20 June 2012
Revelation: Mecca, 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 94/1: "Have We (Allah*) not expanded your (Muhammad's/Muslims'?*) heart?". Perhaps, but not unless Allah exists and in addition has power for such things".
003 94/1-8: This surah is at best pretty general, and if not pretty unclear. Muslim scholars want it to be Allah speaking to Muhammad, and it is likely they are right. But but for that the meanings the scholars put into these verses varies a lot - unclear or cryptic language.
004 94/2: "And removed from thee (see 94/1 just above*) thy burden - - -". See 94/1 above.
005 94/4: "And raised high the esteem - - -". See 94/1 above.
006 94/5: "- - - verily - - -". See f. ex. 81/19a above.
007 94/6: "Verily - - -". See f. ex. 81/19a above.
008 94/8a: "- - - thy (people's/Muslims'/Muhammad's*) Lord (god*)- - -". Allah - if he exists and if he in case is a god, and not f.x. Iblis dressed up and cheating Muhammad - or an illness like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy) cheating him, like modern medical science suspects.
009 94/8b: "And to thy (Muslims'?*) Lord (Allah*) turn (all) thy attention". Why, when you know that each and every rumor and claim about even his existence are based only on a book choke full of mistakes, contradictions, etc.? This plus some additional words from a man even the religion's own books divulge is the user of lies and deceit and even broken words/promises/oaths - and a man liking power, riches for more power - and women. Plus you know that the claimed god is the pagan old Arab god al-Lah, dressed up and renamed a little to Allah, and tried intertwined with the more accepted old Jewish and Christian god - a god who after all may, but stress the word may, exist. And a former pagan Arab god who has never - never - manifested himself in any provable way. Neither himself, nor his power. There only - only - are the loose and never proved words and claims of this man - a man modern medical science on top of all suspects had a brain illness (TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), an illness whish in case explains both his physical fits and his religious illusions.
