1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 56 -- AL-WAQI'AH (The Inevitable)
20 June 2012
Revelation: Mecca, 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 56/1: "- - - the Event inevitable - - -". = The Day of Doom.
003 56/2: "Then (at the Day of Doom*) will no (soul (beware here is said soul - normally the Quran claims resurrection in body*)) entertain falsehood - - -". Not even an al-Taqiyya (lawful lie) or a Kitman (lawful half-truth)? (Two kinds of dishonesty which are among the permitted ones "if necessary" in Islam - the only of the big religions embracing dishonesty).
004 56/2-6: Different things which will happen at the Day of Doom.
005 56/3a: "- - - bring low - - -". Send to Hell.
006 56/3b: "- - - exalt - - -". Here: Send to Heaven./p>
007 56/7: “(At the Day of Doom*) ye shall be sorted out in three classes. - - -. One small class for the ones who will get extra treatment in Paradise, one for normal treatment there, and one for Hell.
008 56/7+10a: “(At the Day of Doom*) ye shall be sorted out in three classes. - - -. And those (the class*) Foremost (in Faith) will be the foremost (in the Hereafter)”. There are classes also in Paradise (and according to other verses and to Hadith, they are split in at least 4 or 6 sub-classes + the higher heavens for outstanding Muslims).(And 7 classes in Hell.) A reality if it is a reality. A good way of motivating followers and warriors – strive and fight harder and advance in the next life – or for the ruler(s) and spoils of war only, if the religion is made up, which at least the Quran is (by man or dark forces - no god was involved in a book of that quality).
009 56/7+10b: “(At the Day of Doom) ye shall be sorted out in three classes - - - And those Foremost (in Faith) will be the Foremost (in the Hereafter).” The best Muslims – and that of course include the fiercest fighters – will go to the best places in Heaven, and also nearest to Allah. Of the rest the ones sorted to the right will go to the lower quality parts of Heaven, whereas the ones sorted to the left will go to Hell. (A small curiosity here: In the old Arabia right was reckoned to be the “good” side and left the “bad” side. Is it a coincidence that the omniscient god for the entire world sorted the dead ones according to customs and rules in after all tiny Arabia on Earth?)
010 56/8: "- - - what will be the Companions of the Right Hand?" According the other places those will be the good Muslims, going to Paradise - the right side was the good side in Arabia.
011 56/9: "- - - what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?" According the other places those will be the bad people, going to Hell - the left side was the bad side in Arabia.
012 56/10a: “And those Foremost (in Faith (this inclusion is added by A. Yusuf Ali and not part of the original text*)), will be the foremost (in the Hereafter (also added*))”. It is not clear who are reckoned to be foremost in faith - in this case it may be logical to believe it means the best Muslims, but see 56/1b just below. Anyhow the so-called foremost, seems to be the ones ending in higher heavens - there are 7 all together, according to Islam. Also see 56/11 below.
013 56/10b: (A56/3 – omitted in 2008 edition): “And those Foremost (in Faith (this inclusion is added by A. Yusuf Ali and not part of the original text*)), will be the foremost (in the Hereafter (also added*))”. But the Arab word “as-sabiqun” – here translated by “the foremost” - has more meanings, which has lead to different interpretations of this sentence, and those interpretations (translated from Swedish): “all are god and can be accepted” (Ibn Kathir). It has to be admitted that also here the clear and concise language in the Quran is not concise - and pretty unclear. And these variants also - as we have said many times - are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning. Allah (?) really uses a clear language.
014 56/11: "These (the best Muslims*) will be those nearest to Allah". Hadiths describes this as the better of the top Muslims, the higher heaven you will end in Paradise - Muhammad of course in the highest, no. 7, together with Abraham. Jesus, however, is not much above an average Muslim, it seems, because he only ends in the 2. heaven - the real reason may be that he was the only real competitor for Muhammad, and should be reduced as much as possible.
015 56/12: "- - - Gardens of Bliss". The Quran's Paradise - see 10/9f above.
