Muhammad in the Quran, Vol. 2: Chapter 43
15 Dec. 2015
GUIDANCE FROM ALLAH VIA MUHAMMAD
According to Muhammad, to the Quran, to Islam, and to most Muslims, most of the information and "information" and guidance in the Quran are from Allah, told via Muhammad. (But as there are so many mistaken facts, other errors, contradictions, etc. in the book, they prove the Quran is from no god. Then who made the Quran?)
As for the wrong facts, contradictions, etc., also see our Book A: 1000+ Mistakes in the Quran.
¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤
*001 2/2ab: “This is the Book (the Quran*); in it is guidance sure - - -". Contradicting the Bible: The fundamental thoughts, ethics and morality are too different - at most one of those two books can be sure guidance.
Actually there are very many and deep differences between the Bible - especially NT - and the Quran, when you combine it with the fact that both science and even stronger Islam (because they have searched more intensely and for hundreds of years) have proved that in spite of Muhammad's never proved claims the Bible is not falsified. There exists some 300 copies of the Gospels, some 12ooo scriptures or fragments from the Bible, and some 32-33ooo scriptures or fragments which contains quotes or references to the Bible (beware that the numbers may vary some form one source to another, f.x. because the age of some papers are not 100% sure), And there is found not one single proved falsification - some minor mistakes, something which is normal when books are copied by hand, but not one proved falsification. The best proof for this is that if even one had been found, Islam had had a worldwide celebration - - - and there never was such a celebration. Islam and Muslims have made many claims, but found not one proved case.
These deep and many differences proves f.x. that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and that Jesus and Muhammad were not in the same religion (not to mention not in the same line of prophets).
002 2/5a: "They (the believers*) are on (true) guidance - - -”. With so many mistaken facts, the guidance at best is partly true.
003 2/5b: "They (the believers*) are on (true) guidance - - -”. Contradicting the Bible. The teachings - especially in NT - are fundamentally so different that the Quran cannot be a true guide if the NT is a true guide.
004 2/5d: "They (the believers*) are on (true) guidance (the Quran*) from their Lord (Allah*) - - -". Wrong - no god has ever sent down a book with so many errors.
*005 2/16a: “These are they who have bartered guidance for error - - -”. = Non-Muslims. Proof is needed, especially as “guidance” refers to the Quran - - - a book with lots of mistakes. The added irony is that if the Quran is a made up book - and with all its errors it at least is not from any god - it is the Muslims who are in a brutal error. Also see 2/99f, 8/55b and 57/27f below.
006 2/38b: "- - - guidance from Me (Allah*) - - -". This cannot be a reference to the Quran if the god was omniscient - no god uses a book with so much wrong contents as a guidebook. See 7/192a and 16/107 below.
007 2/53f: "- - - guided aright". If the Quran here had referred to the Biblical texts, perhaps this had been correct. But the Quran always refer to claims about something similar to the Quran itself, which it claims the bad Jews and Christians have falsified to get the Bible - never a proof, only lots of claims (which science - and even more so Islam - has proved wrong).
008 2/70b: "- - - guidance - - -". The Quran claims that Moses got similar instructions/books like Muhammad (= a Quran) - but there is little reliable guidance in a book full of mistakes, etc. like the Quran.
009 2/121b: "Those to whom We (Allah*) have sent the Book (the Quran*) - - -". No god has sent a book this full of mistakes, contradiction, invalid logic, etc.
010 2/121c: "Those to whom We (Allah*) have sent the Book (the Quran*) study it as it should be studied, they are the ones that believe therein - - -". Correct - - - but the religion only is true if it really is sent down by a god - see 2/121a.
011 2/143m: "- - - guided by Allah (the Quran*) - - -". As the Quran is from no god - too much is wrong - thus its guidance(?) is not from a god.
012 2/213j: “Allah by His Grace guided - - -". If the Quran is not from Allah, it is not Allah who does the guiding.
013 2/258g: "Nor doth Allah give guidance (via the Quran*) to - - -". As the Quran is not from a god - too many errors, etc. - in spite of strong claims (but only claims) from Muhammad and others, the "guidance" via the Quran is not from Allah.
014 3/20g: "- - - right guidance - - -". Strongly contradicted by the much different teaching and moral rules, etc. in the Bible - especially in NT. Also see 67/9c below - a strong one. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But as we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
015 3/30d: "But Allah cautions (via the Quran*) you (to remember) Himself". As no god has sent down a book of a quality like the Quran, it is not Allah who cautions about this.
