Allah in the Quran, Chapter 59

 

Chapter 59

THE BEST RELIGIOUS DEEDS

 

001 There are many kinds of good deeds according to the Quran - take care of orphans, help the old or invalids, give in charity, help finance wars, spread Islam, etc. - but there is no doubt what are the best deeds according to Allah(?), the Quran, Muhammad, and Islam: To go to war to suppress and steal and rape and suppress and kill.

###### 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?

#002 2/27d: "- - - (bad Muslims/non-Muslims*) do mischief on earth - - -". And what do good Muslims do when they go raiding, suppressing, stealing/robbing, raping, killing, etc. like the Quran claims are the best of deeds if done in the name of Allah? (In the name of the god - an extra disgusting fact).

003 2/112a: "- - - doer of good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. The best of good deeds f.x. are to go to war and steal and rape and enslave and murder in the name of the god - the last fact makes it extra disgusting.

004 2/158f: "- - - to (do*) good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - though in this case it is likely it indicates giving to the poor or something (but normally the best deed in the Quran is to wage raids and wars for Muhammad and his successors in the name of Allah - including stealing, raping, enslaving, killing).

005 2/190b: "Fight in the cause of Allah - - -". This way of thinking is incompatible with at least NT, and one of the many proofs for that Yahweh and Allah is not the same god - unless he is strongly schizophrenic. (Also in OT the fighting was not for the god, but to make room for and later defend a Jewish nation).

In a way worse - at least morally: The Quran makes it ever so clear that the best religious deed, is to fight in raids and wars for Allah/Muhammad (and nearly all of these were raids and wars for stealing, robbing, extortion, rape, slave taking, etc., and later also for spreading Islam directly or indirectly by means of the sword.

006 2/191f: “- - - fight them (non-Muslims - in this case originally the old regime that still ruled in Mecca most likely*) not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there, but if they fight you there, slay them.” Even at sacred ground it is just to kill. Of course if there really is no way to calm down a situation, what has to be done has to be done. But as a general order as the only answer to use, it tells something about Islam. Proof for what it tells? - when conquering Mecca in 630 AD, Muhammad had one of his opponents murdered in the Kabah mosque itself, and he was not even fighting; the Muslims just murdered him there on Muhammad's specific order.

Honest words for your money - and the best of religious deeds according to the Quran

###007 2/193d: "And fight them (non-Muslims*) until - - - there prevail - - - faith in Allah." This is one of the essences in verse 193. Worth remembering and to beware of. Especially as the exact and correct translation according to A: "The Message of the Quran" is: "- - - and religion belongs to Allah (alone)"(!!)

The best of all religious deeds according to the Quran, is to fight in raids and wars for Muhammad/Allah - and like here in addition force Islam on non-Muslims (or kill them if they resists) must be an added bonus.

008 2/195c: "- - do good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the Quran's own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best deed according to the Quran, was to go to war for Muhammad/Allah.

009 2/197e: "- - good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the Quran's own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best deed according to the Quran, was to go to war and steal, rob, suppress and kill for Muhammad/Allah.

010 2/197f: "- - right conduct - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is meant in accordance with the Quran's own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best deed and the most right conduct according to the Quran, was to go to war and steal, rob, suppress and kill for Muhammad/Allah. What is right conduct in Islam, sometimes varies quite a lot from what is right conduct in normal religions (Islam is at some points abnormal, as it is a war religion, and has to serve this purpose - see the book about Jihad/Holy War (Book B) under https://www.1000mistakes.com ).

####011 2/216a: “Fighting is prescribed for you (Muslims*) - - -.” A more direct verbal incitement is difficult to find, unless it is accompanied by threats and/or promises of wealth, power/status and women – in this and/or the next life - - - like it is in the Quran.

According to the Quran fighting for Muhammad (Allah?) was and is and will forever be the best of religious deeds.

012 2/216i: “- - - Allah knoweth (what is good for you and whether you went to war or not*) - - -“. Incentive for war with added threat of punishment in the next life if not. And one point of some weight: Here on Earth it was Muhammad who told what Allah thought was wise and good - and the fighting Muhammad wanted, clearly was the best of services to Allah.

013 2/218b: “- - - those (Muslims*) who suffered exile and fought (and strove and struggled) in the path of Allah - they have the hope of the Mercy of Allah: - - -”. Many of the first Muslims in Mecca had to flee from the town and had a rough time. But general meaning: Fight for Allah and be likely to go to Paradise (and if you are killed for Allah, you are sure to go there). That is to say: If Allah exists:

There exists a letter dated 27. Dec. 1998, where it is admitted rather reluctantly that there are no proofs for Allah, and that it is not possible to prove him. Actually that is part of a wider fact: It is not possible for humans to prove a god. This only a god can do (by doing something supernatural). And this is very clear: Neither Allah nor Muhammad produced a single proof for Allah, in spite of many requests. (But Jesus did give many proofs for Yahweh and for himself according to both the Quran and the Bible - if at least one of them speaks the truth about this.)

014 2/246f: "- - - fight in the cause of Allah". Even though this is (pretended to be) said to the Jews, it is one of the points behind the laws for war in the sharia laws. And the best service for Allah(?) and for Muhammad.

015 2/256h: "- - - Evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - remember f.x. that the best of good deeds is to go to war or on raids for Allah and in his name steal and rape and suppress and enslave and kill (the fact that it is done in the name of their presumed god, makes it all even more despicable).