016 56/13-14: "A number of people from those of the old, and a few from those of the later times". One more unclear point in the Quran; what does this refer to? Some Muslims say it refers to the claimed many Muslim prophets in what was the old times for Allah, compared to only Muhammad and his men in "later times (f.x. YA5228). Others say that it refers to the claimed "fact" that belief - Islam - was strong in the really old time, but that man's belief and moral standard is reduced progressively through history (f.x. A56/4) - this in spite of the real fact that none has found any traces of something like Islam older than 610 AD, when Muhammad started his teaching. The nearest were the Jews and the Christians, but especially NT is fundamentally so different from the Quran - and not falsified in spite of Muhammad's never documented claims - that there is no way Yahweh and Allah can be the same god, unless he is strongly schizophrenic.
017 56/15-16: “(They (the pious Muslims*) will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones), reclining on them, facing each other”. This means long double rows of thrones – millions or perhaps a few billions of thrones in double rows facing each other. More, if also the women and children and all the houris shall recline on thrones. Also there has to be some space between the rows, as there have to be places for resting on carpets as mentioned in other verses, and for the fruit trees and the water.
But endless double rows of thrones does not sound like our idea of a perfect paradise, no matter how many houris for free use and good food and drinks, as the nearly only pastime is some polite and not intellectually demanding conversation - the only alternative mentioned. See also quote 56/25-26 below.
018 56/15-23: A description of Allah's Paradise. Does anyone see any difference between this and a poor, naive, uneducated warrior's dream of a royal life included a suitable harem, and this? Very - VERY - different from Yahweh's Paradise in the Bible, where you "become like the angels" (f. x. Luke 20/36). Another point: In Yahweh's Paradise there is no houris and even no married couples any more - no sex. And being like an angel, you need no food - a sharp contrast to Muhammad's description of delicious things to eat and drink. Yahweh the same god as Allah? You are free to believe it if you are logically blind.
019 56/17: “Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual freshness - - -.” Again these mysterious servants. The Quran is totally disinterested in them and tells nothing about them – the only person of interest is the Muslim adult man – strangely the same one who can be warriors for Muhammad and his successors. Others do not count much. But there is a hidden fact here: Homosexuality is strongly frown at in Islam, but all the same silently accepted in some areas. The description of these youths, makes one wonder.
And: What are they - the servants and the houris? Where do they come from? How is Paradise for them? (Some Muslim scholars speculate about the possibility that they may be humans who died as babies or children - but their parents are promised to have their children as part of Paradise, and then they cannot be servants or sex doll for others.)
##020 56/18-20: “(Servants) with goblets, (shining) beakers, and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains (of wine*): No after-ache will they receive therefrom, nor will they be suffering intoxication: (and good food – meat and fruits*) - - -.” This surah is from ca. 615 AD – before Allah found out that alcohol was not good. But at least in Paradise even in 615 AD you did not grow ill or get a head-ache from plenty of wine. One may here remember that in the pre-Muslim Arabia, sex and alcohol were the two delightful things - Muhammad's god seems to satisfy both, perhaps even homosexuality on top . Is the word "populism" hidden somewhere in the Quran? (If you go looking, you find it many places).
021 56/20-21: "And with fruits, any that they (Muslims in Paradise*) may select: And with the flesh of fowls, any that they may desire". There is excellent food in the Quran's Paradise - - - but in the Bible's Paradise you are like angels (f. x. Mark 12/25) and do not need food - there is not one word about need of food or drink in Paradise in the entire Bible. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Just guess. Actually the fundamental differences in the two paradises are one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
022 56/22: “And (there will be) Companions with beautiful, big, and lustrous eyes - - -.” The Houris again - like 37/48a-c above – see that or 55/56c. There are no houris in the Bible's Paradise. Yahweh and Allah the same god? - no, not even if there is heavy schizophrenic, as schizophrenia cannot explain so highly different Paradises. One of the absolute proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
023 56/23: "Like unto Pearls well-guarded". The houris are beautiful like valuable pearls.
###024 56/24: “(The houris are*) A reward for the Deeds of their past (life).” How do women like to simply be a reward to some previously unknown – and often uncultivated – man? – and to be his sex slave or sex doll for eternity? A Paradise? This kind of sex-trade in the name of the god, gives us a sick and distasteful feeling. Paradise like a luxury brothel? What is for sure is that this claimed paradise is not even a distant relative of the one in the NT. The same god? Do not be ridiculous - a 200% proof.
