62.   "COMPANIONS OF THE ARK"

According to the Quran Noah had followers. This then means Noah, most of his family, and his other followers. (According to the Bible there only was his family, but his whole family.)

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

001 29/15b: "But We (Allah*) saved him (Noah*) and the Companions of the Ark - - -". Well, according to the Quran Noah lost one of his sons. (Not so in the Bible, where all his 3 sons were saved - 1. Mos. 7/13.) But as he was not on board the Ark, formally the text in the Quran is not wrong.

002 29/15c: "- - - him (Noah*) and the Companions of the Ark - - -". A time anomaly.

63.  COMPANIONS OF THE CAVE

This is an old and made up Christian legend (some Muslims claim Christians based it on an older Jewish legend - but no matter a legend), the legend about the 7 sleepers. The Quran claims it is a real and true story.

Most of the stories in the Quran are "borrowed" from legends, apocryphal made up stories, etc. - even from fairy tales and coq-and-bull stories (f.x. the stories about Alexander the Great/Dhu'l Quarnayn are from a coq-and-bull story written by a Syrian in the 6. century).

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

*001 18/9a: “Or dost thou reflect that the Companions of the Cave - - -”. This is an old tale - a religious legend - that is incorporated in the Quran pretending it is a true story and even "a wonder among Our (Allah's*) Signs". The story of the 7 sleepers is well known - and is just a well known fairy tale. The 7 were Christians from Ephesus in what is now Turkey, who fled to a cave during a pogrom under “Cesar” Decius the story goes.

Decius had the cave walled up to kill them. Instead the 7 fell asleep, and did not wake up until in the 30.th year of the reign of the pious emperor Theodosius - that is in 448 AD. Decius reined for just over two years around/just after 250 AD. That means that if the fairy tale had been true, they had slept some 195 years (the Quran says 300 or 309 years - even in the fairy tale it is wrong). Islam has troubles explaining this story, and the “explanations” we have seen, are very “lofty” and diffuse - f.x. that it really is told about an older Jewish fairy tale - or that it derives from misunderstandings about the Esseers - the members of the Qumran society (near the Dead Sea) but without giving any sources or documentation - only speculations. Besides the age does not matter – it is as made up even if it should happen that the original is a bit older. They also tell it is an allegory - which they mostly do when they have difficulties finding “explanations” which are possible to believe. But an allegory of what? And it obviously is not meant to be an allegory - among other things the meanings of an allegory in the Quran normally are very easy to see or are explained. The Quran further normally tells when it is telling an allegory or something similar, and not least; the Quran itself stresses that it shall be understood literally if nothing else is said. The sleepers also mentioned in 18/22 – 18/25. Also see 18/13 below.

This story is not from the Bible.

002 18/9b "- - - the Companions of the Cave - - -". A time anomaly.

003 18/9c: (YA2336): “- - - and the Inscription (“raqim”) - - -.” Arab “raqim” means inscription. But it also may be the name of a dog, according to some Muslim scholars The "sleepers" had a dog according to Quran. The book does not specify and nobody knows - the famously clear and not to be misunderstood language in the Quran.

###004 18/9d: "- - - ("the 7 sleepers") - - - were wonders among Our (Allah's*) Signs - - -". To tell a made up legend - a fairy tale - is a sign, is some wonder and some "Sign". But not a little of the Quran's arguments and "signs" are on this level.

This story is not from the Bible.

005 18/9f: "- - - (the story about the seven sleepers*) were wonders among Our (Allah's*) Signs (normally "Quran-speak" for "proof") - - -". It really tells something about Muhammad and about the Quran, that an old and well known made up legend is a "wonder among Our Signs".

006 18/9-26: The sleepers in the cave - the even today well known religious fable from Ephesus, about the 7 youths who fled from emperor Decius (a real emperor reigning only 2 years around 250 AD) and went to sleep in a cave, and then woke up maximum 196 years later (the Quran says 300 or 309 years) under the more well known emperor Theodosius). Just read it - it normally even is better told than in the Quran. "The 7 sleepers" is a well known Christian and perhaps Greek fable - well known also in Arabia at the time of Muhammad. Some Muslims wants it to be inspired from an even older Jewish legend, but that in case does not help the "reliability" of the Quran when it tells this is a true story - which it is not.

