Allah in the Quran, Chapter 43

 

Chapter 43

IS ALLAH GOOD AND MERCIFUL?

 

001 We do not think this question needs any more comments than those given below. We just remind you that words - even big and glorious and grandiose ones - are cheap, whereas demands, orders, rules, and deeds are reality. Words may be bluffs and deceit - and often are from self proclaimed prophets - whereas reality is reliable.

###### Another - and serious - point is that to "explain" that the Quran means something different from what it really says, is to corrupt it.

Also: What is sure, is that no god ever made a holy book as full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, unclear language, etc. like the Quran. ###### Besides: Which one of the 20-30 (29 + many not accepted) known versions of the Quran (see 15/9c) - if any (and there were even more versions through the times) - is in case the correct one?

Finally: Always when you read the Quran, Hadiths, and other Islamic books, you should remember that Muhammad accepted the use of and himself used dishonesty in many forms in words and deeds. Even if the names are younger, it was he who institutionalized dishonesty like al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), the use of deceit ("war is deceit" - and "everything" is war), betrayal (f.x. the peace delegation from Khaybar), and even the disuse of oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the star case 3/54 (if Allah could cheat, cheating is ok)), which also includes the disuse of words and promises, as they are weaker than oaths = when oaths can be disused, so can words and promises. On top of this it is very clear from the Quran and all other central Islamic books, that Muhammad also liked respect and power and women. Combine these lusts with his acceptance of and personal use of dishonesty - even the gravest kinds: How reliable is that kind of men normally? - and how true and reliable are their never proved claims and tales?

*002 1/1a:

"In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying (see 2/2b below), thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of slaves and of girls and women - free and captured - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and the corresponding demands, deeds and introduced rules and moral, etc, we personally believe in the demands and deeds and rules and the moral. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds, enforced rules and moral are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities, not from propaganda.(Is there something symbolic in that in the very first line of the Quran, we must point to rules for and use of dishonesty, partly immoral moral code, partly immoral and unjust laws, etc. in the book, and thus with Muhammad and in Islam?)

#003 1/1d: "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful." Allah is in Islam said to have 99 names - these are 3 of them. The name Allah derives from the name of the old pagan main god in Mecca and Arabia, "al-Lah", which by the way means "the god", and NOT "God" like Muslims like to claim (they often use the name "God" for Allah in the west, because it camouflages some of the differences between Allah and God/Yahweh (not the same god in spite of Islamic claims - the basics of the religions are too different and the differences cannot be explained away by the never documented Islamic claim that the Bible is falsified, as science long since has proved this to be untrue - and Islam has proved it even stronger by being unable to find one single proved falsification among tens of thousands of relevant manuscripts or fragments older than 610 AD). Simply "the god". This name again is connected to the ancient god "Il", later "al-Ilah", and Allah may originally have been the Moon god - the moon (Luna) being something more benevolent than the scorching sun (Helios or Sol) of Arabia. Muhammad simply took over this Pagan god, changed his position from main god to the only god, and changed his name slightly from "al-Lah/Allah" (both were used) to only "Allah". Plus claimed that Allah just was the correct name for the old Jewish god Yahweh, whom Christians know as God. Everything as normal for Muhammad without the tiniest proof or documentation.

al-Lah also may be connected to the old pagan Arab god Hubal (perhaps another name for al-Lah, or al-Lah took over for Hubal in Mecca - and Hubal/Hu'bal/al-Lah in case may - may - have been influenced of the Ba'al/Baal/Bal religions in the old Middle East).

The history of the god Allah:

The first we know he was a main god named Il further east (Iraq?).

He drifted into Arabia, perhaps with immigrants who settled there. Here he became the moon god al-Ilah, at least in the southern part of Arabia. It is no co-incidence that Allah's symbol is the (crescent) moon.

His name slowly changed to al-Lah, and sometimes Allah. (Easier to pronounce.)

He outcompeted the moon god Hubal in the Kabah temple in Mecca, and he became the main god (Or Hubal was another name for al-Lah, as mentioned perhaps with connection to Ba'al/Baal/Bal, but this is far from sure).

Muhammad took him over and declared that he for one thing was the only god, and for another that he was the same god as the old Jewish and Christian god, Yahweh. This in spite of that the two was very different, had very different teachings, very different heavens, and very different moral codes, etc. - so much so that the differences prove with mathematical strength that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god (and thus that Jesus (and the other Jewish prophets) neither in the same line of prophets nor even in the same religion.

We also remind you that for OT there is an extra proof for that it is not falsified: The OT texts in the Qumran scrolls (from 150- 50 BC) are identical to in the Bible today. The Qumran scriptures are the same ones which Jesus used, and no prophet like Jesus - like you find him in both the Bible and in the Quran - would use false holy scriptures (there is no indication neither in the Bible nor in the Quran for that Jesus found religious errors in the old Jewish scriptures).

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤

We may add that originally Hubal was the moon god in Arabia, and some sources say the Kabah originally was his temple and dedicated to him. But when Muhammad was born, al-Lah - sometimes named Allah - may have taken over as Arabia's main god. It is a bit ironic that a building dedicated to an old moon god (be it Hubal or al-Lah/Allah - because also Allah had been a moon god and the crescent moon still is his symbol) was and is the most holy place on Earth for a claimed only and claimed omnipotent god - and as ironic is the fact that if Muhammad had been born earlier, Islam's god might have been named Hubal, not Allah (Muhammad simply took over the claimed mightiest of the pagan Arab gods, and earlier Hubal was reckoned to be the most powerful one - and the moon god like al-Lah had been and perhaps still was).

########We have not mentioned much about al-Lah/Allah's position in the Kabah before Muhammad. The reason is that it is quite unclear. There are the two gods mentioned as the main god for the Quraysh tribe = the main god in the Kabah: Hubal, the moon god, and al-Lah/Allah - also a moon god, at least in southern parts of Arabia. There are clear indications, but no proofs, for that these two really and simply were two names for the same god - perhaps with Hubal as his "personal" name and al-Lah/Allah his title (al-Lah/Allah means "the god", or in this case "the main god").

