. No one knew or knows the Torah better than the Jews. Wrong - the books of Moses are a bit harsh, but far from as harsh as the Quran, and in addition there are lots of basic divergences. The Quran is no confirmation of the Books of Moses - easy to check for anyone able to read. Many similarities as Muhammad tried to copy those books, but too many and too deep differences. And remember: Both science and Islam have been unable to prove any falsifications in the Bible, included in the Torah - some mistakes, but no falsifications.
066 46/12c: "- - - in the Arabic tongue - - -". To have a text written in Arab, meant much to Muhammad, who for one thing had an inferiority feeling compared to Jews and Christians who had holy books, and for another he seems to have believed that the written word was a proof for that it was the truth (this was a feeling many had until relatively recently - what was written, had to be true). Some of his argumentation some places in the Quran indicates this, even though it is as easy to falsify or invent a written as a spoken word.
067 46/12d: "- - - (the Quran*) in the Arabic tongue - - -". A historical anomaly.
068 46/12e: "- - - to admonish the unjust - - -". Not easy to do in a just and fair way from a book with a partly immoral moral code, a partly unethical ethical code, a partly unjust sharia law, etc.
069 46/12f: "- - - the unjust - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.
070 46/12g: "- - - unjust - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, its partly unethical ethical code, its partly unjust judicial code, etc.
071 46/12h: “- - - Glad Tidings - - -.” Wrong. Islam is no glad tiding, except for 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 also for the minor percentage of people that need a religion to lean on – at least for the possible ones where the old pagan religion was not strong enough. But for the majority of people no. Even not for the majority of the Muslims.
072 46/12i: "- - - those who do right". Muslims.
073 46/12j: "- - - do right". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.
074 46/13a: "Verily - - -". See f.x. 2/2b and 45/3a above.
075 46/13b: "- - - those who say, 'Our Lord is Allah". Muslims.
076 46/13c: "- - - (on that Path) - - -".
077 46/13d: "- - - on them (Muslims*) shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve (in the possible next life*)". Correct if Allah exists, is a major god and is correctly descried in the Quran. Wrong if not.
078 46/14a: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". Muslims going to end in Paradise in the claimed next life.
079 46/14b: "- - - the Garden - - -". The Quran's Paradise - see 10/9f above.
080 46/14c: "- - - dwelling therein (Paradise*) (for aye) - - -". Verse 11/108c may indicate that it is not quite forever - Muslim scholars are unsure what that verse really means.
081 46/14d: "- - - (good) deeds". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like they, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and partly unethical ethical code.
#082 46/15a: "We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents - - -". This is clearly contradicted by 6/151: "Come, I (Muhammad*) will rehearse what Allah hath really prohibited you from: (Among other things*) - - - be good to your parents". (But right shall be right: This point in 6/151 is one of the ones Muslim scholars agree on must be wrong in the Quran, and most likely they are right. But then: How much more is wrong in the book, and how can an omniscient god make mistakes?)
In reality: This sentence is one of the plus points for the Quran.
083 46/15b: "- - - Thy (Allah's*) favor which Thou hast bestowed upon me (a Muslim*)". Literally everything in a Muslim's life are claimed to be gifts from Allah.
084 46/15c: "- - - work righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.
085 46/15d: "- - - truly - - -". See 2/2b above.
086 46/16a: "- - - the best of their (Muslims’*) deeds - - - ill deeds". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.
087 46/16b: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". Muslims going to end in Paradise in the claimed next life.
088 46/16c: "- - - the Garden - - -". The Quran's Paradise - see 10/9f above.
089 46/16d: “- - - a promise of truth (the words of the Quran concerning Paradise*) - - -”. See 13/1g and 40/75 - the promise of Paradise is part of it.
090 46/16e: "- - - truth - - -". see 2/2b, 13/1g and 40/75 above.
091 46/17a: "Have Faith!" = Believe in Allah!.
092 46/17b: “For the promise of Allah is true.” That may be - if he exists (there is not one single proof, and the number of tries with invalid proofs, etc., make no good impression, as that normally is the hallmarks of cheats and deceivers). But there are good reasons for doubt, as the only source for information is the Quran, and very much there is not correct - or doubtful. In a way worse: There never was a proved case of Allah keeping a promise. Lots of claims, but not one proved case - nowhere and never. (The best proof for this, is Islam's silence on this point.)