This story is not from the Bible.

007 18/10a: "(Allah*) Bestow on us ("the 7 sleepers"*) mercy from Thyself - - -". See 1/1a and 1/1e above.

008 18/10b: "- - - dispose (Allah*) of our ("the 7 sleepers") affair for us in the right way!" It is a good thing this story is a fairy tale - retold in the Quran under the pretention it is a true story - because only in fairy tales Allah can dispose of anything at all if he does not exist.

##009 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.)

010 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, who knew everything about everything on beforehand according to Islam.)

#011 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!

012 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.

This on too many points is the level of the reliability in the Quran.

013 18/14a: "Our ("the 7 sleepers"*) Lord (here intended to be Allah*) is the Lord of the heavens (plural and wrong*) and the earth - - -". Contradicted by the Bible, which says Yahweh is the real ruler. 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.

014 18/14c: "- - - if we ("the 7 sleepers"*) did (call upon another god than Allah*), we should indeed have done an enormity!" Now, they "in reality" were believers in Yahweh - the story originally most likely is Christian, but perhaps Jewish - so may be it had not been a big enormity to call on Yahweh?

015 18/16a: "- - - your ("the 7 sleepers") Lord (here claimed to be Allah*) will shower his mercies on you and dispose of your affairs - - -". Would he be able to do so if the story about the 7 sleepers was not in reality a fairy tale?

016 18/17a: “Thou wouldst have seen the sun, when it rose, declining to the right from their (the 7 sleepers‘*) Cave, and when it set, turning away from them to the left, while they lay in the open space in the midst of the Cave. Such are among the signs of Allah - - -”. Some sign; presumed sleeping men in a lightly revised fairy tale. (But the Quran have nearly no tale not known beforehand in Arabia - all are taken from older fairy tales, folk tales, fables, legends, apocryphal/made up) scriptures, the Bible, the Torah and a few from tales from countries further east, and then twisted a little to fit the Quran. It was not strange that skeptics told Muhammad and Muslims that they just told old tales.

017 18/17b: “- - - the signs of Allah - - -.” There is not one single sign in the Quran that clearly is from Allah, and thus not one single “sign” that proves anything about Allah. Any priest in any religion can just as easy say they are signs of his god(s). Words are that cheap. And this "sign" is extra revealing, as the story ("the 7 sleepers") simply is a retold fairy tale. Some proof! ("Sign" in the Quran mostly is Quran-speak for "proof for Allah".)

018 18/18a: "- - - thou wouldst have certainly turned back in flight from them - - -". Why? There is no logical reason for that. Except if Muhammad needed a reason why they could lay in peace so long (in the original story the entrance was walled up and closed and the men left to starve, but not so in the Quran).

019 18/18b: "- - - Thou - - - wouldst certainly have been filled with terror of them". As little reason as in 18/18a just above.

020 18/19: "- - - We (Allah*) raised them ("the 7 sleepers"*) (from sleep), that they might question each other". Some reason.

021 18/21h: (A31 – in 2008 edition A30): “Let us (people*) surely build a place of worship over them (“the 7 sleepers”*)”. Or is the more usual translation correct? – that they should build a wall to close the cave. Who knows? - the language in the Quran is not clear, like so often.(In the original legend they were walled in and left to starve - how big chance would they have for not being molested by animals - or humans - if they were lying in an open cave for 300 or 309 years like the Quran claims?)

022 18/22a: “(Some) say they ("the 7 sleepers") were three, the dog being the fourth among them, (others) say they were five, the dog being the sixth - doubtfully guessing the unknown; (yet others) say they were seven, the dog being the eight”. If Muhammad got this story from a real story via a god, not from a well known fairy tale, the god had known their number (well, a god had known the number that was told in a legend - and that it just was a legend), but Muhammad obviously not. Also see 18/13 just above.

#023 18/22b: "Say thou (Muslim*): 'My Lord (Allah*) knoweth best their (the sleepers'*) number - - -". But the Quran claims it is just Allah who is speaking throughout this story (he is speaking in 1. person) - why then this expression and why is an omniscient god unsure about the number??

