240.   SUWA - A PAGAN GOD FROM OLD ARABIA

There are indications for that Suwa and the other 4 gods mentioned in 71/23 once were imported from the north.

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

#001 71/23b: "Wadd - - - Suwa' - - - Yaghuth - - - Ya'uq - - - Nasr - - -". 5 gods which were cherished in Arabia at the time of Muhammad. But Muhammad claimed these gods were cherished by Noah's people somewhere in southern Mesopotamia (now southern Iraq) 2500 years earlier. What were the chances those people had the same gods as in the distant Arabia some 100 generations later? Muslims of course say these gods were imported from Mesopotamia and were age-old - but there exist no documentation for this at all; just one more of Islam's many not proved claims. Worse: Science believes they were imported from Syria, not from Mesopotamia + that in the old times when there were no books to make ideas permanent, gods slowly changed over the generations - they were not the same through 2500 years. (Just compare to all the chances the god Il went through: First he was the main god Il somewhere in the east (perhaps in south Mesopotamia where one also believes Noah lived - if he is not fiction). Then in Arabia he slowly became the moon god al-Ilah, at least in the southern part. Then he developed into the main god of Arabia, al-Lah and got lots of daughters - angels and goddesses. Then his name drifted towards Allah, but still a pagan main god. And finally Muhammad dressed him up to become the monotheistic god Allah. (But unless everything in the Quran is true, included the never proved claim that the book is from a god (a claim all the errors in the Quran - and also the fact that it is proved the Bible is not falsified - strongly prove wrong), Allah still is a pagan, made up god.)

Wrong unless Islam proves - proves, not claims - differently.

241.   TAHIR

- perhaps a son of Muhammad.

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

001 108/3d: (A108/2 - omitted in the English 2008 edition): "The Prophet Muhammad got at least two sons (Qasim and Ibrahim*) - - -". (YA6288) tells he had 2 sons with Khadijah (Qasim and Abdullah*), and then there was the son Ibrahim he had with his colored slave girl Marieh. Two are sporadically mentioned in Islamic literature, as they died very young - Qasim and Ibrahim. The third (Abdullah) hardly is mentioned at all. There also is a slight possibility that he had one or two more son(s) - Tahir and/or Tayyab - but also he/they in case died very young. He also had four daughters (all with his first wife, Khadijah), but only one of them - Fatima - survived him, and just by half a year. If one believed in higher forces, one might believe he was punished for something through is children.

Tahir and Tayyab also may have been other names for the likely son Abdullah.

245.   THAMUD

An old tribe from Arab folklore.

The Thamuds likely existed. They are named "Tamudaei" by Aristo of Ghios, Ptolemy, and Pliny. But the oldest known reference to them is an inscription made by the Assyrian king Sargon II in 715 BC - 500 years after Moses. They disappeared from history sometime between 600 and 400 BC.

The trouble is that according to the Quran, they have to have lived before Moses - and even before Abraham - 1000+ years before Sargon II and roughly 600+ years before Moses.

Worse: Thamud is said to be "the second 'Ad" and their inheritors. Historians say that 'Ad in case existed from around 1ooo BC to the 3. century AD. As the Quran places them well before Abraham (2ooo-1800 BC), as the Thamud also were before Abraham, but after 'Ad, this means that 'Ad's demise is some 2500 years or more wrong in the Quran, and Thamud's at least 1200 - maybe 1600 or more - years wrong.

And how could Thamud be the inheritors of 'Ad if Thamud came to an end 600 - 400 BC, whereas 'Ad lived on till around 300 AD? - at least some 700 years later?

Also: The 'Ad tribe lived in what now is the border area between Oman and Yemen far south on the Arab peninsula. To be their inheritors, also the Thamud must have lived there - - - but they lived in the north-west part of the peninsula. "Explanation" according to Muslims: Thamud lived in the costal lands in the south, but for some reason or other emigrated to the mountainous semi desert far further north. We have found no confirmation about such a trek.

WARNING: It has been difficult to find reliable info about the Thamud, because the net is saturated with stuff "adjusted" to fit the Quran. But we believe we have found the correct facts.

