1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 60 -- AL-MUMTAHANAH (The Examined One)

Revelation: Medina, 629 AD or more likely early 630 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 60/1a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.

003 60/1b: “Take not my (Allah’s or Muhammad’s - “my” is written with “m”, not “M”, so likely Muhammad's*) enemies (non-Muslims*) as friends (or protectors) - - -”. To mingle with non-Muslims may result in ideas or knowledge that is not good for Muslims to have - f.x. that there are lots of mistakes and contradictions in the Quran, or that not all non-Muslims are bad.

004 60/1c: "- - - my enemies and yours - - -". Non-Muslims are "our" enemies - no less.

005 60/1d: “- - - they (non-Muslims) have rejected the Truth (the Quran*) - - -”. For many what happened, was that they saw the Quran could not be the truth.

006 60/1e: "- - - the Truth (the Quran*) - - -". See 13/1g and 40/75 above.

007 60/1f: "- - - the Truth (the Quran*) that has come to you (Muslims*) - - -". This is not even a Kitman (a lawful half-truth), but an al-Taqiyya (a lawful lie - and in Islam it is not only permitted to lie when you promote or defend Islam, it is advised to do so "if necessary") - so much is wrong in the Quran, that it is not the truth.

008 60/1g: "- - - driven the Prophet (Muhammad*) and yourself (from your homes) - - -". This was (shortly) before they returned to Mecca in 630 AD, and some had their original homes there.

009 60/1h: “The (Prophet’s (Muhammad’s*)) - - -.” 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.

010 60/1i: "If ye (Muslims*) have come out to strive in My (Allah's*) Way and to seek My Good Pleasure, (take them (non-Muslims*) not as friends)". A clear message and order.

011 60/1j: "- - - My (Allah's*) Good Pleasure - - -". Impossible unless he exists and is something supernatural.

012 60/1k: "- - - I (Allah*) know full well all that ye (people*) conceal - - -" - so do not try to cheat on Allah - or in this life on Muhammad. But also see 2/233h above.

013 60/1l: “And any of you (Muslims*) that does this (making friends with non-Muslims*) has strayed from the Straight Path (Islam*)”. To make friends - at least good friends - with non-Muslims is a sin and a deviation from Islam. How do you think a verse like this works on the possibility of integration of Muslims in other societies? - or for non-Muslims trying to be integrated in a Muslim society? - or even for contact between Muslims and other people?

014 60/1m: "- - - the Straight Path". The road to the Quran's and Islam's Paradise. Also see 10/9f above. 

###Also in the Bible you find roads used for a symbol in a similar way - "the wide road" going to Hell and "the narrow road" going to Paradise. Is there an extra symbol in the fact that "the Straight Road" and "the wide road" both has the same meaning "The Easy Road" - the one who according to the NT leads to Hell? I who write just this was struck by this parallel and its symbolism even the first time I saw the expression in the Quran, and the dark sides of the Quran later has made that thought and feeling more intense.

015 60/2a: "If they (non-Muslims*) were to get the better of you, they would behave to you as enemies - - -". This is around 629-630 AD and Muhammad needs an enemy picture of the world outside Islam - then why not produce such an enemy picture? This is one of the many droplets in the Quran used to create it. The truth is that also non-Muslims are humans. Some would be enemies of a war religion as harsh as Islam, but many would be friends or "teachers" trying to make Muslims see what was and is wrong in the Quran and how this proved that the book was not from a god - - - and most would not care neither this way nor that way, unless they were forced to make up their minds about it.

The outside world, included Mecca, also gladly had left them alone, if it was not because of the never ending raids for stealing, killing and taking prisoners for slaves or extortion made by the Muslims.

