Allah in the Quran, Chapter 98

 

Chapter 98

ALLAH'S - AND ISLAM'S (AND MUSLIMS' SOMETIMES) - RELIABILITY

 

For Muhammad's reliability also see the chapter about Muhammad lying in the Quran.

001 Reliability is a problem in Islam - for Islam, for Muslims and for non-Muslims. The reason is that the use of dishonesty was parts of Muhammad's policy and practice, and because of this became a natural and accepted part of the religion and the culture.

002 None other of the big religions has dishonesty as an integrated and accepted part of its religion. Islam has - al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), and Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing) - and permission for using deceit, betrayal, etc. (because Muhammad as said both confirmed it was permitted, and used it himself - f.x. when murdering the peace delegation from Khaybar), and not least acceptance for disusing/breaking even 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 is then cheating in the Quran?)).

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya and Kitman - and as far as we know also for Hilah - can be used at least in these cases:

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence permit or work permit in a rich country.)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Advisable if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Advisable if necessary to succeed.)

003 For deceit, betrayal, etc., and for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the other part is an opponent, and if f.x. the broken oath will give a better result - pay expiation afterwards if necessary. By implication this also goes for ordinary words and promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal word or promise.

004 But al-Taqiyya, etc. is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive someone – actually also in the medium run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve. But in the long run one learns that there is no way to really be sure if a Muslim speaks the full truth - or the truth at all - in serious questions. (This also may be a big problem for Muslims telling the truth about something without being believed - they have no reliable way of strengthening their words.)

005 In the long run the surroundings simply learn that it is impossible quite to trust a Muslim in serious questions: When is he speaking the honest truth and when is he using an al-Taqiyya or some other kind of "lawful" dishonesty? - lawful at least according to the Quran and to the Sharia laws.

006 Actually one correct name for Islam could be "the Religion of Dishonesty" - no other big religion has such rules for the use of dishonesty as a working tool (and of the small one we have found only a miniscule and pagan one in New Guinea which had something similar).) Remember here that also to steal and loot are dishonesty.

007 DO YOU WONDER WHY ISLAM AND ITS MUSLIMS SO SELDOM USE THE CLAIM: "ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF HONESTY"?

008 One easy to see - or hear - result of all this permitted dishonesty, is all the conspiracy theories you meet from Muslims, and even from the official Islam. They are used to dishonesty and/or not used to be given reliable information, and go looking for hidden motifs or explanations - and often they believe they find something. That what they believe they find, may be wrong to the second and more powers, matters little - they start believing in it and act accordingly. Of the recent more serious - and idiotic - cases, are "Inoculations to eradicate polio is a western conspiracy to make Muslim - or African - girls sterile" - an idea which has cost many African youths their health forever because they got polio. Or from Pakistan: "Iodine in salt is a western conspiracy to make Muslim girls sterile, or at least with reduced ability to become pregnant". In the countryside in North Pakistan at present (Jan. 2013) 40% refuses to use salt with iodine, in spite of that the local food contains too little iodine, resulting literally in hundreds of thousands of persons, often children and youths, being ill from such shortage.

009 Yes, the Quran's and Islam's acceptance of the use of dishonesty as a working tool, has a price also for Muslims.

010 We non-Muslims should remember this aspect of their religion, moral code, and culture - dishonesty is an accepted and integrated part of it. But we also should remember that after all the majority of Muslims are honest - after all Islam also preaches honesty, in spite of accepting dishonesty.

011 But it might be wise to be a little careful with Muslims you do not know, especially if it comes to serious things or serious money - not to mention that terrorist are hiding behind dishonesty (most terrorists today are Muslims - naturally as it also is the only big war religion today).

###### 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 are that kind of men normally? - and how true and reliable are their never proved claims and tales?

012 2/80b: "- - - He (Allah) never breaks a promise - - -". As long as there is not documented one single promise in 1400 years clearly from Allah, it is no wonder if he has broken none. But there also is not one single clearly proved case of Allah keeping a promise. (Guess if Islam had advertised it if it had happened!!)

013 2/176b: “- - - Allah sent down the Book (the Quran*) in truth - - -”. With that many mistakes and other dubious arguments, it at best is partly true. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

014 2/224g: "- - - Allah is one who heareth and knoweth all things". Here it seems to mean that Allah understands what you really meant when you swore an oath, and thus can forgive - against expiation - the not too strongly meant oaths (and even those if there is a reason for breaking them). But oaths also have another side: The humans. How can anyone know when a Muslim is telling the truth and when not, when not even an oath is very serious to break, if he thinks there is a reason for doing so? And how can a Muslim telling the plain truth strengthen his words in order to be believed, when the opposite part knows about al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc., the advices about breaking even oaths if that gives a better result, Muhammad's practicing (and thus permitting all Muslims to do the same) of deceit, etc.?

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya and Kitman can be used at least in these cases (for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal promise):

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence or work permit in a rich country (we have personally seen such cases).)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Advised used if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Advised used if necessary to succeed.)

(Do you understand why Muslims seldom claim that "Islam is the Religion of Honesty"? - actually one correct name for Islam could be "the Religion of Dishonesty" - no other big religion has such rules for the use of dishonesty as a working tool (and of the small one we have found only a miniscule and pagan one in New Guinea which had something similar).) Remember here that also stealing/looting is dishonesty.

But al-Taqiyya is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve. But in the long run: No-one can quite trust a Muslim/Muslims/Islam in serious questions.