016 2/256k: "- - - trustworthy - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - remember f.x. that the best of good deeds is to go to war or on raids for Allah and in his name steal and rape and suppress and enslave and kill (the fact that it is done in the name of their presumed god, makes it all even more despicable).

017 3/13ba: "- - - fight in the cause of Allah - - -". Any comments necessary? - the best of religious deeds.

018 3/134e: "- - - do good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses such words, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best of deeds in the Quran is to go to war and steal and rape and suppress and kill in the name of Allah.

019 3/135a: "- - - (not*) wronged their own souls - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

020 3/135d: "- - - (the wrong) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses such words, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. Remember f.x. that the best of deeds in the Quran is to go to war and steal and rape and suppress and kill in the name of Allah - and one of the worst wrongs you can do, is to refuse to do this.

021 3/148d: “For Allah loveth those who do good (in this case: To wage war for Allah and Muhammad*)”. To do battle for Allah - to steal and burn and kill and murder and destroy and rape for the good and benevolent deity - is a good thing which Allah loves. (Actually that it shall be made in the name of the god, makes it even more disgusting.) Did anyone say that modern terrorists have to twist the words of the Quran to find incitements to their deeds? And also: Muhammad got cheap warriors and gained wealth and power - in wars and robberies that really were illegal according to the Quran, as they in reality were wars of aggression, not really of defense. And they gave him the possibility to rape at least two women - Rayhana bint Amr and Safijja bint Huayay.

022 4/57b: "- - - deeds of righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - f.x. one of the very best deeds is to fight and kill and steal and suppress for Muhammad and his claimed god.

023 4/66b: "(To go to war and*) sacrifice their (Muslims'*) lives - - - would have gone farthest to strengthen their (faith)". A paradox if Islam claims to be "the religion of peace". But according to the Quran no doubt the greatest religious deed is to go on raids or to war for Muhammad/Allah. They in reality mainly were for stealing riches and taking prisoners - girls and women for rape and slaves and sometimes for extortion, men for extortion or slavery. Later also for spreading Islam - directly or indirectly by means of the sword. (Suppression and often hard taxation, etc. backed by the sword, which you only could get out of by becoming a Muslim.)

##024 4/71c: “O ye who believe! Take your precautions, and either go forth (in war*) in parties or go forth all together”. You find nothing like this in NT (and like in the Quran the newer parts normally supersedes the older ones). One more of the many points which alone proves that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, not to mention Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion - and then there are all the other proofs in addition.

*025 4/74a: “Let those fight in the cause of Allah who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter”. If you are willing to exchange your life here on Earth for a future life in Paradise, you should be permitted to - and qualified to - wage war for Allah. (Only let us hope you are not cheated. If something is wrong in the Quran - and at least a huge number of facts and much of the logic are wrong, etc. - you may be in for quite a surprise if there is a next life. Not to mention what a rude awakening you will have if Islam is a dreamed-up religion, and there is another religion which is true. But in the meantime Muslim leaders have a cheap source for power, warriors and terrorists).

026 4/74d: “To him who fighteth in the cause of Allah - whether he is slain or gets victory - soon shall we give him a reward of great (value) (= Paradise*)”. What can be a better reward - - - if it is true? And what can be a cheaper way for leaders to get warriors, than promises of payment in the next life? - especially if the religion is made up (and remember that this is likely, as the Quran with all its mistakes is from no god) and the Quran's paradise thus does not exist.

But if Yahweh and Jesus rule the perhaps next life, good Muslims will not find that the gate to Heaven opens automatically. And likely the same if other gods rule - the Quran is a bit too immoral and too inhuman for most religions.

027 4/78e: "But what hath come over these people (contemporaries of Muhammad*) that they fail to understand a single fact (that the best is to go to war and end in Paradise)?". If man has full or partly free will, that they failed to "understand" that war was best, could not reliably be written in the claimed "Mother Book" until after it had happened. One more of the many texts or quotes in the Quran which could not have been reliably written into the claimed "Mother Book" (13/39b, 43/4b+c, 85/21-22) in Heaven (of which the Quran is claimed to be a copy) eons ago, unless predestination was and is 100% like the Quran claims many places. If man has free will - even partly only (an expression some Muslims use to flee from the problem full predestination contra free will for man, and an expression no Muslim we have met has ever defined.) - and can change his mind, full and reliable clairvoyance about the future, not to mention the distant future, is impossible even for a god, as the man always could/can change his mind or his words once more, in spite of Islam's claims. There are at least 3 reasons - 2 of them unavoidable - for this:

  1. When something is changed, automatically the future is changed.
  2. The laws of chaos will be at work and change things, if even a tiny part is made different.
  3. The so-called "Butterfly Effect"; "a butterfly flapping its wing in Brazil may cause a storm in China later on" or "a small bump may overturn a big load".

This that Allah predestines everything like the Quran claims and states many places, is an essential point, because besides totally removing the free will of man (in spite of the Quran's claims of such free will, or some Muslims' adjusted "partly free will for man" - to adjust the meanings where the texts in the Quran are wrong, is typical for Islam and its Muslims) - it also removes the moral behind Allah's punishing (and rewarding) persons for what they say and do - Allah cannot reward or punish people for things he himself has forced them to say or do, and still expect to be believed when he (Muhammad?) claims to be a good or benevolent or moral or just god. Also see 2/51b and 3/24a above.

