Allah in the Quran, Chapter 103

 

Chapter 103

ALLAH'S HELPLESS EXPLANATIONS NEED EXPLANATION?

 

001 A standard way for Islam and for Muslims to "explain" away errors, contradictions, etc. in the Quran, is to claim that what the texts say, are not the real meanings. "In reality" the book and its text mean something different - a hidden meaning (an allegory, a parable, or something). These claims are not correct - as you see below, the Quran and Allah - and Muhammad - very strongly and in many different ways stress that the texts are to be understood literally and like they directly say.

002 Besides: What human being can explain better - and better understand what a god really means - than the god himself? Few omniscient gods explaining things carefully and plainly, need help from humans to express what they "really" mean. This is so obvious, that such claims from Islam or Muslims only can be called dishonesty.

*003 2/2a: “This is the Book (the Quran*); in it is guidance sure - - -". As you will see, there are a lot of mistaken facts, contradictions, and unproved arguments, etc. in the Quran. This means that the guidance is far from sure. Perhaps worse: No god would use a book of that quality for his "holy book" - he had to know that sooner or later the errors, etc. would be discovered and tell that things were very wrong.

004 2/118e: “We (Allah*) have indeed made clear the Signs unto any people who hold firmly to Faith - - -.” There simply are no valid clear signs – proofs – for Allah anywhere in the Quran or anywhere else. See 2/99a, 2/99b and 2/99c above.

BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE CLEAR = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

###005 3/7c: “- - - in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they (all the verses that are to be understood literally*) are the foundation of the Book”: There is no doubt that the Quran is meant to be understood literally where nothing else is specified. Also see 3/7b just above and 11/1b below.

We also want to add a little more about this verse, as the addition is essential in some of all the places Islam/Muslims try to “explain” away statements, etc., that obviously are not true, by saying they are allegories:

There are some scattered verses said to be allegories or similar, and which are explained the meanings of. As the meanings are explained, these must be understood as included in “verses basic or fundamental”.

There are no clear allegories, where the meaning is not obvious or explained. There are a number of verses where the meaning is difficult or impossible to see. But unclear speech does not mean an allegory – an allegory is a (clear) story which means something else. Unclear speech only is indistinct or unclear speech.

###006 3/7d: ”- - - no one knows its hidden meaning except Allah”. In any text – even in Donald Duck – it is possible to find – or make up - hidden meanings. But this is strongly advised against in this verse (3/7): Only Allah is qualified to do that:”- - - no one knows its hidden meaning except Allah”. And who is better to know just that than Allah? – the maker of the book (?) - and the one revering the presumed "Mother Book" in Allah's home, a book which the Quran is claimed to be a copy of(without proofs as normal for Islam)?

But all the same a standard explanation used by Islam to “explain” any mistake or contradiction which is difficult to explain, is that it must not be understood literally, but allegorically. As soon as f.x. science shows that something in the Quran is wrong, that text switches from being “basic and fundamental – of established meaning”, to becoming an allegory. This in spite of Allah's and in spite of the Quran's clear words. It is one of the three most frequently used last ditch ways Islam and Muslims use to try to “explain” away things that cannot be explained. (The other ones are: “You cannot take the meaning from just one point or a few verse – you have to judge from the whole surah (or the whole Quran)", and: "You are just a Muslim hater or Israel lover and what facts you tell consequently are invalid and of no interest"). This in spite of that they themselves happily and with glee quotes and often even twists words far out of context to favor Islam (f.x. “There is (wrongly quoted) no compulsion in religion”) or to discredit any other religion). But 3/7 proves that to make up hidden meanings behind the words – f.x. changing its meaning to be allegorical where an allegory is not indicated – is wrong and strongly against Allah’s wish and order: It is the work of “those in whose hearts is perversity”.

Similar in 6/114c-d, 11/1b, 16/103f, 18/1d-g, 18/1-2, 18/2a-b, 19/97b, 27/1b, 28/2, 41/3a-d, 43/2a-b, 44/2a-b, 44/58b-e, 54/17a, 54/32a-b, 54/40a below.