016 3/73d: "- - - the Guidance (the Quran*) of Allah - - -". No god has had anything to do with the Quran - too much is wrong in it, so much that it is heresy, slander, and an insult to blame it on a god, not to mention an omniscient god. Islam at least has to prove both Allah's existence, and that he in case is a god - not f.x. a caricature of an existing god or not simply something from the dark forces. Also see 2/2b above.
017 3/138c: "Here (in the Quran*) is - - - a guidance and instruction to those who fear Allah". And a central instruction is: "Wage war for Allah and for Muhammad".
018 4/105e: "- - - as guided by Allah (= the Quran*) - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107 below.
019 4/168e: "- - - guide - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107 below.
020 5/15-16: "- - - a perspicuous Book, Wherewith Allah guideth - - -". No god guides by means of a book full of mistakes - and no good and benevolent god uses a book which in addition has partly immoral and unjust moral code and laws, and neither does a good and benevolent god launch a war, hate and suppression religion like in the Quran.
021 5/104j: "- - - guidance - - -". See 7/182a and 16/107 below.
022 6/35f: "- - - true guidance - - -". There is no true guidance in a book as full of mistakes, etc. as the Quran.
023 6/71e: "- - - guidance from Allah - - -" = the teachings of Muhammad. But a teaching based on a book with that much wrong, is no real guidance.
024 6/82f: "- - - (right) guidance (the Quran*) - - -". Too much is wrong in the Quran to give right guidance.
025 6/117c: "- - - His (Allah's*) guidance (the Quran*)." There is no divine guidance in a book full of mistakes. Also see 7/192a and 16/107 below.
026 6/149d: "- - - if it had been His Will He could indeed have guided you”. A guide using the Quran with all its errors as a guide-book is not much of a guide.
027 7/30a: "Some (persons*) He (Allah*) hath guided (by means of the Quran) - - -". See 16/107 below.
028 7/43b: "- - - Allah, who has guided (via the Quran') us (Muslims*) - - -". No god based his religion on a book full of mistakes, etc. And if the Quran is not from Allah, it does not represent his guidance.
029 7/178e: "- - - His (Allah's*) guidance (the Quran*) - - -". As no book with so many mistakes, contradictions, cases of invalid logic, etc. is from any god, this is not any god's guidance - included Allah if he exists and is a god.
030 9/24g: "- - - guides - - -". See 16/107 below.
031 9/80d: "- - - Allah guideth not (by the Quran*) - - -". There is not much reliable guidance in a guidebook full of mistakes, etc.
032 10/9d: "- - -(Allah*) will guide them (Muslims*) - - -". There is not much guidance in a guidebook as full of mistakes as the Quran is.
033 14/21d: "- - - the guidance (the Quran*) of Allah* - - -". Little guidance in a crooked guidebook.
034 16/9c: "- - - He (Allah*) could have guided all of you (man*)." Not with a guide-book like the Quran - not to the Heaven of a benevolent, goodhearted god.
As essential just here: The "fact" that most people he did not guide, but let end in Hell according to the Quran, in case proves that he far from is a good and moral and benevolent god.
035 16/9d: "- - - He (Allah*) could have guided all of you (man*)." If this had been true, what would it tell about the good and benevolent god that he let and lets millions of humans and jinns end in Hell each year, just because he will not guide them? - Not to mention if all that is a result of his predestination!?
036 16/36f: "- - - Allah guided - - -". This only is possible if Allah existed. And as he was no god if he was behind the Quran with all its errors: What was he in case, and in what direction did he in case guide them? - this question is especially urgent and interesting if he belonged to the dark forces and just cheated Muhammad.
037 16/96b: "- - - what is with Allah will endure." There is nothing with Allah if he does not exist (and what is with him if he belongs to the dark forces, is an open question) - he is no god if he is behind the Quran and all its errors, etc.
038 16/102g: “- - - revelations from thy Lord (Allah*) in Truth (a claim, not a proved fact*)- - -”. It also is not the truth that the Quran is from a god - too much is wrong in that book.
039 19/76a: "- - - Allah doth advance in guidance those who seek guidance - - -". The old fact: Not possible unless Allah exists and in addition is a god.
