Allah in the Quran, Chapter 52

 

Chapter 52

PRAISE ALLAH

 

001 There are some problems here. As the Quran is from no god - too many errors, etc. even for a baby god - then whom do we really praise if we try to praise Allah?

002 The god Allah mentioned and described in the Quran? - but as no book of a quality like the Quran is from any god, then likely Allah is one of the many made up gods in this sorry world. This even more so as the only place in the world history there is mentioned a god like Allah, is just in the clearly faked Quran (faked in the meaning that it pretends to be from a god, but very obviously is not - f.x. no god makes that many errors, etc. in such an after all small book). And to what avail praise a made up - pagan - god in case?

003 The old pagan god al-Lah/Allah, just renamed to only Allah and pretended being a monotheistic god? - but there never - never - was a proof neither for that Allah/al-Lah really existed, nor for that he was a monotheistic god. This only is based on Muhammad's claims, and with Muhammad's view on dishonesty as a working tool - al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, deceit, even broken 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), his words are not worth much. Besides: How much is a made up, pagan god worth?

004 A real god, but so different from the god of dishonesty and war who is described in the Quran, that it is not possible to recognize him - a negative caricature of Yahweh, f.x.?

005 Something from a mentally sick human brain? - like from a brain infected with TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy)? Modern medical science suspects this. Not much of a god to praise in case.

006 Or is Allah as a monotheistic god something from a cold, scheming human brain - f.x. Muhammad's? - modern science of history suspects this, perhaps mixed up with TLE. Some god to praise in case!!

007 Not to mention: Who are you praising if Allah is from the dark forces? - something many points in the Quran and in its moral code may indicate.

008 One should find out things like these before one starts praising f.x. the Devil - dressed up like a god - or a made up pagan god (f.x. the old Arab al-Lah/Allah - earlier al-Ilah (the moon god of at least south Arabia - it is no co-incidence that the crescent moon is the symbol for Allah and for Islam) - and even earlier Il). There after all only are Muhammad's not very reliable words for that that old Arab pagan and polytheistic god was something special - - - and remember how much honor, power and women Muhammad gained from those never proved claims. He had several and strong motifs for making up a god backing him. (Just like so many other self proclaimed prophets or "prophets" through history - even if none of them were as successful as Muhammad.)

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

Also: What is sure, is that no god ever made a holy book as full of wrong facts, other errors, contradictions, unclear language, etc. like the Quran. ##### Besides: Which one of the 20-30 known versions accepted by Islam of the Quran (see 15/9c) - if any (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?

009 2/198e: "- - - celebrate His (Allah's*) praises as He has directed you - - -." There are very fixes rites during the pilgrimage in Mecca - and rather honest: They are primitive and superficial, with superficial symbolism - simply taken over from the old pagan rites. An omniscient, omnipotent god should have been able to find rites which gave more.

010 2/198f: "- - - celebrate His (Allah's*) praises as He has directed you - - -." As it is not Allah who has sent down the Quran - no god ever was involved in a book of that quality - Allah is not the one who directs via the Quran (the alternatives are: Dark forces, an illness like TLE - Temporal Lobe Epilepsy - or one or more humans, with Muhammad as the most likely suspect in case).

011 2/221j: "- - - celebrate His (Allah's*) praise". See 1/1a and see if you think he deserves any praise - if he exists.

012 2/239a: "- - - celebrate Allah's praises in the manner He has taught you (Muslims - via the Quran*) - - -". As the Quran with all its many mistakes is not from a god, this automatically means that it was not a god who taught you this.

013 2/267c: "- - - Allah - - - Worthy of all Praise". See 1/1a and see if you agree.

014 3/50d: (Jesus said:) "So fear Allah - - -". See 3/51 below.

015 3/191c: "Glory to Thee!" Ask first for proofs for that it really was Allah who created everything - and also read 1/1a - and see if he deserves any glory - - - if he exists.

016 4/131l: "- - - Allah is - - - worthy all praise". Read 1/1a and see if you agree.

017 4/139b: "- - - all honor is with Allah." May be correct - but only if Allah exists and is a god - and only if he in addition is reasonably correctly described in the Quran. And NB: Only if there is no other god.