####007 3/7e: “He (Allah*) Who has sent down to thee the Book (the Quran*): in it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) (= to be read literally*); they (the verses to be read literally*) are the foundation of the Book (the Quran*): others are allegorical (there are a number of allegorical or similar verses in the Quran - they either are easy to see are allegorical, or the meaning is explained, or both*). But those in whose hearts is perversity (,*) follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking disorder, for its hidden meaning (= only bad persons seek the hidden meanings - also from the allegories*), but no one knows the hidden meanings except Allah (= the possibly hidden meanings are not for humans*)”.

In clear text: The Quran is to be read literary if nothing else is said or indicated - hidden meanings are for Allah, and trying to find hidden meanings are done by perverts. This is very essential for Muslims to remember when they are tempted to explain away mistakes and blunders as allegories with hidden meanings ever so often. There is no hidden meaning unless it is indicated this verse says, and only the bad humans looks for such hidden meanings.

The Quran and Islam for one thing claim that the clear and easy language is a proof for that the book is made by a god, and for another that the perfect language is a proof for the existence of Allah (no such proofs exist, so they try to find some). And not least that the book and its perfect language is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated - that the language is "clear and easy" and that only those "in whose hearts are perversity" go looking for hidden meanings - hidden meanings "it only is for Allah to understand".

On this background: What does the mistakes, etc. and the unclear language prove?

008 3/7f: "Those firmly grounded in knowledge - - -". See 26/83a below.

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

009 3/138a: "Here is a plain statement to men - - -". The interesting point concerning a statement like this, is not if it is plain, but if it is true. How can one without any proof rely on a statement built on nothing but loose words, and made by a very doubtful man - and made in a book full of mistakes, etc.?

But this statement also has relevance for all the claims Muslims make about all the points in the Quran they claim are not wrong - which the literal meaning is in those cases - but analogies. The Quran itself contradicts such claims by stating several laces that the text is plain and easy to understand.

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

More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what are parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

######That the Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran is clear, explained by Allah, and to be understood literally, you find f.x. these places: 3/7b, 3/138a, 6/114ca, 11/1b, 15/1d, 18/1d-e, 18/2a, 19/97b, 20/113b+c, 24/34, 24/54j, 26/2a, 27/1b-d, 28/2, 36/69e, 37/117c, 39/28b, 41/3da, 43/2a, 43/3c, 43/29b, 44/2b-c, 44/13d, 44/58b, 54/17a, 54/22b, 54/32a+b, 54/40a, 65/11f, and 75/19 Worth remembering each time a Muslim or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the text means something different from what it says. In such cases either the Muslim/Islam lies when he/she claims the text means something different from what it says (the claim often is that it is a parable or something), or the Quran lies when it says that the book uses clear texts where nothing else is indicated.

The listed points are all collected here under 3/7b and 44/58b. And there are more outside that list.

Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to explain what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims lying under such "explanations".)

BUT ALSO: THE MESSAGE/QURAN IS PLAIN = EASY TO UNDERSTAND. WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

010 4/26c: "Allah doth wish to make clear to you (by means of the Quran*) - - -". No book so full of mistakes and unclear points makes much clear to anybody.

BUT THE MOST CENTRAL POINT HERE IS JUST THIS THAT THE QURAN CONFIRMS THAT THINGS ACCORDING TO THE QURAN ARE EXPLAINED IN DETAIL = TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY. THIS DOCUMENTS THAT WHEN ISLAM AND MUSLIMS CLAIM THAT ERRORS, CONTRADICTIONS, ETC. AND OTHER BAD POINTS DO NOT MEAN WHAT THE TEXTS SAY, BUT ARE ALLEGORIES OR SOMETHING, SUCH CLAIMS AND EXPLAINING AWAY ARE WRONG. BESIDES: WHO CAN EXPLAIN BETTER THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

###############011 10/20d: "The Unseen is only for Allah to know - - -". This is another proof in the Quran for that Muhammad was no real prophet: Muhammad was unable to see the future - that only Allah is able to it says here - and he thus was unable to make prophesies = no prophet. (We remind you that the original title of a prophet was "a seer" - one able to see the unseen (f.x. 1. Sam. 9/9).