246.   THOSE WHO RECEIVED SCRIPTURES

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

This is a name used for Jews, Sabeans, and Christians - see those. Later to a degree also Zoroastrians (in Persia) were included, as also they had religious scriptures, something Muhammad was not aware of, at least not originally. (Zoroastrianism - also called Mazdaism or Magianism - was founded by the philosopher Zoroaster in Persia/Iran and developed into a religion in the 6. century BC. It was monotheistic (and thus acceptable on this point by Islam) with the god or good power Ahura Mazda and the opposing devil or bad power Angra Mainyu. Zoroastrism influenced several religions in the area, included Jewism, Christianism and Islam.)

247.   TIME ANOMALY

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

In our books this means things or facts or claims or persons, etc. mentioned in the Quran, which would have no meaning to "prophets", "messengers", or others reading claimed copies of the claimed "Mother of the Book" = copies similar to the Quran, which is claimed to be an exact copy of "the Mother of the Book (= the claimed "mother" of the Quran), before the mentioned happening or whatever took place, before the mentioned person existed, etc. F.x. the word Badr or "the Battle of Badr" would not mean anything to Noah, or Abraham, or Moses when they red their copies of "the Mother of the Book" = a parallel to the Quran, like the Quran claims they all received and red (though no trace of such copies or of a religion like Islam or a god like Allah older than 610 AD when Muhammad started Islam, was ever found, neither by science, nor by Islam, nor by anybody else. This in spite of that Islam hints that at least 124ooo copies were sent down. (######For the Bible some 45ooo relevant scriptures or fragments older than 610 is found - and that book definitely was not sent down in 124ooo copies.)

249.   TRINITY

- the connection between God/Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, according to the church. But just here it is possible Muhammad was right when he said the Trinity was/is manmade. The Trinity is something agreed on some 300 years after Jesus, and not a part of the Bible. The Trinity was first mentioned late in the 2. century, but then with another meaning. The present meaning of the Trinity was slowly incorporated into the largest part of Christianity over a period of some 200 years, until it finally was fully accepted and got its present form through the so-called Cappadocian Fathers - Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nyssa, and Gregory of Nazianzus - at the end of the 4. century.

The closest the Bible is to this name, is that Jesus several times said that he and Yahweh were one (but without giving further details). All the same we stress that there is no point in the Bible which makes the Trinity impossible.

#####But there also is a curious fact: The Quran believes that the Trinity consists not of the God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, but of the God, Jesus, and Mary!! Muhammad may have believed errors like this, but no god had made such a stupid mistake - then who made the Quran?

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

001 2/87g: "- - - the Holy Spirit." This is one of the few places the Holy Spirit is clearly mentioned in the Quran (at least here and in 2/253, 5/110, 16/102, 17/85, and 26/193 - the last one not 100% sure, though). All the same Muhammad believed the trinity consisted of God/Yahweh, Jesus and Mary!! Also beware that many Muslims who has not read the Bible, believe the Holy Spirit = the arch angel Gabriel (Gabriel was said to bring Muhammad messages, the Holy Spirit was said a few times to bring Muhammad messages - "ergo" the Spirit = Gabriel. You also other places in Islamic literature will see that not all Muslims have studied the laws of logic. "Cows have horn. Cars have horn. 'Ergo' they are the same".) Anyone who reads the Bible with an open mind, will see that the Holy Spirit is something special.

002 2/135i: (Abraham) "joined not gods with Allah". Neither do Jews nor Christians. They only have one god. If Muhammad - and Muslims - does/do not understand the Trinity (Muhammad here was completely lost, mixing Mary into it), that is his/their problem - Christians understand it and know there only is one god, Yahweh (even though less than 10% of the Christians know this name, and only calls him God.) Also see 2/255a, 6/106b and 25/18a below.

003 2/221a: “Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters (is this word in the Arab text?)), until they believe”. Contradicted – and abrogated – by: 5/5: “(Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste women among the People of the Book”. Then at least Christian women should not be accepted according to 2/221, as they use religious icons, etc., and there is the Trinity. If the word “idolaters” are not in the Arab text (text in ( ) sometimes is explanation, sometimes specification – and sometime a “help” to the text to sound more correct), Muslim men can marry all Christian and Jewish women.