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

#########015 2/225a: “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your heart”. If you swear an oath without thinking it over - or not enough over – you are not bound by it. But how are other people to know if the oath you have made is binding for you or not - or if you will break it? Besides; you may break also a more serious oath if that will give a better result, but you may have to pay expiation to Allah for it. See f.x. 2/224e-f above.

016 2/256i: "- - - the most trustworthy hand-hold - - -". Only if Allah exists, if he is a god, if he has sent down the Quran, and if the Quran in addition tells the full and only truth about this.

017 2/256j: "- - - hand-hold, that never breaks - - -". If it does not exist, it does not break.

####018 3/54b: ”- - - and Allah too plotted and planned, and the best of planners is Allah.” This verse in addition is one of the verses the Muslim phenomena al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), and Hilah (the lawful pretending or circumventing - "the dishonesty in disguise") are based on – when Allah can “plot and plan” (indicating using dishonest means) of course his followers can do the same as long as it is not forbidden – which it is not. Also see 2/26h, 2/224e-f, 2/225a, 4/142a, 5/69, 8/30, 10/21b, 13/42, 16/91, 27/50, 66/2, and 86/16 - dishonesty as a policy is one of the fundamental rules in the Quran's moral - or immoral - code. Al-Taqiyya, Kitman, and Hilah are permitted in 8 - 10 wide cases, and advised "if necessary" in 2: To defend and to promote Islam. Worth remembering for Muslims and non-Muslims alike; what is true and what is not true in Muslims' arguments about such things? And how much is true in a religion partly relying on dishonesty? - - - and what then about its claimed prophet, Muhammad? - how much of his words are Kitmans or al-Taqiyyas or deceit, etc.? (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya, Kitman, and Hilah can be used at least in these cases (for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal promise. Also for deceit there are given no real limits. Muhammad said according to f.x. ibn Ishaq, "The life of Muhammad", that "war is deceit" - and according to many Muslims "anything" is war (according to Islam also everything outside Islamic lands are "area of war"):

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence permit in a rich country.)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Advised if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Advised if necessary to succeed.)

But al-Taqiyya, etc. is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve.

But in the long run the surroundings learn that it is impossible quite to trust a Muslim in serious questions: When is he speaking the honest truth and when is he using an al-Taqiyya or some other kind of "lawful" dishonesty? - lawful at least according to the Quran and to the Sharia laws.

DO YOU WONDER WHY ISLAM AND ITS MUSLIMS SO SELDOM USE THE CLAIM "ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF HONESTY"?

019 3/60a: “The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; - - -”. With so many mistaken facts that you find in that book, it can at most be partly true, if this refers to the presumed truths in the Quran. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.) Also see 2/2b above and 13/1g and 40/75 below.

##020 3/76g: "- - - Allah loveth those who act right". How can he in case love the ones who live according to the Quran? - a number of its moral rules are very obviously wrong. The "constitution" for all moral rules is: "Do onto others like you want others do onto you". Compare this to the Islamic (im)moral code - and even a number of its laws, not to mention its rules for behavior in war - and weep. The only ones not able to see the horror in it, are Muslims who have been taught that this is "lawful and good" and "our glorious rights and duties" from they were babies. Read modern religious Islamic literature meant for Muslims, and you still find these medieval and pre-medieval ways of thinking and this upside down moral - or immoral - code. This at the same time as they declare that Islam is the "religion of peace". They should mention that Islam also is the culture and mentality of 630 AD and the "Religion of al-Taqiyya" (the lawful lie) - - - and in reality "the religion of war and suppression"..

021 4/87g: "And whose words can be truer than Allah's?" Allah - al-Lah - was a pagan main god from Arabia made sole god on basis of a book full of mistakes, contradictions, etc., dictated by a man of very doubtful morals - believing f.x. in al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing) and even the breaking of oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the star case 3/54 (if Allah can cheat, cheating is ok - but how much cheating is it then in the Quran? - by Allah or by Muhammad) and on deceit - and a man liking power and riches (at least for bribes - and women), but unable to prove one single of his claims about his god or his connection to a god. Is this a god basis for believing what is said to be the truth? And 100% sure: If the Quran is Allah's words, much of his words are not the truth.

022 4/108c: "- - - Allah doth compass round (= notice and outdo*) all that they do." One of the alibis for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc., deceiving, etc. in Islam - if Allah can outdo bad people, all Muslims have the permission to do the same as long as it is not prohibited - which it is not (the Quran is not teaching an absolute on honesty - even oaths can be broken).

023 4/166e: "- - - enough is Allah for a witness". Only if he exists and in addition is reliable in spite of the Quran's and Islam's points of view concerning al-Taqiyya (lawful lies), Kitman (lawful half-truths), etc., deception ("war is deceit" - and everything is war), broken words/oaths, etc. Not to mention his reliability if he in reality is from the dark forces. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

024 4/174b: “- - - there hath come to you (mankind*) a convincing proof (the Quran*) - - -“. Wrong. With that many mistakes, contradictions, etc., and so much wrong logic, etc., etc. the Quran is not very convincing, and its “proofs”/”signs” are no more convincing - see 2/39b above. Besides as long as it is not proved it came from a god, it proves nothing anyhow.("A proof is one or more proved facts which can give only one conclusion".)

The only thing the Quran can convince a clear brain about, is that the Quran is not from any god. No god would ever deliver, not to mention revere, a book of that quality.

