Allah in the Quran, Chapter 51

 

Chapter 51

WORSHIP ALLAH

 

This chapter is in principle very similar to the chapter "Blasphemy of Allah" - see the comments there.

001 We only add that it is quite risky to worship a god who never has been able to prove his very existence, and whose only - only - connection to reality, is the words of a man of very doubtful morality (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, deceit and betrayal ok, and even disuse of words/promises/oaths - 2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the star case 3/54 (if Allah can cheat, cheating is ok - but how much cheating is it then in the Quran? - by Allah or by Muhammad), and with much respect, power, riches for "buying" more power, and women, to gain from making people believe in his new religion. One thing is if Allah is fiction, or just a dressed up old pagan Arab moon or main god. Something much more serious is if he is a dressed up something from the dark forces - Muhammad had not had one chance in a million to see the difference, and too many points in the religion and in its moral code fit a devil better than they fit a claimed good and benevolent god.

002 This even more so as all the errors, contradictions, etc. (unbelievable 3ooo+) in the Quran, included perhaps 2ooo points of wrong facts, prove 100% and more that the Quran is not from any god. Plus f.x. that the written material proves that the Bible is not falsified, in spite of Muhammad's and the Quran's never proved claims - the combination of that Jesus accepted OT as genuine + the Qumran scrolls' proving that OT was never falsified later, too, prove that also OT was never falsified. Etc.

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

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?

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?

*003 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 - 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 (see 51/47c) 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 that 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 not least: Even if man had just 0.0001% free will, his changing his mind once in a long while, would destroy Allah's full clairvoyance - the laws of chaos would see to that. Also this "explanation" thus is invalid.

Actually Islam admits they are unable to explain this – probably 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. 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? (Muslim rumor says "some 100 verses".)
  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.

004 2/83b: "- - - worship none but Allah - - -". A strong contradiction to the Bible, which says "none but Yahweh". This contradiction clearly arises from the fact that Muhammad claimed Yahweh just was another name for Allah (wrong - the main thoughts and ideas are too different in the Quran compared to the Bible, and especially compared to NT and its New Covenance (f.x. Luke 22/20)).

005 2/116d: “(And on earth:) - - - everything renders worship to Him (Allah*).” From other places in the Quran one knows that “everything” is meant literally – every living being and all inanimate things. As one never observes any other living beings, not to mention inanimate things, than Muslims worship Allah, and the nature thus shows that the claim is not true, this is one of the claims that must be deemed untrue unless Islam proves it. Proves, not only states or claims. (To quote remark A120 in Abdullah Yusuf Ali: “The Meaning of the Quran”: “- - - everything in heaven and earth celebrates the glory of Allah”. But like normal for Muslims it only is a claim – no documentation, no proof, and no real explanation.)

##006 3/51a: (Jesus said*): “It is Allah who is my Lord and your Lord; then worship Him”. Contradicted by the Bible, to say the least of it - in the Bible Jesus' connection was to Yahweh (but then the Quran wrongly mixes up Yahweh and Allah, even though the fundamentals of their teachings are too different for such a claim to be true). 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.

Remember here that now we are in times of written history and exact knowledge. There was no god like Allah, no religion like Islam, and no book like the Quran anywhere in the Roman Empire neither at the time of Jesus, nor any time later until after 610 AD, when Muhammad started his mission.

###007 3/126a: "Allah made it (the Quran/Islam*) but a message of hope - - -". Allah has not made it unless he exists. And even if he exists, he has not sent it if he is a god - it is an insult, slander and heresy to accuse a god of being involved in a book with so many mistakes and other errors like the Quran.

008 3/200c: "- - - fear Allah; that ye (Muslims*) may prosper". There is no use in fearing Allah, unless he exists and in addition is a god, neither of which is anywhere proved - and this even more so as the Quran itself proves it is not from a god (no omniscient god makes mistakes, contradictions, need abrogations, etc. by the hundreds and more.)

009 4/1a: “Reverence your Guardian-Lord (Allah*) - - -". He is no guardian if he does not exist, or if he is not a major god - Islam will have to prove so. And even if he exists, he is no guardian like the Quran claims, unless he is behind the stories in the Quran and the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth about this. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.) But no omniscient god is behind a book that full of mistakes, etc. like the Quran.