016 60/2b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

#####017 60/2c: “- - - they (non-Muslims*) desire that ye (Muslims*) should reject the Truth.” As for truth: See 13/1g and 40/75 above. As for the rest, may be the Quran is right – but for entirely different reasons from what that book claims. Islam in its pure Quranic form is a very destructive, inhuman and immoral religion of hate, apartheid, suppression and war - compare the moral and ethical codes in the Quran and Islam with the gold standard and the basis for all true inter-human morality: "Do against others like you want others do against you" before you protest - and when on top of that it is shiningly clear that the Quran is not a divine work, we do not want our descendants to end up in something like that, not to mention as members of it.

018 60/3a: "He (Allah*) will judge between you (on the Day of Doom*)". This only can be true if Allah exists and in addition is a god (and not f.x. something dark pretending to be a god - several aspects of the Quran may indicate this).

019 60/3b: "He (Allah*) will judge between you (on the Day of Doom*)". This also is contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh will be the judge that day, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

020 60/3c: "- - - for Allah sees well all that ye do." Why does he the need the witnesses which are mentioned time and again in the Quran? - no logic. But sentences like this also are "carrots and sticks": Be good and obedient and end in Heaven, be bad and disobedient and end in Hell. And one more thing: If Allah sees everything, why then 2/233h above?

021 60/4a: “There is for you (Muslims*) an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: ‘We are clear of you and of whatever you worship besides Allah: we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred forever - unless you believe in Allah and him alone’ - - -”. This is not from the Bible (see 1. Mos. 11/27-32 and 12/15) - there is no indication for a religious quarrel in the Bible, neither between Abram/Abraham and the surrounding people, or between him and his father. From where did Muhammad get this information - or "information"?

022 60/4b: “There is for you (Muslims*) an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: ‘We are clear of you and of whatever you worship besides Allah: we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred forever - unless you believe in Allah and him alone’ - - -”. Remember that Islam tells often and clearly that what is told in one context in the Quran, nearly always has general and universal meaning and value. Words not possible to misunderstand: Non-Muslims are enemies.

An extra point: To have another religion is enough for the good Muslim (according to Islam) to feel "enmity and hatred forever". Rather a thought provoking piece of information.

023 60/4c: "Abraham and those with him - - -". Contradicting the Bible: For one thing his name still was Abram - it was not changed to Abraham until he was 99 years old (1. Mos. 17/5) - but there were not "Abram and those with him", because it was Abram who was with his father and not the other way around - then and for many more years (1. Mos. 11/31-32).

024 60/4d: "Abraham and those with him - - - (said*): 'We are clear of you - - -'". In the Bible there is no hint about any dispute. See 60/4a above.

025 60/4e: "- - - whatever ye (non-Muslims*) worship besides Allah - - -". Wrong. Muhammad often used this expression - it gives the impression that Allah is so central that everyone worship him, but that the non-Muslims had other gods in addition. The plain truth is that non-Muslims did not believe in Allah at all, but had other god(s). This also was the case for the old Arabs, where Muhammad twisted the facts to make it look like his claim was right. The old pagan Arabs did not believe in Muhammad's Allah, but in the old pagan god al-Lah. Also see 25/18a above

026 60/4f: "- - - whatever ye (non-Muslims*) worship besides Allah - - -". If you are able to believe there was any worshipping of Allah some 2500 years before Muhammad started his preaching, you are free to do so. But neither science, nor Islam has been able to find even the smallest trace of such worshipping older than 610 AD, when Muhammad started. We may add for what it is worth that it also is contradicted by the Bible, which tells Yahweh was Muhammad's god, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

027 60/4g: "- - - but not (= no good example*) when Abraham said to his father: "I will pray for forgiveness for thee - - -". It is normal for leaders of extreme sects to try to cut their followers' connections to people outside the sect, included the nearest family, because knowledge from the outside may tell truths the leaders do not want should reach their often manipulated congregations. Muhammad and Islam was - and is - in good company when doing this.

