Allah in the Quran, Chapter 25

 

IT IS FOR ALLAH TO EXPLAIN

 

001 It is very clear in the Quran that the texts are claimed sent down from and formed by Allah. #####All the same one of the standard ways Islam and Muslims use to "explain" away errors or doubtful points in the Quran, is to claim - without proofs like normal for Islam/Muslims - that Allah in spite of the Quran's words that the texts are easy and clear, and thus to be understood literally, did not mean what he said, but something different. The intelligent and clever Muslims have to explain "what Allah "really" meant". The clumsy omniscient Allah frequently needs such help to make people understand what he "really" meant. (Often this is the only way to "explain" away mistaken facts, other errors, contradictions, etc.

002 But who but wishful thinkers and blind believers are able to believe that mere humans are better at knowing what a god "really" means, and better to explain those "real" meanings, than an omniscient, top intelligent god himself?

003 As this is a most central point in debates with Muslims, we include a number of samples.

004 #######If you after reading the quotes below, still are able to believe that Allah according to the Quran does not mean exactly what he says and explains, but that clever, intelligent Muslims have to explain what the clumsy god and his helpless words "really" means - and that this is the explanation for lots of errors and other bad points in the Quran, it is entirely up to you.

005 You will find comments about this - that it is for Allah to explain, and thus that the/his explanations of course are correct, reliable, and understandable - at least at these points: 3/7b, 3/7c, 3/7d, 3/7e, 3/138a, 6/55a, 6/114ca, 6/114da, 11/1b, 15/1b, 15/1d, 17/12h, 18/1d, 18/1e, 18/1g, 18/2a, 19/97b, 20/34b, 20/34c, 20/113b, 20/113c, 24/34b, 24/54j, 26/2a, 27/1b, 27/1c, 27/1d, 28/2, 30/2c, 30/28c, 36/69b, 37/117c, 39/28b, 41/3da, 43/2a, 43/2b, 43/3c, 43/29b, 44/2c, 44/2c, 44/13d, 44/58b, 54/17a, 54/17b, 54/22b, 54/40a, 55/2, 65/11f, 75/19. = 49 points - and likely there are more.

006 As you see at least 40-50 - and likely more than 50 as this list is not complete - places in the Quran it is said that Allah sent down texts easy for everybody to understand. Who is most reliable: The texts in the Quran, or Muslims explaining the texts are not right (in order to explain away errors in the book)?

############################### Another - and serious - point is that to "explain" that the Quran means something different from what it really says, is to falsify and 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 (and there were even more versions through the times) - is in case the correct one?

And: 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 + riches for bribes 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?

######

More down to the Earth: Muslims often explain away mistakes, etc. in the Quran, with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what are parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

######The Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran are clear, explained by Allah, and to be understood literally, you find f.x. these places: 3/7b, 3/138a, 6/114ca, 11/1b, 15/1d, 17/12h, 18/1d-e, 18/2a, 19/97b, 20/113b+c, 24/34, 24/54j, 26/2a, 27/1b-d, 28/2, 36/69e, 37/117c, 39/28b, 41/3da, 43/2a, 43/3c, 43/29b, 44/2b-c, 44/13d, 44/58b, 54/17a, 54/22b, 54/32a+b, 54/40a, 65/11f, and 75/19 - more than 30 places. Worth remembering each time a Muslim or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the text means something different from what it says. In such cases either the Muslim/Islam lies when he/she/it claims the text means something different from what it says (the claim often is that it is a parable or something), or the Quran lies when it says that the book uses clear and plain texts where nothing else is indicated.

The listed points are all collected here under 3/7b and 44/58b.

Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to explain what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims about such "explanations".)

008 WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

  1. Add to this that 3/7b tells that "those in whose heart is perversity follow the part thereof (of the Quran*) that is allegorical" and that "no one knows the hidden meaning (of the allegories*) except Allah".
  2. Add that 3/138a tells that the Quran "is a plain statement to men - - -". = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning.
  3. #########Add that 6/114ca says:"- - - He (Allah*) it is Who hath sent unto you (Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*) explained in detail - - -". If Allah has explained everything in detail, who can then explain it better - or explain that the clumsy Allah meant something different from what he said? But that is one of Islam's and Muslims' standard "explanations" for "explaining" away errors and difficult points in the Quran: When what the text says is wrong, impossible, horrible, or something, Allah cannot have meant what he said, but must have told a parable, allegory, metaphor, or something, without indicating so, "but we highly educated, intelligent Muslims can explain it better and tell you what Allah 'really' must have meant!!". EXPLAINING IT BETTER AND MORE CORRECT THAN ALLAH HIMSELF? - A CLAIMED GOD!!?
  4. Add that 11/1b tells that "- - - (the Quran is*) a Book with verses of basic or fundamental (of established (literal*) meaning), further explained in detail (by Allah*)". = the texts in the Quran are clear words of established (= literal) meaning from Allah, AND EXPLAINED BY ALLAH HIMSELF. WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER?.
  5. Add that 15/1d declares that it is "a Quran that makes things clear" = ALLAH HAS EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN PLAIN AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND WORDS TO MAKE EVERYTHING FULLY CLEAR - not one which hide basic and other facts or rules behind words of allegories, which are difficult to see if are allegories or plain speech, and on top of all a guesswork to extract the correct(?) meaning from.
  6. Add that 17/12h says: “- - - all things have We (Allah*) explained in detail”. There is no doubt that the Quran means everything is correctly explained = the texts in the book are to be understood literally.

  7. Add that 18/1d+e state that“ (Allah*) hath allowed therein (in the Quran*) no Crookedness.” = The language is clear and literal, without any tricks of hidden meanings, ACCORDING TO ALLAH.

  8. Add that 18/2a states that Allah has made it - the Quran and its language - "Straight (and Clear)". THIS ACCORDING TO ALLAH.
  9. Add that 19/97b tells that "- - - We (Allah*) made the (Quran) easy - - -". = clear language - clear Arab - is used. THIS ACCORDING TO ALLAH.
  10. Add that 20/113b+c tells that in the Quran is "explained therein in detail some of the warnings - - -". In detail = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. Islam in 20/113c explains that (YA2638): #####"The Quran is in clear Arabic, so that even an unlearned people like the Arabs might understand and profit by its warning". AND WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER AND MORE CORRECT THAN ALLAH?
  11. Add that 24/34b says the Quran is "verses making things clear". Especially for people like Muhammad's followers - little or no education - to make things clear needs a clear and literal and easy to understand language = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. AGAIN: THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE QURAN ITSELF STATES THAT ITS TEXTS ARE CLEAR AND LITERAL AND NOT TO BE MISUNDERSTOOD - THE TEXTS ARE TO BE UNDERSTOOD WORD BY WORD AND AS SAID: LITERALLY. ONE OF THE MANY VERSES TO REMEMBER WHEN MUSLIMS TRY TO EXPLAIN AWAY ERRORS AND PROBLEMS BY CLAIMING THAT THE MEANING IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE TEXTS REALLY SAY, BY CLAIMING THAT IT IS A METAPHOR, AN ALLEGORY, A PARABLE OR SOMETHING (ONE OF ISLAM'S AND MUSLIMS' STANDARD WAYS OF FLEEING FROM MISTAKES AND DIFFICULT POINTS). ####But who can explain more clear and easy to understand correctly than Allah?
  12. Add that 24/54j says: "- - - preach the clear (message)". It is very clear that the Quran means its message is clear and easy = to be understood literally. Only when the message has an obvious and easy to understand meaning, it is clear.

  13. Add that 26/2a says the same as 24/34b above.
  14. Add that 27/1b-d says the same as 24/34b above.
  15. Add that 28/2 confirms that "These are the verses of the Book that makes (things) clear" - no hiding of meanings, etc. - AND EVERYTHING CORRECTLY EXPLAINED BY ALLAH. WHO IS BETTER TO EXPLAIN THAN HIM?
  16. Add that 36/69b clearly says that the book is "a Quran making things clear" = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. EVERYTHING EXPLAINED BY ALLAH, AND WHO IS BETTER THAN HIM TO EXPLAIN CORRECTLY?
  17. Add that 37/117c says that the Quran is "- - - the Book which helps to make things clear". Comment like 24/34 above.
  18. Add that 39/28b says: “(It is) a Quran in Arabic, without any crookedness - - -”. This means that the texts should be understood just like they are written - no crookedness in the meaning. This is one of the points worth remembering each time Muslims or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the texts means something different from what it says. HAS A MUSLIM, EVEN A MULLAH OR SOMETHING, BETTER AND MORE CORRECT EXPLANATIONS THAN ALLAH?