018 4/171r: "- - - glory be to Him (Allah*) - - -". Please read 1/1a above and see if he deserves any glory - if he exists.

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

######019 5/35g: “- - - strive with might and main (see 5/35a-b*) in His (Allah’s*) cause - - -”. For us this is one of the most detestable points in the entire Quran and Islam: Fight and steal and rob and mutilate and rape and enslave and hate and murder and get rich and suppress in the name of your god, and as a service to your god - a claimed good and benevolent god!

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

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

020 6/1a: “Praise be to Allah - - -". Please see 1/1a above - is he worth it? (- if he exists).

021 6/1e: “Praise be to Allah, who created the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -.” And what does the Quran's universe look like? In short (included Earth, the universe (see 51/47c) and living beings): According to the Quran the “everything” = this:

High above everything - above the 7. heaven - resides Allah.

Under him are the seven heavens – one on top of the other.

The heavens are from something material - if not one could not fasten the stars to one of them.

The heavens are held up by invisible pillars - if not they of course would fall down.

The heavens contains Paradise - and better the higher a Heaven (= closer to Allah).

The Paradise for normal good Muslims seems according to Hadiths to be in 1. heaven. It consists of 4 or 6 or more (exact number not clear) Gardens, one more luxurious than the other

In between the heavens are the sun and the moon (the sun is not said, only indicated to be just here).

Also the sun moves across the sky. (It in reality is the Earth that spins around.)

The sun raises in the east from the Earth, and sets in a pool of dirty water on Earth in the west.

The places for sunrise and sunset was found by Dhu'l Quarnayn = Alexander the Great.

Under the sun and moon, and fastened to the lowest of the 7 heavens (37/6-7, 41/12), are all the stars. (The movements of the planets are not explained.)

Stars also are used as shooting stars to chase away bad spirits and jinns spying on Heaven.

Under the heavens and stars are clouds.

The clouds Allah sometimes breaks to pieces (raindrops).

Under the clouds the birds are kept aloof by only the will of Allah.

Then there is our flat Earth.

On the Earth mountains are set down - not grown up, but set down.

The Earth is kept steady by the mountains.

Without the steadying mountains Earth might start wobbling and tip around

(today Islam points to earth-quakes, but that was not the original meaning according to Muslim scholars of the old).

On "our" Earth are rivers. Hadiths tell that 2 of them - the Nile and the Euphrates - start in Paradise.

On Earth there further are highways - made by Allah.

On the Earth also all kinds of beings live – created from clay or something or nothing.

The first man was Adam - a single man - created in somewhere between 5 and 13 different ways*.

Under our Earth (Hadith) there are more flat Earths – 7 all together.

Islam has named for all the different Earths - and tells (in Hadiths) that the lower down, the more hellish life for the inhabitants.

And at the bottom (Hadith) is Hell.

Hell has seven gates, each leading to a separate part of Hell - one worse than the other.

* Modern Islamic literature seems to indicate that the official point of view of Islam is that man really was created by clay or similar.

Just like what your school and modern science tell you?

(This is one of the really strong and easy to see proofs for that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no omniscient god makes mistakes, and absolutely not of this quantity, magnitude, and stupidity.)

####022 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 stealing, rape, repeated atrocities, apartheid, and mass murder, and for the reason that 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, but we do not have strong enough words for this.

023 6/45c: “Praise be to Allah - - -". Please see 1/1a above - is he worthy of praise? (if he exists).

024 6/100f: "Praise and glory be to Him (Allah*)!" See 1/1a above and see if you think he is worth this - - - if he exists and is correctly described in the Quran.

025 9/31g: "- - - Praise and glory to Him (Allah*)". Please read 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it.

026 11/73c: "For He (Allah*) is indeed worthy of all praise - - -". See 1/1a above and see if the god you meet in the Quran is worthy of all praise.

027 12/108c: "Glory to Allah!" Please read 1/1a above and see if he deserves it - if he exists.

028 12/109c: "(Prophets*) whom We (Allah*) did inspire - - -". Muhammad claimed he got most of his messages from Allah via inspiration - a very convenient way, at least if you like to make up or add "messages". He, therefore, many places in the Quran claims that this was the normal method also for earlier prophets. But the method is not at all mentioned in the Bible.

