Muhammad in the Quran, Vol. 3: Chapter 48


 

OBEY MUHAMMAD

According to Muhammad Allah is the boss. But as Allah was far away, one had to obey his claimed representative on Earth, Muhammad. The strange thing is that many a self proclaimed "prophet" have said similar things about themselves - it is very nice for a dictator if his followers believe in such claims.

It is a stronger version of Muhammad's standard mantra for his platform of power.

Jesus said "follow me". Muhammad said "obey me". There are worlds between those two expressions and between the moral codes behind them. One of the many proofs for that Jesus and Muhammad were not in the same religion, not to mention not in the same line of prophets. One of the strong proofs.

¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤

001 3/32b: "Obey Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*)". Muhammad's standard mantra in a strengthened version - Muhammad is gluing himself to the god, plus demanding obedience (on Earth obeying Allah = obeying Muhammad). There are many, many like this in the Quran. Religion is a solid and trustworthy platform of power for its "prophet" normally - in any sect and religion.

002 3/132a: "And obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra for gluing himself to his platform of power, Allah.

003 3/132b: "And obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Contradicted by the Bible - especially NT contradicts any war religion. 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./p>

004 4/13ca: "- - - those who obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) will be admitted (to Paradise*) - - -". Strongly contradicted by the Bible, and especially by NT. Muhammad's and his Quran's religion of war and partly immoral moral code, etc. does not qualify for Yahweh's Paradise, and NT's religion of love hardly qualifies for the Paradise of the war religion of the Quran - on of the proofs for that Yahweh and Allah is not the same god.

005 4/42b: "On that day those who reject Faith and disobey the Messenger (will be strictly punished)". A seldom used, but strong version of Muhammad's mantras to glue himself to his platform of power - his god. Do not disobey Muhammad!

006 4/46e: "We hear and we obey". This was the slogan Muhammad idolized for his followers. And who did they in case obey here on this Earth? - Muhammad.

007 4/46f: "(If the Jews only had obeyed Allah/Muhammad*) it had been better for them, and more proper - - -". Only if Islam is a real religion based on a real god, and only if in addition Yahweh does not exist.

008 4/59b: "Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -." This is one of Muhammad's standard mantras to glue himself to Allah and his platform of power - here in a strengthened version - doubly nice as "Obey Allah" on Earth = obey Muhammad. An interesting and often repeated order from Allah(?) - at least interesting for a man who obviously liked power (and respect).

009 4/59e: "Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger (Muhammad*), and those charged with authority among you." A clear order from the god: Obey the authorities.

010 4/64a: "We sent not a Messenger (included Muhammad*) but to be obeyed - - -". Obey Muhammad! - no comment. Well, one: Jesus - and many other Biblical prophets - said "follow me", not "obey me". There is a fundamental difference here. But "obey me" gives more power.

011 4/64b: "We sent not a Messenger but to be obeyed - - -". Jesus was sent not to be obeyed, but to be followed - and Jesus according to the Bible - was not just a messenger boy, but at least a prophet. Quite different holy or "holy" books the Bible and the Quran.

012 4/69a: "All who obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad*) (are liked by Allah*)". Double plus for Muhammad: Glue him to Allah + obey him. Strengthening the platform of power. An extra point here - like many other places in the Quran - is that here on Earth the one they had to obey, was Muhammad, a nice situation for any leader wanting power.

####013 4/80a: "He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah - - -". It is not possible to express Muhammad's mantra more directly than this. The ultimate dictator with ultimate power.

##014 4/80b: "He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad*), obeys Allah - - -". If Muslims insists on that Yahweh = Allah, this is one more very strong proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god. The ones obeying Muhammad, definitely and all too often did not obey Yahweh's and Jesus' laws and moral codes. Definitely!

015 4/81aa: "Obedience". One of Muhammad's strongest demands. Normal for eastern potentates/dictators.

016 4/115a: "If anyone contends with the Messenger (Muhammad*) even after guidance has been plainly conveyed to him (he ends in Hell*)". Disagree with Muhammad and you end in Hell! The perfect commandment for the total dictator.

017 5/7c: "We (Muslims*) hear and we obey". As the only one they could hear was Muhammad, the one they in reality could hear and obey, was Muhammad. Well and good if the Quran were 100% true and if everything Muhammad said in addition to the Quran were also 100% true. If not, the position of the leader, robber baron and later warlord Muhammad was extremely comfortable.

