Allah in the Quran, Chapter 61
01 Jan 2015
HELP FROM ALLAH
001 This really is a parallel to the chapter REWARDS FROM ALLAH, and our comments to this chapter are similar. We add, though, that there never was a proved case of Allah helping anybody at all - lots and lots of claims, the most famous of which is Muhammad's claims about divine help during the Battle of Badr, but not one proved case.
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 liked respect and power and women. Combine these lusts with his acceptance of and personal use of dishonesty - even the gravest kinds: How reliable is that kind of men normally? - and how true and reliable are their never proved claims and tales?

002 1/5: "- - - Thine (Allah's*) aid do we seek". It is to be hoped he exists - if not no aid is to be found.
003 2/107d: “And beside Him (Allah*) ye have neither patron nor helper.” But contradicted at least by this:
- 9/71: “The Believers, men and women, are protectors of one another - - -.”
- 41/31: “We (the angels*) are your protector in this life and in the Hereafter”.
004 2/214i: "Verily, the help from Allah is (always) near!" Often claimed, never proved. It definitely is no proved verity/truth. Not one single time in the entire history and prehistory is there proved that Allah has given anyone help - claims yes, proved case never. Guess if Islam had told about it if such a case had happened!
##005 3/28b: “Let not the believers take for friends or helpers unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah - - -.” Social pressure, but may be meant defensive originally, as it is from 625 AD before Muhammad gained full control in 630 AD. It is offensive today. This verse is contradicted (really made stricter) and often “killed” because it is too soft on non-Muslims, by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).
006 3/56d: "- - - nor will they (non-Muslims*) have anyone (but Allah*) to help". Wrong if they are Jews or Christians and if the Bible is reliable.
007 3/126c: "- - - there is no help except from Allah - - -". In the entire history there is not one single documented case of help from Allah to anyone. Not one. Claims and legends, but that is it.
008 3/150b: "- - - and He (Allah*) is the best of helpers". There has not been one single case of documented help from Allah to anyone in the entire history - be sure Islam had told about it if such a proved case had existed.
009 3/160a: "If Allah helps you (Muhammad/Muslims*) - - -". But there is no proved case in the entire history where Allah has helped anyone at all.
010 3/160b: "If Allah helps you (Muhammad/Muslims*), none can overcome you - - -". This is one of the claims where the correct answer entirely depends on if Allah exists and is a god - and that no stronger god in case exists.
011 8/10b: "- - - there is no help except from Allah". But is there from him? - he has never clearly proved it one single time in 1400 years.
012 8/10c: "- - - there is no help except from Allah". Contradicted by the Bible in clear words - it claims the main helper is 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 lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
013 8/26d: "- - - strengthened you (Muslims*) with His (Allah's*) aid - - -". There is nowhere in history a clear case of aid from Allah - you bet Muslims had told about it if there had been.
014 8/40b: "- - - Allah is your (Muslims'*) Protector - the Best to protect and the Best to help". If he exists and is a god approximately like the Quran claims. But remember that there is not one single documented case of help or protection from Allah throughout the times anywhere in the world - a number of claims, but not one documented case".
015 8/62c: "He (Allah*) it is that hath strengthened thee with His aid - - -". Frequently claimed, never clearly proved. In the entire history of Islam there is not one single proved case of aid or help from Allah. Many claims, but not one proved case.
016 9/25a: “Assuredly Allah did help you in many battlefields - - -.” Often claimed, never proved.
017 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.
018 25/31c: "- - - but enough is thy (Muhammad's/Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) to guide and to help." There has not in 1400 years been even one documented case of guidance or help from Allah. Lots of claims, but not one documented case.
019 29/10b: "- - - if help comes (to thee (people*) from thy Lord (Allah*) - - -". There has not been one single proved case of help from Allah in the entire history or prehistory. Guess if Muslims had told about it if such a case had existed! There have been lots of claims, but not one proved case.
020 30/5a: "With the help of Allah". But there never was a proved case of Allah helping anybody at all.
021 30/40c: "It is Allah Who has created you: further He has provided for your sustenance; then He will cause you to die - - -". See f.x. 11/7a and 30/27b above.
022 30/41b: "- - - that (Allah) may give them - - -". Like always in the Quran in such cases: A nice claim - never a proof. Words are cheap.
023 30/47h: "- - - it was due from Us (Allah*) to aid those who believed". The embarrassing fact is that no such aid has ever been proved given. Many claims, but not one single proved one - just ask Islam if there is a proved case.
024 33/9-10: There were a few cases where Muhammad claimed they had got help from Allah - but only claims, no real indication, not to mention a clear-cut case. Such claims are cheap.
025 35/39a: “He (Allah*) is it That has made you inheritors in the earth - - -”. Can anyone - Muslim or not - explain us where else earthlings without space travel could live, except in and on Earth?
026 45/12c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Bounty - - -". Everything you earn in an honest way by work or trade, or by stealing or robbing or murdering, are gifts from Allah's bounty according to the Quran - what you do yourself seems to be of less consequence - - - and may be it has to be like this in a religion where the god predestines everything you do according to its claimed holy book.
027 45/13a: "And He (Allah*) has subjected to you - - - all that is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -". See 45/12a-d above.
028 59/13c: "- - - terror - (sent) by Allah". There was never a proved case of anything sent by Allah - never. Lots of claims, but never a proved case. Not even terrorism. Something to remember for terrorists?
029 61/13b: “(And in war you will get*) help from Allah and a speedy victory.” See 61/12a above – and in addition you will not have to fight much, for the victory will be easy. Yes, "the religion of Peace".
030 61/13c: “(And in war you will get*) help from Allah and a speedy victory.” One more strong proof for that Yahweh - especially like you meet him in NT - is not the same god as Allah, and the same for that Jesus and Muhammad have few, if any, of deep moral, etc. similarities.
031 65/2h: "- - - (for Muslims*) He (Allah*) (ever) prepares a way out". If he exists and is something supernatural - - - and at all cares about lowly humans.
032 66/4g: "- - - and furthermore, the angels will back him (Muhammad*) up - - -". A point to remember when Muhammad explained Allah could not send down angels (to prove Allah's existence or Muhammad's connection to him), because that would mean the Day of Doom had come. It does not even belong in a book given to 124ooo (= 620 at any time for 5ooo years or 12-15 for 160-200ooo years. No traces from them found. Believe it if you can.) prophets and messengers through all times and places, like the Quran and Hadiths claim (the Quran does not give any number).
033 78/37a: "(Paradise is a gift from) the Lord (Allah*) - - -". Similar often claimed, never proved - - - and it is a normal claim for most religions, Islam included.
034 80/20a: "Then doth He (Allah*) make his (man's*) path smooth for him". This only is possible if Allah exists and have power - white or black ("White" in connections like this normally means "divine", and "black" means from "dark forces").
035 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).
036 108/1b: "- - - Fount (or river?*) (of Abundance) - - -". Unclear meaning as the Arab word which is used here, al-kawthar, also is the name of a river in Paradises (A108/1). This river Allah has promised Muhammad according to YA6286, and this verse may confirm this. Quite a gift for a desert dweller - and quite an Arabism.
037 110/1: "When comes the Help of Allah - - -". In the entire history there has not been one single piece of good luck which clearly was a help from Allah. (If there had been, you bet the Muslims had told you about it and showed you the proofs in every debate).
p>038 113/2-5: Different things you can pray to Allah for help against - but in vain unless Allah exists and in addition is a good and benevolent god - - - and is able to change his Plan.