####012 11/1b: “(This (the Quran*) is a Book, with verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning) - - -.” In plain words: The verses are in plain language and are to be understood literally where otherwise is not clearly said – in “basic and fundamental” words. But all the same Muslims try explaining away anything which is wrong in the Quran and which they do not find “explanations” for, with that it "this is not to be understood literally – it must be allegories", etc. It is one of their three "last" – and often used - lines of defense” when errors in the Quran cannot be explained or explained away. (The other two are: “You cannot deduce anything from one or a few verses which looks wrong – the Quran (or the surah) must be understood as a whole”. And the really “low prose” one: “You are lying or making up things because you are an Islam-hater or are listening to Islam-haters” – this no matter how correctly you are quoting the Quran or the Hadiths or whatever.) Also see 3/7b+c above and 19/97, 26/2, 27/1, 28/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/17, 54/32 .

A very essential point to remember when Muslims try to claim clear mistakes are allegories or similar. They often do. And Muslims trying to flee from indications or proofs in the Quran for that things are seriously wrong in the religion of Muhammad, might remember that the only main person they in case cheat, is oneself.

###### More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something.

Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to explain what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims lying under such "explanations".)

WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

013 11/1c: "- - - (verses*) - - - further explained in detail - - -". The problem only is that too many of the "explanations" are wrong or logically invalid. A 100% proof for that no god is behind those "explanations" and thus the book.

But who can explain better than a god? What then does it prove when Muslims very often have to "explain" what the claimed god "really means"? WHAT PERHAPS IS THE MOST ESSENTIAL POINT HERE, IS THAT THE QURAN ITSELF MEANS THAT EVERYTHING IS EXPLAINED IN DETAIL, AND THUS THAT IT IS TO BE UNDERSTOOD LITERALLY LIKE IT IS TOLD AND EXPLAINED. THIS PROVES THAT ISLAM'S AND MUSLIMS' CLAIMS THAT ERRORS AND OTHER NO-GOOD POINTS ARE ALLEGORIES, ETC. ARE WRONG.

014 12/111d: “- - - a detailed exposition of all things - - -“. Wrong. There are many things necessary for normal life – not to mention modern life – that is not made clear, and even more so for details. F.x. the Muslim laws on inheritance were far from clear in the Quran, and in many, many things Islam have no guiding lines from Allah – they have to extrapolate from other or similar things said or done in the Quran or in Hadiths.

#### BUT A VERY ESSENTIAL POINT HERE IS THAT MUHAMMAD CLAIMS THE QURAN IS "A DETAILED EXPOSITION OF ALL THINGS". HOW THEN CAN MUSLIMS FOR ONE THING CLAIM THAT ALLAH OFTEN DOES NOT MEAN WHAT HE SAYS (WHEN THEY WANT TO EXPLAIN AWAY ERRORS, ETC.)? AND HOW CAN THEY FOR ANOTHER THING CLAIM THEY ARE ABLE TO EXPLAIN "WHAT HE REALLY MEANS" AFTER HE HAS EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL? - ARE THEY BETTER AT EXPLAINING THINGS AND BETTER AT KNOWING WHAT ALLAH HIMSELF IN HIS CLUMSINESS IS UNABLE TO SAY AND EXPLAIN?

015 13/2l: “- - - (Allah*) explaining the Signs in detail - - -“. Wrong and/or logically invalid “explanations” in reality are not explanations at all – even if they were in detail, which they in many cases are not. But it tells a lot that Islam and Muslims in spite of declarations like this from Allah, uses claims about difficult to understand language and difficult to understand explanations and stories, as a reason for why they have to explain what Allah in his bumbling and inapt helplessness has been unable to explain in a way people understand. But then of course Muslim believers, imams, etc. are more intelligent and knowledgeable than Allah, and thus better able to give correct and understandable stories and explanations.