024 18/25: “So they (the 7 sleepers) stayed in their Cave three hundred years, and (some) add nine more”. See 18/13 and 18/22. (If one relies on some historical facts mentioned in the main variety of the legend, they slept some 195 years). As for the claim 300 or 309 years, it may or may not mean something that 300 natural years = 309 Muslim years (the Muslim year is an artificial construction some 11 days shorter than a natural year).

025 18/26a: "Say: 'Allah knoweth best how long they (the 7 sleepers*) stayed - - -". See 18/22b above.

64.  COMPANIONS OF THE CITY

One of the many unclear stories in the Quran.

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

001 36/13: "- - - the Companions of the City - - -". No indication is given for which city. Many Muslims think it is meant Antioch, but there is no real indication for this. We also point to that it is said in the Quran that this is a parable - one of the not too many places where such a thing is said in the Quran (in spite of Muslims' frequent claims about parables, etc. to explain away mistakes). And that is likely to be the truth here: A story made up to highlight a point or a meaning - a parable simply.

65.  "COMPANIONS OF THE ELEPHANT"

- an army wanting to attack Mecca around 570 AD.

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

001 105/1: "- - - the Companions of the Elephant- - -". This refers to an attack from Abyssinia in 570 AD (though modern science question if the year is quite correct). The vice king Abrahah or Abrah, lost much of his army because of a virulent illness - perhaps smallpox - and had to return home without attacking Mecca. The troops were NOT killed by stones from birds. (Muslims sometimes try to “explain” the clear text and the as clear mistake away by some linguistic gymnastics that includes that the Arab word for stone and the one for writings are not dissimilar, and they think that these words have been mixed up (in a holy book sent down by Allah, and without mistakes - how many more mixed ups?), and then say the meaning is metaphorical (in a book that Allah says shall be understood as it is written), it may not mean stones, but hard physical strikes - but also hard physical strikes is not the same as illness (and how hard physical strikes can birds give?). Muslims frequently have to use far out “explanations” like this to try to camouflage mistakes in the Quran. But if there is a linguistic mistake here according to Muslims – how many more linguistic mistakes are there in the Quran?

66.   COMPANIONS OF THE FIRE (HELL)

- claimed to be all non-Muslims.

When it comes to "the carrot and the whip", Mohammad used the "whip" not a little.

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

001 2/39a: “But those who reject Faith (see 2/39d below*) and belie Our (Allah’s*) Signs, they shall be Companions of the Fire - - -”. Just as well or as little documented as what was said about heaven in 2/25 above. Just words anyone can use - obey Baal or Zeus and go to Heaven, and disobey him and go to Hell. Anyone can say anything as long as he can evade demands for proofs. Also see 3/77b below.

002 2/39e: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". Also see 2/99f, 8/55b and 57/27f below. Non-Muslims bound for Hell.

 

003 2/81c: "- - - companions of the Fire - - -". Non-Muslims bound for Hell. Also see 2/99f, 8/55b and 57/27f below.

004 2/119h: "- - - the Companions of the Blazing Fire". The sinners/non-Muslims bound for Hell. Also one of Muhammad's many negative and distaste inducing names for non-Muslims. Also see 3/77b below.

005 2/217h: "- - - they (who have left Islam*) will be Companions of the Fire - - -" See 3/77b below.

006 2/217i: "- - - Companions of the Fire (Hell*) - - -". Non-Muslims bound for Hell.

007 2/257l: "They (non-Muslims and bad Muslims*) will be Companions of the Fire - - -". = will go to Hell. For Jews and Christians the Bible disagrees. Also see 3/77b below.

008 2/275c: "- - - but those who repeat (the offence) are Companions of the Fire: they will abide therein (for ever)." See 3/77b below.

009 2/275cd: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". = The ones destined to go to Hell. Also one of the many negative names Muhammad had for non-Muslims.

010 3/116c: "Those who reject Faith (Islam*) - - - will be Companions of the Fire - - -". Contradicted (to say the least of it) by the Bible, at least regarding Jews and Christians. 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.

011 3/116d: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". = They who will end in Hell. Also one of Muhammad's damning names for non-Muslims.

012 5/10c: "- - - Companions of the Hell-fire". = They will go to Hell.

013 5/10d: "- - - Companions of the Hell-fire". See 3/77b above.

014 5/29b: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". The ones destined to end in Hell.