###025 5/89a: “Allah will not call you to account for where is futile in your oaths - - -" = oaths you just throw around - f.x. in anger or from habits, or for oaths you for other reasons did not mean, does not count, and is no sin for Allah. Quite a different from normal religions. Besides: How can others know when you mean an oath and when not? (Well, in some cases you can guess, but what about all the border-line cases and the cases where it sounds like you mean it?) The Quran and Islam are very special when it comes to breaking oaths and some other kinds of dishonesty (f.x. al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth)) - it is the only of the big religions with such rules for accepted dishonesty, and the only of the big religions which accepts dishonesty, even as a part of the religion/religious life.

###026 5/89b: “Allah will not call you to account for where is futile in your oaths, but He will call you to account for your deliberate oaths: (if you break such one*) for expiation, feed 10 indigent persons, on a scale of the average for the food of your families: or clothe them, or give a slave his freedom. If that is beyond your means, fast for three days. That is the expiation for the (breaking of*) oaths ye have sworn. But keep to your oaths.” In principle: Keep your oaths, at least if you meant them. But if you break them, not much is lost, as it is just to pay expiation, and everything is ok. And if the oath was made without thinking things over, you are not even bound to it or bound to pay expiation for it. Guess if this is different from NT! (- and from most other religions included all the big ones!) (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

No other of the big religions has dishonesty as an integrated and accepted part of the religion - also here remember al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc. - and "war is deceit". Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya, Kitman, and Hilah can be used at least in these cases (for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary words and promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal word or promise):

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence permit or work permit in a rich country.)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Advisable if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Advisable if necessary to succeed.)

But al-Taqiyya is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive someone – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve. But in the long run one learns that there is no way to really be sure a Muslim speaks the full truth - or the truth at all - in serious questions. (This also may be a big problem for Muslims telling the truth about something without being believed - they have no reliable way of strengthening their words.)

###027 5/89c: "That is the expiation for the oaths ye (Muslims'*) have sworn (and broken*)". Even though it is advisable to keep your oats, if you break one, it is just to pay expiation, and everything is ok. The Religion of Truth?!? - an ironical joke. "The Religion of Honesty"? - not even a joke (may be that is why you seldom hear this last name seldom and never from Muslims and Islam).

####028 8/30d: “They (non-Muslims*) plot and plan, and Allah too plans; but the best of planners is Allah”. When Allah can make devious and cheating plans, of course his followers also can. This verse is may be the main alibi for the institution of al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and its brothers Kitman (the lawful half-truth), and Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing) - three lawful ways of dishonesty you find in no other of the large religions. Worse: For promoting or defending Islam, they are not only permitted, but advised to use "if necessary". (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

029 8/58b: “If thou fearest (“fearest” not “understandest” or “knowest”*) treachery from any group, throw back (their Covenant) to them, (so as to be) on equal terms: for Allah loveth not the treacherous.” – except Muslims - - - remember Muhammad’s betrayals and his words “War is betrayal” and "War is deceit" (Ibn Ishaq) Also remember al-Taqiyya (the lawful lies), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), Muhammad's use of deceit, and his advice about breaking ones promises, words and oaths if that gave a better result. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

030 9/12f: "- - - for their (non-Muslims*) oaths are nothing to them - - -". Strange words from a man who practiced himself and impressed on his followers that it is better to break an oath if that gave a better result (f.x. 2/225a and 5/89a+b above, and 16/91e and 66/2a below), and who lived by his slogan "war is betrayal" or "war is deceit".

####031 10/21b: “- - - they (people*) take to plotting against our (Allah’s*) Signs! Say: ‘Swifter to plan is Allah!’” (The original - translated from Swedish (omitted in the English 2008 edition) A10/33: "Allah is swifter (than you) making plans"). This is another of the main alibis for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth*), and Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing): When Allah can use devious means like indicated here, of course any Muslim can.

032 11/49d: "- - - neither thou (Muhammad*) nor thy People knew them (the stories Muhammad told)". Wrong for most of them. Most of the stories you find in the Quran are from tales, legends, and fairy tales well known in Arabia at the time of Muhammad - we even know the exact source for many/most of them. Even the Biblical stories mostly are not from the Bible, but from legends, fairy tales and apocryphal (made up) scriptures based on, but often differing a lot from, the Bible. What people may be "knew not" were the twists to make them fit Muhammad's teaching - and perhaps something made up for the occasion once in a seldom while. Also see 11/49a above.

033 13/42a: “- - - but in all things the master planning is Allah’s.” Allah is the one that decides in reality. This is one of the verses Islam and Muslims have founded the rules for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), and Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing) on - the moral alibi and explanation for it. When Allah could device plots, also his followers could and can do so.

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya, Kitman, and Hilah can be used at least in these cases (for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal promise):

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence permit in a rich country.)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Advised if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Advised if necessary to succeed.)

But al-Taqiyya is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve.

In addition there f.x. are the acceptance of use of deceit and betrayal, and not least acceptance and sometimes even the advice to break ones word/promise/oath (2/225a, 5/89a, 16/91b, 66/2a).

You find no acceptance of any of these kinds of dishonesty from Jesus.

034 15/9e: "- - - We will assuredly guard (it (the Quran*) from corruption)". YA1944: "The purity of the text of the Quran through fourteen centuries is a foretaste of the central care with which Allah's Truth is guarded through all ages". Not one word about the troubles because of the incomplete Arab alphabet around 650 AD. Not one word about the many varieties through the centuries - of them 14 canonized + some "lightly canonized". Not one word about changes through the time - documented f.x. by the finding of the "Quran-graveyard" in Yemen in 1972. Do you find it strange that persons used to honesty and to straight scientific ways of thinking sometime feel disrespect and distaste when studying Islamic sources? - And Abdullah Yusuf Ali: "The Meaning of the Holy Quran" is one of Islam’s "flagships" on the intellectual medium level! His sentence here is not only wrong, but dishonest - but then dishonesty (al-Taqiyya, etc.) is advised by Islam to use "if necessary" to defend or promote Islam"

How much more is dishonest in Islam - and in the Quran?