###028 4/84b: “Then fight in Allah’s cause - - -”. The religion of peace? - from a good and benevolent god? All the same: The greatest religious deed according to the Quran.

029 4/84d: "- - - rouse the Believers (to armed combat*)". May be this is what some imams, mullahs and others are doing? Well, drop "may be".

##### 030 4/89-90a: "But if they (Muslims*) turn renegades (leave/oppose Islam*), seize them and slay them wherever you find them; and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks; Except those who join a group between whom and you there is a treaty (of peace), or those who approach you with hearts restraining from fighting you as well as fighting their own people." Background for the sharia laws + the best of religious deeds according to the Quran - at least practically as good as going on raids or to war for Muhammad (and Allah?).

###031 4/90b: “- - - hearts restraining them (persons from the enemies*) from fighting you as well as fighting their own people”. The ideal is fighting for Muhammad/Allah. One of the many points in the Quran which singlehanded proves that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion - and then there are all the other proofs.

##032 4/91b: "- - - seize them (unreliable non-Muslims*) and slay them wherever you (Muslims*) get them - - -.” Whoever believes NT and the Quran is from the same god, has never seen a Bible - let alone opened one. One more of the clear proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

##033 4/95b: “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive in the cause of Allah with their goods and their person. Allah hath granted a grad higher to those who strive with their goods and their persons”. Clear words: Go to war or terrorism and end in a better part of Paradise - there are at least 4 or 6 different qualities of Gardens there + the higher heavens according to the Quran. Incitement “de luxe”.

034 4/95f: "Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive (fight*) with their goods and persons than those who sit (at home)". Strongly contradicted by especially in NT - in NT physical fighting is not accepted at all. One more proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. 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.

035 4/95+96a: “- - - those who strive hath Allah distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward – Ranks specially bestowed by Him (Allah*), and Forgiveness (for anything if you are killed in battle*) and Mercy.” No doubt who is the best Muslim and what is the best deed in Islam – the warrior and the war are most pleasing to Allah. (To call Islam “The religion of peace” is an insult to the intelligence of everybody who has read the surahs from Medina with an open mind.)

As for forgiveness see 2/187d above.

036 4/95+96b: “- - - those who strive hath Allah distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward – Ranks specially bestowed by Him (Allah*), and Forgiveness (for anything if you are killed in battle*) and Mercy.” The total and 180 degree difference from NT - in NT physical fighting is not accepted at all. One more proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion - and one of the many proofs which each alone proves this.

But remember as for punishments and rewards - and forgiving: They cannot be given unless there are made changes in the Plan of Allah, which several verses in the Quran states nobody and nothing can make. (A predestined reward is not a reward, but theater.)

037 4/104a: "And slacken not in following up the enemy - - -". The religion of peace (!!). (Compare it to NT: Forgive your enemy.) And: Fighting non-Muslims - in the beginning mostly for stealing/robbing, raping, taking prisoners for extortion or slavery, later also for spreading Islam - was and is the greatest of religious deeds, according to the Quran.

038 4/125c: "- - - does good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and suppress - and worse - others.

039 4/135c: "- - - justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code and its partly as unjust and immoral sharia laws. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and suppress - and worse - others.

040 4/135f: "- - - decline to do justice - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and suppress - and worse - others.

041 4/147b: "- - - (all good) - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and suppress - and worse - others.

042 4/148c: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and suppress - and worse - on others.

043 4/149b: "- - - evil - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and suppress - and worse - on others.

044 4/168c: "- - - do wrong - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and rob and suppress - and worse - on other people.

045 4/173b: "- - - deeds of righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. F.x. one of the best deeds is to wage raids and wars and rob and rape and suppress - and worse - other people.

0446 5/35d: “- - - strive with might and main (normally in the Quran this means “fight in war”*) in His (Allah’s*) cause.” A clear order. Islam "the religion of peace" like Muslims often claim? Or Allah a god of peace?

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

####047 5/35g: “- - - strive with might and main (see 5/35a-b just above*) 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 suppress in the name of your god - a claimed good and benevolent god.

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

048 5/54e: “- - - fighting in the way of Allah - - -”. Unlike when you fight for Jesus and Yahweh - and many other gods - with your brain and words and good deeds, for your fights for Muhammad and Allah you fight with weapons and wage war and terror, and is paid by loot and rape and slaves - the laudable thing to do according to the Quran. Or - ?

049 5/93b: "- - - deeds of righteousness - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. (F.x. one of the best deeds is to go to war and steal and rob and rape and suppress and kill in the name of the good and benevolent god Allah.)

#050 5/93d: "For Allah loveth those who do good". Whenever we see sentences like this and similar, we remember the golden rule for moral: "Do unto others what you want others do unto you". And then we wonder if Allah is able to like Muslims living according to the harsh parts of the Quran's moral rules, and what that in case tells about Allah.

Besides Allah can love nobody unless he exists.

576 5/93e: "- - - do good - - -". See 5/93b above.

####051 6/108d: “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”.