015 5/86a: "But those who reject Faith and belie our Signs - they shall be companions of Hell-fire.

  1. As for Jews and Christians, the Bible tells another story.
  2. If so happen that Yahweh is a true god and Allah not, few if any Muslims will end in Yahweh's Paradise, partly because parts of the Quran's moral code, etc. are so perverted (compare to the "constitution" of true moral: "Do unto others like you want others do unto you"), that persons living according to those rules are not acceptable for Yahweh, and partly because they do not seek him, but another, quite likely made up, god.

Another point is that the claim is wrong: As there are no signs provably from Allah, to doubt the existence of such ones is not to belie them.

016 5/86e: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) shall be Companions of Hell-fire". See 3/77b.

017 5/86f: "- - - Companions of Hell-fire". Persons who are bound for Hell.

018 7/36c: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) are Companions of the Fire - - -". See 3/77b above.

019 7/36d: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". Persons destined to end in Hell.

020 7/44b: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". = The ones who ended in Hell. This also is one of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

021 7/47a: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". = The ones who ended in Hell.

022 7/47b: (YA1026): “- - - their eyes shall be turned towards the Companions of the Fire - - -.” But who are “they”? – the ones waiting for their “case” to be finished? – or the good Muslims in Heaven? Your guess is as good as anybody else’s.

023 7/50a: “The Companions of the Fire will call to the Companions of the Garden: ‘Pour down to us water or anything that Allah doth provide for your sustenance.’ They will say: “Both these things hath Allah forbidden to those who rejected him”. If you are in pain, it becomes even worse if you know release exists, but you cannot reach it. Muhammad or Allah knew how to impress followers.

024 7/50b: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". = The ones who ended in Hell. This also is one of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

025 9/113e: "- - - companions of the Fire". = They will end in Hell.

026 10/27c: "- - - they are Companions of the Fire - - -". = They will end in Hell.

027 13/5e: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". One of the negative names Muhammad uses for non-Muslims, who he claims are good only for Hell.

028 22/51c: "- - - companions of the Fire". = they who go to Hell. Also see 3/77b above.

029 39/8g: "- - - the Companions of the Fire". Bad persons who are going to end in the Fire.

030 40/6e: "- - - truly they (non-Muslims*) are the companions of the Fire!". Not if they believe in a real god - f.x. Yahweh if he is real like both the Bible and the Quran claims (though the Quran wrongly mix him with Allah*). And especially not so if Allah is a made up god, like all the mistakes in the Quran indicate - no god ever was behind something so full of errors, etc.

031 40/6f: "- - - companions of the Fire". Persons - non-Muslims - destined for Hell".

032 40/43e: "- - - Companions of the Fire!" People going to end in Hell - and at the same time one more of Muhammad's negative names for non-Muslims.

033 46/14a: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". Muslims going to end in Paradise in the claimed next life.

034 57/19k: "- - - they are Companions of Hell-Fire." = they are bound for Hell.

035 57/19l: "- - - they are Companions of Hell-Fire." One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

036 58/17b: "- - - they (non-Muslims*) will be Companions of the Fire - - -". Possible - if Allah exists, if he is a major god, if the non-Muslim do not believe in another, really existing god (f.x. Yahweh whom both the Bible and the Quran claim exists, though the Quran wrongly mixes him with Allah) - - - and if the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth.

037 58/17c: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". Bad people bound for Hell. Non-Muslims.

038 59/20a: “Not equal are the Companions of the Fire and the Companions of the Garden : it is the Companions of the Garden that will achieve Felicity.” There is no doubt: In the eyes of Allah the Muslims are best. And in the eyes of Muhammad they surely were best - - - because they gave him power and warriors? But at least the eyes of Allah will depend on if he exists or not.

039 59/20b: "- - - the Companions of the Fire - - -". Those bound for Hell - the non-Muslims.

###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.

040 64/10e: "- - - those who reject Faith - - - will be the companions of the Fire". Often claimed, but never proved. It also only can be correct if Allah exists and in addition is a god - not f.x. something from the dark powers pretending to be a god. For this claim to be correct it also is necessary that the non-Muslims do not believe in another, real god, f.x. Yahweh - a god who according to both the Bible and the Quran has proved both his existence and his power (though the Quran wrongly mixes him with Yahweh). Allah on the other hand has never been able to prove anything about himself.