###035 15/14: "Even if We (Allah*) opened out to them a gate from heaven, and they (disbelievers*) were to continue (all day) ascending therein (they would not believe*) - - -". This is one of the places in the Quran where Muhammad explains away the difficult question why he could prove nothing. ######And it is one of the places where he knew the fast-talk was a lie: If there was opened a gate to Heaven, and people knew it led to Heaven, there would have been a run for it, and "seeing is believing", at least in cases like this - and Muhammad was too intelligent and knew too much about people not to know this. The same goes for any intelligent person today - they know this would be the result. Even intelligent, brainwashed Muslims know this deep down. All the same they still use claims like this. Any comments necessary?

036 15/14+15: “- - - They would only say (when experiencing a miracle*): ‘Our eyes have been intoxicated - - -”. Wrong. At least some had come to believe. These two verses are a piece of fast-talk. There is some fast-talking in the Quran - trying to explain away things and facts and ideas and not least questions which are difficult to explain or answer. See the chapter about fast talk in the Quran. And there are even more fast-talk among Muslims today, trying to explain away mistakes, abrogation, changes in Islam around 622, etc., not to mention trying to present Islam as a peaceful religion. Just in this case one tries to explain away questions for proofs for Allah and for Muhammad's connection to a god.

#####But the really bad thing about this point is that it is one of the points where Muhammad himself knew he was lying – at least some would believe in Islam if he produced miracles or could in other ways prove his claims. He was too intelligent and knew too much about people not to know this – this even more so as he himself told about heathens becoming Muslims after they had experienced miracles (f.x. the magicians of Pharaoh), and he also had a good example in Jesus who got many believers from making miracles – some refused to believe no matter, but quite a number of others did after miracles made by Jesus (Jesus made miracles also according to the Quran).

#####037 16/38j: “- - - a promise (binding) on Him (Allah*) - - -". Not least: How binding is a promise for a claimed god who accepts and he himself uses dishonesty (f.x. al-Taqiyya - the lawful lie - and Kitman - the lawful half-truth), deceit ("Allah is the best of 'planners' (our quotation marks - because this verse indicates he uses deceiving plans*)" and "war is deceit"), and even broken words/oaths (according to the Quran - 2/225a, 5/89a+b, 16/91e, 66/2a)?

####038 16/101b: "- - - Allah knows best what He reveals - - -". When revelations are contradicting or there are other errors, it is not Muhammad who has made mistakes, but Allah who in his unfathomable wisdom has chosen to do it like that, so do not question it!.

######039 16/101ba: "When We (Allah*) substitute one revelation for another - - -". Many Muslims claim that abrogation (making points or verses invalid by introducing others with different contents) does not exist in the Quran/Islam (because it proves that Allah was/is not omniscient - he has to try and fail and/or he changes his mind some times, and thus changes his unchangeable Plan). Among others this verse proves they are wrong.

040 17/43b: "He (Allah*) is high above all that they say! - Exalted and Great (beyond measure)!" We may remind you that when you read the Quran, you should read the claims, deeds, etc., not the glorious words. The demands and deeds and introduced rules are reliable - the glorious words are cheap and may be propaganda. Read 1/1a above and see if you agree to this verse.

###041 17/59h “And We (Allah*) refrains from sending the Signs only because the men of former generations treated them as false- - -". But there is an interesting remark in Asad’s note and explanation (A 17/71 -: “His (Muhammad’s*) only miracle was and is the Quran itself”. This is an accepted fact among Muslim scholars and Islamic religious leaders. AND ALL THE SAME THEY CONTINUE AND CONTINUE TO TELL THEIR CONGREGATIONS ABOUT THE (MADE UP) MIRACLES CONNECTED TO MUHAMMAD THAT THE HADITHS TELL ABOUT – AND NOWHERE IN THE HADITH COLLECTIONS DO YOU FIND A WARNING THAT “THE QURAN PROVES THAT THESE MIRACLES ARE MADE UP LEGENDS". An honest religion? Honest “priests”? Honest professors? (These are among the reasons why it is impossible to rely on Islamic literature – you all the time know you have to check the “facts” before you can use the information (or disinformation or wishful thinking)).

Remember this whenever a Muslim will tell you about some of all the miracles they claim Muhammad performed. That he made no miracles at all, also is very clear from the fact that he had to explain away all requests for such ones - if he had made any miracle, he and his followers instead had informed about it loudly and often.

For the sake of record we quote the here relevant a part of M. Asad's comment in full ones more, and now directly from English (on Internet): "In many places (not only here in 17/59*) the Quran stresses the fact that the Prophet Muhammad - - - was not empowered to perform miracles similar to those with which the earlier prophets are said to (and in some cases confirmed in the Quran*) have reinforced (NB: Muhammad claimed it would not reinforce his teaching*) their verbal (also Muhammad's were verbal - only written down afterwards*) messages. His only miracle was and is the Qur'an itself - - -". There has never existed one single Muslim scholar who did not know - and knows today - this. ALL THE SAME THEY HAIL MUHAMMAD'S CLAIMED MIRACLES AS PROOFS FOR HIS GOD AND HIS BEING A PROPHET IN SUCH WAYS THAT THE UNEDUCATED MASSES TO A LARGE DEGREE BELIEVE - YES, ARE SURE - THE MIRACLES IS A REALITY. An honest al-Taqiyya (lawful lie). But if the scholars, imams, ayatollahs lie about this to forward the religion, how much more do they lie about?