There also are indications for that there were connections between Hubal and the Ba'al known from f.x. the Bible - same god and similar name, but in another variety of religion. If this is true, the Quran and Islam are way beyond the Milky Way when they forward claims like Zachariya prayed to Allah/Hubal/Ba'al, or that Jesus preached about Allah/Hubal/Ba'al, as in those times such connections would be known, even if they are forgotten today, and Ba'al represented the Devil to the Jews of those times.

To be a little more detailed:

Hubal was a central god in the old pagan Arabia. But his history and his role through the times are not entirely clear. Some sources claim he was a version of al-Lah/Allah, something Islam vehemently denies. Other sources tells What is clear is that he like said was a central god in Mecca (his name also is found in what today is Syria and Iraq), and that he was a god for divination and a moon god. Some sources say that the Kabah temple - later mosque - originally was dedicated to Hubal. The second part of his name, -bal, may indicate that he was one of the gods called Ba'l, or Ba'al.

Hubal was an imported god in Mecca. The first place one finds him, is among the Nabateans - a North Arab people in what is now north Arabia, Sinai, Syria, and Jordan, and as far east as Euphrates. Also Islam agrees to that Hubal was an imported god. It is not clear exactly where the Hubal in the Kabah in Mecca was imported from, but it is clear it was from the north.

This raises 2 questions:

1: Was Hubal another name for al-Lah (also named Allah)? Al-Lah was known also among the northern Arab tribes, and there are several points pointing to that Hubal really was another name for him. It f.x. is highly unlikely that the Meccans (tradition tells it was done by a man named Amr ibn Luhayy) would buy a heavy and very expensive statue (made from red carnelian, but with his right hand from gold) and transport it hundreds of miles through desert and wilderness to Mecca, and there placed him in a big temple which seems to already have been dedicated to al-Lah (Karen Armstrong - at the time of Muhammad it was dedicated to the name Hubal, which seems to have been the name of the statue), unless it was a statue in some way connected to al-Lah. This also because in the old Arabia there usually was only one male god in a temple. There might be one or several female ones in addition, but only one male one.

There also is another point we have not been aware of: Normally one reads that in the Kabah there were 360 idols. (We have wondered how there could be space for that many - the Kabah is large, but not that large.) But it turns out that this is not quite correct - the majority was placed outside the temple. (Malise Ruthven: Islam in the world, p. 15). Then it was quite possible to have only one male god inside, and of course the main god. There is no doubt and it is not disputed that the statue of Hubal was inside the temple. There also is no doubt that he was the moon god.

It is known that al-Lah - earlier named al-Ilah - was a moon god. Even today al-Lah/Allah (and Islam) has the (crescent) moon as his symbol.

Further: It is told that 'Abd-al-Muttalib (the grandfather of Muhammad) once stood beside the statue of Hubal and prayed to al-Lah/Allah (both names were used at that time). Islam drops the rule that there should be only one male god in a temple/mosque, and tells that this must mean there also had to be an idol for al-Lah/Allah inside. He stood beside Hubal and prayed to another idol, they claim.

But if we stick to the rule that there only was one male god in a temple/mosque, this story simply tells that he stood near the statue and prayed to al-Lah/Allah via the statue named Hubal.

Further: When Muhammad cleaned out the Kabah when he took over Mecca, it is described that the idols outside, the idols of al-Lat, al-Uzza, Manat (the 3 main female goddesses), and the statue of Hubal were destroyed. But if there is told about the destruction of an idol for the pagan al-Lah/Allah, we have overlooked it. And if no such statue was destroyed, there was no such one - Muhammad had all idols/statues destroyed. This in case means that there only was one male god represented inside: Hubal/al-Lah/Allah.

##Our conclusion: There is no doubt and not disputed that al-Lah and Allah were two names for the same god. There is no doubt, and it is not disputed that Muhammad took over this god, declared he was the only real god, declared that he in reality was the same god as Yahweh, and accepted only the name Allah. When it comes to Hubal, we find that it is likely, but not proved - but far from disproved - that he was a third name for the god Hubal/al-Lah/Allah. (Islam strongly denies this, but have so weak facts that they have to use slander, etc. as strong arguments (repeated use of words like "missioners" is slander in this connection - and there are other negative words used.)

2: Is the name Ba'al involved?

Ba'al or Baal (or Bol) originally was a title - meaning something like "Lord" or "Master" - and was used connected to several gods around the inner end of the Mediterranean - the Levant and Asia Minor - and was also the name of the top god to the Canaanites and Phoenicians. The name is known from at least 1400 BC in f.x. Egypt. Over time it became parts of some names or daily names - it f.x. is likely that the name HaBaal simply meant "the god", perhaps in the meaning "the main god". On the Arab peninsula this seems not to have been the case normally. But Hubal as mentioned was an imported statue from the north, and in the north Ba'al, etc. was well known. There are good indications for that Hubal derives from HaBaal or similar. Our conclusion here is that if it is not likely, then at least there is a good possibility that the name Hubal was connected to Ba'al.

If this is correct, this fact would have been known at that time and earlier, even though such details are forgotten now - the Jews would have known very well if the neighboring god al-Lah really was the same god as Hubal in another neighboring country, even before the name Hubal was exported to Mecca, and if Hubal had any relationship to the Ba'al concept. And if this is the case, Muhammad can just forget to claim that Yahweh = Allah (=Hubal/al-Lah/Allah) - for the religious parts of the Jews Ba'al was closely related to the Devil all the time from the old prophets and up. If Jesus had talked about any god related in any way to Ba'al, he had been a looser from the first day.

##004 1/1–7a. “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah The Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds; Most Gracious, Most Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee do we worship and Thine aid we seek. Show us the straight way, The way of those Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray”.

####This really is a bad one, as it is a prayer to Allah, it is not Allah speaking (when Muhammad is to repeat what Allah says, the Quran gives the order “Say”) - and besides Allah does not pray to himself!! A clear mistake compared to what Islam claims: It is all sent down by Allah (The Quran is said to be either made by Allah, or never made, but has always existed - the last claim is impossible, though, as angels are speaking - and speaking to humans - at least one place (41/30-32) in the Quran (this also according to Muslim scholars), which proves that the Quran cannot have been made until after at least the first angels were created and not even until after the first humans existed. Actually Muhammad speaks also other places in the Quran than here - at least 8-9 placed it is said (1/1-7, 2/286c, 6/104c, 6/114, 11/2b, 19/36b, 27/91a, 42/10a and 51/50-51a) - so when can the Quran have been made? - not until after Muhammad was born and a grown man.) A clear mistake. (Unless predestination in Islam is 100%, in spite of that the Quran denies this some places.)