025 56/25-26: “Not frivolity will they hear therein, nor any taint of ill – Only the saying, ‘Peace, Peace!” It is to be hoped that even if one is resurrected with exactly the old body from this life, the brain will be much changed – but eternity with only these pastimes will be boring to the extreme for intelligent and intellectually active persons, and also for others used to have something to do.
026 56/27: "The Companions of the Right Hand - - -". Muslims - bound for the Quran's Paradise - see 10/9f above. In the old Arabia right was the lucky or good side and left the unlucky or bad side. By coincidence(?) it seems that this superstition also is shared by Allah.
027 56/27-34: “The companions of the right hand (the good, but not top pious and/or warriors*) - - - (will be) among the Lote-trees without thorns - - - trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another - - - in shade - - - by water flowing constantly, and fruits in abundance - - - and on Thrones (of Dignity) - - -(and houris in the next verses – their wives are not mentioned*) - - -“. Not quite like the top class, but at least “on par” with kings and likely the top of dreams possible for uneducated, primitive more or less brutes. But each and every thing in reality just fit to satisfy basic and base earthly dreams of men and potential warriors of the primitive kind and from primitive circumstances. Not a thing beyond that. Compare this to f.x. Matt. 22/30: "At the resurrection (= in Paradise*) people will neither marry not be given in marriage (not to mention sex outside marriage*); they will be like the angels in heaven". Yahweh and Allah the same god with so different Paradises? - an imbecile question. And a 200% proof for the opposite.
028 56/29: "- - - Talh trees - - -". (YA5238) What is this? In a book of clear and easy language according to Allah(?) nobody knows. Some Muslim scholars guess it may be banana trees - but as Allah only takes information from Arabia, this cannot be, as the banana tree did not grow in Arabia (and besides a banana tree in Arab is not "talh" but "mawz"). Some scholars instead think it may be a special acacia tree rich with flowers. Nobody knows - it all is guesswork. Yes, clear and easy to understand language in the Quran - not possible to misunderstand.
029 56/30-31: "- - - In shade long-extended, by water flowing constantly - - -". An Arabism. The Quran's Paradise mirrors the dreams of dwellers in hot deserts. Hardly any place in the Quran you find the dreams of people from chilly and perhaps wet countries. Did not Allah know such places existed when he(?) made his holy book for all Earth?
030 56/32: "- - - fruit in abundance - - -". Earthly luxury. And a small detail mentioned by the Hadiths: No matter how much you eat and drink, you never have to go to the toilet in Paradise.
031 56/34a: "- - - (Muslims in Paradise will sit*) on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high". The maker of the Quran is unable to go beyond the bodily and the social pleasures - the top dreams of members of backwater primitives. F.x the intellect will go very hungry in Muhammad's Paradise - boring beyond anything credible in the long run.
032 56/34b: "- - - (Muslims in Paradise will sit*) on Thrones (of Dignity), raised high". But the Arab text (A56/13) in reality says "- - - on couches raised high". But to sit on couches does not sound as dignified.
033 56/35: “We (Allah*) have created (their Companions (houris*)) of special creation". Which may be the reason why nobody knows from where they come. It is a mystery in Islam.
034 56/35-37a: “We (Allah*) have created (their Companions (houris*)) of special creation. And made them virgin-pure (and undefiled) – beloved (by nature), equal in age (for good Muslim men in Paradise*) - - -.” Houris are a bit special kind of women, but the “fact” that they are given to the men arriving in Paradise as repayment for good (?) deeds, tells miles and square miles about Islam’s view of women. The servile nature of the houris – the ideal women – in the descriptions, also tells volumes about Islam’s point of view on how women shall behave.
035 56/35-37b: “We (Allah*) have created (their (Muslims*) Companions) of special creation. And made them (houris*) virgin-pure (and undefiled) – Beloved (by nature), equal in age - - -”. The wives and slave girls from this world are not even mentioned. But the strange sentence “equal in age” reappears – why, if all are resurrected like young men/people?