Remember here that also prophesies/foretelling are miracles - the ability to see what has not yet happened. It is clearly stated in the Quran that Muhammad also was unable to do this (and thus was no real prophet).

##042 18/11: "Then We (Allah*) drew (a veil) over their ears - - - (so that they heard not) - - -". It takes more than a veil to stop sound and thus hearing - except in fairy tales. (Sorry for being a little sarcastic, but this is a well known, old legend/fairy tale, but Islam and Muslims even today treat it like and pretends it is a true and holy story proving the power of Allah. Well, they have to, because the Quran says the story is true (see 18/13a below), and then it has to be true - if not, something is seriously wrong with the Quran, with Allah, and with Islam, which is a too hard fact to face. And just for the records: This story is not from the Bible.)

043 18/12a: "Then We (Allah*) arouse them (the "7 sleepers"*) in order to test which of the two parts was best at calculating the term of years they had tarried". A peculiar reason - and which 2 parts? (Clear language in the Quran - and a little logical reason for an omniscient god.)

But why did a claimed omniscient and predestining god have to test them?

#044 18/13a: “We (Allah*) relate to thee (Muhammad/Muslims*) their (the 7 sleepers) story in truth: - - -”. No omniscient god related a story like this claiming it to be true, neither to Muhammad, nor to anybody else.

##Actually this is quite a joke: A well known and made up fairy tale is the truth and a proof for Allah and his power!

045 18/13b: “We (Allah*) relate to thee (Muhammad/Muslims*) their (the 7 sleepers) story in truth: - - -”. As this is a well-known fairy tale, and as the Quran has so many other mistakes, carefully said: At best it is only partly the truth. But note that it is stressed that the story is the truth - not an allegory, not made up, but the truth.. A fairy tale = the claimed truth = irony.

046 18/21a: "- - - that they (people*) might know that the promise of Allah is true - - -", Some irony: A well known legend - a made up religious fairy tale about some sleepers, involving another god (Yahweh), is the proof for that Allah's promise is true.

047 19/97b: "So We (Allah*) made the (Quran) easy - - -". Please do remember this each time a Muslim tries to tell you that a mistake in the Quran does not mean what is written, but something entirely different or a parable, which he has to explain for you, because the god was to clumsy expressing himself in his claimed easy to understand book, so that mere humans must help him and explain what he really means when he is talking./p>

##048 20/70a: “So the magician were thrown down to prostration (because Moses had done a real miracle*): they said: ‘We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses (because they had seen the miracle*).” But Muhammad contradicted this effect:

###*Muhammad many times in the Quran explains that the reason for that he/Allah would/will make no miracles, was that it would not make anyone believe anyhow – AND HERE ALL THE MAGICIANS BECAME BELIEVERS BECAUSE OF JUST ONE SMALL MIRACLE. (This is one of the reasons why one knows Muhammad knew he was lying each time he used the excuse that miracles would not make anyone believe anyhow – he had himself here told that miracles worked, and this was as early as ca. 615 - 616 AD, which means he told this before he told most of his claims that miracles would not work. There thus is no doubt that he knew he was lying - but then to be dishonest when defending or promoting Islam is not a sin in Islam - cfr. the rules for al-Taqiyya (lawful lie), etc.)

##########But when he lied about this, how much more did he lie about in the Quran? - not to mention in Hadiths?

(At least 5 contradictions).

049 21/32d: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) turn away from the Signs (of Allah*) which all these things (point to)!" When someone uses logically invalid arguments - like claiming not proved "signs" are indication or proof for a god - the logical reaction is to be skeptical. After all the use of false and/or invalid arguments is the hallmark of the cheat and the swindler, and Muhammad on top of this believed in al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing), in breaking promises and words - even sworn ones - if that gave better results, and in deceit ("War is deceit") and betrayal - - - and he wanted power and riches for bribes for more power - and women (like many false prophets in and outside the Bible, but few of the real ones in the OT. Here beware that men like David and Solomon are not reckoned among prophets in the Bible - they were kings, not prophets. This is one more difference between Muhammad and the Biblical prophets - not one of them had a harem of any size. Even if you include men like Abraham and Jacob, they had maximum 1-2 wives and 1-2 concubines if any at all. Abraham had Sarah, Kethura (1. Mos. 25/1) and Sarah's slave Hagar, Jacob had Leah, Rachel, Bilhah and Zilpath (1. Mos. 35/23-26). Muhammad had 36 we know by name, included his 11 long time wives and 2 concubines/slave women (the 16 short time wives and the 7 where it is unclear if he was married to them or not, and thus if sex was a sin or not - a Muslim is only permitted to have sex with his wives and his slave women - are normally not mentioned by Muslims).

050 21/92b: "- - - I (Allah*) am your (people's*) Lord and Cherisher - - -". Often claimed, never proved. And the claims are from a not reliable man who had much to gain on making people believe this.

###051 27/50: “They (non-Muslims*) plotted and planned, but We (Allah*) too planned - - -.” As said other places: When Allah can deceive, any good Muslim of course can do the same. THIS IS ONE OF THE VERSES WHICH MAKES THE "MORAL" FOUNDATION FOR AL-TAQIYYA (THE LAWFUL LIE), KITMAN (THE LAWFUL HALF-TRUTH), ETC. - WHEN ALLAH COULD DECEIVE, IT OF COURSE WAS/IS MORALLY OK TO DO SO. Muhammad institutionalized it by his points of view on deceit and breaking of even oaths, even though it was formalized only later. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya, Kitman, and Hilah can be used at least in these cases (for deceit and broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary promises and words, as an oath is something stronger than a normal promise or word):

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get work/residence permit in a rich country.)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Compulsory if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Compulsory if necessary to succeed.)