Comment A6/92 (A6/93 in the 2008 English edition): “Lit., ‘thus goodly have we made….', etc. implying that it is in the nature of man to regard the belief which have been implanted in him from babyhood, and which he now shares with his social environment, as the only true and possible ones – whit the result that a polemic against those beliefs often tends to provoke a hostile psychological reaction.” This is said as an explanation why Islam sometimes meets a negative reaction. But the book skips the fact that ###########this also goes for Muslims: If they are strongly indoctrinated, they may react strongly to arguments and facts they do not like – and without thinking over – or being mentally able to think over – even true facts. This is likely to be the explanation for why most Muslims are able to be blind to all the mistakes and proofs for that things are very wrong in the Quran and thus with Muhammad and in Islam.

052 6/108e: “Thus have We (Allah*) made alluring to each people its own doings”. ######This sentence should be extremely thought-provoking also to Muslims. All the mistakes, etc., in the Quran proves 100% and more that the book is not from any god. And large parts of the religion and its moral code may - may - indicate that dark forces are involved (whereas all the wrong knowledge one believed was correct science in Arabia at that time + all the tales "borrowed" from Muhammad's surroundings strongly indicates that the Quran is made by one or more humans in Arabia at the time of Muhammad - with Muhammad as the prime suspect.)

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

053 6/154b: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

054 7/56g: "- - - those who do good". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with the book's own partly immoral moral code.

055 7/146g: "- - - the way of right conduct - - -". Believing in and obeying Muhammad - the claimed way to the Quran's and Islam's Paradise - see 10/9f below.

056 7/157g: "- - - just - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

057 8/16a: “If any (Muslim warrior*) do turn his back to the (the enemy*) on such a day (during battle) - - - he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell - - - “. Fight for Allah and Muhammad or end in Hell. One verse is the carrot, this one the whip. War is a central part of the life and the religion - - - "the Religion of Peace"!!! (This claim is a joke for anyone who really has read the Quran).

058 8/16aa: “If any (Muslim warrior*) do turn his back to the (the enemy*) on such a day (during battle) - - - he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell - - - “. Incompatible with NT. In reality also with OT as in OT the fighting was for securing a national territory, not to fight "holy" wars. Yahweh and Allah the same god? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets - if Muhammad had been a real prophet? Answers not necessary.

059 8/16b: “If any (Muslim warrior*) do turn his back to the (the enemy*) on such a day (during battle) - - - he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell - - - “. This also is mirrored in the sharia laws.

060 8/16c: “If any (Muslim warrior*) do turn his back to the (the enemy*) on such a day (during battle) - - - he draws on himself the wrath of Allah, and his abode is Hell - - - “. Compare this to NT. Jesus and Muhammad are miles apart - many miles.

061 8/53c: "- - - Allah is He Who heareth and knoweth (all things). The often repeated warning: Allah sees everything and knows everything. If you do good he will be kind to you (at least in the next life), but mind you: If you do bad he will punish you. Be good and obedient to Muhammad! ###Remember: The best of all deeds is to go on raids and war. Also see 2/233h above.

###062 8/57a: “If you gain the upper hand over them in war, disperse, with them those who follow them, that they may remember.” Many a Muslim warrior and warlord followed this order thoroughly – they certainly were remembered many places - - - except by all those who were dead. Sind (now approximately Pakistan), India, Armenia, Greeks in Turkey to mention a few - and not to forget Africa, included the slave hunters - tens of millions to the Muslim areas north of Sahara and in Asia (15 millions arrived alive according to Encyclopedia Britannica - the lowest number we have found (to all the Americas 14 mill. and a much lower death rate during transport, also this number according to E. B - the death rates during transports to Asia and Mediterranean Africa and especially the ones marching through Sahara, are so high that we are reluctant to believe it and therefore do not quote them)), plus the millions of slaves in Muslim areas south of Sahara. (The American and other slave traders seldom hunted for slaves themselves. They bought from local slave hunters - a large percentage of them Muslims.)

##########063 8/74b: "Those who believe, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith (today potentially ca. 0.5% according to Muslims - some say 1% - on Internet = ca. 6 mill. - or some 4 million excluded the children (future fighters/terrorists*) - say some 3-4 million youths and adults are actual or potential terrorists today (double if you say 1%) - in the cause of Allah. Then there are those who give (them) asylum and aid (potentially some 10 - 15% = 120 - 180 million included the 0.5% and children) and aid ((often money) some 30% according to science at least "understand why" the activists are active = some 360 million included children - children are included for the simple reason that we only have the total numbers of Muslims) - these are (all) in very truth the Believers - - -". Next time you meet a Muslim or someone else claiming terrorists and other Muslim warriors disuse the Quran to do their bloody work, show them this verse. #########The terrorists are not disusing the Quran - they are obeying it.

Tell the world how many Muslims there really are who "understand" the activists and how many potential terrorists there really are. But again: Remember that 70% of the Muslims are very ok. Be perhaps a little careful in given situations, but do not judge all and any Muslim to be a bad person - most of them are not, not even many of the 30%.

But there of course remains the problem: Who is who of them?

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

064 9/13d: “Will ye (Muslims*) not fight people who violated their oaths (like Muhammad did himself*), plotted to expel the Messenger, and took the aggressive lead by being the first (to assault) you?” The Quran says the best thing is to forgive - - - but why live according to one’s own words? To wage war and gain power for Muhammad and Islam is reality, the words are just words. And if you do not want to go to war, it is incredible! - you then are no good Muslim!!