004 2/253f: "- - - the holy spirit - - -" This is one of the few times the Spirit - also named the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of God/Yahweh, the Spirit of the Lord, etc. - like Allah and like Muhammad it has several names) - is mentioned in the Quran (you also find it in 2/87, 5/110, 16/102, 17/75 likely in 26/193). Muhammad had very vague ideas about it and f.x. believed the Trinity consisted of Yahweh, Jesus and Mary (!). Muslims often claim it is another name for the angel Gabriel - and idea no-one who ever read the Bible with an open mind would get. And in addition to everything else which makes the claim ridicules, the old Jews knew well the difference between angels and spirits, and in the entire Bible there is not one single case where the two are mixed or mistaken. (But never think that a religious person will believe facts if they do not fit his belief).

As for Gabriel there is a strange fact in the Quran: He is never named in the surahs from Mecca. Not until after he came to Medina did Muhammad start claiming he got his information(?) and messages(?) from Gabriel. If Muhammad really had got - or even only believed he got - the claimed messages from a central angel, this had been such a strong agument that there is no chance Muhammad had not told about this - and often - during the first difficult 13 years in Mecca. What is the explanation?

005 3/33d: "- - - Imran - - -". Imran was the father of Moses, Aaron, and Miriam, but Muhammad knew the Bible so little and had so vague ideas about its contents, that he believed Imran also was the father of Mary (mother of Jesus) some 1200 years later (actually he believed Mary and Miriam was the same person) - any god had known better, so who made the Quran? Well, the likely reason for the mistake is that in Arab both Mary and Miriam is written Maryam. Also see 3/35a+b below. An extra tit-bit here is that as Muhammad believed Miriam, sister of Moses, and Mary, mother of Jesus was the same woman, and as he further believed Mary was part of the Trinity, Miriam - sister of Moses - has to be part of the Trinity. Muhammad had got his Bible pretty mixed up to say the least of it. No god would make such historical and religious nonsense. Then who made the Quran?

006 4/171p: "- - - say not 'Trinity' - - -". Here Muhammad may have a point, as the trinity is not from the Bible. (But Jesus did say that he and his father (Yahweh) were one - may be literally, may be figuratively meant. And there was the Holy Spirit.)

007 5/17a: "In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ - - -." No Christian - not one single one - says that Allah (or Yahweh) = Jesus. They are separate, but closely connected only. To use an Irish picture: Together with the Spirit they make up the 3 parts of a clover leaf. As for the Trinity, though, Islam may be right, as this is not clearly a part of the Bible (though Jesus said: "My Father (Yahweh/God) and I are one" - may be figuratively meant). But no Christian says Yahweh/God = Jesus.

A picture may be: Yahweh = the god. Jesus = a co-worker and/or friend and/or crown prince. The Holy Spirit = the messenger - an errand boy and helper.

*008 5/17b: “In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ (= put another god by Allah’s side – the ultimate and unforgivable sin according to 4/48 and 4/116) - - -". No Christian says that Jesus is Allah or the other way around. Neither do they say that Jesus is Yahweh. Also Muhammad never understood the trinity dogma of the Christians. (He believed the trinity consists of Yahweh, Jesus and Mary!!!). But if one looks only at that dogma, Islam may be right that it is not correct - may be. It is only a dogma decided on by humans after much discussion; it is not part of the Bible - but see 5/17a just above. (This dogma is from the 4. century, and it got its present form from the so-called Cappadocian Fathers (Gregory of Nyassa (332-395), Basil the Great (320-79 AD), Gregory of Nazeanzus (329-389). The nearest you come in the Bible is that Jesus said that he and his father, Yahweh, were one.) Also see 5/17a and 5/73b. But no-one in his right mind and with some knowledge about the Bible, would ever believe Mary was part of the trinity. Any even baby god had known. Then who made the Quran?