But al-Taqiyya is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve.

052 33/8a: “That (Allah) may question the (custodians (see 33/7 just above*)) of Truth concerning the Truth they (were charged with) - - -”. The Quran says/pretends that the old scriptures of Israel were the same as in the Quran, but that bad Jews distorted them. If that had been true, they at best were charged with bits and pieces of truth - see all mistakes, lofty “explanations” and invalid “signs” and “proofs” in the Quran. (Besides science has proved the Bible - here OT - is not falsified. Islam has proved it even stronger by being unable to find any proved falsification in all the thousands of relevant old manuscripts. There may be some mistakes, but no falsifications.) One more thing: No omniscient god like what Yahweh is according to the Bible, needs to ask about anything which has happened. (It is done some times in the Bible, but for rhetoric reasons.)

053 33/37g: "- - - We (Allah*) joined her (Zaid's wife Zainab*) in marriage to thee (Muhammad*): in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marrying with the wives of their adopted sons (after divorce - widows not mentioned*)". This is perhaps the thinnest excuse we have ever heard for a serious selfish deed.

  1. For one thing: Is this a situation which happens so often that it merits a dramatic demonstration?
  2. For another: Many a doubter would be willing to bet that if Muhammad had not been "hot" on this woman, this old Arab law - forbidden to marry your adopted son's former wife - had existed today.
  3. For a third and the main point: A verse from Allah had had JUST the same effect.

Hypocrisy.

###054 33/37i: "And Allah's command must be fulfilled". In this case pure hypocrisy. And this may be a main reason for many Muslims' bad feeling about this story - the hypocrisy is too obvious.

055 33/38a: "There can be no difficulty to the Prophet in what Allah has indicated him to do (here: To marry Zaid's wife Zainab)". Anyone able to believe Muhammad married her because it was a duty, are permitted to do so - but it will tell a lot about their brain. Also see 33/37i just above.

056 33/38d: "- - - what Allah has indicated to him (Muhammad*) as a duty (to marry Zaynab*) - - -". More too easy to see hypocrisy. See 33/37g+i above.

####057 47/4c: This is a really serious one: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; at length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them) - - -.” BUT OUR SOURCES TELL THAT THE WORDS “(in fight)” IS NOT WRITTEN IN THE ARAB TEXT – IT IS ADDED BY THE TRANSLATOR (and by more than one). Muslims primarily shall read the Quran in Arab, and there, in case our sources are correct, ######the text is: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers, smite at their necks - - -“. It in case simply is a permanent order to be aggressive.

The real religion of peace. And of honesty.

058 47/15e: "- - - promised (by Allah*) - - -". There is the black fact that till now - 1403 (this was written in 2013 AD) years after Muhammad started his mission - there never was a proved case of Allah keeping a promise.

#059 47/24a: "Do they (non-Muslims) not then earnestly seek to understand the Quran - - -". When we started to read the Quran, it was from an honest wish to understand - you do not understand a culture, unless you understand their religion. But we found kilometers of mistaken facts and other errors and even direct dishonesty and lies. What we now very honestly do not understand, is how it is possible for at least educated people to read the Quran and not see that something is hugely and seriously wrong - no omniscient god makes mistakes, and if the Quran is not from a god, what then is Islam??! And where will Muslims end if there is a next life?

#####060 47/31d: This verse - and quite a number of others - does not give meaning if Allah is omniscient and knows everything. If he is omniscient, he also knows everything about you. Not to mention if he on top of all predestines everything, so that you just are a puppet in a puppet theatre reacting to his Plan only.

But if this is Muhammad needing an explanation for why he sends warriors out to steal and enslave and enlarge his power, then suddenly tales like these are logical - if his followers were naive enough or blind enough.

061 51/5b: “(The Quran/Allah/Muhammad swears by 51/1 to 51/4 that) Verily what ye (Muslims*) are promised (in the Quran*) is true - - -“. With that many mistakes, etc. – and even obvious lies – in that book, also this oath hardly is true. Remember that in Islam oaths can be broken if that gives a better result - at most you have to pay expiation to Allah for the broken oath (2/225a, 5/89a+b). It at least will need solid proofs.

####062 51/47c: “- - - it is We (Allah*) Who created the vastness of space.” Here is a point which should be checked: According to one of our sources, the word which is used in Arab is “samaa” which is said to mean “sky”, whereas the Arab word for “universe” or “space” is said to be “al-kawn”. We have till now been unable to check this for sure, but mention it because such dishonesty tells so very much about Islam, and about in Islam about honesty regarding Islam and Muslims even today if it is true, and our source is quite reliable – whereas we find half truths or cases of al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) too often in Islamic media/books (though we had originally not expected it from a man like Yusuf Ali). Our source also is strengthened by the fact that Muhammad Asad (A51/30) admits that the literal meaning of the Arab texts is "the sky" - see 51/47d just below - so it seems to be true that the translation of the Quran here is falsified.

Sources we reckon to be reliable, also ###say that the Arab word for universe in the modern meaning, (al-kawn) is not at all used in the entire Quran. Also see 51/47d just below.)