As for forgiving from Allah: See 2/187d above.

**065 9/14e: “Fight them (the “unbelievers”*), and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them - - -”. When you fight non-Muslims, you are doing the work of the good and benevolent god Allah.

Some religion: Hating, fighting, stealing, plundering, raping, enslavement, and murdering are the work of the god.

And remember: The “ethics” in the Quran was for then, for now and forever - for us and for our children and our descendants for all future.

“What a wonderful world!” to quote Louis Armstrong.

But why does an omnipotent god need humans for doing the killing and suppression?

###066 9/16c: “Or think that ye (Muslims*) that ye shall be abandoned (by Allah and not be rewarded for going to war*), as though Allah did not know those among you who strive with might and main (for the religion*)- - -.” Compare this to the Bible. Even in the at places harsh OT, the wars were not for the religion, but to establish and later defend a national country for the Jews. And to compare it to NT and the teaching of Jesus simply has no meaning - the distance is too huge between Jesus and his teaching of love and peace, and Muhammad’s religion of distaste, suppression, hate, and war - if you cultivate distaste, distance between "us" and "the bad ones", and hate, it is easier to make your followers or underlings go to war. Muhammad invested much time and effort in such cultivation.

067 9/16g: "- - - strive with might and main - - -" = fight with everything you have got included your wealth and your life.

068 9/19a: “Do ye make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Sacred Mosque, equal to (the pious service of) those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and strive with their might and mind (wages war - see 9/16 just above*) in the cause of Allah?”

Of course the active warriors – or terrorists - are the best. f.x. the warriors in Darfur and terrorists anywhere think they are doing a pious service by killing and murdering - - and gang raping like in Darfur and other places where it is more like normal wars, not hit and run - and of course stealing and robbing for “good and lawful” reward also in this world.

Yes, a good and human and benevolent religion.

And some future for non-Muslims - one place in the Quran, the warriors are reminded that there are places with rich spoils of war not taken yet. In the West? – or other places? It does not matter – this verse tells once more that the warriors are the best Muslims - - - and that spoils of war are tempting.

069 9/19c: "- - - (the pious service of) those who - - - strive with might and main (= go to raids/war*) in the cause of Allah". The word "pious" here tells much more and a much truer story about Islam and its basic ethics and moral than cheap slogans like "the religion of peace". When reality collides with words of propaganda, we always believe in the reality. Islam is a pure war religion. (This reality also is easy to see if you read the surahs chronologically and see the development of Islam during the years of Muhammad, and the bloody war religion it became in Medina.)

070 9/19d: "- - - (the pious service of) those who - - - strive with might and main (= go to raids/war*) in the cause of Allah". This simply is the antipode of especially NT. Yahweh the same god as Allah? Jesus and Muhammad in the same line of prophets? No - antipodes only can be antipodes also for gods and for prophets.

**071 9/19h: “They (Muslims doing good deeds*) are not comparable in the sight of Allah (with the ones killing/waging raids/war for Muhammad/Allah*)”. Terrorists and others using weapons and murdering for Allah, are the best Muslims.

Guess if verses like these do their work on some single-minded or fanatic Muslims. Who said “there are verses in the Quran that can be disused for war and terror”? Wrong: It hardly is possible to be a really pious Muslim without using weapons against non-Muslims.

**072 9/19i: “They (Muslims doing good deeds*) are not comparable in the sight of Allah (with the ones killing/waging raids/war for Muhammad/Allah*)”. Terrorists and others using weapons and murdering for Allah, are the best Muslims. See 9/19h above.

***073 9/20b: “Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with their might and main (= fight in raids/war*), in Allah’s cause, with their goods (= giving money to war expenses*) and their persons (= fighting personally in raids/war or terrorism - “any stratagem of war”*), have the highest rank in the sight of Allah - - -”.

Terrorists (- any stratagem of war" -) and other warriors are doubtlessly the very best Muslims.

In possible future times of troubles - remember that Muslims are ordered to make Islam the dominant religion and to suppress the members of all other religions - the few (? - 30% of Muslims “understand why terrorists do what they do“ according to international polls, tough that number varies some*). Muslims living according to the highest “ethics” for Muslims, will make a powerful and efficient 5. column in the West and other places. That is a simple military and security fact.

***074 9/20c: “Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with their might and main (= fight in raids/war*), in Allah’s cause, with their goods (= giving money to war expenses*) and their persons (= fighting personally in raids/war or terrorism - “any stratagem of war”*), have the highest rank in the sight of Allah - - -”. It is hardly worth the bother to tell that you find nothing like this in the Bible, not to mention in NT. Yahweh the same god as Allah? Jesus in the same line of prophets as Muhammad? Anyone able to believe such claims either need much more knowledge or a psychiatrist.

075 9/20e: "(Warriors/terrorists*) have the highest rank in the sight of Allah". One more of the revealing fundamental points in the Quran. It is facts like these which tells the true story about Islam, not the cheap propaganda glorifications like "the very good man Muhammad" or "the Religion of Peace". And these many revealing points scattered all over especially the surahs from Medina, uniformly tell a dark story: A religion of war, suppression, apartheid - and not least about lawful dishonesty, lawful immoral and lawful inhumanity. (There are many parallels to Djingis Khan's war religion, to Nazism and to apartheid. Islam also has a superiority complex against all non-Muslims - it f.x. is seriously debated f.x. in north Pakistan if even "the people of the Book" have half the value of a Muslim or less, and the Pagans are even worth far less).