041 64/10g: "- - - Companions of the Fire - - -". People bound to end Hell.

042 67/10b: "- - - the Companions of the Blazing Fire". Non-Muslims bound for Hell - or already in Hell

043 67/11c: "- - - the Companions of the Blazing Fire". Non-Muslims bound for Hell - or already in Hell

67.  COMPANIONS OF THE GARDEN (PARADISE)

- claimed to be the Muslims.

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

001 7/42d: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". = They will end in Paradise. Also remember that the big differences between the Bible's Paradise and the one of the Quran, are one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

002 7/44a: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". = The ones who ended in Paradise.

003 7/46c: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". = The ones who ended in Paradise.

004 7/50a: “The Companions of the Fire will call to the Companions of the Garden: ‘Pour down to us water or anything that Allah doth provide for your sustenance.’ They will say: “Both these things hath Allah forbidden to those who rejected him”. If you are in pain, it becomes even worse if you know release exists, but you cannot reach it. Muhammad or Allah knew how to impress followers.

005 7/50c: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". = The ones who ended in Paradise. Also remember that the big and fundamental differences between the Bible's Paradise and the one of the Quran, are one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

006 10/26c: "They are Companions of the Garden - - -". = They are good Muslims and will end in Paradise. At least that is the claim - true only if the Quran is true, and if Allah exists.

007 11/23a: "But those who believe (in the Quran*) - - - they will be the Companions of (Paradise*) - - -". May be true - but only if the Quran is a message from a god, and in addition tells the full truth and only the truth. Also see 11!22b above.

008 11/23c: "- - - Companions of the Garden (Paradise*) - - -". = The ones bound for Paradise. See 19/9f above. Remember that the deep differences between the Bible's Paradise and the one of the Quran, is one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god - if they had been, their Paradise had been one and the same.

009 25/24a: "The Companions of the Garden - - -". The good Muslims who will end in Paradise.

010 25/24c: “The Companions of the Garden will be well, that Day (of Doom*), in their abode, and have the fairest places for repose”. A good future – if true.

011 36/55b: "Verily the Companions of the Garden shall have joy - - -". If the Quran's tales are true, and if Allah exists and is a major god.

Also remember that the deep differences between the reasons for joy in Yahweh's Paradise compared to in Allah's Paradise, are one of the strong proofs for that Yahweh and Allah are not the same god.

012 36/55c: "- - - the Companions of the Garden - - -". The good Muslims heading for - or in - the Quran's and Islam's heaven. See 10/9f above.

013 46/14a: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". Muslims going to end in Paradise in the claimed next life.

014 46/16b: "- - - Companions of the Garden - - -". Muslims going to end in Paradise in the claimed next life.

015 59/20a: “Not equal are the Companions of the Fire and the Companions of the Garden : it is the Companions of the Garden that will achieve Felicity.” There is no doubt: In the eyes of Allah the Muslims are best. And in the eyes of Muhammad they surely were best - - - because they gave him power and warriors? But at least the eyes of Allah will depend on if he exists or not.

016 59/20c: "- - - the Companions of the Garden - - -". Those bound for Allah - the Muslims.

017 59/20e: "- - - It is the Companions of the Garden that will achieve Felicity". This may only be true if the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth. And if Allah exists and is a god.

68.  COMPANIONS OF THE LEFT HAND

Another name for non-Muslims.

In Arabia the left side was the bad and/or unlucky side, whereas the right side was the good and/or lucky side. What does it tell that Allah seems to have the same superstition?

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

001 56/9: "- - - what will be the Companions of the Left Hand?" According the other places those will be the bad people, going to Hell - the left side was the bad side in Arabia.

###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.

002 56/27: "The Companions of the Right Hand - - -". Muslims - bound for the Quran's Paradise - s€ee 10/9f above. In the old Arabia right was the lucky or good side and left the unlucky or bad side. By coincidence(?) it seems that this superstition also is shared by Allah.

003 56/41: "The companions of the Left Hand - - -". See 56/27 above.

004 90/19c: "- - - the - - - Companions of the Left Hand". Non-Muslims bound for Hell.

005 90/19d: "- - - the (unhappy) companions of the Left Hand". One of Muhammad's many negative names for non-Muslims.