The places where it is clear that it is Muhammad who is speaking, contradict the statements that the Quran is from Heaven, made by Allah before the creation of the world, or never made but existed since eternity - it as indicated above cannot have been made before Muhammad said what he said (at least not if man has free will).

It tells something that in the very beginning of the Quran, and in what is said to in a way to be the essence of the book, there are things seriously wrong, compared to the for Islam very fundamental - but unproved - statement that the book is sent down by an omniscient god, and is perfect and without mistakes.

*005 1/1-7b: “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, Praise be to Allah - - - Thee do we (Muhammad and Muslims*) worship and thine aid we seek. Show us the strait way - - -“. The Quran starts with a contradiction. All the places where Muhammad quotes Allah starts with the word “Say”. It is not present here, which means that it is Muhammad or Muslims who are praying - as said above; in a book claimed and presumed to have been made by Allah at least before Adam, since also Adam (who in reality never existed as man developed from earlier primates according to science) was introduced to the book, but perhaps have existed since eternity – which means at least since before the Universe was created some 13.7 billion years ago). And a book which is the revered and unalterable "mother book" in Heaven (13/39, 43/4, 85/21-22) – revered by Allah and his angels in his own “home”. Impossible and a solid internal contradiction.

Muslims try to explain it with that Allah is omniscient and knows everything, and of course knew this, too – that Muhammad would be praying, and included it in the "mother book" at the beginning of time.

The problem only is that this is even theoretically impossible if man has free will – and if man has no free will, then for one thing the Quran is lying, and for another thing: How then explain that all the bad and unjust persons in reality are acting according to Allah's wishes, and how justify that a presumably good and benevolent god forces humans to behave in such ways that they end in Hell?

The combination of that Allah knows everything long before – not to mention that he decides and predestines everything – and free will for man is an absolute impossibility, even for gods. Actually it is a version of “the Time Travel Paradox”, and that paradox is long since proved unsolvable.

An easy way to understand this is:

  1. If Allah is omniscient: The moment Allah says: Now I know the future, man can do nothing that changes what Allah knows, because this would make Allah’s knowledge wrong. Man has no free will from that moment (and remember that Allah has decided and knows your life since before you were born, and in this special case much longer - he f.x. according to Hadiths decides your future and whether you are to end in Hell or in Heaven when the fetus which is to become you, is 4 months old = 5 months before you even are born) – .
  2. If man has free will: Then it is not possible for Allah to know the future, because a man can always change his mind one more time, after Allah thought that now he knows the future. Then Allah is not omniscient, or at least not fully clairvoyant.
  3. Some Muslims try to explain this away with claiming that man has partly free will - an expression never used in the Quran, and we also never have found an explanation for what it means. But this "explanation" is meaningless, as if a person cannot change his mind about something, then he has no free will in that case, and is just a puppet. Besides as mentioned: The claim that man has free will is never restricted in any way in the Quran. And even if man only has a minor part of 1% free will, this means he can change his mind at least sometimes - - - and Allah's knowledge suddenly is wrong.

Actually Islam admits they are unable to explain this – probably their largest – contradiction. Their solution simply is to say: We cannot understand or explain it, but is has to be true, as Allah say so in the Quran (!!!) We quote from "The Message of the Quran" - a book certified by Al-Azhar Al-Sharif Islamic Research Academy (Al-Azhar in Cairo is one of the 2-3 foremost Islamic universities in the world),(A6/141 - In the English 2008 edition A6/143): "- - - the real relationship between Allah's knowledge of the future (and, therefore, the ineluctability of what is to happen in the future) on the one side, and man's free will, on the other - two propositions which, on the face of it, seem to contradict one another - is beyond man's comprehension; but since both are postulated by Allah (in the Quran - a book full of mistakes*), both must be true.

The ultimate defeat for intelligence and knowledge. And the ultimate victory for blind belief and occultism.

But as for this explaining away of how the prayer is taken into in the Quran – a copy of the claimed very old "mother book" - there are only these 5 possible solutions:

  1. Allah was praying to himself in the "mother book". Too ridiculous to discuss.
  2. Muhammad was really praying, but outside the text from the "mother book" and then adding it into the Quran (perhaps by Uthman?). But how much more of the texts in the Quran is then from outside the "mother book" - just added to it?
  3. It really is from the "mother book", but Allah or Gabriel forgot the essential word "say"– but how many more words are then forgotten in the Quran?
  4. It - the order "Say" - was in the "mother book" and neither Allah nor Gabriel forgot – but Muhammad did. But then – if he forgot something, how much more did he forget which should have been in the Quran? (There is an old Muslim tradition saying that some 100 verses were forgotten when Uthman made his version of the Quran.)
  5. Muhammad or someone made up the Quran or at least this surah, and forgot to pretend it was from Allah.

Pick your choice.

There are similar contradictions - Muhammad speaking - with the claim that it is all from Allah, at least in these verses: 2/286, 6/104, 6/114, 11/2b, 19/36b, 27/91a, 42/10a and 51/50-51a. In addition there as mentioned above, is at least one place where it is clear that angels are speaking (41/30-32) - which makes it impossible that the book can be from eternity, as at least some of the angels had to be created before the book (if not angels could not speak in the book (and as they spoke to humans, the book could not be made before there were humans) - and actually the similar goes for Muhammad - he could not speak in the Quran before he was born.

006 2/000 "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying, thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free and captured - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we personally believe in the demands and deeds. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities like deeds and demands, not from propaganda.

If Allah exists and lives also according to the surahs from Medina, he definitely is neither the most gracious nor the most merciful - f.x. Jesus by far was more merciful, etc. than both Allah and Muhammad put together, if the old books tell the truth.

007 2/143q: "(Allah is*) full of kindness, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

008 2/157b: "- - - Mercy (from Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a and see how strongly you believe in a merciful Allah.

009 2/160d: "- - - I (Allah) am - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

010 2/163c: "(Allah is*) Most Gracious, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

011 2/173e: "For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 2/2b above.