*076 9/20g: “- - - they (terrorists/warriors*) are the people who will achieve (salvation)”. At least the Quran is honest about some things - just like Hitler was in “Mein Kampf” - - - and few did believe Hitler until it was too late.

And not least: It is repeating one of the main incitements to war for Muhammad/Allah.

077 9/21f: "- - - Gardens for them (Muslim warriors and terrorists - through the centuries there have been many terrorists from Islam (f.x. the Assassins, but also warriors and "normal" people)*)". In the Bible it is not possible to go to Paradise as reward for war and terrorism and murder, etc. - and especially not in NT (a reason for thinking if the two gods had been one and the same: There may have been a reason why a god changed his teaching to a milder, but how to explain that an omniscient god like Allah is claimed to be, changed to softer, for then to become MUCH more bloody and spiteful and hateful than he ever was before?

*078 9/22b: “They (terrorists/warriors*) will dwell therein (in paradise) forever. Verily in Allah’s presence is a reward, the greatest (of all)”. Warriors/terrorists are in so high esteem in the eyes of Allah, that they will be invited to live in the parts of paradise that has Allah’s presence. (In the Muslim paradise some parts are even better than others - Jesus f.x. only lives in the 2. heaven, whereas Moses was a better prophet and lives in heaven number four, and top prophets like Abraham and Muhammad of course in number seven, closest to Allah, who resides above number seven. In addition some regions of the heavens are better than others - in the heaven for ordinary Muslims, there f.x. are 4 or 6 or perhaps more gardens - Islam does not know for sure - one better than the other (just hope you, your wives and your children do not merit different gardens (a possibility the Quran never talks about)).

Compared to 9/21 this may be an even more ultimate pep talk and carrot.

###079 NB: 9/38d: In connection to verse 9/38 we quote from comment YA1299: "When a call (for war*) is made on behalf of a great cause (Islam*), the fortunate ones are those who have the privilege of responding to the call. The unfortunate ones are those who are so engrossed in their parochial affairs that they turn a deaf ear to the appeal. They are suffering from a spiritual disease". ####These comments are from our times, so you see that even now Muslim scholars mean that if you do not want to go to war whenever the religion calls, you are mentally ill. Further comments necessary?

And YA1300: "The choice is between two courses: will you choose a noble adventure (war*) and the glorious privilege of following your spiritual leader (to war), or grovel in the earth for some small worldly gain or for fear of worldly loss (f.x. your life or health*)?" "The Religion of Peace" anno nowadays.

Islam "the Religion of Peace" even today? Do not laugh - weep.

080 9/41a: “Go ye forth (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle (= fight*), with your goods and your person (money and life*), in the Cause of Allah. That is best for you, if you but knew”. Any comment necessary? The benevolent "Religion of Peace"?

Islam "the Religion of Peace"? Do not laugh - it is impolite.

####081 9/93d: "- - - they (the ones not wanting to go to war*) know not (what they miss)". Comment YA1345: "It is not only a duty, but a precious privilege, to serve a great Cause (Islam*) by personal self-sacrifice (to make war for it*). Those who shirk such an opportunity know not what they miss". This is the point of view of modern Muslim scholars - as mentioned before the comments are recent ones. "The Religion of Peace"? No further comments - and none necessary.

082 9/111d: “- - - they (warriors/terrorists*) fight in His (Allah’s (or Muhammad’s?*)) cause, and slay and are slain: (and get a great reward in Paradise*)”. Can anyone really read the Quran - even a Muslim - and afterwards believe the Quran represents a good, peaceful, benevolent god? One is reminded of the blood orgies of the Mayas and Incas, except that Islam mostly kills on the spot - like the Assyrians. And "the Religion of Peace"?? - it is up to you if you will laugh or weep from that slogan. May be there are reasons why they seldom claim Islam is "the Religion of Honesty"?

083 14/24-25: This must be understood like if a man brings forth good deeds, he will receive admonition. And of course the best of deeds was to go to war when Muhammad wanted.

084 16/41c: (A/42 – in 2008 edition 43): “To those who leave their homes in the cause of Allah (normally = goes to war for Muhammad/Allah*) - - - We (Allah*) will surely give a goodly home in this world; but truly the reward in the hereafter will be greater. If they only realize (this)!” This concerns the strained situation before Muhammad fled Mecca. Some followers fled to Africa, some preferred to risk staying in Mecca – flight was or seemed too dangerous for them. And then there were the non-Muslims. The last sentence in this verse concerns one of the two latter parts – but which? Baghawi, Zamakhshari, Razi and others mean the Quran here talks about the non-Muslims. Ibn Kathir and others mean it here is meant the Muslims who preferred to stay on in Mecca. Just pick your choice, because nobody knows what is right. A clear text not possible to misunderstand in the Quran?

085 16/96h: "- - - the best of their actions". Remember here that the best of actions was to go on raids and war for Muhammad and Allah - mainly for riches, captives, extortion, and slaves - but some for revenge and later also for spreading Islam (most of Muhammad's armed incidents were for this).

086 16/97i: "- - - the best of their actions". Remember here that the best of actions was to go on raids and war for Muhammad - mainly for riches, captives, extortion, and slaves - but some for revenge and later also for spreading Islam (most of Muhammad's armed incidents were for these causes).

