Allah in the Quran, Chapter 34
01 Jan 2015
SOME GLIMPSES OF THE BEING ALLAH
001 We who are trained in critical thinking from primary school on, and who are used to and have trained ourselves to look for the most reliable points in a case, and to separate reliable points from more suspect claims before we judge, for us it often is difficult to understand how many people are able to dismiss facts - even proved facts - and instead use their wishful thinking to cherry-pick whatever claims they want to be true - true or not - and then judge from there. We see what they do, but it is difficult for us to understand such a folly and naivety.
- 002 "Your C14 method and other methods of radioactive measuring of time has a measurable margin of error (some percents*), and then we deem it completely unreliable and dismiss the methods totally - we want to believe what we want to believe instead". "You have brought solid proofs for that the Bible is not falsified. But we want to believe it is falsified, in spite of that it is not possible even to explain how it can be true when no proved falsification is found and even though it is impossible to explain how tens of thousands of old manuscripts spread over 3 continents can have been identically falsified, how to get permission from tens of thousands of owners to falsify their cherished holy scriptures, how for two religions and many sects to agree on what to falsify - and all this without starting tongues wagging. We prefer instead to believe in never proved and impossible claims claiming it is falsified". "We believe in full predestination for Allah combined with free will for man, even though it is an impossibility - even the sharpest brains in Islam through 1400 years have been unable to explain it, but we prefer to believe in it." Etc., etc., etc., etc.
- 003 As for falsifications there also is the fact that at least for OT we have copies as old as from 150-50 BC (among the Qumran scrolls). They are identical to the present day OT with the exception of bagatel differences normal for hand copied books. AND IF THE OT HAD BEEN FALSIFIED, ALSO THE JESUS WE MEET IN THE QURAN HAD PROTESTED = OT is not falsified. Also for NT science is sure there are no falsifications, even if there is no as clearcut and easy to see proof as for OT. But some 45ooo copies or fragments from or references to Biblical scriptures, older than 610 AD and 0 proved falsification, not even from Islam, are a pretty good and mathematical strength proof.
004 We see that people with strong feelings for something - be it pagan or other religions, political ideas or whatever - think and react. For us it is difficult to understand, because if you search for the truth, you should search for the truth, not for your own wishful thinking, often implanted by your father's wishful and never proved thinking. Muslims far from are alone to believe in something, only because they see their fathers did believe so.
005 Especially when it comes to such a serious question as "if there is a next life, what can I say and what can I do and what can I believe in order to have a good life there?" If we are created by a god, the brain is the second most valuable gift we got - after life itself. No god would give us such a precious gift unless he intended that we should use it - actually any valuable gift which is discarded and not used, is an insult to and a demeaning of the giver, no matter who he was. And no good brain with a minimum of knowledge is able not to see the errors in the Quran (though many are able to flee from what they see, and "explain" it away.
006 Then why do f.x. Islam and the Quran demand blind belief?
007 F.x. Buddha and Jesus were persons of high moral standard and reliability. It may be understandable that people rightly or wrongly believe such persons. But Muhammad is a different story, in spite of all the glorious words he is wrapped up in. #########It is very clear also from the Quran and other central Islamic sources that he used dishonesty and even deceit and betrayal as working tools, that he even accepted the disuse of oaths. Further it is clear from the same sources that he wanted respect and power and women, and also that he personally lied even in the Quran ("even if Allah had brought miracles or real proofs, sceptics would not believe anyhow" - no man with 2 grams of brain and a lot of knowledge about humans, believe such a nonsense is true). To blindly believe in such a man only because your fathers did so and because your forefathers tell you that a book full of errors and worse, is the full and plain and only truth - well, to blindly believe in such a man's tales and your fathers' claims without even engaging your brain and think tings over, and evaluate them when the future perhaps only have two roads to offer; to Hell or to Heaven, is very difficult for us who are used to think ourselves to understand.
008 And what is absolutely sure, is that to do so without really thinking things over, is an insult to the one who perhaps gave you your brain.
009 Below we have given some glimpses of Allah. Add this to his moral and judicial codes and compare it to "do to others like you want others do to you". Further add all the errors, etc. in the Quran. Are you able to recognize an omniscient, good and benevolent god in this reality? - not in the glossy and grandiose words, but in the reality behind the big words?
010 Further add all the many and fundamental differences between Yahweh - remember that both science and even stronger Islam have proved that the Bible is not falsified - and Allah and between their teachings, moral codes, etc. Are you able to recognize Yahweh/God in Allah?
011 Further add all the many and fundamental differences between Jesus and Muhammad, and between their teachings, moral codes, etc. Are you able to believe - even to think - that they belonged to the same religion, not to mention to the same line of prophets? (This in addition to that it is a fact from written history that no religion like Islam and no god like Allah (except the pagan and very different one in distant Arabia) were known in any part of the Roman Empire at the time of Jesus - or for that sake anywhere and any time on Earth and in history, in spite of the Quran's claims about being an old god and for the whole world).
Well, in a free country you are free to believe in whatever you want, even in the Quran - if you are able to.
####### Another - and serious - point is that to "explain" that the Quran means something different from what it really says, is to corrupt it.
Also: What is sure, is that no god ever made a holy book as full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, unclear language, etc. like the Quran. ##### Besides: Which one of the 20-30 known versions accepted by Islam of the Quran (see 15/9c) - if any - is in case the correct one?
