Allah in the Quran, Chapter 54
01 Jan 2015
001 That the Quran claims the Muslims have Allah's blessing, is expressed in many ways in the book. Some places it is directly said, other places - many places - it is told f.x. by all the good promises Allah(?) gives them. Below we give some samples, but if you read the Quran, you will find many more.
002 They all have two things in common, though: Not one of them provably is from Allah, and not one of them provably is fulfilled - or will be fulfilled - by Allah.
##### Another - and serious - point is that to "explain" that the Quran means something different from what it really says, is to corrupt it. Both Muslims and Islam itself (the scalars’) often do this to "explain" away difficult points and errors in the Quran.
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 "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, suppression, raids and wars, plus the rules for treatment of girls and women - free, captives and slaves - and see if you agree. Always when there is a distance between words and corresponding demands and deeds, introduced rules, ideals and laws, etc., we personally believe in the demands and deeds, etc. Glorious words are cheap, demands and deeds, etc. are more reliable. Glorifying words and claims anyone can use and disuse. When you read, read what was demanded, advised and done and the introduced moral, etc, and distrust the glorious words - judge from realities, not from propaganda.
004 1/7a: "- - - those on whom Thou (Allah*) hast bestowed Thy Grace - - -". = Muslims - - - if Allah exists and if he in case is a god who have bestowed his grace on a war religion and its warriors.
005 2/157a: "- - - blessings from Allah - - -". If Allah exists. If he is behind the Quran. And if the Quran tells the full and only truth on this point.
006 2/213k: “Allah by His Grace guided the believers (by means of the Quran*) - - -“. A book with that many mistakes and invalid proofs, etc. is no guidance.
007 3/148c: “For Allah loveth those who do good - - -". Allah can love no-one unless he exists - and there is not one single proof, not even a clear indication, for his existence.
###But an extra point: What is the meaning of "good" in this connection? What the Quran calls "good" too often is far from good - often really bad - according to normal religions, normal moral codes and normal cultures. Cfr. f.x: "Do to others like you want others do to you" and compare it to the Quran's partly rather special moral code.
008 3/157e: "- - - mercy from Allah - - -". See 1/1a and 1/1e above.
009 3/159g: "For Allah loves - - -". See 3/159f just above.
010 4/113a: "- - - the Grace of Allah - - -". See 1/1a and 1/1e above.
011 6/162c: "- - - Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds (plural and wrong*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible which tells this is Yahweh's job. 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 loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
012 8/29g: "- - - Allah is the Lord of grace unbounded". Similar often claimed, never proved.
013 12/92e: "- - - He (Allah*) is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!" Well, there is the disturbing question of Yahweh and his mercy. Plus the as disturbing question: Does reality agree to the claim?
014 38/29c: “Here is a Book (the Quran*) which We (Allah*) have sent down unto thee (Muhammad*), full of blessings, - - -". A book full of errors and not from a god, is no blessing from anybody.
015 46/8d: "- - - (blessing) for me (Muhammad*) from Allah". Allah could not and cannot give blessing to anyone unless he exists and is a god. (Blessing from someone belonging to the dark forces, may hardly be a blessing).
016 62/11e: "The (blessing) from the Presence of Allah is better than any amusement or bargain". Definitely wrong if Allah does not exist or is not a (good) god, like the reality in and with the Quran indicates.
