1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 49 -- AL-HUJURAT (The Inner Apartments)
20 June 2012
Revelation: Medina, 631 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 49/1a: "- - - Ye who believe!" Muslims - the Quran never uses this word but for Muslims.
003 49/1b: "Put not yourselves (ordinary Muslims*) forward before Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". You some places in the Quran notice that Muhammad demands a special position. He liked power and respect.
004 49/1c: "Put not yourselves (ordinary Muslims*) forward before Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". But (YA 4919) gives 4 possible meanings from the original Arab text and it’s clear and unmistakeable and easy to understand language in the Quran. Alternative number 4 is very interesting: "Look to the Quran and the Sunna (Hadiths*) of the Prophet (Muhammad*) - - - for guidance and let nothing else take precedence over them". This means that you shall live according to Muhammad's pre-medieval ways and thoughts and traditions and knowledge then, now and forever. Nothing man or science is able to find out takes precedence over this - the Quran and Hadiths are the final words, no matter how inhuman or wrong. No changes of moral, ethics, laws, etc. are possible (this is why Islam has no moral or ethical philosophy, only "what did Muhammad’s say or do in similar cases"?). Etc. A stagnant society.
005 49/1d: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his god and platform of power.
006 49/1e: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.
007 49/1f: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
008 49/1g: "- - - fear Allah - - -". Why as long as it is proved by the Quran that the Quran is not from any god? - and why as thus it is unlikely in the extreme that Allah exists? Allah after all only was a pagan god, al-Lah, Muhammad dressed up, and a god who has not one single time in all human knowledge provably manifested neither himself nor any of his heavenly underlings.
009 49/1h: “- - - Allah - - - hears and knows all things.” Not if he composed the Quran. See 13/1g and 40/75.
010 49/1i: “- - - Allah - - - hears and knows all things.” See 2/233h above.
011 49/1-5: How to behave towards "Allah and His Messenger Muhammad" - here on Earth in practice towards Muhammad. In addition to power, Muhammad liked respect. For a busy leader it also might be practical to restrict admission some.
012 49/2a: "- - - Ye who believe!" Muslims - the Quran never uses this word but for Muslims.
013 49/2b: "Raise not your (ordinary Muslims*) voices above of the prophet, nor speak aloud to him in talk - - -". See 49/1b-c above.
014 49/2c: "- - - the prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". But Muhammad was no real prophet. The definition of a prophet was a person who could see at least parts of the unseen, and thus a person who:
Has the gift of and close enough connection to a god for making prophesies.
Makes prophesies 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 any person saying many things through many years – and most of what he said which did not come true, was forgotten (also this is what normally happens if it is nothing spectacular). But he did not guess the future correctly often - actually he statistically and according to the laws of probability should have "hit the mark" far more often by sheer chance than he did - there just are a few cases where Muslims will claim he foretold something correctly, and few if any of them are "perfect hits". But then the Quran makes it pretty clear that even though he was intelligent, he had little fantasy, and that he also was nearly unable to make innovative thinking (nearly all his tales and his ideas in reality were "borrowed" ones - though often twisted to fit his new religion).
The main things here are that Muhammad never indicated that anything of what he said was meant as prophesies, that he never indicated, not to mention claimed, that he had the gift of prophesying - of "seeing the unseen" - that it nowhere is documented that all/most of what he said about the future came true (point 2 above), and finally that both he and Islam said and says that Muhammad was unable to see the unseen (extra revealing here is that the old Biblical title for a prophet, was "a seer" - one who saw the unseen (f.x. 1. Sam. 9/9)) and also that Islam even today admits 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 miracles connected to Muhammad "except the revelation of the Quran" also is a solid proof for that all the miracles connected to Muhammad mentioned in the Hadiths, are made up stories - but all the same many a mullah and imam and scholar use these stories, which Islam admits are made up ones, as "proofs" for that Muhammad had supernatural powers and was a prophet. Honesty is not the strong side of Muslim religious leaders.) 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) stated that anyone saying Muhammad could foresee things, were wrong.