BUT THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND THE FOR ISLAM MOST DESTROYING FACT HERE IS THAT THE QURAN/ALLAH TELLS THAT EVERYTHING IS EXPLAINED IN DETAIL - AND REMEMBER THAT SIMILAR IS SAID SEVERAL PLACES IN THE QURAN. THIS FOR ONE THING MEANS THAT ALLAH MEANS EXACTLY WHAT HE SAYS IN THE QURAN - HE HAS EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL. WHICH MEANS THAT ALL TRIES FROM ISLAM TO EXPLAIN AWAY ERRORS, ETC. BY CLAIMS THAT "ALLAH MEANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT HE SAID", "THIS IS AN ALLEGORY, AND REALLY MEANS SOMETHING ELSE", ETC., ALL SUCH CLAIMS ARE KILLED AND DEAD - ALLAH EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL, AND THUS CORRECT. AND FOR ANOTHER: IF ALLAH EXPLAINED EVERYTHING EXACTLY AND IN DETAIL, WHAT HUMAN BEING IS ABLE TO EXPLAIN IT BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY THAN A GOD? - AND WHAT HUMAN BEING KNOWS BETTER THAN A GOD WHAT THE GOD "REALLY" MEANT AND THUS CAN CORRECT THE GOD'S DETAILED EXPLANATION?

#########On the background of that Allah several places in the Quran tells that he explains everything in detail, all claims from Islam and Muslims that he "in reality means something else" are invalid al-Taqiyyas (lawful lies) if the Quran is reliable.

######## The fact also is that such claims (that the Quran means something different from what the text says) are an insult to any god - and corruption and falsification of the texts in the Quran.

016 14/4b: "- - - in order to make things clear - - -". A book where too many things are unclear or even wrong like in the Quran cannot make things clear - clearly demonstrated by all the mistakes, etc. Muslims believe in even today.

017 15/1d: “- - - a Quran that makes things clear.” With that many mistakes, etc., and often with diffuse text, it makes few things clear and some things very unclear - f.x. what is the foundation Islam rests on (see 15/1d)?

But there is absolutely no doubt that the Quran means the book tells and explains everything exactly and clearly = everything is to be understood like it is told or explained (= literally) if nothing else is indicated.

More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what is parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

018 16/89g: “- - - the Book (the Quran*) explaining all things, - - -”. Except that some of the explanations and many of the facts obviously are wrong. And except that many things are not explained.

BUT THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND THE FOR ISLAM MOST DESTROYING FACT HERE IS THAT THE QURAN/ALLAH TELLS THAT EVERYTHING IS EXPLAINED - AND REMEMBER THAT SIMILAR IS SAID SEVERAL PLACES IN THE QURAN. THIS FOR ONE THING MEANS THAT ALLAH MEANS EXACTLY WHAT HE SAYS IN THE QURAN - HE HAS EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN DETAIL. WHICH MEANS THAT ALL TRIES FROM ISLAM TO EXPLAIN AWAY ERRORS, ETC.

019 16/103f: “- - - this (the Quran*) is in Arabic, pure and clear”. Wrong in many ways: There are alien words, there are orthographical mistakes, there are grammatical errors and there are lots and lots of places where even today Islam does not know the exact meaning of words or verses (the last partly because the book originally was written by means of an unfinished alphabet - no short vowels, no diacritical points (points used to signify some letters)).