010 4/36a: "Serve Allah, and join not partners with Him - - -". In reality an Arabism, because only the Arabs could after a fashion be accused of joining other gods with al-Lah/Allah. All others simply did not believe in al-Lah/Allah and had one or more god not in addition to him, but instead of him (and the old Arabs really believed in the pagan al-Lah, not in Muhammad's version of him.

##011 5/72g: “But said Christ; ‘O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord‘”. If Jesus had tried to teach about the in Israel known polytheistic god al-Lah from a heathen neighboring country, he had got very few followers and had been quickly killed by the clergy in the religious climate in Israel at that time. This is told by someone not knowing the religious and political situation in Israel at the time of Jesus.

Remember here that now we are in times of written history and exact knowledge. There was no god like Allah, no religion like Islam, and no book like the Quran anywhere in the Roman Empire neither at the time of Jesus, nor any time later until after 610 AD, when Muhammad started his mission.

012 9/93c: "- - - Allah hath sealed their (the ones not believing strongly enough to want war*) hearts - - -". See 9/46b+c.

013 30/31a: "Turn ye (people/Muslims*) back in repentance to Him (Allah*), and fear him - - -". Well, perhaps there is a reason for fearing him, as he is a harsh god - - - but only if he exists and really is a god. (That is to say: If he belongs to the dark forces, there really may be a reason for fearing him.)

014 33/70b: "Fear Allah - - -". Why? - it is highly unlikely he exists, and if he exists, we know nothing about him - the texts in the Quran are too unreliable.

015 36/61a: "- - - ye (people*) should worship Me (Allah*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says you should worship Yahweh (Allah or his companions are not even hinted to in the Bible, in spite of the Quran's and Muslims' strong claims - not unless Allah is part of the dark forces. 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.

016 37/95b: "Worship ye (Abram/Abraham's people*) that which ye have (yourselves) carved?" But what is the difference between worshipping a carved god and a god dreamt up in a book - a mental idol? - and in a book which itself proves it is not from any god.

017 39/2f: "- - - so serve Allah, offering Him sincere devotion". The chances for that he exists are too small - the rumor about him is only based on a book choke full of mistaken facts and other errors, told by a man who even according to central Islamic literature was of very dubious moral quality (read the facts, not the glorious words of propaganda), believing in the use of dishonesty and liking power, riches for bribes for more power - and women (also this according to central Islamic sources).

018 39/10b: "Fear your Lord (Allah*) - - -". Why, if he does not exist? - or if he is not something supernatural, white or black?

##019 39/54a: "Turn to our Lord (Allah*) - - -". It is not possible to turn to a god unless he exists - one may try, but if he just is a made up one, you either cheat yourself, or - cheating yourself - is a result of that you are cheated by others. And: As the Quran and all its errors are not from a god, whose will did the old Arabs really have to bow to?

020 39/54b: "- - - bow to His (Allah's*) (Will) - - -". Similar comment as 39/54a just above.

021 39/66a: "- - - worship Allah - - -". What for as it is extremely unlikely he exists?

022 40/12a: "- - - Allah was invoked as the Only (object of worship) - - -". See 2/255a, 6/106b, and 25/18a above.

023 40/12b: "- - - Allah was invoked as the Only (object of worship), ye (non-Muslims*) did reject Faith (Islam*) - - -". Many had a very good reason for that: They saw that things were seriously wrong in the new religion. And an essential point here is that they not only did not believe in Muhammad, but were so sure that things were wrong, that they refused to bow to him even at horrible costs, included for many their lives.

024 40/14a: "Call ye (Muslims*), then, upon Allah with sincere devotion to Him - - -". First one perhaps should find out if there are chances for that he exists? - and if he in case is a god?

025 40/65d: "- - - giving Him sincere devotion". What for if he does not exist? There never was an unmistakable sign for his existence - only Muhammad's pretty unreliable words.

026 41/14b: "Serve none but Allah". It is unclear when this is claimed to have happened, but some time after Noah (likely 3ooo - 4ooo or more BC), but well before Moses some 1300 - 1400 BC. Neither science, nor Islam has found any traces of anyone worshipping Allah or practicing Islam until after 610 AD, when Muhammad started his mission.