001 25/38b: (YA3094): “- - - the Companions of the Rass - - -.” “The Rass" may mean “an old well” or “a shallow water-pit” or be connected to “the burial of the dead” or it may be the name of a town or a place. Islam is at a loss what people here is meant – the Quran simply is too unclear.

70a. COMPANIONS OF THE RIGHT HAND

Another name for Muslims.

In Arabia the right side was the good and/or lucky side, whereas the left side was the bad and/or unlucky side. What does it tell that Allah seems to have the same superstition?

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

001 56/8: "- - - what will be the Companions of the Right Hand?" According the other places those will be the good Muslims, going to Paradise - the right side was the good side in Arabia.

002 56/27: "The Companions of the Right Hand - - -". Muslims - bound for the Quran's Paradise - see 10/9f above. In the old Arabia right was the lucky or good side and left the unlucky or bad side. By coincidence(?) it seems that this superstition also is shared by Allah.

003 56/27-34: “The companions of the right hand (here the good, but not top pious and/or warriors*) - - - (will be) among the Lote-trees without thorns - - - trees with flowers (or fruits) piled one above another - - - in shade - - - by water flowing constantly, and fruits in abundance - - - and on Thrones (of Dignity) - - -(and houris in the next verses – their wives are not mentioned*) - - -“. Not quite like the top class, but at least “on par” with kings and likely the top of dreams possible for uneducated, primitive more or less brutes. But each and every thing in reality just fit to satisfy basic and base earthly dreams of men and potential warriors of the primitive kind and from primitive circumstances. Not a thing beyond that. Compare this to f.x. Matt. 22/30: "At the resurrection (= in Paradise*) people will neither marry not be given in marriage (not to mention sex outside marriage*); they will be like the angels in heaven". Yahweh and Allah the same god with so different Paradises? - an imbecile question. And a 200% proof for the opposite.

004 56/38: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". See 56/27 above.

005 56/90: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". = Muslims. See 56/27 above.

006 56/91a: "(For him is a salutation), 'Peace be unto thee', from the Companions of the Right Hand". = If the Quran tells the full truth and only the truth - and if Allah exists and is a god.

007 56/91b: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". = Muslims. See 56/27 above.

008 74/39a: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". Good Muslims.

009 90/18a: "- - - the Companions of the Right Hand". Muslims bound for Paradise.

70b.  COMPANIONS OF THE RIGHTEOUS

= Muslims. Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. #####Take a close look at the code of moral in the Quran, compare it to normal moral codes and to "do to others like you want others do to you", and you will see that the word "Righteous" has abnormal meanings in the Quran and thus in Islam - like quite a number of other words

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

001 2/130d: "- - - the Righteous". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

002 4/69h: "- - - the Righteous - - -". See 4/69d+e above, and add facts like stealing/robbing, rape, suppression, murder, and more. Muhammad was the anti-these to the company of the Righteous.

003 6/85b: "- - - in the rank of the Righteous - - -". In just this case this may be true. But normally when the Quran uses such expressions, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code.

004 13/35c: "- - - such (in paradise) is the End of the Righteous - - -". Yes, if the Quran is from a god and tells the truth. But the Quran with all its errors is not from a god - and with all its errors most of its tales are errors.

005 16/122b: "- - - he (Abraham*) will be in the ranks of the Righteous". After Muhammad, Abraham is the most central of the prophets in Islam. Moses may be number three. Abraham is mentioned in Hadiths to live in the 7. Heaven (it is not explained how he ended there before the Day of Doom - like the others Muhammad met on his trip through the heavens), where of course also Muhammad will end - and all his women and children if they qualified for that high a heaven. Yes, and plus his houris - we wonder how it was decided which heaven the houris qualified for.)

006 29/9c: "- - - them (good Muslims*) shall We (Allah*) admit to the company of the Righteous". The ones who are going to end up in the Quran's Paradise - - - if the Quran tells the full and only truth. Also see 10/9f above.

007 29/27c: "- - - in the Hereafter (of the company) of the Righteous". = He (Abraham*) ended in Heaven, not in Hell.

008 43/35a: "- - - the Hereafter, in the sight of thy (Muslims'*) Lord (Allah*), is for the Righteous (good Muslims*)". Often claimed in the Quran, but not one proof - only lofty words and claims built on nothing.