012 2/178g: "- - - a Mercy from your (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*)". See 1/1a above.

013 2/192: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

014 2/199d: "For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 2/2b above.

015 2/218e: "- - - the Mercy of Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

016 2/225c: "- - - He (Allah*) is Oft-Forgiving, Most forbearing". See 1/1a above.

017 2/226d: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

018 2/235d: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Forbearing". See 1/1a above.

019 2/286f: "- - - (Allah's*) mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

020 3/89c: "- - - verily Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 1/1a above.

021 3/128a: "Not for thee (Muhammad/Muslims*), (but for Allah), is the decision: Whether He turn in mercy to them (the ones opposing Allah*), or punish them - - -". This was in 625 AD. Later when the Muslims grew military stronger, Muhammad - and his successors - decided whom to "punish". And they really "punished" many.

022 3/129e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

023 3/132e: "- - - obtain Mercy (from Allah*)." Impossible unless Allah exists. And unless he is merciful - there is a great difference between claims and underlying reality about this in the Quran - and we always believe the realities.

024 3/152j: "- - - Allah is full of grace to those who believe". Wrong - if this was true, he f.x. had not sent them into battles risking mutilation (hardly ever mentioned by Muhammad*) and death, not to mention moral destruction (accustom them to dishonesty, theft, inhumanities, killing, etc.) to "test" them for things any omniscient god knew long time before, and even more so if he on top of all predestined everything they said and did, like the Quran states many places.

##025 3/157b: “And if ye are slain, or die, in the way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all they could amass”. Nearly no matter how bad a man (nothing is said about women) you have been, to be killed for Allah, is the sure way to go to Paradise. A mighty - and cheap - way to get warriors.

The old Vikings “knew” that if they were killed in battle, they went to Valhalla - that made them ferocious warriors. In Islam the sure way to Paradise with its lazy luxury life and plenty of women, had and has the same effect.

There are two questions, though: Who decides which wars are wanted by Allah? - if you look at history, it seems that a lot of the wars Muslims have fought, in reality were for wealth and power, but mostly they all the same have been declared Holy Wars, a few times even by both sides, when both parts were Muslims. And: What if the Quran is invented or not telling the full truth? - all the mistakes and contradictions, etc. in the book make one wonder (or stronger). At least no god makes such a quality book. If the Quran is not from a god, this promise of Paradise also is not true.

In the wars between Sunni and Shi’ia and in power struggles among leaders, a lot of warriors have been cheated - both parts in a war between Muslims cannot be fighting for Allah and the “right” belief, but all warriors on both sides often were told they fought against enemies of Allah. If at least one part was right, the warriors from the opposite part had a rude awakening in Hell, even if they were told and believed they were fighting enemies of Allah. Not to mention when all was a struggle for power among leaders, and Allah did not agree at all that any of them were fighting for him - they only were sinning by killing fellow Muslims “without a good reason”, which is a grave sin worthy of Hell.

And even worse: If the Quran is made up or does not tell the truth on this point, no comment is necessary. Especially not if there exists another, true religion somewhere - a religion Muslims are prohibited to look for. Where will the Muslims end in case if there is a next life?

As for Allah forgiving: Also see 2/187d and 67/9c above.

026 3/159a: "- - - the Mercy of Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

027 3/180c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Grace - - -". See 1/1a above.

028 4/12d: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Forbearing - - -". See 1/1a above.

029 4/16c: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful - - -". Read 1/1a above and see if you agree.

030 4/25l: "And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above and see if you agree.

031 4/29d: "- - - for verily Allah hath been to you (Muslims*) most Merciful". It definitely is no proved verity/truth. See 1/1a above, and add the introduction of a war religion you have to participate in. And there in addition is the question; does he exist?

032 4/64i: "- - - Allah (is*) - - - Most Merciful." See 1/1a above.

033 4/96c: "For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

034 4/100h: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

035 4/106b: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

036 4/113b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

037 4/129b: "- - - Allah (is*) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

038 4/152g: "- - - Allah (is*) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

039 4/175c: "- - - Mercy and Grace from Himself (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you agree.

040 5/3n: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

041 5/34b "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

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

######042 5/35g: “- - - strive with might and main (see 5/35a-b*) in His (Allah’s*) cause - - -”. For us this is one of the most detestable points in the entire Quran and Islam: Fight and steal and rob and mutilate and rape and extort and enslave and hate and murder and get rich and suppress in the name of your god, and as a service to your god - a claimed good and benevolent god!

The same god as Yahweh? Jesus and Muhammad in the same religion? Don't ask silly questions.

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

043 5/39b: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

044 5/54g: "- - - the Grace of Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

045 5/74d: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1b.

046 5/101f: "- - - Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Forbearing." See 1/1a above.

047 6/12d: "He (Allah*) hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy." See 1/1a and 2/233g above. A rule of mercy? In cases where populist words shall cover harsh realities, we always believe the realities.

048 6/16: "- - - Allah's Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

####049 6/45b: "Of the wrongdoers (non-Muslims*) the last remnant was cut off (killed*). Praise be to Allah - - -". ########This "Praise be to Allah" is one of the points which makes Islam a morally sick and distasteful religion. A claimed benevolent and good god who is to be praised for our stealing, rape, repeated atrocities, apartheid, and mass murder, and for the reason they had another religion only, is distasteful outside our vocabulary, and as wrong morally. We are sorry - we have big vocabularies from lives in reading and learning and international contacts "en gross", but we do not have strong enough words for this.

050 6/54c: "- - - your Lord (Allah*) hath inscribed for Himself (the rule of) Mercy - - -". This surah is from 621 AD and Mecca - a time when Islam still was a quite peaceful religion, and perhaps these words were not too bad at that time. But the religion changed very much from 622 AD on and the flight to Medina - a fact Muslims never mention, and always try to avoid explaining - to a brutal religion of war. This sentence was not true after ca. 624 AD or may be 1-2 years earlier. Besides: Why does Allah - or Muhammad - suddenly change the religion so brutally much, from relatively peaceful to a religion of war?

051 6/54f: "- - - He (Allah*) is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

052 6/133a: "(Allah is*) Full of Mercy". According to many words in the Quran he is, but not according to many demands, orders, and rules. And reality is much more reliable than words.

