1000+ Comments on the Quran: Surah 9 -- At-Tawbah (The Repenter)

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 9/1a: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". The most used mantra of Muhammad to glue himself to Allah and his platform of power.

003 9/1b: "- - - His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

004 9/1c: "- - - His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

005 9/1d: "- - - those of the Pagans with whom ye (Muhammad's Muslims*) have conducted mutual alliance - - -". Muhammad and his Muslims had an agreement with one or more tribes. Now he claimed it was broken by them and wanted to terminate it.

006 9/1e: "- - - those of the Pagans with whom ye (Muhammad's Muslims*) have conducted mutual alliance - - -". 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.

007 9/2a: "Go ye (the ones the Muslims had alliances with, but which the Muslims claimed were broken*), for four months, backwards and forwards (as ye will), throughout the land - - -". = We will respect our alliance for another 4 months, (and then it is terminated). This was in 631 AD and Muhammad had become strong.

008 9/2b: "Go ye (the ones the Muslims had alliances with, but which the Muslims claimed were broken*), for four months, backwards and forwards (as ye will), throughout the land - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

009 9/2c: (YA1247): “- - - for four months - - -.” The 4 forbidden months? Or the 4 months following the declaration”? Nobody knows. Clear speech.

010 9/2d: “- - - for four months - - -.” The 4 forbidden months? A relevant question here: Why did so many of the Arab rules and customs from the old be in accordance with Allah's wishes? - here the 4 holy months. Even if Allah is claimed to be a worldwide god, no other nations followed his rules and wishes like the old Arabs. Or was it the other way around? - Muhammad or someone who told Allah how things ought to be?

011 9/2e: "- - - Allah will cover with shame those who reject Him". Not unless he exists. Not to mention if he does not exist, but f.x. Yahweh does.

012 9/3a: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/1a above.

013 9/3b: "- - - His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

014 9/3c: "- - - His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

015 9/3d: (A9/3): “- - - the day of the Great Pilgrimage - - -”. A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

016 9/3e: (A9/3): “- - - the day of the Great Pilgrimage - - -.” Islam does not know which day it here refers to. Most likely to the one in 631 AD or the one in 632 – but in case which one? A detail – but if the language in the Quran had been perfect like from a god, also the details had been taken care of, and especially details so significant that they get a name – and a proud name.

017 9/3f: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/1a+b+c above.

018 9/3g: "- - - ye (non-Muslims*) cannot frustrate Allah". Warning to the non-Muslims, pep-words to Muhammad’s followers - and completely true, at least if Allah does not exist.

**019 9/3h: 631 AD): “And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith”. Muslims may say it is meant figuratively and for the next life. But it is said in connection to 9/5, which indicates this life. This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are quoted under 9/5 (also see "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran"). (At least 91 contradictions).

020 9/3i: "And proclaim a grievous penalty to those who reject Faith". See 3/77b above.

021 9/3j: "- - - Faith". = Islam. The Quran says just "faith", not "right faith" - only Islam is faith according to the Quran".

022 9/4a: "(But the treaties are) not dissolved with those Pagan - - - who have not - - - failed you (Muhammad/Muslims*) in aught - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

023 9/4b: "(But the treaties are) not dissolved with those Pagan - - - who have not - - - failed you (Muhammad/Muslims*) in aught - - -". If man has free will, Allah could not know for sure billions of years ago that some would keep their treaty to the least detail. See 9/1e above.

024 9/4c: "- - - Allah loveth the righteous". Can he then love the Muslims living according to also the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code and the unjust parts of the sharia laws?

025 9/4d: "- - - righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

026 9/5a: "“But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and size them, beleaguer them, and lay in wait for them in every stratagem (of war).” Not even an incitement, but a clear order. (The old Arabia had 4 holy months a year - no. 1, 7, 11, 12 - when it was forbidden to wage war – though the Muslims at least made one raid during such a month. Islam took over this pagan custom like so many other pagan customs. These months are quite likely what “the forbidden months” refer to.

027 9/5aa: “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and size them, beleaguer them, and lay in wait for them in every stratagem (of war).” Guess if this collides with NT! Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Is there a stronger word than impossible anywhere? Incompatible with the Bible.

###028 9/5b: “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and size them, beleaguer them, and lay in wait for them in every stratagem (of war.)”

This is “the Verse of the Sword” – the single verse in the Quran that is reckoned to contradict and to abrogate most peaceful verses of all the harsh and inhuman and bloody verses from the Medina period. Muslim scholars say it abrogates 124 verses in the book, We have seen no numbers for how many it contradicts, but hardly fewer (also all abrogations in reality are contradictions – that is why they are deemed abrogations: to make one or more of the contradicting points invalid so that it is possible to live and behave according to the book - - - and to claim there are no contradictions in it as the contradicting point is abrogated, though this last fact Muslims never mention).

There are so many verses that 9/5 contradicts, that we have not found all. But note that all abrogations also were contradictions before one or more of the contradicting verses were abrogated (which is one of the reasons why it is nonsense when some Muslims say abrogations do not exist in the Quran – abrogations mean Allah is not omniscient, but had to try and fail and/or changed his mind every now and then. Without abrogations you have a lot more of serious contradictions in the book, and which is worst of contradictions which make the book impossible to follow in life, or abrogations that at least makes you wind your way through life? (but shows that Allah often was unable to find the best solution with the first try)). You will find more in the chapter about abrogations in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran".

Surah 9, including 9/5, came in 631 AD and according to the Islamic rules for abrogations, this means that it overrides nearly everything in the Quran (as normally the youngest abrogates the older).

Some of the contradictions (many of them also abrogations) follow a little further down.

029 9/5c: The Muslims and Muhammad had treaties with some pagan tribes who had kept their part of the treaties as promised. Muhammad therefore could not attack them before the time/months of agreement (or holy months?) were over, “for Allah loveth the righteous”.

“But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them, and seize them and beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in any stratagem of war”.

Do you see the sick irony? Your partners - kill them as soon as permitted because they are not Muslims. Can the same happen to others they have treaties with?

Pagans - also Arab pagans - got a very rough treatment often (though modern Muslims never mention this when talking about how well past Muslims treated non-Muslims); frequently they only got two choices: Die or become Muslims - in open violation of the Quran’s word about no compulsion in religion. (A word they often like to quote today even though they know it is dead - abrogated by 2 -3 dozen later verses.)

This verse may be one of the reasons for the Muslims’ behavior f.x. when conquering India (now Pakistan + India + Bangladesh) and in Africa. There were large-scale mass murders, enslavement, etc.

It also is a very nice word for terrorists today, as words from one situation in the Quran, normally can be used in similar situations - and as Muslim terrorists have no treaties with non-Muslims, and especially not in the West, it is just to start killing, because even if Europeans are not pagans, they are not Muslims. The same goes for Muslims' behavior in f.x. Darfur.

***030 9/5d: “- - - and lie in wait for them with any stratagem of war”.

As the Quran overrides any earthly law or agreement, this sentence may nullify the laws of war.

The laws of war have laboriously been agreed on little by little since the battle of Solferino and before, to make war a little less inhuman. Terrorists accept not one single of the rules, partly because of this verse. The more inhuman the better often. A good religion.

This sentence is a clear “go ahead” for terrorists for absolutely any atrocity - in Europe or anywhere.

Nice neighbors (but just remember that only a few Muslims are that kind of neighbors - though it may at times be difficult to know who is who, and this is a problem for any non-Muslim).

***031 9/5e: Pagans - and often others - often got a rough deal from Muslims. See the other parts of 9/5 above. The choice often was: Fight and be killed or become Muslims: “But if they (the pagans, etc.) repent, and establish regular prayers (= become Muslims) and practice regular charity, then open the way for them (= let them live*)”. Muslims say that according to the Quran there is no force or compulsion used by Islam to change religion (except pressure, economy, etc. and some pogroms). But this verse says the straight opposite - though we never hear it quoted by Muslims, for some reason or other. But this verse is from as late as 631 AD. According to Islam’s rules if two or more verses “collide”, the newest of them normally is the right one and the older ones are invalidated - abrogated. And this verse preaches: Kill them unless they become Muslims. What is a poor non-Muslim to believe? Especially as we know Muslims under some circumstances are permitted - or even advised to if necessary - to lie for non-Muslims.

This verse is said by Islamic scholars to abrogate - make invalid - 124 older and milder verses in the Quran. Here are some of them:

2/109 “- - - but (Muslims*) forgive and overlook (Jews and Christians*) - - -.” But that was long before 9/5 and other hard verses.

2/190: “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits - - -.” 9/5 does not care much about limits.

###2/256: “Let there be no compulsion in Religion - - -.” This is the flagship for all Muslims who wants to impress non-Muslims about how peaceful and tolerant Islam is. But NB! NB! The surah says: “Let there be - - -.” It is an incitement or – judging also from 2/255 – more likely a wish, it is not something which was a fact or a reality. It is a hope or a goal for the future, it is not something that existed (or exists - just ask a fundamentalist or a terrorist) – and all the same most Muslims quote it like this: “There is no compulsion in Religion” - - - a small, little “Kitman” (lawful half-truth – an expression special for Islam together with “al-Taqiyya, “the lawful lie”) in addition to the obvious al-Taqiyya as there in many a Muslim country are compulsions towards non-Muslims and towards Muslims wanting to change religion. This makes the Quran and the religion sound much more friendly and tolerant than the reality is some places.

Do not tell that to 9/5.

2/272: “It is not required of thee (O Messenger (Muhammad*)) to set them on the right path - - -.”

3/20: “If they (“infidels”*) do (become Muslims*), they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, thy duty is to convey the Message - - -.” This – that his duty was to convey the message (only), was deeply contradicted – and abrogated - by at least those of these verses that came after surah number 3 (in 625 AD), and we add the ones of them that came before, too, because Islam says an older verse in clear cases can abrogate a younger one (it is the one exception from the standard rule that the newest abrogates the older ones, though it is seldom used). Anyhow it is a clear-cut contradiction – and abrogated by many verses.

4/62: “Those men (not good Muslims or apostates*) - - - keep clear of them, but admonish them, and speak to them a word to reach their very soul.”

4/81: “- - - so keep clear of them (hypocrites, “infidels”) - - -.” 9/5 instead wants you to kill them.

4/90: “- - - if they withdraw from you but fight you not, and (instead) send you (guarantees of) peace, then Allah hath opened no way for you (to war against them.)” Guess if this changed later!!!

5/28: “If thou (“infidels”, Cain*) dost stretch thy hand against me (Muslims, Abel*), it is not for me to stretch my hand against thee to slay thee - - -.”

5/48: “- - - so strive as in a race in all virtues.” In a race you strive peacefully. 9/5 is terror and war and inhumanity.

5/99: “The Messenger’s duty is but to proclaim (the Message) - - -.” Oh??

6/60: “Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement - - -“.

6/66: “Not mine (Muhammad’s*) is the responsibility for arranging your (“infidels’”*) affairs.” No, his responsibility only is to kill you or suppress you or force you to become a Muslim.

6/70: “Leave alone those who take their religion to be mere play and amusement - - -.” No comment necessary.

6 /104: “I (Muhammad*) am not (here) to watch over your doings”.

6/107: “- - - but We (Allah*) made thee (Muhammad*) not to watch over their (“infidels’) doing - - -.”

6/112: “- - - so (Muhammad*) leave them (opponents*) and their Invention (gods*) alone.”

6/158: “Wait ye (“infidels”*): we (Muhammad*) too are waiting.” He later stopped waiting.

7/87: “- - - hold yourselves in patience until Allah doth decide between us: for He is the best to decide.”

7/188: “I (Muhammad*) am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings – to those who have faith.” A warner and a warrior.

7/193: “--- for you (Muhammad*) it is the same whether ye call them or ye hold your peace!”

7/199: “(Muhammad*) Hold to forgiveness (towards the “infidels”*).

8/61: “But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (Muhammad*) (also) incline towards peace - - -.”

9/68: “- - - therein (Hell*) shall they (hypocrites and “infidels”*) dwell: sufficient is it for them - - -.” Later it was not sufficient - Muhammad and his followers sent them there (or at least killed them).

10/41: “My work to me (Muhammad*), and yours to you! Ye are free from responsibility for what I do, and I for what you do.” Later he took the responsibility of forcing them to believe.

10/99: “Wilt thou (Muhammad*) then compel mankind, against their will, to believe!” Irony.

10/102: “Wait ye “non-Muslims*) then: For I (Muhammad), to, will wait with you.”

10/108: “- - - those (“infidels”*) who stray, do so for their own loss, and I (Muhammad*) am (not set) over you to arrange your affair.” Muhammad did not want them to arrange their own affairs, but later when he became stronger – then he wanted them to become Muslims and soldier, so that they could strengthen his own affairs of war and power.

11/12: “But thou (Muhammad*) art only there to warn”. And then some more – at least after 622 AD.

11/121: “Say to those who do not believe: ‘Do what ye can: we shall do our part’”. This was in 621 AD. Muhammad/Allah was/were still speaking peace – but not for much longer.

13/40: “- - - thy (Muhammad’s*) duty is to make (the Message) reach them (“infidels”): It is Our (Allah’s*) part to call them to account.” Well, from 622 AD this also became a part of the "duty" of Muhammad and his men.

15/3: “Leave them (the disbelievers*) alone, to enjoy (the good things of this life) and to please themselves - - -.” This was in 621 AD. It did not take long before Allah needed to change and contradict his word, when he started to change his rather peaceful religion to one of inhumanity and blood and war (luckily many Muslims do not live according to those parts if the Quran).

15/94: “- - - turn away from those who join false gods with Allah.”

16/35: “But what is the mission of the Messengers but to preach the Clear Message?” Surah 16 is one of the very last surahs from Mecca – months later the contents started to change, and contradictions – and abrogations – were necessary for the changes to a war religion. Then - was the message clear in 622 AD?

16/82: “- - - thy (Muhammad’s) duty is only to preach the clear Message.” This was just months before Muhammad fled from Mecca in 622 AD. But a little later he came to Medina and started to gain power:

16/125: “Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord (Allah*) with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious - - -.”

16/126: “And if ye do catch them out, catch them out no worse than they catch you out: but if ye show patience, that is indeed the best (course) for those who are patient.”

16/127: “And do thou (Muhammad*) be patient, for thou patience is but from Allah; nor grieve over them: and distress not thyself because of their plots.”

17/54: “We (Allah*) have not sent thee (Muhammad*) to be a disposer of their (“infidels’”*) affairs for them”. Allah or Muhammad started to change his mind about this one year later – in 622 AD – when Muhammad started to gain enough military power to decide “their” religion for them. (In spite of what Islam likes to tell, Islam to a large degree was introduced by the sword – and by the wish for taking part in the looting/robbing/stealing/raping and slave taking – in Arabia).

18/29: “- - - let him who will, believe, and let him who will, reject (it) - - -.” Guess if this peaceful line from the last year in Mecca was short-lived before it was abrogated by bloodier ones from Medina like 9/5!

18/56: “We (Allah*) only sent the messengers to give glad tidings - - -.” Well, the self proclaimed messenger started to change his mind shortly after he came to Medina. And so did his god.

19/39: “But warn them of the Day of Distress - - -.” Here in ca. 615 AD Muhammad should just warn them. The picture changed somewhat as he gained more power some years later.

20/130: “Therefore (Muhammad/Muslims*) be patient with what they (“infidels”) say - - -.” That was Muhammad’s tone in Mecca 615 AD or before – and until his flight to Medina in 622 AD. It changed quite a lot from 622 AD and onwards and contradicted quite a lot of the mild words from the Mecca period.

21/107: “We (Allah*) sent thee (Muhammad*) not, but for a Mercy for all creatures.” Muhammad was not much of a mercy to the world – read the surahs from Medina. Neither was he a Mercy for all Muslims – read the surahs from Medina + the verses about women, law, slavery, not to mention the to a large part inhuman ethical and moral code and also the war code.

21/112: “(Allah*) is the One Whose assistance should be sought against blasphemies.” Well, that was in 621 (?) AD. After 622 AD the sword was handier – blasphemy soon carried a death penalty - - - and there came a number of contradicting texts.

22/49: “I (Muhammad*) am (sent) to you (men*) only to give a Clear Warning - - -.” Well this was ca. 616 AD. But from some 6 years later on it was no longer only a warning, but the sword - - - and a lot of contradictions and abrogations in the texts and the teaching.

22/68: “If they (“infidels”) do wrangle with thee, say. ‘Allah knows best what it is ye are doing” – and leave them alone. This was ca. 616 AD. But from some 6 years later and more came lots of contradictions and abrogations.

23/54: “But leave them (“infidels”*) in their confused ignorance for a time”. This was in 621 or 622 AD, shortly before his – Muhammad’s – flight to Medina. When he started to become military strong enough, it was finish with leaving them alone – and there came a lot of contradictions and abrogations in the teachings and in the religion – from peace to inhumanity and war.

23/96: “Repel evil with what is best”. Later it became: Repel evil with evil – do against “infidel” like they do against you or more – at least when it comes to the bad things. Further comments identical to 23/54 above.

24/54: “- - - if ye (people*) turn away (from Muhammad*), he is only responsible for the duty placed on him, and ye for that place on you.”

26/216: “I (Muhammad*) am free (of responsibility) for what ye (“infidels”*) do!” This was in Mecca ca. 615 – 616 AD. The tone rapidly grew more unfriendly after 622 AD when he grew military strong – and the teachings needed some “adjustments” to fit a war religion = some more contradictions and abrogations:

27/92: “I (Muhammad’) am only a Warner”. That was in 615 – 616 AD. From 622 he fast became a robber baron, warlord and dictator – and more verses with contradictions and abrogations appeared. Many of the older verses were abrogated and contradicted when Muhammad grew military strong after 622 AD and the religion was changed to one of war and conquest.

28/50: But if they (“infidels”*) hearken not to thee (Muhammad*), know that they only follow their own lusts - - -.”

28/55: “To us (Muslims*) our deeds, and to you (“infidels”*) yours; peace be to you - - -.” Mecca 621 or 622 AD carried a much more peaceful tone than after Muhammad gained strength from 622 – 624 AD and needed a religion more fit for robberies, raids and war – and got it from Allah (or was it Allah who wanted more blood than before?) – resulting in contradiction with and abrogation of the old teachings.

29/18: “- - - the duty of the messenger is only to preach publicly (and clearly).” Well, as Muhammad grew more powerful, so did his wish for controlling the locals’ and later all the Arabs’ lives and religious ideas - - - force and punishment became means to a goal. With the necessary changes in the religion, and contradictions and necessary abrogations compared to the more peaceful 12-13 years in Mecca.

29/46: “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book - - -.“ No comments – but read 9/29 and 9/5 once more.

32/30: “So turn away from them and wait - - -.” When Muhammad grew more powerful, there was little waiting. The rest of the Arabian peninsula mainly was turned Muslim by the sword – and some by “gifts”/bribes and promises of looted riches – all of which demanded changes in the religion (or was it the other way around, initiated by a god who found his original religion was not good enough – or too little blood and human tragedy?) which caused contradictions between the old and the new version of Islam – and also abrogations naturally.

34/25: “Ye (“infidels”) shall not be questioned as to our sins, nor shall we be questioned as to what you do.” This may mean something like “we prefer to live and let live” and was one of the many more peaceful verses that became overruled – contradicted and abrogated – when Muhammad gained more power (34/25 is from ca. or a little after 620 AD.)

34/28: “We (Allah*) have not sent thee (Muhammad*) but as a universal (Messenger) to men giving them glad tidings - - -.”

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

35/24a: “Verily We (Allah*) have sent thee (Muhammad*) in truth as a bearer of Glad Tidings and as a warner - - -.” As for glad tidings, that only goes for the Muslims, and for far from all of them even.

36/17: “And our (Muhammad’s*) duty to proclaim the clear message.” Once more something from Mecca (ca. 615 – 616 AD), that was “killed” by “The verse of the Sword" (9/5) and a number of others when later Muhammad also became – or decided that he also was – an enforcer.

39/41: “Nor art thou (Muhammad*) set over them (“infidels”) to dispose of their affairs.” But 5 – 7 years later, when Muhammad started to gain power from 622 AD on, this changed – he became an overseer, enforcer and robber baron – and later a warlord - - - and rules/religion had to change. Or was it the other way around – that it was Allah who changed his mind and wanted more inhumanity, immoral action, and blood? Anyhow the result was contradictions and abrogations compared to the old.

41/34: “Repel (Evil) with what is better (Good*); then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate”.

42/6: “- - - thou (Muhammad*) art not the disposer of their affairs.” No, not around 614 – 618 AD. But after 622 AD he became quite a lot, included an enforcer – and verses like this were both contradicted and abrogated.

42/15: “There is no contention between us (Muslims*) and you (“infidels”).” May be not in 614 – 618 AD. But later Islam was the power class = Muslims (with Muhammad as dictator), and non-Muslims “thoroughly subdued” - - - and with the religion a lot changed = contradictions and abrogations in the Quran.

42/48: “Thy (Muhammad’s) duty is but to convey (the Message (the Quran* - or the peaceful parts which existed in 614 – 618 AD*))”. From some years later on, Islam found some of their duties to be more brutal enforcers, so among other verses this one and a lot more were contradicted and abrogated.

43/83: “So leave them (“infidels”*) to babble and play (with their vanities) - - -.” Comments like 42/48 just above.

43/89: “But turn away from them, and say ‘Peace.’” Comments like 43/48 above.

44/59: “So wait thou (Muhammad*) and watch; for they (people*) (too) are waiting”. Here in the peaceful religion from the middle of the Mecca period, Muhammad should wait and see. He became stricter some 10 years later – much stricter.

45/14: “Tell those who believe, to forgive those who do not look forward to the Days of Allah (Day of Doom*).” But the word “forgive" was slowly forgotten after 622 AD – when they also took on the duty of also being enforcers.

46/9: “- - - 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.

46/135a: “(Muhammad*) - - - be in no haste about the (unbelievers) - - -.” When he gained power he got more haste – f.x. the reluctant Arabs (and a lot of others) who were not won by gifts and free plundering/enslaving/rape, were won by the sword – in stark contradiction to what Muslims like to tell. "Become Muslim or fight and die!"

46/135b: “(Thine (duty Muhammad is*) but) to proclaim the Message (the Quran*).” This was in 620 AD. The changes came in and after 622 AD.

50/39: “Bear, then, with patience, all that they (“infidels”*) say - - -.” The patience became much less talked about from one year later on (622 AD).

**50/45: “We (Allah*) know best what they (the “infidels”*) say; and thou (Muhammad*) art not one to overawe them by force.” Knowing the later history, this verse is a big, ironic or sardonic joke. This surah is from 614 AD

51/50-51b: “I (Muhammad*) am from Him (Allah*) a Warner to you (Muslims*), clear and open. And make not another (person/thing/idea*) an object of worship with Allah: I am from Him a Warner to you, clear and open!” This is from Mecca 620. Muhammad is still military weak – and still only a warner. Later he became an enforcer (much of Arabia became Muslims on the point of the sword):

51/54: “So (Muhammad*) turn away from them (“infidels”*) - - -.” One more point that was contradicted and abrogated when Muhammad grew military strong from 2 years later on.