009 5/73a: “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity”. Our sources tell that the 3 last words does not exist in the Arab edition, but is added by Yusuf Ali. Then the correct text in case ends: “Allah (Yahweh*) is one of three (gods*).” This obviously is wrong, as Christians only believe in one god. Besides it is a most dubious way of working to make additions to a text without making the readers aware of that it is an addition – f.x. by at least putting the addition in ( ).

But the claim in any case is wrong: Christians do not say Allah is one of a Trinity, but Yahweh is one of a Trinity. (But there is a chance for that the Quran here is correct when it denies that the god is part of a trinity, as this is not said in the Bible - this is a Christian dogma from the 4. century, and it got its present form from the so-called Cappadocian Fathers. The nearest you come in the Bible is that Jesus said that he and his father, Yahweh, were one.) Also see 5/73b just below.

010 5/73b: “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity - - -.” Muhammad said Yahweh = Allah, and he never understood the trinity - he even believed it consisted of Yahweh, Jesus, and Mary, a mistake no god - agreeing or not agreeing to the Trinity - would have made. But for once there is a possibility that the Quran has a point; the Trinity is formally not a part of the Bible. On the other hand those are the three special ones: Yahweh, Jesus and the Holy Spirit - we may think of them as God, his co-worker and representative, and his errand boy/messenger boy and helper. Trinity or not - those three have a special status according to both the Bible and the Quran (even though the Quran does not agree to which status - it even say the Holy Spirit = the angel Gabriel, which makes anyone really knowing the Bible laugh.) There also is the fact that according to the Bible, Jesus said that he and his father were one - but figuratively meant. Also see 5/73a just above.

As for Gabriel there is a strange fact in the Quran: He is never named in the surahs from Mecca. Not until after he came to Medina did Muhammad start claiming he got his information(?) and messages(?) from Gabriel. If Muhammad really had got - or even only believed he got - the claimed messages from a central angel, this had been such a strong argument that there is no chance Muhammad had not told about this - and often - during the first difficult 13 years in Mecca. What is the explanation?

011 5/73c: “They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity - - -.” This was to put two other gods at the side of Allah – two times the ultimate sin. This contradicts – and abrogates:

  1. 2/62: “- - - those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabeans any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work in righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord - - -.”
  2. 5/69: “Those who (believe in the Quran), and those who follows the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabeans – any who believe in Allah (here included Yahweh/God*) and the Last day, and work righteousness – on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”

(2 contradictions).

012 5/75d: "They (Mary and Jesus*) had both to eat their (daily) food." This is intended to be a proof for that they just were ordinary humans - even lowly angels f.x. visiting Abraham did not eat food. (Funny; Muslims in Paradise have to eat - one of their few pass-times and one of their few things to look forward to in the claimed next life - f.x. absolutely no intellectual activity). But on Earth Jesus was born as a physical normal human who needed food. The "proof" thus is of no value. As for Mary: Here Muhammad tries to prove she was not part of the Trinity, as she was a human. Not even the most imbecile Christian ever said she was part of that. We simply are back to the fact that Muhammad did not understand these central parts of Christianity: No-one ever indicated that Mary was part of the Trinity or divine - some say she was holy, but in the meaning "better than ordinary people", not in the meaning "divine", and some do not even say that. As for Jesus; no matter whether one believes he was divine or not, no-one ever indicated that his life here on Earth was in something other than a normal human body. Muhammad is breaking in open doors. And any god had known this. Who made the Quran?

*013 5/116d: Mohammad believed the Trinity consisted of God/Yahweh, Jesus and Mary. Wrong. Both Muhammad and the Quran were wrong in the extreme when he/they thus believed Mary was part of the Trinity. (It consists (?) of God/Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit – also called the Holy Ghost, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of God, or only the Spirit, the Spirit of the Lord, and a few other names). Muhammad never understood the trinity and he never understood the Holy Spirit, even though he used the Spirit a few times in the Quran – and some Muslims refer to the Holy Spirit in the Quran as another name for the arch angel Gabriel(!) as it is “known” that Gabriel brought surahs and verses, but it is also said in the Quran that the Spirit brought some. A logical short-circuit. (No knower of the Bible would ever get this idea - and no god would ever believe so, so who made the Quran?).