Verse 7/188b also is very relevant here: "If I (Muhammad*) had knowledge of the Unseen (= what is hidden or what has not happened yet*), I should have - - -". IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT MUHAMMAD DID NOT HAVE THE PROPHETS' ABILITY TO SEE "THE UNSEEN" - he was no real prophet. Similar in 6/50a, 7/188b, 10/20c+d, 10/49a+b, and 72/26.
As mentioned: Also relevant here is that the original title of the Jewish prophets as mentioned was not "prophet" but "seer" - one who saw at least parts of the unseen. (F.x. 1. Sam. 9/9#, 1. Sam. 9/11, 1. Sam. 9/18, 1. Sam. 9/19, 2. Kings. 17/13, 1. Chr. 9/22, 1. Chr. 26/28, 1. Chr. 29/29, 2. Chr. 9/29, 2. Chr. 16/7, 2. Chr.16/10, 2. Chr. 19/2, 2. Chr. 29/25, Amos 7/12, Mic. 3/7 - some places the two titles even are used side by side). Muhammad thus so definitely was no seer - prophet - even according to his own words; he had no "knowledge of the unseen". One more proof for that he was not in the same line - not to say league - as Jesus, if the Bible and/or the Quran tell the truth about Jesus on this point.
Many liked - and like - the title prophet, and there have been made other definitions for this title - the most common of these are "one who brings messages from a god", or "one who represents a god", or "one who acts/talks on behalf of a god". But the fact remains: Without being able to prophesy, he or she is no real prophet. A messenger for someone or something - ok. An apostle - ok. But not a real prophet.
***This is a fact no Muslim will admit: Muhammad in reality simply was no real prophet or seer. Perhaps a messenger for someone or something or for himself – or perhaps an apostle – but not a real prophet. He only “borrowed” that impressive and imposing title. It is up to anyone to guess why.
It also is remarkable that Muhammad relatively seldom used the title "prophet" about himself in the Quran. He mostly used the title "Messenger", even though messenger in reality means an errand-boy (Muslims try to make this title something big and imposing, but this is the meaning of it). "Prophet" on the other hand is a heavy and impressive title telling a lot about the person. May the reason for why he did not use it so often, be that he knew he did not have what it took to merit that title, and was a little careful using it, so as not to provoke questions or comments? (And is this also the reason why Muslims try to pretend that "messenger" is something more impressive and heavy than "prophet"?)
Also see 30/40h and 30/47b above.
015 49/3a: "Those (ordinary Muslims*) that lower their voices before Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad liked respect - this shows some places in the Quran.
016 49/3b: "Those (ordinary Muslims*) that lower their voices before Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - - for them is Forgiveness and a great Reward". No comment necessary. Except see 49/1b-c above.
017 49/3c: "- - - Allah's Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No omniscient god ever sent a messenger telling so much wrong - it for no other reason, then because he had to know the mistakes, etc. would be discovered sooner or later. (Many have discovered them through the times and not entered Islam. Also see 63/5a below.
018 49/3d: "- - - Allah's Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
019 49/3e: "- - - their hearts has Allah tested for piety - - -". Why does an omniscient god who on top of all decides everything himself, according to the Quran, have to test his followers?
020 49/3f: "- - - Forgiveness - - -". Impossible for Allah to grant unless he exists and is a god - none of which Muhammad was able to prove.
021 49/3g: "- - - a great Reward". The Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f above. Also this Allah is unable to grant unless he exists and is a god - which as said turned out impossible for Muhammad to prove.
<>022 49/4: "- - - most of them (non-Muslims*) from lack of understanding". Wrong - the fact was that a number of the understood that something was really wrong with Muhammad's new religion.
023 49/5a: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah could and can forgiven nobody unless he exists and is a god.
024 49/5b: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a and 48/14g above.
025 49/6a: "O ye who believe!" Muslims.