036 56/35-37c: “We (Allah*) have created (their (Muslims*) Companions) of special creation. And made them (houris*) virgin-pure (and undefiled) – Beloved (by nature), equal in age - - -”. Try to find anything - anything - even remotely like this, or other hints of sex, not to mention abundance of sex, in the Bible's Paradise. Just go on and see what you find. Yahweh and Allah the same god with so bottomless different Paradises? No answer is necessary - the reality is too obvious. And to try to explain away the differences by claims about falsification of the Bible, is centuries too late - both science and Islam has thoroughly proved that there are not falsifications in the Bible (by being unable to find one single proved case in tens of thousands of relevant manuscripts, and by being unable even to give a credible explanation of how it should be physically possible to make identical falsifications in so many old papers spread over such wide areas - and without even leaving traces possible for modern science to detect). Another absolute proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
037 56/36: "And made them (the houris*) virgin-pure (and undefiled) - - -". This is information which is totally irrelevant if you do not intend to hint about sex - and you can bet a continent on that sex was on the mind of the Muslim warriors when being told things like this.
038 56/37: (A56/15): “- - - equal in age - - -“. Your wives (and concubines and slave women?) will be resurrected as forever young virgins (it is nowhere said for how long) women equal of age to you, who also are resurrected as a young adult. But the Arab word that here is translated to “forever young”, “atrab” – plural “tirb” – also may mean “well-matched”. Also good – perhaps even better – but not the same meaning. And these variants also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning. Allah (?) really uses a clear language.
039 56/38: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". See 56/27 above.
040 56/41: "The companions of the Left Hand - - -". See 56/27 above.
041 56/41-57: A description of life in Hell.
042 56/45: (Hell is punishment -) "For that they (the ones ending there*) were wont o be indulged, before that (before they ended in Hell*) in wealth (and luxury) - - -". This was in 615 AD and the Muslims mainly were from the poor classes, whereas the rich and mighty opposed Muhammad. Under such conditions pep-talk like this, may be good psychology. You find much like this in the Quran.
043 56/46: "- - - Wickedness supreme - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code (just in this case the powerful ones opposed Muhammad and his new religion).
044 56/47a: "- - - they (the Quraysh - the leading tribe in Mecca*) - - -". A time anomaly.
045 56/47b: "- - - they (the Quraysh - the leading tribe in Mecca*) used to say, 'What! When we - - -". See 54/2c above.
046 56/47c: "What! When we (humans*) die and become dust and bones, shall we indeed be raised up again?" The resurrection hardly was what the old Arabs reacted to - even if the next life perhaps had no central position there, they knew it well from other religions. But Muhammad claimed that not only the soul, but also the body should be resurrected - which was and is a bit difficult to believe, especially as a next life not encumbered with a physical body sounds much more interesting. But knowing what kind of paradise Allah/Muhammad had to offer, a body was necessary: You cannot have much pleasure from a paradise where almost everything is bent on bodily pleasure, unless you have a body.
047 56/49: "Say (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly.
048 56/50a: "All will certainly be gathered together for the meeting appointed for a Day well-known". With all the mistakes in the Quran, and with the certainty that no omniscient god has ever made a book with so many mistakes, etc., it is absolutely certain that this claimed appointment is no certainty.
049 56/50b: "- - - certainly - - -". See 2/2b above.
050 56/50c: "- - - a Day well-known". The Day of Doom.
051 56/51a: "- - - truly - - -". See 2/2b above.
052 56/51b: "- - - ye that go wrong - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.
053 56/51c: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.
054 56/51d: “- - - and treat (truth (the Quran*)) as Falsehood! - -”. The Quran at best is partly true (and as it is from no god with all its errors, hardly true at all). Similar claim in 56/92. Also see 13/1g, 40/75 and others.
055 56/51e: "- - - (truth) - - -". See 2/2b, 13/1g and 40/75 above.
056 56/51f: "- - - Falsehood - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, and when used in religious context it means anything not in accordance with the Quran. Also see 2/2b, 13/16 and 40/75 above.
057 56/52: "- - - the Tree of zaqqum". A tree growing in Hell. It bears horrible fruits the inmates of Hell has to eat - because also in Hell you need food.
058 56/52-54: “Ye will surely taste of the Tree of zaqqum. Then will ye fill your insides therewith, and drink Boiling Water on top of it.” Pure sadism and torture.
059 56/55a: "Indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.
060 56/55b: "Indeed ye shall drink like diseased camels raging with thirst". Another of the many "Arabisms" in the Quran - how could an Inuit, a Samoyed, or for that case an Indian in Peru or a Swede know a camel's capacity of drinking? A holy book for all the world - made by an omniscient god?