Finally: Always when you read the Quran, Hadiths, and other Islamic books, you should remember that Muhammad accepted the use of and himself used dishonesty in many forms in words and deeds. Even if the names are younger, it was he who institutionalized dishonesty like al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), the use of deceit ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is war), betrayal (f.x. the peace delegation from Khaybar), and even the disuse of oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the star case 3/54 (if Allah could cheat, cheating is ok)), which also includes the disuse of words and promises, as they are weaker than oaths = when oaths can be disused, so can words and promises. On top of this it is very clear from the Quran and all other central Islamic books, that Muhammad also liked respect and power and women. Combine these lusts with his acceptance of and personal use of dishonesty - even the gravest kinds: How reliable are that kind of men normally? - and how true and reliable are their never proved claims and tales?
¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤
012 1/3c: "(Allah is*) Most Gracious, Most Merciful". According to the Bible Yahweh is better - especially in the New Covenant. And: Where is Allah Most Garcious and Most Merciful in deeds, and not only in words?
013 2/70c: "- - - if Allah wills". See 14/19d below. But beware that just here and some other places in the Quran it may be the standard Muslim reservation meaning something like "I want to do so-and-so if Allah permits". Beware that Allah may be spiteful if you do not say this about things you plan to do in the future.
014 2/85c: "For Allah is not unmindful of what ye (people*) do". The carrot and the stick - be good and obedient and go to Paradise, or be bad or disobedient to Muhammad and end in Hell. Remember here that "good" and "bad" is meant according to the Quran's partly immoral moral code - it f.x. was/is very good to steal/rob, extort, suppress, enslave, destroy, rape, and kill in the name of Allah for Muhammad/Allah, and give Muhammad his 20%, but very bad to refuse this. (Actually such misdeeds are even more disgusting when done in the name of and as a sermon/service to a god - and we do not tell what we mean about people or a religion calling this a good and benevolent god, as we do not use that kind of words).
015 2/89h: “Allah is the enemy to those who reject Faith”. Whereas Yahweh leaves his flock in a safe place to try to save the lost ones. Quite a difference between the two books. And between the two claimed gods.
016 2/105f: "- - - Allah is the Lord of grace abounding". See 1/1a above - can this claim be true?
017 2/163a: "And your (Muslims'*) God is One God - - -". See 2/255a, 6/106b and 25/18abelow.
018 2/255b: "(Allah*) - - - the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal". Perhaps - if he exists.
019 3/2b: "- - - (Allah*), the Living - - -". There only are Muhammad's words for this - a man believing in using lies (al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie - and Kitman - the lawful half-truth, etc.), deceit ("war is deceit" - and everything is jihad), betrayal, and even broken words/promises/oaths (2/224e-f, 2/224-225, 5/89a+b, 16/91e,66/2a). And a man lying even in the Quran (f.x. 6/7a, 6/28c, 7/146f, and 20/70a to mention some - Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people to believe that such proof would not have effect. Also see the chapter about Muhammad lying in the Quran in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" - http://www.1000mistakes.com ). And also a man who liked power, respect, and women. Such men often have proved unreliable. (Not to mention: A man modern science suspects was mentally ill - TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy).)
020 3/2c: "- - - (Allah is*) Eternal". Often claimed, never proved - not even his very existence is proved.
021 3/162b: "- - - the wrath of Allah - - -". Once more we are back to the old fact that the only claim for Allah's very existence rests on a man believing in dishonesty when this paid, and on the same man's book full of mistakes, etc. If Allah does not exist, there is no wrath of Allah. And just to mention it: There never has been even one proved case of his wrath - many claims, but not one proved case. Not one.
022 4/64e: "- - - the Will of Allah". As the Quran is not from any god, it is not possible to know what the will of Allah is - if he exists - as there is no reliable source of such information. Besides: If the Quran is not from Allah, then who's will does it express? Muhammad's?
######023 5/35g: “- - - strive with might and main (see 5/35a-b*) in His (Allah’s*) cause - - -”. For us this is one of the most detestable points in the entire Quran and Islam: Fight and steal and rob and mutilate and rape and enslave and hate and murder and get rich and suppress in the name of your god, and as a service to your god - a claimed good and benevolent god!
The same god as Yahweh? Jesus and Muhammad in the same religion? Don't ask silly questions.
024 6/103a: "He (Allah*) is above all comprehension - - -". Not if he is a made up god.
025 7/201a: "- - - bring Allah to remembrance, when lo! They see (right)!" Not if they rely on the Quran - Allah's presumed book - as too much is wrong in it. A god does not make mistakes and even less in the high numbers of plural - there simply is no god behind such a book.
026 7/206: "- - - bow down before Him (Allah*)". An undocumented god? - or a superstition? - or a dressed up pagan god? - or simply a dreamed up false god, made up mental idol?
027 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.
What kind of omnipotent, good and benevolent god is this?
##028 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” and "morality" 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? - and the stealing?
*029 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).
###War mongering for religion is one more strong proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion. What kind of inhuman god is Allah?
##030 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.
###Yet another 120% proof for that Yahweh an Allah are not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion: The differences are too many, too deep, and too fundamental (except perhaps if the god is deeply schizophrenic, helpless and sadistic).
031 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 - and if the repentance you feel, is because Allah has predestined it so, the whole play is a farce. Also see 9/103a above.