##026 49/6b: "O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly - - -". This is worth thinking over also in another connection: Muslims know about al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), they know about Kitman (the lawful half-truth), they know about "war is deceit" and "war is betrayal" (to quote Muhammad himself in f. x. Ibn Ishaq "Life of the Prophet") and that everything outside Islam can be defined as "the area of war", they know Muhammad advised and himself practiced even breaking of one’s own oaths. All the same - when some good Muslim tells something positive about Islam - true or not true - or something negative about others - true or not true - they believe it without checking if it is true or not. F.x. the Muhammad cartoons - the Danish mullahs in the beginning did not get the angry reactions they wanted. Therefore they colored 3 of the drawings in ugly colors and told Muslims abroad that this was from the Danish newspaper, and then finally they got reactions. (What in a way is worse: This falsification is known in Muslim countries, but as far as we understand it has provoked no reaction - it seems to be ok to do things like that. We have heard the episode mentioned on al-Jazeera, but that is it). Or a more recent episode: Last year (2009) Muslim scholars announced on Internet that they could prove - without giving the proofs - that the texts in the Bible had been changed more than 50 places (56 if we remember correctly) during the meeting in Cannae in 325 AD. Now the agenda for that meeting is well known, and changes to Biblical texts were not even mentioned there. Besides it is just as easy to make bishops change texts in the Bible as it is to make ayatollahs change texts in the Quran - it is just the same mental mechanism at work in both cases. And one more point the mentioned Muslim scholars skipped: The Old Testament (OT) makes up more than 3/4 of the Bible. How do you falsify that part of the Bible without agreements from the Jews? - there was not one single Jew at that meeting. Well, how at all make the Jews agree to changes in the Bible favoring Jesus, when they do not believe in Jesus? But good Muslims reading the tale in the Internet, at once accepted the fairy tale without checking anything, even though in this case to check the agenda for that meeting is easy. (Actually al-Taqiyya, Kitman, etc. makes information from Muslim sources difficult to use, because everything has to be checked - all too often the claimed facts are made up or "twisted" or "cherry-picked" half truths - see f.x. the claims that Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible: There they first have cherry-picked some quotes and taken them out of the context, then they have twisted logic quite a lot, omitted some facts - - - and seemingly got a nice answer - an answer Muslims believe in without even checking in the Bible (where they would have found the claims are not true - the main word in the claim, "brother", f.x. is used at least 338 times (98 in OT, 240 in NT) in the Bible - and not one time about an Arab/Arabs. Arabs/Arabia are mentioned at least 15 times - not one of them as friends, not to mention brothers*).
027 49/7a: "- - -among you (Muslims*) is Allah's Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Historical anomalies.
028 49/7b: "- - - Allah's Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Another version of Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to Allah and power.
029 49/7c: "- - - Allah's Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No omniscient god ever sent a messenger telling so much wrong like Muhammad in the Quran - if for no other reason than because he had to know he would be looked through sooner or later - like many have done through the centuries - and he would lose credibility and proselytes - like he has done and does for this reason.
030 49/7d: "- - - were he (Muhammad*) - - - to follow your (Muslims'*) (wishes), ye would certainly fall into misfortune - - -". Do not disagree with Muhammad - he is right! A good "truth" to impress on the underlings by any dictator.
031 49/7e: "- - - certainly - - -". See 2/2b above.
032 49/7f: "- - - but Allah has endeared the Faith to you, and made it beautiful in your hearts - - -". Allah or someone else? The Quran's many mistakes, its partly immoral moral code, and its inhuman war religion may make one think about forces very different from benevolent gods.
033 49/7g: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam.
034 49/7h: “- - - He (Allah*) has made hateful to you (Muslims*) unbelief - - -”. To hate unbelief for most Muslims means to hate the unbelievers/non-Muslims.
035 49/7i: "- - - unbelief - - -". Anything which is not Islam.
036 49/7j: "- - - wickedness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes. They in some ways are similar to the Nazi and the apartheid ones.
037 49/7k: "- - - Rebellion - - -". Rebellion often is permitted for Muslims in non-Muslim areas, but never for non-Muslims in Muslim areas, no matter how they are treated.
038 49/7l: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.