As for Gabriel there is a strange fact in the Quran: He is never named in the surahs from Mecca. Not until after he came to Medina did Muhammad start claiming he got his information(?) and messages(?) from Gabriel. If Muhammad really had got - or even only believed he got - the claimed messages from a central angel, this had been such a strong argument that there is no chance Muhammad had not told about this - and often - during the first difficult 13 years in Mecca. What is the explanation?

014 9/31e: "- - - yet they (the Christians*) were commanded to worship but One God - - -". Muhammad never understood the Christian religion and thinking. According to Christians there is only one god. Then there is a figure - a helper or something (the son, Jesus) - who in reality gets his light and his power from God/Yahweh. And finally there is something more diffuse and seldom seen: The messenger boy or something named the Holy Spirit (sometimes wrongly claimed to be the arch angel Gabriel by Muslims who have never read the Bible, or who have read it with a closed mind). To use a picture: There is one sun. Then there is a moon which gets its light from the sun. And there is the seldom seen satellite somewhere around. But only one sun. And that is the complete "pantheon". To mix Mary into the Trinity (like Muhammad does at least one place in the Quran) just is one more proof for that no god made the Quran, and for that Muhammad did not understand the Trinity. Mary and the other saints (only for the Catholics, and not for all of them) are not divine. In Islam some good Muslims end in the higher heavens closer to Allah. In the same way Catholics believe that some really good Christians end up closer to God in Heaven - though figuratively. And just like Muhammad claimed he can interfere for whom he like on the Last Day, Catholics believe that as these normal, but good, humans called saint can interfere with God on our behalf, as they are closer to him. But as this is not a part of the Bible, the Protestants - and the Sunni Muslims - may be right: May be there are no saints.

015 16/35a: "The worshippers of false gods - - -". An interesting point here is that Muhammad reckoned Christians to believe Jesus was/is such a false god - Muhammad never understood the Gospels and the rest of NT on points like this. The Bible does not say Jesus is a god, only that he is divine - a prince is not a king, even if he belongs to the royal family (and in this case he also never will become a king, as the king - Yahweh - is eternal). Muhammad also never understood the Trinity dogma, and believed it consisted of Yahweh, Jesus and Mary instead of of Yahweh, Jesus and the Holy Spirit (though he may be right that the Trinity dogma is not correct - the three may perhaps not be one - that dogma is manmade and may be wrong, as this is not said in the Bible. It is a Christian dogma from the 4. century, and it got its present form from the so-called Cappadocian Fathers (Gregory of Nyassa (332-395), Basil the Great (320-79), Gregory of Nazeanzus (329-389)). The nearest you come in the Bible is that Jesus said that he and his father, Yahweh, were one.)). And to finish the Trinity: The Holy Spirit is a kind of messenger or ambassador for Yahweh - one hardly with any will of its own. And just to mention it: Many Muslims claim the Holy Spirit just is another name for the archangel Gabriel. No-one who really knows the Bible would ever get that idea - the claim was not even worth a comment if it was not because many Muslims do not know any better and believe in it. It also is not said in the Quran.

016 18/5b: "It is a grievous thing (to say Jesus is son of Yahweh*) that issues from their (Christians'*) mouths as a saying". For one thing Muhammad could not accept Jesus was son of Yahweh, because the obviously Muhammad was not the greatest. Besides he never understood the constellation Yahweh/Jesus/Holy Spirit (though he may be right that the trinity dogma may be is not correct - it is man-mad and not from the Bible - - - but Muhammad believed it consisted of Yahweh/Jesus/Mary(!)), and he never understood that a prince only is a prince even if his father is a king - Jesus belonged to divine stock, but was and is not a god. Thus he found that to look at Jesus as divine, was polytheism, and polytheism he could not accept.

017 19/89b: "Indeed ye (Christians*) have put forth a thing most monstrous (that Jesus is the son of Yahweh*)!" If Jesus is the son of Yahweh/God, Muhammad impossibly can be the greatest of prophets. On the other hand one cannot totally omit that may be Muhammad really wanted the god to be the only big one, and believed Christians had Jesus as god number 2 (and Maria(!!) as number 3 in the trinity).