032 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) - and is reliable and not using al-Taqiyya, etc.
033 10/18e: "And far is He (Allah*) above partners they (humans*) ascribe (to Him (Allah*))". Not unless he exists. Not to mention if he exists not, but another - f.x. Yahweh - does.
034 10/37i: "- - - (Allah is*) the Lord of the Worlds." Often claimed, never documented.
#035 10/68g: "Say ye about Allah what ye know not?" We say very little about Allah, except that he never has proved neither his claimed powers nor his existence. But we say a lot about the Quran, as so many things are wrong in it - and the most essential of those points is that a book with so much wrong, is not from a god. It is heresy and a deep insult and slander to any god to blame him/her for making a book of a quality and an intellectual and scientific level like the Quran. Our educated guess is that every second good writer of historical novels and a good number of other good writers, not to mention scientist of history or religion with "a good pen", could have written a better quality book.
036 10/107a: This verse contains some more of the many, many, never proved claims you find in the Quran about Allah - claims any person in any religion as easily and as cheaply can use for his own god(s). Invalid/wrong claims unless Islam proves the opposite.
037 10/109d: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Best to decide." Only if he exists and if the Quran is from a god - and if Allah in addition is a god (and Allah f.x. not from the dark forces - - - if he exists).
038 11/7e: "- - - His (Allah's*) Throne was over the Waters - - -". This may be from the Bible, because there (1. Mos. 1/2-7) it has a meaning. In the Quran it has no relevance, and Muslims have problems finding reasons for why the throne was over the waters. The explanation you are most likely to meet, is that it was because Allah made all living things from water - a claim which contradicts many other places in the Quran, where Allah created the living beings in many different ways, and not least does it contradict reality which says life was not made from water, but in water. We must admit that to us it tells something when the Quran in 21/30 tells the living beings are made from water, and many even top Muslim writers then tell that here science backs the Quran, because science tells life started in water! Very impressive - there is a huge difference between "from water" and "in water" - but what is a small Kitman (lawful half-truth, though in this case a regular lie - an al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie)) when it comes to forwarding Islam?! It really tells something about Muslims and about Islam - and about reliability. Further: The first many millions of years Earth was too hot for water, and even afterwards it took some hundreds of millions years before life started - a long time even for a god to sit on his throne waiting.
###039 14/10a: "Is there a doubt about Allah - - -?" Yes, there clearly is:
- The absolute only source for the claims of his existence, the Quran, is a book so full of mistakes, contradictions, etc. that it is highly unreliable.
- This book was dictated by a man with lust for power, a moral which was pretty amoral - cfr. his acceptance of lying (f.x. al-Taqiyya, Kitman and breaking of oaths), thieving, enslaving, womanizing/rape, murder, etc. - and possibly with a mental illness (TLE?).
- It is claimed that the religion is from Adam and before, but not one single trace of any kind of something like Islam, older than 610 AD exists anywhere.
- There never was any kind of reliable proof for any of the claims - including the existence of Allah. Absolutely nothing."
- Allah has never - neither before Muhammad, nor during Muhammad's life, nor after Muhammad given one single reliable sign showing that he exists".
- The only possible conclusion is that there are good reasons for strong doubts about Allah's existence.
- And even if he should exist, there are good reasons for strong doubts about how he wants his followers to behave - partly because there is so much difference between Islam before 622 AD and after 622 AD, when Muhammad started to need warriors, and partly because so much is wrong in the book, that also the claims about a possible Allah easily may be wrong.
- Not one single claim is proved in Islam - not even the existence of the claimed god, the former pagan god al-Lah.
- All the mistaken facts and other mistakes in the Quran prove 110% and more that it is not from any god - no omniscient god makes such and so many mistakes (which is why Muslims cannot afford to see the mistakes no matter how obvious they are).
- All the contradictions in the Quran have the same 110% effect.
- All the invalid logic also has the same 110% effect - so only on these 3 points you have 330% proofs that the Quran is not from a god.
- The language many places are unclear or with 2 or more possible ways of understanding a point. No god would use unclear language in his holy book.
- A lot of points in the book were difficult or impossible to understand for people not from that region - Arabisms. No universal god would make his holy book in ways not possible for all to understand unless they were known in a small region of Earth. Humans might make such mistakes, but not an omniscient god.
- The horrible and immoral parts of the Quran's moral code may indicate that the real maker of the Quran belongs to some dark forces. Who wants to believe in a religion perhaps made up by f.x. a devil impersonating Gabriel?
- The immoral and unethical parts of the ethical code, means a not good and benevolent god.
- The parts of sharia which are unjust and/or immoral, give the same thoughts as the sentence above.
- The Quran contains not a few cases of boasting or bluffs. Who needs to use bluffs? - the cheat and deceiver, not an omnipotent god.
- The Quran contains some places where Muhammad is lying. How true is a religion which needs lies? And who needs to use lies? - the cheat and deceiver.
- All the points in the Quran where it is used wrong science - science believed in at the time of Muhammad - indicates very clearly that the Quran is made by humans living at the time of Muhammad - perhaps by Muhammad himself.
- Islam is a war religion - the claim "the religion of peace" is an al-Taqiyya (a lawful lie) - and who believes a "good and benevolent" god runs a religion of dishonesty, stealing, apartheid, rape, suppression, and war?