063 51/47d: (A57/30): "Literal meaning "the sky" or "the heaven", which often in the Quran has the connotation of "universe (see 51/47c)" or in the plural ("the heavens"), of "cosmic systems". This is dishonesty as such words used in the modern meaning of those words, did not exist at that time in any relevant language included in Arab - a typical al-Taqiyya (lawful lie) or at best a Kitman (lawful half-truth) like the ones you find too many of in Muslim religious literature, trying to adjust the Quran to modern knowledge or twist facts or words to pretend that here the Quran is foretelling modern knowledge. (F.x. Muhammad Asad in connection to this verse and also to 21/30 claims that the Quran here foretells the expanding universe (see 51/47c), etc. The claim is so far out that we do not bother to comment on it).

NB:#######: Here it is not Muhammad who is lying in the Quran, though, but Muslim scholars. (There are a number of points in the Quran, where the translators have "adjusted" the texts in small ways like this, this even in the work of a top translator like A. Yusuf Ali - and what the about less honest translators (Muhammad Ali after all is not too bad on this point).)

064 51/56a: “I (Allah*) have only created jinns - - -". But are jinns really created? They have never ever provably manifested themselves in any way, and they after all just are beings borrowed from old Arab folklore, fairy tales, and pagan religion, and were not to be found other places than in and around Arabia - an Arabism.

It is a reason for thinking that Muhammad uses jinns as a proof for the existence of Allah, as the only places they are proved to "exist", are in old folklore, fairy tales, and old pagan religion. They also according to science of religion are a special kind of beings (the word often is translated with "spirits", but spirits are pure mental beings, whereas jinns are made from smoke, and thus at least partly physical) which on in the old times only found in and around Arabia. A strange choice for a god for all the world, a pretty natural choice for Muhammad, who took most of his tales in the Quran from his surroundings, and mostly without checking if they were true. (With a rich wife it f.x. had not been too difficult for him to get hold of a Bible, or at least a copy of the old Jewish scriptures and check what that book really said. But he did not bother - to claim that the Bible was falsified, was easier.

###065 54/40a: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” Anyone wanting to try to “explain” away difficult points like mistakes or invalid logic or contradictions by calling them allegories etc. should read this sentence. It even is written 4 times and thus a solidly cemented and nailed truth: The Quran is to be understood literally and search for hidden meanings is only for Allah, and such search only is for the ones “in whose hearts is perversity - - -.” . This is mentioned many places in the Quran.

Also see the chapter "Literal language in the Quran - according to the Quran" in "1000+ Comments on the Quran".

There is no doubt whatsoever about that the Quran itself means that the Quran is to be understood literally mainly. And that to look for hidden meanings are wrong. Remind any Muslim trying to “explain” away problems by pretending or claiming they are allegories, about this fact.

066 57/7b: "Believe in Allah and his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Why should any sentient being do so when so much is wrong - and even some lies - in their message, the Quran?

067 59/23f: "- - - (Allah is*) the Source of Peace (and Perfection) - - -". Just read the some 22 - 24 surahs from Medina, and you see the unintended black joke hidden in this claim - and the in double meaning literally bloody irony in this al-Taqiyya (lawful lie - a specialty you only find in Islam of the big religions).

This surah is from Medina, and late enough for that Muhammad had started his raids, robbing, and killing (624-625 AD). Muhammad knew he was lying when he said this - armed robbery, armed raids, etc. definitely is no "Source of Pace" - the only thing these words were, were dishonesty and hypocrisy.

#####068 66/2a: "Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths (in some cases)- - -". According to other places in the Quran, the cases when you can break your oat without sinning, are:

  1. Oaths you have given without really meaning them.
  2. Oaths where you later see you will get a more satisfactory result if you break your oat. In serious cases, though, you should pay a "fine" - expiation - to Allah to be forgiven".

Can anyone please tell us what remains of trustworthiness of a Muslim's words and oaths - especially when you add to this the al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and the Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc., and permitted betrayals? - and his point of view that "war is deceit" (and everything is war) + his view on disusing words/promises/oaths. And much worse in this case: WHAT REMAINS OF MUHAMMAD'S TRUSTWORTHINESS - NOT TO MENTION THE QURAN'S TRUSTWORTHINESS?

##069 66/2b: "Allah has already ordained for you, (O men), the dissolution of your oaths (in some cases)- - -". According to other places in the Quran, the cases when you can break your oat without sinning, are:

  1. Oaths you have given without really meaning them.
  2. Oaths where you later see you will get a more satisfactory result if you break your oat. In serious cases, though, you should pay a "fine" - expiation - to Allah to be forgiven".

One of the at least 200% proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and Jesus not in any line morally connected to Muhammad. NT tells you not to swear at all ( f.x. Matt. 5/34), and if you do it all the same, you have to keep your word.

##070 68/39b: "- - - Covenant with Us (Allah*) on oath - - -". What is really an oath worth in Islam and for Muslims, as oaths can be broken - pay expiation if necessary? (2/225, 5/89, 16/61, 66/2).

071 70/28a: "For their (Muslims'*) Lord's (Allah's*) displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity". In more plain language: Allah likes peace and tranquillity, and dislikes - or punishes with - the opposite. BUT NB: This was in 621-622 in Mecca, before Muhammad started to gain power and started first as a leader of highway-men and then as a warlord, and Allah discovered he liked war and blood and riches and power. In the 13 years in Mecca, Islam was a rather peaceful religion. But during the first part of the 10 years in Medina, it turned into a religion of war, and this verse lost its meaning - at least as long as Muslims were the perpetrators and non-Muslims the victims.

Muhammad in Medina proves that this quote is dishonesty.