52/45: “So (Muhammad/Muslims*) leave them (“infidels”*) alone until they encounter that Day - - -.” Leave them alone till the Day of Doom. But neither Muhammad nor his successors left them alone as soon as Islam was military strong enough. And has Islam at any time ever after left their surroundings alone in periods when Islam was military strong?

52/47: “And verily, for those who do wrong (“infidels”*), there is another punishment besides this (that in the long run they will lose – and meet the other punishment: Hell*)” A comforting thought at the difficult end of the Mecca period - so just leave them alone. (A confirmation of 52/45, really).

53/29: “Therefore shun those who turn away from Our (Muhammad’s*) Message - - -.” That was Muhammad’s words around 612 – 615 AD. 10 years lager the “melody” changed.

67/26: “- - - I (Muhammad*) am (sent) only to warn plainly in public.” But 3 - 4 years later (from 622 AD) he started to take on more dirty and inhuman jobs, too.

73/10: “And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity).” This is an early surah (611 – 614 AD). Muhammad has little or no real power, and is a peaceful preacher. Both he and the religion showed other faces when he gained power – or may be Allah wanted more blood and gore and suffering from 622 AD on.

73/11: “And leave Me (Allah*) (alone with those) in possession of the good things of life, who (yet) deny the Truth, and bear with them for a little while.” That little while lasted exactly till Muhammad gained enough military power – then he (or Allah*) went for a stricter regime.

79/45: “Thou (Muhammad*) art but a Warner - - -.” And he stayed like that - - - until he grew powerful enough to do more than warning – f.x. enforcing and empire-building. And it is a question who changed his mind around 622 AD – Allah or Muhammad? And who changed the religion – Allah or Muhammad? That chance demanded that the relatively peaceful religion from the 12 - 13 years in Mecca had to be both contradicted and abrogated on many a point.

86/17: “Therefore grant a delay to the Unbelievers: give respite to them gently (for a while). Guess if this one from 614 AD was abrogated when Muhammad grew more powerful!!

88/22: “Thou (Muhammad*) art not to manage (men’s) (religious*) affairs - - -.” One more verse which was abrogated of the more powerful Muhammad – or Allah – later.

109/6: “To you (non-Muslim*) be your ways (in religion*), and to me (Muhammad or Muslims*) mine.” It is typical that Muhammad and Islam were peaceful in Mecca – they were not strong enough for anything else. And besides it is possible Muhammad meant it like that, but was destroyed morally by his success in Medina later, like many scientists believe.

We repeat:“But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and size them, beleaguer them, and lay in wait for them in every stratagem (of war).” Not even an incitement, but a clear order.

032 9/5f: See 9/5e and others above. Do you think Jesus and Muhammad were in the same line of prophets?

033 9/5g: "- - - (use*) any stratagem of war - - -". Compare this to NT!

034 9/5h: "- - - (use*) any stratagem of war - - -". Why do you think terrorists behave like they do, and why they to say the least of it do not respect the Geneva Conventions, and not behave like, but are depraved and degenerated "inhumans" - - - and heroes to many a Muslim?

035 9/5i: "- - - the forbidden months - - -". The old Arabs had 4 holy months a year (numbers 1, 7, 11, and 12). Muhammad took them into Islam. A clear Arabism.

036 9/5j: "But if they (non-Muslims*) repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity (= became Muslims*), then open a way for them - - -". If they become Muslims, then let them live - "no compulsion in religion"?

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.)

037 9/5k: "- - - regular prayers - - -". A minimum number of 5 prayers a day and at roughly fixed times of the day was so essential for Allah that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. Yahweh did not care about such formalities - pray when there was a reason or a need or a wish. One more strong proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god.

038 9/5l: "- - - regular prayers - - -". But what is the idea with prayers if Allah has predestined every detail long before and according to his unchangeable Plan, like the Quran states many places? If "nothing and nobody can change his Plan", prayers have no effect, and are just so much wasted time and effort.

039 9/5m: "- - - charity - - -". One of the positive sides with Islam is its stress on charity - though the moral value are reduced by the fact that the main thing is not to help, but to gain merit in Heaven, and by the fact that you gain just as much merit from helping your nearest family as from helping strangers - which places strangers far down on the priority list.

040 9/5n: "- - - for Allah is Oft-forgiving - - - ". Allah can forgive nobody unless he exists and is a god.

040a 9/5o: "- - - for Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

041 9/6a: "If one amongst the Pagan ask thee for asylum, grant it to him, so that he may hear the word of Allah - - -". Not because he is a human or anything; but only: To teach him Islam. It tells something about the moral code Muslims are imprinted.

042 9/6b: "- - - they (pagans*) are men without knowledge (when the Quran speaks about knowledge, it always religious knowledge - Islam)". Sometimes one may wonder: What is best - no knowledge, or wrong knowledge? - the Quran is full of mistakes, etc. Besides: A lot of people had more knowledge than the early Muslims, but for Muhammad only knowledge about his new religion counted. A fact which in the long run destroyed the power of Islam - Europe and later USA caught up with them and took the lead in most aspects of life. Not least in moral philosophy, where Islam was totally stagnant in a moral thinking from a war tribal way of thinking in an area which already at that time culturally was a backward, primitive backstreet. Most of the area still is in that backstreet, even though thoughts and ideas from the outside have forced their way in in most of the Muslim countries. But lacking real knowledge about moral thinking and basic facts, Muslims an Islam often boast about their leading position in morality.

043 9/6c: "- - - knowledge". See 26/83a below.

044 9/7a: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". The mantra Muhammad most often use to glue himself to Allah and his own platform of power; his god.

045 9/7b: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

046 9/7c "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

047 9/7d: "- - - the Sacred Mosque - - -". The Kabah mosque in Mecca.

048 9/7e: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

049 9/7f: "- - - Allah doth love the righteous." As parts of the Quran and parts of Sharia are horribly unrighteous compared to all normal moral rules, do Allah then love Muslims if they live according to those points in the Quran and in Sharia?

050 9/7g: "- - - righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, i is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

051 9/8a: "With (fair words from) their (non-Muslims*) mouths they entice you, but their hearts are averse from you; most of them are rebellious and wicked". A clear message: Do not trust non-Muslims (one of the pieces necessary for producing an "enemy picture" of "the others".)

052 9/8b: “- - - most of them (pagans*) are rebellious and wicked.” Of course - they are not even Jews, nor Christians, who are bad enough. Far below Muslim moral standard.

053 9/9a: “The Signs of Allah - - -“. There is no – not one single – sign in the Quran - or anywhere else - which with correct logic proves Allah. (There is not one single case in the entire book where it is proved that it really is Allah who has caused what is said to be signs. And then it proves nothing and signifies nothing – any priest in any religion can say just the same about his god(s)!! Words are that cheap ). Guess if Muslims had told about it if a real proof had existed!

054 9/9b: "The Signs of Allah they (non-Muslims*) have sold for a miserable price - - -". The Quran often insinuates that the ones not accepting Islam, does so because they prefer good time in this world - "a miserable price" - and not because they honestly believe the Quran and Islam are wrong and a false religion. For leaders of sects to use such claims is good psychology for two reasons:

1. It indicates that "we" are better than the "others".

2. It adverts thoughts like "if 'they' really believe here is something wrong, maybe there is a reason for that, and maybe we should see into it'. Leaders of fringe sects - like Islam was in its early years - normally do not want facts from the outside.

Also see 3/77a above.

055 9/9c: "- - - His (Allah's) Way - - -". Either figurative for Islam (most likely here) or the road to the Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f below.

056 9/9d: "- - - evil indeed are the deeds (hindered persons from becoming Muslims*) they (non-Muslims) have done". If Allah exists, is a god, and the Quran has told the truth and only the truth, it is bad to hinder people to become Muslims (if not it is a good deed). If Allah does not exist or is not a god, and the god(s) the non-Muslims believe in, also does not exist, it does not matter what is done - well, perhaps to hinder them from Islam is a slightly good thing, as most religions have better moral codes, etc. If the non-Muslims' god - f.x. Yahweh - do exist, it is a good thing to lead people there instead. And if Allah exists, but is something from the dark forces (which f.x. the Quran's moral code indicates), it is a good thing to lead people away from him.

057 9/9e: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

058 9/9f: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

059 9/10a: "- - - a Believer - - -". = A Muslim.

060 9/10b: "In a Believer they (non-Muslims*) respect not the ties - - - of kinship - - -". This is both an ironic and a dishonest remark. Sure 9 is from 631 AD, and by then Muhammad had long since, even in the Quran, told his followers to leave even parents and siblings if these did not accept one's belonging to Islam.

061 9/10c: “It is they (the non-Muslims*) who have transgressed all bounds”. Please read the surahs from Medina and Islamic history, and then try to read this sentence once more. (F.x. in at least 90% of Muhammad's armed incidents, Muhammad was the aggressor - and in most cases to gain riches and/or power.)

062 9/10d: (A9/16): “It is they (the non-Muslims*) who have transgressed all bounds”. But as so often also Arab words have more than one meaning. Another meaning of the word “al-mu’tadun” gives this meaning: “It is they who are the attackers”. Clearly and easily understood, and with no doubt about the exact meaning? And these variants naturally and like always also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning

063 9/11a: "- - - regular prayers - - -". A minimum number of 5 prayers a day and at roughly fixed times of the day was so essential for Allah that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. Yahweh did not care about such formalities - pray when there was a reason or a need or a wish. One more strong proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god.

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

064 9/11b: "- - - regular prayers - - -". But what is the idea with prayers if Allah has predestined every detail long before according to his unchangeable Plan, like the Quran states many places? If "nothing and nobody can change his Plan", prayers have no effect, and are just so much wasted time and effort.

065 9/11c: "- - - charity - - -". One of the positive sides with Islam is its stress on charity - though the moral value are reduced by the fact that the main thing is not to help, but to gain merit in Heaven, and by the fact that you gain just as much merit from helping your nearest family as from helping strangers - which places strangers far down on the priority list.

066 9/11d: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam.

067 9/11e: "- - - (thus) do We (Allah*) explain the Signs in detail - - -". Similar claims you will find here and there in the Quran, and what they have in common, is that not one of them explains the claimed "signs" - there are claims and talk, but never a logically explanation - which in reality does not mean very much, as there is not one single logically valid sign for Allah anywhere, included in the Quran. If it had existed, you bet Islam and Muslims had told you about it every second hour. Claims plenty, documented and logically valid ones exactly none.

068 9/11f: "- - - Signs - - -". See 9/9a.

069 9/11g: "- - - for those who understand". This is a psychologically good trick: Flattery. You who believe in my teachings and follow me, are the intelligent ones who understand things. Who do not like to hear they are wise - especially among the uneducated and naive ones?

070 9/12a: “But if they (the leaders in Mecca*) violate their oath after their covenant - - - fight ye the chiefs of the Unfaithful - - -”. Well, for once Muhammad has a valid reason according to the laws of war: A broken covenant may be a reason for resumed war. This is shortly after taking Mecca, and he does not quite trust the old rulers (but the covenant was not broken, and there was no more war over Mecca then). But also see 9/12b just below. On the other hand the whole verse is bloody ironic, as Muhammad himself in the Quran states - and practices - that one should break even ones oaths if that gives a better result, and then if necessary pay Allah an expiation to be forgiven.

071 9/12b: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam.

072 9/12c: "- - - fight ye (Muslims*) the chiefs of Unfaith - - -". A clear order from "the Religion of Peace".

073 9/12d: "- - - fight ye (Muslims*) the chiefs of Unfaith (the pagan leaders of Mecca before Muhammad took over*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

 

074 6/12e: "- - - Unfaith - - -". All religions except Islam - here the pagan leaders in Mecca, but like so much in the Quran it is given a general meaning*).

075 9/12f: "- - - for their (non-Muslims*) oaths are nothing to them - - -". Strange words from a man who practiced himself and impressed on his followers that it is better to break an oath if that gave a better result, and who lived by his slogan "war is betrayal" or "war is deceit". (F.x. 2/225a and 5/89a+b above, and 16/91e and 66/2a below.

076 9/12g: "- - - that thus they (Mecca*) may be restrained". All non-Muslims shall be suppressed by Islam or made Muslims, all over the world, according to official and clear words in the Quran.

077 9/13a: “Will ye (Muslims*) not fight people who violated their oaths (like Muhammad did himself*), plotted to expel the Messenger - - -". A historical anomaly. see 4/13d above.

078 9/13b: “Will ye (Muslims*) not fight people who violated their oaths (like Muhammad did himself*), plotted to expel the Messenger - - -". See 9/1e above.

079 9/13c: “Will ye (Muslims*) not fight people who violated their oaths (like Muhammad did himself*), plotted to expel the Messenger - - -". It should not be necessary to tell that this contradict at least NT very much. Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Simply no. We may add that in addition to Jesus' military pacifism contra Muhammad's dedicated war religion, and Jesus' line of total honesty, contra Muhammad's stealing/robbing, etc. and contra Muhammad's al-Taqiyya (lawful lie) and Kitman (lawful half-truths) - though this was named and formalized later - there also is the difference in the view on keeping your word/promise/oath: here is not a little irony here, as Muhammad himself did not respect his own oaths very much - oaths could be broken if it paid better to do so, and then one if necessary - if the case was serious - one could pay expiation afterwards and everything was and is good and fine. Compare this to f.x. Matt 5/33-37: You shall not even swear, but be fully truthful and keep and stay by your word. Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? A fantasy.?

080 9/13d: “Will ye (Muslims*) not fight people who violated their oaths (like Muhammad did himself*), plotted to expel the Messenger, and took the aggressive lead by being the first (to assault) you?” The Quran says the best thing is to forgive - - - but why live according to one’s own words? To wage war and gain power for Muhammad and Islam is reality, the words are just words. And if you do not want to go to war, it is incredible! - you then are no good Muslim!!

081 9/13e: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

082 9/13f: "- - - it is Allah Whom ye (Muslims*) should more justly fear - - -". If he exist and if he is something powerful. (If he is from the dark forces, there is a real reason to fear him.)

083 9/13g: "- - - justly - - -". See 2/2b above.

084 9/13h: "- - - if ye believe". = If you believe in Muhammad and Islam - nothing else is belief according to the Quran.

085 9/14a: "Fight them - - -". A more direct order is not possible to get - - - and from the leader of the claimed "religion of peace".

0086 9/14b: "Fight them (the Unbelievers*) - - -". Compare this to "- - - turn the other cheek - - -" (f.x. Matt.5/38-42). Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? - stop joking.

087 9/14c: “Fight them (the not good Muslims*), and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame - - -.” This at least contradicts – and abrogates:

2/256: “Let there be no compulsion in Religion.”

00b 5/28: “If thou (“infidels”, Cain*) dost stretch thy hand against me (Muslims, Abel*), it is not for me to stretch my hand against thee to slay thee - - -.” When you read this, remember that Muslims have few if any overall moral code. What they have to do is to look for “What did Muhammad say about such things?” If he has said something, they take that as a codex – good moral or not. If not, they have to look in the book: “Is there a parallel situation somewhere?” If they find – sometimes by stretching imagination – that is the way to act, or the alibi for how one wishes to act. Mind also that this verse is one of the very few in all the Quran that is in accordance with the teachings of Jesus – one of the very few. And it is totally “murdered” by abrogations. This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5 . (At least 91 contradictions).

088 9/14d: "“Fight them (the “unbelievers”*), and Allah will punish them by your hands - - -". But why does an omnipotent god need help from humans to punish other humans - and risk that his followers will be killed or mutilated? - the last one an alternative the Quran never mentions.

**089 9/14e: “Fight them (the “unbelievers”*), and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them - - -”. When you fight non-Muslims, you are doing the work of the good and benevolent god Allah.

Some religion: Hating, fighting, stealing, plundering, raping, enslavement, and murdering are the work of the god.

And remember: The “ethics” in the Quran was for then, for now and forever - for us and for our children and our descendants for all future.

“What a wonderful world!” to quote Louis Armstrong.

But why does an omnipotent god need humans for doing the killing and suppression?

*090 9/14f: “(Allah will*) help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of the Believers”. To murder or mass murder non-Muslims in battle or other ways - remember that Muslims are ordered to “lie in wait for them with any stratagem of war” (9/5) - plus a lot of the killing end other atrocities were done after the fighting was over - will heal the breasts of the good Muslims.

It seems us that Muslims living according to the Quran may be not the best of neighbors. (But again: Remember that only a minority live according to these parts of that book - though our dangerous difficulty is that it often is impossible to know who is who).

*091 9/14g: “(Allah will*) help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of the Believers”. Only possible if he exists and is something powerful - good or bad.

092 9/14h: "- - - Believers". = Muslims.

093 9/15a: "For Allah will turn (in mercy) to whom He will - - -". A seemingly rational explanation for all the injustice in the world: Allah in his limitless wisdom has decided it like this. A "one-answer-fits-all" which in reality tells nothing.

094 9/15b: "- - - Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise". Not if all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran represents his claimed wisdom.

095 9/16a: “Or think that ye (Muslims*) that ye shall be abandoned (by Allah and not be rewarded for going to war*), as though Allah did not know those among you who strive with might and main - - -.” Just go to war – it is sure that Allah will reward you for it (as he is the good and benevolent god of “the Religion of Peace”.)

096 9/16b: “Or think that ye (Muslims*) that ye shall be abandoned (by Allah and not be rewarded for going to war*), as though Allah did not know those among you who strive with might and main (for the religion*)- - -.” But is the implicit claim here true? It only can be if Allah really exists and is a god, and if the Quran in addition has described him correctly - in a book full of mistakes, etc.

###097 9/16c: “Or think that ye (Muslims*) that ye shall be abandoned (by Allah and not be rewarded for going to war*), as though Allah did not know those among you who strive with might and main (for the religion*)- - -.” Compare this to the Bible. Even in the at places harsh OT, the wars were not for the religion, but to establish and later defend a national country for the Jews. And to compare it to NT and the teaching of Jesus simply has no meaning - the distance is too huge between Jesus and his teaching of love and peace, and Muhammad’s religion of distaste, suppression, hate, and war - if you cultivate distaste, distance between "us" and "the bad ones", and hate, it is easier to make your followers or underlings go to war. Muhammad invested much time and effort in such cultivation.

098 9/16d: “- - - take none (no non-Muslim*) for friends and protectors - - -”. It is hardly possible to forbid close contact between Muslims and others in more direct words.

099 9/16e: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims - no-one else are believers, according to the Quran.

100 9/16f: "- - - Allah is well acquainted with (all) that ye (Muslims*) do". A warning - do not try to cheat, because the god will see you. But also see 2/233h above.

101 9/16g: "- - - strive with might and main - - -" = fight with everything you have got included your wealth and your life.

102 9/16h: "- - - strive with might and main - - -" = fight with everything you have got included your wealth and your life. Compare this to Jesus' religion of love and peace. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? - no answers necessary.

103 9/16i: "- - - take none for friends or protectors except Allah, His Messenger (Muhammad*) and the (community of) Believers (Muslims*) - - -". Strongly contradicted by Yahweh and by Jesus in the Bible.

104 9/16j: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Another version of Muhammad's main mantra for gluing himself to the mighty god and his own platform of power, the same god.

105 9/16k: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. 

106 9/16l: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

107 9/16m: "But Allah is well acquainted with (all) ye do". A remainder: Allah sees everything and he rewards, but he also punishes - be good and obedient.

108 9/17a: “It is not for such as join gods with Allah (f.x. God/Yahweh*) - - -. - - - in Fire shall they dwell”. No hope for Christians with their Jesus – in spite of 2/62.

109 9/17b: “- - - such as join gods with Allah - - -". One of Muhammad's many distance inducing names for non-Muslims.

110 9/17c: "- - - join gods with Allah - - -". The old Arabs joined gods with their old pagan god al-Lah, whom Muhammad renamed to Allah. But for that no-one joins gods with him. They simply do not believe he exists, and believe in another god - or gods.

111 9/17d: "The work of such (non-Muslims*) bear no fruit - - -". For one thing it is the work of non-Muslims which has caused most of the progress for man in this world, and for another Yahweh and the Bible disagree strongly when it comes to persons who believe in the Bible.

112 9/17e: "- - - in Fire (Hell*) shall they dwell". See 3/77b above".

113 9/18a: "- - - the Last Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

114 9/18b: "- - - establish regular prayers - - -". This is one more of the proofs for that Yahweh is not the same god as Allah. To Allah a fixed minimum of prayers at relatively fixed times of the day is so essential that it is one of the 5 most essential points in the religion - one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. But to Yahweh such formalism is not interesting - pray when there is a need or a reason or a wish.

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.)

###115 9/18c: "- - - prayers - - -". But what is the idea with prayers in Islam? - if everything is predestined like the Quran frequently claims, prayers to Allah can have no effect and is just a waste of time and effort. This is a fact we never have seen Muslims debate among themselves, and if we try to ask, they normally refrain from answering or evade the question.

116 9/18d: "- - - Charity". One of the positive sides with the Quran is its stress on charity. The moral value of this is, however, reduced by the fact that the main point is not to help, but to gain merit in Heaven, and by the fact that you gain as much merit from helping your nearest as from helping strangers - and thus strangers end up far down on the priority list.

117 9/18e: "- - - fear none (at all) except Allah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible which wants you instead to fear Yahweh. 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.

118 9/18f: "It is they (Muslims*) who are expected to be on true guidance." The central word here is "is expected".

119 9/18g: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

120 9/18h: "- - - true guidance (the Quran*)". No book with that much wrong is true guidance.

121 9/19a: “Do ye make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Sacred Mosque, equal to (the pious service of) those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and strive with their might and mind (wages war - see 9/16 just above*) in the cause of Allah?”

Of course the active warriors – or terrorists - are the best. F. ex. the warriors in Darfur and terrorists anywhere think they are doing a pious service by killing and murdering - - and gang raping like in Darfur and other places where it is more like normal wars, not hit and run - and of course stealing and robbing for “good and lawful” reward also in this world.

Yes, a good and human and benevolent religion.

And some future for non-Muslims - one place in the Quran, the warriors are reminded that there are places with rich spoils of war not taken yet. In the West? – or other places? It does not matter – this verse tells once more that the warriors are the best Muslims - - - and that spoils of war are tempting.

122 9/19b: "- - -the Sacred Mosque - - -" = Kabah in Mecca.

123 9/19c: "- - - (the pious service of) those who - - - strive with might and main (= go to raids/war*) in the cause of Allah". The word "pious" here tells much more and a much truer story about Islam and its basic ethics and moral than cheap slogans like "the religion of peace". When reality collides with words of propaganda, we always believe in the reality. Islam is a pure war religion. (This reality also is easy to see if you read the surahs chronologically and see the development of Islam during the years of Muhammad, and the bloody war religion it became in Medina.)

124 9/19d: "- - - (the pious service of) those who - - - strive with might and main (= go to raids/war*) in the cause of Allah". This simply is the antipode of especially NT. Yahweh the same god as Allah? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? No - antipodes only can be antipodes also for gods and for prophets.

125 9/19e: "- - - the Last Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

126 9/19f: "- - - strive with might and mind - - -". One of the Quran's expressions for waging armed war.

127 9/19g: "- - - strive with might and mind in the cause of Allah- - -". Guess if this conflicts with the Bible! Even in the rather hard and harsh OT the wars were not for Yahweh, but for establishing and then defending a national state for the Jews, not for the religion. And In NT war is hardly an accepted thing at all. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Nope. Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? - more than nope.