029 13/15a: “Whatever beings there are in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and in the earth do prostrate themselves to Allah (acknowledging subjection)”. As for in the Heaven, it is difficult to say yes or no. But for the Earth: No non-Muslim ever prostrate themselves for Allah. The same goes for all animals, fishes and insects, etc.: None of them has ever been observed prostrating themselves for any god, Allah included – and for Allah it should be extra easy to observe, as he prefers 5 prayers with prostrations towards Mecca a day, some by day and some by night (even more easy to see if it is prostrations for Allah, as few animals, etc. are awake and active both day and night – waking up for prostrations towards Mecca during the time of normal sleep, should be easy to have confirmed). Islam has some heavy proofs to produce here to make this point in the Quran credible. Also see 2/116 – 6/38 – 16/49 – 17/44 – 21/20 – 22/18.

030 14/1j: "(Allah is*) Worthy all Praise!" Please read the some 22-24 surahs from Medina and see if you agree - there is much dishonesty, rape, suppression, apartheid, and blood. Also see 1/1a above.

031 14/8b: "- - - Allah (is*) - - - Worthy of all praise." Please read the harsh surahs from Medina - as they are the youngest, those mainly are the ones which count if there are "collisions", according to Islam's rules for abrogation (making points and verses invalid). Also see 1/1a above. Then you afterwards decide if you agree.

032 14/39a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". This is said by Abraham, but the Bible contradicts and says Abraham's god was Yahweh, not Allah.

033 16/1e: "- - - glory to Him (Allah*) - - -". Read 1/1a above and see if you agree - - - if he exists.

034 16/49a: “And to Allah doth obeisance all that is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth, whether moving (living) creatures or the angels - - -“. Wrong – if Islam does not prove the opposite. Animals, birds, insects, fish, worms, etc. – they never are observed making obeisance to Allah (or to any other god). No rituals, no 5 prayers a day/night (even more so: Few animals are naturally active both night and day – “prayers” should thus be easy to notice when they are active praying at for them un-normal times to be active), no servility except sometimes towards their own leaders, etc. And surely non-Muslim humans do not do obeisance to Allah – though sometimes to other real or made up god or gods. This verse contradicts nearly any branch of science and knowledge – except legends and fairy tales.

035 16/50a: “They all (all living beings*) revere their Lord (Allah*) - - -”. Wrong – if Islam does not produce good proofs. See 16/49a+b above.

036 16/57e: "Glory be to Him (Allah*)!" Please read 1/1a above and see if he deserved it - if he existed.

037 16/78c: "- - - ye (people*) may give thanks (to Allah)". What for? There is not documented he did anything at all - yes, not even that he exists or what he is if he exists, except that he is no god if he is behind the Quran.

038 17/1a: "Glory to (Allah*) - - -". Please red 1/1a above and see if he deserves it.

039 17/23b: “Thy Lord (Allah*) hath decreed that ye worship none but Him - - -". Contradicted by the Bible which tells you should worship none but Yahweh. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just lose claims and as lose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.

040 17/43a: "Glory to Him (Allah*)!". Please read 1/1a and see if you agree.

041 17/44e: “- - - there is not a thing but celebrates (= all things celebrates*) His (Allah’s*) praise - - -”. Animism/anthropomorphism. This Islam will have to prove - it is an unlikely statement built on no obvious fact(s). Or to be more blunt: This claim is wrong, unless Islam proves - proves - it right.

042 17/111a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". Please read 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves any praise.

043 17/111d: "- - - His (Allah's*) greatness and glory!" No comments - but see 1/1a above.

044 18/1a: "Praise be to Allah." See 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

045 18/1-2: “Praise be to Allah, Who hath sent to his servant (Muhammad*) the Book (the Quran*), and hath allowed therein no Crookedness: (He hath made it) strait (and Clear) - - -.” In plain words: ###The verses in the Quran are in straight and clear and not crooked or incorrect words – to be understood literally. ###Remember this each time a Muslim or Islam tries to explain away errors and weak points by claiming the text is not straight and clear, but parables, etc. (where not something else is said strait and clear). See the comment to 3/7 and 11/1 just above.

########Also note the Quran's technique: It pretends that never proved claims are facts, and debate from there. The book very often uses this and similar techniques.