039 49/7m: "- - - those who walk in righteousness - - -". Muslims.
040 49/7n: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes. They in some ways are similar to the Nazi and the apartheid ones.
041 49/8a: "A Grace and a Favor from Allah - - -". Not possible unless Allah exists and is a god.
042 49/8a: “- - - Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom”. See 13/1g and 40/75.
043 49/8c: "- - - Knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
044 49/9a: "- - - Believers - - -". Muslims.
045 49/9b: "- - - then fight ye (Muslims*) (all) - - -". Guess if this is different from the message of Jesus (NT)!! The relationship between these religions is very distant and superficial.
046 49/9c: "- - - Allah loves those who are fair (and just)". Contradicted by reality: Both in Islamic code of moral (f. ex. "good and lawful" to rape female prisoners, to steal/rob if it is done in the name of Allah (!!!), extortion, all are ok.) and in sharia (f. ex. punish a raped woman for indecency if she cannot bring 4 male witnesses who have seen the raping) there are unfair and unjust rules presumably made by Allah. Nice claims and nice and big words cannot outweigh reality.
047 49/9d: "- - - fair - - - justice - - - 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.
048 49/9e: Grammatical error: ‘eq-tatalu should be ‘eqtatalata.
049 49/10a: "The Believers - - -". Muslims.
050 49/10b: "- - - fear Allah, that ye (Muslims*) may receive Mercy". See 1/1a above.
051 49/11a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.
052 49/11b: "- - - after he has believed - - -". The prohibitions for slander etc. in this verse may be valid only for slander against Muslims. But what likely is meant here, is that even if a person was not god before he became a Muslim, you shall not use that against him/her after he/she became a Muslim, if they have become better persons.
053 49/12a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.
054 49/12b: "Avoid suspicion - - -". There hardly is any other area in the entire world where there are so much suspicion and conspiracy theories like in the Islamic area. One possible reason is that they never throughout their history have been used to receiving true and reliable information. Another may be that they are used to al-Taqiyya (lawful lies) and Kitman (lawful half-truths), etc., and try to find the "real truth" behind everything - even behind completely true and complete facts.
055 49/12c: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See f.x. 48/14g above.
056 49/13a: “- - - We (Allah*) created you (man*) from a single (pair) of male and female - - -”. Adam and Eve never were, according to science. Besides if everything had started with just one pair, the DNA-variety had been too small to make the group viable in the long run = man had died out after some generations. (Actually science says that to have enough DNA variety + have a reasonable safety margin against dangerous illnesses, a group of animals (or humans) should consist of minimum some 2000 members – and spread around some to reduce the impact of contagious illnesses – to be sure to be viable in the long run.) Also see 6/2b, 6/98 – 7/189 – 39/6 Above.
057 49/13b: "Verily - - -". In a book with so many mistakes, etc. there are some words one cannot take at face value unless they are proved. "Verily" is one of them.
058 49/13c: "Verily the most honored of you (Muslims*) in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you". But other parts of the Quran makes it clear that the most righteous are the ones most willing to go to war for "Allah and his Messenger Muhammad".
059 49/13d: "- - - righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes. They in some ways are similar to the Nazi and the apartheid ones.
060 49/13e: “And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).” Not if he has a “Mother Book” (see f. ex. 13/39 - 43/4) like the Quran revered in his heaven, and not if he sent down a copy of a book with that much wrong contents as a basis for his religion. See 40/75 and 41/12. Also see 4/176 – 15/86 - 27/6 – 27/44 -31/34 – 32/6 – 35/28 - 48/26 – 49/1 – 49/16 – 49/18 – 57/3 -58/7 – 64/4 – 65/12 – 67/13.
**Besides: Have you ever noticed that the one who most needs to boast – loudly and frequently – about how truthful he is, is the cheater and the swindler, and the one boasting about his knowledge is the medium to rather ok, but not top intelligent and educated one? – The really honest and the really intelligent and wise persons never need to boast about those things. Real honesty and real intelligence makes itself felt after some time of close connection – if there is a need for boasting, something is wrong.