093 46/17c: "This is but tales of the ancient". They may well have been correct - there is little or nothing in the Quran which is not "borrowed" from other sources - and most of the stories in the book are from unreliable sources - legends, apocryphal (made up) scriptures, folklore, and even fairy tales.
094 46/18a: "Such are they against whom it is proved the Sentence among the previous generations of Jinns and men that have passed away, for they will be (utterly) lost." This obscure sentence seems to mean that there are some bad persons - and Jinns - sentenced to Hell, and they are like the bad one in verse 46/17 above.
095 46/18b: "- - - they will be (utterly) lost". They will end in Hell.
####096 46/19a: "And to all (humans*) are (assigned) degrees according to the deeds which they (have done) - - -". In the Quran the balance between the good and bad deeds you have done on Earth, are more central for whether you are to end in Hell or Heaven than in especially NT, where the goodness of and forgiveness from the god is more central concerning this, than in the Quran (though this counts in the Quran, too). The stressing on your deeds, is a good "carrot and whip" for leaders on Earth: "Be obedient and act according to the Quran, and you will end in Heaven - if not you go to Hell! And if you are extra willing and obedient, you will end in a better part of Paradise, whereas if you refuse to obey me and Allah, you will end in the hottest part of Hell!" This especially was a cheap means for Muhammad to use if the religion was a made up one - and as mentioned: At least the Quran with all its errors, etc. has no connections to a god.
To complete the picture: The Quran's paradise is not too difficult to enter, because according to the Quran, good deeds counted more than bad ones - up to 10 times more. Especially if the religion is a false one and Allah a made up god - which all real facts indicate, on top of that they prove the Quran is not from a god - this may merit this comment: Populism is nothing new among politicians. One more difference to especially NT - and one more indication for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
###097 46/19b: "And to all (humans*) are (assigned) degrees according to the deeds which they (have done), and in order that (Allah) may recompense their (peoples'*) deeds (good or bad ones*) - - -". In Heaven there are several gardens - 4 or 6 or more according to Hadiths - plus there are the higher heavens for the really top Muslims. To be able to place each person in the right place, they have to be given degrees of goodness and split in groups to be sent to the correct place in the 7 Heavens/Paradise.
One topic here you NEVER hear Muslims mention, is how the claim that you will have your wife/wives, children and family around in Paradise, can be fulfilled, unless absolutely all of them get the same degree as you and thus merit the same garden and Heaven like you. You may be a good Muslim and get grade 4. But two of your sons were killed in battle for Muhammad/Allah and automatically goes to the best parts part of the ordinary Paradise, say grade 6, and one black sheep of a son just sneaks into Heaven and the lowest degree, a plains 1. Your other 3 sons get satisfying 3s and 4s, whereas your daughters are good girls and get 4s and 5s, but their husbands only makes 2s and 3s. Obvious things like such results of human nature are never - never - mentioned when the nice and populist promises are made about you are going to have your family around you in Paradise. Never mentioned neither by the Quran, as far as we know neither by Hadiths, and definitely not by Muslims debating religion with non-Muslims, or by mullahs or imams or others trying to tease you to become a Muslim.
098 46/19c: "- - - injustice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, partly unethical ethical code, partly unjust judicial code, etc.
099 46/20a: "- - - the Day the Unbelievers will be placed before the Fire - - -". The Day of Doom.
100 46/20b: "- - - the Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.
101 46/20c: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.
102 46/20d: "Ye (non-Muslims and bad Muslims*) received your good things in the life of the world, and ye took your pleasure out of them: but today (the Day of Doom*) shall ye be recompensed with a Penalty of humiliation (Hell*) - - -". This is the Quran's standard way of even out and of explaining why some bad people had good lives whereas good Muslims often had lousy lives: The bad ones had wanted - and Allah had granted them (there is nowhere explained how this is possible to combine with Allah's total predestination according to an unchangeable Plan) - a good life now, but they have to pay in the next life. Good and soothing to know for the poor ones - your own success is good, but other people's downfall is not too bad either. It also is a warning: Be good and obedient and do not end like the bad ones.