087 17/25b: "- - - deeds of righteousness - - -". Beware that the Quran here compare to its own rather "special" and partly immoral moral code.

088 18/30e: "We (Allah) shall not suffer to perish the reward of any who do a (single) righteous deed". Note that in the Quran it is mainly the balance of good and bad deeds which will decide if you will end in Paradise of Hell. In NT the love of Yahweh towards an honestly repenting and regretting sinner counts heavily. (But then Muhammad needed warriors, and waging war for Muhammad/Allah was and is the best of deeds in the Quran.) Also here it is clear that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

089 18/46b: "- - - but the things that endure, Good Deeds, are the best in the sight of thy (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". And as the best of all deeds were to go on raids or to war for riches, captives/extortion and power for Muhammad/Allah, may be Muhammad also liked these words?

090 18/46c: "- - - Good Deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. f.x. some of the very best deeds are to fight and kill and steal for Muhammad and for his successors.

091 19/76c: "- - - Good Deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is meant in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - f.x. are going on raids and to war and steal, kill and suppress for the benevolent and good god Allah, for Muhammad and for his successors, among the very best deeds, and to rape female victims included children (at least down to 9 years old) is "lawful and good".

092 20/82e: "- - - do right - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code - f.x. some of the best deeds were - and are - to steal and kill and suppress others for Allah and Muhammad.

093 22/58b: This is one of the verses from 624 AD: "Those who leave their home in the cause of Allah, and are then slain or die - on them will Allah bestow, verily, a goodly Provision (Paradise*) - - -". Why did it take 12 years from Muhammad started his mission till he mentioned this for the first time, even though it is one of the central "facts" in the revised Islam?

(Beware that even though Muhammad started his mission in 610, he was not very active outside his family and nearest ones the first few years. But also later he did not mention the above until he started needing warriors.)

##094 22/58c: "Those who leave their home in the cause of Allah, and are then slain or die - on them will Allah bestow, verily, a goodly Provision (Paradise*) - - -". Except for real martyrs (the Quran calls everything martyrs, included aggressive warriors, terrorists, and whatever) guess if here is a difference between Yahweh and Allah, between Jesus and Muhammad! Not the same god and not the same kind of representatives on Earth by far.

095 22/77c: "- - - do good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's partly immoral moral code - where f.x. stealing/robbing, lying, suppressing, enslaving, killing in the name of Allah, are the best of good deeds. "Do unto others like you want others do unto you" is not an essential sentence in the Quran's moral code or elsewhere in the book.

096 23/61b: "- - - good work - - -". Beware that when words like this are used in the Quran, it is meant relative to the Quran's partly immoral moral code - the best of works was f.x. to wage war for Muhammad/Allah.

097 29/7e: "- - - We (Allah*) shall reward them (good Muslims in the possible next life*) according to their best deeds (and the best deed for Muslims, is war or raids for Allah and Muhammad and his successors*)". This only is true if Allah exists and is a major god, and if the Quran in addition has told the full truth and only the truth on relevant points - and if he can reward/punish without changing his own unchangeable predestined Plan. One more never proved claim.

098 31/3d: "- - - Good - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all moral and all ethics, and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you". The Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places. (F. x. the best deeds were raids and wars in the name of Allah - most of them in reality for riches, slaves and power. Muslims defend this with that such behavior only is permitted during jihad - holy war. But that is no defense - doing it in the name of the god in reality makes stealing, rape, enslavement, torture, and murder even more despicable. Besides "everything" is named jihad.)

099 31/8b: "- - - righteous deeds - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all moral and all ethics and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places.

103 31/30f: "- - - Falsehood - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code.

105 32/12b: "- - - the guilty ones - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code. Compared to the one and fundamental "constitution" of all inter-human moral and ethics, and of moral and ethical rules: "Do unto others like you want others to do unto you", the Quran's - and thus Islam's - moral code is unethical and immoral a number of places, even horrible some places.

106 32/19e: "- - - (good) deeds - - -". See the remark to 32/12b and 32/19c above, and remember especially that the best of all good deeds according to the Quran, is to make raids and wars for stealing and raping and killing and enslaving for Allah - - - and for Muhammad and his successors.

107 33/29g: "- - - well-doers - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is relative to the book's own partly immoral moral code.

###108 43/37e: (YA4639): "The downward course in evil is rapid. But the most tragic consequence is that evil persuades its victims to believe that they are pursuing good. They think evil to be their good. They go deeper and deeper into the mire, and become more and more callous." Think of the immoral parts of the Quran's moral code, the unethical parts of its ethical code, the unjust parts of its laws, the inhuman parts of its war code (compare all of it to the one and only main moral code "do onto others like you want others do onto you", and you easily see the immoral, etc. parts) - is this point describing Muslims?

109 45/30b: “- - - those who believed and did righteous deeds, their Lord (Allah*) will admit them to His Mercy - - -.” Plain and simple - if Allah exists. (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.