018 5/92a: "Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". The mantra of Muhammad, here in a strong form - and a form very practical for a warlord (surah 5 is from 632 AD and he is not just a robber baron any more, but a warlord.) Obey Muhammad!

For a comparison: Jesus said: "Follow me", which is a long way from "Obey me".

019 5/120a: This verse in reality is a repetition of one of Muhammad's mantras: Be good and obedient - also to Muhammad - and Allah will reward you. Be bad and disobedient - also to Muhammad - and Allah will punish you.

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

020 8/1h: "- - - obey Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". A nice order for Muhammad, because here on Earth that in reality meant "obey Muhammad - completely (as he represent the god)".

For comparison: Jesus said "Follow me". There is an ocean between "Follow me" and Obey me".

021 8/1i: "- - - obey Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) - - - if ye do believe". You were not a good Muslim and believer unless you obey Allah and Muhammad - which here on Earth just meant Muhammad.

022 8/20c: "Obey Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*) - - -". Perhaps the for Muhammad best version of his main slogan gluing him to his god and his platform of power.

023 8/24c: “Oh ye who believe! Give your response to Allah and His Prophet (Muhammad*), when He calleth you to that which will give you life - - -.” To follow the call for war, will give you a beautiful next life – - - and Muhammad a cheap and committed warrior.

024 8/46a: "And obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Likely the most valuable version of this mantra Muhammad often used in the Quran, if his wish was to make his followers obey himself. MANY other "prophets" have said and done similar things for that reason.

A nice order for Muhammad, because here on Earth that in reality meant "obey Muhammad - completely (as he represent the god)".

For comparison: Jesus said "Follow me". There is an ocean between "Follow me" and Obey me".

025 9/71e: "- - - obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his platform of power, his god.

026 24/48a: "When they (Muslims*) are summoned to come to Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". In reality always to Muhammad. But by connecting the two names, the summon became much stronger.

027 24/51a: "The answer of the Believers, when summoned to Allah and His Messenger (= always to Muhammad in praxis*) - - - is no other than this: they say, 'We hear and we obey'". Muhammad demanded absolute power over his followers. (Strongly contradicting his claims saying he demanded nothing from them.)

This verse tells very much about Islam, and especially so as the Quran itself by means of all its mistakes, contradictions, invalid logic, etc. proves it is not from a god. Is the Quran just a powerful tool for a ruthless dictator? - or perhaps for dark forces? Also see 24/51b just below.

###028 24/51b: "The answer of the Believers, when summoned to Allah and His Messenger (= always to Muhammad in reality*) - - - is no other than this: they say, 'We hear and we obey'" = "der Fürer denkt für uns". This represents a mentality that does not only chill your spine, but makes it freeze. It took Europe and the West 300 years, long and hard mental and cultural strife, and several wars, included 2 world wars to get rid of this mentality. We do not need to have it introduced once more. And especially not on behalf of the leaders of a religion where central parts are seriously wrong. Also see 24/51a just above.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran.

###029 24/51h: "We (Muslims*) hear and we obey". "Der Fürer denkt für uns" (German for "the leader thinks for us") - not for nothing Islam has been compared to Nazism and Fascism by top intellectuals (f.x. Carl Gustav Young).

030 24/51i: "It is such as these (who say "We hear and we obey"*) that will attain felicity". No comments.

031 24/52a: "It is such who obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - - that will win (in the end)". See 24/51a and 24/51b above. The serious point is that there is a reasonable chance that they will succeed - because of ruthlessness, dishonesty, terror, strong discipline, perseverance, etc.

032 24/54a: "Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger (Muhammad - in real life always Muhammad*) - - -". See 24/48b and also see 24/51a and 24/51b above. A strengthened version of Muhammad’s standard mantra for gluing himself to his god and thus to his platform of power.

033 24/54c: "Obey - - -". One of the main duties for the Muslims was and is to obey - Allah and Muhammad. The demand for obedience is unabridged today.

034 24/54f: "If ye (Muslims*) obey him (Muhammad*), ye shall be on the right guidance." If Muhammad with his partly immoral ethical and moral codes (compare to "do unto others like you want others do unto you") represents right guidance, we will prefer never to meet anyone who represents wrong guidance.

035 24/56c: "- - - obey the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad demanded absolute obedience from his followers - in spite of his repeated claims that he demanded nothing from them for his preaching. A quite Fascistic, not to say Nazi point of view (also the same on the far left side politically, but Islam normally are compared to the far right ideologically).<`p>

036 25/44c: “They (non-Muslims*) are only like cattle - nay, they are worse astray - - -". Who are most similar to cattle - the ones able to think for themselves, or the ones saying to the leader: "We hear and we obey"?