027 49/1g: "- - - fear Allah - - -". Why, as long as it is proved by f.x. all the errors, etc. in the Quran that the Quran is not from any god? - and why, as thus it is unlikely in the extreme that Allah exists? Allah after all only was a pagan god, al-Lah, Muhammad dressed up, and a god who has not one single time in all human knowledge provably manifested neither himself nor any of his heavenly underlings.

028 49/10b: "- - - fear Allah, that ye (Muslims*) may receive Mercy". See 1/1a above.

029 50/33b: "- - - a heart turned in devotion (to Him (Allah*))". To no avail if Allah does not exist and is no god (not to mention if he exists in the dark forces).

#030 53/62: "- - - adore (Him (Allah*))!" Why adore the "hero" in a clearly made up - by dark forces or human(s) - book? A claimed "hero" who has never before or later manifested himself in any way at all! Cervantes was out from prison when he wrote Don Quixote - in a book of a measurably better literary quality than the Quran. But Don Quixote does not exist even though a doubtful person wrote a book about him.

Even if things are said or written, that does not mean that it is true - and especially not when the narrator is an unreliable person of doubtful moral, even according to the realities in central Islamic relevant literature.

031 57/28b: "Fear Allah, and believe in His (Allah's*) Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra for gluing himself to his source of power, his claimed god.

032 59/7f: "And fear Allah; for Allah is strict in punishment." In this case the meaning seems to be: Be satisfied with what Muhammad gives you, or Allah may punish you.

033 59/18b: "Fear Allah - - -". There is no reason for that, unless he exists and unless he in addition is a god. (Well, there may be reason to fear him also if he belongs to the dark forces.)

034 60/4f: "- - - whatever ye (non-Muslims*) worship besides Allah - - -". If you are able to believe there was any worshipping of Allah some 2500 years before Muhammad started his preaching, you are free to do so. But neither science, nor Islam has been able to find even the smallest trace of such worshipping older than 610 AD, when Muhammad started. We may add for what it is worth, that it also is contradicted by the Bible, which tells Yahweh was Abraham's god, not Allah. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just lose claims and as lose and invalid words, like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

035 60/11b: "- - - fear Allah - - -". This only can have a purpose if he exists and is something supernatural.

##036 64/16a: "- - - fear Allah - - -". Why? - unless he exists and is something supernatural? Nothing of which has ever been proved. Not one single time has Allah manifested himself or done anything which clearly is his work. There only is the tales from a man with provable (in f.x. the Quran) dubious moral, a man who provably (f.x. in the Quran) believed in the use of dishonesty and even broken oaths, a man who liked (easy to see f.x. in the Quran) power, riches for more power, and women, and a man who used (easy to see f.x. in the Quran) his god and religion as his platform of power - like many a self proclaimed "prophet" have done throughout the times, and do even today.

037 65/1d: "- - - fear Allah your (Muslims'/humans'*) Lord - - -". No reason for that, unless he exists and is something supernatural, black or white.

038 70/34b: "- - - (the sacredness) of their (Muslims'*) worship (of Allah*) - - -". This only is correct if Allah exists and is a god.

039 73/8: "- - - devote thyself (Muslim*) to Him (Allah*) wholeheartedly". Not a too good idea if Allah does not exist - or if he exists, but belongs to the dark forces. That is to say: It might be a good idea for the god's claimed representative on Earth, as on Earth this in praxis for a large part meant: "Devote yourself to the god's claimed representative on Earth".

040 94/8b: "And to thy (Muslims'?*) Lord (Allah*) turn (all) thy attention". Why, when you know that each and every rumor and claim about even his existence, are based only on a book choke full of mistakes, contradictions, etc.? This plus some additional words from a man even the religion's own books divulge is the user of lies and deceit and even broken words/promises/oaths - and a man liking power, riches for more power - and women. Plus you know that the claimed god is the pagan old Arab god al-Lah/Allah, dressed up and renamed a little to only Allah, and tried intertwined with the more accepted old Jewish and Christian god, Yahweh - a god who after all may, but stress the word may, exist. And a former pagan Arab god who has never - never - manifested himself in any provable way. Neither himself, nor his power. There only - only - are the lose and never proved words and claims of this man - a man modern medical science on top of all suspects had a brain illness (TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy), an illness whish in case explains both his physical fits and his religious illusions.

041 96/19b: "- - - bow down in adoration (to Allah*) - - -" The only case where there is a reason for that, is if he exists and is a god.