040 20/123b: "- - - whosoever follows My (Allah's*) Guidance, will not lose his way, nor fall in misery". As the Quran is not Allah's guidance (if he exists) (as no god would ever be involved in a book with a miserable quality like the Quran (with the possible exception of the polished language)), this does not concern the Quran.
041 21/107: “We (Allah*) sent thee (Muhammad*) not, but for a Mercy for all creatures.” Muhammad was not much of a mercy to the world – read the surahs from Medina. Neither was he a mercy for all Muslims – read the surahs from Medina + the verses about women, law, slavery, not to mention the to a large part inhuman ethical and moral codes. This verse is contradicted and often “killed” by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).
042 22/24b: "- - - guided - - -". See 2/2b and 16/107 above.
043 22/37e: "- - - His (Allah's*) Guidance (the Quran*) - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107b above.
044 22/49d: "- - - Clear Warning - - -". How clear is a warning when it is mixed up with lots and more of mistakes, contradictions, etc.?
045 22/54h: “- - - Allah is the Guide of those who believe - - -". Allah cannot be the guide of anyone, unless he exists and is a god. Well, he can be a guide even if he belongs to the dark forces (or simply is a mental pagan and manmade idol), but what kind of a guide?
046 22/54h: “- - - Allah is the Guide of those who believe - - -". Allah cannot be the guide of anyone, unless he exists and is a god. Well, he can be a guide even if he belongs to the dark forces (or simply is a mental pagan and manmade idol), but what kind of a guide?
047 23/27c: "- - - Our (Allah's*) guidance - - -". According to the Bible the involved god was Yahweh, not Allah.
048 25/31d: "- - - guide - - -". No guide is reliable if he relies on a guidebook full of errors. Also see 2/2b above.
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
049 27/1d: “These are verses of the Quran – a book that makes (things) clear.” No matter, points like 27/1a, 27/1b and 27/1c make it clear that the Quran means the Quran is using a clear language. Which is essential, as many Muslims try to explain away mistakes with that Allah is a clumsy god unable to say exactly what he means, so "we" intelligent humans must explain what he really wanted to say, or that he did not mean what he said, but an allegory. To be blunt: This is the problem with clumsy gods - we humans must explain and find the words and the obvious explanations or meanings they were unable to express themselves.
Two much used standard ways for Islam and Muslims to try to explain away mistakes, etc.
But these claims from Islam and Muslims that they have to "explain (away)" what Allah "really" means in the texts in the Quran, among other things tell:
######That the Quran tells - directly or indirectly, but clearly - that the texts in the Quran are unreliable or at least unclear.
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 is in error when it 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, 15/1b, 17/12h, 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, 44/29b, 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.
Well, 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 JUST HERE THE ESSENTIAL POINT IS: THERE IS NOT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT THAT THE QURAN ITSELF MEANS IT MAKES THINGS CLEAR = EXPLAINS THINGS IN WAYS EASY AND CLEAR TO UNDERSTAND = LITERAL AND NOT IN HIDDEN WAYS. THIS MEANS THAT MUSLIMS EXPLAINING AWAY MISTAKES AND OTHER DARK POINTS BY CLAIMING THAT THE QURAN AT "THAT" OR "THOSE" POINTS ARE USING NOT EXPLAINED OR OBVIOUS PARABLES, ALLEGORIES, ETC. = USING HIDDEN MEANINGS - EITHER ARE WRONG OR ARE TELLING THAT THE QURAN LIES ALL THE PLACES THE BOOK SAYS IT IS USING WORDS CLEAR AND EASY - LITERAL - TO UNDERSTAND.
WELL, IT IS OK FOR US IF MUSLIMS DIRECTLY AND UNMISTAKINGLY TELL - AND TELL REPEATEDLY LIKE THEY OFTEN DO TODAY - THAT THE QURAN LIES EVEN AT SUCH CENTRAL POINTS AND WHEN USING SUCH CLEAR AND UNMISTAKEABLE STATEMENTS.
WHO CAN EXPLAIN SOMETHING BETTER AND MORE CORRECTLY AND COMPLETELY AND CLEARLY THAN AN OMNISCIENT GOD?
NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!! NB!!!
050 27/2a: “A Guide (the Quran*)”. See 7/192a, 16/107b, and 27/1b+d above. A good guide?
p>051 28/50c: "- - - guidance from Allah (the Quran and Muhammad*) - - -". There is not much reliable guidance in a guide-book full of mistakes. And what about a guide believing in al-Taqiyya (the lawful lie), Kitman (the lawful half-truth), Hilah (the lawful pretending/circumventing) deception ("war is deceit" - and everything is jihad), and breaking his word/promise/oath?