037 33/33f: "- - - obey Allah and His Messenger - - -". A stronger version of Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his platform of power, Allah.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

#####038 33/36a: "It is not fitting for a Believer (Muslim*) - - - when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger, to have any option about their decision - - -". Full control - absolute power - no thinking, only obedience. The ultimate dream for any dictator. One extra point here is that in reality it was Muhammad who made the decisions here on Earth - not even Muhammad claimed he got all details dictated from Allah. And the final touch: No god dictated the Quran - too much mistakes, contradictions, etc. - then who in reality dictated here that one should obey among others - and the only one on Earth - Muhammad absolutely blindly?

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

039 33/36b: "It is not fitting for a Believer (Muslim*) - - - when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger, to have any option about their decision - - -". (YA3721): "We (Muslims*) must not put our own wisdom in competition with Allah's wisdom." If a Muslim knows something is wrong in the Quran, he shall all the same believe what the Quran says(!!). No comment - and not one single one necessary!!

Not less serious: At the time of Muhammad obedience to Allah = obedience to Muhammad. Total obedience is nice for any dictator. This even more so if the Quran and/or Allah are made up - and at least the Quran and all its errors, etc. is not from any god. No further comment necessary on these facts, too.

(YA3721): "We (Muslims*) must not put our own wisdom in competition with Allah's wisdom." But that is just what Islam and Muslims are doing when they claim they can explain better than Allah himself, when they claim that they explain what Allah really meant (when quranic texts are in error).

040 33/36h: "- - - (if) anyone disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he is indeed on a clearly wrong path." In plain words: If anyone here on Earth disobeys Muhammad, he will end in Hell. The ultimate dictatorship.

041 33/66c: "Would that we (non-Muslims*) had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger (Muhammad*)". In a religion it really should be enough to obey the god - which should have been what counted. But one also had to obey Muhammad. A bit thought provoking when you know this is a mannerism followed by many false prophets. Jesus said "follow me" - yet another indication for that Jesus and Muhammad did not belong to the same religion.

042 33/71d: "- - - he that obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". See f.x. 33/66c above.

043 33/71f: "- - - he that obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), has already achieved the highest Achievement". No comment - except: Good psychology if the listeners are naive, uneducated or in more or less blind belief.

044 33/71j: "- - - he that obeys Allah and His Messenger, has already attained the highest Achievement". As Muhammad was the only one of these two the people met, these were the sweetest possible words for Muhammad's lust for power - and for any dictator's such lust.

045 35/19b: “The blind (non-Muslims*) and the seeing (Muslims*) are not alike - - -”. Is there an irony in the fact that the Quran and Islam demand blind obedience and belief?

046 36/21a: "Obey those who ask no reward of you (for themselves) - - -". This is reflecting Muhammad's often repeated, but very wrong claim that he demanded nothing from his followers. He demanded much - extremely much - included their lives, total power, huge fortunes to use as gifts/bribes to attract and keep followers, respect, lots of women, etc. Persons like Jesus and Buddha really claimed nothing for themselves, and there is an irony in that if Muslims are to follow verses like this in the Quran, they cannot follow Muhammad but have to follow f.x. one of the two mentioned.

047 47/20-21: "- - - more fitting for them (the ones not wanting to go to war*) were it to obey - - -". Obey whom? Allah, of course! - which here on Earth meant obeying Muhammad. A nice sentence for any dictator.

048 47/33b: "Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his platform of power - here the mantra is in a very clear form.

049 48/11f: "But Allah is well acquainted with all that ye (people*) do". The old warning: Be obedient and do not try to cheat. But also see 2/233h above.

050 48/13a: "And if any believe not in Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*), We (Allah*) have prepared, for those who reject Allah (in practice here on Earth those who disobey Muhammad*), a Blazing Fire!" A clear message from Muhammad: Obey me or end in Hell. Is it possible for any dictator to find a stronger "whip"?

###Also the big differences between the Bible's and the Quran's hells are more than big and fundamental enough to prove that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - if they had been, also their hells had been more or less identical.

051 48/16b: “Say (Muhammad*) to the desert Arabs (but most of the Quran is valid for all people and all times according to Islam*) who lagged behind: ‘Ye shall be summoned (to fight) against a people given to vehement war: then shall ye fight, or they shall submit. Then if ye show obedience (fight*), Allah will grant you a goodly reward (rich spoils of war and Paradise*) - - -”. A huge carrot to make fighting attractive - but what peaceful religion goes far out to make war attractive?