028 60/4h: "I (Abraham*) will pray for thee (his father*) - - -". There is no trace of such a dispute in the Bible. On the contrary - Abraham lived together with his father (Tera in the Bible) from ha was born when Tera was 70 years old (1. Mos. 11/26) till Abram/Abraham was told by Yahweh to continue to Canaan when Abram/Abraham was 75 (1. Mos. 12/1-5).

029 60/4i: "I (Abraham*) will pray for thee (his father*) - - -". If Abram/Abraham had been a Muslim, what had been the idea of praying? - everything is totally predestined by Allah in his unchangeable Plan, according to the Quran - a plan nobody and nothing can change. Why then prayers, when they can change nothing anyhow?

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are thought that a question or problem can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not, many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. In cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1) Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other.)

030 60/4j: "- - - forgiveness - - -". According to the Quran, Abraham's god was Allah. But Allah can forgive nobody and no-one unless he exists and is a god.

031 60/4k: "- - - though I (Abram/Abraham*) have no power (to get) aught on thy (other people's*) behalf from Allah". One more parallel to Muhammad himself. There are many such parallels in the Quran - more or less all real or claimed prophets the book tells about, are such parallels - there is no doubt(?) Muhammad must be a normal parallel!

032 60/4l: "- - - from Allah". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells Abram's/Abraham's god was Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

033 60/4m: "(They (unclear who, but likely Abram/Abraham and his followers*) prayed) - - -". See 60/4h above.

034 60/4n: "In Thee (Allah*) we (Abram/Abraham and other Muslims(!!)*) we trust - - -". Anyone trusting Allah is in for a surprise if he does not exist (not to mention if he belong to the dark forces) - especially if there is a next life, especially since Islam is a kind of religion few good or benevolent gods will accept.

035 60/4o: "- - - to Thee (Allah*) is (our) Final Goal". Not true unless Allah exists, and in addition is a god. Well, it may be true also if Allah exists, but is something dark like aspects of the Quran may indicate - but in that case the end station is not Paradise.

036 60/4-6: There are marked differences between what the Quran and what the Bible tell about Abram/Abraham. As the Bible is and was the only written real source for information about him, and as the Quran is from no god who could have had information, one may wonder from where the claims and tales in the Quran about Abraham has originated.

037 60/5a: "- - - a (test and) trial - - -". Why does an omniscient and omnipotent god who on top of all predestines everything, have to test anybody at all?

038 60/5b: "- - - Unbelievers - - -" One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims - at least negative in the ears of Muslims.

039 60/5c: "- - - forgive us (claimed good Muslims*) - - -". But Allah can forgive exactly nobody unless he exists and is a god.

040 60/5d: "Thou (Allah*) art the Exalted in Might". As mentioned before: At least he has never proved this might.

041 60/5e: “(Allah*) - - - the Wise.” Not if he is behind the Quran.

042 60/6a: “There was indeed for them (Abram/Abraham and his people in 60/4*) an excellent example for you (Muslims*) to follow - - -.” See 60/4a-f and 60/4-6 above. No further comments necessesary.

043 60/6b: "- - - those whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day". = Muslims.

044 60/6c: "- - - the Last Day". The Day of Doom.

045 60/6d: "- - - truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

046 60/6e: "- - - Allah is - - - Worthy of all Praise". Read the text above this surah or 1/1a and see if you agree.

047 60/7a: "- - - those whom ye (Muslims*) (now) hold as enemies". One of Muhammad’s many names for non-Muslims - in this case very clear speech.

048 60/7b: "For Allah has power (over all things) - - -". Often claimed, never proved - there only are the words of a man of doubtful moral, and with a liking for power, wealth - at least for bribes - and women.

049 60/7c: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah cannot forgive anybody unless he exists and is a god.

050 60/7d: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". Read 1/1a above and see if you agree.

051 60/8a: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam. Only Islam is faith in the Quran.

052 60/8b: "- - - justly - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral cod, partly unethical ethical code and partly unjust sharia laws.