046 19/44c: "- - - (Allah) Most Gracious". The underlying claim contradicted by the Bible, which says Abraham's god was Yahweh, not Allah. As there are found no sure traces in any kind of science or even in folklore of fairy tales anywhere in the world, for that anyone at any time had heard about the god Allah, it is highly unlikely also Abraham had ever heard about him. Perhaps - perhaps - the pagan god al-Lah, al-Ilah, or Il, but not the monotheistic 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.

047 19/65d: "- - - so worship Him (Allah*) - - -". The only claims for his existence are only based on the words of a man clearly described as having a very doubtful moral and plainly, too, he accepted and believed in the use of dishonesty - and a man wanting power and riches for more power - and women. Normally such men are shunned and their tales disbelieved, but if you mix religion into it, not a few of them have succeeded to an astonishing degree.

048 19/65e: "- - - be constant and patient in His worship - - -". As he till now never clearly has reacted to worship - lots of claims, but no proved case - patience may be necessary, yes.

*049 21/20: “They (all creatures in the heavens and the Earth*) celebrate His (Allah’s*) praises night and day - - -“. Islam will have to prove that all animals, birds, fishes, insects, worms, etc., etc. really does this – and all non-Muslim humans – before one can believe them and the Quran on this point.

050 21/22d: "But glory to Allah - - -". Please read 1/1a and added verses - is he worthy of glory?

051 21/87g: "- - - glory to Thee (here indicated Allah*) - - -". Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves glory.

052 22/18a: “Seest thou not that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth - - -?” No, we do not see that. This just is another of the mistakes and cheap words/claims in the Quran, unless Islam really proves that it is reality. Without proof this just is cheap propaganda - but it may work among naive or blind believers. Also animism/anthropomorphism.

053 22/18b: “- - - to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth – the sun, the moon, the stars, the hills, the trees and the animals - - -". A lot of animism + personification (anthropomorphism) even of inanimate things. Not bad. “The Message of the Quran” (remark A22/22) even stresses that it is “conscious subduction under the will of Allah”. Not bad at all – especially for inanimate matter to show conscious subduction.

054 22/24f: "- - - Him Who is Worthy of (all) Praise". Is he, if he has sent down a claimed holy book full of mistakes and contradictions? - not to mention if someone else has made the Quran? Wrong.

055 22/28a: "- - - celebrate the name of Allah - - -". A positive idea if Allah exists and is a god. A joke if he does not exist. A lousy idea if he exists and belongs to the dark forces.

056 22/37c: "- - - glorify Allah - - -". Check first if he exists, and read then 1/1a above to see if he deserves glorification - - - if the Quran is not a made up book and mainly fairy tales and legends.

057 22/77b: "- - - adore your Lord (Allah*) - - -". Wise if he exists and is a god. Meaningless if he does not exist. Ever so negative if he exists and belongs to the dark forces.

058 23/28a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". The Bible disagrees here, and wants it to be Yahweh. More essential: Neither science nor Islam has ever found any trace about Allah older than 610 AD. Noah - if he ever existed - may have lived 3ooo-5ooo BC. (You will find exact years some places - do not believe the rest of what those sources tell you, too. Exact years for Abraham, Isaac, Jacob or anything older in the religions, are bluffs).

059 23/52d: "- - - fear Me (Allah*) - - -". No reason for that unless he exists.

060 23/91d: "Glory to Allah". Read 1/1a and see if he deserves glorification.

061 24/36-37 What is the real value of this glorification if Allah just have predestined it, like the Quran many places claims he does for absolutely everything?

062 24/41a: “- - - it is Allah Whose praise all beings in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth do celebrate - - -“. This has not been documented or clearly shown anywhere or any time. Similar claim in 16/50a+b. Also see 24/40c just above. The only thing we see, is a lose claim any believer in any religion can use free of charge on behalf of his god(s) as long as he can evade the requests for proof. Wrong unless Islam proves it is right - but proves, not claims.

063 25/10a: "Blessed is He (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

064 25/10b: "Blessed is He (Allah*) Who - - - could give thee (people*) better (things) than those - - -". The word "those" here refers to "the wicked" in 25/8-9 above.