**128 9/19h: “They (Muslims doing good deeds*) are not comparable in the sight of Allah (with the ones killing/waging raids/war for Muhammad/Allah*)”. Terrorists and others using weapons and murdering for Allah, are the best Muslims.

Guess if verses like these do their work on some single-minded or fanatic Muslims. Who said “there are verses in the Quran that can be disused for war and terror”? Wrong: It hardly is possible to be a really pious Muslim without using weapons against non-Muslims.

**129 9/19i: “They (Muslims doing good deeds*) are not comparable in the sight of Allah (with the ones killing/waging raids/war for Muhammad/Allah*)”. Terrorists and others using weapons and murdering for Allah, are the best Muslims. See 9/19h above.

130 9/19j: "- - - Allah guides not those who do wrong". Something to think about the next time you do something which is lawful according to sharia, but obviously wrong? - like punishing a raped woman to take a clear example. - or treating other human beings - male or female - in ways you would dislike to be treated yourself.

131 9/19k: "- - - Allah guides not those who do wrong". Allah can guide nobody if he does not exist - and even if he could guide; where do you end up if you follow a guidebook of a quality like the Quran?

132 9/19l: "- - - guide - - -". See 16/107 below.

133 9/19m: "- - - those who do wrong". In the Quran this normally is one of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

134 9/19n: "- - - do wrong". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

135 9/20a: "Those who believe - - -". = Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran and to Islam.

***136 9/20b: “Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with their might and main (= fight in raids/war*), in Allah’s cause, with their goods (= giving money to war expenses*) and their persons (= fighting personally in raids/war or terrorism - “any stratagem of war”*), have the highest rank in the sight of Allah - - -”.

Terrorists (- any stratagem of war" -) and other warriors are doubtlessly the very best Muslims.

In possible future times of troubles - remember that Muslims are ordered to make Islam the dominant religion and to suppress the members of all other religions - the few (? - 30% of Muslims “understands why terrorists do what they do“ according to international polls, tough that number varies some*) Muslims living according to the highest “ethics” for Muslims, will make a powerful and efficient 5. column in the West and other places. That is a simple military and security fact.

***137 9/20c: “Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with their might and main (= fight in raids/war*), in Allah’s cause, with their goods (= giving money to war expenses*) and their persons (= fighting personally in raids/war or terrorism - “any stratagem of war”*), have the highest rank in the sight of Allah - - -”. It is hardly worth the bother to tell that you find nothing like this in the Bible, not to mention in NT. Yahweh the same god as Allah? Jesus in the same line of prophets as Muhammad? Anyone able to believe such claims either need much more knowledge or a psychiatrist.

138 9/20d: "- - - strive with their might and mind - - -". A Muslim expression for taking part in armed raids, clashes, and war. The expression is not from the Bible.

139 9/20e: "(Warriors/terrorists*) have the highest rank in the sight of Allah". One more of the revealing fundamental points in the Quran. It is facts like these which tells the true story about Islam, not the cheap propaganda glorifications like "the very good man Muhammad" or "the Religion of Peace". And these many revealing points scattered all over especially the surahs from Medina, uniformly tell a dark story: A religion of war, suppression, apartheid - and not least about lawful dishonesty, lawful immoral and lawful inhumanity. (There are many parallels to Djingis Khan's war religion, to Nazism and to apartheid. Islam also has a superiority complex against all non-Muslims - it f.x. is seriously debated f. ex. in north Pakistan if even "the people of the Book" have half the value of a Muslim or less, and the Pagans are even worth far less).

###140 9/20f: "(Warriors/terrorists*) have the highest rank in the sight of Allah". Strongly contradicted by and incompatible to the Bible, and especially NT, which says that to be the greatest, you have to be the servant of the others, and be among the last ones, etc. (f.x. Mark 9/35). This is one of the many proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad does not belong to the same line of prophets - the teachings are too fundamentally, too deep, and on too many points too different. Simply one more fundamental point where the Quran is wrong. 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.

*141 9/20g: “- - - they (terrorists/warriors*) are the people who will achieve (salvation)”. At least the Quran is honest about some things - just like Hitler was in “Mein Kampf” - - - and few did believe Hitler until it was too late.

And not least: It is repeating one of the main incitements to war for Muhammad/Allah.

*142 9/20h: “- - - they (terrorists/warriors*) are the people who will achieve (salvation)”. The very antithesis of the NT - and one more of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh is not the same god as Allah or Jesus in the same line of prophets as Muhammad - the teachings, the moral code, etc. are too fundamentally, too deeply and on too many points far too different. And we remind you that both science and even more Islam has proved beyond any reasonable and unreasonable doubt that the Bible is not falsified, in spite of the Quran's never documented claim.

143 9/20-21: These two verses (and many more - we specifies this only now and then) are not from the Bible. There also is nothing similar - especially not in the NT. It simply is the antithesis to the NT. For this to be true - if Yahweh and Allah had been the same god - the god had to change from a bit harsh in OT, then more benevolent from Jesus and the New Covenant (f.x. Luke 20/22), for then not only to go back to his somewhat harshness, but to become a pure god of suppression and war not with the start of Muhammad, but after Muhammad came to Medina and started to need warriors.

*144 9/21a: “Their (terrorists/warriors*) Lord (Allah*) doth give them glad tidings of a Mercy (that terrorists/warriors for Allah are forgiven practically any sin*) from Himself (from Allah personally*), of His good pleasure (from the fighting and murdering they have done for the good and kind and benevolent god*), and the Gardens for them, wherein are delights (earth-like riches, luxury and women*) that endures”. The ultimate pep talk for war, terror and murder? In the name of a presumably peaceful religion and a kind and good god?

*145 9/21b: “Their (terrorists/warriors*) Lord (Allah*) doth give them glad tidings of a Mercy (that terrorists/warriors for Allah are forgiven practically any sin*) from Himself (from Allah personally*), of His good pleasure (from the fighting and murdering they have done for the good and kind and benevolent god*), and the Gardens for them, wherein are delights (earth-like riches, luxury and women*) that endures”. One more at least 110% proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that the Jewish prophets, not to mention Jesus, were not in the same line of prophets as Muhammad claimed to be. See 9/20h above.

146 9/21c: “- - - glad tidings - - -“. At best only partly right, but only for some of the Muslims and for no-one else. See 2/97 above and 61/3 below.

147 9/21d: "- - - a Mercy from Himself (Allah*) - - -"Please read 1/1a and see how merciful he is. Reality is more true than nice words.

148 9/21e: "- - - Gardens - - -". The Quran's and Islam's paradise - see 10/9f above.

149 9/21f: "- - - Gardens for them (Muslim warriors and terrorists - through the centuries there have been many terrorists from Islam (f.x. the Assassins, but also warriors and "normal" people)*)". In the Bible it is not possible to go to Paradise as reward for war and terrorism and murder, etc. - and especially not in NT (a reason for thinking if the two gods had been one and the same: There may have been a reason why a god changed his teaching to a milder, but how to explain that an omniscient god like Allah is claimed to be, changed to softer, for than to become MUCH more bloody and spiteful and hateful than he ever was before?

150 9/21g: "- - - wherein (in Paradise*) are delights that endure". The delights in the Muslims' paradise are good food and drinks, excellent clothes, an excellent place to live, good weather and cool shades plus plenty of women for the men. More or less a poor, uneducated and naive warrior's dream of the life of a king or something here on Earth - an Earth-like and exceedingly boring paradise in long eternities. Is this the best an omniscient, omnipotent god has to offer? (And he has even less to offer women.)

Also note how different the Bible's paradise is from Muhammad's: In the Quran royal, Earth-like luxury + lots of sex/women, in the Bible (f.x. Luke 20/35-36 there is no sex or Earthlike luxury, but "they will become like angels". The same god behind two so incompatible paradises?

*151 9/22a: “They (terrorists/warriors*) will dwell therein (in paradise) forever". 11/108c may indicate that Islam's Paradise is not forever.

*152 9/22b: “They (terrorists/warriors*) will dwell therein (in paradise) forever. Verily in Allah’s presence is a reward, the greatest (of all)”. Warriors/terrorists are in so high esteem in the eyes of Allah, that they will be invited to live in the parts of paradise that has Allah’s presence. (In the Muslim paradise some parts are even better than others - Jesus f. ex. only lives in the 2. heaven, whereas Moses was a better prophet and lives in heaven number four, and top prophets like Abraham and Muhammad of course in number seven, closest to Allah, who resides above number seven. In addition some regions of the heavens are better than others - in the heaven for ordinary Muslims, there f. ex. are 4 or 6 or perhaps more gardens - Islam does not know for sure - one better than the other (just hope you, your wives and your children does not merit different gardens).

Compared to 9/21 this may be an even more ultimate pep talk.

153 9/22c: "Verily - - -". See 2/2a above.

154 9/22d: "Verily in Allah's presence is a reward, the greatest (of all)". We are back to the old question: Does he ever exist? The only place you ever find him, is in the Quran and other books based on the words of a man of very doubtful morality who liked power, riches for bribes - and women. And a man who advised his followers to use dishonest means when that gave a better result - this even according to the Quran itself. (F.x. broken oaths.)

155 9/23a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran.

156 9/23b: “Take not for protectors your father and your brothers if they love infidelity above Faith (= are not Muslims*): if any of you do so, they do wrong.” Even today some sects use this technique – break as much as possible of the contact and stop as many as possible of the impulses from the outside. “We want only our ideas to influence our proselytes and followers.” It of course is a way of stopping correcting thoughts and facts. And it so definitely is mental and social pressure – compulsion. It at least is contradicted by:

2/256: “Let there be no compulsion in religion - - -.”

This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses (here are 89 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5. (At least 91 contradictions).

A small NB: When reading this verse, remember that family bonds in the old Arabia were extremely strong - they often were in war cultures built on tribes. A heart-breaking verse which tells much about Muhammad and about Islam.

157 9/23c: "- - - infidelity - - -". = Not believing in Muhammad and his new religion. But is it infidelity if they f.x. believe in Yahweh and Yahweh happen to exist? - and even more so if Allah do not exist? If the old books tell the truth, Yahweh has proved his existence many times, but Allah never - and even worse: The Quran tries to prove him with a lot of invalid "signs" and some as invalid "proofs" - a proof for that Muhammad had no real proofs for Allah. If he had had, he had used them instead. Besides: The use of fast-talk and invalid proofs are hallmarks of cheaters and deceivers.

158 9/23d: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

159 9/23e: "- - - do wrong". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

***160 9/24a: “If (your closest family or closest relatives*) are dearer to you than Allah, or His Messenger (Muhammad*), or the striving (waging war*) in His (Allah’s*) cause - then wait until Allah brings his Decision (- he will punish you*)”. Islam is a religion of extremes. Nothing - NOTHING - can be permitted to mean more for you than Muhammad - and war for Islam - on this earth, and Allah in the possible next. This is as bad as Stalin, Hitler, Mao and Pol Pot at their most extreme. And friendly contacts - not to mention friendship - with non-Muslims are gigabytes on the way in direction of Hell.

161 9/24b: "- - - Allah, or His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A version of Muhammad's main mantra to glue himself to the god and to his own platform of power".

162 9/24c: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

163 9/24d: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

164 9/24e: "- - - or the striving in His (Allah's*) cause ("Quran-speak" for waging war*) - - -". Going to war for Muhammad/Allah gives top marks in the claimed "religion of peace". Guess if this is contradicted by the NT! 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.

165 9/24f: (A32): “- - - then wait (ye who are not good enough Muslims*) until Allah brings about His Decision - - -.” Islam still debates what Allah means here – some bad day or some decline for them here on Earth, or the Day of Doom? And when Muslim scholars have to debate a sentence, that means that the meaning is not “clear and easy to understand" - the Quran often is not clear.

166 9/24g: "- - - guides - - -". See 16/107 below.

167 9/24h: "- - - the rebellious". The ones not believing in or completely accepting the Quran and Muhammad. One of Muhammad's many distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

168 9/25a: “Assuredly Allah did help you in many battlefields - - -.” Often claimed, never proved.

169 9/25b: “Assuredly Allah did help you in many battlefields - - -.” – and consequently he can be expected to do the same in future battlefields. A good pep talk. 

170 9/25c: "Assuredly - - -". See 2/2b above.

171 9/25d: "- - - the day of Hunayn - - -". This refers to a battle in 630 AD. But a sentence like this would be meaningless to everybody who did not know this - and as the Quran is a copy from the "mother book" in heaven, it is the same book as all the earlier 124ooo (according to Islam) prophets got - which all were copies of the same book. None of all those claimed 124ooo + none of their claimed followers could understand it. And there are MANY such sentences in the Quran. Just read the book and see how much Abraham or Moses or Samuel or David or Isaiah or a prophet in Siberia or Greenland or Canada or Mexico or Peru or Brazil or England or White Russia or Pakistan or China or the Philippines or Australia and many other places in the years long before Muhammad, would have understood of this. Remember that according to the Quran all communities and cultures god prophets were teaching Islam at some time - and their books were copies of the same "mother book" from which the Quran was copied - still according to the Quran. Surrealistic. (Though some Muslims tries to explain things away with that it just is the core of the "mother book" which was sent to each prophet - the rest was individual. But this is not what is said in the Quran.)

172 9/25e: "- - - the day of Hunayn - - -". In this battle some 10ooo-12ooo Muslim warriors met some 3ooo-4ooo non-Muslims. All the same - perhaps because of over-confidence - the Muslims were on the point of losing the battle before they managed to turn the tide. A good pep talk. The battle-hardened core of Muhammad’s army plus the reality of 3 times as many warriors, finally manage to turn the tide of the battle - but for the morals of the large number of fresh warriors, it of course was better psychology to explain that it was Allah who - as usual - wanted the Muslims to win, and sent down an army of invisible angles fighting together with the Muslims. As said: A good pep talk.

173 9/25f: "- - - the day of Hunayn - - -". A reference nobody could understand much of until after it happened. Not to mention people not living in Arabia - Allah is claimed to be a god for all the world - so that they at least might know the name. A historical anomaly - see 4/13d above.

174 9/25g: "- - - the day of Hunayn - - -". 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.

175 9/26a: "- - - Messenger - - -". See 4/13d above.

176 9/26b: "- - - the Believers - - -" = Muslims - in this case the Muslim warriors in Muhammad's army.

177 9/26c: "- - - forces which ye saw not - - -". Muhammad claimed that here like in some other battles Allah sent down large forces of angel warriors to help the Muslims in battles". But why take part in primitive battles, when he - Allah - "just can say 'Be' and it is"? Such claims about the necessity of wars and battles have no meaning when an omniscient god is involved. But if there was no god, but only a charismatic warlord pep-talking to his warriors, there suddenly is logic in it all.

178 9/26d: "- - - thus doth He (Allah*) punish the Unbelievers - - -". But why did an omnipotent god need 10ooo-12ooo Muslims to do it? - an omnipotent god could easily do this himself. There is no logic in the claim - not unless it in reality is Muhammad who needed an "explanation" for why his followers time and again and again had to wage war.

179 9/26e: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". = Any non-Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran. It also is one of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

180 9/26f: "- - - thus doth he reward those without Faith". See 3/77b above.

181 9/26g: "- - - those without Faith". Any and all non-Muslims. One of Muhammad's many distance inducing names for them.

182 9/26h: "- - - Faith". = Islam.

183 9/27a: (A36): “Again will Allah, after this, turn (in mercy) to whom He will - - -.” What does this refer to? – Razi believes to the Muslims who fought badly shortly before at Hunayn in 630 AD. Tabari and others believe it means “infidels” generally. Another small detail that had not been unclear if a god had made the book. And a detail much bigger after all than “the last comma.”

184 9/27b: "- - - Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

185 9/27c: "- - - Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". Does this in this special case refer to people/non-Muslims in general? - or does it refer to the Muslims who behaved badly in the battle of Hunayn? Muslim scholars disagree - the language in the Quran many places are unclear.

186 9/28a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims.

187 9/28b: "Truly - - -". See 2/2b above.

188 9/28c: “Truly the Pagans are unclean - - -”. Pagans are the lowest caste in Islam - even lower than Jews and Christians. Not a negative name but a negative description - like so often when the Quran talks about non-Muslims.

189 9/28d: “Truly the Pagans (people neither Muslims nor Jews nor Christians) are unclean - - -” And what is said in the Quran is valid also today and forever. During the Muslim military expansion, pagans frequently were very harshly treated - killed by the thousands and even by the tens of thousands and more f.x. in Sind and the rest of India. Also from Africa there are bad stories, but there is less written documentation from Africa.

190 9/28e: “Truly the Pagans (people neither Muslims nor Jews nor Christians) are unclean, so let them not - - - approach the Sacred Mosque". Now you know why those people are not permitted there.

191 9/28f: “Truly the Pagans (people neither Muslims nor Jews nor Christians) are unclean, so let them not - - - approach the Sacred Mosque". Part of the sharia laws.

192 9/28g: “Truly the Pagans (people neither Muslims nor Jews nor Christians) are unclean, so let them not - - - approach the Sacred Mosque". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

193 9/28h: "- - - the Sacred Mosque - - -". The Kabah (means "the cube") mosque in Mecca.

194 9/28i: "- - - soon will Allah enrich you, if he wills - - -". If you do not become richer, the reason is not your laziness, lack of knowledge about your job or anything - it is Allah who in his unfathomable wisdom has decided it like that - and similar if you grow rich.

195 9/28j: "- - - Allah is All-Knowing - - -". Just another example of never proved claims in the Quran - you will find more than we refer. Also see 2/233h above.

196 9/28k: "- - - Allah is - - - All-Wise". Not if the Quran is an example of his knowledge or his wisdom - too much is wrong in that book.

####197 **9/29a: “Fight those who believe not in Allah - - -.” A most clear order - - - in spite of “no compulsion in religion” (2/256). One of those clear orders which shows reality and belies the glorious words. As said before: Whenever there is discrepancy between reality and propaganda, we believe in the reality.

Compare this sentence with the 3 samples below and weep:

2/256: “Let there be no compulsion in religion”. This is the flagship for all Muslims who wants to impress non-Muslims about how peaceful and tolerant Islam is. But NB! NB! The surah says: “Let it be - - -.” It is an incitement or – judging also from 2/255 – more likely a wish, it is not a manifested fact. It is a hope or a goal for the future, it is not something that exist – and all the same most Muslims quote it like this: “There is no compulsion in Religion” - - - a small, little “Kitman” (lawful half-truth – an expression special for Islam together with “al-Taqiyya, “the lawful lie) makes the Quran and the religion sound much more friendly and tolerant.

5/28: “If thou (“infidels”, Cain*) dost stretch thy hand against me (Muslims, Abel*), it is not for me to stretch my hand against thee to slay thee - - -.” When you read this, remember that Muslims have few if any overall moral codes. What they have to do is to look for “What did Muhammad say about such things?” If he has said or done something, they take that as a moral code – good moral or not. If not, they have to look in the book: “Is there a parallel situation somewhere?” If they find – sometimes by stretching imagination – that is the way to act, or the alibi for how one wishes to act. Mind also that this verse is one of the very few in all the Quran that is in accordance with the teachings of Jesus – one of the very few. And it is totally “murdered” by abrogations.

29/46: “And dispute ye not with the People of the Book - - -. “ No comments – but read 9/29 once more.

##198 9/29b: "Fight those who do not believe - - -". An extreme contradiction to the Bible - incompatible to even OT. Religion never was the reason for war in OT - it was fight for land - and in NT armed fighting hardly is accepted at all. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Impossible is the only possible answer to both.

###199 9/29c: “Fight those who believe not in Allah - - - until they pay jizya (extra tax - sometimes heavy) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” A clear and unmistakable order. The softest word possible: Discrimination. There are a number of stronger ones. And the jizya frequently was high. Comments on how it is to live under such helpless apartheid conditions is not necessary - the Negroes in South Africa or the Southern States in USA in earlier times could tell you - even though they at least did not have to pay an extra tax on top of all.

Also see other chapters (in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran")- f.x. “Muslims are better than other people”, like 25/44 or 68/35+36, and “Age Golden Age of Coexistence".

200 9/29d: “Fight those who believe not in Allah - - - until they pay jizya (extra tax - sometimes heavy) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” One of the elements in the sharia laws.

201 9/29e: "- - - Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to Allah and to his own platform of power.

202 9/29f: "- - - 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 that 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, 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 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 "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). 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 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, and 72/26. 

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".

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"?)

If the Quran simply belongs among the apocryphal books, many things are easy to understand, and it at least belongs in that line and tradition, even if it is further "out" than most of the others. Muhammad also fits the picture of the leader of an apocryphal sect, admittedly more immoral and bloody than most of the others.

Also see 30/40h below.

203 9/29g: "- - - Prophet (Muhammad') - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

204 9/29h: (Islam is)”the religion of Truth”. It is not 100% - an understatement - the truth with that many mistakes, etc. in the Quran. The difficult additional question is: With that many mistaken facts - are there also mistakes in the religious claims? And in addition there are the facts of “al-Taqiyya” (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth) and broken oaths and deceit - how much in a religion using such means is true? Much simply is proved wrong +: With all those errors, etc. it least it is not made by an omniscient god.

205 9/29i: "- - - Truth - - -". As mentioned in 9/29d just above, the word in this case is proved wrong, but you may look at 2/2b above anyhow.

206 9/29j: "- - - (fight the non-Muslims*) (even if they are) of the People of the Book - - - ". An order impossible to misunderstand - from the claimed "good an benevolent god" to "the (claimed) religion of Peace".

207 9/29k: "- - - the People of the Book - - ". = Jews, Christians, and Sabeans. The last ones most likely were Christians from the then mainly Christian Saba/Sabah/Sheba in what is now south Yemen, but there are a couple of other possible explanations (one more point where the Quran is unclear).

208 9/29l: "- - - the People of the Book - - ". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

209 9/29m: "- - - until they (non-Muslims*) pay Jizya - - -". Strongly contradicted in NT, which says you shall give to the emperor what belongs to the emperor (the tax) and to Yahweh what belonged to Yahweh (the souls*). I.e. do not mix taxation etc. with the religion (f.x. Matt. 22/15-21). Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? 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.

210 9/29n: "- - - jizya - - -". This is a special tax the Quran orders non-Muslims to pay in Muslim countries. In contradiction to the zakat - tax for Muslims - which was regulated in the Quran, there was no limit to the jizya, neither to what it could be used for, nor for how big it could be. The result was that when the leaders needed money, they demanded more jizya - sometimes so much that the non-Muslims had to flee because it was impossible for them to pay. You sometimes meet Muslims claiming the jizya is compensation for that the non-Muslims do not have to serve in the Military, etc. But this is mentioned neither in the Quran, nor in Hadiths - jizya simply is a fiscal tax to get money. Less often mentioned is the land-tax - rent for land - which also could be high. Muhammad f.x. demanded 50% from Jews permitted to live on in Khaybar.

211 9/29o: (YA1282): “- - - Until they (non-Muslims) pay jizya with willing submission (“an yadin”)”. But the Arab word “an yadin” – literally “from the hand” - has more meanings and it “has been variously interpreted” in Islam. "Clear" language like so often in the Quran.