009 43/67b: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Good Muslims. Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.

010 43/67c: "- - - Righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes.

011 44/51a: "As to the Righteous (they will be) in a position of Security - - -". If the Quran tells the full and only truth at least on this point.

012 44/51b: "- - - the Righteous - - -". The Muslims.

013 44/51c: "- - - Righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral and ethical codes.

014 45/19c: "- - - Allah is the Protector of the Righteous". If He exists and is not one more mistake in the Quran. And if he in case is correctly described in that book - well, he may also be a protector if he belongs to the dark forces, but what kind of a protector?

015 45/19d: "- - - the Righteous". Muslims - only Muslims are righteous in the Quran.

016 45/19e: "- - - Righteous". Beware that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral and unethical moral and ethical codes and sometimes also in accordance with its own partly unjust sharia laws.

**017 45/19+20: “- - - Allah is the Protector of the Righteous. These are clear evidence to men - - -”. Yes, but only if it is documented that Allah really is a protector. There are no proofs for that in the Quran or anywhere else - only claims or statements based on invalid (not proved) claims or loose statements, etc. There in reality is not even a single valid proof for Allah himself. (But then it is not possible for humans to prove a god - only a god can do that. That is one of the reasons why all the “proofs” in the Quran turn out invalid – Allah refused to or was unable to prove anything). This claim is logically invalid.

018 50/31b: "- - - the Righteous - - -". The Muslims.

019 51/15a: "- - - the Righteous - - -". The Muslims.

020 52/17a: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Muslims.

021 54/54a: "- - - the Righteous - - -". = The Muslims - but remember that when the Quran uses expressions like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code, etc.

022 68/34b: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Muslims.

023 68/50a: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Muslim. According to the Quran Jonah of course was a Muslim.

024 76/5a: (A76/7): “As to the Righteous, they shall drink a Cup (of Wine (wine in Paradise is not intoxicating, according to the Quran*)) mixed with kafur - - -.” And then what is “kafur”? Nobody knows simply. If you open a lexicon you will find different answers – mostly sweet parts of plants, but also camphor – but nothing is really sure, not to mention which of the proposals is the correct one in the Quran. Clearly an unclear language.

025 77/41b: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Muslims.

026 78/31b: "Verily, for the Righteous there (in Paradise*) will be a fulfillment of (the Heart's) desires - - -". Is this really fulfillment of the heart's desires of Muslims?? - good food, good things to drink, good cloths, a nice climate, a nice and peaceful place to live, no work - and plenty of sex for the men? Is that all? Nothing to do and nothing to do for the mind, f. x.? Primitive dreams. A primitive and in a short time a very boring paradise. And now we talk about the men, for whom Islam and its paradise both are made to measure. We have not even mentioned the women and how life in Paradise must be for them.

027 78/31c: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Muslims.

####028 78/31d: "- - - Righteous - - -". Beware that when the Quran uses words like this, it is in accordance with its own partly immoral moral code. #####Take a close look at the code of moral in the Quran, compare it to normal moral codes and to "do to others like you want others do to you", and you will see that the word "Righteous" has abnormal meanings in the Quran and thus in Islam - like quite a number of other words

029 82/13a: "- - - the Righteous - - -". Muslims.

030 83/18b: "- - - the Record of the Righteous - - -". Even once more as the Quran never addresses this question: Why does an omniscient god need a record?

031 83/18f: (YA6019): “- - - 'illiyin - - -.” Literally this word means “the High Place”, but what does it mean here? One guess is “The Place where is kept the Register of the Righteous”. But it only is an “educated guess”. (And why does an omniscient god need a register? - at least he has a PC? - - - if his brain is not good enough.)

032 83/18-21: “Nay, verily (though this definitely is no proved verity/truth*), the Record of the Righteous is (preserved) in ‘illiyin. And what will explain to thee what ‘illiyin is? (There is a Register (fully) inscribed (in a book*), to which bear witness those nearest (to Allah).” The omniscient god Allah needs witnesses – and he is not more advanced and omniscient than that everything has to be written down in a good, old-fashioned book.

033 83/22b: "- - - the Righteous - - -" Muslims.