  19. Add that 41/3da as clearly states that the Quran is "A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail (by Allah*) - - -". Is it then possible for humans to explain it better - or differently - from a god's explanation? WELL, WHO REALLY CAN EXPLAIN THE DETAILS BETTER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN ALLAH?
  20. Add that 43/2a declares that the Quran is "the Book that makes things clear - - -" = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. Which also must mean the language is not hiding other meanings and it is intended that everything shall be meant like it is said and thus easy to understand, plus it explains things in ways clear to see. AND WHO REALLY CAN EXPLAIN THE DETAILS BETTER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN ALLAH?
  21. Add that 43/3c tells: "We (Allah*) have made it a Quran in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand - - -". It is clear that Allah has done everything to make the Quran plain and easy to understand - he even made the Quran in the local language and in texts they would be able to understand. - not to mention when it is written in the local language to make it impossible not to understand exactly what was said and meant. And who can make a text easier to understand correctly than an omniscient god?

  22. Add that 43/29b says: “- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) making things clear.” Also Muhammad used clear speech - TO BE UNDERSTOOD WORD FOR WORD IF NOTHING ELSE WAS INDICATED.
  23. Add that 44/2b-c declares: “By the Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -.” Which also must mean the language is not hiding other meanings, and it is intended that everything shall be meant like it is said - LETTER FOR LETTER AND WORD FOR WORD - and easy to understand, plus it explains things in ways clear to see, if nothing else is clearly indicated. AND WHO REALLY CAN EXPLAIN THE DETAILS BETTER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN ALLAH?
  24. Add that 44/13d says: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) explaining things clearly - - -". Also Muhammad explained things clearly - not by hidden meaning, difficult to see allegories, etc. And what normal human being could and can explain things more correctly than Muhammad? - especially if he just was quoting the words of an omniscient god?
  25. Add that 44/58b states that "Verily, We (Allah*) have made this (Quran) easy (and also in Arab*) - - -". = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. ALL EXPLAINED BY ALLAH, AND WHO REALLY CAN EXPLAIN THE DETAILS BETTER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN ALLAH?
  26. Add that 54/17a declares that "We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -". To guess what is clear texts and what are not - and what the parables "really" means - definitely is not necessary (except a few places where the book tells that this is an (easily understood) parable, or explains the real meaning). ALLAH IS USING A LANGUAGE EASY TO UNDERSTAND = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LIKE IT IS SAID, AND WHO REALLY CAN EXPLAIN THE DETAILS BETTER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN ALLAH? - LAY, BUT INTELLIGENT MUSLIMS AND MULLAHS?

  27. Add that 54/22b says: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories, parables, etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times just in chapter 54, and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally - hidden meanings are only for Allah to understand, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” IS ALLAH LYING WHEN HE SAIS THIS OR SIMILAR? - IN THAT CASE HE IS LYING AT LEAST 30+ PLACES IN THE QURAN.
  28. Add that 54/32a+b tells: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence (and there are at least 31 points in the Quran saying similar = the Quran really means that its texts are to be understood literally where nothing else is indicated). It even is written 4 times only in this chapter, and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally - hidden meanings are only for Allah, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.”
  29.  

    WHO CAN MAKE A TEXT EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN ALLAH?

  30. Add that 54/40 states: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Comments like 54/17/a, 54/22b, and 54/32a+b above.
  31. Add that 65/11f says: “- - - the Signs of Allah (are*) containing clear explanations - - -”. No comments necessary. Except: What human can explain something more clearly and correctly than an omniscient god?
  32. Add that 75/19 tells that "- - - it is for Us (Allah*) to explain it (Islam*) (and make it clear) - - -". BUT IF IT IS FOR ALLAH TO EXPLAIN, WHY THEN DO ISLAM AND MUSLIMS WANT TO EXPLAIN "WHAT ALLAH REALLY MEANS" WHENEVER SOMETHING IS WRONG?##########Is it possible for humans to explain or make things more clear than what a god is able to do in his claimed holy book, sent down directly from him according to the Quran?
  33. AND WHAT ABOUT THE FACT THAT TO GIVE TEXTS IN THE QURAN - TEXTS WHICH THE QURAN/ALLAH CLEARLY AND MANY PLACES STATES THAT ARE CLEAR AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY IF NOTHING ELSE IS INDICATED, AND THAT ONLY THE ILL OF HEART WILL SEARCH FOR HIDDEN MEANINGS IN THOSE TEXTS - MEANINGS DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THEY SAY, IS TO FALSIFY AND CORRUPT THE TEXTS AND THE BOOK?

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

All this means that Muslims claiming that some texts in the book are not easy and clear and correctly explained by Allah (f.x. 6/114da, 41/3da, 75/19 - not to mention 3/7b), but are allegories, metaphors, parables, etc. (a standard Muslim way to "explain" away errors and difficult points) in the Quran, tell that the Quran and Muhammad are wrong or lying all these places, each time they claim that this and this is not clear speech, but hidden meanings/parables.

WHO CAN MAKE A TEKST MORE STRIGHT AND CLEAR AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND, WHO CAN MAKE MORE CORRECT EXPLANATIONS, AND WHO IS BETTER TO EXPLAIN CORRECTLY AND IN DETAIL, SO THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT HE MEANS, THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD? Intelligent Muslims? Mullahs? Islamic scholars? Ayatollahs (in Shi’ia Islam)?

All the same one of the standard ways of "explaining away" errors and other bad points in the Quran, is to claim that clumsy Allah did not mean what he said, but something else - a parable, a metaphor, an allegory - and that the clever Muslims easily can help him and explain what he "really" meant. But this as said means that they indirectly, but clearly states that Muhammad (or Allah?) lied in the Quran each time he said the texts there were easy and clear and easily understood correctly. PLUS THAT THEY FALSIFY AND CORRUPT THE QURANIC TEXTS.

###Should we thank them for confirming that Allah and Muhammad lie in the Quran? - or are so unintelligent and verbally helpless, that even uneducated - not to mention educated - Muslims can correct them and help them explaining what they "really meant"?

AGAIN: "A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion". Here it is ever so easy to prove that these are quotes from the Quran (Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translation). And again there only is one possible conclusion to make: Either the claims that the texts in the Quran are easy and literal and explained in detail by Allah where nothing else is indicated, are wrong, or the many claims from Islam and Muslims claiming that the texts very many places do not mean what it say, but has a different and more or less hidden meaning (claims to "explain away" errors, contradictions, difficult points, etc.) are wrong = that no matter something is wrong when Islam claims Allah do not use clear speech, except in places where differently is clearly indicated.

Some other quotes about proofs and invalid or made up proofs:

  1. "Strong claims need strong proofs.
  2. "A claim without a proof maybe dismissed without a proof".
  3. "Claims are cheap, but only proofs are proofs".
  4. "The use of invalid proofs normally proves that something is fishy".
  5. "The cheat or deceiver naturally must rely on claims pretending to be facts or proofs".
  6. "A made up 'proof' makes the man very suspect".
  7. "A strong belief is not a proof - not necessarily even a truth"
  8. .
  9. "Wrong claims and invalid 'proofs' are working tools of the cheat".
  10. "A student with correct facts, gets a more correct answer than 20 professors with wrong facts". (Invalid, "signs", claims, "proofs", etc. of course are wrong facts.)
  11. And we may add from Peer Gynt in his original language: "Naar utgangspunktet er som galest, blir resultatet tidt originalest" - freely translated: "When you conclude from wrong claims/wrong facts/invalid "proofs"/etc., you get wrong/strange conclusions".

######Either the Muslims claiming that there are lots of places in the Quran where the texts mean something else than what it really is saying - claiming it is allegories, etc. - are lying, #######or Muhammad and Allah were lying in the Quran each time when stating that the quranic texts are easy and clear and literal where nothing else is clearly indicated.

AND ONCE MORE: TO CLAIM THAT THE QURAN MEANS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT IT REALLY SAYS, IS TO CORRUPT AND FALSIFY IT.