103 46/20e: "- - - a Penalty of humiliation". See 3/77b above.
104 46/20f: "- - - without a just cause". But some or many had a just cause: They saw that something was seriously wrong with the Quran and thus with Muhammad and with his religion.
105 46/20g: "- - - just - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, partly unethical ethical code, partly unjust judicial code, etc.
106 46/20h: "- - - transgressed - - -". This word and the corresponding word "transgressor" normally are used in claimed cases of religious transgression. But beware that when the Quran uses words like these, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
***107 46/21a: "Hud". A prophet Muhammad and the Quran claimed once lived in Arabia. There exists no trace from him outside the claims in the Quran. He in case was a self proclaimed prophet with problems similar to Muhammad's and was used by Muhammad to show his own followers that former prophets had been disbelieved, too, and that thus Muhammad's situation was normal for prophets. There is a Muslim rumor that there is a chance for that he is the same person as the little known Biblical person Eber. In that case he was the great great grandson of Noah "at a time when the forefathers of the Jews were Arabs living in south Arabia before some of them emigrated to Mesopotamia, where among others Abraham was born (in Ur of the Chaldeans according to the Bible*)". It is a kind of fun when you read about ideology and/or religion and/or nationalism, etc. to see how many - and especially populists - tries to grab honor from wherever they can find it. (The quote here is freely translated from Swedish after A6/47 - comment to verse 6/65).
Another point is that if the 'Ad was a mighty tribe, Hud could not be identical to Eber - It would be impossible to make up a mighty tribe from a one or maximum a few of Noah's descendants or few servants - the only remaining humans on Earth according to the Quran, in just 3-4 generations. But this kind of claims is typical for Muslims and Islam - you meet it too often: They put forth nice claims about themselves or bad ones about the opponents, without taking all "facts" into consideration. In that way they get fitting "information" or "arguments" which may sound good, but which pulverizes when you check them. When such things are done too often, it gives a bad impression and destroys credibility.
108 46/21b: "'Ad". A tribe from old Arab folklore. It may or may not have existed, but if it existed, it is little likely they came to an end the way Muhammad - as normal without the slightest proof - claimed. The Quran claims Hud was their prophet. If they existed, it according to the Quran was sometime between Noah and Moses.
109 46/21c: "- - - (Hud) one of 'Ad's own brethren - - -". Muhammad claimed prophets were sent to their own people (neither in the Bible, nor in the Quran this is quite correct). Even if this was not quite correct also in the Quran, you will find this claim stressed many places in the Quran - and "facts" some places "adjusted" a little to make them fit this claim (f.x. facts(?) connected to Abraham, Lot, and Moses). This fitted Muhammad's claim that naturally a prophet to Arabs had to be an Arab - like himself. If you read the Quran, you will meet this phenomenon several places.
110 46/22d: "- - - he (Hud*) warned his people about the winding Sand-tracts - - -". This sentence hangs in the air, because it is not said anything why he warned his people about them and what the danger was. If not the meaning simply is that he warned his people living among the sand-tracts = in the desert. The language in the Quran sometimes/too often is unclear.
111 46/21e: "Truly - - -". See f.x. 45/3a above.
112 46/21f: "- - - the Penalty of a Mighty Day". See 3/77b above.
113 46/21g: "- - - a Mighty Day". The Day of Doom.
114 46/22a: "They (the 'Ad tribe*) - - -". A Historical anomaly.
115 46/22b: "They (the 'Ad tribe*) said: 'Hast thou (Hud*) come - - -'". See 46/7d above.
116 46/22c: "Hast thou (Hud*) come in order to turn us aside from our gods?" An exact parallel to questions Muhammad got - "ergo" Muhammad's problems were normal for prophets, and thus Muhammad had to be a normal prophet. Good for his followers to "know". Most stories in the Quran about claimed or real(?) prophets were made parallels to Muhammad's situation, and thus "documented" that his situation was normal for prophets, and that he thus was a normal prophet.
117 46/22d: "Then bring upon us (skeptics*) the (calamity) with which thou (Hud*) dost threaten us (skeptics*) with". A new exact parallel to Muhammad's position: Requests for proofs Muhammad never was able to deliver. See 46/22c just above.