- The Quran is entirely based on the words of a man with a very doubtful moral - Lying, breaking even his oaths, deceiving, stealing, raping, and a lot more - and a man wanting power and riches (for "gifts" to buy more followers and to keep some of the ones he had - clear from central Islamic books) - and not to mention women (one knows the name of 36 women he had more or less regular sex with (see the chapters about Muhammad under www.1000mistakes.com - and those are the ones one knows the names of).
040 15/92-93a: "Therefore, by (indicating an oath*) the Lord (Allah*), we will, of a surety, call them (some sinners*) to account, For all their deeds". Is it here Allah who is speaking? - but in that case Allah here swears an oath by Allah - somewhat special. Or is it Muhammad who is longing for to bring his opponents to account?
041 16/1h: "- - - far is He (Allah*) above having the partners (likely the other gods of the pagan Arabs, but non-Arab gods and Jesus may be included*) they (the pagan Arabs and perhaps the Christians*) ascribe unto Him (Allah*)!" By using this formula - and he uses it often - Muhammad indicates that Allah is the god everyone everywhere knows about or at least was known from the old, but that many have added other gods in addition to him. This picture is false - except for in Arabia where many had al-Lah (also named Allah sometimes) as one of their gods - the same pagan god Muhammad dressed up and called only Allah - the rest of the world had other gods not in addition to, but instead of Allah, and most did not even know about al-Lah/Allah. They had their oven gods and they were self-sufficient and not added to Allah. But psychologically a good sentence for Muhammad and his preaching. Also see 25/18a below.
042 16/9d: "- - - He (Allah*) could have guided all of you (man*)." If this had been true, what would it tell about the good and benevolent god that he let and lets millions of humans and jinns end in Hell each year, just because he will not guide them? - Not to mention if all that is a result of his predestination!?
043 16/51c: "- - - fear Me (Allah*) and Me alone". There is no reason to fear him unless he exists. If he exists and is behind the Quran, he is no god - too much is wrong in that book for a god to have ever been involved - but he may belong to the dark forces and simply cheated Muhammad. In this case he may be dangerous - at least in a perhaps next life.
#####044 16/52e: "- - - then will ye (people*) fear other than Allah?". Simply yes. For the simple reason we do not believe Allah exists. The only claims - and no facts, only claims and fast words - about his existence are from a man with a very doubtful moral and reliability, who on top of all perhaps was mentally ill (TFL - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), and who liked power and riches for more power - and women - and who liked/needed a platform of power, something many a scheming man have found in religion. There are thousands who through the times have used an existing religion as a ladder to riches and power - and for that case to women - and hundreds who have started new sects or religions - Muhammad did something in between, which also is not uncommon. The only special thing about Muhammad, is that he was the most successful of these many men and a few women.
On top of this all the errors, etc. in the Quran prove 110% to any person with a not damaged brain - f.x. from brainwashing - and an IQ not below medium imbecility, that the Quran is not from any god, and thus that something is seriously wrong with Muhammad, with the Quran, and with Islam.
045 16/57a: "And they (pagan Arabs at the time of Muhammad*) assign daughters for Allah!" Many believed angels were daughters of Allah, but more central is that the three main goddesses - just below the main god al-Lah or sometimes named Allah - al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat, officially were his daughters in the old pagan Arab religion from where Muhammad took his god".
##046 16/90i: "He (Allah*) instructs you (Muslims*), that ye may receive admonition". Not possible to receive from him unless he exists and is a god - and may be better not receive from him if he exists and belongs to the dark forces (Muhammad would not have a chance to see the difference if he in case dressed up like someone good.)
047 16/93b: “If Allah so willed, He could make you all one People - - -”. See 11/118b above. But why does he not do so? - this is the official goal for Islam, and this other way it takes millennia and millions of lives and immeasurable tragedy, all on behalf of a claimed benevolent god.
048 17/8g: "- - - and We (Allah*) have made Hell a prison for those who reject (all Faith)". Is this another indication for that in reality it is Allah who is behind Hell? What kind of "good and benevolent god" is he in case?.
049 18/38: "- - - He is Allah, my (a Muslim's*) Lord, and none shall I associate with my Lord". Impossible to associate anything with him in reality if he does not exist. And as the rumors about his existence only - only - is based on a book full of errors, dictated by a man with very doubtful moral, maybe he really does not exist. In that case - or if he belongs to the dark forces - it might be an idea to look around if there is a real god - or gods - somewhere.
050 18/105f: "- - - nor shall We (Allah*), on the Day of Judgment, give them (non-Muslims*) any weight". The minimum requirement for giving or not giving them any weight, is that Allah exists and is not a made up - pagan - god.
051 19/40a: "It is We (Allah*) Who will inherit the earth - - -". A claim - like "always" in the Quran not proved, and in this case also not provable except by supernatural means.
052 19/64: "- - - (Allah*) never doth forget - - -". Why does he then so many places in the Quran need a book or a record?
053 19/65f: "- - - knowest thou of any who is worth of the same Name as He (Allah*)" We honestly do not know if he is worthy a name at all, as there never was a proof neither for his existence, nor for his power - only lofty words. And then there is the recurring question of Yahweh, which the Quran admits existed, but who is not the same god as Allah, as the basics of the religions are too different - - - and the excuse about falsified Bible is invalid as science - and Islam (by never finding a falsified document among the relevant old ones) - has proved this untrue.