###041 3/7b: “He (Allah*) it is who has sent down to thee (Muhammad or Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*); in it are verses basic or fundamental #####(of established meaning); they (all the verses which are to be understood literally*) are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. #####But those in whose hearts are perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking disorder, ######searching for hidden meanings, ######but no one knows the hidden meaning, except Allah.” But maybe this one is allegorical, too, because Islam and many a Muslim are hunting for the hidden meanings behind what they claim is an allegory as soon as there are errors and mistakes they cannot otherwise “explain” away. Is this because of “perversity” in their heart? – or perhaps because they do not have the brain, the guts and the backbone needed to meet the question: What does it mean that there are lots of mistakes and other wrongs in the Quran? – or: If all the mistakes and other wrongs in the Quran means that Islam is a made up religion like so many others – what then whit all Muslims, if there all the same is a Day of Doom? - - - and especially if there somewhere is a benevolent god whom Muslims have been prohibited from looking for?!

It is very clear here that the plain and obvious meaning in the texts normally is the correct understanding. When you remember that Muhammad’s congregation mainly was uneducated and often naïve people, it is even easier to understand that this had to be the case.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

###042 3/7c: “- - - in it (the Quran*) are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they (all the verses that are to be understood literally*) are the foundation of the Book”: There is no doubt that the Quran is meant to be understood literally where nothing else is specified. Also see the heading of this chapter above and 11/1b below.

We also want to add a little more about this verse, as the addition is essential in some of all the places Islam/Muslims try to “explain” away statements, etc., that obviously are not true, by saying they are allegories:

There are some scattered verses said to be allegories or similar, and which are explained the meanings of. As the meanings are explained, these must be understood as included in “verses basic or fundamental”.

There are no clear allegories where the meaning is not obvious or explained. There are a number of verses where the meaning is difficult or impossible to see. But unclear speech does not mean an allegory – an allegory is a (clear) story which clearly means something else. Unclear speech only is indistinct or unclear speech.

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

#####043 3/7d: ”- - - no one knows it’s (the Quran's*) hidden meaning except Allah”. In any text – even in Donald Duck – it is possible to find – or make up - hidden meanings. But this is strongly advised against in this verse (3/7): Only Allah is qualified to do that:”- - - no one knows its hidden meaning except Allah”. And who is better to know just that than Allah? – the maker of the book (?) - and the one revering the presumed "Mother of the Book" in his own (Allah's) home, a book which the Quran is claimed to be a copy of (without proofs like normal for Islam)?

But all the same a standard explanation used by Islam to “explain” any mistake or contradiction which are difficult to explain, is that it must not be understood literally, but allegorically. As soon as f.x. science shows that something in the Quran is wrong, that text switches from being “basic and fundamental – of established meaning”, to becoming an allegory. This in spite of Allah's and in spite of the Quran's clear words. It is one of the four most frequently used last ditch ways Islam and Muslims use to try to “explain” away things that cannot be explained. (The other ones are: “You cannot take the meaning from just one point or a few verse – you have to judge from the whole surah (or the whole Quran)", "The Quran has to be read in Arab to be understood correctly" - which is nonsense, as for one thing according to linguists Arab only is a medium difficult language to translate, for another that "what one brain (f.x. an Arab quoting the Quran), another brain of similar quality will be able to understand - it at most takes a little explanation if there are unknown words or expressions" (and remember that to explain meanings of perhaps difficult words or expressions, is far from the same as to introduce claimed allegories, etc. not indicated in the texts) + how intelligent is Allah if he used a language not possible to translate? - and the last is: "You are just a Muslim hater or Israel lover and what facts you tell consequently are invalid and of no interest"). This in spite of that they themselves happily and with glee quotes and often even twists words far out of context to favor Islam (f.x. “There is (wrongly quoted) no compulsion in religion”) or to discredit any other religion). But 3/7 proves that to make up hidden meanings behind the words – f.x. changing its meaning to be allegorical where an allegory is not indicated – is wrong and strongly against Allah’s wish and order: It is the work of “those in whose hearts is perversity”.

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

####044 3/7e: “He (Allah*) Who has sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*): in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) (= to be read literally*); they (the verses to be read literally*) are the foundation of the Book (the Quran*): others are allegorical (there are a number of allegorical or similar verses in the Quran - they either are easy to see are allegorical, or the meaning is explained, or both*). But those in whose hearts is perversity (!*) follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking disorder, for its hidden meaning (= only bad persons seek the hidden meanings - also from the allegories*), but no one knows the hidden meanings except Allah (= the possibly hidden meanings are not for humans*)”.

In clear text: #######The Quran is to be read literary if nothing else is clearly said or clearly indicated - hidden meanings are for Allah, and trying to find hidden meanings are done by perverts. This is very essential for Muslims to remember when they are tempted to explain away mistakes and blunders as allegories with hidden meanings ever so often. ###There is no hidden meaning unless it is indicated, this verse says, and only the bad humans look for hidden meanings.

############The Quran and Islam for one thing claim that the clear and easy language in the Quran is a proof for that the book is made by a god, and for another that the perfect language is a proof for the existence of Allah (no such proofs exist, so they try to find some). And not least that the book and its perfect language is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated - that the language is "clear and easy" and that only those "in whose hearts are perversity" go looking for hidden meanings - hidden meanings "it only is for Allah to understand".

######All the same one of the most used way of explaining away errors and other difficult points in the Quran, is to claim that the texts mean something different from what the words say.

On this background: What do the mistakes, etc. and the unclear language prove?

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

########################################################################

045 3/138a: "Here (in the Quran*) is a plain statement to men - - -". The interesting point concerning a statement like this, is not if it is plain, but if it is true. How can one without any proof relay on a statement built on nothing but lose words, and made by a very doubtful man - and made in a book full of mistakes, etc.?

But this statement also has relevance for all the claims Muslims make about all the points in the Quran they claim are not wrong - which the literal meanings are in those cases - but analogies, etc. The Quran itself contradicts such claims by stating several places that the text is plain and easy to understand.

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

######T

046 6/55a: "Thus do We (Allah*) explain the Signs in detail - - -". How are his claimed signs explained here? They are explained nowhere in the entire Quran - there are lots of claims, but no valid explanations. But at least it is stated that the words are plain and explained in detail.

##########047 6/114da: "- - - He (Allah*) it is Who hath sent unto you (Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*) explained in detail - - -". If Allah has explained everything in detail, who can then explain it better - or explain that the clumsy Allah meant something different from what he said? But that is one of Islam's and Muslims' standard "explanations" for "explaining" away errors and difficult points in the Quran: As what the text says is wrong, impossible, horrible, or something, Allah cannot have meant what he said, but must have told a parable, allegory, metaphor, or something, without indicating so, "but we intelligent and well educated Muslim can explain it better, and tell you what Allah 'really' must have meant!!".

####048 11/1b: “(This (the Quran*) is a Book, with verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) - - -.” In plain words: The verses are in plain language and are to be understood literally where otherwise is not clearly said – in “basic and fundamental” words. But all the same Muslims try explaining away anything which is wrong in the Quran and which they do not find “explanations” for, with that it "this is not to be understood literally – it must be allegories", etc. It is one of their four "last" – and often used - lines of defense” when errors in the Quran cannot be explained or explained away. (The other ones are: “You cannot deduce anything from one or a few verses which look wrong – the Quran (or the surah) must be understood as a whole”. "You have to read the Quran in Arab to understand it correctly". Simply nonsense - all languages have words and expressions which need explanations, no language has words or explanations not possible to explain/translate. And the really “low prose” one: “You are lying or making up things because you are an Islam-hater or are listening to Islam-haters” – this no matter how correctly you are quoting the Quran or the Hadiths or whatever. And finally: "You have to read the Quran in Arab to understand everything correctly".)

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

Very essential points to remember when Muslims try to claim clear mistakes are allegories or similar. They often do. And Muslims trying to flee from indications or proofs in the Quran for that things are seriously wrong in the religion of Muhammad, might remember that the only main person they in case cheat, is oneself.