###212 9/29p: The non-Muslims in Muslim countries shall pay jizya (extra tax), "and feel themselves subdued". A sentence which is NEVER quoted by Muslims in debates. But a most central sentence when it comes to telling what status, power and position non-Muslims according to the Quran shall have in a Muslim state. And it was harsh realities many places in the old times - they had to pay the Jizya under demeaning conditions at times, and the tax could be so high, that it was ruinous at places and times.

###213 9/29q: The non-Muslims in Muslim countries shall pay jizya (extra tax), "and feel themselves subdued". What had been the reaction if a non-Muslim country had demanded this for their Muslim citizen? - remember here that also this part of the Quran is valid today and forever.

214 9/30a: "The Jews call 'Uzayr a son of God - - -". This is flatly wrong - Ezra was a central person in the rebuilding after the Jews returned from Babylon, but there never was even a whisper about that he was the son of Yahweh. Now, Muslims admits this, but claim that the Jews around Yathrib (Medina) said so. We have not been able to find out if this is true or just another al-Taqiyya, but it also is totally irrelevant: Any god making a Quran had known the truth and not made a blemish like this. Then who made the Quran?

But it is relevant for another question: Why do Muslims mean that it should mean anything what Jews in tiny Medina in the middle of nearly nowhere meant in this case? - did the maker of the Quran live there and get his information by way of an Arabism from the locals? In that case he was no universal, omniscient god.

215 9/30b: "- - - 'Usayr (Ezra*) - - -" A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

216 9/30c: "- - - Christians - - - Christ - - -". These names were coined only some time after Jesus' death. A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

217 9/30d: “- - - the Christians call Christ the son of God - - - (in this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old (the Jews*) used to say". Wrong: As mentioned in 9/30a above, the Jews never used to say so - that there was a son of God. If the Jews at Yathrib/Medina said so, this was something local. As they had the old scriptures it is unlikely they believed f.x. Ezra was son of Yahweh, but we have found no reliable source saying anything about this. But to repeat ourselves: Any god making a Quran had known the truth and not made a blemish like this. Then who made the Quran?

218 9/30e: “- - - the Christians call Christ the son of God - - - (in this) they but imitate what the Unbelievers of old (the Jews*) used to say. Allah’s curse be on them: - - -”. We are back to the old facts: Jesus himself many times called God “father”. There were lots of witnesses to this. It was written down a few years later. The Quran vehemently denies it. The Quran has neither witnesses nor any other proofs. The Quran was written more than 600 years later and all the same offers only claims and statements - not one document. Muhammad had a lot to gain if Jesus was not the son of God - if Jesus is closely related to God, Muhammad obviously is not the greatest of prophets (irony; he in reality was no real prophet as he did not have the gift of being able to make prophesies - he never even claimed or pretended to have it), and though Muslims may be right that Muhammad personally did not care all too much about money except for using it for bribes, there is no doubt that he liked power and that he spent large sums for “buying” followers (his lust for power is easy to see from the texts in the Quran and the Hadiths). The end of the quote is rather sympathetic (?!). Similar statements in 2/116 – 4/171 – 10/68 – 17/111 – 18/4 – 18/5 -19/88-89 – 23/91 – 25/2.The reason for this quote may be threefold:

Muhammad’s obsession with that there only was one god.

The fact that if Jesus in some way was the son of God/Yahweh, Muhammad very obviously was not the greatest of prophets.

If Jesus was the son of the god, would be difficult to make people listen to Muhammad and not to the Bible – tales about falsified Bible or not.

If Muhammad partly believed in his own religion, point 1 may have been the main one. If he did not – and very clearly he knew that parts of it were not true (f. ex. the explanations why he could not make miracles) – parts 2 and 3 were the main ones (minding his platform of power).

219 9/30f: “- - - how they (among others the Christians*) are deluded away from the Truth! (that the god has no son, or may be from the claimed truth of the Quran*)”. For comments see among others 9/30c just above. Besides: Living according to a "holy" book so full of mistakes that it is from no god, like the Quran, also may be a delusion.

220 9/30g: “- - - the Truth! (the teachings of the Quran*)”. With that many mistakes in the book, the Quran at best is partly the truth. Also see 2/2b above and 13/1 below.

221 9/31a: "They (Jews and Christians*) take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords (gods*)". This is a reference to saints. It is wrong that they are reckoned to be gods - they are thought to be go-betweens. But it is clear that such go-betweens are not mentioned in the Bible. You do not find them among protestants (but shia Muslims have a tendency to believe in saints).

222 9/31b: "They (Jews and Christians*) take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords (gods*)". See 9/25g above.

223 9/31c: "- - - Christ the son of Mary - - -". See 5/110a above.

224 9/31d : "- - - yet they (the Christians*) were commanded to worship but One God - - -". Here is intended Allah, which is wrong - Christians (and Jews) were commanded to worship Yahweh.

225 9/31e : "- - - yet they (the Christians*)were commanded to worship but One God - - -". Muhammad never understood the Christian thinking. According to Christians there is only one god. Then there is a figure - a helper or something (the son, Jesus) - who in reality gets his light and his power from God/Yahweh. And then there is something more diffuse and seldom seen; The messenger boy or something named the Holy Spirit (sometimes wrongly claimed to be the arch angel Gabriel by Muslims who have never read the Bible, or who have read it with a closed mind). To use a picture: There is one sun. Then there is a moon which gets its light from the sun. And there is the seldom seen satellite somewhere around. But only one sun. And that is the complete "pantheon". To mix Mary into the Trinity (like Muhammad does at least one place in the Quran) just is one more proof for that no god made the Quran, and for that Muhammad did not understand the trinity. Mary and the other saints (only for the Catholics, and not for all of them) are not divine. In Islam some good Muslims end in the higher heavens closer to Allah. In the same way Catholics believe that some really good Christians end up closer to God in Heaven - though figuratively. And just like Muhammad claimed he can interfere for whom he like on the Last Day, Catholics believe that as these normal, but good, humans called saint can interfere with God on our behalf, as they are closer to him. But as this is not a part of the Bible, the Protestants - and Muslims - may be right: May be there are no saints.

226 9/31f: "- - - there is no god but He (here indicated to be Allah*)". See 2/255a and 2/272b above.

227 9/31g: "- - - Praise and glory to Him (Allah*)". Please read 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it.

228 9/31h: "- - - (far is He (Allah*)) from having the partners they associate with him". This is a clear Arabism, as the only place in all the world they associated other deities with Allah, was in Arabia. And to be more exact, they did not associate them with Allah, but with al-Lah - the pagan old Arab main god witch Muhammad made to the only god and renamed Allah. No place else in the world did Allah have "partners". All other places they instead had another or other god(s). But Muhammad liked to pretend towards his followers - and perhaps also towards others - that Allah was in the background other places, too, only that the people there had chosen other gods. Perhaps he thought it gave weight to his own god Allah.

229 9/32a: “Fain would they (Christians*) extinguish Allah’s Light with their mouths - - -”. Bad and detestable people. But what light is there from a claimed holy book not from a god and full of mistakes?

230 9/32b: "- - - Allah will not allow but that His Light should be perfected". This he only can decide if he exists. And as for light, see 9/32a just above.

231 9/32c: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many distance inducing names for non-Muslims.

**232 9/33a: “It is He (Allah*) Who hath sent his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -“. That is one of the really big questions: Was he really sent? There are too many indications for that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god – actually it is 100% sure that no such god would make that many mistakes, contradictions, etc. And if he all the same is sent, the some 22-24 surahs from Medina makes it as 100% sure that he was not sent by a good or benevolent god – the religion as it is painted especially in that part the Quran is by far too inhuman, immoral, and diabolic for that. In case he was sent, the surahs from Medina prove he in case was sent by some dark forces. May be by the Devil pretending to be Gabriel - Muhammad would have no chance to see the difference. Another alternative that it is sent by a sick brain – f. ex. TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) like parts of modern medical science believe? Or perhaps just by a cold brain wanting power - f.x. Muhammad himself?

233 9/33b: "- - - his (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A version of Muhammad's main mantra gluing himself to Allah and to his platform of power - Allah".

234 9/33c: "- - - his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

235 9/33d: "- - - his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

236 9/33e: "It is He (Allah*) Who hath sent his Messenger (Muhammad*) with Guidance - - -". A teaching like Muhammad's with that many mistakes, etc. - just read the Quran - is not much of guidance. No preacher preaching such tales is from a god.

237 9/33f: "- - - Guidance - - -". See 2/2b above.

238 9/33g: (Islam is*) “the Religion of the Truth, - - -”. For comments, see 9/29h, 13/1g, and 40/75 below.

239 9/33h: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

240 9/33i: “It is He (Allah*) Who hath sent his Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of the Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest it”. With plain words: Accept it whether you like it or not – as there is “no Compulsion in Religion.” The goal is worldwide total domination. This verse contradicts (and abrogates) at least these verses (here are 88 out of the 124 Muslim scholars say are abrogated by 9/5): 2/109, 2/190, 2/256, 2/272, 3/20, 4/62, 4/81, 4/90, 5/3, 5/28, 5/48, 5/99, 6/60, 6/66, 6/70, 6/104, 6/107, 6/112, 6/158, 7/87, 7/188, 7/193, 7/199, 8/61, 9/68, 10/41, 10/99, 10/102, 10/108, 11/12, 11/121, 13/40, 15/3, 15/94, 16/35, 16/82, 16/125, 16/126, 16/127, 17/54, 18/29, 18/56, 19/39, 20/130, 21/107, 21/112, 22/49, 22/68, 23/54, 23/96, 24/54, 26/216, 27/92, 28/50, 28/55, 29/18, 29/46, 32/30, 34/25, 34/28, 35/23, 35/24a, 36/17, 39/41, 41/34, 42/6, 42/15, 42/48, 43/83, 43/89, 44/59, 45/14, 46/9, 46/135a, 46/135b, 46/135b, 50/39, 50/45, 51/50-51, 51/54, 52/45, 52/47, 53/29, 67/26, 73/10, 73/11, 79/45, 86/17, 88/22, 109/6. They are all quoted under 9/5. (At least 91 contradictions).

###241 9/33j: "- - - to proclaim it (Islam*) over all religion - - -". This is a sentence to beware of, because this is the official goal for Islam even today and for all foreseeable future: Dominate and suppress all others.

242 9/34a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims.

243 9/34b: (A9/50 – in the English 2008 edition A9/51): “There are indeed many among the priests and anchorites, who in falsehood devour the substance of men - - -.” This is directed towards the rich parts of the Mosaic and the Christian religious establishment. But is it in reality addressed to everyone who makes much money without giving to “just causes”? Islam still debates this after 1400 years - - - because it is not clear in the text. And actually this is an at least semi-central point in a society and for religious people – so much so, that it should not have been left standing like an open question. Had an omniscient god really used this kind of unclear speech on this topic?

244 9/34c: "- - - the Way of Allah - - -". Does the Quran represent the way of Allah, when all the mistakes, etc. in it proves it is not from a god?

245 9/34d: "And there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the Way of Allah - - -". You should spend at least some of your money in ways advice by the Quran - for the poor, for spreading Islam, for paying for the costs of war, etc.

246 9/34e: "And there are those who bury silver and gold and spend it not in the Way of Allah: announce unto them a most grievous penalty - - -". If you are well off and do not spend at least a reasonable part of your wealth for religiously accepted purposes - which includes waging war on non-Muslims - you will be strongly punished. A nice rule for a warlord who needed to finance wars and raids.

247 9/34f: "- - - grievous penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

248 9/35a: "On the Day - - -". Here the Day of Doom.

249 9/35b: This verse is not from the Bible.

250 9/36a: "The number of months in the sight of Allah is twelve (in a year) - so ordained by Him the day He created the heavens and the earth - - -". This is worth some remarks:

1. The Muslim months follow the moon, not the real year like in most of the world. But as such a month is shorter than 1/12 of a year, the Muslim year ends up being some 354 days only.

2. This means that the Muslim year is an artificial construction - perhaps constructed by such a simple thing as Muhammad longing for his wives (he once quarreled with them, and swore he would not return to them until a month had passed. He returned after 29 days, claiming a month was 29 days). Or maybe he adopted the old pagan Arab system with that short months, (but they added extra months when needed to synchronize their years with the real years - something Muhammad omitted).

3. The result is that the Muslim year as said is an artificial one, being some 11 days shorter than the natural year. A natural year is the time it takes Earth to go around the sun exactly one time.

4. The result is that the Muslim year - and all religious holidays - wanders along the real year during ca. 33 natural years, and that 100 natural years = ca. 103 Muslim years. But as Allah according to Islam ordained this the day he created the heavens (plural and wrong) and the Earth, there is more to the story:

5. When the Earth was young, the day was much shorter - may be as short as 12 hours. Are 28-29 days today the same as 28-29 days when Allah ordained this?

6. When the moon was young, it was much closed to Earth - perhaps as close as 15ooo km, and circumnavigated Earth a 2 -3 times a day of our days (you have to be ca. 36ooo km up to need one day). This means that at that time 12 months were 5-6 of our days or less. If Allah ordained a year to be 5-6 days - or perhaps a dozen days as the days of that day were much shorter - can it then be correct that it now is some 60-70 times longer?

7. The days are still slowly becoming longer (the reason is that Earth transfers momentum to the moon, and consequently little by little rotates more slowly). This means that in the far future a moon month will be longer than a calendar month. Will a year still be 12 months?

8. After enough years the rotation of the Earth has slowed so much that one day corresponds to the time it takes the moon to circumnavigate the Earth. (It is likely the process will stop there, for from then on Earth will not transfer more momentum to the moon). That means that the moon seems to stand still at one place over the Earth all the time - f.x. over Sumatra - and there will be no months any more. How long is the year then?

251 9/36b: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

252 9/36c: "- - - of them (the months*) four are sacred". Months numbers 1, 7, 11, 12, are sacred in Islam - f.x. is fighting prohibited (if it is not forced on you) - though the Muslims broke the rule and Allah said it was ok - according to Muhammad. Like most old traditions in Islam, this is taken over from the old Arab pagan religion and the old Arab pagan traditions (few traditions and rules from far away from Arabia - curious for a world religion and a world god. Also curious is that the old pagan Arabs used just the traditions and rites Allah likes).

253 9/36d: "- - - of them (the months*) four are sacred". Months numbers 1, 7, 11, 12, are sacred in Islam - f.x. is fighting prohibited (if it is not forced on you). One of the many Arabisms in Islam.

254 9/36e: “- - - fight the Pagans all together - - -". Not from the Bible, not to mention from NT. The Quran and especially NT are exactly opposite each other here.

255 9/36f: “- - - fight the Pagans all together as they fight you all together - - -.” An order and an incitement too god to overlook – at this time (631 AD) Muhammad finally had got the upper hand, and from now on and for centuries to come, most wars the Muslims fought, were wars of aggression and wars of looting and plunder and enslavement + expansion and enlargement of power and of the religion.

256 9/36g: "But know that Allah is with those who restrain themselves". Please read the history - the real one - about Muhammad and about Islam. Did any of them live up to this?

257 9/37a: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

258 9/37b: "Verily the transposing (of a prohibited (f.x. to fight*) month) is an addition to Unbelief". The Arabs had a month calendar of 12 moon months. To make it follow the natural year they sometimes added a month (normally in year number 3, 5 and 8 in an 8-year cycle). These additions moved the holy months in which it among other things was prohibited to fight. But Allah forbade such additions, according to Muhammad.

259 9/37c: Neither holy months or when to insert extra months - or to forbid such insertion - is from the Bible. Holy months and inserting of "leap months" are Arabisms.

260 9/37d: (YA1295): The old Arabs used to add an extra month some years, as mentioned (9/36a). The norm was the 3., 6. and 8. year in an 8 year cycle, but this was sometimes changed - used and disused - by the rulers for political, military or other purposes.

261 9/37e: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

262 9/37f: "But Allah guideth not those who reject Faith". But as the Quran is not from a god - too much is wrong - - does he guide Muslims? It has never been proved.

263 9/37g: "- - - Faith". = Islam.

264 9/38a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims.

265 9/38b: “O ye who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the Cause of Allah (= to go to war*), ye cling heavily to the earth. Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter?” A very rhetoric question it is very difficult for a really pious Muslim not to answer “no” to. And also a question which tells a lot about Islam.

265a 9/38ba: “O ye who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the Cause of Allah (= to go to war*), ye cling heavily to the earth. Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter?” Incompatible to the Bible, and especially to NT. One of the many 100% proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of prophets - in addition to that Muhammad with his inability to make prophesies, was no real prophet at all.

266 9/38c: "But little is the comfort in this life, as compared with the hereafter (the claimed next life)". Often claimed, never proved. But a cheap way for Muhammad to pay his warriors.

###267 NB: 9/38d: In connection to verse 9/38 we quote from comment YA1299: "When a call (for war*) is made on behalf of a great cause (Islam*), the fortunate ones are those who have the privilege of responding to the call. The unfortunate ones are those who are so engrossed in their parochial affairs that they turn a deaf ear to the appeal. They are suffering from a spiritual disease". These comments are from our times, so you see that even now Muslim scholars mean that if you do not want to go to war whenever the religion calls, you are mentally ill. Further comments necessary?

And YA1300: "The choice is between two courses: will you choose a noble adventure (war*) and the glorious privilege of following your spiritual leader (to war), or grovel in the earth for some small worldly gain or for fear of worldly loss (f.x. your life or health*)?" "The Religion of Peace" anno nowadays.

268 9/38e: There is nothing like this in the Bible - not even in the OT (not to mention NT). Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

###269 9/39a: “Unless ye (Muslims*) go forth (in war/battle*), He (Allah*) will punish you with a grievous penalty (normally in the Quran a synonym for Hell*) - - -”. An order not possible to misunderstand for a pious - or fanatic - Muslim.

Yes, a religion built on peace, goodness and heavenly ethics.

This is the order also today - see 9/38d.

This verse tells horribly much about Islam as it is thought in the Quran.

270 9/39b: "- - - a grievous penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

271 9/39c: "- - - put others in your (not good enough Muslims'*) place - - -". This is a threat you meet some places in the Quran; if you are not good enough Muslims, Allah may kill you all and let other people take over your positions and places to live. The Quran even claims that the ruins scattered here and there in and around Arabia are results of such punishments from Allah (science tells there are a number of other and more likely explanations) In Pakistan a few years ago (2008?) in connection with the question of restoring some old ruins and keep them as national treasures, there came serious propositions for instead just to put up placards with warnings that this was what Allah did to not pious people. No comments.

272 9/39d: "For Allah hath power over all things". Often claimed, never proved. Reality or boasting?

273 9/39e: There is nothing like this in the Bible - not even in the OT (not to mention NT). Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

274 9/40a: “If ye help not (your Leader (then Muhammad - today any religious leader?*)), (it is no matter (for Allah helps*)).” This is said partly on a special background, but like so many places in the Quran, it may mean all Muslims at any time. Help your leaders in war and atrocities – just like what Muhammad needed help for often.

275 9/40b: "- - - when the Unbelievers drove him (Muhammad*) out - - -". Muhammad had to flee from Mecca in 622 AD.

276 9/40c: "- - - when the Unbelievers drove him (Muhammad*) out (from Mecca*) - - -". A historical anomaly.

277 9/40d: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". Normally this is one of Muhammad’s distance provoking names for non-Muslims, but here is specially meant the non-Muslims in Mecca who drove him away from town.

278 9/40e: "- - - he (Muhammad*) had no more than one Companion - - - etc. - - -". This refers to Muhammad's flight from Mecca to Medina together with Abu Bakr. They arrived in June 622 AD.

279 9/40f: "- - - in the Cave - - -". During the flight from Mecca to Medina, Muhammad spent one night in a cave.

280 9/40g: "- - - (Allah*) strengthened him (Muhammad*) with forces which ye (humans*) saw not (= angels*) - - -". Often claimed - especially in connection with battles - but never proved.

281 9/40h: "- - - Allah is Exalted in might - - -". Often claimed, never proved.

282 9/40i: "- - - Allah is - - - Wise". Not if the Quran represents his wisdom.

283 9/40j: There is nothing like this in the Bible - not even in the OT (not to mention NT). Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

284 9/41a: “Go ye forth (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle (= fight*), with your goods and your person (money and life*), in the Cause of Allah. That is best for you, if you but knew”. Any comment necessary? The benevolent "Religion of Peace"?

285 9/41b: "That (to go to war*) is best for you - - -". See 9/41a just above.

286 9/41c: There is nothing like this in the Bible - not even in the OT (not to mention NT). Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

287 9/42a: “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed you (Muhammad*) - - -". An indirect, but clear confirming of the fact that many of Muhammad's warriors followed him for the loot, etc. he promised - a fact Muslims deny.

288 9/42b: “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed you – (but it was not, and they did not) - - -.” You surely are of better quality?! (This verse refers to the military expedition to Tabuk).

289 9/42c: "- - - Allah doth know that they (lukewarm Muslims*) are certainly lying". Allah knows everything - do not try to cheat.

290 9/42d: There is nothing like this in the Bible - not even in the OT (not to mention NT). Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

291 9/43: This verse is a bit unclear - the Quran often is unclear - but may be referring to an episode after the military expedition to Tabuk, when the ones who had stayed at home, gave different excuses for why they had not gone on the expedition - some true and some not true. Muslim scholars believe this in reality is Allah excusing Muhammad for having accepted the excuses. It must be added that a very few who told the truth received a psychologically terrible treatment for a couple of months.

**292 9/44a: “Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day ask for no exemption from striving with their goods and persons (= waging war*)”.

If you are a real Muslim, you do not refrain from going to war.

**293 9/44b: “Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day ask for no exemption from striving with their goods and persons (= waging war*)”. Even if you omit the fact that the Bible is about Yahweh, not about Allah, this is in strong contradiction to especially NT. Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

294 9/44c: "- - - the Last Day - - -". The Day of Doom - - -".

295 9/44d: "- - - striving with their goods and persons". This is Quran-speak for using ones wealth and risking one’s life in war for Allah - or if Allah does not exist, at least for Muhammad.

296 9/44e: “And Allah knoweth well those (the Muslims going to war for Allah/Muhammad*) who do their duty”. It is not possible to deny - like most Muslims and many politically correct others try to do today - that war (against “unbelievers”) is a duty for Muslims. It is impossible to say it more directly than the Quran does here. And also that Allah knows the ones who goes to war - and the ones who do not. Ominous for the ones who do not. Also see 2/233h above. "The Religion of Peace"?

297 9/44f: “And Allah knoweth well those (the Muslims going to war for Allah/Muhammad*) who do their duty”. Strictly against especially NT - Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Believe it if you are able to.

##298 9/45a: “Only those ask thee (Muhammad*) for exemption (from doing battle*) who believe not in Allah and the Last day”. Terrorists and fanatical mullahs/imams are right and do right according to the Quran, because the Quran is pretty clear on what it means. And the ones only claiming there are verses which can be disused by terrorists to defend their activity are pretty naive and without knowledge about the book. "The Religion of Peace"? This claim is an insult to anyone who has read the surahs from Medina with an open mind.

299 9/45b: “Only those ask thee (Muhammad*) for exemption (from doing battle*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

300 9/45c: “Only those ask thee (Muhammad*) for exemption (from doing battle*) - - -". 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.