118 46/22-26: A close parallel to Muhammad's position in 620 AD, followed by what Muhammad threatened his contemporaries with if they would not accept his new religion. This is a technique he uses many times in the Quran, and it "told" his followers that his position was normal for prophets, and thus he could claim to be a normal prophet. For his followers it surely also helped to be told that the bad people of the past were punished, and thus that their "bad contemporaries surly would be punished, too. (Well, in some cases they instead became good Muslims - Muhammad only had those two endings on those tales.) Also notice that Muhammad often claimed that the punished societies were mightier and richer than his contemporary Arabs, something which should make both his already omnipotent god and the impression on his listeners even stronger.
119 46/23a: "He (Hud*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
120 46/23b: "- - - Knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
121 46/23c: "- - - ignorance - - -". As for words related to knowledge, see 26/83a above.
122 46/24a: "- - - they (the 'Ad tribe*) - - -". A Historical anomaly.
123 46/24b: "- - - they (the 'Ad tribe*) said: 'This cloud will - - -'". See 46/7d above.
124 46/24c: "- - - a grievous Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.
125 46/25a: "Thus We (Allah*) recompense those given to sin". If Allah exists and is a major god.
126 46/25b: "- - - sin". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.
127 46/26a: "And We (Allah*) had firmly established then (the 'Ad tribe*) in a (prosperity and) power which We have not given to you (ye Quraysh) - - -". When you read the Quran, it is striking that more or less always when Allah destroys a people, it was a more rich and powerful people than Muhammad's contemporary Arabs. It made his already omniscient god and also the impression on Muhammad's Arabs greater - but did an omnipotent god need to become greater?
128 46/26b: "- - - (- - - Quraysh) - - -". The leading tribe in Mecca. They opposed and disbelieved Muhammad strongly.
129 46/26c: "- - - the Signs of Allah - - -". Wrong. There never existed signs clearly showing Allah - if one had ever existed, you bet Muslims had told you.
130 46/26d: "- - - that which they (the 'Ad tribe*) used to mock at". Islam. If you believe Islam existed perhaps only 3 - 4 generations after Noah (see 46/21a above), it is up to you. But neither science nor Islam has found any reliable traces from Islam older than 610 AD when Muhammad stared his mission.
131 46/27a: "We (Allah*) destroyed aforetime populations around you (people) - - -" - leaving the ruins, the empty buildings, the legends and fairy tales about former people. All of which Muhammad claimed - of course no proofs - were destroyed and killed because of sins against Allah. Believe it if you want. No matter: Allah was and is a bloody god.
132 46/27b: “- - - Signs - - -.” Invalid as proof for Allah. See 2/39b above.
133 46/28a: "Why then was no help forthcoming to them from those whom they worshipped as gods, besides Allah - - -". Add one disturbing fact: Why is there not one proved case anywhere in the world through 1400 years and more of help from Allah? - many claims, but not one proved case.
134 46/28b: "- - - gods, besides Allah - - -". See 25/18a above.
135 46/28c: "- - - falsehood - - -". Correct if Allah exists and is the only god. Wrong if not.
136 46/28d: "- - - falsehood - - -". In the Quran this word mostly means "other gods than Allah" or "other religions than Islam".
137 46/28e: "- - - falsehood - - -". Beware that when this word is used in normal ways in the Quran, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
138 46/28f: "- - - (pagan gods*) were their (non-Muslims'*) invention". A relevant question here is: Whose invention is the Quran, as it is not from any god? - and whose invention is Allah if he just is a fiction in a book full of errors, etc.? (This last question may be extra relevant here, as Allah originally was the pagan Arab god al-Lah whom Muhammad renamed slightly and claimed was his monotheistic only god.)
**139 46/29a: "- - - Jinns - - -". A being "borrowed" from old Arab folklore and local pagan religion - an Arabism. You never find it in the Bible, even though Muhammad claimed it to be the same god and the same basic religion. Jinns were/are physical beings - created from fire (or from excessively hot wind is said one place), not spirits. (Fire is something physical - to be reasonably exact it is smoke so hot that it emits light, and Jinns are thus made from hot smoke. Jinns also can marry humans according to the old Islamic laws - something which would be difficult if they were not material. NB: No such marriage has ever provably happened. Also note here that they "returned to their people" - their fellow Jinns - and not to "their fellow spirits": They had their main similarities to people, even though they were invisible.)