061 49/13f: “And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).” See 2/233h above.
062 49/13g: "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
063 49/14a: "The desert Arabs - - -". A historical anomaly.
064 49/14b: "The desert Arabs say, 'We believe.'". 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.
065 49/14c: "- - - faith - - -". Islam.
066 49/14d: "- - - if ye (desert Arabs) obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A nice small condition - especially as here on Earth that meant: "I ye obey me, Muhammad".(Also on this point there is a great difference between Jesus and Muhammad.)
067 49/14e: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad’s standard mantra to glue himself to his god and platform of power".
068 49/14f: "- - - His (Allah's) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.
069 49/14g: "- - - His (Allah's) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
070 49/14h: "- - - if ye (nominal Muslims*) obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A somewhat stronger version of Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his platform of power; his god.
071 49/14i: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and is a god.
072 49/14j: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a and 48/14g above.
073 49/15a: “Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". You are no Muslim unless you also believe in Muhammad - no matter how doubtful a person even central Islamic literature proves he is behind the glorious words. Nice at least for Muhammad - good glue to glue him to his platform of power; his god and his religion. (A good platform for many a self proclaimed prophet through the times.)
074 49/15b: “Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), and have never since doubted, but have striven with their belongings and their persons (= made war*) in the Cause of Allah - - -.” Use your wealth and your life in war for Muhammad/Allah – only then you are a real Muslim. A clear message.
075 49/15c: “Only those are Believers who have believed in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), and have never since doubted, but have striven with their belongings and their persons (= made war*) in the Cause of Allah: such are the sincere ones". Sugar to terrorists included the self murder ones.
076 49/15d: "- - - Believers - - -". Muslims.
077 49/15e: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to power and his platform of power, his god.
078 49/15f: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.
079 49/15g: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
080 49/16a: “But Allah knows all that is in heavens (plural and wrong) and on earth - - -”. Not if he reveres a “mother book” (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) like the Quran in his heaven. And not if he has been involved in the Quran and all its errors, etc. See 13/1g and 40/75 above.
081 49/16b: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.
082 49/16c: "He (Allah*) has full knowledge of all things".
If this had been true, why then does he have to test his followers - f. x. by sending them to war?
But either the claim - never proved as always in Islam - is not true, or Allah has not made the Quran. No omniscient god makes a book with that many mistaken facts, etc.
083 49/16d "- - - knowledge - - -". See 26/83a above.
084 49/17a: "Say (Muhammad) - - -". A historical anomaly.
085 49/17b: "- - - Allah has conferred a favor upon you (Muslims*)that He has guided you to the Faith - - -". Like in all other religions saying similar things, it only is true that it is a favor, if the teachings are true and from a god.
086 49/17c: "- - - Allah has conferred a favor upon you (Muslims*)that He has guided you to the Faith - - -". A harsh war religion may not be a favor to its followers no matter if it is true - and till now there never was a war religion which proved itself true - sometimes strong, but never a proof for that there was a god behind it.
087 49/17d: "- - - He (Allah*) has guided - - -". If he uses the Quran with all its mistakes, etc. as a guidebook, he is not much of a guide - too much is wrong. Besides: Does he exist? - if not he cannot guide anyone at all.
088 49/17e: "- - - the Faith - - -". Islam.
089 49/18a: "Verily - - -". See f.x. 2/2a and 49/13b above.
090 49/18b: “Verily Allah knows the secrets of the heavens (plural and wrong - some proofs or statements the Quran chooses) and the earth - - -”. Not if he reveres a “Mother Book” (43/4) he has copied the Quran from, in his heaven”. See 40/75, 41/12 and 49/16a above.
091 49/18c: “Verily Allah knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth - - -”. See 2/233h above.
092 49/18d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.
093 49/18e: "- - - Allah sees well all that ye (Muslims*) do". Once more the carrot and the stick: Allah sees and rewards all good deeds, so stay good and obedient. But Allah also sees and punishes all bad deeds, so do not try to cheat. Also see 2/233h above.