301 9/45d: As for predestination contra free will for man, also see 3/154, 6/149a, and 7/34a above, and 14/22b below.

302 9/46a: “If they (the ones reluctant to go to war*) had intended to come out (to the battlefield*), they should certainly have made some preparations therefore - - -". The ones not going on the war expedition to Hunayn. A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

303 9/46b: “If they (the ones reluctant to go to war*) had intended to come out (to the battlefield*), they should certainly have made some preparations therefore; but Allah was averse to their being sent forth, so he made them lag behind - - -”. Pep talk about the ones not wanting to go to war ‘do not mind them - they are bad quality Allah did not want’ - no reason to lose your nerve. But if it was Allah who made them lag behind, why then punishment of men for it?

304 9/46c: "- - - He (Allah*) made them (some Muslims*) lag behind (and do not go to war) - - -". Allah made them lag behind, but they were punishing in many ways anyhow. There especially is one story in Hadiths about psychological cruelty and punishment which is worthy the brainwashed and brainwashing Soviet Union of Stalin.

305 9/47a: "- - - they (the ones not wanting war*) would not have added to your (strength) but only (made for) disorder - - -". Pep-talk to the warriors; you did right to come along, the others were just lousy quality.

306 9/47b: "- - - in your midst - - -". This is what Muslim scholars guess the Arab word "khilal" means here - but it has more meanings. Clear language in the Quran?

307 9/47c: “But Allah knoweth well those who do wrong (= those not wanting to go to war*)”. The terrorists are right: It is not the terrorists who do wrong, it is the ones reluctant to murder and kill and fight. Really a religion for peace and goodness run by a benevolent god. The sentence also is a warning: Go to war, or else - - -!

308 9/47d: "- - - wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

309 9/47e: This verse mainly is a pep-talk to the warriors about the bad quality of the ones who did not want to go to war. Strongly contradicted by the Bible, and especially by NT. Jesus and Muhammad belonging to the same line of prophets? Impossible is the only possible word, because we do not know a stronger one. 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.

310 9/48a: "Indeed they - - - upset matters for thee (Muhammad*), until - - - the Decree of Allah (the order to go to war*) became manifest - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/14d above.

311 9/48b: "Indeed they - - - upset matters for thee (Muhammad*), until - - - the Decree of Allah (the order to go to war*) became manifest - - -". See 9/45c above.

312 9/48c: “- - - until the Truth (the Quran*) arrived, - - -”. With that many untrue facts, mistaken grammar, contradictions, and perhaps mistakes in the religious statements (why should they be exceptions?), the Quran at best is partly true. Also see 13/1

313 9/48d: "- - - the Truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

314 9/48e: “- - - the Decree of Allah became manifest - - -“. The “decrees from Allah” – the Quran - contains so many mistakes, etc., that they are not from an omniscient god. That is: Either Allah is not omniscient or it is not from Allah. Something is seriously wrong.

315 9/48f: "- - - manifest - - -". See 2/2b above.

316 9/49a: "Among them (men not wanting to go to war*) is many a man who says (to Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

317 9/49b: "Among them (men not wanting to go to war*) is many a man who says (to Muhammad*): 'Grant me exemption - - -". See 9/45c above.

318 9/49c: “(Many say*) ‘Grant me exception (from going to war*) and draw me not into trial’. Have they not fallen into trial already?” The Muslims not wanting war are already judged and doomed.

319 9/49d: "- - - trial - - -". Why does an omniscient, predestinating good need to put his people through trials?

320 9/49e: (YA1312): “- - - draw me (a man*) not into trial (fitnah”*) - - -“. But the Arab word “fitnah” has many meanings - see 6/23b above. Which gives many possible variants of the meaning. And these variants inevitably also are in the Arab text, as the relevant word(s) there has/have more than one meaning. Allah (?) really uses a clear language.

321 9/49f: "Have they (the ones not wanting to go to war*) not fallen into trial already?" Indication: They have been tried by the order to go to war, and found that they are proved to be "too light" and wanting in the eyes of Muhammad and Allah by asking exemption.

322 9/49g: "And indeed Hell surrounded the Unbelievers (on all sides)". See 3/77b above.

323 9/49h: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

324 9/49i: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". Any non-Muslims - one of Muhammad's many negative names for them.

325 9/50a: "- - - if a misfortune befalls thee (Muhammad/Muslims*), they say - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

326 9/50a: "- - - if a misfortune befalls thee (Muhammad/Muslims*), they say, 'We took - - - (etc.*)". See 9/45c above.

***327 9/51a: “Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us - - -”. Allah decides everything. The predestination - but where then is the claimed free will of man which justifies Allah's punishments for sins? - not even Islam is able to explain that. Islam even admits it is not possible to explain it, but adds lamely that it all the same must be true, because Allah says so in the Quran(!!) (A6/141 - 6/143 in English 2008 edition). The ultimate defeat for the brain vs. blind belief.

And where is the effect of prayers in Islam, if Allah already has predestined what is going to happen, like the Quran tells he always do?

328 9/51b: “Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us - - -”. Predestination: To do battle is not more deadly than sleeping in your bed, as Allah already has decided your hour of death. Naïve and uneducated people and religious fanatics may really believe this - in those cases it is one terrific piece of pep talk for not being afraid of doing battle.

329 9/51c: “Nothing can happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us - - -”. Well, Islam tells it is the free will of man that brings on bad incidents and life. This verse contradicts that, to say the least of it. So just go safely to war.

A warrior or terrorist can only win - riches and glory or Paradise. (Mutilation, becoming a cripple etc. is never mentioned).

Well, as said he may become a cripple f.x. and live a long life in misery - but that is never mentioned. Also his family may live in misery - also never mentioned.

Also the Quran NEVER mentions that the non-Muslims are humans and what the devastation of their culture and lives means to them - it is of absolutely no consequence and without the slightest interest. The destruction of Persia - and for that case the East Roman culture or the terror in Pakistan/India and Africa - represented long series of terrible dramas and catastrophes for people and culture and science, but the only things which counted - and still counts - for Islam, was a lot of spoils of war - and power and riches for their leaders, and like it or not: Frequently forcing people to become Muslims - frequently by weapons, and always using social and other kinds of pressure - and by extra tax (jizya), often high. Even today we have never met a Muslim able to see this side of their wars or murders or suppression, not to mention what rape and enslavement meant to millions of victims - never to this day, not one single time have we heard a Muslim regret this. Only in the western culture the ability to see the fate of the victims is widespread - a military weak spot, but one of the points which perhaps make the western culture better than some others of the big ones. (To say anything good about the West is politically incorrect, but we do not care for what is politically correct - we are able to think ourselves, and what counts is what is correct, not what is politically correct).

***329a 9/51ca: “Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us - - -”. Allah decides everything. The predestination - - - and totally incompatible with the Bible, even though Yahweh sometimes directs the future.

330 9/51d: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

331 9/51e: This verse is not from the Bible (actually little in the Quran is from the Bible itself). Predestination in the meaning of what you find in the Quran, does not exist in the Bible - one of the very solid proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - the teachings are far too different also on the fundamental points.

332 9/52a: “Can you see for us (Muslims*) (any fate) other than the two glorious things – (martyrdom or victory)?” Definitely yes: We can see the war cripple. We can see the families destroyed because the husband/father is dead – or a cripple. We can on the other hand see men building their country instead of destroying neighboring countries - or at least leaving their neighbors in peace, so that the neighbors can build their countries. And we are able to see the price of war: Brutalized humans and destruction – a war never builds anything, it destroys. And we also can see the second possibility the Quran never mentions, except as minor set-backs: Defeat. It may give some of the victors a chance to steal and suppress and become rich – but for a terrible price for others. But this price the Quran never mentions and never cares about - it is as said paid by others.

***Islam seems to represent such a backward culture, that its members were and to a large degree are unable to see - or care for - what catastrophes and destroyed lives they inflict on others, as long as they themselves become rich and perhaps powerful. No price is too high for a good life - - - as long as others have to pay for it.

Well, to inflict the religion on others also counts and counted for some of them. A religion built on a book so full of mistakes, contradictions and other errors, which it is not from any god.

333 9/52b: “Can you see for us (Muslims*) (any fate) other than the two glorious things – (martyrdom or victory)?” A glorification of war which is an absolute contradiction to the Bible, and with a nonexistent much stronger for comparison to NT. One more of the really strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are different gods - if any of them exists, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not from the same line of prophets (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he was unable to make prophesies.

334 9/52c: "But we (Muslims*) can expect for you (non-Muslims*) either that Allah will send his punishment from Himself, or by our hands". The last part of the sentence means that when Muslims are fighting or in other ways are being adverse to non-Muslims, they are doing the work of Allah - punishing them for him. Comments?

335 9/53: "Spend (for the Cause) willingly or unwillingly - - -". There is nothing similar in the Bible. Not the same god - or prophet (or "prophet") - speaking.

336 9/53-54: May be Allah did not accept their (more or less hypocrites*) contributions, but the hypocrite had to be a bit notorious for that Muslims should not accept it.

337 9/54a: "The only reason for their (bad Muslims at the time of Muhammad*) contributions are not accepted are - - - that they come to prayer without earnestness - - - (etc*)". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

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

338 9/54b: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's main mantra for gluing himself to his god and his platform of power".

339 9/54c: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". There is no god behind a "messenger" preaching a "message" so full of mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, etc, like Muhammad.

340 9/54d: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

341 9/55a: "- - - in reality Allah's Plan is to punish them (the rich non-Muslims) - - - and that their souls may perish - - -". A standard "explanation" of how it could be that many non-Muslims had a better life than Muslims.

342 9/55b: "- - - reality - - -". See 2/2a at least twice.

343 9/56a: "They (hypocrite contemporaries of Muhammad*) swear by Allah - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

344 9/56b: "They (hypocrite contemporaries of Muhammad*) swear by Allah that they are indeed of you, but - - -". An impossibility even for a god to know long before. See 9/45c above.

345 9/56-57: Not everybody wanted to go to war - a pep-talk against these ones.

346 9/58a: "- - - men who slander thee (Muhammad*) in the matter of (the distribution) of the alms - - -". Muhammad often used the riches of Islam as "gifts"/bribes to make unsure persons stay Muslims or become Muslims. Then it was not always plenty for the needy - nor always leaving a "fair" share of the booty to the real warriors. Both produced dissatisfaction.

347 9/58b: "- - - men who slander thee (Muhammad*) in the matter of (the distribution) of the alms - - -". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

348 9/58c: "- - - men who slander thee(Muhammad*) in the matter of (the distribution) of the alms - - -". An impossibility even for a god to know long before. See 9/45c above.

349 9/59a: "If they (Muslims*) has been content with what Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) gave them". It was Muhammad who split the loot, but to reduce his blame and to put weight behind his claim, he adds Allah. "Accept the authorities and be content with what they/Muhammad decide!" This is any dictator's point of view - be satisfied with what I decide and what I do.

350 9/59b: "- - - Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". A standard version of the mantra to keep Muhammad glued to Allah and to his platform of power; Allah.

351 9/59c: "- - - Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". No god would give his prophet so much wrong knowledge, contradictions, etc.

352 9/59d: “- - - His (Allah's) 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 7/188 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, 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"?)

If the Quran simply belongs among the apocryphal books, many things are easy to understand, and it at least belongs in that line and tradition, even if it is further "out" than most of the others. Muhammad also fits the picture of the leader of an apocryphal sect, admittedly more immoral and bloody than most of the others.

Also see 30/40h below.

353 9/59e: "Sufficient unto us is Allah!" Only if he exists and is a major god.

354 9/59f: "Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) will soon give us of His bounty - - -". See 58 and 59a above.

355 9/59g: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/59b+c above.

356 9/59h: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a above.

357 9/59i: "- - - to Allah do we turn our (Muslims') hopes!" It has never to our knowledge been showed that such hopes have been fulfilled to a larger degree than what other causes than a god may explain.

358 9/59j: "(That would have been the right course)". To accept Muhammad's acts/words without comments or opposition - any dictator's dream.

359 9/59k: "- - - right - - -". See 2/2b above.

###360 9/60a: "Alms are for(:*)"

- the poor and the needy,

- and (for*) those employed to administer the (funds);

- for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to Truth (= new Muslims*)) (many new Muslims were not very strong in the belief, and besides many did not enter Islam because of the religion, but to be able to gain/rob riches, slaves and women. Hadiths tells about "gifts" to tribal chiefs of up to a hundred camels - stolen/robbed from non-Muslims - given to make those chiefs wanting to continue to follow Muhammad, and also tell about episodes where his older followers grumbled because new follower got too much of the spoils and they themselves too little, and where Muhammad explained that it was wise to give weak believers much to make them continue in the religion*);

- for those in bondage (NB: Muslim such*) and in debt;

- in the cause of Allah (= for spreading Islam - without or with use of arms. According to our sources a lot was used for this - military actions cost money. There are few other religions where gifts for financing of raids for stealing/robbing, etc., and for war - normally of aggression - is reckoned to be alms);

and for the wayfarer (to a large degree pilgrims to Mecca*): 

(thus is it) ordained by Allah - - -". 

(For the sake of better overview, we here have use another lay-out than the Yusuf Ali.)

These rules also were for the use of the zakat - the so-called "poor-tax" - a tax every Muslim who was/is not too poor had/has to pay to the rulers. Mainly it is 2.5% of what you own - not of your income, but of what you own - but up to 10%).

361 9/60b: “- - - reconciled (to Truth) - - -”. See 9/48c, 13/1g and many others - though in just this case it is likely to be meant "reconciled to Islam".

362 9/60c: "- - - (the Truth) - - -". See 2/2b above - though in just this case it is likely it is meant Islam.

363 9/60d: "- - - in the cause of Allah - - -". = to defend or promote Islam, included to wage war. Quite a lot of this "budget" was used for weapons and other war equipment, and for waging war.

364 9/60e: "- - - Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom". Perhaps true - but in that case someone else made the Quran.

365 9/61a: "Among them (non-Muslims*) are men who molest the Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". This may refer to an episode where some put intestines from an animal on Muhammad's back when he was praying, and also to verbal disagreement. But in any case it is a historical anomaly - see 4/13d above.

366 9/61b: "Among them (non-Muslims*) are men who molest the Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/61a just above. This also is one of the things it would be impossible for even a god to know for sure eons earlier if man has free will. Then who made the Quran and/or how reliable is it? Also see 9/45c above.

367 9/61c: “- - - 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.

Muhammad also fits the picture of the leader of an apocryphal sect, admittedly more immoral and bloody than most of the others.

Also see 30/40h below.

368 9/61d: "He (Muhammad*) is all ear". Muhammad told known stories - stories he (and everyone else) had heard - he just twisted them to make them fir his preaching. There also was a rumor telling that Muhammad was a bit naive and believed most of what he was told.

369 9/61e: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

370 9/61f: "(Muhammad*) is a Mercy to those of you who believe (Muslims*)". Muhammad a mercy? - as we have said before: When there is a discrepancy between reality and glorifying words or propaganda, we always believe in reality.

371 9/61g: "- - - the Prophet (Muhammad*)- - -". See 9/61a above.

372 9/61h: "- - - grievous penalty". See 3/77b above.

373 9/62a: "- - - it is more fitting if they (people*) should please Allah and his Messenger, if they are Believers". A nice piece of divine declaration for any dictator.

374 9/62b: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*)- - -". See 9/59b+c above.

375 9/62c: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

376 9/62d: "- - - Believers". = Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran.

377 9/63a "Know they (non-Muslims*) that for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), is the Fire of Hell - - -". Nobody knows this. Most Muslims believe it, but no-one knows it, as there only is the word of a man with very special moral and ethics for it. But also see 9/62a above.

378 9/63b: "- - - for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), is the Fire of Hell - - -". As for all practical purposes here on Earth this meant opposition to Muhammad, this sentence in reality means: "- - - for those who oppose Muhammad, is the Fire of Hell". A strong argument for a warlord. Also see 3/77b and 9/62a above.

379 9/63c: "- - - for those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

380 9/63d: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/59b+c above.

381 9/63e: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/88b, 16/44d and 63/5a below.

382 9/64a: "- - - But verily Allah will bring to light all that ye (bad people*) fear (should be revealed)". For one thing we here are back to the old fact that this cannot happen unless Allah really exists. And for another: In all history we have read or heard about not one single case where Allah has done this.

383 9/64b: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

384 9/64c: "- - - verily, Allah will bring to light - - -". Allah or something/somebody else?

385 9/65a: "If thou (Muhammad*) dost question them (hypocrites*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

386 9/65b: "If thou (Muhammad*) dost question them (hypocrites*), they declare (with emphasis: 'We were only talking idly and in play'". Impossible even for a god to know for sure eons earlier. See 9/45c above.

387 9/65c: "- - - Allah - - - and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his god and platform of power.

388 9/65d: "- - - Allah - - - and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No person who tells so much which is wrong, so many contradictions, etc., is sent by a god.

389 9/65e: “- - - His (Allah’s*) Signs - - -“. There is not one “sign” in the Quran that clearly is from Allah. See 2/39b and 2/99 above.

390 9/65f: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/88b, 16/44d and 63/5a below.

391 9/66a: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam.

392 9/66b: “If We (Allah*) pardons some of you (apostates from Islam*) - - -.” To leave Islam is one of the deadly sins and to be pardoned without regretting deeply is impossible. Contradicted by a number of the verses under 2/256 - see this. More about this verse under verse 9/5 in the chapter: Abrogations in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran".

(Contradicts many verses – at least 10 contradictions).

9/393 9/67a: "The Hypocrites - - - enjoin evil, and forbid what is just, and are close with their hands. They have forgotten Allah, so He hath forgotten them. Verily the Hypocrites are rebellious and perverse". A pep-talk where Muhammad tells his followers how bad people they are who do not believe in him. Good psychology as long as the followers believe it - and people in religious fervor often believe their prophet or "prophet" no matter what is true and what is not. Also see 9/67b-through-f below.

394 9/67b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

395 9/67c: "- - - just - - -". See 9/67a just above.

396 9/67d: "- - - are close with their hands - - -". One of the many Arab expressions in the book of a claimed universal god. It means he/she/they give as little as possible, and covers also other subjects than money, etc. With another word: Tight-fisted, but not only with money, etc. - also f.x. with any kind of help and advice. A PS: The claim is not a little ironic when you know that none of the big help or relief NGOs were started or are run by Muslims (except of course specific Muslim ones). And also that at least in Scandinavia it has come to light that local Muslims give little or nothing to such organizations - except perhaps to the ones working specifically among Muslims or in Muslim areas.

397 9/67e: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

398 9/67f: “Verily the Hypocrites are rebellious and perverse.” Persons not really believing in Muhammad and his new religion are - have to be - bad and perverse. Not strange Muslims are reluctant to be integrated among such people.

399 9/67g: “Verily the Hypocrites are rebellious and perverse.” No doubt the Muslims are better – and definitely not perverse, not even when robbing or raping or suppressing or killing, for that is “good and lawful” according to the book. And perverse people are to be despised of course.

400 9/67h: "- - - rebellious - - -" - or at least negative to Muhammad's new religion.

401 9/67i: "- - - perverse - - -". This is one of the strong, but cheap bad words Muhammad rather often uses about non-Muslims. For persons believing it - and other such words - is true, it has a strong effect of inducing distance and distaste and stronger reactions - effect often wanted by leaders of religious, political and other organizations - especially among the more extreme ones. In aggressive ideologies it also makes it easier to make followers react violently and often with hate against others. E.g. Nazism, other strong fascistic organizations, extreme Muslims, extreme communism. etc.

402 9/68a: "Allah hat promised - - -". Of no consequence if he does not exist - or if he exists, but is no god. If he f.x. is a camouflaged member of the dark forces, some of his promises, f.x. about Hell, may be worth noticing.

403 9/68b: "- - - rejecters of Faith - - -". One of Muhammad's many distance and distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

404 9/68c: "- - - Faith - - -". = Islam - only Islam is faith according to the Quran.

405 9/68d: “- - - therein (Hell*) shall they (hypocrites and “infidels”*) dwell: sufficient is it for them - - -.” No, according to some verses in the Quran, they also deserve punishment by the Muslims of this world. Contradicted and abrogated by a number of the verses under 2/256 - see this. More about this verse under verse 9/5 in the chapter Abrogations in http://www.1000mistakes.com .

(Abrogated by several verses – at least 5 abrogations. Contradicts many verses – at least 10 contradictions.) Also see 3/77b above.

406 9/68e: "- - - for them (the ones not really believing in Muhammad and his Islam*) is the curse of Allah, and an enduring punishment". See 3/77b above.

407 9/68f: "- - - (Hells*) an enduring punishment - - -". Remember that according to the Quran (6/128c, 11/107b, 43/74d, 51,13c, 78/23) it after all may be for a limited time - at least for Muslims (after all not all Muslims are good enough Muslims to end in Paradise at once).

408 9/69: "As for the case of those before you: they were mightier than you in power, and more flourishing in wealth and children." In and around Arabia there were old ruins - and old tales about former people. Muhammad used to claim that they all were destroyed because they refused or sinned against Allah, and this even if they were stronger and richer than the ones he was preaching for (= an even stronger Allah). Science has other possible explanations for empty ruins and destruction of older tribes in a harsh land and with a warlike tradition and (un)culture.

409 9/70a: "People of Noah, and 'Ad, and Thamud; the People of Abraham, the men of Midian, and the Cities overthrown". 6 historical anomalies if we include the ones only mentioned in the Quran.

410 9/70b: Noah and Abraham are names from the Bible. Ad, Thamud and "the men of Midian" are names of tribes in Arab folklore (Median is likely to be the same area to which Moses fled after he killed a man in Egypt, according to the Bible, and is a part of Arabia (in the west), called Midian in the Bible).

411 9/70c: "- - - Abraham's people - - -". Here is a list of people and tribes who according to the Quran were destroyed because they did not accept Allah or sinned against him. But the possible sin and punishment of Abraham's people are not mentioned in the Quran. Some Muslim scholars tell it must be the Babylonians who were "Abraham's people" (Ur in Chaldea was not too far off) and the fall of the first Babylonian empire the punishment. But Abraham - if he is not fiction - lived around 1800 - 2000 BC. Babylon fell to Assyria around 1100 BC. The time simply is wrong by some 800 years (but then Islam too often does not care too much about the truth or not, as long as one can get a seemingly logical explanation which corresponds to the Quran, and which little educated and/or wishful believers may believe in - you meet this fact a little too often.)

In the Bible there is nothing about punishment of Abraham's people. It only says that his father left them and went north, heading for Canaan in the northwest, and brought his son Abram (later renamed by Yahweh to Abraham) and his grandson Lot along - which means that in the Bible there also is nothing about religious or any other quarrel between Abram and his father. Also the story about the pagan gods Abram destroyed and the religious quarrel he had with his people according to the Quran, is not from the Bible - the only perhaps reliable source for information about Abram/Abraham.

412 9/70d: “- - - the Cities overthrown.” In what we call the Middle East and further eastwards there were ruins from cities and towns and dwellings and tales about former people. Muhammad explained that each and every of them had been destroyed by Allah because they had sinned against him. Wrong – in an arid and warlike area there are so many reasons why even cities from the old can be empty, that Islam will have to prove that Allah’s wreath was the reason for even one of them. In this and many other cases it refers to Sodom and Gomorrah, though (even though no ruins identified as one of those towns are found).