###050 17/12h: “- - - all things have We (Allah*) explained in detail (in the Quran*)”. Wrong. A lot of things are not explained in detail - f.x. Muslim laws have had to be supplemented with many more paragraphs than the ones in the Quran and in Hadith - and still Muslim law are far from perfect concerning modern life and societies, and even concerning daily life. And just? - A man telling that a woman has behaved indecently is lying TO ALLAH according to Allah and the Quran, if he cannot produce 4 witnesses, THIS EVEN IF HE SPEAKS THE FULL TRUTH, AND THE OMNISCIENT ALLAH OF COURSE KNOWS THIS. And much worse: A raped woman is to be severely punished if she cannot produce 4 MEN to witness that it really was rape - normally absolutely impossible. (For one thing rape normally happens in hidden places, and for another: How many men will come forth to tell: “We saw that she was raped, but did not try to help her” - and then be strictly punished for that omission? Those two points in the Quran are among the most horribly unjust and inhuman paragraphs we have ever seen or heard about in any civilized(?) law. Is sharia civilized? Is Allah good or/and just? Judge for yourself. For similar claims see 15/1 -16/89 – 24/34 – 26/2 – 27/1 – 36/69 - 43/2 – 44/2.

######But there is no doubt that the Quran means everything is correctly explained = the texts in the book are to be understood literally - and who can explain things better or more correct and easy to understand than an omniscient god?

#051 18/1d: “(Allah*) hath allowed therein no Crookedness.” In a book that full of mistaken facts and other mistakes, there is a lot of crookedness. Especially the mistakes, the use of invalid “signs”, ”proofs” and as invalid logic, and the partly immoral moral code and laws, the acceptance of dishonesty in words (lies, deceit, broken oaths, etc.) and deeds (thieving/looting, extortion, slave taking, etc), "smell".

BUT THERE IS NO DOUBT THE QURAN ITSELF DECLARES THAT THERE IS NO CROCKEDNESS IN THE BOOK - THE TEXTS ARE TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY.

#052 18/1e: (A18/1): "The above phrase ("no Crookedness"*) is meant to establish the direct, unambiguous character of the Quran - - -". Do remember this each time Muslims claim that mistakes in the Quran "in reality" are allegories or similar. Also see 18/1d just above.

053 18/1g: (A18/1): "The above phrase ("no Crookedness"*) is meant to establish the direct, unambiguous character of the Quran and to stress its freedom from all obscurities and internal contradictions". A symbolic irony as there are hundreds of obscure points and at least 300+ internal contradictions in the Quran - perhaps 3ooo errors - see separate chapters in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" - www.1000mistakes.com .

#############But this statement also have a serious implication: "- - - the direct, unambiguous character - - -" and "- - - its freedom from all obscurities - - -" mean that there are no hidden allegories, parables, metaphor, metonym, etc. in the Quran. This means that Islam's and Muslims' many claims that errors, etc. in the Quran mean something else - are allegories, etc. - are wrong.

054 18/2a: “(He (Allah*) hath made it) Straight (and Clear) - - -”. The tales “per se” mostly are plain and easy. But a book that full of mistaken facts and other mistakes, f.x. linguistic ones, (and perhaps religious ones, too - why should they be exceptions?) is neither straight nor clear.

####055 18/2b: “(He (Allah*) hath made it (the Quran*)) Straight (and Clear) - - -". #####This is one of the verses you, like we said, should remember each time a Muslim tries to explain away a clear mistake by "no, this is not literally meant - - -", which is one of the most used last ditch defenses (the two others are: "You cannot understand a text in the Quran alone - you have to see the whole Surah (or the whole Quran)". And: "You cannot really understand the Quran unless you read it in Arab". Both of which are rubbish. (Well, there are 3 more: "You do not know the Quran/what you are talking about", and: "You just are an Israel lover/Muslim hater quoting what you have heard or read". And the strong one in all religions: "I know better than you about this - even if the proofs show I am wrong". ####(Science has showed that it is typical for religious persons in all religions to believe not because their religion is proved, but in spite of all proofs showing that things are wrong. Such proofs are just dismissed, simply because they do not want to believe them - Muslims are very typical here.)) There are places where you have to know more than the actual verse and the nearest few ones to understand the meaning, but mostly the simple answer is: "If you are not able to see the essence in a meaning or something said, you should stay out of debates" - this Muslim claim simply is a means to make the opponent unsure, because few non-Muslims know the Quran well enough to see that mostly this claim is invalid. And as for reading in Arab to understand it: For one thing the Arab of Muhammad mainly was the language of primitive desert nomads even though it later is linguistically polished - there is no problems for rich modern languages like f.x. English to compete with it in vocabulary. (Also in Japan they had the same haughty self-centered meaning once upon a time: Primitive foreigners impossibly would be able to express what a highly refined language like their could. They stopped claiming it after many enough had learnt foreign languages to see the nonsense in it. And Japanese was really a refined cultural language, not something from primitive tribes, even though polished afterward. Well, there always will be some words which are special for a language, and which need explanation, but that is it - and this goes for any language and is nothing special for Arab. The remaining fact is that what one brain can think, another brain of the same quality and similar education can understand, at least with a little explanation. But the claim is difficult to leave for Muslims, because they need it as an "explanation" when they lack real arguments.

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

056 19/97b: "So We (Allah*) made the (Quran) easy - - -". Please do remember this each time a Muslim tries to tell you that a mistake in the Quran does not mean what is written, but something entirely different or a parable, which he has to explain for you, because the god was to clumsy expressing himself in his claimed easy to understand book, so that mere humans must help him and explain what he "really" means, when he is talking. This even though to change the meaning of the texts in the Quran is to falsify and corrupt the book.

WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

057 20/113b: "- - - an Arabic Quran (from Allah*) - - -". Good for Arabs who then could understand everything, but rationally speaking an Arabic Quran was and still is a bad luck for Muslims if it is a made up book, and bad policy for a god wanting world dominance (f.x. Greek, Latin, or Persian had been better):

  1. The really hard thing was that the Arab written language was not completed - it was completed only around 900 AD (it mainly consisted of the consonants, and also lacked the points - diacritical points - used to signify some letters in modern Arab writing) - and f.x. the comma. This means there even today are lots and lots of words and expressions where Islam does not for sure know what Muhammad really wanted to say. They camouflage the problem by calling it "different ways of reading, but in reality it is different versions of the book, and no-one knows which "way of reading" - version - really is the correct one, if any.

  2. A god for the world should want a world language. Many more could have read it and over much wider areas + that f.x. Greek and Latin and Persian and others were mature languages and had complete alphabets - it would have been possible to write down exactly what Muhammad or another "messenger “said. (Arabic lacked vowels plus - like said - all the signs used when reading (diacritical points, full stop, comma, etc.). The result is that one has to guess the missing letters and the signs. If you f.x. in English have the consonants "h" and "s" and know it represents a word, and have to guess the vowels, you can f.x. get "his" or "has" - or "house" or "hose". This is the problem Islam meets when it tries to read the old manuscripts - do not laugh when a Muslim next time tells you the Quran is exactly Muhammad's words to the last comma - it is impolite (and on top of all the comma did not exist in Arab at that time - in spite of uneducated or dishonest Muslims' claim that "the present Quran is an exact copy of the first one, down to the last comma").
  3. Arab has become so "elite" and holy, that also non-Arabs have to learn the Quran in Arabic - often by heart - even if they do not understand the words.
  4.  

    But it had two pluses for Muhammad:

    1. It was possible for him and his first, primitive followers to use that language - and hardly any other - as that was the language they knew.
    2. Muhammad felt that the Arabs were inferior to Jews and Christians who had holy books. The Quran repaired parts of this inferiority feeling.

    058 20/113c: (YA2638): "The Quran is in clear Arabic, so that even an unlearned people like the Arabs might understand and profit by its warning". Remember this each time a Muslims tries to explain away mistakes, contradiction, etc. with claims that it does not mean what it says, but something else, or that it is figuratively meant or that it is a metaphor or something.

    But if the Quran had been for all the world, the point had not been to make Arabs understand the texts, but to make all the world understand it - and to understand it correctly. Arab with its incomplete alphabet in case definitely was a wrong language to start with.

    Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

    Also like said the book is not very pure Arabic:

    1. The old Arab alphabet as mentioned only had the consonants - it even today is unclear what is the real meaning of many words and sentences.
    2. The old Arab alphabet did not have the points (“diacritical marks”) used later to mark different letters.
    3. The old Arab alphabet did not have marks like full stop or comma – even though many a Muslim today claims that the Hafs version of the Quran he is reading – or may be the Warsh or another version if he is from Africa – is an exact copy of Muhammad’s words “down to the last comma”.
    4. The written Arab language and alphabet was not perfected until ca. 900 AD - perfect writing was impossible around 650 AD when the official Quran was made.