052 48/17d: "- - - obeys Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra for gluing himself to Allah, his platform of power.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

053 48/18a: "Allah's Good Pleasure was on the Believers when they swore Fealty to thee (Muhammad*) under the Tree (in Hudaybiyah outside Mecca in 628 AD*)." Swearing obedience to Muhammad for taking part in his raids and wars, was Good Pleasure to Allah - some "Religion of Peace"! And a very easy and good way for Muhammad to get ruthless warriors - - - and a most cheap way for him pay them.

054 49/14d: "- - - if ye (desert Arabs) obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A nice small condition - especially as here on Earth that meant: "If ye obey me, Muhammad".(Also on this point there is a great difference between Jesus and Muhammad. Jesus said "Follow me", Muhammad said "Obey me".)

055 49/14h: "- - - if ye (nominal Muslims*) obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A somewhat stronger version of Muhammad's standard mantra to glue himself to his platform of power; his god.

##056 58/9b: "- - - disobedience to the Messenger (Muhammad*)- - -". This is one of the places in the Quran where Muhammad makes a slip and indirectly admits that - at least sometimes - it is Muhammad and not necessarily Allah you shall obey.

057 58/13d: "- - - obey Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad*)". A strengthened version of Muhammad's standard mantra for attaching himself to his source of power; his religion and his god.

####Note how close Muhammad attaches himself to the power of his claimed god - in plain words: "Obey me - Muhammad". You find this many, many places in the Quran. Power was the main thing Muhammad sought - and riches to gain more power. The Quran clearly indicates that power - and respect - meant even more for him than women. And he was eager for (young) women - willing ones and not willing ones - and at least one child.

#058 59/4e: "- - - if anyone resists Allah (here on Earth read: Muhammad*), verily, Allah is severe in punishment". A clear message: If you resist, you will be severely punished. And it turned out to be the very truth many times. Islamic history of aggression and war, included raids and slave raids at times and places was horrible.

059 59/4f: "- - - they (Bani al-Nadir*) resisted - - -". See 58/1b above and 59/4e just above. To defend yourself against Muhammad was a sin. Not bad for a claimed good and benevolent god.

060 59/7e: "So take what the Messenger assigns you, and deny yourself what he withholds from you". This seems to be an answer to the many who - at least sometimes justly - thought they did not get their fair share of what they had stolen - Muhammad rather wanted to use it for "gifts" to make unsure followers stay and to attract new ones.

061 60/12c: "- - - that they will not disobey you (Muhammad*) in any just matter - - -". Very nice for Muhammad - he liked power.

062 64/12a: "So obey Allah, and obey his Messenger (Muhammad*) - - -". A strengthened version of Muhammad's mantra to glue himself to supreme power. But a very nice slogan for Muhammad, as here on Earth, to obey Allah was identical to obeying Muhammad - and the other way around.

Also each time the Quran orders people to obey Muhammad is a proof for that Jesus and Muhammad were not similar - Jesus normally said "follow me", not ”obey me". There is a great distinction between those two expressions.

063 64/16b: "- - - listen and obey - - -" - the duty of any Muslim. And whom to obey on this Earth? - Muhammad (and his successors) of course.

064 65/5a: "That is the Command of Allah - - -". But as the Quran is not from a god, the pertinent question is: Is the command really from Allah? - or from some dark forces pretending to be Allah? - or from one or more humans, f.x. Muhammad? - or simply from a sick brain like modern medical science suspects, like TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy)? Rules similar to the ones in 65/1-4 which this refers to, you do not find in the Bible and definitely not in NT at all - one more proof for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god, and Jesus and Muhammad not in the same religion.

065 67/16-18: Different threats about what punishments Allah can send if you refuse Muhammad and Islam. Be good and obedient and do not risk this.

###066 72/23d: "- - - for any that disobey Allah and his Messenger - for them is Hell - - -". A very clear message - especially as the only one they in reality could disobey here on Earth, was Muhammad.

067 76/24a: "Therefore be patient with constancy to the Command of thy Lord (Allah*) - - -". It is worth remembering that here on Earth this in praxis meant the commands of Muhammad - like it normally do for the claimed prophet of a personally run sect or religion.

Sub-total Chapter 48 = 67 + 4.562 = 4.629.