054 19/68a: “So, by thy Lord (Allah*) - - -". Allah is swearing by himself (most sentences in the Quran starting with "by", are oaths).
055 20/108b: "- - - the Caller - - -". Allah - but contradicted by the Bible, which says it means Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
056 21/23a: "He (Allah*) cannot be questioned for His acts". This is correct if he does not exist, or alternatively if he exists, and the Quran has told the full truth and only the truth on this point, in spite of not being delivered by a god.
*057 21/91c: “- - - and We (the Allah*) made her (Mary’s*) son (Jesus*) a Sign for all peoples.” Very correct according to the Bible - but a sign for Yahweh/God, not for Allah - not unless Islam proves Allah is the same god as Yahweh/God. And the two religions and the two gods - especially the war god Allah from the surahs from Medina compared to the benevolent God from NT - are too different for that to be possible - not unless the god is seriously ill mentally.
Definitely not a proof for Allah. But a proof for Yahweh/God if the old books tell the truth on this point.
058 21/105a: "Before this We (Allah*) wrote in the Psalms, after the Message (given to Moses) - - -". It must have been quite some time after the Message - there are some 200 years between Moses (around 1235 BC) and David (around 1000 BC)- and in reality more as the psalms are younger than David according to science. May be some 500 years after Moses. Besides: According to the Bible the god of the Jews was Yahweh, not Allah - and the Bible does not say that the psalms are divine made ones.
059 22/1a: "O Mankind! Fear your Lord (Allah*)!" Muhammad claimed Allah was the god of the entire world. At present he is the nominal god - existing or not existing - for roughly 20% of the world's population (the actual number is very uncertain, but some 1.2 billion). But the number is increasing, partly because of active proselyting (and at the same time hinder or forbid proselyting for other religions or even for telling facts about the Quran or Muhammad in their own countries), and partly because Muslims produce many children - even in modern times when it has become clear that the production of food and other necessities are reaching limits (unless science makes new breakthroughs, but no such ones are expected shortly). One opposing tendency, though, is that 3. generation emigrants into other cultures seems to a degree to lose faith.
060 22/28a: "- - - celebrate the name of Allah - - -". A positive idea if Allah exists and is a god. A joke if he does not exist. A lousy idea if he exists and belongs to the dark forces.
061 22/32a: "- - - the symbols of Allah - - -". Here referring to the rites of the pilgrimage - the hajj - in Mecca, likely especially to the ones connected to the sacrifice of animals.
If Yahweh and Allah had been the same god, it had been somewhat peculiar that the god liked such sacrifices in the OT, but dropped it in the New Covenant and the teaching of Jesus - for them to reinstall it shortly (at least shortly for a god) afterwards. A god with no clear ideas for what he wants?
Most of the rituals during Hajj are taken over from the old pagan Arab religion. It is peculiar if pagan rites are symbols of a monotheistic god, and as peculiar that only the Arab pagan religion "happened" to have the correct rites. There are no similar rites in NT; not the same god, Jesus and Muhammad far from in the same religion.
Also the rites are very primitive - fit old pagan religions. Of course one can claim symbolism - one can claim symbolism from the story of Al Capone, Baron von Münchausen, Adolph Hitler, and Donald Duck - but also the symbolisms in the rites are primitive ones, fitting primitive, naive minds. Throw stones at "the Devil", walk the old magic number of 7 times around the Kabah, kill some defenceless animals, etc.
Both the rites and the claimed symbols tell a lot about Islam.
062 22/32b: "- - - such honor (to sacrifice animals*) - - -". What kind of a god thinks it is an honor to him that animals are killed for him? Not even an earthly king or tribal chief thinks of that as an honor. He may like the hospitality in the good food a slaughtering may result in, but none ever look at the slaughter itself as an honor. Yahweh after all - according to the Bible - had the rational (?) reason that he liked the smell of roasted meat when it was placed on the fire afterwards.
Can the killing have anything to do with the old superstition you find in some primitive cultures - and a superstition known in what we call the Middle East in the old times - that if you totally destroyed something in the name of your god, you had given it to the god?
Also see 22/32a.
063 22/32c: "- - - such honor (to sacrifice animals*) should come truly from the piety of heart". The sacrifices are to prove this piety of heart - but how come that an omniscient god needs the slaughtering of animals to believe you?"
Also see 22/32a.
064 22/34e: "- - - submit then your (Muslim's*) will to Him (Allah*) (in Islam) - - -". A bit risky without first checking if Allah exists and is a god, and if Islam is reality or made up - too many facts are wrong for the ones not blinded by belief. Not to mention: What if the theory that Gabriel in reality was someone from the dark forces in disguise like Gabriel?
Was it a coincident that Muhammad never was able to prove that he represented a god?
065 22/38d: "- - - Allah loveth not any that is a traitor to faith - - -". If Allah does not exist, he loves nobody. If he exists and is a god, whom he loves will depend entirely on how his religion is, and the Quran is no guide to this, as no god ever was involved in a book with that much, mistaken facts and other errors. And if he exists, but belongs to the dark forces, it is anybody’s guess whom he loves.
066 22/78l: "- - - hold fast to Allah!" Risky if he does not exist, or if he belongs to the dark forces.
067 23/91e: "(He (Allah*) is free) from the (sort of) things they (non-Muslims*) attribute to him". The Bible disagrees not a little with the Quran on many points - like here. Which one of them is most reliable?