But interesting here is that the book claims its teats are pure and clear. How then can Muslims claim that the texts are unclear many places, so that

*020 17/12h: “- - - all things have We (Allah*) explained in detail”. Wrong. A lot of things are not explained in detail - f.x. Muslim laws have had to be supplemented with many more paragraphs than the ones in the Quran and in Hadith - and still Muslim law are far from perfect concerning modern life and societies, and even concerning daily life. And just? - A man telling that a woman has behaved indecently is lying to Allah according to Allah and the Quran, if he cannot produce 4 witnesses, THIS EVEN IF HE SPEAKS THE FULL TRUTH, AND THE OMNISCIENT ALLAH OF COURSE KNOWS THIS. And much worse: A raped woman is to be severely punished if she cannot produce 4 MEN to witness that it really was rape - normally absolutely impossible. (For one thing rape normally happens in hidden places, and for another: How many men will come forth to tell: “We saw that she was raped, but did not try to help her” - and then be strictly punished for that omission? Those two points in the Quran are the most horribly unjust and inhuman paragraphs we have ever seen or heard about in any civilized(?) law. Is sharia civilized? Is Allah good or/and just? Judge for yourself. For similar claims see 15/1 -16/89 – 24/34 – 26/2 – 27/1 – 36/69 - 43/2 – 44/2.

021 17/41a: "We (Allah*) have explained (things) in various (ways) in this Quran - - - but it only increases their (non-Muslims) flight (from the Truth)!" Sometimes explanations make also mistakes more obvious and easy to see.

But it is worth noticing that Allah here says he has explained things. Thus when Islam/Muslims tell that Allah in many cases means something different from what he says in the Quran (in order to explain away mistakes or other dark points), this means that they claim Allah is not good at explaining, and that clever Muslims have to tell "what Allah really meant", as they are better at explaining and at understanding what he "really" tried to say, than Allah himself. This in spite of that Allah some places not only says he has explained things, but explained all things in detail.

It takes something to be better than a god at knowing what really is meant and at explaining. Muslims must have a high IQ.

#####022 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 mere humans must help him and explain what he really means when he is talking./p>

023 20/113d: "- - - explained in detail (in the Quran*) some of the warnings - - -". This is worth remembering: It claims to explain some of the warnings. Most Muslims - and other texts in the Quran - claims the book explains everything in detail. This even though it is not even naivety to believe that such an after all small book can explain everything, not to mention in detail. This even more so as only parts of the book is used for explaining, and on top of that many of the "explanations" are invalid or wrong.

More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what are parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

024 24/34b: “- - - verses making things clear (the Quran*) - - -”. A book with this many mistakes do not make many things clear. At least not correctly - often the opposite.

025 24/54j: "- - - preach the clear (message)". It is not possible to preach a clear message from a book with so many mistakes, so much unclear language, so many contradictions, etc. See f.x. the impossible contradiction between Allah's claimed total predestination (necessary for getting many warriors for Muhammad) and the claim that man all the same has free will (necessary for Allah's moral right to punish bad ones who f.x. did not want to go to war for Muhammad).

But it is very clear that the Quran means its message is clear and easy = to be understood literally. Only when the message has an obvious and easy to understand meaning, it is clear.

###026 26/2a: “These are verses of the Book that makes (things) clear.” In other words: Told and explained in clear words. But all the same Muslims as a last way out, explains – and in religious blindness often honestly believe – that errors are not errors, but are camouflaging hidden meanings or allegories. In addition there are some hundred points in the book where the exact meaning is unclear - either literally unclear or there are two or more possible meanings, often varying wildly (some places because the meaning has been expressed unclear, other places because the Arab alphabet was not complete when the Quran was written down - the vowels and the points used in Arab to signify some letters were not yet existing - and the reader has to guess these, and then there are many cases where the meaning varies according to what letters you guess are meant. To take an English sample: If you have the consonants h and s and know they represent a word, this word may be "has" or "his" or "house" or "hose").

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

More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what is parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

###027 27/1b: “- - - a Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -”. The more mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, unclear language, etc. there are in a book, the less clear it can make things. It also simply looses credibility. The Quran in many cases simply is incredible – literally speaking. f.x. unbelievably may points with wrong facts or contradictions - in strong spite of its and Muslims' claims about it being a perfect book from a god. Remember this every time a Muslim tries to tell you that you cannot understand the Quran unless so-and-so, or that the "real" meaning of a text is not what it says, but is hidden in an allegory.