     

    But all the same the use of imported words in a book trying to use perfect Arab language as a proof for divine origin, tells that it is not made by an omniscient god - he had not made such mistakes.

    We stress that the following samples partly are taken from Internet, as our Arab is not up to that standard. Therefore it must be used carefully, and if you find mistakes, please inform us. It only is meant as a taste - according to experts there are a lot more:

    1. Acadian:
    2. Adam = man or mankind. The correct Arab word: Basharan or insane.
    3. Eden = garden. The correct Arab word: Janna.
    4. Aramaic:
    5. Qiyama = resurrection.
    6. Assyrian:
    7. Abraham/Ibrahim - a name. The correct Arab equivalent: Abu Raheem.
    8. Egyptian:
    9. Pharaoh = king or potentate (also a title). Used 84 times in the Quran.
    10. Ethiopian:
    11. Malak = angel (2/33)
    12. Greek:
    13. Iblis - corruption of the Greek word diabolos = devil.
    14. Injil - corruption of the Greek word eua(n)ggelion = Gospel.
    15. Hebrew:
    16. Ahbar = teacher.
    17. Darasa = to find the deepest meanings of the scriptures by exact and thorough studies.
    18. Furquan (also used in Syriac, pwrqn) = to make free, salvation.
    19. Issa or Isa = Esau (brother of the patriarch Jacob). The Quran says it means Jesus. Correct Arab for Jesus: Yeshuwa (close to Hebrew Joshua which is the Hebrew version of the name Jesus, which is Greek - NT was first written in Greek).
    20. Jahannam (Gehinnom or Gehenna) = originally the valley of Hennom or Hinnom near Jerusalem, intensely used for Pagan (Baal) sacrifices to fire, and it therefore later gave the name to Hell.
    21. Jannatu Adn = paradise, Garden of Eden (today reckoned by science to have been in south Iraq – if it ever existed).
    22. Malakut = reign, the country of Allah/God. NB: No original Arab word ends with -ut.
    23. Masani = repetition.
    24. Maun = to find sanctuary.
    25. Rabbani = teacher.
    26. Sabt = day of rest (Sabbath).
    27. Sakinat = the presence of Allah/God.
    28. Tabut = ark.
    29. Taghut = mistake.

    ###061 26/2a: “These are verses of the Book that makes (things) clear.” In other words: Told and explained in clear words. But all the same Muslims as a last way out, explains – and in religious blindness often honestly believe – that errors are not errors, but are camouflaging hidden meanings or allegories. In addition there are some hundreds of points in the book where the exact meaning is unclear - either literally unclear or there are two or more possible meanings, often varying wildly (some places because the meaning has been expressed unclear, other places because the Arab alphabet was not complete when the Quran was written down - the vowels and the points used in Arab to signify some letters (diacritical points) were not yet existing - and the reader has to guess these, and then there are many cases where the meaning varies according to what letters you guess are meant. To take an English sample: If you have the consonants h and s and know they represent a word, this word may be "has" or "his" or "house" or "hose").

F.x. unbelievably many points with wrong facts or contradictions - in strong spite of its and Muslims' claims about it being a perfect book from a god. Remember this every time a Muslim tries to tell you that you cannot understand the Quran unless so-and-so, or that the "real" meaning of a text is not what it says, but is hidden in an allegory.

THIS MEANS THAT MUSLIMS EXPLAINING AWAY MISTAKES AND OTHER DARK POINTS BY CLAIMING THAT THE QURAN AT THAT OR THOSE POINTS ARE USING NOT EXPLAINED OR OBVIOUS PARABLES, ALLEGORIES, ETC. = USING HIDDEN MEANINGS - EITHER ARE WRONG OR ARE TELLING THAT THE QURAN LIES ALL THE PLACES THE BOOK SAYS IT IS USING WORDS CLEAR AND EASY - LITERAL - TO UNDERSTAND.

Which is essential, as many Muslims try to explain away mistakes with that Allah is a clumsy god unable to say exactly what he means, so "we" intelligent and more or less educated humans must explain what he really wanted to say, or that he did not mean what he said, but an allegory. To be blunt: This is the problem with clumsy gods - we humans must explain and find the words and the obvious explanations or meanings they were unable to express themselves - - - when they/he make(s) mistakes, etc. But what if we in reality instead falsify or corrupt the texts?

    ###065 28/2: “These are verses of the Book (the Quran*) that makes (things) clear”. With that many mistakes, contradictions, cases of invalid logic, and suspect arguments in the book, at most some things can be made clear. But the verse makes it clear that Allah(?) means he is using a clear language with clear information and clear words - not a lot of hidden meanings, like Muslims often claim when what the Quran tells, is wrong. "Oh, no! The book does not mean what it says! It is a parable for a hidden meaning, and must mean so-and-so!" It is one of Islam's standard methods for explaining away by claiming it is a parable or something, even obvious errors.

    But verses like this make it very clear that according to the Quran the language is clear, and thus that the tries Islam/Muslims make to explain away things, really are wrong.

    066 30/28c: "Thus do We (Allah*) explain the Signs in detail - - -". This does not refer to any sign at all. But it refers to a similitude in the first part of the verse - and the only possible way of understanding the claimed explanation, is that humans are the slaves of Allah (this actually is made understood more places in the Quran). There is nowhere in the Bible made a direct comparison between Yahweh and humans, but it is clear they are not his slaves - clearly inferior underlings, but not slaves. One more indication for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

    If Allah has explained everything in detail, who can then explain it better - or explain that the clumsy Allah meant something different from what he said? But that is one of Islam's and Muslims' standard "explanations" for "explaining" away errors and difficult points in the Quran: As what the text says is wrong, impossible, horrible, or something, Allah cannot have meant what he said, but must have told a parable, allegory, metaphor, or something, without indicating so, "but we intelligent humans can explain it better and tell you what Allah 'really' must have meant!!".

    *068 39/28b: “(It is) a Quran in Arabic, without any crookedness - - -”. Without crookedness? With all the mistakes?!! With all those contradictions?! With all the invalid “signs” and “proofs”? With all the lose claims and statements? Such facts normally are the very hallmarks of crookedness.

    #####On the other hand: This means that the texts should be understood just like they are written - no crookedness in the meaning.

    ###069 41/3da: "A Book (the Quran*) whereof the verses are explained in detail - - -.” The main and the essential point with this verse, is that it is one of those verses which kills Muslims' nearly innumerable tries to explain away mistakes, etc. by trying to claim it "in reality" means something else than what it is saying. Here - and in f.x. 3/7 and 11/1b - is clearly stated that the verses are explained in detail = they are meaning exactly what they say and explain - which often is wrong. By the way: Is it possible for humans to explain things better - or differently - than a god? Also see 41/3b above.

    Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times just in chapter 54 and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally, and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah - among humans such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.”

    ##070 43/2b: “- - - the Book that makes things clear - - -”. But a book with perhaps 3000+ mistakes - 1700+ points of mistaken facts only - makes few things clear. See also 40/75 + 41/12 above and 43/3a below.

    Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times just in chapter 54 and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah, and such search by humans only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” . That the language is clear and thus meant literally is mentioned many places in the Quran.

    More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what are parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

    ######That the Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran is clear, explained by Allah, and to be understood literally, you find f.x. these places: 3/7b, 3/138a, 6/114ca, 11/1b, 15/1d, 17/12h, 18/1d-e, 18/2a, 19/97b, 20/113b+c, 24/34, 24/54j, 26/2a, 27/1b-d, 28/2, 36/69e, 37/117c, 39/28b, 41/3da, 43/2a, 43/3c, 43/29b, 44/2b-c, 44/13d, 44/58b, 54/17a, 54/22b, 54/32a+b, 54/40a, 65/11f, and 75/19. Worth remembering each time a Muslim or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the text means something different from what it says. In such cases either the Muslim/Islam lies when he/she/it claims the text means something different from what it says (the claim often is that it is a parable or something), or the Quran lies when it says that the book uses clear texts where nothing else is indicated.

    The listed points are all collected in the beginning of this chapter, and in 44/58b.

    WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

    #####071 43/3c: "We (Allah*) have made it a Quran in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand - - -". It is clear that Allah has done everything to make the Quran plain and easy to understand - he even made the Quran in the local language and in texts they would be able to understand. - not to mention when it is written in the local language to make it impossible not to understand exactly what was said and meant. And who can make a text easier to understand correctly than an omniscient god? Worth remembering each time Muslims try to explain away mistakes with that the text does not mean what it says, but something else or something hidden. Also see 43/2a and 43/2b above.