061 56/56: "- - - the Day of Requital - - -". The Day of Doom.
062 56/57a: "It is We (Allah*) Who have created you (humans*) - - -". See 6/2b, 11/7a,21/56c and 41/15f above.
063 56/57b: “- - - the Truth (the contents of the Quran*) - - -“. But the contents of the Quran at best only are partly true – too much is wrong. See 40/75 above.
064 56/57a: “- - - the Truth - - -". Just here this word may mean that you shall witness the truth in the claim that it is Allah who has created you. You cannot witness about something you do not really know - not believe, but know.
065 56/59: "Is it ye (people) who created it (your semen), or are We (Allah*) the Creator?" It is your body who has created it. See 11/7a above and 56/64a+b below.
066 56/60a: "We (Allah*) have decreed Death to be your common lot - - -". This only is possible if Allah exists and is a major god. And it is one more of Muhammad's never proved claims.
067 56/60b: "We (Allah*) have decreed Death to be your common lot - - -". See 11/7a above.
068 56/61: "- - - creating you (again) - - -". See 21/56c+e and 41/15f above.
069 56/62a: "- - - the first form of creation - - -". The physical world of this life.
070 56/62b: "- - - the first form of creation: why then do ye not celebrate His (Allah's*) praises?" What here indirectly is said, is that Allah created everything, included you. See 6/2b, 11/7a, 21/56c+e and 41/15f above. The reason why we do not celebrate Allah's praises for that, is that it is unlikely in the far extreme that Allah did the creation - yes, even that he exists.
071 56/64a: "Is it ye (humans*) who cause it (seeds*) to grow, or are We (Allah*) the cause?". If Allah is the cause, he at least never has proved it - one of the many, many natural phenomena Muhammad claims for glorification and indication of his god, but always without proving that it really is Allah who does it. Totally invalid as glorification. Totally invalid as indication or proof. See 11/7a above.
##072 56/64b: "Is it ye (humans*) who cause it (seeds*) to grow, or are We (Allah*) the cause?". This is a technique of debating where you (try to) lead your opposite part by the nose, by using rhetoric questions and limiting the permitted answers. Here the answer which is the most likely to be the correct one - nature - is prohibited. You meet this kind of technique pretty often from Muslims - f.x. demanding proofs from the Quran for things they know is not clear in the Quran. (F.x. "Prove from the Quran that Dhu'l Quarnayn is Alexander the Great". This is thoroughly proved by science and also in central Islamic literature - f.x. by Ibn Hisham in Ibn Ishaq: "The life of the Prophet": "Alexander was a Greek (he was from Macedonia, but was king of Greece*) and he founded Alexandria - it is a historical fact that Alexander the Great founded Alexandria. But it is not clear in the Quran - on the other hand no Muslim ever mentions that it also is not clear in the Quran that Dhu'l Quarnayn was not Alexander.) Such a limitation is nonsense if proofs exists other places, but it makes the Muslim the winner of the debate if his opponent is stupid enough to accept the limitations.
Besides: It is up to Muslims to prove that Allah causes it to grow, as it is they who put forth the claim - not for you to disprove it.
073 56/65: "Were it Our (Allah's*) Will - - -". Claims like this you find many of in the Quran - but it never happen to be his will. Like children or others boasting. Or bluffing.
074 56/66: "((The skeptics of Muhammad*) saying), 'We are indeed left - - -". See 54/2c above.
075 56/67: "Indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.
076 56/69: "Do ye (bad people*) bring it down (in rain) from the Cloud or do We (Allah)". As dishonest a question as in 56/59 and 56/64a+b above.
077 56/70a: “- - - We (Allah*) could make it (all rain*) salt - - -”. Not without changing both natural and physical laws. Salt simply does not evaporate, and then as simply cannot rain down. If Islam insists it is true, they will have to prove it - words are cheap. (There is one extra comment here though: Droplets blown up from the sea may dry before they reach the sea again, and micro particles of salt may drift in the wind. But this effect is too small to give salty rain.)
078 56/70b: "- - - why do ye (humans/non-Muslims*) not give thanks?" Similar comment like in 56/62b above.
079 56/72: Similar debate like 56/59 and 56/69, not to mention 56/64a+b above.
080 56/73: "We (Allah*) have made it - - -". Often claimed, never proved.