110 56/7+10b: “(At the Day of Doom) ye shall be sorted out in three classes - - - And those Foremost (in Faith) will be the Foremost (in the Hereafter).” The best Muslims – and that of course include the fiercest fighters – will go to the best places in Heaven, and also nearest to Allah. Of the rest the ones sorted to the right will go to the lower quality parts of Heaven, whereas the ones sorted to the left will go to Hell. (A small curiosity here: In the old Arabia right was reckoned to be the “good” side and left the “bad” side. Is it a coincidence that the omniscient god for the entire world sorted the dead ones according to customs and rules in after all tiny Arabia on Earth?)

111 58/11c: A sample of Islamic good deeds (and also see next comment just below): "And when you are told to rise up, rise up - - -". Muhammad Asad's translation in the Swedish 2002 edition: "And when you are told 'Rise up!' - then rise up (at once)". Muhammad Asad's comment (A58/20, translated from Swedish 2002 AD edition): "Many of the classical commentators, among them especially clearly Tabari - - - means that the underlying meaning here is: "If you are told: 'Raise up and do good', follow then this incitement". - According to Ibn 'Abbas and Al-Hasan al-Basri, quoted by Ibn Kathir, the underlying meaning in this connection is "- - - prepare for going to war".

The Good Deed may be going to war to kill and rob and rape and suppress.

The religion of peace(!!)

###112 58/11d: And a sample of honesty in Islamic religious debate: The same text and comment as in 58/11c just above, but from the adjusted and more "correct" English 2008 edition:

Muhammad Asad's translation according to this edition (and NB: According to our knowledge he died long before 2008 AD): "And whenever you are told, 'Rise up (for a good deed)', do raise up - - -". And his claimed comment: (A58/20): "The interpretation implied in the words 'for a good deed' interpolated by me (Asad !!*) is analogous to that offered by most classical commentators, and most explicitly by Tabari (see 58/11c just above*); in the words of Qatadah (ibid.), "Whenever you are called to do a good deed, respond to this call".

The words that it means going to war - see 58/11c just above - have "disappeared", and this is not done by Muhammad Asad, as he was dead by then, but the book does not tell the readers that it is someone else who has made the book more politically "correct". Islam is too peaceful to be honest about such things.

Honesty and reliability in Islamic religious literature and debate.

How much is really honesty and reliability in Islamic religious literature and debate - not to say propaganda?

Do you understand why we say that it is heavy work to study Islamic literature, because every piece of "information" have to be checked to find out if it is true or not?

113 64/17a: “If you loan to Allah, a beautiful loan - - -". In the Quran this expression normally incites you to fight in raids/war for Allah/Muhammad and risk your life for him/them - the best of all religious deeds according to the Quran.

####114 73/20d: “He (Allah*) knoweth that there may be (some) among you - - - fighting in Allah’s cause”. This is the only mentioning of fighting up to around 616 AD - and there was nearly nothing before 622 AD when Muhammad started to need warriors for his raids for wealth, etc., in a period where Muhammad had brought nearly 50 - fifty - surahs, not one of which even mention the word fighting (more than 80 after 622 AD). And as is shown below there is no other unmistakable mentioning of fighting during all the 12 years before Muhammad had to flee to Yathrib (now Medina) - and even this verse may simply mean mental fighting by means of words and deeds, not by means of the sword. This in spite of how central the war for Allah and for Muhammad became. Did Allah change his mind after some years? Or was it Muhammad who changed as he gained power? This early Muhammad did not have enough followers to really fight with weapons, and perhaps it here just is meant fighting with words. But in case it at this time only meant fighting with words, it is even stranger that Allah later so totally changed his mind, from a peaceful religion to one of war and hate and apartheid with so much stress on the duty to fight and die for Allah and Muhammad. If he was omniscient, he should from the very beginning have known what a gift it was to Allah that humans fought and killed each others in reverence to him - not to mention how unfair it was not to tell his first followers about this sure way to Paradise and the houris, etc., and deny them this easy way to the Next Life. Not to mention how unfair it was against the bad ones of his followers not to tell them that they really had a chance to come to Paradise: Be killed in war for Allah, and everything was forgiven, nearly no matter how bad a man you had been. But the really great mystery is: Why did and does an omnipotent god need humans to fight for him? There is no logic in this claim. (But there is logic if Muhammad wanted them to fight for himself.)

It is worth mentioning that Muslim scholars means the contents in this verse concerning fighting, does not belong here. Some - f.x. A73/12 (A73/13 in the English 2008 edition) - means it is written in the future tense, and thus about something which may happen (and did happen) later. The majority - f.x. YA5774 - means that these words were from Medina many years later, but included here (that verses are included in surahs from a different time, is not unusual in the Quran). ##### If any of these explanations is correct, there in reality was no - not one single - case of incitement to war or raids in the Quran until after Muhammad started to need warriors for raids for riches and later for conquests in and after 622 AD. (The "tone" in the verse is so typical for Medina and the war religion Islam developed into there, that it is highly likely the majority of the Muslim scholars are right - that this is a verse from Medina inserted in this surah from the much more peaceful time in Mecca.)

115 73/20f: "- - - fighting in Allah's cause - - -". One of the at least 200% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. Even in the centuries when the Jews fought wars - mainly (not exclusively, but mainly) from Joshua around 1195 BC and some centuries on - it was to establish and later defend a country for the Jews, NOT for the sake of the god. And to try to compare it with NT, is a waste of time. "Islam, the Religion of Peace" - is it a slogan based on al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) or an unintended black joke? (Why do Islam and Muslims so seldom claim that "Islam is the Religion of Honesty"?)
