Revelation: Mecca, 611 - 615 AD

(See general comments on Surahs here: Introduction)


 

The quotes and comments

001 "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying, thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free and captured - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we personally believe in the demands and deeds. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities, not from propaganda.

002 93/1: "By the Glorious Morning Light - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the light - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title.

003 93/1-2: "By - - -". A sentence in the Quran starting with "by" normally is an oath - here it seems that the Quran swears that verse 3 is true. But whenever Muhammad or the Quran swears - or in other ways promises - remember that according to the rules for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), it is permitted to lie to defend and to forward Islam (and for 6 - 8 other topics), and that according to Muhammad's own words and deeds in the Quran, even oaths should be broken if that will give a more satisfying result - pay expiation to Allah afterwards if necessary.

004 93/2: "And by the Night - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the night - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title.

005 93/3a: "Thy (verse 93/6 shows that the one spoken to likely is Muhammad, but many scholars also include all Muslims - the famous clear language in the Quran*) Guardian-Lord (Allah*) - - -". Allah - if he exists - is not much of a guardian unless he in addition is a powerful god, neither of which is proved.

006 93/3b: "Thy (Muslims'*) Guardian-Lord (Allah*) hath not forsaken thee - - -". Wrong if the Quran is not from a god or if it for some other reasons does not tell the only and full truth. Well, may be it in an ironic way is true then: If Allah never was, he never did forsake anyone. And also if he never was and not is, he also is not displeased.

007 93/4a "- - - verily - - -". See f. ex. 81/19a above.

008 93/4b: "And, verily, the hereafter will be better for thee (Muslim*) than the present". Yes, but in a general meaning only if the Quran is from a god and if it in addition tells only the truth and the full truth. (This surah is from early Mecca, and the few Muslims mostly were poor, uneducated and not well treated, so words like those were a comfort).

009 93/5a: "And soon will thy (Muslims'*) Guardian Lord (Allah*) - - -". See 93/3a above.

010 93/5b: "And soon will thy (Muslims'*) Guardian Lord (Allah*) give thee (that wherewith) thou (Muslim*) shalt be well-pleased." Wrong if you think about paradise, the Quran is not from a god or if it for some other reasons does not tell the only and full truth. Correct if you think about the Muslims of Muhammad, and the permission the claimed god gave them to steal, extort, suppress, enslave, and kill and become rich.

011 93/5c: "- - - (that wherewith) thou (Muslim*) shalt be well-pleased". = Paradise perhaps. But see 93/5b just above.

012 93/6: (A93/3): “Did He (Allah*) not find thee an orphan and give thee shelter (and care)?” Who really is “thee” in this sentence? – Muhammad, who lost his parents early? – or man who found Islam? – or - - -? Impossible to say. Clear speech?

013 93/7: "- - - He (Allah/the Quran*) gave thee (Muslim*) guidance". Wrong - there is not much guidance in a book full of mistakes, etc.

014 93/9: "- - - treat not the orphan with harshness - - -". Muhammad lost his father before he was born, and his mother when he was 6. This may be the reason for this positive side of the Quran.

015 93/10: "- - - the petitioner - - -". Muslim scholars want this to mean anyone asking for someone, and it is likely they are right. We mention that it in case also includes the poor asking for something, and we then may mention that another positive side with the Quran, is its demanding anyone to help the poor. But it in this connection also is not possible not to mention the fact that the main purpose the Quran gives for your charity, is to gain points in Heaven, not empathy with a fellow human being. And another fact in this connection is that a Muslim is promised the same reward in Heaven for helping his closest family - which in most religions is a duty, not charity - as from helping strangers, which often put strangers far down on the priority list.

016 93/11: "- - - the Bounty of the Lord (Allah*) - - -" - does not exist unless Allah exists and is something supernatural (for his claimed paradise to exist, he has to be a god).