Besides: If Allah does not exist, he is free from everything.
068 23/92b: "- - - too high is He (Allah*) for the partners they (non-Muslims*) attribute to Him!" This is a claim Muhammad often repeats in the Quran, but never proves - neither that Allah is too high (yes, not even that he exists), nor that he did not want company - if he exists. Also see 25/18a below.
069 24/25c: “- - - Allah (as described in the Quran*) is the (very) Truth - - -“. Wrong. With all the mistakes, etc. the Quran (Allah’s words) at best is partly true. Also see 13/1g above.
070 24/35a: "Allah is the Light of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth". A good claim - but where is the proof? - nothing is proved about Allah, not even his existence. There only are words from a man believing in the use of lies and deceit if that gave a better result, and liking power, wealth for bribes - and women.
071 25/58b: "- - - Him (Allah*) Who lives - - -". This only is true if he exists.
072 28/49a: “Then bring ye (non-Muslims*) a Book (the Quran*) from Allah - - -". A very easy demand for Muhammad to put forth, especially if he knew Allah did not exist.
073 28/70a: "And He is Allah". Only if he exists. And he in case only is a god if he is a god and not something else.
*074 29/45h: “- - - remembrance of Allah is the greatest (thing in life) without doubt.” There is much doubt about this, if he has composed the Quran - the mistakes prove he in case is very far from omniscience, the valueless “signs” and “proofs” proves he is not very good at logical thinking, and his use of invalid excuses and his inability to send proofs of his existence, proves he is not omnipotent. And if someone else made the Quran, the doubt is even greater, as then both the Quran and Islam are without any value at all - or with negative value, as much of the religion is rather inhuman (f.x. wars, terrorism, suppression of all non-Muslims, suppression of women and freedom to rape many of them, thoughts about slavery, and enmity towards non-Muslims, and more).
075 31/12g: "- - - Allah is free of all wants - - -". At least if he does not exist.
076 31/26d: "- - - Allah is He (that is) free of all wants - - -". At least if he does not exist.
##077 31/30a: “That is because Allah is the (only) Realty - - -”. Is Allah really a reality? All the tales about him derives from just one man - a man even canonized Islamic history tells for long time lived as a chief highwayman and from robbing and extortion (for kidnapped salesmen, and others). A man initiating assassinations and murders on his opponents (f.x. Asma bint Marwan (female poet), al-Nadr, Abu Uzza, and Ocba after the battle of Badr, Abu Afaq (said to be over 100 years old), Kab ibn al-Ashraf, Ibn Sunayana, Othman bin Moghira, Abi ‘l Huqayq, and not to forget Kinana b. l-Rabi, whom he tortured to death to find riches, and afterwards he personally raped Kinana's 17 year old, newlywed wife Safijja (Muhammad was approaching 60 then). A man who initiated mass murder - once some 700 helpless male prisoners, and made all their children and women slaves - one of them, the mentioned Safijja bint Huayay (and another time Rayhana bint Amr), for his own personal use), a rapist with permission from Allah for himself and all his men to rape (“have sexual connections with” to use more polite words) all female slaves and captives - girls and women - who were not pregnant (this tells something about Allah, too). A man who initiated raids and wars and got 20% or more of all spoils of war, included slaves (though not all for his personal use). And a man lusting for power - easy to see both from the Quran and from Hadith. And a man - and a god - entirely unable to produce one iota of a real proof for the tales. (Sources: Among others: Ibn Hisham and Ibn Ishaq - both most respected by Islam for biographies about Muhammad. Ibn Ishaq‘s “The Life of Muhammad“ is the most respected of the old ones of all Muhammad biographies in Islam - written for the caliph in Baghdad around 750 AD - and commented on around 900 Ad by Ibn Hisham. Plus the Quran and Hadiths – Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
Only this man told the tales in the Quran - tales that on top of all have hundreds and hundreds of mistakes, at least hundreds of lose statements and hundreds of invalid “signs” and “profs”, etc. And lose statements, claims, and invalid “signs”/”proofs”, not to forget that most of his tales were from made up sources - apocryphal scriptures, legends, fairy tales, etc - ARE the hallmarks of cheats and deceivers, and of persons without true arguments.
A good and perfect man, according to Islam. If that is true, we hope never to meet a bad Muslim.
But a man normal people would say was dubious or stronger, and with a dubious morality. Is a dubious man with dubious morality and who is unable to produce the slightest proof, but for a lot of airy and partly illogical excuses for this inability, and even “signs” and “proofs” without value, plus at least some lies even in the Quran itself (like that real miracles would make no-one believe), is this such a man who tells just and only the undeniable and full truth?
And the only indication Islam has for the reality of Allah is the tales of that kind of a man. (This is in reality a main reason why Islam has to pretend thet Muhammad was perfect and without any spot - if not the Quran is untrue and Islam a made up religion.)
078 33/28-33b: One question: Do private stuff like this belong in a holy book? - or as part of a religion?
079 33/53l: "- - - in Allah's sight an enormity". Allah's or Muhammad's?
080 34/50f: "- - - (Allah*) is (ever) near". One more of Muhammad's never proved claims.
081 35/13d: "Such is Allah your Lord - - -". One more of Muhammad's many never documented claims - claims any believer in any religion can make free of charge on behalf of his god(s).