053 60/9a: “Allah only forbids you - - - from turning to them (non-Muslims striving against you for your faith*) to turn to them (for friendship or protection):” Do not become friends with your opponents and the opponents of Islam.

054 60/9b: "- - - those who fight you (Muslims*) for (your) Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

055 60/9c: "- - - Faith - - -". Islam. Only Islam is faith in the Quran.

056 60/9d: "- - - wrong". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

057 60/9e: "- - - support (others) in driving them (some non-Muslims*) out - - -". Compare this to Jesus: "Turn the other cheek" (f.x. Matt. 5/39) or "Love your enemies" (f.x. Matt. 5/43-47). The brutality and the love for fighting in the Quran's teaching is one of the absolute proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - and for that there are no lines of any essential kinds between Jesus and Muhammad (in most of the central matters, Jesus and Muhammad are antipodes, and at least on themes like moral and ethics the same can be said about Yahweh and Allah.

058 60/10a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.

059 60/10b: "When there come to you believing women refugees, examine and (test) them - - -". It happened that women living in bad marriages fled to the Muslims and claimed they had become or wanted to become Muslims. This because as Muhammad did not accept a marriage between a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim man ("Let there be no compulsion in religion"), her unlucky marriage automatically was nullified the moment she was accepted as Muslim. Muhammad wanted to check on this - but if he judged very strictly is another question.

060 60/10c: "- - - Believers - - -". Muslims.

061 60/10d: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many names for non-Muslims - negative at least in the ears of Muslims.

062 60/10e: "They (Muslim women*) are not lawful (wives) for the Unbelievers - - -". A Muslim woman is prohibited from marrying a non-Muslim (but not the other way around). Also a marriage is automatically nullified if the man (not the woman) leaves Islam. "No compulsion in religion"?

063 60/10f: "He (Allah*) judges (with justice) - - -". See the Quran's partly immoral moral code and its partly unjust Sharia laws and weep - or laugh.

064 60/10g: “And Allah is Full of Knowledge and Wisdom.” Not if he made the Quran - a book full of mistakes..

065 60/11a: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many names for non-Muslims - negative at least in the ears of Muslims.

066 60/11b: "- - - fear Allah - - -". This only can have a purpose if he exists and is something supernatural.

067 60/12a: “O 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 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).

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.

(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.

068 60/12b "- - - falsehood - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

069 60/12c: "- - - that they will not disobey you (Muhammad*) in any just matter - - -". Very nice for Muhammad - he liked power.

070 60/12d: "- - - just matter - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, partly unethical ethical code, very immoral war code, partly unjust judicial code, etc.

071 60/12e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving - - -". Allah cannot forgive anybody unless he exists and in addition is a god.

072 60/12f: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". Read 1/1a above and see if you agree.

073 60/13a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". Muslims.

074 60/13b: “Turn not (for friendship) to people on whom is the Wrath of Allah ". A clear message.

075 60/13c: "- - - people on whom is the wrath of Allah". Non-Muslims or even worse pagans, not to mention people who has left or opposes Muhammad/Islam. Actually this is one more of the negative names Muhammad had for non-Muslims - a very negative one in this case, at least in the ears of his followers.

076 60/13d: "- - - the Wrath of Allah". Fiction if he does not exist and in addition is something supernatural.

077 60/13e: "Of the Hereafter they (non-Muslims*) are already in despair - - -". Wrong. No real believer in a religion - any religion - despairs about the next life, as he believes in the promises of his religion. This is a fact an intelligent man knowing so much about people like Muhammad did, knew. But it is good propaganda.

078 60/13f: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many names negative for non-Muslims - negative at least in the ears of Muslims.

079 60/13g: "- - - the unbelievers are in despair about those (buried) in the grave". A complicated way of saying they do not believe in resurrection from the graves. But this is an Arabism. The old did not think much about a next life, and could be skeptical to its existence, but in the rest of the world most people believed in a next life. Would a universal god use Arabisms in his claimed universal and holy book?