053 6/145f: "- - - (Allah*) is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

054 6/147a: "If they accuse thee (Muhammad*) of falsehood, say: 'Your Lord (Allah*) is full of Mercy all-embracing; but from people in guilt never will His wrath be turned back.'" Muhammad never was able to prove even a comma about Allah or about his own connection to a god - even though it should have been easy for his claimed omnipotent god to do so. Muhammad had to resort to fast words and explaining everything away. Here he uses a treats for waylaying the debate.

055 6/155d: "- - - receive mercy (from Allah*) - - -". Please read the surahs from Medina - omit the glossy words and read the reality; the demands, the orders, the imposed rules, the deeds. Is Allah able to show mercy? - - - if he at all exists?

056 6/165e: "- - - He (Allah*) is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

057 7/49: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

058 7/56d: "- - - call on (pray to*) Him (Allah*) - - - for the Mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good.

How can the claimed mercy of Allah come to light or have any effect, when everything already is predestined according to Allah's plan - a plan nobody and nothing can change according to the Quran?

059 7/56e: "- - - the Mercy of Allah - - -". See 1/1a above.

060 7/63d: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy?" See 1/1a above.

061 7/72a: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

062 7/151b: "- - - Thou (indicated Allah*) art the Most Merciful - - -". See 1/1a above.

063 7/155h: "- - - Thy (claimed to be Allah*) mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.>/p>

064 7/156b: "- - - My (Allah's*) Mercy extendeth to all things". Read 1/1a and see if you believe this. Words are cheap, facts are reality.

065 7/167b: "- - - He (Allah*) is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

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

067 8/69e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

068 8/70e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

069 9/5o: "- - - for Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

*070 9/21b: “Their (terrorists/warriors*) Lord (Allah*) doth give them glad tidings of a Mercy (that terrorists/warriors for Allah are forgiven practically any sin*) from Himself (from Allah personally*), of His good pleasure (from the fighting and murdering they have done for the good and kind and benevolent god*), and the Gardens for them, wherein are delights (earth-like riches, luxury and women*) that endures”. One more at least 110% proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that the Jewish prophets, not to mention Jesus, were not in the same line of prophets as Muhammad claimed to be. See 9/20h above.

As for forgiving from Allah: Also see 2/187d and 67/9c above.

071 9/21d: "- - - a Mercy from Himself (Allah*) - - -"Please read 1/1a and see how merciful he is. Reality is more true than nice words.

072 9/27a: (A36): “Again will Allah, after this, turn (in mercy) to whom He will - - -.” What does this refer to? – Razi believes to the Muslims who fought badly shortly before at Hunayn in 630 AD. Tabari and others believe it means “infidels” generally. Another small detail which had not been unclear if a god had made the book. And a detail much bigger after all than “the last comma.”

073 9/27b: "- - - Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

074 9/71i: "- - - Allah's*) mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

075 9/91g: "- - - Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

076 9/99h: "- - - soon will Allah admit them (good Muslims*) to his Mercy (paradise*)". Often claimed, never proved. And as for Allah's mercy, see 1/1a above.

077 9/99i: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". If Allah made the surahs from Medina, he is very far from most merciful. Destroying lives and communities, torture, rape, enslavement, murder, mass murder, apartheid and suppression and more - little mercy.

078 9/102c: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

079 9/104e: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

080 9/106a: "- - - (Allah's*) mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

081 9/117f: "- - - He (Allah*) is - - - Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

082 10/46d: "- - - (- - - Our (Allah's*) Mercy) - - -". See 1/1a above.

083 10/58b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". Read the surahs from Medina and see how much mercy there really is in Allah. Also see 1/1a above.

084 10/86a: "- - - Thy (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

085 10/107e: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Please read the 22+ surahs from Medina and see if you are able to believe this afterwards - it is impossible, except for some of those who are unable to see other humans than "we, the winners". Also see 1/1a above.

086 11/9a: "- - - a taste of (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

087 11/17j: "- - - (the teaching of Muhammad is*) a guide and a mercy - - -". Wrong. A teaching based on a book full of mistakes (or the other way around?) is neither a guide nor a mercy.

088 11/41c: "- - - (Allah*) is, be sure, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." See 1/1a above.

089 11/43g: "- - - He (Allah*) hath mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

090 11/47c: "- - - (Allah*) have Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

091 11/63b: "- - - He (Allah*) hath sent Mercy - - -". As for mercy, see 1/1a above.

092 11/90c: "- - - (Allah*) is indeed full of mercy and loving-kindness". See 1/1a above.

093 11/119a: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

094 12/53b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

095 12/53c: "- - -(Allah*) is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

096 12/56a: "We (Allah*) bestow Our Mercy on whom We please - - -". There was one under-laying question where there was no rational answer: Why do many bad persons and many non-Muslims have a good life, whereas many Muslims had a difficult one, no matter how pious they were and no matter how powerful and benevolent the "right" god was?

There may be rational answers to this, but no simple rational answers - and a number of them would be disliked, like 'They work more than you', 'They are cleverer than you', 'They are more intelligent than you' etc. An intelligent and populist leader should be careful with such answers.

Muhammad came up with the ideal answer. It is irrational, but looks rational, at least for the naive ones, and it fits all situations: 'It is Allah who in his great and unfathomable wisdom who for some reason has decided it so - "on whom We please". Besides it only looks like a good life, because - cool down and sooth yourself and be glad - in the next lift they will be punished hard, whereas you will be rewarded if you keep on being good and obedient'.

Who can ask questions about an omniscient and benevolent god's fairness and wisdom? And who - at least among the ones who are small inside - does not like to "know" that "they" will be punished? - sometimes it helps nearly as much to "know" that, as to "know" that you yourself will be rewarded.

097 12/64c: "- - - he (Allah*) is the Most Merciful - - -". Skipping the fact that the Bible tells Jacob's god was Yahweh, not Allah - the two gods and their teachings fundamentally are too different, so they cannot be the same god no matter what the Quran and Islam (like normal without the slightest documentation) claim - see 1/1a above. Was and is Allah merciful?

098 12/87d: "- - - hope of Allah's soothing Mercy - - -". Please read the some 22-24 surahs from Medina and see if you long for this kind of mercy.