082 35/15b: "- - - Allah is the One Free of all wants - - -". Easily explainable if he does not exist.
083 35/30d: "- - - (Allah is*) Most Ready to appreciate (service)". One more of the never proved claims of Muhammad.
084 39/3e: "Truly Allah will judge - - -". Only possible if he exists and is something supernatural (but beware that he also can "judge" if he in case belongs to the dark forces.)
085 39/4a: "Had Allah wished to take Himself a son - - -". Who knows what a god wishes? - remember that the Quran and its mistakes are not from any god, and neither devils nor humans (the only possible makers of the Quran) know everything a god may wish. Also see 14/19d above.
086 39/36a: "Is not Allah enough for His servant?" No - at least not if he does not exist - there only is Muhammad's unproved words for his existence (see the comment to 34/8b and 39/32c above).
*087 40/31c: “- - - Allah never wishes injustice to His Servants.” Wrong. One star example: The Islamic law that tells that a woman who is raped is to be severely punished/stoned for indecency/unlawful sex if she cannot produce 4 male witnesses that actually saw the rape, probably is the most unjust law that ever existed in an even half civilized society. Extreme injustice.
088 40/65a: "He (Allah*) is the Living (One) - - -". There has never in all the history of Islam been a proof for this.
089 42/11d: "- - - there is nothing whatever like unto Him (Allah*) - - -". There is the nagging question: What about f.x. Yahweh - a god the Quran admits exists, even though it wrongly mixes him up with Allah? This question becomes even stronger as Allah never was able to prove anything at all - not even his own existence - whereas Yahweh has proved both his existence and his power many times if the Bible and/or the Quran tell(s) the truth about this.
090 42/23i: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Ready to appreciate (service)". If he exists, if he is a major god, and if he is correctly described in the Quran.
091 42/51a: "It is not fitting for a man that Allah should speak to him (directly*)". Why not? A superior god is above nonsense like social standing in a society.
092 42/51b: "It is not fitting for a man that Allah should speak to him (directly*)". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that at least Yahweh on several occasions spoke directly to men f.x. Adam, Abraham, Moses and Samuel and not to forget Jesus. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. 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 lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
093 43/61e: "- - - follow ye (people/Muslims/Muhammad?) Me (Allah*) - - -". Normally it is not advisable to follow someone who has nothing to show for his big and incredible words but claims for blind belief - and especially so when the self proclaimed messenger is a person of doubtful moral even according to his own religion's books, and on top of all is believing in the use of dishonesty and deceit and even broken words/promises/oaths - - - and liking power, riches for more power - and women.
094 44/49: "Truly wast thou (inmates of Hell*) mighty, full of honor!" If you read the Quran, you will see that Muhammad normally stressed that victims of Allah's punishment were mighty and powerful people. This made his god look greater and mightier. But why does a claimed omniscient god need to be enlarged? And how do you really enlarge such a god? - not in in reality pathetic ways like this at least.
Another possible - or additional - motif for hazzeling the rich and mighty, is the fact that for many years - until well after it started to pay well to follow Muhammad - his followers mainly were from the poor classes, and damning the rich ones to hell, was pep-talk for his poor followers.
095 45/33-35: These three verses only are true if Allah exists, is a major god and in addition is correctly described in the Quran.
096 48/6c: "- - - an evil opinion of Allah". What is an evil opinion if he does not exist? - or if he exists, but is such a feeble being that he is unable to prove neither his power nor his existence? Not to mention if he belongs to the dark forces?
097 51/7-8: "By the Sky with (its) numerous Paths Truly ye (non-Muslims* are in a doctrine discordant". The Quran hers swears by the sky - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths. But remember that oaths can be broken in Islam - at worst you have to pay expiation to Allah. (Well if you do not only swear but also confirm the oath the best is not to break it - at least expiation will be more expensive).
098 52/1-6: These verses make up one big oath where Allah swears that his Day of Doom will come and that no-one can avert it (52/7-8). One problem is that in Islam oaths can be broken - pay expiation if necessary. Another is that Allah can do nothing here unless he exists, and if he in case is not a major god.
099 53/52a: "And - - - (Allah destroyed*) the people of Noah - - -". Contradicted by the Bible which says this was done by Yahweh (Muhammad claimed and Islam claims that these just were 2 names for the same god, but their teachings and the basic ideas behind their religions are too different for that to be possible.) 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 lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
100 54/8a: "- - - the Caller - - -". Allah. But contradicted by the Bible, which says the caller will be Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. 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 lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
101 55/27a: "But will abide (for ever) the Face of ty (Muslims'*/humans'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". = Allah (or literally his face) will live forever. If he exists. And if he is something supernatural.
102 57/8a: "What cause have ye (non-Muslims*) why ye should not believe in Allah?". Well to mention a few of the reasons:
Well, these at least were a few reasons why not to believe in Allah and in Muhammad's religion - at least not until something is proved.
103 59/23e: "- - - (Allah is*) the Holy One - - -". This is claimed all over the Quran, but never proved one single time - not even his very existence is proved.
104 59/23-24: Many and panegyric words about Allah. If they are true, they are true. If they are not true, they do not become truer from using many of them. And it does not help that the Quran is not from a god - it both is heresy and slander and an insult to a god to claim he has made a book where so much is wrong. Islam has serious hallmarks for being a made up religion.