    But for a god wanting to reach the whole world, Arab was a lousy choice. One thing is that it was a language mainly used by uneducated tribesmen, and thus with a limited vocabulary. Another thing that it mostly was a language for the locals in Arabia - mainly farmers at the oasis and Bedouins, and not a widely known language like Latin, Greek or Persian. But the main problem is that it did not have a complete alphabet. Its alphabet mainly consisted of the consonants. It lacked the vocals, the points Arab today use to signify some letters - called diacritical points - and even the signs use when writing, like the full stop, the comma, etc. (Which makes the Muslim claim that the Quran is the correct words of Muhammad down to the last comma, a joke - the comma did not even exist in Arab at that time). The incomplete alphabet even today makes serious problems for Islam, as it often is impossible to know what exactly is meant by words and sentences. Islam has "solved" this problem by declaring that all possible translations of the old manuscripts which give logical meaning in Arab, are correct. To hide that this results in a lot of different versions of the texts, they call it "different ways of reading". The Arab alphabet was not completed until around 900 AD - some 250 years after the official Quran was written.

    072 43/29b: “- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) making things clear.” No messenger preaching what is found in the Quran or similar, makes things clear – too many mistakes and too much unclear logic, unclear texts, etc.

    ########But more essential just here is that the Quran tells/means that Muhammad's words/the Quran makes things clear. This means that according to the Quran its words and explanations are clear and literal and to the point. In other words: The Quran here tells that its texts are clear and to be understood like what is said = literally - not hidden meanings you have to search for, and if you find them, hope you guess the meaning correctly. The Quran several places tells this: Its texts are clear and to be understood literally, if nothing else is said. Remember this every time Muslims try to flee from errors or difficult points in the Quran, by claiming the texts do not mean what they say, but are parables or something.

    ##073 44/2b: “By the Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -.” Which also must mean the language is not hiding other meanings, and it is intended that everything shall be meant like it is said and easy to understand, plus it explains things in ways clear to see. Also see 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, and 43/2 above.

    Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

    *074 44/2c: “- - - the Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -”. A book with this many mistakes and dubious arguments, etc. - see 40/75 and 41/12 - dictated by a man with a dubious character - see f.x. 31/30 - does not really make things clear.

    Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence. The Quran is to be understood literally and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah, and such search from humans only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” Similar is mentioned at least these places: 3/7, 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/17, 54/22, 54/32, and 54/40.

    075 44/13d: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) explaining things clearly - - -". There is no doubt Muhammad meant he/the Quran explained things clearly - a fact to be remembered each time Muslims try to explain away mistakes in the Quran by claiming it is not clear text, but parables or something.

    A very central point here is that the Quran itself means that Muhammad explained things clearly. This indicates that also his most central explanations - the ones in the Quran - are meant to be very clear, which again indicate that the texts are meant to be literal, if nothing else is said of indicated.

    WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

    1. Add to this that 3/7b tells that "those in whose heart is perversity follow the part thereof (of the Quran*) that is allegorical" and that "no one knows the hidden meaning (of the allegories*) except Allah".
    2. Add that 3/138a tells that the Quran "is a plain statement to men - - -". = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning.
    3. ##### Add that 6/114ca says:"- - - He (Allah*) it is Who hath sent unto you (Muslims*) the Book (the Quran*) explained in detail - - -". If Allah has explained everything in detail, who can then explain it better - or explain that the clumsy Allah meant something different from what he said? But that is one of Islam's and Muslims' standard "explanations" for "explaining" away errors and difficult points in the Quran: As what the text says is wrong, impossible, horrible, or something, Allah cannot have meant what he said, but must have told a parable, allegory, metaphor, or something, without indicating so, "but we intelligent humans - with or without education - can explain it better and tell you what Allah 'really' must have meant!!".
    4. Add that 11/1b tells that "- - - (the Quran is*) a Book with verses of basic or fundamental (of established (literal*) meaning), further explained in detail (by Allah*)". = the texts in the Quran are clear words of established (= literal) meaning from Allah.
    5. Add that 15/1b declares that it is "a Quran that makes things clear" - not one which hide basic and other facts or rules behind words of allegories, which are difficult to see if are allegories or plain speech, and on top of all a guesswork to extract the correct(?) meaning from.
    6. Add that 17/12h says: “- - - all things have We (Allah*) explained in detail”. There is no doubt that the Quran means everything is correctly explained = the texts in the book are to be understood literally. AND WHO EXPLAINS SOMETHING BETTER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND CORRECTLY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

    7. Add that 18/1d+e state that“(Allah*) hath allowed therein (in the Quran*) no Crookedness.” = The language is clear and literal without any tricks of hidden meanings.

    8. Add that 18/2a states that Allah has made it - the Quran and its language - "Straight (and Clear)".
    9. Add that 19/97b tells that "- - - We (Allah*) made the (Quran) easy - - -". = clear language - clear Arab - is used.
    10. Add that 20/113b+c tells that in the Quran are "explained therein in detail some of the warnings - - -". In detail = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. Islam in 20/113c explains that (YA2638): #####"The Quran is in clear Arabic, so that even an unlearned people like the Arabs might understand and profit by its warning".
    11. Add that 24/34b says the Quran is "verses making things clear". Especially for people like Muhammad's followers - little or no education - to make things clear needs a clear and literal and easy to understand language = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. AGAIN: THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE QURAN ITSELF STATES THAT ITS TEXTS ARE CLEAR AND LITERAL AND NOT TO BE MISUNDERSTOOD - THE TEXTS ARE TO BE UNDERSTOOD WORD BY WORD, AND AS SAID: LITERALLY. ONE OF THE MANY VERSES TO REMEMBER WHEN MUSLIMS TRY TO EXPLAIN AWAY ERRORS AND PROBLEMS BY CLAIMING THAT THE MEANING IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE TEXTS REALLY SAYS, BY CLAIMING THAT IT IS A METAPHOR, AN ALLEGORY, A PARABLE OR SOMETHING (ONE OF ISLAM'S AND MUSLIMS' STANDARD WAYS OF FLEEING FROM MISTAKES AND DIFFICULT POINTS IN THE QURAN).
    12. Add that 24/54j says: "- - - preach the clear (message)". It is very clear that the Quran means its message is clear and easy = to be understood literally. Only when the message has an obvious and easy to understand meaning, it is clear.

    13. Add that 26/2a says the same as 24/34b above.
    14. Add that 27/1b-d says the same as 24/34b above.
    15. Add that 28/2 confirms that "These are the verses of the Book that makes (things) clear" - no hiding of meanings, etc.
    16. Add that 36/69b clearly says that the book is "a Quran making things clear" = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning.
    17. Add that 37/117c says that the Quran is "- - - the Book which helps to make things clear". Comment like 24/34 above.
    18. Add that 39/28b says: “(It is) a Quran in Arabic, without any crookedness - - -”. This means that the texts should be understood just like they are written - no crookedness in the meaning. This is one of the points worth remembering each time Muslims or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the texts means something different from what it says.

    19. Add that 41/3da as clearly states that the Quran is "A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail (by Allah*) - - -". Is it then possible for humans to explain it better - or differently - from a god's explanation?
    20. Add that 43/2a declares that the Quran is "the Book that makes things clear - - -" = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning. Which also must mean the language is not hiding other meanings, and that it is intended that everything shall be meant like it is said and thus easy to understand, plus it explains things in ways clear to see.
    21. Add that 43/3c tells: "We (Allah*) have made it a Quran in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand - - -". It is clear that Allah has done everything to make the Quran plain and easy to understand - he even made the Quran in the local language and in texts they would be able to understand. - not to mention when it is written in the local language to make it impossible not to understand exactly what was said and meant. And who can make a text easier to understand correctly than an omniscient god?
    22. Add that 43/29b says: “- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) making things clear.” Also Muhammad used clear speech.
    23. Add that 44/2b-c declares: “By the Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -.” Which also must mean the language is not hiding other meanings, and it is intended that everything shall be meant like it is said, and easy to understand, plus it explains things in ways clear to see, if nothing else is clearly indicated.
    24. Add that 44/13d says: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) explaining things clearly - - -". Also Muhammad explained things clearly - not by hidden meaning, difficult to see allegories, etc. And what normal human being could and can explain things more correctly than Muhammad? - especially if he just was quoting the words of an omniscient god?
    25. Add that 44/58b states that "Verily, We (Allah*) have made this (Quran) easy (and also in Arab*) - - -". = in a language clear and easy to understand - not in a language where you have to guess where and how to guess the "real" meaning.
    26. Add that 54/17a declares that "We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -". To guess what is clear texts and what is not - and what the parables "really" means - definitely is not necessary (except a few places where the book tells that this is an (easily understood) parable, or explains the real meaning).