099 12/87e: "- - - despair of Allah's soothing Mercy - - -". See 12/87b just above.

100 14/36b: "(Allah is*) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See the comment to f.x. 1/1a and 14/8b above.

101 16/7a: "- - - your (Muslims'*) Lord is indeed Most Kind, Most Merciful". Please read the harsh war surahs from Medina, and afterwards think over if you agree (if you do, consult a "shrink"). There is no doubt, though that most Muslims honestly think also those surahs represent good moral - a consequence of being raised in a culture where you are imprinted such ideals and in a culture where you are raised to accept the religion - right or wrong, moral or immoral - not to evaluate it.

102 16/47a: "For thy (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) is indeed full of kindness and mercy". Please read the surahs from Medina (you find the numbers listed in "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran") and some of his (?) sharia laws, and see if you agree. Also see 1/1a above.

103 16/110f: "- - - (Allah*) is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." See 1/1a above.

104 16/119c: "- - - thy (Muslims') Lord (Allah*) - - - is - - - Most Merciful". Take a look at the surahs from Medina + some of the harsher and the unjust of the sharia laws and see if you agree.

105 17/8c: "- - - (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

106 17/24b: "- - - thy (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

107 17/25e: "- - - He (Allah*) is Most Forgiving - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the most forgiving one. Besides: How can Allah forgive without changing his Plan?

108 17/28: "- - - the Mercy of thy (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above.

109 17/54b: “- - - If He (Allah*) please, He granteth you mercy, or if He please, punishment - - -”. No matter what outcome this sentence is sure to be right. Really a good sentence for f.x. Muhammad - always right no matter what happens. But it proves nothing.

110 17/57c: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

111 17/66b: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". As said other places: Read the surahs from Medina + the most unjust of his sharia laws and see if you agree.

112 17/100b: "- - - the Treasure of the Mercy of my (Muhammad's*) Lord (Allah*)". See 2/2b above.

113 18/16a: "- - - your ("the 7 sleepers") Lord (here claimed to be Allah*) will shower his mercies on you and dispose of your affairs - - -". Would he be able to do so if the story about the 7 sleepers were not in reality a fairy tale? (In the Quran pretended to be a true one.)

114 18/16b: "- - - his (Allah's*) mercies - - -". See 1/1a above.

115 18/58c: "(Allah is*) Full of Mercy." For us this is even more difficult to agree to, than to 18/58b - see that comment plus 1/1a above.

116 19/2a: "(This is) a recital of the Mercy of thy (peoples') Lord (Allah*) - - -". As for mercy see 1/1a above.

117 19/45c: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious". See 1/1a and 19/44b above.

118 19/61c: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". Read the Quran, but skip the nice, glorifying words. Read instead what Allah demands and does and his rules and his moral and ethical codes, to get a true picture of him. Is he "Most Gracious"?

119 20/5b: "(Allah) Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority)". Frequently claimed like this or in other ways, but never one single valid proof for it - only Muhammad's never documented words. And even Islam describes Muhammad as a doubtful character if you look away from all the glorious propaganda words, and judge from what he in reality demanded and did - words are cheap, deeds are reliable.

120 20/108e: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

121 20/128b: "- - - how many generations before them We (Allah*) destroyed - - -". A Most Merciful, Most Forgiving, benevolent and good god?".

122 21/83b: "(Allah is) the Most Merciful of those who are merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the most immoral of the sharia laws, the verses telling that Allah makes humans and jinns for Hell, and others telling he blocks the road to Heaven for many - afterwards you can tell us if you think Allah is especially merciful (he is not even fair always). When a man - or a god - says something, but does something else, we always believe his deeds, not his words. Also see 1/1a above.

123 21/83c: "(Allah is) the Most Merciful of those who are merciful". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Job's god was Yahweh, not Allah. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just lose claims and as lose and invalid words, like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

124 21/86a: "- - - Our (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

125 22/65d: "- - - Allah is Most Kind and Most Merciful to man". See 1/1a above.

126 23/109b: "- - - Thou (Allah*) art the Best of those who show mercy!" Please read the surahs from Medina - as they are the youngest ones, they are the ones which counts when verses conflict, according to Islam's own rules for abrogation - and the harshest paragraphs in the sharia laws, and see if you agree. Allah in reality is a harsh god, and we any day believe more in what a man or a god demands and does, than in what he or his followers claim - words are cheap.

127 23/109c: "- - - Thou (Allah*) art the Best of those who show mercy!" According to the Bible he has a heavy competitor in Yahweh.

128 23/118a: "For Thou (Allah*) art the Best of those who show Mercy!". Read the surahs from Medina and the harshest of the Sharia laws and see if you are able to agree. Also see 1/1a above.

129 23/118b: "For Thou (Allah*) art the Best of those who show Mercy!". Islam is a war religion (in spite of loud claims of being "the religion of peace") - read the surahs from Medina before you protest. NT represents the religion of love. Does this say something in this slightly ridiculous (see 1/1a and judge yourself) claim in this verse?

130 24/5b: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Do you think so when reading 24/4b+d? If so, read also the surahs from Medina and the most unjust laws in the sharia and see if you still agree. Also see 1/1a above.

131 24/20b: "- - - Allah is full of kindness and mercy - - -". See f.x. 1/1a above.

132 24/22b: "For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See 1/1a above.

133 24/62g: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a above.

134 25/26f: "- - - (Allah) Most Merciful - - -". See f.x. 1/1a and 25/6e above.

135 25/48b: "- - - his (Allah's - one of the places where they have forgotten capital 1. letter*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

136 25/59d: "Allah, Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

137 25/60a: "Allah, Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

138 25/63a: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

139 25/70d: "- - - Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina + the most unjust ones of the sharia laws and see if you agree. Honestly, when there is a difference between what someone says and what he/she demands or does, we always believe the demands and the deeds - words are too cheap in comparison. At least he is not the most merciful - compare f.x. to the god of Jesus.

##We may add that the Quran many places talks about natural phenomena, and says Allah makes it or causes it. This needs solid proofs just like claims about mercy etc., as it is things that happens by itself from physical laws - and especially since words and statements are very cheap, and even more so AS ANY PRIEST IN ANY RELIGION CAN SAY JUST THE SAME ABOUT HIS GOD(S) FREE OF CHARGE - words are that cheap when you do not have to prove anything. Strong claims demand strong proofs, scientists say, and Muhammad did not prove one single of these strong statements and claims. Not one single.