081 56/74a: "- - - then celebrate with praises the name of thy (humans'/Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". Similar comment to 56/62b above. Also see 1/1a above.
082 56/74b: "- - - (Allah*), the Supreme!" This only can be - not is, but can be - true if Allah exists and is the top god (he cannot be the only god in case, as the Quran accepts that the old Jewish and Christian god Yahweh exists, even though it wrongly mixes him with Allah).
083 56/75a: “Furthermore I call to witness - - -". Why does an omniscient and omnipotent god need witnesses? - does he feel he is not trusted?
084 56/75b: (A56/26): “Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the stars”. The Arab word “mawqi” – plural “mawaqi” – literally means “the place (or time) where (when) something falls down”. And the Arab word “nudjum” – here called “stars” – also may mean something like “chapters”. “Ergo” and “voila”: A more pious translation: “I call to witness the coming-down in parts (of this Quran)”. Do not omit the possibility that wishful or “correct” thinking may influence interpretation. Here at least are two meanings – though the first one is the most accepted one. But also see 56/75b just below.
085 56/75c: (YA5258): “- - - the setting of the stars - - -.” Here are a number of possible mystic meanings in addition to the literal varieties (see 56/75a just above). Here are 3 of the possibilities: 1) A symbol for humility. 2) Figurative speech for the Day of Doom. 3) The bright things we like may disappear. “Clear speech”, yes.
086 56/76: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.
087 56/77a: "This is a Quran Most Honorable - - -". Mistaken facts "en gross", other mistakes, partly immoral moral code, partly Unethical ethical, code unjust laws, even lies and broken oaths, war mongering, hate mongering, apartheid mongering - Most Honorable?
088 56/77b: "This is a Quran Most Honorable - - -". To be a little flippant: If Muhammad's Quran is the most honorable, we have to hope we - and the world - never meet a dishonorable one.</>
089 56/78: "- - - a Book (the Quran*) well guarded". To what does this refer? To the claimed, but wrong, statement that the Quran is unchanged since Muhammad dictated the verses? - to the physical defence of the religion and thus the Quran? - to the claimed "mother book" in Heaven? (Is Islam right when it claims the language in the Quran is clear and not to be misunderstood?)
090 56/79: "(A book - the Quran*) Which none shall touch but those who are clean - - -". No comments except see 56/77a+b and 56/78 above.
091 56/80a: "A Revelation (the Quran) - - -". But is the Quran a revelation? - and in case from whom, as a book of that quality is not from any omniscient god? (The alternatives are: From dark forces/a devil, from a sick brain (f.x. TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - like modern medical science suspects), or from one or more cold brain(s) - or a combination of these).
092 56/80b: “A Revelation (the Quran*) from the Lord of the Worlds (Allah*) - - -”. Can it really be so? See 41/12 - and 40/75. Impossible – no omniscient god would make/deliver a book with so many mistakes, contradictions, etc. – not to mention keep it in his own Heaven as a revered Mother Book (13/39 - 43/4). Can this be a revelation from a god? Or the other way around: Can something producing so many mistakes, contradictions, so much invalid logic be lord and god of even one world? Also see 2/131 – 6/155 – 7/196 – 8/41 – 11/14 – 13/1 - 13/19 – 13/37 – 14/1 – 15/1 – 16/102 – 20/4 – 26/109 – 26/127 – 26/192 – 31/21 – 32/2 – 34/6 – 36/5 – 43/43 – 45/2 – 46/2 - 47/9.
093 56/80c: “- - - the Worlds.” The Quran says there are 7 (flat) Earths – and the Hadiths place them one above the other and has named them. Wrong. See 65/12.
094 56/81a: "Is it such a Message that ye (skeptics*) hold in light esteem?" Yes, that is the only intelligent thing to do with tales so full of mistakes and other errors and even some lies, at least until at least a minimum is proved.
095 56/81b: "- - - a Message (the Quran) - - -". But is the Quran a message? - and in case from whom, as a book of that quality is not from any omniscient god? (The alternatives are: From dark forces/a devil, from a sick brain (f.x. TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - like modern medical science suspects), or from one or more cold brain(s) - or a combination of these).