140 46/29b: "- - - the Quran - - -". The Quran is the name of that specific copy of the claimed "Mother Book" claimed sent down to Muhammad, and thus also a historical anomaly if Allah not predestines everything 100% - and thus man has no piece of free will which automatically and according to the laws of chaos would change things over time and centuries and millennia.
141 46/29c: "- - - (- - - sin)". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. We also may mention that just this word often covers very different deeds, acts, words, and thoughts in the Quran and Islam, than in more normal religions (Islam is a religion of war - in spite of its loud slogans), not to mention how much its meaning in the Quran often differs from the basic of all human moral; "do against others like you want others do against you". Read the surahs from Medina and weep.
One small remark: As Yahweh's religion and f.x. moral code at many points are totally different from Allah's, you may qualify for Yahweh's Paradise even if Muslims condemn you to Hell - if both exist. One more of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
142 46/29-32: Just for the record: This tale is not from the Bible.
143 46/30a: "- - - they (the Jinns listening to Muhammad*) - - -". H historical anomaly - at least in the boob.
144 46/30b: "O our people!" Notice that the Jinns compare themselves to people, not so spirits - this according to Muhammad (who ought to have corrected them if they were wrong - or perhaps made the story himself*) and the Quran.
145 46/30c: “We (some Jinns*) have heard a Book (the Quran*) revealed after Moses, confirming what came before it - - -”. Jinns were beings “borrowed” from Arab fairy tales, legends and from the old Arab pagan religion – Muhammad mostly based his world on the (contorted) biblical legends - - - and on Arab traditions (the rest of the world made little or no traces in Allah’s religion – nothing from Europe, Africa, the Americas or Australia f. ex. But may be the uneducated, warlike Arabs had done things almost correct in most of the religious aspects in their pagan religion? – only the Arabs of the ones without a Book?).
146 46/30d: "- - - Moses - - -". A historical anomaly.
147 46/30e: "- - - confirming what (Torah, Bible*) came before it (the Quran*) - - -". As for confirming the Torah and also the Bible: See 40/75 and 46/10.
148 46/30f: “- - - it (the Quran*) guides (men) - - -”. A book with that many mistakes and invalid “proofs” etc. is no reliable guide.
149 46/30g: “- - - it (the Quran*) guides men to the Truth - - -”. Can a lot of mistakes, contradictions, wrong logic, and even a few clear lies guide somebody to the truth?
150 46/30h: "- - - the Truth - - -" If it refers to the real Books of Moses, perhaps most of it is true (there are some mistakes, especially concerning genesis). But If it refers to a claimed earlier version of the Quran like Muhammad often - no documentation (surprised?) - claimed, it must be remarked that the Quran at best can be partly true. Also see 13/1g and 40/75 above..
151 46/30i: "- - - a Straight Path". The road to Allah and the Quran's Paradise. Also see 10/9f above.
152 46/31a: "O our people - - -" The expression is repeated without being "arrested" neither by Allah, nor by Muhammad - Jinns must be reasonably similar to humans. See 46/30b above.
153 46/31b: "- - - hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah (Muhammad*) - - -". A dangerous deed if Allah does not exist, or even worse; if he exists, but is no god.
154 46/31c: "- - - hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah (Muhammad*) - - -". This "proved" to his followers that even Jinns listened to Muhammad!
155 46/31d: "- - - hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah (Muhammad*) - - -". This is one of the points which indicate that also Jinns may end in Paradise. But there is nowhere said anything about their life in Paradise, and it also is made pretty clear in the Quran that most Jinns end in Hell.
156 46/31e: "- - - the one who invites (you) to Allah (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
157 46/31f: "- - - believe in Him (Allah*) - - -". See 46/31b above.
158 46/31g: "He (Allah*) will forgive you (people*) your faults - - -". Only 2 can forgive: The victim and a god. Is Allah a god - if he exists? There only is a claim from a man with dubious moral, but a liking for power, wealth for bribes, and for women, which tells this.
159 46/31h: "- - - a Penalty Grievous".
160 46/32a: "- - - the one who invites (you) to Allah (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
151 46/32b: "- - - cannot frustrate (Allah's Plan) on earth - - -". The predestination again - what Allah has planned and decided, nobody and nothing can change.