052 28/86b: "And thou (Muhammad/Muslims*) hadst not expected that the Book (the Quran*) would be sent to thee except as a Mercy from thy Lord (Allah*) - - -". No book like the Quran is sent from a god - or revered by him in his "home" - too many mistakes, etc.
053 29/69c: "- - - We (Allah*) will certainly guide - - -". Anyone using the Quran as a guidebook, is not a reliable guide - too much is wrong, and for religious guidance: A book with so many errors is not from a god.
054 31/5c: "- - - (true) guidance (the Quran*) - - -". There is not much true guidance in a book full of errors and of partly immoral moral and ethics.
055 31/5d: "- - - (true) guidance (the Quran*) from their (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*) - - -". No book with that much wrong is from a god.
056 32/3h: "- - - in order that they (people*) may receive guidance (from the Quran*)". No-one receives real guidance from a book full of mistakes, etc.
057 32/13d: "- - - true guidance - - -". See 2/2b and 7/192a above and 16/107b above.
###058 33/21a: “Ye (Muslims*) have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the final Day - - -“. Wrong. Thieving/robbing, dishonesty, womanizing, raping, lying, betraying, extorting, suppressing, murdering, hate mongering, war mongering, mass murder, raids for robbing and killing, and wars of aggression – that is no “beautiful pattern” according to any human moral or ethical philosophy, except in some war religions, included Islam. It tells volumes about Islam that this man is their greatest hero and shining idol. The claim is strongly contradicted by the realities in his teachings and his life, based on Islamic historical sources.
But it is worth remembering that Islam uses the same glorious words about Muhammad and all his deeds and "undeeds" today, like the ones Muhammad here used about himself. It tells something about Islam and about some Muslims - especially about the leaders and the scholars who really know the Quran and Muhammad.
059 33/47c: "- - - they (good Muslims*) shall have from Allah a very great Bounty". You find similar claims here and there in the Quran, not one of them is documented or in other ways proved fulfilled. Many claims, but not one proved case.
060 34/24g: "- - - guidance (here indicated the Quran*) - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107b above.
061 36/11g: "- - - a Reward most generous". Paradise. Also see 10/9f above.
062 38/8e: "- - - My (Allah's*) (own) Message!" If the Quran is Allah's message, Allah is far from omniscient - if he exists.
063 39/18b: "Those who listen to the Word (the Quran*), and follow the (best) meaning in it: those are the ones whom Allah has guided - - -". Yes - but only if the Quran is from Allah, and no god ever made a book with so many mistakes, contradictions, etc.
#But: If the Quran is totally clear and nothing is to misunderstand, like Islam claims, how than can its texts be understood in different ways - different meanings (here specified; in the best meaning of it)?
064 39/23g: "- - - the guidance of Allah - - -". See 7/192a above.
065 40/28l: "- - - guide - - -". You at least cannot be a good guide with a guide-book as full of mistakes as the Quran.
066 41/8a: "For those who believe and work deeds of righteousness are a reward that will never fail". True only if Allah exists, if he in addition is a major god, and if the Quran in addition has made no mistakes when describing him.
067 42/13k: "Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself - - -". The old fact: Possible - possible - only if he exists and is something supernatural.
068 42/13m: "- - - (Allah*) guides - - -". Not possible by means of a book with so much wrong and immoral moral like in the Quran - that is to say: It is possible, but where does then the "trip" end?
069 42/52h: “- - - We (Allah*) have made the (Quran) a Light - - -”. A book with may be 3ooo mistakes, contradictions, invalid statements, “signs”, “proofs”, invalid logic, etc. is not much of a light.
070 42/52i: "- - - wherewith (the Quran*) We (Allah*) guide - - -". There is not much guidance in a book as full of errors, etc. like the Quran - no god would use it for a guidebook. Perhaps dark forces would do so, but we think there are too many mistakes, etc. even for a devil - he had to know he would be found out sooner or later and loose credence. But maybe if the god permitted only such a miserable book so that it should be possible for humans to see through the trap?
071 43/27b: "- - - He (Allah*) will certainly guide me (Abraham*) - - -". Allah could guide nobody unless he existed and was something supernatural.