065 25/10c: "Blessed is He (Allah*) Who - - - could give thee (people*) better (things) than those - - -". Often claimed, but there never was a proved case where Allah gave anything to anybody.

066 27/40f: "(Allah is*) Supreme in Honor!" Contradicted by the Bible, which places Yahweh alone on the top. 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.

067 28/70d: "To Him (Allah*) be praise - - -". Please read 1/1a above and see if He deserves it.

068 29/17e: "- - - be grateful to Him (Allah*) - - -". Reasonable only if he exists and is a god, a joke if he does not exist, an irony if he exists and belongs to the dark forces.

069 29/63c: "Praise be to Allah!" See 1/1a above - does he deserve it?

070 30/17a: "So (give) glory to Allah - - -". But does he deserve it? (- if he exists?) See 1/1a above.

071 30/17b: "So (give) glory to Allah, when ye (Muslims*) reach eventide and when ye raise in the morning". We are back to the regular prayers of Islam. This demand for regular prayers - 5 times a day - was so essential for Allah (he even wanted more often according to Hadiths), that it became one of the 5 "pillars" of Islam. For Yahweh such formalism was so totally without any interest, that no similar rule - not even the idea - at all is mentioned in the entire Bible: Pray when there is a reason or a need or a wish. One of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. Also see 23/9b above.

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are taught that a question or problem which really can have only one valid solutions, can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. F.x. in cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. Islam teaches differently. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1): Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. Islam is teaching differently. 2): The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other. Islam is teaching differently.)

Another fact: Today it is easy by means of statistical methods to check if prayers have any effect. (Let f.x. 1ooo persons each pray for one among 1ooo unknown persons sick or in other ways in need. compare the result after some time with a similar group of 1ooo who has not been prayed for, and see if there is a difference. If there is a positive difference, this would be a strong indication or perhaps even a proof for something - a proof Islam strongly and dearly needs, as they have not any proof for even a single of its central claims. But it has not even tried to make such a test. Why?)

072 31/12d: "Show thy (Muslims'*) gratitude to Allah". Why? There is not proved he has done anything at all - a lot of lose claims and as lose words, but not one proof. Not even his very existence is proved.

073 31/12h: "- - - Allah is - - - worthy of all praise - - -". Read first "1000+ Mistakes in the Quran" ( www.1000mistakes.com ) and see 80%(?) of the mistakes in the book, then the surahs from Medina so that you meet the real Allah and the real Islam - the mistakes, and the war and suppression religion. Then read the black sides of Islam's moral code, and finally the most unjust parts of the sharia laws. Then see if you agree.

###074 31/14b: "Show gratitude to Me (Allah*) - - -". What for if the tales about him just are made up ones? - not one essential word in those tales is proved, and most of the tales are known to be from old legends, fairy tales etc.!

075 31/26e: "(Allah is*) worthy of all Praise". See first 1/1a above or 32/12b below, and see if you agree.

076 32/15c: "- - - the praises of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

077 33/21g: "- - - the Praise of Allah". But does he deserve it - if he exists? See 1/1a above.

078 33/41b: "Celebrate the praise of Allah - - -". Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

079 33/42: "And glorify him (Allah*) morning and evening." Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

080 34/1a: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a above, and see if you agree.

081 34/1e: "- - - to Him (Allah*) be praised in the Hereafter - - -". Only possible if he exists and is something supernatural (beware that it will be possible for followers to praise him even if he in case belongs to the dark forces).

082 34/6i: "(Allah is*) Worthy of all praise". See f x. 1/1a and 34/2 and see if you agree - if he exists, which is never proved.

083 34/41a: "Glory to Thee (Allah*)!" Please read 1/1a and see if you thing he deserves it - if he exists.

084 35/15c: "- - - Allah is - - - worthy of all praise". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of the sharia laws, and about Allah's real - not claimed, but real - goodness, benevolence and mercy. See afterwards if you agree to this verse.

085 36/33-35: Muhammad claims nearly all and everything of natural phenomena as indications for Allah and/or glorification for him, without even one single time trying to prove that it really is Allah who is behind it. It all is just unproved words and claims - just like so many other religions. Invalid as indication, not to mention as proofs, as long as it is not first proved that it is Allah's work. Also see 11/7a above.