For lay people the claims may not be conscious dishonesty - they often/mostly honestly believe what they claim about this, though partly because of wishful thinking. For the ones with higher religious education, the reality may be a different one, even though wishful thinking may have an effect on them, too.

WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

Wrong is wrong and dishonesty is dishonesty also on this point. At least for leaders leading followers in such a serious case as the future possible everlasting life in Heaven or Hell, also giving in to his (in Islam religious leaders nearly always are men) wishful thinking often opposing his rational knowledge and then agitating on such a basis, is both moral and real dishonesty.

*033 39/28b: “(It is) a Quran in Arabic, without any crookedness - - -”. Without crookedness? With all the mistakes?!! With all those contradictions?! With all the invalid “signs” and “proofs”? With all the loose claims and statements? Such facts normally are the very hallmarks of crookedness.

#####On the other hand: This means that the texts should be understood just like they are written - no crookedness in the meaning. This is one of the points worth remembering each time Muslims or Islam tries to "explain" away errors, etc. by claiming the texts means something different from what it says.

######That the Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran is clear, explained by Allah, and to be understood literally, you find f.x. these places: 3/b, 3/138a, 11/1b, 15/1b, 17/1, 18/2a, 19/97, 20/113, 24/34, 24/54, 26/2, 27/1, 28/2, 36/69e,37/117, 39/28b, 41/3, 44/58, 54/17, 54/32, 54/40, and 745/19.

Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to explain what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims behind such "explanations".)

Another point: This surah is from 615-617 AD. There is a possibility for that Muhammad at that time believed there was no crookedness behind his teaching at that time. But long before 632 AD it is very clear that there were at least some "crooked" points in the texts - some of the wrong points there is no chance Muhammad did not know about (f.x. that nobody would believe even if they got real proofs for Allah) - and Muhammad did not correct points like this for it, also not in this verse. #####At least this was and is dishonesty.

##034 43/2b: “- - - the Book that makes things clear - - -”. But a book with perhaps 3000+ mistakes makes few things clear. See also 40/75 + 41/12 above and 43/3a below.

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.

####035 43/3c: "We (Allah*) have made it a Quran in Arabic, that ye may be able to understand - - -". It is clear that Allah has done everything to make the Quran plain and easy to understand - he even made the Quran in the local language and in texts they would be able to understand. And who can make a text easier to understand correctly than an omniscient god? - not to mention when it is written in the local language to make it impossible not to understand exactly what was said and meant. Worth remembering each time Muslims tries to explain away mistakes with that the text does not mean what it says, but something else or something hidden. Also see 43/2a and 43/2b above.

036 43/29b: “- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) making things clear.” No messenger preaching what is in the Quran or similar, makes things clear – too many mistakes and too much unclear logic, unclear texts, etc.

########But more essential just here is that the Quran tells/means that Muhammad's words/the Quran makes things clear. This means that according to the Quran its words and explanations are clear and literal and to the point. In other words: The Quran here tells that its texts are clear and to be understood like what is said = literally - not hidden meanings you have to search for, and if you find them hope you guess the meaning correctly. The Quran several places tells this: Its texts are clear and to be understood literally if nothing else is said. Remember this every time Muslims try to flee from errors or difficult points in the Quran by claiming the texts do not mean what they say, but are parables or something.

*037 44/2c: “- - - the Book (the Quran*) that makes things clear - - -”. A book with this many mistakes and dubious arguments, etc. - see 40/75 and 41/12 - dictated by a man with a dubious character - see f.x. 31/30 - does not really make things clear.

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. 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 - - -.” Similar is mentioned at least these places: 3/7, 11/1b, 19/97, 26/2, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/17, 54/22, 54/32, and 54/40.

038 44/13d: "- - - a Messenger (Muhammad*) explaining things clearly - - -". There is no doubt Muhammad meant he/the Quran explained things clearly - a fact to be remembered each time Muslims try to explain away mistakes in the Quran by claiming it is not clear text, but parables or something.

But all the same a very central point here is that the Quran itself means that Muhammad explained things clearly. This indicates that also his most central explanations - the ones in the Quran - are meant to be very clear, which again indicate that the texts are meant to be literal if nothing else is said of indicated.