413 9/70e: "- - - came their messengers - - -". The Quran claims all nations/groups/cultures all over the world and to all times have had messengers/prophets teaching Islam - Hadiths mention the number 124ooo prophets/messengers through the times. Except for the Jewish prophets - who did not teach about Allah, but about Yahweh - neither science nor Islam has found one single trace of even one of them. If not Islam brings solid proofs - but proofs, not loose claims - we judge that this just is a made up claim.

415 9/70g: "It is not Allah Who wrongs them (hypocrites*), but they wrong their own souls". How come when Allah decides absolutely everything according to many verses in the Quran?

416 9/71a: “The Believers - - -". = The Muslims.

417 9/71b: “The Believers, men and women, are protectors (Arab: wali*) of one another - - -.” But contradictions:

9/116: “Except for Him (Allah*) ye have no protector (Arab: wali*) nor helper.”

32/4: “- - - ye have none, besides Him (Allah*) to protect or intercede (for you) - - -.”

42/28: “And He (Allah*) is the Protector (Arab: wali*) - - -.“

(3 contradictions).

418 9/71c: "- - - just - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

419 9/71d: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

420 9/71e: "- - - obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his platform of power, his god.

421 9/71f: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No person preaching a lot of mistaken facts, contradictions, etc. ever was a messenger from an omniscient god.

422 9/71g: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d below.

423 9/71h: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5b below.

424 9/71i: "- - - Allah's*) mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

425 9/71j: "- - - Allah is Exalted in power - - -". Often claimed, never really proved. Boasting?

426 9/71k: "- - - Allah is - - - Wise". See 9/60c above.

427 9/72a: “Allah hath promised to Believers – men and women – Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of everlasting bliss - - -”. A paradise like the life of the rich men in this world – plus more water. And of course plus the presumed, but never proved Allah.

428 9/72b: "The Believers - - -". = The Muslims.

429 9/72c: "- - - Gardens under which rivers flow - - -" The most frequently used Arabism in the Quran. See 4/13d above. And also see 10/9f below.

430 9/72d: "- - - Gardens of everlasting bliss (Paradise*)". But 11/108c may indicate that the Quran's paradise is not forever. Muslim scholars claims that this must mean that the good Muslims there are transferred to an even better place - not too difficult - but there is not a whisper about such transfer or place in the Quran.

431 9/72e: "- - - the greatest bliss is the Good Pleasure of Allah - - -". Once more we are up against the fact that his cannot be true, unless Allah exists and is a god. There is no proof for any of those claims.

432 9/73a: “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 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, 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"?)

If the Quran simply belongs among the apocryphal books, many things are easy to understand, and it at least belongs in that line and tradition, even if it is further "out" than most of the others. Muhammad also fits the picture of the leader of an apocryphal sect, admittedly more immoral and bloody than most of the others.

Also see 30/40h below.

***433 9/73b: “Strive (fight*) hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites - - -.” Straight words for your money.

434 9/73c: “Strive (fight*) hard against the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites - - -”. There is nothing like this in the Bible. In OT there is fighting, but for the Jews' country, not for the religion, and NT hardly accepts armed conflicts at all. Yahweh and Allah the same god?

435 9/73d: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". One of Muhammad's many distaste and superiority inducing names for non-Muslims.

436 9/73e: "- - - be firm against them (non-Muslims and hypocrites*)". When the idol Muhammad should be firm against them, of course all other Muslims should be the same.

437 9/73f: "Their (non-Muslims and hypocrites*) abode is Hell - - -". See 3/77b above.

438 9/74a: "They (non-Muslims at the time of Muhammad*) swear that they said nothing (evil) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

439 9/74b: "They (non-Muslims at the time of Muhammad*) swear that they said nothing (evil) - - -". Impossible for Allah to know eons before if man has free will. See f.x. 9/45c above.

440 9/74c: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

441 9/74d: "- - - they (hypocrites*) uttered blasphemy (disbelief in Muhammad and the Quran*), and they did it after accepting Islam - - -". One of the greatest sins in Islam is for a Muslim to disbelieve in anything in the book, not to mention leaving the religion - there is in principle death penalty for leaving Islam, and this still is to a degree practiced some places.

442 9/74e: "- - - they (hypocrites*) uttered blasphemy (disbelief in Muhammad and the Quran*), and they did it after accepting Islam - - -". It is not possible to utter blasphemy by disbelieving in Allah or Muhammad, unless Allah really exists an in addition is a god (not f.x. something from the dark forces - Muhammad would not have a chance to see the difference f.x. between a dressed up devil and the angel Gabriel.

443 9/74f: "- - - they (some in Medina*) mediated a plot which they were unable to carry out - - -". This is said to refer to a plot planned by some ones in Medina when Muhammad returned from the military expedition to Tabuk in the autumn 630 AD.

444 9/74g: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue Muhammad to his god and his platform of power.

445 9/74h: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc.

446 9/74i: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

447 9/74j: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

449 9/74l: "- - - Allah will punish them (some non-Muslims*) - - -". Only if he exists, has the power to do so and thinks there is a reason to revenge an act against one who clearly is not the representative of any god - not one of any consequence at least.

450 9/74m: "- - - grievous penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

451 9/74n: "- - - they (some non-Muslims*) shall have none on earth to protect or help them". Well, there always is the question about f.x. Yahweh - a god the Quran admits exists, even though it wrongly mixes him with Allah. If he exists and is a god like described in the Quran (= the god borrowed from the Bible) and in the Bible, he is a powerful protector and helper.

452 9/75a: "Amongst them (some bad Muslims/hypocrites/non-Muslims*) are men who covenanted with Allah, that if He bestowed on them of Hic bounty - - -". They covenanted with the god that if he made them rich, they would be generous. Some covenance. Some god.

453 9/75b: "- - - a covenant with Allah - - -". Such a covenant demands that Allah exists, but it does not demand that he is a god, only that he is some sort of supernatural being - this even more so as the dark forces are unreliable and can promise anything without intending to keep it.

454 9/75c: "- - - a covenant with Allah - - -". Some Boers in South Africa once made a covenant with Yahweh: They promised to do so-and-so-and-so, and then Yahweh should do so-and-so. What they forgot about, was to make sure that Yahweh agreed to be part of the covenant. Is this the same kind of "covenant"? - there only are some words in the Quran indicating there may be, and the Quran has so many mistakes that it is too unreliable if there is no additional proof - especially as it is made by a man who even himself admitted he was unreliable, and a man who liked power and riches for more power - and women - and was not too squeamish about how to reach his goals.

455 9/75d: "- - - they (some good Muslims*) would give (largely) in charity - - -". This stressing of charity is one of the - too few - good sides of Islam. But the fact that charity also is for forwarding Islam also by means of armed strife and war, gives the point a not tasty second taste.

456 9/75e: "- - - when He (Allah*) did bestow of his bounty - - -". According to this verse in the Quran, Allah kept his part of such a covenant. So definitely different from NT. Jesus talked about religion, not about making economical deals.

457 9/75f: "- - - righteous". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

458 9/76a: "But when He (Allah*) did bestow of his bounty, they became covetous, and turned back (from their Covenant) - - -". Impossible to know for sure billions of years ahead (according to Islam, the Quran may have existed since before the creation of the Universe) even for a god, if man has free will. See 9/45c above.

459 9/76b: "- - - (- - - their (some bad people*) Covenant) - - -". See 9/75a above.

460 9/76c: "- - - He (Allah*) did bestow - - -". Allah? Or somebody/something else? Or their own initiative or work or thieving/robbing?

###461 9/77a: “- - - He (Allah*) hath put as a consequence hypocrisy into their hearts, (to last) till the Day (of Doom*)”. As you see also the hypocrites have no choice - they actually are made hypocrites by Allah, and he gives them no chance of changing their mind. But the good god all the same is going to punish them severely. Besides: Compare this with "the 11. hour" (Matt. 20/8-13) in NT - Yahweh and Allah the same god? With as fundamental differences in the religion as this, only one answer is possible. Also see 2/7c above.

462 9/77b: "- - - the Day, whereon they (the hypocrites*) shall meet Him (Allah*) - - -". = The Day of Doom.

463 9/77c: "- - - they (hypocrites*) broke their covenant with Allah - - -". The Quran here tells they had promised Allah something - but that is not a covenant. A covenant is an agreement which all implicated parts say they agree on. Allah in this case had said nothing. Thus they had made a promise, not a covenant. Also see 9/75c above.

464 9/78a: "Know they not that Allah doth know their secret (thoughts) and their secret counsels - - -". Here a warning - do not cheat, because Allah will know, but some places also a promise (true or not true is another question) - plus see 2/233h above.

465 9/78b: "Know they not that Allah doth know their secret (thoughts) and their secret counsels - - -". The answer simply is no. It is not possible to know something which is not proved - one can believe, even believe strongly, but it only is belief, not knowledge. (But remember that there exist at least two kinds of proofs in addition to the mathematical one; the inductive and the empirical ones - when you give f.x. empirical proofs for that something is wrong with the Quran, Muslims normally demands mathematical proofs, and not all questions fit the frame for mathematical proofs - - - whereas they themselves never prove anything at all - they just use claims and demands for that you shall prove it wrong. In such cases demand proofs from them for that their claim(s) is/are right before even starting debating - it always is the duty of the one who put forth a claim, to prove his/her claim, not yours to disprove it - - - and besides they never will be able to give real proofs for anything central in Islam. (Remember here that a proof is "one or more proved facts which can only give one conclusion" - Muslims use not proved claims and/or information which can give more than one conclusion, but claiming that the conclusion they want, is the correct one. In none of these cases the proof is a valid one.

466 9/78c: "- - - Allah doth know their secret (thoughts) and their secret counsels - - -". Not unless he exists and is something supernatural (not necessarily a god).

467 9/78d: "- - - Allah knoweth well all things unseen?" A warning - plus see 2/233h above.

468 9/79a: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

469 9/79b: "- - - Allah will throw back their (some bad persons*) ridicule - - -". The old fact: Only possible if he exists and is something supernatural - plus that he is correctly described in the Quran - - - in contradiction to all the Quran's mistakes, etc.

470 9/79c: "- - - grievous penalty - - -" See 3/77b above.

471 9/80a: "Whether thou (Muhammad*) ask for their forgiveness, or not (their sin is unforgivable): if you ask seventy times for their forgiveness, Allah will not forgive them - - -." Some contrast to the NT: There is no sin which is unforgivable if there is honest regret and remorse. And Jesus said: "You shall forgive seventy times seven times" (if there is real regret and remorse). The same god? - prophets in the same line of traditions? Hardly, to use an understatement.

###472 9/80b: "- - - (their (some bad persons*) sin is unforgiveable - - -". One more of the abysmally deep differences between especially the NT and its New Covenant and the Quran, and on one of the most fundamental points in the religions: As mentioned just above, in the NT no sin is unforgiveable if you really and honestly regret. One more of the 110% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same gods and for that Jesus and Muhammad did not belong to the same line of prophets (this even omitting the fact that Muhammad was no real prophet as he was unable to make prophesies).

473 9/80c: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/88b below.

474 9/80d: "- - - Allah guideth not (by the Quran*) - - -". There is not much reliable guidance in a guidebook full of mistakes, etc.

475 9/81a: "Those who were left behind - - -" Not all wanted to go to war, and when there was a call to arms for the expedition to Tabuk in Oct. 630 AD, some of them did not go.

476 9/81b "Those who were left behind - - -" Not all wanted to go to war, and when there was a call to arms for the expedition to Tabuk in Oct. 630 AD. A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

477 9/81c: "Those who were left behind - - -" Not all wanted to go to war, and when there was a call to arms for the expedition to Tabuk in Oct. 630 AD, and some of these did not go. No god could know this for sure long times before if man had free will - not even the expedition could be sure, as it was based on a rumor only. See 9/45c above.

478 9/81d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue Muhammad to his god and his platform of power.

479 9/81e: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc.

480 9/81f: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

481 9/81g: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

482 9/81h: This verse in short: The ones not willing to do battle may end in hell. Do you want end there?

483 9/81i: "The fire of Hell is fiercer in heath". See 3/77b above.

484 9/81j: "If only they (the ones not wanting to go to war*) could understand!" Perhaps that was just what some of the did - understood that something was and is seriously wrong with the Quran and hence with Muhammad and with Islam.

485 9/82a: "Let them (the ones not wanting war*) laugh a little: Much will they weep - - -". See 3/77b above.

486 9/82b: "- - - (evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

487 9/83: "Never shall ye (some people*) come out (to raid or make war*) with me (Muhammad*), nor fight an enemy with me - - -". To say the very least of it: Most different from NT and its New Covenant. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? Not possible is not even the first letter of the answer.

488 9/83-84: The ones not willing to do battle are to be socially despised. No comments necessary, except that there is at least one grotesque example of this social punishment, not to say terrorizing, in Hadiths. Incompatible to NT.

489 9/84a: “Nor do thou ever pray for any of them (those that did not want to go to war*) that dies, nor stand at his grave, for they rejected Allah and (not least?*) His Messenger (Muhammad*), and died in a state of perverse rebellion.” It is perverse not to obey when Islam wants war. If not the carrot of stealing riches, taking slaves and raping women should attract the ones reluctant to go to war, then use heavy social pressure to force them. War is very essential for the Quran. And “is”, not only “was” - “is” for all future.

489a 9/84aa: “Nor do thou ever pray for any of them (those that did not want to go to war*) that dies, nor stand at his grave, for they rejected Allah and (not least?*) His Messenger (Muhammad*), and died in a state of perverse rebellion.” Totally incompatible to the Bible and especially to NT. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets (even if Muhammad had been a real prophet)? There only is one possible answer.

490 9/84b: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his god - though he was never able to prove neither the existence of the claimed god, nor his own connection to one.

491 9/84c: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc.

492 9/84d: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

493 9/84e: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

494 9/84f: "- - - perverse rebellion". Not wanting to go to war with Muhammad (see 9/81) was "perverse rebellion". Some "prophet" - some religion (or "religion"?).

495 9/85a "Allah's Plan - - -". Allah predestines everything, and he does it according to his Plan - a plan nobody and nothing can change. But how can he then punish man for sins Allah himself has planned and forced man to do? - Full predestination means no free will for man, no matter what the Quran claims - even Islam has given in explaining how both can be possible (A6/141) - and then: How can Allah punish for what man is forced to do? Also: Has prayer any meaning when Allah already has decided the outcome?

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.)

**496 9/85b: “Allah’s plan is to punish them (the ones not wanting to go to war*) with these things in this world, and that their souls may perish in their (very) denial of Allah”. Refusing war means:

Social contempt.

To most likely end in hell.

To deny Allah.

Is it possible to put more social and religious pressure on a man to make him go to war - willing or not? Anyone saying Islam is peaceful, either has not read the Quran, is repeating “correct” words but wrong meanings, or is a Muslim (who believes it or not believes it).

497 9/85c: "- - - their (non-Muslims'*) souls may perish in their (very) denial of Allah". Similar are often claimed, but never proved - and wrong unless Allah really exist and is correctly described in the Quran.

498 9/86a: “When a surah comes down (to Muhammad*), enjoining them to believe in Allah and strive and struggle (= make war*) with His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - - (some do not want to go to war - they prefer to stay with the women, not a nice reputation for an Arab in 631 AD, not to mention for a Bedouin warrior*)”. But after all not every Muslim liked – or likes – war.

499 9/86b: “When a surah comes down (to Muhammad*), enjoining them to believe in Allah and strive and struggle (= make war*) with His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

500 9/86c: “When a surah comes down (to Muhammad*), enjoining them to believe in Allah and strive and struggle (= make war*) with His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Nearly as far as possible away from the NT as it is to come. The same god? he same line of prophets? Possible to believe if you are naive.

501 9/86d: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -." Can a man preaching so many mistakes, contradictions, etc. really be the messenger of a god - even a benevolent one? Besides see 9/88b below.

502 9/86e: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -.". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

503 9/87a: "They (contemporaries of Muhammad not wanting to go to war) to be (at home*) - - -". See 9/45c above.

504 9/87b: "- - - their (doubters'*) heart is sealed - - -". But how can Allah judge them when he himself has "sealed their hearts" (= made it impossible for them to understand)?

505 9/87c: "- - - they (doubters staying behind in war*) understand not". Well, maybe that was exactly what they did - understood that something was seriously wrong.

506 9/88a: “But the Messenger (Muhammad*), and all those who believe with him, strive and struggle with their wealth and their persons (= wage war*): for them are (all) good things (like spoils of war, slaves, women to rape, etc.*): and it is they who will prosper”.

To say the least of it: Incitement to wage war for Muhammad/Islam. But NB: This claim was never proved - it just is words.

506a 9/88aa: “But the Messenger (Muhammad*), and all those who believe with him, strive and struggle with their wealth and their persons (= wage war*): for them are (all) good things (like spoils of war, slaves, women to rape, etc.*): and it is they who will prosper”. Incompatible with the Bible, and especially with NT. One more of the proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god and for that Jesus and Muhammad very far from are in the same line of prophets - even if Muhammad had been a real prophet.

507 9/88b: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Was he really a messenger? It is clear he was not a prophet, in spite of repeated claims - claims are cheap and like in the Quran often not true even when wrapped in beautiful or strong words. It is very clear he was unable to make prophesies - "see what had not happened" - and no person unable to make prophesies really is a prophet. (Oh, there are other definitions for a "prophet" - many like that title. But one unable to make prophesies, is not a prophet - this even more so as the original title was not "prophet", but "a seer" - one who was able to see the unseen (1. Sam. #9/9, 9/11, 9/18, 9/19, 2. Sam. 15/27, 1. Chr. 9/29, 26/28, 29/29, 2. Chr. 16/7, 16/10, 19/2, 29/25, Micah 3/7, 2. King 17/13.) But was he a messenger? - and in case for who? Not for a god - no god makes a "holy" book where so many facts are wrong and with so many other errors, contradictions, cases of invalid logic, unclear language, etc. Was he a messenger for dark forces - f.x. for a devil dressed up like Gabriel? - the stealing and raping and blood and injustice and war may indicate this, as may the partly immoral moral code and the partly unjust laws, and Muhammad would not have one chance of seeing the difference between Gabriel and a well dressed up copy. Or a "messenger" for a mental illness? - modern medical science suspects he had TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) - a mental illness which can give religious hallucinations like the ones Muhammad claimed he had. Or a messenger for helpers in the background? - there were rumors about that. Or for himself?

508 9/88c: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

509 9/88d: "- - - strive and struggle with their wealth and their persons - - -". An expression used in the Quran rather frequently. It means to use of your wealth to enable yourself to go to war and or help Muhammad to finance his wars, plus take part in the war or raids yourself. Try to find something even remotely similar in NT. Definitely not the same god or the same line of prophets preaching.

510 9/88e: "- - - for them (good Muslims*) are (all) good things: and it is they who will prosper". Often claimed, never proved. Two of the many cheap and not documented claims in the Quran.

511 9/89a: “Allah hath prepared for them (his warriors/terrorists) Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein: that is the supreme felicity”.

Once more - to say the least of it: Incitement to wage war for Muhammad - and for Allah if he exists. On the other hand: How will "life" in such a boring paradise be in the long run - no mental activity at all?

512 9/89b: "- - - Gardens under which rivers flow - - -". The most frequently used Arabism in the Quran. See 4/13d above.

513 9/89c: This verse actually is rather similar to 9/72a above.

514 9/90a: "And there were, among the desert Arabs - - - those who were false to Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

515 9/90b: "And there were, among the desert Arabs - - - those who were false to Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". 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.

As for predestination contra free will for man, also see 3/154, 6/149a, and 7/34a above, and 14/22b below.

516 9/90c: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his god - though he was never able to prove neither the existence of the claimed god, nor his own connection to one.

517 9/90d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc. Also see 9/88b above.

518 9/90e: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

519 9/90f: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

520 9/90g: "- - - grievous penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

521 9/90h: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". Any non-Muslim.

522 9/91a: "- - - (- - - the Cause) - - -". = Allah's cause - which here on Earth meant Muhammad's cause.

523 9/91b: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his god and his platform of power.

524 9/91c: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc. Also see 9/88b above.

525 9/91d: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

526 9/91e: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

528 9/91g: "- - - Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

529 9/91h: Verse 9/91 in short says that only those with heavy reasons for staying at home when Allah - Muhammad - wants a raid or a war, were to be excused for not joining the raid or war party.

530 9/91i: Verse 9/91 in short says that only those with heavy reasons for staying at home when Allah - Muhammad - wants a raid or a war, were to be excused for not joining the raid or war party.

This means it is different - and contradicting - in the extreme from the Bible, and especially from NT and the New Covenant. It simply is incompatible with especially the NT. One more heavy and 100+% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of prophets. (On the last point: Is it possible to find two characters who morally, ethically and in teaching were more different and further apart than Jesus and Muhammad? - the messenger of love versus the messenger/warlord of hate, crime, suppression and war. Besides one was a prophet or more according to both the Bible and the Quran, whereas the other even himself admitted he did not have the ability of making prophesies ("see the unseen").

531 9/92a: "Nor (is there blame) on those who came to thee (Muhammad*) to be provided with mounts (but could not go on raids because Muhammad had not enough such ones*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

532 9/92b: Like verse 9/91 above this verse is different - and contradicting - in the extreme (incompatible with) from the Bible, and especially from NT and the New Covenant. One more heavy and 100+% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of prophets. (On the last point: Is it possible to find two characters who morally, ethically and in teaching were more different and further apart than Jesus and Muhammad? - the messenger of love versus the messenger/warlord of hate, crime, suppression and war. Besides one was a prophet or more according to both the Bible and the Quran, whereas the other even himself admitted he did not have the ability of making prophesies ("see the unseen").

533 9/93a: “The ground (of complaint (for not wanting war*)) is against such as claim an exemption while they are rich - - -”. If you can afford to go to war - or if someone, included the leaders (see 9/92) can help you - then it is a valid reason for complaint and contempt if you do not want to go to war.

A stark contrast to NT: “Thou shallt not Kill”. Yahweh and Allah the same god? - an unnecessary question, as the answer is obvious.

##534 9/93b: "They (the ones not wanting to go to war, but without a "good" reason*) prefer to stay with the (women) - - -". An expression of contempt in many cultures and - as far as we have been able to find out - in all war cultures. (Unnecessary to say: Islam was/is one of the more extreme war cultures, as the war part of it is religiously motivated and very central and strong.)

535 9/93c: "- - - Allah hath sealed their (not believing strong enough to want war*) hearts - - -". See 9/46b+c.

####536 9/93d: "- - - they (the ones not wanting to go to war*) know not (what they miss)". Comment YA1345: "It is not only a duty, but a precious privilege, to serve a great Cause (Islam*) by personal self-sacrifice (to make war for it*). Those who shirk such an opportunity know not what they miss". This is the point of view of modern Muslim scholars - as mentioned before the comments are recent ones. "The Religion of Peace"? No further comments - and none necessary.

537 9/93e: Like verse 9/91 above this verse is different - and contradicting - in the extreme from the Bible, and especially from NT and the New Covenant. One more heavy and 100+% proof for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of prophets. (On the last point: Is it possible to find two characters who morally, ethically and in teaching were more different and further apart than Jesus and Muhammad? - the messenger of love versus the messenger/warlord of hate, crime, suppression and war. Besides one was a prophet or more according to both the Bible and the Quran, whereas the other even himself admitted he did not have the ability of making prophesies ("see the unseen").