162 46/32c: "- - - no protection can he (non-Muslim*) have besides Allah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is a good protector. 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.
163 46/32d: "- - - (gods*) besides Allah - - -". See 2/165c, 2/255a, 6/106b, and especially 25/18 above.
164 46/32e: "- - - such (non-Muslim*) men (Islam is a men's religion*) (wander) in manifest error". Not if the god they believe in - f.x. Yahweh - exists, and especially not if Allah on top of that is a made up god (quite likely, as the Quran is a made up book, or at least not from any god with all its errors).
165 46/32f: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.
166 46/32g: "- - - error - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this in religious connection like here, it partly is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, and partly in accordance with the Quran's unreliable texts - f.x. full of mistakes.
167 46/33a: "- - - Allah, who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and earth - - -". Often claimed, never proved. See f. x. 11/7a, 21/56c+e, 41/15f and 45/22a+b above.
168 46/33b: “- - - heavens - - -.” Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.
169 46/33c: "- - - Allah - - - is able to give life to the dead - - -". See 7/158i above.
170 46/33d: "Yea, verily He (Allah*) has power over all things". He in case never has proved his power - there only are words and claims, both of which are cheap.
171 46/33e: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.
172 46/34a: "On the Day that the Unbelievers will be placed before the Fire - - -". The Day of Doom.
173 46/34b: "- - - the Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad-s many
174 46/34c: "- - - the Fire - - -". Hell.
175 46/34d: “Is this not the Truth? (= what was told in the Quran*)”. With all its mistakes etc. the Quran at best is partly true.
176 46/34e: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b, 13/1g and 40/75 above.
177 46/34f: "- - - the Penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.
178 46/34g: “- - - ye were wont to deny (truth (the Quran*))!” See 46/34f just above.
179 46/34h: "- - - ye (non-Muslims*) were wont to deny (truth)". Wrong, at least in some cases: They simply saw that much was seriously wrong in the Quran, and lived according to (may be) the real truth.
180 46/35a: "Therefore patiently persevere - - -". An expression non-Muslims should never forget is impressed and impressed on Muslims - persevere, and sooner or later the "enemy" gives in and you have won. It has been true too often. F. x. one of democracy’s weaknesses is that it has a tendency to tire in conflicts.
181 46/35b: "Therefore patiently persevere - - - and be in no haste about the (unbelievers)." One more that was strongly contradicted and abrogated later on: This verse is abrogated – made invalid - and contradicted by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/38, 3/85, 3/148, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 8/12, 8/38, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many bloody threats, but also verses advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 28 abrogations).
182 46/35c: “(Muhammad*) - - - be in no haste about the (unbelievers) - - -.” When he gained power he got more haste – f. ex. the reluctant Arabs (and a lot of others) that were not won by gifts and free plundering/enslaving, were won by the sword – in stark contradiction to what Muslims like to tell. Become Muslim or fight and die! 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).
183 46/35d: "On the Day - - -". The Day of Doom.
184 46/35e: "- - - the (Punishment) promised them (non-Muslims*) - - -". See 3/77b above.
185 46/35f: "- - - (it will be) as if they (the dead ones*) had not tarried (in the grave*) more than an hour in a single day". Remember this when you read in the Hadiths about punishment in the grave, a kind of purgatory (which does not purge) told about in Hadiths, but never mentioned in the Quran. According to verses like this, punishment in the grave cannot be true, simply because of the time factor - and because it is not mentioned in the Quran that any of the dead remembered such things at the Day of Doom or later.
186 46/35g: “(Thine (duty Muhammad is*) but) to proclaim the Message (the Quran*).” This was in 620 AD. The changes came in and after 622 AD 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)
187 46/35h: "- - - the Message (the Quran*) - - -". But is it really a message, as it is from no god? In case from whom?
188 46/35i: "- - - those who transgress - - -". One of Muhammad's many enemy picture inducing names for non-Muslims.
189 46/35j: "- - - transgress - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses this word - and also the word "transgressor - it normally means religious transgressing = everybody/everything not in accordance with the Quran and also with the Qurans partly immoral moral, ethical, judicial, and other codes.