086 36/36a: “Glory to Allah - - -". See 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it.

087 36/83a: "So glory to Him (Allah*) - - -". Please read 1/1a and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

088 37/166b: "- - - declare (Allah's) glory!" Please read 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

089 39/3a: "Is it not to Allah that sincere devotion is due?" No. Not unless he really exists and is a major god. There only exist claims for his existence, and on top of all just in a book full of mistakes, and dictated by a man of very doubtful moral standing (this in spite of Muslims' glorification of him - also Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot were glorified by themselves and by their followers - especially by the mentally blind ones, and the ones who had things to gain by believing or "believing"). Also see 39/2f just above.

090 39/4c: "- - - Glory be to Him (Allah*)!" Please read 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

091 39/7d: "- - - if you are grateful, He (Allah*) is pleased with you". Allah is very self-centered.

092 39/66b: "- - - and be among those who give thanks". For what as long as there in all history and prehistory has been not one proved case of a deed or a gift from Allah? Lots of claims, but never anything but claims and lose words. Also see 39/66a just above.

093 40/55h: "- - - celebrate the Praises of thy (Muslims*) Lord (Allah) - - -". Read 1/1a and see if he deserves it - if he exists.

##094 40/55j: “- - - Praises thy Lord in the evening and in the morning.” This with prayers at fixed times of the day - actually there are 5 a day - was so essential for Allah, that they became one of the 5 main pillar for his religion. Whereas Yahweh was totally uninterested in that kind of formalism - pray when there was a wish or a need. One more of the 100% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah were not the same god.

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are taught that a question or problem which really can have only one valid solutions, can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious. But this ONLY is true if parallel true solutions are possible. F.x. in cases where 2 or more possible solutions are mutually excluding each other, maximum 1 of the mutually excluding ones can be true. Islam teaches differently. It should be a bit thought provoking for Muslims, that just this "small" difference in theoretical thinking and teaching, was one of the reasons (there were several of course) for why Europe and the West exploded into the Technical Revolution, while the Muslim area stagnated). Two star examples are: 1): Full predestination is not possible even for an omnipotent god to combine with even the smallest piece of free will for man - the two are mutually excluding. Islam is teaching differently. 2): The same for full and unchangeable predestination long time before, combined with any claimed effect of prayers - the two are mutually excluding each other. Islam is teaching differently.)

Another fact: Today it is easy by means of statistical methods to check if prayers have any effect. (Let f.x. 1ooo persons each pray for one among 1ooo unknown persons sick or in other ways in need. compare the result after some time with a similar group of 1ooo who has not been prayed for, and see if there is a difference. If there is a positive difference, this would be a strong indication or perhaps even a proof for something - a proof Islam strongly and dearly needs, as they have not any proof for even a single of its central claims. But it has not even tried to make such a test. Why?)

095 40/65e: "Praise be to Allah - - -". See 1/1a and find out if he deserves it - if he exists.

096 41/37d: "- - - adore Allah, Who created them (the sun and the moon*) - - -". The same claim as most religions put forth - and just as reliable, as the Quran is never able to prove anything at all, just claims and words and glorification of blindness in religion (blind belief).

097 41/42e: “- - - Worthy of all Prize.” Is a claimed, but never proved deity who makes so many mistakes, worthy of all praise? Hardly. Also see 1/1a above.

098 42/5b: "- - - (- - - His (Allah's*) Glory ) - - -". Often claimed, never neither shown, nor proved.

099 42/5c: "- - - the Praises of their Lord (Allah*) - - -". See 1/1a above and see if he deserves it - if he exists, and if he really in case is a god.

100 42/28d: "(Allah) is Worthy of all Praise". Please read the surahs from Medina, the immoral parts of the Islamic moral code, the unjust/immoral parts of the sharia laws, and the Islamic rules for murdering opponents and for warfare, suppression, stealing/robbing, rape, enslaving, lying (al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah), deceit, breaking oaths, etc., and see if you agree.

101 45/36a: "- - - Praise be to Allah - - -". Read 1/1a and see if he merits praise - if he exists.

102 45/37a: "- - - to Him (Allah*) be Glory - - -". Read 1/1a and see if he is worth it.