######More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something.

In such cases either the Muslim/Islam lies when he/she claims the text means something different from what it says (the claim often is that it is a parable or something), or the Quran lies when it says that the book uses clear texts where nothing else is indicated.

WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?

And: TO CLAIM THAT THE QURAN TELLS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE TEXTS REALLY SAY, IS TO FALCIFY THE BOOK.

####040 44/58c: “Verily, We (Allah*) have made this (Quran) easy, in thy (Muhammad’s or Arabs') tongue - - -". There is no doubt that the Quran itself and Muhammad/(Allah?) mean that the Quran is easy and with clear texts. All the same one of the main ways for Islam and Muslims to "explain" away errors, wrong facts, etc. is to claim that the "real" meaning is something hidden - - - in spite of that the Quran another place says that to search for hidden meanings just is for the sick of heart, and that where there all the same are hidden meanings, they only are for Allah to understand.

#041 54/17a: “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 and there are a number of similar sentences in the Quran, so that there is no doubt Muhammad really meant it. It even is written 4 times just in this small chapter 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 - - -.” .

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

More down to the Earth: Muslims often explains away mistakes, etc. in the Quran with the claim that what is written there is not what is meant - it is a parable or an allegory or something. A book where you have to guess what is literally meant and what is parables - and what the parables in case mean - definitely is not easy.

042 54/17b: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -.” It clearly is in plain words which are easy to understand – and the allegories mostly explained or easy to understand. But no! - according to Islam and to many Muslims – much of it is allegories, parables, etc. with very hidden or different meanings - - - at least if that is the only way Muslims can “explain” away errors or mistakes. Also see 3/7 and 11/1 above. ALSO SEE 54/17a JUST ABOVE.

043 54/22a: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran - - -". Wrong - no god was involved in a book of a quality like the Quran with all its errors, contradictions, etc. And as no god made it, also no god made it easy - or difficult - to understand.

***044 54/22b: “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, parables, 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 at least these places: 3/7, 3/138, 11/1b, 15/1 18/2, 19/97, 20/113, 24/34, 24/54, 26/2, 27/1, 28/2, 36/69, 37/117, 41/3, 43/2, 44/2, 44/58, 54/17, 54/22, 54/32, 54/40, and 75/19.

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

And if the texts in the Quran is to be understood literally, like the book itself in different words clearly states many places, the errors, etc. prove that either the book is not from any god, or that god is far from omniscient - very far.

045 54/32a: “And We (Allah*) have indeed made the Quran easy to understand - - -”. This in a way is very correct – the language is plain and simple though often unclear or with two or more possible meanings, and the Quran itself makes it clear that one is to understand it literally (though many Muslims claim that verses with mistakes are allegories, parables, etc. – it is an easy way to use to flee from difficult questions).

The statement that it is easy to understand, also means that it is to be understood like it is written - if not it was not "easy to understand".

Or perhaps Allah is so clumsy and helpless when he explains things, that he needs help from humans to explain what "he really means"? (Nonsense to say the least about such claims lying under such "explanations".)

############How reliable is a religion which accepts the use of dishonesty, deceit, etc. (f.x. al-Taqiyya, Kitman, Hilah, "war is deceit", and even disuse of oaths (2/225, 5/89, 16/91, 66/2 - and the stare 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)) in its teaching?

####046 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 - - -.” .

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.

###047 75/19: "- - - it is for Us (Allah*) to explain it (the Quran - this refers to 75/16*) (and make it clear) - - -". A very clear and not to be misunderstood message. And all the same as soon as a Muslim sees that the clear text Allah has explained and made clear, is wrong, he claims Allah has been unable to express what he really meant; the meaning is something different - an allegory or something - and he - a mere human - has to help Allah by explaining what he "really" meant. This is one of Muslims' and Islam's 3 - 4 - 5 most used ways out when explaining away mistakes, contradictions, etc. in the Quran, when they do not have real arguments.