    27. Add that 54/22b says: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories, parables, etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times just in chapter 54, and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally - hidden meanings are only for Allah to understand, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.”
    28. Add that 54/32a+b tells: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence (and there are at least 31 points in the Quran saying similar = the Quran really means that its texts are to be understood literally where nothing else is indicated). It even is written 4 times only in this chapter, and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally - hidden meanings are only for Allah, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.”
    29. Add that 54/40 states: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Comments like 54/17/a, 54/22b, and 54/32a+b above.
    30. Add to this that Allah in 55/2 tells that it is he who has taught the Quran. And who is better to teach and to teach correctly and clearly than a god? Every Muslim telling that a human may give a better explanation of one or more points, tells that Allah has a limited brain and is wrong in his explanations.
    31. Add that 65/11f says: “- - - the Signs of Allah (are*) containing clear explanations - - -”. No comments necessary. Except: What human can explain something more clearly and correctly than an omniscient god?
    32. Add that 75/19 tells that "- - - it is for Us (Allah*) to explain it (Islam*) (and make it clear) - - -". ##########Is it possible for humans to explain or make things more clear than a god is able to do in his claimed holy book, sent down directly from him according to the Quran?

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

All this means that Muslims claiming that some texts in the book are not easy and clear and correctly explained by Allah (f.x. 6/114da, 41/3da, 75/19 - not to mention 3/7b), but are allegories, metaphors, parables, etc. (a standard Muslim way to "explain" away errors and difficult points) in the Quran, tell that the Quran and Muhammad are wrong or lying all these places, each time they claim that this and this is not clear speech, but hidden meanings/parables.

WHO CAN MAKE A TEKST MORE STRIGHT AND CLEAR, AND WHO IS BETTER TO EXPLAIN CORRECTLY AND IN DETAIL, SO THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT HE MEANS, THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

All the same one of the standard ways of "explaining away" errors and other bad points in the Quran, is to claim that Allah did not mean what he said, but something else - a parable, a metaphor, an allegory - and that the clever Muslims easily can help him and explain what he "really" meant. But this as said means that they indirectly, but clearly, states that Muhammad lied in the Quran each time he said the texts there were easy and clear.

Should we thank them for confirming that Allah and Muhammad lie in the Quran?

AGAIN: "A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion". Here it is ever so easy to prove that these are quotes from the Quran (Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translation). And again there only is one possible conclusion to make: Either the claims that the texts in the Quran are easy and literal and explained in detail by Allah where nothing else is indicated, are wrong, or the many claims from Islam and Muslims claiming that the texts very many places do not mean what it say, but has a different and more or less hidden meaning (claims to "explain away" errors, contradictions, difficult points, etc.) are wrong.

######Either the Muslims claiming that there are lots of places in the Quran where the texts mean something else than what it really is saying - claiming it is allegories, etc. - are lying, or Muhammad and Allah each time when stating that the quranic texts are easy and clear and literal where nothing else is clearly indicated, were lying in the Quran.

Some samples of what the Quran says about its making:

  1. 2/5: "They (Muslims*) are on (true) guidance, from their Lord (Allah*) - - -". = Allah made the Quran.
  2. 2/23: "- - - We (Allah*) have revealed from time to time - - -". = Allah made the Quran.
  3. 2/29: "- - - He (Allah*) hath perfect knowledge". = What he makes is perfect - and what he tells, is told in a perfect way.
  4. 2/32: "- - - it is Thou (Allah*) who hath perfect knowledge and wisdom". = What he makes is perfect, and what he tells of course is told in a perfect way.
  5. 2/41: "- - - what I (Allah*) reveal - - -". = the Quran is from Allah.
  6. 2/93: "- - - what Allah hath sent down - - -". = The Quran is from Allah.
  7. 2/115: "For Allah is - - - All-Knowing". = Allah knows everything - also how to tell exactly what he means.
  8. 2/129: "- - - for Thou (Allah*) art - - - the Wise". = He is perfect in his wisdom - included in how to tell exactly what he means.
  9. 2/176: "- - - Allah sent down the Book in truth - - -". = there is no doubt that the Quran is from Allah.
  10. 2/209: "- - - Allah is - - - Wise". = He knows what he does - including how to instruct his followers.
  11. 2/220: "He (Allah*) is - - - Wise". See 2/209 just above.
  12. 2/257: "And Allah - - - knoweth all things". = He has perfect knowledge - also about how to tell things so that they are easily understood, like he tells the Quran is.
  13. 2/260: "He (Allah*) is - - - Wise". See 2/209 above.
  14. 2/261: "- - - He (Allah*) knoweth all things". = No doubt he also knows perfectly how to use the correct words to say exactly what he means.
  15. 2/268: "- - - He (Allah*) knoweth all things". See 2/257 above.
  16. 2/282: "And Allah is well acquainted with all things". = he knows everything, included how best to make people understand what he wants to tell them.
  17. 2/285: "- - - (that which*) hath been revealed - - - from (Allah*) - - -". The Quran is from Allah.

     

    These are quotes from just one surah. There are many, many more saying the same: The Quran is from Allah, Allah knows everything, and he is perfectly wise, so that he knows everything also about how to express himself in ways not possible to misunderstand - or not to understand.

    And we add some more from scattered around the Quran:

    1. 1: 3/7a: "- - - the Book (the Quran*): in it are verses basic and fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book - - -". Very clear: The texts are meant like they are written.
    2. 2: 3/7b: "- - - others (other verses) are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the parts that is allegorical - - -". (We guess that the verses clearly told are allegories or similar, but then explained the meaning of, so that they are not allegories any more, are not included here.) A very clear message to all those who try to explain away by claiming they are allegories, etc.: The texts are to be understood literally, and only perverse people look for hidden allegories.
    3. 3: 3/7c: "- - - but no one knows the hidden meanings (the meaning of hidden allegories*) except Allah". Another clear message to the ones making up "allegories", etc.: The hidden allegories in the Quran only Allah can understand. This means that if you make up claimed hidden "allegories" you are able to "understand" and "explain" - even better than Allah - these are not from the Quran and Allah (because those only Allah can understand), but false ones from you. And false ones from you have no value - on the contrary: You have made them up to make people believe differently from what the Quran and Allah really says. Infidelity simply - or perhaps you serve Iblis by changing the meaning of Allah's clear words?
    4. 4: 3/184: "- - - the Book of Enlightenment (the Quran*)". When Allah without reservation names a book every Muslim is obliged to read "the Book of Enlightenment", it means that it will enlighten everybody. This means that there are no really hidden meanings - allegories - readers shall seek for behind the literal texts, because most people are not able to find and explain allegories, at least not so that they are sure their explanations are correct - and this even more so if the hidden allegories are of a kind only Allah can understand (see 3/7 above).
    5. 5: 4/87: "And whose word can be truer than Allah's?" The ones claiming that this and this is an allegory, even when this is not said in the Quran, and that the meaning thus is something different from what Allah himself says in the book, at the same time tell that their words are truer than the Quran's and Allah's.
    6. 6: 11/2a: "- - - a Book, with verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) - - -". Identical to 3/7a above. That Allah repeats this, means that he strengthen this piece of information.
    7. 7: 11/2b: "- - - a Book, with verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning), further explained in details - - -". If Allah has explained thing in detail, who are then able to give truer explanations? - f.x. by claiming that Allah's words in the Quran do not tell his true meaning, and that your meaning is truer than his words when you "explain" what you claim are hidden allegories?
    8. 8: 11/2c: "- - - a Book, with verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning), further explained in details - from One Who is Wise and Well-Acquainted (with all things)". When you change Allah's words in the Quran by claiming they are allegories in spite of that Allah himself says they are "of established meaning" = to be understood literary, is then the reason that you are wiser and better acquainted with all things than Allah?
    9. 9: 15/1: "- - - a Quran that makes things clear". This contradicts all claims about hidden allegories, necessary to be "explained" by intelligent and wise humans - hidden allegories are not clear speech.
    10. 10: 18/2: "(He (Allah*) hath made it (his words in the Quran*) Straight (and clear) - - -". A sentence not possible to misunderstand: Allah's words in the Quran are straight and clear, and his meanings not hidden behind hidden allegories, etc.
    11. 11: 20/113: "Thus have We (Allah*) sent down - an Arabic Quran - and explained therein some of the warnings - - -". Who are you who believe you can explain the details better - or even change Allah's words and claim them to mean something else than he says, by claiming they are allegories or something - than the omniscient god Allah?