105 60/1j: "- - - My (Allah's*) Good Pleasure - - -". Impossible unless he exists and is something supernatural.
106 61/11g: "- - - in the Cause of Allah - - -". When so much is wrong in the Quran, and when the book pretends, but with all its mistakes is not, from any god , is this right? Or was it in the cause of Muhammad? - or perhaps in the cause of some dark forces, like the moral code of the book may indicate?
107 62/1d: "- - - (Allah*) the Sovereign, the Holy One - - -". This only may be true if he exists and in addition is a god, none of which is ever proved.
108 62/1e: "- - - (Allah*) the Sovereign, the Holy One - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the sovereign - and holy - god. 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 lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
109 64/17e: "- - - Allah is Most Ready to appreciate (service)". Once more: Only if he exists and is something supernatural - white or dark.
110 65/3b: "- - - sufficient is Allah for him (the Muslim*)". He may be right if Allah exists and is a god. He is wrong if Allah exists, but represents dark forces pretending to be a god - Muhammad would have no chance to see the difference (many harsh parts of the Quran may indicate this). He also is wrong if Allah does not exist.
111 66/10a: "Allah sets forth - - -". This he only can do if he exists.
112 67/16: "- - - He (Allah*) Who is in heaven - - -". Similar often claimed, but never documented. Like so often in the Quran there only are claims and words - and even only the words of a not too reliable person. We may add that according to Hadiths he is above the 7. heaven.
113 68/39a: "- - - have ye (non-Muslims*) a Covenant with Us (Allah*) - - -". If Allah does not exist, a covenant has no meaning - better is a covenant with an existing god (if one exists). If he is a camouflaged something from dark forces, like parts of the Quran may indicate, one is better off without such a covenant. If he exists and is a god: Do Muslims have a covenant with him? - there only are claims for this in a very unreliable book. Besides living according to the Quran, Muslims do not live according to the teachings of a good and benevolent god - they are living according to a made up book from(?) a real or made up god of war.
114 70/28a: "For their (Muslims'*) Lord's (Allah's*) displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity". In more plain language: Allah likes peace and tranquillity, and dislikes - or punishes with - the opposite. BUT NB: This was in 621-622 AD in Mecca, before Muhammad started to gain power and started first as a leader of highway-men and then as a warlord, and Allah discovered he liked war and blood and riches and power. In the 13 years in Mecca, Islam was a rather peaceful religion. But during the first part of the 10 years in Medina, it turned into a religion of war, and this verse lost its meaning - at least as long as Muslims were the perpetrators and non-Muslims the victims.
Muhammad in Medina proves that this quote is dishonesty.
Also the fact that the highest possible service to Allah - and Muhammad - is to take part in raids and wars, proves that something is seriously dishonest and seriously wrong. As this is said before (614-617 AD) Muhammad changed his religion to a thieving, suppression, and war religion in Medina in 622 - 624 AD, Muhammad may have meant what he said in Mecca that time. But there is no way around that he knew that either his first claim (that Allah = peace and tranquillity) or his later claim (Allah loves robbing, strife, and blood) is a lie, and a lie in the Quran (there actually are more than one of these kinds).
115 72/28a: "- - - (so*) that He (Allah*) may know that they (messengers - included Muhammad*) have (truly) brought and delivered the Messages of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Why did Allah need a number of angels for each messenger to check what they said and not said, if he was omniscient?
116 72/28b: "- - - (so*) that He (Allah*) may know that they have (truly) brought and delivered the Messages of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". No god was ever involved in the delivery of a message of a quality like the Quran.
#117 76/9: "We (Muslims*) feed you for the sake of Allah alone - - -". Here is one of the differences between the Quran and NT: In the Quran you do good deeds to gain merit from Allah , and according to this verse for this alone. In NT you do good deeds partly to help fellow humans, and partly to gain merit. But beware that we here are speaking about the teachings. In praxis many a Muslims helps also in order to help fellow humans. But if this is done from personal morality and humanity, it is not a part of the religion (just check before you protest - every place in the Quran where one is recommended to help the poor and others, the motif given is to gain merit in heaven). Also see 76/8a above.
118 89/22: "And thy (people’s*) Lord (Allah*) commeth - - -". Often claimed, never proved - - - and not possible unless Allah does exist (see 89/15a above).
It also is pretty thought provoking that f.x. all the errors, contradictions, wrong facts, etc., only and alone, in the Quran, prove 100% that there is no god behind that book. And that f.x. the fact that Jesus accepted OT as correct, proves to both Christians and Muslims that the OT was not falsified at that time - and that the Qumran scrolls prove that even OT was not falsified any time later, too.
It further is an insult to that possible god to "explain" that his texts means something different from what they really says = you are more clever than him at explaining what the god "really" meant, than the god is himself, even when he tries to explain things "clearly and easy to understand", and says his words are to be understood literally and without hidden meanings. Also: Only "the sick of heart" look for hidden meanings behind his words, according to the Quran - the very claimed hidden meanings the wise Muslims claim are what Allah really meant, but was unable to express clearly himself, so that they have to help the bumbling god and tell what he "really" tried to say. This in spite of that the Quran clearly states that meanings hidden behind Allah's clear and easy to understand words, only are possible for Allah to understand, and like said above are "only for the sick of heart" to look for.
May be as bad: To claim that the Quran means something different from what the texts clearly say, is to falsify and/or corrupt the quranic texts.