Also the fact that the highest possible service to Allah - and Muhammad - is to take part in raids and wars, proves that something is seriously dishonest. As this is said before (614-617 AD) Muhammad changed his religion to a thieving, suppression, and war religion in Medina in 622 - 624 AD, Muhammad may have meant what he said in Mecca that time. But there is no way around the he knew that either his first claim (that Allah = peace and tranquility) or his later claim (Allah loves robbing, strife, and blood) is a lie, and a lie in the Quran (actually more than one of these kinds).

072 85/1+4: "By the sky - - - Woe to the Makers of the pit (of fire) - - -". Sentences in the Quran starting with ”by” normally are oaths - the Quran/Muhammad is swearing by something. But whenever Muhammad or the Quran swears - or in other ways promises - remember that according to the rules for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc., it is permitted to lie to defend and to forward Islam (and for 6 - 8 other topics), and that according to Muhammad's own words and deeds in the Quran, oaths should be broken if that will give a more satisfying result - if the breach is grave you may pay expiation to Allah afterwards. (For some reason or other Islam and its Muslims seldom claim that Islam is the religion of honesty.)

####073 86/16:## "And I (Allah*) am planning a scheme". This is one of the verses behind the dishonesty in Islam - al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth) - not to mention "war is deceit" and "break your oath if that will give a better result" - and pay expiation in bad cases. (f.x. 2/225a (thoughtless oaths),5/89a+b (expiation for deliberate oaths), 16/91e (oaths are not a problem less you confirm them, then you should not break them (expiation is necessary in case)), 66/2a (the dissolution of your oaths (the translator has added "in some cases"), and the star case in 3/54 - If Allah can deceive, there of course is nothing immoral in doing so if there is a reason. And this view on deceit existed in Islam at least as early as in 614 AD when this surah is dated. Also see 2/26h, 4/142a, 8/30, 10/21b, 13/42a, and 27/50 above.

Just for the record: Al-Taqiyya and Kitman can be used at least in these cases (for broken oaths there are given no real limitations if the broken oath will give a better result. By implication this also goes for ordinary promises, as an oath is something stronger than a normal promise):

  1. To save your or others' health or life.
  2. To get out of a tight spot or a dangerous problem.
  3. To make peace in a family.
  4. When it will give a better result than honesty or honoring one’s oath.
  5. To cheat women (should be remembered by girls with Muslim boyfriends wanting sex - or wanting a marriage to get residence permit in a rich country.)
  6. To deceive opponents/enemies.
  7. To betray enemies.
  8. To secure one’s money (very clear from Hadiths).
  9. To defend Islam. (Ought to be used if necessary to succeed.)
  10. To promote Islam. (Ought to be used if necessary to succeed - should be remembered by proselytes.)

But al-Taqiyya is a double-edged sword: In the short run you may cheat and deceive some ones – actually also in the long run if the opposite part does not know about this side of Muslims and of Islam, or if he/she is naïve.

074 91/1-7: "By - - -". A sentence in the Quran starting with "by" normally is an oath - here it seems that the Quran swears that the verses 9 and 10 are true. But whenever Muhammad or the Quran swears - or in other ways promises - remember that according to the rules for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), etc., it is permitted to lie to defend and to forward Islam (and for 6 - 8 other wide topics, including for saving your money and for cheating women), and that according to Muhammad's own words and deeds in the Quran, even oaths should be broken if that will give a more satisfying result - pay expiation to Allah for it if necessary (f.x. 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?) - clearly contradicted by the Bible.

075 91/2a: "By the Moon - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the moon - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title).

076 91/3: "By the Day - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the day - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title).

077 91/5b: "By the Firmament - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the firmament - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title).

078 91/6b: "By the Earth - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the Earth - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title).

079 91/7b: "By the Soul - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the soul - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title.

080 92/1a: "By the Night - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the night - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the indications proofs in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed 2-12messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title).

Also: Especially the NT very clearly states that you shall not swear at all (Matt 5/34), and it is clear that if you do so all the same, you have to honor your oath, whereas in the Quran you can break any oath if that gives a better result - pay expiation if necessary (but to be fair: The Quran advises not to break a confirmed oath (!) if there is not a good reason. To break other oaths matters little.) This last part is a very clear proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - and for that Jesus and Muhammad were not in the same religion - as the moral codes are too deeply different.

081 92/4a: "By (the mystery of) - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by a mystery - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran.

083 93/1-2: "By - - -". A sentence in the Quran starting with "by" normally is an oath - here it seems that the Quran swears that verse 3 is true. But whenever Muhammad or the Quran swears - or in other ways promises - remember that according to the rules for al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie) and Kitman (the lawful half-truth), it is permitted to lie to defend and to forward Islam (and for 6 - 8 other wide topics), and that according to Muhammad's own words and deeds in the Quran, even oaths should be broken if that will give a more satisfying result - pay expiation to Allah afterwards if necessary.

084 93/2: "And by the Night - - -". Muhammad/Allah swearing by the night - sentences in the Quran starting with "by" normally are oaths in the Quran. One of the clear indications in the Quran for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and for that Jesus and Muhammad are not in the same line of prophets like the Quran likes to claim (in addition to that Muhammad was no real prophet - he "did not see the unseen" so he was unable to make prophesies (even though some Muslims try to claim the opposite in contradiction to what the Quran says itself), and a "prophet" unable to make prophesies, is no real prophet - - - but it is an impressive and imposing title to "borrow" - many a self proclaimed messenger from one or more gods have "borrowed" this title).

(Some oaths are not binding at all, and others only if you confirm them afterwards, but if you break a confirmed oath you should pay expiation afterwards, at least if the oath is about something serious).