     

    These just are from the 20 first chapters. There are many more - see at the beginning of this chapter.

    ----------------------------------------

    Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

     

    All this means that Muslims claiming that some texts in the book are not easy and clear and correctly explained by Allah (f.x. 6/114da, 41/3da, 75/19 - not to mention 3/7b), but are allegories, metaphors, parables, etc. (a standard Muslim way to "explain" away errors and difficult points) in the Quran, tell that the Quran and Muhammad are wrong or lying all these places, each time they claim that this and this is not clear speech, but hidden meanings/parables.

    WHO CAN MAKE A TEKST MORE STRIGHT AND CLEAR, AND WHO IS BETTER TO EXPLAIN CORRECTLY AND IN DETAIL, SO THAT PEOPLE UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT HE MEANS, THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

    All the same one of the standard ways of "explaining away" errors and other bad points in the Quran, is to claim that Allah did not mean what he said, but something else - a parable, a metaphor, an allegory - and that the clever Muslims easily can help him and explain what he "really" meant. But this as said means that they indirectly, but clearly states that Muhammad lied in the Quran each time he said the texts there were easy and clear.

    Should we thank them for confirming that Allah and Muhammad lie in the Quran?

    Or maybe they are trying to corrupt or falsify quranic texts to make the Quran look right?

    AGAIN: "A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion". Here it is ever so easy to prove that these are quotes from the Quran (Abdullah Yusuf Ali's translation). And again there only is one possible conclusion to make: Either the claims that the texts in the Quran are easy and literal and explained in detail by Allah where nothing else is indicated, are wrong, or the many claims from Islam and Muslims claiming that the texts very many places do not mean what it say, but has a different and more or less hidden meaning (claims to "explain away" errors, contradictions, difficult points, etc.) are wrong.

    Some other quotes about proofs and invalid or made up proofs:

    1. "Strong claims need strong proofs.
    2. "A claim without a proof maybe dismissed without a proof".
    3. "Claims are cheap, but only proofs are proofs".
    4. "The use of invalid proofs normally proves that something is fishy".
    5. "The cheat or deceiver naturally must rely on claims pretending to be facts or proofs".
    6. "A made up "proof" makes the man very suspect".
    7. "A strong belief is not a proof - not necessarily even a truth"
    8. .
    9. "Wrong claims and invalid "proofs" are working tools of the cheat".
    10. "A student with correct facts gets a more correct answer than 20 professors with wrong facts". (Invalid, "signs", claims, "proofs", etc. of course are wrong facts.)
    11. And we may add from Peer Gynt in his original language: "Naar utgangspunktet er som galest, blir resultatet tidt originalest" - freely translated: "When you conclude from wrong claims/wrong facts/invalid "proofs"/etc., you get wrong conclusions".

     

    ######Either the Muslims claiming that there are lots of places in the Quran where the texts mean something else than what it really is saying - claiming it is allegories, etc. - are lying, or Muhammad and Allah each time when stating that the quranic texts are easy and clear and literal where nothing else is clearly indicated, were lying in the Quran.

    ----------------------------------------

    The unavoidable conclusion is:

    Either the claims from Muslims about all the unclear points/mistakes in the Quran they have to explain, and indirectly that Allah is clumsy and no good at expressing himself, are wrong. Or Allah is lying when he says that he has full and perfect knowledge about everything (included how to use exact and right words and expressions), are wrong.

    Is Allah is clumsy and backward - or lying in the Quran about his knowledge and wisdom - and they are right in what they claim: That Allah needs help from clever humans to express himself correctly?

    #077 54/17a: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence and there are a number of similar sentences in the Quran, so that there is no doubt Muhammad really meant it. It even is written 4 times just in this small chapter and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” .

    Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

    ######

    More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what are parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

    ######That the Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran is clear, explained by Allah, and to be understood literally, you find f.x. these places: 3/7b, 3/138a, 6/114ca, 11/1b, 15/1b, 17/12h, 18/1d-e, 18/2a, 19/97b, 20/113b+c, 24/34, 24/54j, 26/2a, 27/1b-d, 28/2, 36/69e, 37/117c, 39/28b, 41/3da, 43/2a, 43/3c, 44/29b, 44/2b-c, 44/13d, 44/58b, 54/17a, 54/22b, 54/32a+b, 54/40a, 65/11f, and 75/19 Worth remembering each time a Muslim or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the text means something different from what it says. In such cases either the Muslim/Islam lies when he/she claims the text means something different from what it says (the claim often is that it is a parable or something), or the Quran lies when it says that the book uses clear texts where nothing else is indicated.

    The listed points are all collected in the beginning of this chapter and in 44/58b.

    Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to explain what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims lying under such "explanations".)

    WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

    Also see 54/17b below.

     

    078 54/17b: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” It clearly is in plain words which are easy to understand – and the allegories mostly explained or easy to understand. But no! - according to Islam and to many Muslims – much of it is allegories, parables, etc. with very hidden or different meanings - - - at least if that is the only way Muslims can “explain” away errors or mistakes. Also see 3/7 and 11/1 above. ALSO SEE 54/17a JUST ABOVE.

    ***079 54/22b: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories, parables, etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times just in chapter 54 and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” . This is mentioned at least these places: 3/7, 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/17, 54/22, 54/32, and 54/40.

    080 54/32a: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -”. This in a way is very correct – the language is plain and simple though often unclear or with two or more possible meanings, and the Quran itself makes it clear that one is to understand it literally (though many Muslims claim that verses with mistakes are allegories, parables, etc. – it is an easy way to use to flee from difficult questions).

    The statement that it is easy to understand, also means that it is to be understood like it is written - if not it was not "easy to understand".

    But it is all the same at least partly wrong – partly because there are so many places where it is difficult to guess which word is really meant. Separate books are needed to explain the Quran - there are many such ones. And if you read any of the good ones, you will find that even today there are many points in the book Islam has not been able to understand, and even many more points they still do not know the exact meaning of - or which one of two or more meanings is the correct one. But it is easy to see that Muhammad meant it was easy and not complicated to understand - and an omniscient god had been able to compose a book that was possible to understand and impossible to misunderstand or to not understand, just like Muhammad claimed and surely believed and intended. Who composed the Quran?

    ***082 54/40a: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times just here in chapter 54, and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” . This is mentioned at least these places: 3/7, 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/17, 54/22, 54/32, and 54/40.

    There is no doubt whatsoever about that the Quran itself means that the Quran is to be understood literally mainly. And that to look for hidden meanings is wrong. Remind any Muslim trying to “explain” away problems by pretending or claiming they are allegories, about this fact.

    **083 65/11f: “- - - the Signs of Allah (are*) containing clear explanations - - -”. Wrong. There is not one single of the “Signs” referred in the Quran, which has any value, neither as proof nor as explanation (with the possible explanation of some taken from the Bible, but they in case talk about another god, Yahweh). The reasons are that they without exception just are lose statements or are building on other invalid statements, “signs“ or “proofs” - totally invalid. If a person consciously uses such invalid arguments, they are the hallmarks of a cheat and a deceiver. No god would use them. Also see 2/39b, 2/299a, 2/299b, 30/9 and 30/30 above.

    ###084 75/19: "- - - it is for Us (Allah*) to explain it (the Quran - this refers to 75/16*) (and make it clear) - - -". A very clear and not to be misunderstood message. And all the same as soon as a Muslim sees that the clear text Allah has explained and made clear, is wrong, he claims Allah has been unable to express what he really meant; the meaning is something different - an allegory or something - and he - a mere human - has to help Allah by explaining what he "really" meant. This is one of Muslims' and Islam's 3 - 4 - 5 most used ways out when explaining away mistakes, contradictions, etc. in the Quran, when they do not have real arguments.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    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.