##096 56/82: "And have ye (skeptics*) made it your livelihood that ye should declare it false?" Absolutely not necessary, as the Quran itself by means of all its errors, etc. proves 100% and more that something is seriously wrong with the book - and thus also with Muhammad and with Islam. The only strange and curious thing is that so many are able not to see the mistakes, etc. in the book, and the inevitable meaning and consequence of them. Human brainwashing and conditioning and "the belief of your fathers", are strange psychological facts.
097 56/83: "Then why do ye (humans*) not (intervene) when (the soul of the dying man) reaches the throat - - -". One thing here is that the word "intervene" is not in the original Arab text - the translator has added it to give "the clear and not to be misunderstood language in the Quran" meaning. Another thing is: Does a dying soul pass through the throat? - in case how do you see that so that you know when to intervene? - and how do you intervene to stop it?
098 56/85: "But We (Allah*) are nearer to him (a man*) than ye (humans*) - - -". Often claimed in the Quran, never proved anywhere. As said before: Words are cheap, proofs are reliable.
099 56/87: "- - - call back the soul (of a dead person) - - -". Muhammad never proved a comma of the central points of his religion, but he demanded profs from anyone else - which shows 2 things: He was unable to prove anything - if not he had used proofs - but all the same he found proofs essential - if not he had not demanded it from others. In this case he even demands a proof he knows it normally is impossible to produce (the main thing obviously was not to find the truth, but to win the debate) - though you find some possible cases in the Bible.
0100 56/88: "- - - be of those nearest to Allah - - -". Be a Muslim.
101 56/89: "(There is for him (Muslim*)) Rest and Satisfaction, and a Garden of Delights". The Quran's and Islam's Paradise - see 10/9f above. If Allah exists and has a (which he does not if he f.x. belongs to the dark forces.
102 56/90: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". = Muslims. See 56/27 above.
103 56/91a: "(For him is a salutation), 'Peace be unto thee', from the Companions of the Right Hand". = If the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth - and if Allah exists and is a god.
104 56/91b: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". = Muslims. See 56/27 above.
105 56/92a: “- - - those who treat (Truth (the Quran*)) as Falsehood - - -”. There really is a question: What is true and what is false in the Quran - see 13/1g, 40/75 and 41/12 and others.
106 56/92b: “- - - those who treat (Truth (the Quran*)) as Falsehood - - -”. One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.
107 56/92c: "- - - (Truth) - - -". See 2/2b, 13/1g and 40/75 above.
108 56/92d: "- - - Falsehood - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. But also see 2/2b, 13/1g, and 40/75 above. Finally beware that when the Quran uses words like this in religious connection, it means anything not in accordance with the Quran.
109 56/92-93: “For him (the sinner*) is Entertainment with Boiling Water and burning in Hell-Fire.” Now boiling water is much colder than normal fire, but all the same far too hot for the human body. And remember you are bodily resurrected according to the Quran - if you are able to believe so.
110 56/95a: "Verily - - -". See f. x. 49/13b above.
111 56/95b: “Verily, this (the description of hell in the Quran*) is the Very Truth and Certainty”. Why should what the Quran says about Hell be more true and certain than the rest of the book with its many mistakes and errors? – Islam in case will have to bring some proofs instead of cheap words. See 42/7 above and other places.
112 56/95c: "- - - the Very truth - - -". See 2/2b and 49/13b above.
113 56/95d: "- - - the very truth and certainty - - -". Our experience is that the cheater, etc. are the ones without true facts, but who strongest insists on that certainly he is telling the very truth (others often have real facts or proofs to show for themselves).
114 56/95e: "- - - Certainty". See 2/2b and 49/13b above.
115 56/96a: "- - - celebrate with praises the name of thy (Muslims'/people's*) Lord (Allah*) - - -" For one thing there is no proved reason for doing so, for another see 1/1a above and see if he deserves so in any case - - - if he exists.
116 56/96b: "- - - (Allah*), the Supreme". This only can be - not is, but can be - true if Allah exists and is the top god (he cannot be the only god, as the Quran accepts that the old Jewish and Christian god Yahweh exists, even though it wrongly mixes him with Allah).
117 56/96c: "- - - (Allah*), the Supreme". This actually is contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the supreme - and though it mentions a number of pagan gods "en passent", it never mentions al-Lah/Allah (and in spite of the Quran's, Islam's and Muslims vehement claims also never Muhammad). 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.