140 26/9c: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a or 25/70d above.

141 26/68c: "- - - (Allah is*) Most Merciful - - -". See 1/1a above.

142 26/104c: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". Not if he made the surahs from Medina, some of the immoral Islamic moral code, or the most unjust of the sharia laws.

143 26/140c: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a or 26/104c above.

144 26/159c: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a or 26/104c above.

145 26/191c: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a or 26/104c above.

146 27/11g: "- - - I (Allah*) am Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, and the most immoral laws from sharia and see if you agree afterwards.

147 27/63e: "- - - his mercy - - -". In this case this in reality means rain - a mercy to people in desert areas - a good Arabism. But it definitely is not a mercy everywhere (not unless you use extreme "explanations"). A universal god would not use such a strong word except for something which was a mercy to every community.

148 27/73b: "- - - thy Lord (Allah*) is full of grace to mankind - - -". Please read the surahs from Medina + the harshest of the sharia laws and see if you agree. We at least, when there is disagreement between words on one side and demands and deeds on the other, always believe the demands and deeds - they are much more reliable than cheap words and claims.

149 28/5a: "And We (Allah*) wished to be gracious to those who were being depressed in the land - - -". There were others who were depressed/slaves in Egypt than the Jews. The Quran here says Allah wanted to help all - contradicting the Bible, where Yahweh this early only took care of the Jews (though it seems many non-Jews left Egypt together with the Jews). We only hear about help to the Jews - neither the Bible nor the Quran mentions freeing of other slaves (though it is said that others came along on the Exodus).

150 28/5b: "And We (Allah*) wished to be gracious to those who were being depressed in the land, to make them leaders (in Faith) and make them heirs". This directly contradicts the Bible - and actually also other parts of the Quran: It here says that Allah wanted to make them - in reality the Jews - the religious leaders and the heirs (of Egypt?). But in the Bible and most places in the Quran it is very clear that the subject only was to get the Jews out of Egypt and out of the slavery.

151 28/16b: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful". See f.x. 27/30b above.

152 28/73a: "It is out of His (Allah's*) Mercy that He has made for you Night and Day - - -". Claims as empty of value as 28/71a+b+c+d until it is proved it really is Allah who does it.

153 28/82e: "Had it not been that Allah was gracious to us (humans*) - - -". A claim in the same class as "If Allah wanted too - - -". See 14/19d above.

154 29/21b: "- - - He (Allah*) grants Mercy to whom He pleases - - -". Contrasting the NT where Yahweh grants mercy to anyone who deserves it + the ones who does not really deserve it, but who honestly regrets and asks for forgiving.

155 29/21c: "- - - (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

156 29/23f: "- - - My (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

157 29/67f: "- - - the Grace of Allah - - -",. See 1/1a above.

158 30/5d: "- - - He (Allah*) is Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the black parts of the Islamic moral code and the most unjust laws in sharia and see if you agree.

159 33/9c: "Remember the Grace of Allah, (bestowed) on you (Muslims*) - - -". There never in the entire history and before was a documented case of Allah bestowing anything on anyone - Muslims or not. A lot of claims, but not one documented case. And for comparison: Muslims tell there were several hundred thousand Hadiths - the collectors found that only a very small percent of them may be - may be - true.

160 33/43d: "- - - He (Allah*) is full of Mercy to the Believers". There never was a god of a war religion who really was full of mercy even towards his believers. And is Islam a mercy in all its inhumanities? Also see 1/1a above.

161 33/73c: "- - - Allah turns in Mercy to the Believers - - -". There never was a proved case of this - lots of claims, but never a proved case - of mercy from Allah.

162 34/2b: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Most Merciful, the Oft-Forgiving". Please read:

  1. The surahs from Medina - they are youngest and abrogate much from the Mecca surahs.
  2. The immoral parts of the Muslim code of moral.
  3. The immoral and/or unjust parts of the sharia laws.
  4.  

    If you still agree to the claim above, please contact a psychologist - you need it.

    163 36/5e: "(Allah is*) Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust parts of the sharia laws, and see if you afterwards agree.

    164 36/15a: "- - - (Allah*) Most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above, and see if you agree.

    165 36/45c: "- - - receive Mercy (from Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above.

    166 38/9a: "- - - the mercy of thy (peoples'*) Lord - - -". Even if somebody claims something, it is not necessarily true - see 1/1a above.

    167 39/9c: "- - - the Mercy of (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above.

    168 40/13c: "- - - only those receive admonition who turns (to Allah)". This only can be true if Allah exists, is a major god, and if at the same time no other god exists - f.x. Yahweh whom both the Bible and the Quran claims exists (even though the Quran mistakenly mixes him up with Allah - their teachings are fundamentally too different for them to be the same god).

    169 40/61c: "Verily Allah is full of grace - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you agree - - - if he exists.

    170 41/2c: "- - - (Allah), Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we at least always believe in the demands and deeds - words are too cheap to use and disuse. If you want to find the real Muhammad and the real Allah - if he exists - you will have to overlook the cheap, glorious words and claims, and look for what they demanded and did and what rules and moral and ethical codes they introduced. Deeds, moral codes, etc. tell a reliable truth, glorious words and claims are just that: Cheap words. Even the most brutal and rotten dictator uses them to glorify himself.

    171 41/32d: "- - - One (Allah*) Who - - - Most Merciful". Please read the Surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Quran's moral and ethical codes, and the unjust and/or immoral parts of the sharia laws and see if you agree. When there is divergence between the nice words and the rest, at least we believe much more in reality, actual demands, and in deeds, than in nice words.

    172 42/5h: "- - - Allah is He, the oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Islamic moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of the sharia laws, and see if you agree. When grim realities is covered by nice words, the realities always are more reliable than cheap words and claims.

    173 42/8c: “- - - He (Allah*) admits whom He will to His Mercy - - -.” One of the big differences between Yahweh and Allah: Yahweh admits - and strongly wants ("the lost sheep" - Matt. 18/12-14 - and others)- anyone who wants and qualify for Paradise, even if he/she does not qualify until in "the 11. hour" (Matt. 20/8-13). Not the same gods, not the same religion.