072 43/27e: "- - - guide - - -". True guiding is impossible if the guidebook is something similar to the Quran with all its errors, etc.
073 43/44a: “The (Quran) is indeed the message, for thee (Muhammad*) and for thy people - - -". Definitely not – too much is wrong. Or if it after all is a message – from whom?
074 48/2e: "- - - (Allah will*) guide thee (Muhammad*) - - -". If Allah guided Muhammad, Allah for one thing is not omniscient - too many mistakes, etc. in his guidebook. For another he was not clairvoyant, which he should be if he was like described in the Quran - he had to abrogate many points of his teaching, and also changed it radically from rather peaceful to one of war, hate and central elements of dishonesty around and after 622 - 624 AD. For a third he was no good and benevolent god - much of what Muhammad did, was from inhuman to real horror. And finally: Allah in case is a god of terror and war.
075 48/7a: "For to Allah belong the Forces of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which tells that it belong to Yahweh, not to Allah. Also see 13/1g and 67/9c - 2 strong ones. But of course it is ok for Islam to prove - prove - the Bible wrong and the Quran right. But like we say: Prove, not just loose claims and as loose and invalid words like the Quran always use instead of proofs.
076 48/28c: “It is He (Allah*) Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad*) with Guidance - - -”. There is not much guidance in a teaching based on a book with that many mistakes and littered with hallmarks of a cheat and deceiver (loose statements and invalid “signs” and “proofs”).
077 53/23d: "- - - there has already come to them (people/non-Muslims*) Guidance from their Lord (Allah*)". Wrong. No omniscient, benevolent god ever sent guidance like pretended given in the Quran.
078 53/23e: "- - - Guidance - - -". See 7/192a and 16/107 above.
079 57/9g: "- - - He (Allah*) may lead you (by means of the Quran*) from the depths of Darkness into the light". No book with that much wrong and with such a large part of its moral code immoral and brutal, can lead anyone into real light - especially as f.x. all the mistakes prove that the texts are not from any god.
080 77/41d: "- - - (cool) shades and springs (of water)". The Arab desert dwelling nomads` dream of a paradise - far from f.x. the Inuit's or Samoyed's or for that case the North Europeans' or the original inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego's dream about nice sunshine and not too much rain and water. All the "Arabism" makes Allah seem to be a god for desert Arabs mainly.
Also remember that the many and deep differences between Yahweh’s Paradise and the one of Allah, are one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.
081 88/22a: “Thou (Muhammad*) art not to manage (men’s) (religious*) affairs - - -.” One more verse that was abrogated of the more powerful Muhammad – or Allah – later. This verse is contradicted and often “killed” by at least these verses: 2/191, 2/193, 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 4/90, 5/33, 5/72, 5/73, 8/12, 8/38-39 (the warning), 8/39, 8/60, 9/3, 9/5, 9/14, 9/23, 9/29, 9/33, 9/73, 9/123, 25/36, 25/52, 33/61, 33/73, 35/36, 47/4, 66/9. This includes many advising or permitting political, social, economical, etc. compulsion (with the sword in the background if you protest) – we mention a few here: 3/28, 3/85, 3/148, 4/81, 5/72, 5/73, 9/23, 14/7, 15/3, 33/73, 35/36. They are all quoted under 2/256. (At least 29 contradictions).
082 92/12b: "Verily, We (Allah*) takes upon Ourselves to guide - - -". Not much worth with a guidebook as full of mistakes, etc. and with a partly immoral moral code like the Quran. Besides: Is it a verity? - a verity in a book full of wrongs?
083 93/7: "- - - He (Allah/the Quran*) gave thee (Muslim*) guidance". Wrong - there is not much guidance in a book full of mistakes, etc.
**084 96/11: “- - - if he (a man*) is on (the road of) Guidance?” Is there guidance in a book with more than 1700+ points with mistaken facts, at least 200+ likely mistaken facts, more than 100 linguistic mistakes in the Arab edition according to linguists, lots of loose statements and lots of invalid “signs” and “proofs” - the hallmark of cheaters and deceivers? Not to mention 400+ contradictions, 100+ abrogations and 300+ cases of unclear language in the Quran – the claimed lack of which is Islam’s only strongly claimed (but never proved) proof for divine origin of the book!! - No; no real guidance. No evidence and no good guidance. Similar claims in 28/49 – 34/6 – 45/20 – 32/5 and a number of other places.