103 50/39c: "- - - the praises of thy Lord (Allah) - - -". See 1/1a and see if you agree to that he deserves it - - - if he exists.

104 56/96a: "- - - celebrate with praises the name of thy (Muslims'/people's*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". For one thing there is no proved reason for doing so, for another see 1/1a above and see if he deserves so in any case - - - if he exists.

105 57/1b: "- - - declare the Praises - - - of Allah - - -". Please see 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it - if he exists.

106 57/1c: "- - - the - - - Glory of Allah - - -". Look at 1/1a once more - is he really glorious? Then read the acts and deeds and demands and moral codes, etc. in the Quran - read the realities, not the glorifying words - and see if he really is glorious - as said; if he exists.

107 57/24c: "- - - Allah is - - - worthy of all praise". Read 1/1a and see if you agree.

108 59/24b: "- - - whatever is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth, doth declare His (Allah's*) Praise and Glory - - -". "Whatever" not "whoever" - once more animism or at least anthropomorphism - hallmarks for primitive pagan religions and for fairy tales.

109 61/1c: "- - - the Praise and Glory of Allah". Read 1/1a and see if he deserves it - - - if he exists.

110 62/1c: "- - - the Praises and Glory of Allah - - -". Read 1/1a above - does he deserve it?

111 62/10c: "- - - celebrate the Praises of Allah - - -". This will be in vain if he does not exist and in addition is a god (not to mention the effect if he exists, but belongs to the dark forces, which a number of his(?) rules may indicate).

112 62/10d: "- - - celebrate the Praises of Allah - - - that ye (Muslims*) may prosper". There will be no such effect unless he exists and is something supernatural (not necessarily a god).

113 64/1a: “Whatever is in the heavens (plural and wrong*) and on earth, doth declare the praise and glory of Allah - - -”. No. 62/1a above is cemented. Besides: It is said "whatever", not "whoever" = animism and/or anthropomorphism. (You meet this some places in the Quran. Animism and anthropomorphism you normally meet in primitive religions and in fairy tales.) This simply is not true - easy for anybody to see. F.x. the majority of humans do not even believe in Allah, and when did you last time see animals, birds, fish, slugs, and plants bow down to Allah, direction Mecca, 5 times a day?

114 64/1c: "- - - to Him (Allah*) belongs Praises and Glory - - -". See 1/1a and see if you agree.

115 68/28a: "Why not glorify (Allah)?". According to 68/18-28 you absolutely should do - not necessarily because you love him and wants to do so, but because Allah wants/demands it, and may grow mean if you do not humor him.

116 68/28b: "Why not glorify (Allah)?". Read 1/1a above - does he deserve it? Besides: If he does not exist, it does not have any effect.

117 68/28a: "Why not glorify (Allah)?". According to 68/18-28 you absolutely should do - not necessarily because you love him and wants to do so, but because Allah wants/demands it, and may grow mean if you do not humor him.

118 76/25: "And celebrate the name of your (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". = Pray to or glorify. But what is the value and effect of prayers if Allah long since has predestined everything, and all is unchangeable? And as for glorifying: See 1/1a above and see if you think he deserves it - - - if he exists.

As for the value of prayers in Islam, also see 62/9c. And if you combine 62/9c with 67/9c - a strong one - you get something thought-provoking. (And relevant here: Muslims often are taught that a question or problem which really can have only one valid solutions, can have 2 or more true and correct solutions - Islam is forced to teach this, because if not many of the mistakes and contradictions in the Quran become too obvious.

But it has not even tried to make such a test. Why?)

119 76/25-26: "- - - celebrate the name of your (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) morning and evening, and part of the night, prostrate thyself to Him (Allah*), and glorify Him (Allah*) a long night through". These big doses of glorification and servility demanded by Allah, is quite different from What Yahweh expects - respect and glorification ok, but not on total servility and in buckets-full more or less round the clock. One more clear indication for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

Also remember that when the Quran claims Allah has no wants, this is wrong: He wants prayers, he wants, glorifying, he wants servility. Etc.

120 85/8c: "- - - Allah - - - Worthy of all Praise!" 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 and introduced rules, we at least always believe in the demands and deeds and the introduced codes and rules - words are too cheap to use and disuse.