538 9/94a: Do not believe the excuses from the ones not wanting to go to war - the real reason is that they are bad Muslims.

A good Muslim goes to war whenever his leaders call. Yahweh and Allah the same god? No answer is necessary.

538a 9/94aa: Do not believe the excuses from the ones not wanting to go to war - the real reason is that they are bad Muslims. Compare this to NT - incompatible.

539 9/94b: "Allah hat already informed us (Muhammad*) of the true state of matters concerning you (who do not want to go to war*) - - -". A nice claim. But never proved.

540 9/94c: "- - - true - - -". See 2/2b above.

541 9/94d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc. Also see 9/88b above.

542 9/94e: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) of Allah - - -". A variation of Muhammad's standard mantra for connecting himself to his god and platform of power.

543 9/94f: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

544 9/94g: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

545 9/94h: "- - - grievous penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

546 9/94i: "- - - in the end (at the Day of Doom*) ye (people*) will be brought back to Him (Allah*) - - -". Often claimed, never documented. Muhammad never was able to prove anything essential concerning his religion - everything just is undocumented words (and from a man with a special point of view concerning truth and dishonesty).

547 9/94j: "- - - in the end (at the Day of Doom*) ye (people*) will be brought back to Him (Allah*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which claims you will be brought back to Yahweh. 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.

548 9/94k: "- - - Him (Allah*) who knoweth what is hidden and what is open - - -". See 2/233h above.

549 9/94l: "- - - Him (Allah*) who knoweth what is hidden and what is open - - -". Often claimed, never proved. Actually it is proved wrong, as many things which even then were open (f.x. from the Bible) are wrong in the Quran, and not to forget many things which by then were hidden knowledge (and which could later have proved Allah if Muhammad had given correct information), and which later have been found out by man, are wrong in the Quran.

550 9/94m: "- - - then will He (Allah*) show you the truth of all that ye did". Do not cheat Muhammad! - Allah sees everything and will punish you. Also see 2/233h above.

551 9/95a: "They (the ones not wanting to go to war*) will swear to you (Muhammad*) by Allah, when ye return to them, that ye may leave them alone. So leave them alone: for they are an abomination, and Hell is their dwelling-place - a fitting recompense for the (evil) they did". They did the evil of wanting to be excused from going to war, and consequently are an abomination and only deserve Hell. The 180 degree opposite of NT - and adding that in OT the wars were motivated by establishing and defending a national country, whereas in the Quran the wars, etc. are religiously motivated ("holy wars" - every armed incident Muhammad had, he claimed was holy war or holy battle) - also OT.

552 9/95b: “So leave them (the not good Muslims*) alone: for they are an abomination - - -.” No comments.

#553 9/95c: “So leave them (the ones not wanting to wage war*): for they are an abomination, and Hell is their dwelling-place - a fitting recompense for the (evil) they did”. Not to hate and kill and steal and rob and rape and enslave and murder is an abomination and evil, which ends you in Hell. Your not wanting to go to war will make the raise of power for Muhammad and Islam go slower.

To wage war is the absolute duty for any fit Muslim who can afford it. No misunderstanding possible.

Brave future world.

Do you still believe that Allah is the same god as the Yahweh in NT?

But it is a weighty incitement to naive, uneducated primitives.

#553 9/95c: “So leave them (the ones not wanting to wage war*): for they are an abomination, and Hell is their dwelling-place - a fitting recompense for the (evil) they did”. Incompatible to the Bible to say the least of it, and especially to NT. But words impossible to misunderstand. Anybody believing that the Quran has to be disused to find incitements to war and hate and blood and murder?

554 9/95d: "- - - abomination - - -". See 2/2b above.

555 9/95e: "- - - Hell is their (not good Muslims not wanting to go to war*) dwelling-place - - -". Clear words for your money: If you are fit and can afford it: Go to war or go to Hell. Did anybody whisper the words "the Religion of Peace"?

556 9/95f: "- - - (evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

**557 9/96: “- - - Allah is not pleased with those who disobey (and refuse to go on raids or to war*)”. The good, kind, wise god - leading a "Religion of Peace"?. The question is especially relevant as most of Muhammad's raids were for riches, captives and extortion. And another fact: Here on Earth the sentence simply meant and means that Allah is not pleased with those who did/do not obey Muhammad and his successors.

558 9/97a: "The Arabs of the desert (at the time of Muhammad*) - - -". This is quite a historical anomaly. One thing is the "normal" anomaly - see 4/13d above. Another is that some millennia ago there existed no "Arabs of the desert". They drifted into the desert from different places and became the mixture later called "Arabs" only after the domestication of the camel made life in the desert possible. Before that no reader of a copy of the claimed "Mother Book" - similar to the Quran - would understand one whistle of what the book was talking about when talking about desert Arabs. (The Arab camel - dromedary - was not domesticated until sometime between 4ooo and 2ooo BC).

559 9/97b: "- - - Unbelief - - -". Any religion except Islam - according to Muhammad.

560 9/97c: "- - - the command (in the Quran*) which Allah hath sent down to his Messenger - - -". No god has sent down a book with that many mistakes, etc. and as the book is not from a god, also the commands are not from a god.

561 9/97d: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his god and his platform of power.

 

562 9/97e: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc. Also see 9/88b above.

563 9/97f: "- - - Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

564 9/97g: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

565 9/97h: "- - - Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise". Two examples of the many never proved claims in the Quran. Read using your brain and your knowledge, not only your eyes, and you will find a lot of them. And actually: He is not if he made the Quran.

566 9/97-99: Can these verses at all have been written billions of years ago and be copy of a "mother book" from before ages - may be always existed - and revered by a god and his angels in Heaven? Not unless the predestination is 100%, and even then it is not worthy of reverences from angels, not to mention from and omniscient god. (If you go looking, you will find a number of such doubtful points in the Quran).

567 9/97-104: "The Arabs of the desert are among the worst in Unbelief and hypocrisy - - -". In the beginning Muhammad had great problems winning the nomads and semi-nomads in the desert for his religion. One possible reason was the freedom they were used to - to accept Muhammad as a supreme leader and to accept Islam's on many points strict regime - and its tax - took some coercion. But the combination of a clear message: Become Muslims or fight us and be killed - in spite of Islam's nice claims about the opposite - and the possibility to make money from stealing, robbing, and enslaving did the job. Much of Arabia became Muslim at the point of the sword - combined with some honest new believers, a number won over by Muhammad by means of rich "gifts", and a lot of men among the desert Arabs who wanted to become - and became - rich from looting; well, in some years this combination worked and most Arabs became more or less honestly believing Muslims.

568 9/98a: "Some of the desert Arabs looks upon their payment as a fine." A historical anomaly - see 4/13d and 9/97a above.

569 9/98b: "Some of the desert Arabs looks upon their payment as a fine." This refers to the zakat - the so-called "poor-tax" (but which in reality also were used for a number of other things, too - included war) which all Muslims who was/is not too poor, had and have to pay. You paid/pay from 0% to 10% - average ca. 2.5% - not of your income, but of what you own. All the same 10% on farm products.

570 9/98c: "Some of the desert Arabs looks upon their payment as a fine." 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.

571 9/98d: "- - - Evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

572 9/98e: "- - - Allah is He that heareth and knoweth (all things)". See 2/233h above.

573 9/99a: "- - - some of the desert Arabs (nomads*) believe in Allah and the Last Day, and look on their payments (tax/zakat*) as pious gifts bringing them nearer to Allah - - -. Aye, and indeed they (and perhaps Muhammad's prayers*) bring them nearer (to Him (Allah*))". No comments except: A nice reward - - - if Allah exists and is a god (quite a surprise to some Muslims if he turns out to be someone from the dark forces who sometimes dressed up like the angel Gabriel to meet Muhammad - a possibility which the f.x. immoral parts of the Quran's moral code may point to.

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.)

574 9/99b: "- - - the Last Day - - -". The Day of Doom.

575 9/99c: "- - - indeed - - -". See 2/2b above.

576 9/99d: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/88b above.

577 9/99e: "- - - the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly - see 4/13d above.

##578 9/99f: "- - - prayer - - -". What is the idea of prayers in Islam if the Quran tells the truth when it many places states that Allah predestines every detail which happens, and predestines it according to his Plan which nobody and nothing can change? If nothing can change it, also prayers can change not a thing. This means that if the Quran tells the truth about predestination, prayers just are waste of time and effort. And if it does not tell the truth here, how many other places in the Quran is untrue - and what then is Islam?

##579 9/99g: "- - -the prayers of Muhammad - - -". If nobody and nothing can change Allah's predestined Plan, this also goes for prayers, included Muhammad's prayers. Also see 9/99e just above.

580 9/99h: "- - - soon will Allah admit them (good Muslims*) to his Mercy (paradise*)". Often claimed, never proved. And as for Allah's mercy, see 1/1a above.

581 9/99i: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". If Allah made the surahs from Medina, he is very far from most merciful. Destroying lives and communities, torture, rape, enslavement, murder, mass murder, apartheid and suppression and more - little mercy.

582 9/100a: Rather similar to 9/72 above – Muhammad did not have inventive fantasy, only the smart kind.

583 9/100b: "The vanguard (of Islam) - the first of those who forsook (their homes (= fled from Mecca*)) - - -". A time anomaly. See 4/13d above.

584 9/100c: "- - - those (non-Muslims in Medina when the Muslims arrived and others*) who gave them (Muhammad's Muslims*) aid - - -". See 9/98c above.

585 9/100d: "- - - for them (good Muslims*) hath He (Allah*) prepared Gardens under which rivers flow (= Paradise*) - - -". Claimed MANY times, never documented. Not true unless Allah exists and is a powerful god - and not unless the Quran in addition has told the full truth and only the truth about this.

586 9/100e: "- - - Gardens under which rives flow - - -". The most frequently used Arabism in the Quran.

587 9/100f: "- - - to dwell therein (Paradise*) for ever - - -". But 11/108c indicates that it perhaps is not forever.

588 9/100g: "- - - the supreme felicity - - -". See 2/2b above.

589 9/100-101: Can these verses at all have been written billions of years ago and be copy of a "mother book" from before ages - may be always existed - and revered by a god and his angels in Heaven? Not unless the predestination is 100%, and even then it is not worthy of reverences from angels, not to mention from and omniscient god. (If you go looking, you will find a number of such doubtful points in the Quran).

590 9/101a: "Certain of the desert Arabs - - - are obstinate in hypocrisy - - -". See 9/98c above.

591 9/101b: "Certain of the desert Arabs - - - are obstinate in hypocrisy - - -". See 9/98c above.

592 9/101bc "- - - desert Arabs - - -". This is quite a historical anomaly. One thing is the "normal" anomaly - see 4/13d above. Another is that some millennia ago there existed no "Arabs of the desert". They drifted into the desert from different places and became the mixture later called "Arabs" only after the domestication of the camel made life in the desert possible. Before that no reader of a copy of the claimed "Mother Book" - similar to the Quran - would understand one whistle of what the book was talking about when talking about desert Arabs. The Arab camel - the dromedary (mistakenly called one-humped, but it has two, only that the anterior one is very small) - was not domesticated until sometime between 4ooo and 2ooo BC.

593 9/101c: "- - - twice shall We (Allah*) punish them (desert Arabs*) - - -". See 3/77b above.

594 9/101d: "- - - grievous penalty - - -". See 3/77b above.

595 9/102a: "Others (of the desert Arabs at the time of Muhammad*) - - - have acknowledged their wrongdoings - - -". See 9/98c above.

596 9/102b: "- - - wrongdoings - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

597 9/102c: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

598 9/103a: "- - - pray (Muhammad*) on their (the good desert Arabs*) behalf - - -". To what avail if Allah predestines everything according to his Plan which nobody and nothing can change anyhow? - one of the Quran's and Islam's most central and unsolvable mysteries and contradiction - and one which unlike the impossibility of combining Allah's complete predestination with even a small piece of free will for man, is never mentioned by Muslims. (Total predestination after all is mentions sometimes by Islam, though their scholars (not the lay people who believe in the mumbo-jumbo they are told explains it) admit it is impossible to understand how it can be combined.)

599 9/103b: "Verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

600 9/103c: "Verily thy (Muhammad's*) prayers are a source of security for them (good Muslims*) - - -". How is that possible? See 9/103a above.

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

601 9/103d: "- - - Allah is One Who heareth and knoweth (everything*)". See 2/233h above.

602 9/104a: "Know they (people*) not that Allah doth accept repentance - - -". But what is the idea if Allah already has predestined everything according to his unchangeable Plan? If the Plan and the predestinations are unchangeable and made eons before like the Quran states, also repentance cannot have any effect. See 9/103a above.

603 9/104b: "Know they (people*) not that Allah doth accept repentance - - - and that Allah is verily He - - -". This is a serious problem: The ONLY source for claimed information about the claimed god Allah, is a man with a very special view on honesty (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, "war is betrayal", break even your oaths if that gives a better result) and a liking for power. No-one in reality knows anything about Allah - many believe, but with such an unreliable source, no-one knows, only believes. The only thing which is proved and thus possible to know, is that there are very many mistakes and other errors in the Quran, and thus that no god has been involved in making or delivering it, and that consequently also much is seriously wrong with Islam.

604 9/104c: "- - - (Allah*) doth accept their (Muslim's*) gifts of charity - - -". As mentioned before the stressing on charity is one of (the not too many) good sides with Muhammad's teaching. But this sentence touches one of the weak spots of the Quran's charity: The main thing is not to help persons in distress, but to gain points in Heaven.

605 9/104d: "- - - verily - - -". See 2/2b above.

606 9/104e: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

607 9/105a: "- - - (righteousness) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

608 9/105b: "- - - soon Allah will observe your work - - -" - and reward your good deeds and your obedience to Allah aka Muhammad and punish your bad deeds and your disobedience - so stay in line and remember the discipline.

609 9/105c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 9/74 and 9/88b above".

610 9/105d: "- - - His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

611 9/105e: "- - - soon (at the Day of Doom*) will ye (people*) be brought back to (Allah*)". Often claimed, never proved - and one of those many claims any believer in any religion can make on behalf of his god(s) as long as he/she can evade any questions for proofs - words are that cheap.

612 9/105f: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims - only Muslims believe according to the Quran.

613 9/105g: "- - - the Knower (Allah*) of what is hidden and what is open - - -". If he exists, and if he in addition is a god - or perhaps something from the dark forces, which also may have supernatural vision.

614 9/105h: "- - - the Knower (Allah*) of what is hidden and what is open - - -". See 3/233e above.

615 9/105i: "- - - the truth - - -". See 2/2a above.

616 9/106a: "- - - (Allah's*) mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

617 9/106b: "- - - Allah is All-Knowing, Wise". Not if he made the Quran - too much is wrong. Also see 2/233h.

618 9/107a: "And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and infidelity - - -". In 631 AD some opponents led by one Abu Amir from the tribe Bani Ghanam made a competing mosque in Dhu Awan. Muhammad had it destroyed shortly after - no competition, thank you. And "let there be no compulsion in religion".

619 9/107b: "And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and infidelity - - -". See 9/98c above.

620 9/107c: "And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and infidelity - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

621 9/107d: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

622 9/107e: "- - - they (some in Medina*) mediated a plot which they were unable to carry out - - -". This is said to refer to a plot planned by some ones in Medina when Muhammad returned from the military expedition to Tabuk in the autumn 630 AD.

623 9/107f: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue Muhammad to his god and his platform of power.

624 9/107g: "- - - Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". No omniscient god ever had a messenger preaching a lot of wrong facts, contradictions, etc., etc.

625 9/107h: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

626 9/107i: "- - - Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See 63/5a below.

627 9/107j: "- - - But Allah doth declare that they (the ones making a competing mosque in Medina*) are certainly liars". At least according to their opponent Muhammad.

628 9/108a: "Never stand thou (Muhammad*) forth therein". Muhammad should never lead the prayer in the competing mosque. If the Quran had been from a god, this would be an order to Muhammad not to accept a slightly divergent teaching. This is the intended meaning of it. But as the Quran is not from any god - too much is wrong - this simply may be a part of a struggle for power.

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.)

629 9/108b: "Never stand thou (Muhammad*) forth therein (in the competing mosque*)". A historical anomaly. See 4/13d above.

630 9/108c: "There is a mosque - - -". Perhaps the mosque in the nearby town Quba, built 623 AD, but may also be the mosque in Medina, or a general expression. The text is not clear.

631 9/108d: "- - - (for prayer) - - -". What is the idea with prayers in Islam, if it is true like the Quran many places states that Allah predestines everything, and predestines it according to his Plan, which nobody and nothing can change? If nothing can change what he already has predestined, also prayers cannot change anything.

632 9/108e: "- - - Allah loveth - - -". If he exists, is a god and is correctly described in the Quran.

633 9/109a: “Which then is best? - he (Muslim*) that layeth his foundation on piety to Allah - - - or he (non-Muslim*) that layeth his foundation on an undermined sand-cliff ready to crumble to pieces?” If there existed a small proof for Allah’s existence, there was no doubt about the answer. As it is, both may be equal.

634 9/109b: "And Allah guideth not - - -". He cannot guide unless he exists.

635 9/109c: "And Allah guideth not - - -". He cannot guide by means of a guidebook - the Quran - which is full of mistakes + a partly immoral moral code.

636 9/109d: "And Allah guideth not people that do wrong". What consequence does this have for Muslims, as the Quran partly advices deeds obviously wrong and immoral (f.x. punish a raped woman if she has no 4 male witnesses. And also steal/rob, rape, suppress, kill, etc.)

637 9/109e: "- - - do wrong". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

638 9/110a: "The foundation of those who so build (not quite in accordance with Muhammad and not accepting his total power*) is never free from suspicion and shakiness in their hearts - - -". Cheap claims similar to this you find in most religious sects talking about their competitors - it is a most standard one.

639 9/110b: "And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise". See 27233e and 9/60 above.

640 9/111a: “Allah hath purchased of the Believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the Garden (of Paradise): they fight in His (Allah’s) Cause, and slay and are slain (and go to Paradise afterwards*) - - -.” It may be a good, if de-humanizing (war mostly is) deal - - - if Allah and the Paradise exists. If not the only person gaining anything was Muhammad (and all the mistakes, etc. in the Quran proves absolutely that at least something is seriously wrong).

641 9/111b: “Allah hath purchased of the Believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the Garden (of Paradise): they fight in His (Allah’s) Cause, and slay and are slain (and go to Paradise afterwards*) - - -.” Try to find something similar to this in NT - or even in the more warlike OT. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets (even omitting the fact that Muhammad was unable to make prophesies - "see the unseen")? The answers are very obvious. This is incompatible to the Bible.

642 9/111c: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

643 9/111d: “- - - they (warriors/terrorists*) fight in His (Allah’s (or Muhammad’s?*)) cause, and slay and are slain: (and get great reward in Paradise*)”. Can anyone really read the Quran - even a Muslim - and afterwards believe the Quran represents a good, peaceful, benevolent god? One is reminded of the blood orgies of the Mayas and Incas, except that Islam mostly kills at the spot - like the Assyrians. And "the Religion of Peace"??

**644 9/111e: “- - - they fight in His (Allah’s*) cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law - - -". Wrong. This refers to the "Law of Moses". But the old Jews did not fight for the god, but to establish and later defend a national country here on Earth.

**645 9/111f: “- - - they fight in His (Allah’s*) cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran - - -”. As for the Gospels: This is not even is wrong - it is nonsense, and can only be made up by someone not knowing the Gospels. There is nothing like this in the Gospels - this even if Islam pretends the text refers to a Gospel that has disappeared (there are references to the word “sword“, but not as part of war or incitement to war - not to mention the pacifistic picture the total NT give). There is a theoretical possibility for that there existed an older Gospel, but this fairy tale or nightmare is not taken from that one either. Because if it ever existed, we know the contents of it, as three of the present Gospels in case used that one as their main source (the other possibility is that two of those Gospels used the oldest one as their source - in that case there is no reason to believe there ever was older Gospel, but it is to be hoped there was, because that gives an even older written source for the Bible - and makes it even more reliable according to all rules for study of history and for such science. By the way: No serious student or professor of history use the Quran as a source for happenings older than 610 AD - which tells volumes about how they evaluate the reliability of this book presumably sent down by an omniscient god).

But the real reason why it is not the slightest doubt that this is made up, is that the sentence so totally and 180 degrees oppose the very teachings of the NT - and the entire NT. incompatible. Yahweh and Allah the same god? No answer necessary.

646 9/111g: "- - - the Law (of Moses*), the Gospel (there are 4, not 1), and the Quran - - -". 3 historical anomalies. See 4/13d above.

647 9/111h: "- - - a promise binding on Him in truth - - -". Is this promise reliable when you only find it in a book not made by the god who is claimed to have given it? - and a book which on top of is literally is full of errors?

648 9/111i: "- - - truth - - -". See 2/2b above.

649 9/111j: "- - - who is more faithful to His Covenant than Allah?". Many if Allah does not exist or if he is not correctly described in the Quran. Not to mention if he is part of the dark forces, which the dark parts of the Quran may indicate.

650 9/111k: "Then rejoice in the bargain which ye (Muslim warriors*) have concluded: that is the achievement supreme”. A good bait – but see 9/111a and 9/111e above.

651 9/111l: "- - - bargain - - -". In this case: Only if everything is true. Also see 2/2b above.

652 9/111m: "- - - achievement supreme". See 2/2b above.

653 9/112a: "Those who turn (to Allah); that serve Him, and praise Him, that wander in devotion to the Cause of Allah; that bow down and prostrate themselves in prayer; that enjoins good and forbid evil, and observe the limit set by Allah - (these do rejoice)". Only if Allah exists and is a god (not f.x. something from the dark forces like parts of the Quran may indicate - or not simply is a fiction from one or more human brains, sick or not sick).

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.)

654 9/112b: "- - - prayer - - -". What is the idea of prayers in Islam, if it is true like the Quran many places states that Allah predestines everything, and predestines it according to his Plan, which nobody and nothing can change? If nothing can change what he already has predestined, also prayers cannot change anything.

655 9/112c: "- - - enjoin good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

656 9/112d: "- - - forbid evil - - -". See 9/112b just above.

657 9/112e: "- - - glad tidings - - -". A book with so much war and blood and apartheid and suppression and rape and incitement to dislike and distaste and hate and lying and much more, is no "glad tiding". This even more so if the book is a made up one - and at least it is not from a god; no god makes that many errors, etc. And we refrain from mentioning the case "what if there is a true religion somewhere which Muslims have been prohibited to look for?" - what kind of (perhaps) next life then for Muslims?

##659 9/113a: "It is not fitting, for the Prophet and those who believe, that they should pray forgiveness for Pagans - - - (who are bound for Hell*)". In NT it always is permitted to pray for the lost souls - we are back to the search for f.x. "the lost lamb" and to "the 11.th hour" (Luke 15/8-10 and 15/11-31, Matt. 18/12-14, 20/8-13). Definitely Allah is not like Yahweh - and Muhammad not in the same line of prophets as Jesus (if they had been, their teachings had had to be similar). And remember: Science has proved far beyond any even unreasonable doubt that the Bible and especially the NT is not falsified in spite of Muhammad's never proved claims - may be some mistakes, but no falsifications. The best proof for this is Islam: If one single real falsification had been found, Islam had screamed about it to every living being on Earth, included rats and worms. No such scream has ever been heard.