    174 42/19a: "Gracious is Allah - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you agree.

    175 43/17b: "- - - (Allah) most Gracious - - -". See 1/1a above.

    176 43/32d: "- - - the Mercy of thy (Muslims') Lord (Allah*) - - -". Read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code, the unjust and/or immoral parts of the sharia laws, plus the Quran's rules for murders, suppression, rape, enslavement, war, etc., and sum up Allah's real level of mercy. Nice words are cheap, reality is reliable.

    177 43/32e: "- - - the Mercy of thy (Muslims') Lord (Allah*) is better than the (wealth) which they amass". This only can - can - be true if Allah exists and is a god (if he f.x. exists and belongs to the dark forces, the picture will be totally different - and not much less so if the Quran is man-made (the most likely explanation), and especially so if there somewhere exists a real god, not to mention if that god is a good and benevolent one not liking followers of harsh war and discrimination religions. Like the one in the NT.)

    178 44/5-6: "For We (Allah*) (ever) send (revelations), as a Mercy from thy (Muhammad's? Muslims'? People's?) Lord (Allah*) - - -". But a number of the claimed revelations are wrong and cannot be from an omniscient god. Also the contents of some of them looks like sent from dark forces and not from a good and benevolent god, a fact which gives food to the suspicion that Muhammad did not meet Gabriel, but someone from the dark forces dressed up like Gabriel (if the story is true) - a mere human would not have a chance to see the difference.

    179 44/6b: "(The Quran is sent down*) as a Mercy from thy (Muhammad’s/Muslims’*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". Wrong. If Allah was behind the Quran, he neither has much brain for a god, nor much knowledge. And also little real mercy or real goodness or benevolence.

    180 44/42d: "- - - He (Allah*) is Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we at least always believe in the demands and deeds - words are too cheap to use and disuse.

    181 44/42e: "- - - He (Allah*) is Most Merciful". Contradicted also by the Bible. Yahweh - especially as you meet him in NT and the new covenant via Jesus - seems to be a lot more merciful than the deeds of Allah and Muhammad prove. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

    182 45/30b: “- - - those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord (Allah*) will admit them to His Mercy - - -.” Plain and simple. (And of course the best deed was and is to go to war.) But it is totally dependent on that Allah exists, is a god, and is correctly described in the Quran.

    183 48/14g: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code, and the immoral and/or unjust parts of sharia. And also f.x. the rules for behavior in war. Read them and see if you agree. When there are divergences or worse between reality and nice words, we at least always believe in the realities.

    184 48/25g: "- - - He (Allah*) may admit His Mercy to whom He will". Yahweh admits anyone who wants and qualifies to his mercy, if the Bible tells the truth. The same god?

    185 48/29g: "- - - seeking the Grace from Allah - - -". This will be in vain unless he exists and is a god - if he belongs to the dark forces, one had better refrain from this.

    186 49/5b: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a and 48/14g above.

    187 49/8a: "A Grace and a Favor from Allah - - -". Not possible unless Allah exists and is a god.

    b

    188 49/10b: "- - - fear Allah, that ye (Muslims*) may receive Mercy". See 1/1a above.

    189 57/9i: "- - - Allah is to you Most Kind and Merciful". When nice words conflict with reality, we always believe in reality - and hiding reality behind nice words is one of the trade marks for cheats, deceivers, and swindlers. See f.x 1/1a above.

    190 57/21g: "- - - Allah is the Lord of Grace abounding". One of the nearly innumerable never proved claims in the Quran. Claims are cheap - proofs are reliable.

    191 57/28e: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See above this surah (under the name) and 1/1a above.

    192 57/28f: "- - - He (Allah*) will bestow on you (Muslims*) a double portion of his Mercy". One of the many things impossible if he does not exist and is a god. (If he had been a politician before an election, the newspapers had said "populism". There is a lot of promises of related kind in the Quran - just go looking, and you will find it.)

    193 57/29c: "- - - (Allah*) bestows it (his grace*) on whomsoever He wills - - -". Some difference from Yahweh who bestows it on whomsoever wishes it and qualifies. One of the many indications for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

    194 57/29d: "For Allah is the Lord of Grace abounding". One more of the never proved claims in the Quran. As for claims it might have been possible to accept that some of them simply were tales telling how things were/are, but only if at least some of them were proved true, so that the reliability was confirmed here and there. But when nothing is proved or documented - nothing at all of the central claims - things feel wrong, and this even more so as to rely on tales and fast talk and evade or being unable to prove anything, are hallmarks of cheats, deceivers and swindlers. Not to mention like in the Quran, where most of the tales are recognizable apocryphal, legends, fairy tales, and at least a few lies (f.x. telling that the reason why Allah proves nothing, was that miracles would make nobody believe anyhow - proved wrong both in the Quran (f.x. the Pharaoh's sorcerers) and by psychological science.

    195 58/12f: "- - - Allah is - - - Most Merciful". See f.x. 1/1a above and judge if he is merciful. When there is divergence between nice words - even many times repeated nice words - and reality, we always believe in the reality.

    196 66/1f: "But Allah is - - - Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we always believe in the demands and deeds - words are too cheap to use and disuse.

    197 67/28b: "- - - His (Allah's*) Mercy - - -". See 1/1a above.

    198 77/000: "In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and the Quran's rules for lying, thieving/looting, enslaving, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free and captured - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, we personally believe in the demands and deeds. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds are reliable. Glorifying words and claims are too cheap for anyone to use and disuse - when you read, judge from realities like deeds and demands, not from propaganda.

     

    If Allah exists and lives also according to the surahs from Medina, he definitely is neither the most gracious nor the most merciful - f.x. Jesus by far was more merciful, etc. than both Allah and Muhammad put together, if the old books tell the truth.

    199 82/6b: "- - - (Allah*) Most beneficent - - -". See 1/1a above.

    200 85/14b: "And He (Allah*) is - - - Full of Loving-Kindness". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Muslim moral code, and the unjust/immoral parts of sharia, and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands, deeds and introduced rules, we always believe in the demands and deeds and rules - words are too cheap to use and disuse.

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

    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, and to most Jews and historians, 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 corrupt the quranic texts.