660 9/113b: "- - - 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, 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"?)

If the Quran simply belongs among the apocryphal books, many things are easy to understand, and it at least belongs in that line and tradition, even if it is further "out" than most of the others. Muhammad also fits the picture of the leader of an apocryphal sect, admittedly more immoral and bloody than most of the others.

Also see 30/40h below.

661 9/113c: "- - - those who believe - - -". = Muslims.

662 9/113d: "It is not fitting, for the Prophet and those who believe, that they should pray forgiveness for Pagans, even though they be of kin - - -". This cynical sentence tells a few megabytes about the Quran, about Muhammad, and about Islam. And even if this was the only difference between the Bible and the Quran, this alone had been a 100% proof for that Yahweh and Allah is not the same god.

663 9/113e: "- - - companions of the Fire". = They will end in Hell.

664 9/114a: "And Abraham prayed for his father's forgiveness - - -". This is not from the Bible. There is said nothing about his father's religion or that his father (Terah in the Bible, Azar in the Quran) was a sinner and needed forgiveness in the Bible. There also is no conflict between the two in the Bible.

665 9/114b: "And Abraham prayed for his father's forgiveness - - -". This gives a meaning if Yahweh was Abram/Abraham's god. But what is the idea with prayers in Islam, if it is true like the Quran many places states that Allah predestines everything, and predestines it according to his Plan, which nobody and nothing can change? If nothing can change what he already has predestined, also prayers cannot change anything.

666 9/114c: "And Abraham prayed for his father's forgiveness only because of a promise he had made to him". The Quran in 9/113 tells it is not proper for a prophet to pray for Pagans. In the Quran Abraham is the 2. most central prophet, and thus of course cannot do anything not proper, so an explanation for his praying for his father has to be found: He prayed because he had promised to do so - - - but how could such a big prophet give so improper a promise?

667 9/114d: “- - - he (Abraham - said by Islam to be a Muslim*) dissociated himself from him (Abraham’s claimed pagan father*)” Beware that everybody of any positive consequence whom the Quran “borrows” from the Bible, is transformed to be a Muslim in the Quran - anyone, even Jesus and Adam and Noah and Joseph, and Moses and all the prophets - and Abraham.

Be no friend even with your parents if they are not Muslims! (This is a quite normal demand in extreme religious sects - the leaders want full control.)

This is one of the rather sad points of the Quran - even a central point: Islam shall mean so much to you, that if even your closest family - children or parents - do not obey you and become Muslims: Leave them and forget them. Fanaticism shall be the norm in Islam. Similar things are said more places in the Quran - Noah should f.x. let his son drown, because the son was no Muslim (which Noah was said to be!!). A nice and benevolent and human religion.

Only Islam really can be your closest friend. Nothing and nobody else - except Muhammad - counts.

The irony here is that according to the Bible (1. Mos. 11/31-32) the two stayed together till his father died in old age. (And any honest scientist will tell you that according to normal rules, the Bible will be reckoned to be more reliable than the Quran.)

668 9/114e: "- - - he (Abraham*) dissociated himself from his father (and left him*) - - -". This is contradicting the Bible. What the Bible tells about his father, Terah, is found in 1. Mos. 11/25-32. The text which is relevant here is 1. Mos. 11/31-32: "Terah took his son Abram (later renamed to Abraham by Yahweh - a detail not mentioned in the Quran is that his name was not at all Abraham until late in his life: 1. Mos. 17/1-5: "When Abraham was ninety-nine years old, the Lord (Yahweh*) appeared to him and said, - - - 'No longer will you be called Abram, your name will be Abraham'"*), his grandson Lot son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai (later renamed Sarah*), the wife of his son Abram, and together they set out from Ur of the Chaldeans (in what now is south Iraq*) to go to Canaan (approximately what is now Israel*). But when they came to Haran (in what now is north Iraq*), they settled there. Terah lived 205 years, and died in Haran". Nothing about Abram dissociated himself from his father - on the contrary. Later - in 1. Mos. 12/4-6 - Abram continued to Canaan. Now Abram/Abraham may have been fiction. But if he has lived, any professor - or even student - of history will say that the Bible is a more reliable source than the Quran, as it is written 1ooo years closer to what happened, and was building on strong traditions - and no serious professor believes the Quran is made by a god and thus reliable, a fact that is proved by the reality that no serious professor - or even serious student - ever use the Quran for a source for anything which happened before 610 AD, and only carefully for things which happened after that year.

669 9/114f: "- - - for Abraham was most tenderhearted, forbearing". A man who uses his wife as a bite for riches and lets her be taken away by men obviously intending her for their harems (1. Mos. 12/13-19 and 20/1-3), a man who sends away his son and the son's mother to survive as best they could in a foreign land, a man who is willing to kill his own and only remaining son, and his only son by then in wedlock (1. Mos. 22/2-12) (He got 6 more later - 1. Mos. 25/1-2 - but these disappeared from the story) - well, such a man is not most tenderhearted. To quote a wise man: "That something is said or written does not necessarily mean that it is true" - a fact we should have mentioned more often when talking about the Quran.

670 9/115a: "And Allah will not mislead a people after He hath guided them - - -". Allah can neither lead nor mislead unless he exists.

671 9/115b: "And Allah will not mislead a people after He hath guided them - - -". Is it possible to lead or guide anyone religiously by means of a book full of mistakes and contradictions and with no god behind it?

672 9/115c: "- - - in order that He (Allah*) may make clear - - -". Allah is claimed to speak through the Quran - and a book with that many mistakes, contradictions, etc., makes very little clear.

673 9/115d: "- - - Allah hath knowledge of all things". See 2/233h above.

674 9/115e: "- - - Allah hath knowledge of all things". Also this only may be true if he exists and is a major god.

675 9/116a: "Unto Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Often claimed - never proved. And a claim any priest in any religion can make on behalf of his god(s) as long as he evades all questions for proof - such claims are that cheap.

676 9/116b: "Unto Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Only possible if he exists and is a major god, neither of which was ever proved.

677 9/116c: "Unto Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". Strongly contradicted by the Bible, which claims it belongs to Yahweh. 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.

678 9/116d: “- - - heavens - - -“. Plural and wrong. See 2/22d.

679 9/116e: "He (Allah*) giveth life and he taketh it". That Allah - actually his followers - does take lives is an all too well-known fact. But the claim that he also gives life is interesting, because this never is proved - claimed often, but never proved (whereas if the Bible or the Quran tells the truth on this point, Yahweh really has proved his power over also the death and thus to give life). Also see 7/158i above and 21/56c below.

680 9/116f: "Except for Him (Allah*) ye have no protector nor helper". Wrong according to the Quran - the book tells that angels may be protectors, that Muslims are the protectors of each other (and non-Muslims of each others), and that Muhammad even may protect, or at least intercede for, the ones he wants, even at the Day of Doom - one of the reasons for being friendly and obedient to him?

681 9/116g: "Except for Him (Allah*) ye have no protector nor helper". Contradicted by the Bible, which says that Yahweh is a good helper and 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.

682 9/117a: "Allah turned with favor to - - -". In all history there is not one proved case of Allah showing any favor to anybody - not even to Muhammad (f.x. many a leader has built his power from scratch - some by means of religion, some by other platforms of power).

683 9/117b: “- - - the Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -.” See 9/113b above.

684 9/117c: "- - - the Prophet (Muhammad*), the Mujahirs, and the Ansar - - -". 3 historical anomalies. See 4/13d above.

685 9/117d: "- - - the Mujahirs - - -". The Muslims who fled from Mecca because of persecution at the end of the so-called Mecca Period (ended in 622 AD with Muhammad's fleeing Mecca himself).

686 9/117e: "- - - Ansars - - -". The Arabs in Medina who helped Muhammad and his followers the first time after the flight from Mecca to Medina.

687 9/117f: "- - - He (Allah*) is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

688 9/118a: "- - - the three who were left behind - - -". This refers to 3 men (Ka'b ibn Malik, Mararah ibn at-Rabi, Hilal ibn Umayah) who did not want to take part in the big expedition towards Tabuk (it came to nothing), and who chose to be honest about it. They had to live through serious psychological terror and punishment when Muhammad returned. They were uneducated and naives and did not understand what was done to them, but any somewhat educated person today recognizes the cruel method Muhammad used for punishment, for preventing similar things to happen in the future, and for giving people other things to talk about than no loot from the unsuccessful war expedition. You find the story in Hadiths - f.x. Al-Bukhari.

689 9/118b: "- - - the three who were left behind - - -". How come that this story is in a book claimed to be written eons earlier - and what could all the earlier 124ooo claimed prophet understand and learn from this history they did not know? Also see 9/98c above.

690 9/118c: "- - - the three who were left behind - - -". The story of these three (see 9/118a above) who did not go to war, and not least Muhammad's reaction to them, proves 100+% that Muhammad did not belong in the same line of prophets as Jesus - their fundamentals were too different by far - and also that Islam is very far from the teachings of Jesus.

691 9/118d: "- - - they (the 3 mentioned in 9/118a above*) perceived that there is no fleeing (from Allah) - - -". Well, at least they were unable to flee from Muhammad and his power.

692 9/118e: "- - - Allah is Most Merciful - - -". See 1/1a above.

693 9/119a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims.

694 9/119b: "- - - those who are true (in word and deed)". Here meant the Muslims, but see 9/119c just below.

695 9/119c: "- - - true (in word and deed) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. In this case also see 2/2b above.

696 9/120a: “It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighborhood, to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger (to wage war - it refers to the expedition to Tabuk*) - - - “. But it is fitting for Islam to steal and rob and kill end enslave and suppress.

And it was “fitting” to make Muhammad a powerful warlord.

What then about “let there be no compulsion in religion”? - or about religious wars? - not to mention what about honesty and "do unto others like you want others do unto you"? - the basic law behind all real inter human morality. Not to mention: Can Jesus and Muhammad be in the same line of prophets - (they in case have to preach approximately the same truths, the same basic ideas and the same moral code). No answer necessary - and the same goes for "is Yahweh the same god as Allah"?

697 9/120b: “It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighborhood, to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger (to wage war - it refers to the expedition to Tabuk*) - - - “. A historical anomaly - see 4/13d above.

698 9/120c: “It was not fitting for the people of Medina and the Bedouin Arabs of the neighborhood, to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger (to wage war - it refers to the expedition to Tabuk*) - - - “. See 9/98c above.

699 9/120d: “It was not fitting for (them - see 9/120a just above*) to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his - - -”. Muhammad demanded blood and lives. According to the Bible Jesus gave his life. The same line of prophets? Yahweh and Allah the same god? No-one with real knowledge is able to believe that - except some Muslims (religiously blind = one who believes not because of proofs, but in spite of proofs).

700 9/120e: “It was not fitting for (them - see 9/120a just above*) to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his - - -”. Incitement to war. What does just this tell about Islam? What it does tell about Muhammad and Islam is that the Quran is - not a fairy tale, but a demon tale?

And: Make Muhammad a powerful warlord! Hitler said similar things (actually some intellectuals compared Nazism to Islam before WW2.)

701 9/120f: “It was not fitting for (them - see 9/120a just above*) to refuse to follow Allah’s Messenger, nor to prefer their own lives to his - - -”. In addition to - and above - all other facts this sentence divulges shines the inhumanity in Muhammad's demands.

702 9/120g: “- - - (not*) to refuse to follow (in war) Allah’s Messenger (Muhammad*), nor to prefer their lives to his: because nothing could they suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness - - - in the cause of Allah - - -”. A testimony of religious blindness and darkness worthy any of the most bloody pagan religions - or modern sects praying to the Devil for a god. Or the darkest sides of Nazism or communism.

703 9/120h: "- - - nothing could they suffer or do, but was reckoned to their credit as a deed of righteousness - - - in the cause of Allah - - -”. This only - only - can be true if Allah exists and if everything in addition in addition is correctly told in the Quran - a book choke full of mistakes, contradictions, etc.

704 9/120i: "- - - righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

705 9/120j: "- - - the Cause of Allah - - -". We just remind you that a cause of Allah does not exist unless Allah exists. If he does not, it was the cause of Muhammad.

706 9/120k: "- - - trod paths to raise the ire of the Unbelievers - - -". One more clear indication for that the Bible and NT, Jesus and Muhammad are too far apart to be from the same god or the same line of prophets - this sentence is the very opposite of Jesus' teachings of love.

707 9/120l: "- - - Unbelievers - - -". Any non-Muslim.

708 9/120m: “- - - (suffered*) in the Cause of Allah, or trod paths to raise the ire (not in self defense*!!!) of the Unbelievers, or received any injury whatever from an enemy. For Allah suffered not the reward to be lost to those who do good - “. To wage war, with all the destruction and suffering that means, is to do good things in the eyes of Allah and Islam/the Quran. And those of Muhammad.

Make your own comments. Think your own thoughts.

Allah = Yahweh in NT? Only if the god is schizophrenic.

709 9/120n: "- - - for Allah suffereth not for the reward to be lost for those who do good - - -". If he exists. If he is a major god. And if the Quran describes him correctly.<7p>

710 9/120o: "- - - do good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like these, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

711 9/121a: "Nor could they (Muslims*) spend anything (for the Cause (of Allah/Muhammad*)) - small or great - nor cut across a valley, but the deed is inscribed to their credit - - -". Words are easy when one neither has to pay them or prove them. And when you read the Quran you may notice that everything is built on never proved claims and promises only.

712 9/121b: "- - - Allah may requite their (warriors') deeds with the best (possible reward)." A nice reward if Islam is a true religion. A very cheap way for Muhammad to pay his warriors if the religion is a made up one. And here it is very thought provoking that the Quran is not from a god - no god makes that many mistakes, not to mention reveres them in a "mother book" in his heaven. (And no benevolent god has a moral code and war code like in the Quran).

713 9/122a: "- - - go forth (in Battle*) together - - -". Try to find anything similar to this in NT!

714 9/122b: "- - - Believers - - -". Muslims.

715 9/122c: "- - - studies in religion - - -". This is typical for Islam: What counts of knowledge is the religion and things that can strengthen the religion - f.x. astronomy (necessary to place the religious days in the Islamic drifting year) etc. The Muslim area - not Islam, but the Muslim area - had a period from ca. 820 AD till 1095 AD (ca. 1198 in Muslim Spain) when science flourished, but it mostly was in spite of Islam, not because of. Islam split sciences in two: Islamic sciences - the Quran + sciences with relevance to the religion or to the study of the Quran. All other sciences - unbelievably also medicine - were "foreign sciences" and were fought against. Islam won the final battle in that war with a book against philosophy in 1095 AD "The Incoherence of the Philosophers" - by "the greatest Muslim after Muhammad", al-Ghazali - though in Muslim Spain the end did not come until ca. 1198 AD. After that there did not come on single new thought or idea which could benefit humanity from all the Islamic area until far into the 20th century. Literally speaking not a single one. You meet Muslims boasting about Islam's golden time of science. It is mainly untrue, as mostly it was against Islam's will and at times very strong opposition, not because of the religion. Even today a demand is - we quote from (A9/163) (translated from Swedish):"The duty for the believer is to 'make his knowledge deeper in the religion'".

716 9/122d: "- - - (- - - evil) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

717 9/123a: "- - - ye who believe - - -". = Muslims.

#718 9/123b: “Fight the Unbelievers who gird you about - - -". A clear order. Try to find anything similar in NT - or for that case in OT. F.x. "Turn the other cheek" does not fit very well here. One of the proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same line of prophets (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he was unable to make prophesies or "see the unseen").

#719 9/123c: “Fight the Unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know Allah is with those who fear Him (= the Muslims*)”. If "I" do not like what you do - or if "I" use a little conspiracy theories, like Muslims and especially the ones in the Middle East often do, and think you are up to bad things, you surely are girding "me" about, and it is "my" right according to the Holy Quran to kill you.

720 9/123d: "- - - know that Allah is with those who fear him". If he exists. If he is a god. And if the Quran has described him correctly.

721 9124a: "Whenever there cometh down a surah, some of them (non-Muslims*) say: 'Which of you has had his faith increased by it?'" See 9/98c above.

722 9/124b: "Yea, those who believe - their belief is increased and they rejoice". This may well be true, as believers - in any religion - does need more real knowledge, but only claims they accept, to be strengthened in their belief - this is one of the differences between belief and knowledge, and between religion and science. A believer can be selective in what to believe, and he can believe without documentation - yes, against proofs - whereas a scientist has to find out what is the truth before he can call something knowledge.

But what is the value of rejoicing, if the reason for rejoicing is a made up religion? - something which may well be the case if they do not check what is really true and what not. Not to mention: What is the value of rejoicing in a religion if their religion is a made up one - and Islam at least is from no god, as the Quran is far too full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. to come from a god - and there somewhere exists a real religion, which they are prevented from searching. (If Allah in reality is from the dark forces, this is an excellent outcome for him.)

723 9/124c: "- - - those who believe - - -". Muslims.

724 9/125a: "But those in whose hearts are disease - - -". The ones not believing in Muhammad - or not believing strongly enough - were/are sick. You bet Muslims are better!

725 9/125b: "But those in whose hearts are disease - - -". One of Muhammad's many distance and distaste inducing names for non-Muslims.

726 9/125c: "- - - it (new surahs*) will add doubt to their (non-Muslims'*) doubt - - -". The underlying meaning here is that this shows the stupidity of the non-Muslims. But the irony is that with so much wrong in each and every surah, there are good and logical reasons both for doubt and for increased doubt.

727 9/125d: "- - - and they (non-Muslims*) will die in a state of Unbelief". If the Quran is a made up book - and with all those mistakes, contradictions, etc. it at least is from no god - there is no reason for not dying disbelieving it. This is even more the case if it is from dark forces, like the partly immoral moral code, the partly unjust sharia laws, and its favoring dishonesty (al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), deceit/betrayal and even breaking of words/promises/oaths), suppression, brutality and blood may indicate. And if on top there somewhere should exist a true religion you are prohibited to look at, the irony - not to say farce or Greek tragedy - is complete.

728 9/126a: "See they (non-Muslims*) not that they are tried every year - - -." But why does an omniscient god have to try people, if he knows everything on beforehand? - and what value has a trial if Allah has already decided what is going to happen? - Allah decides everything according to the Quran. The only case where all this makes sense and logic, is if it in reality was Muhammad who had to find "explanations" for why raids for riches and power and wars for power were necessary.

729 9/126b: "See they (Muslims*) not that they are tried every year once or twice?" In reality more often - at least the Muslims. The war period under Muhammad was from some time after he arrived in Medina in 622 AD, till he died in 632 AD. During that time it is said there were 82 armed "incidents" ( http://www.1000mistakes.com names 63 of them) - by far most of them were raids for stealing valuables and taking prisoners for slaves or extortion. Split over some 10 years that means 6 - 8 "armed incidents" a year - every second month or a bit more - and practically always the aggression were from Islam - not untypical for this religion. If you took part in all of them (which hardly anyone did) that meant you were tested not once or twice a year, but 6 - 8 times a year. And if you survived - which most of them did - they became rich. or at least richer than before. (If they survived and were not crippled.)

But we have never in all our reading - old or new Islamic literature - or debating, seen or heard one single sentence or thought about what terror, catastrophe, or destruction this meant to all its victims - only the heroism of the destructors. Even today Islam is too primitive to see anything but the glory of "our" victories.

We do hope none of the Muslims in our neighborhood thinks like that. The problem is that many Muslim terrorists also were thought to be good persons before they started terrorism - it is not possible to know who the few are. How do you see the difference between a human and an inhuman Muslim? Like the ones who filmed victims they burned alive or beheaded or in other ways murdered.

730 9/126c: "Yet they (non-Muslims*) turn not in repentance, and they take no heed". It is difficult to do this concerning a religion you believe or know is a false one. We may add that Islam is one of the religions where one may know and not only believe that something is seriously wrong. This because it is claimed to come from a god, and no god makes that amount of mistakes, contradiction, etc. which it is easy to find in the Quran - the only ones not seeing it, are the ones who refuse to see what is in front of their eyes.

731 9/127a: "Whenever there cometh down a surah - - -". Also this is a claim often used, but never proved - did they really come down? and in case from whom as gods are omitted? - no god makes that kind of quality book.

732 9/127b: "- - - Allah hat turned their (non-Muslims'*) hearts (from the light)

733 9/127c: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are a people who understand not". If they do not understand everything, then at least they understand that something is seriously wrong in the Quran and hence with Islam.

734 9/127d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are a people who understand not". Psychologically a good "explanation" for Muhammad to give his followers for why many did not believe in his new religion. Strong believers readily swallow claims like this.

735 9/128a: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Was he? - often claimed, never one single small proof - - - just like many false messengers and prophets through the times. And if he was - from whom or what in case? - a god is no alternative because of all the errors, etc. in the book. Also see 63/5a below.

736 9/128b: “- - - to the Believers (Muslims*) is he (Muhammad*) most kind and merciful.” Wrong. It is not kind to incite them and force them to go to war and “kill and be killed” - - - or maimed. It is not kind to incite hate. It is not kind to demand full submission and obedience. And it far from is merciful to mistreat seriously both mentally, morally, and socially the ones who would not go to war for him or in other ways did not obey him in other things. Actually he was about as kind and merciful as Hitler or Mao or “Uncle Stalin” or the aggressive Zulu king Shaka (also written Chaka), or "Red Khmer". Read what he demanded and did and ordered and the moral code he introduced, etc. - not the nice words he said about himself, but the reality: His demands, orders and deeds. Was he kind and merciful to his followers? Only a strongly believing or undereducated or naive Muslim is able to answer "yes" to that question. - and then we even have omitted the word "most".

737 9/128c: "- - - Believers - - -". = Muslims.

738 9/129a: "Allah sufficeht me (a Muslim*) - - -". This only can - can - be true if he exists.

739 9/129b: "- - - there is no god but He (Allah*) - - -". See 6/106b above.

740 9/129c: "- - - on Him (Allah*) is my (a Muslim’s*) trust - - -". Advisable only if Allah exists and in addition is a god (not f.x. something from the dark forces).

741 9/129d: "- - - He (Allah*) the Lord of the Throne (of Glory) Supreme!" Yes - if the Quran is not a made up book, and if it speaks the truth. And if Allah exists - nothing of which is proved.

Surah 9: Sub-total = 741 + 5 + 5958 = 6704 comments.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

##### 8/69a-d: "- - - lawful and good - - -". If these words and the context it is taken from ("- - - enjoy what (loot, slaves, and women* + destruction and murder) ye took in war (normally of aggression*), lawful and good - - -"), were all you knew about the Quran and Islam, this alone would be enough to remove it from the civilized world and transfer it to the dark, harsh, and inhuman Medieval ages or earlier. This even more so as this is not "abrogated" by today's Islam, but on the contrary preached and even practiced (during armed conflicts) today in some Islamic fora and groups and countries. (Bangladesh, East Timor, and Indonesia a "short" time ago. Indonesian New Guinea and parts of Africa even now.)
