A Guide to the Qur

E-mail Print PDF
(A few readers wanted to know why I am repeating some contradictions. The answer is: I am not repeating; Allah is repeating many verses; I am just following what Allah had done in the Qur’an—Abul Kasem)

Sura 29: al‑Ankabut (The Spider)

Just memorize it
Parents and children are not to obey each other if either party worships other than Allah.
Contradiction: in 17:23, 31:15 Allah asks the new converts to respect their biological parents and siblings even if they remain idolaters/unbelievers.

Unbelievers are to bear the burden of their own sins, as well as the burdens of deluding others.
Contradiction: 11:110 says Allah intentionally creates controversy.
Contradiction: 17:15 says whoever goes astray is due to his detriment; no one can bear another person's burden.
Contradiction: 20:129 says Allah would have destroyed the unbelievers instantly, but He didn’t.
Allah gave Prophethood to Isaac (younger son of Abraham), Jacob (Isaac’s son, i.e., the grandson of Abraham) and Abraham's progeny (Ismail, the eldest son of Abraham).

Contradiction: 16:36 says Allah gave prophethood from among every community.

When Lot admonished his peo
ple for their sinful acts of sodomy and highway robbery; they challenged Lot to bring to them the wrath of Allah.
Contradiction: 7:82, 26:167, 27:56 say Lot’s people wanted to banish Lot from their town.
Do not translate the holy text!!
Afghan demonstrators protest in Jalalabad, Afghanistan on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2007 against Ahmad Ghaws Zalmai, a man accused of insulting the Quran by translating the holy book.
Let's have a guess - the good Afghan Muslims could understand the holy text for the first time in their lives and refused to accept the sad reality of quranic wisdom.

Sura 30: al‑Rum (The Roman Empire, The Greeks)

Allah had destroyed many powerful and resourceful nations of the past; Allah did not wrong the unbelievers, but they wronged their souls themselves.

Contradiction: 35:8 says Allah guides who He wishes to guide.

Sura 32: as‑Sajdah (Adoration)

The Qur’an is not forged; it is a warning to people who had no apostle before Muhammad (that is, Qur’an is for the people of Arabian Peninsula. The Qur'an is for the Quraysh to whom no messenger came before—ibn Abbas.)

Contradiction: 10:47, 16:36, 35:24 say Allah sent messengers to every people.

Allah created the heavens (first) and (then) earth and (then) all between them in six days; (then). He is firmly established on His throne; He is the only protector and helper.

Contradiction: 41:9‑12 says Allah created the heavens and the earth in eight days.
Contradiction: 2:117 says Allah creates instantly.
Contradiction: 5:55 says Allah’s messengers are the protectors and helpers.
Contradiction: in 13:11, 41:31, 50:17‑18, and 82:10 Allah says angels are our protectors.

Allah rules all affairs from heaven to earth; it takes one day (one thousand years) for any affair to reach Allah’s attention; so, a day is one thousand human years to Allah’s reckoning.

Contradiction: 50:16 says Allah is closer than the jugular vein.
Contradiction: 57:4 says Allah is on His Throne.
Contradiction: 70:4 says one day of Allah is 50,000 human years.

Allah fashioned the first man (Adam) in due proportion, breathed His soul into him and gave him faculties of hearing, sight, and feeling.

Contradiction: 15:29 says Allah breathed into Adam a soul especially created for Adam.

We need a caption for this photo. Any ideas?
Sura 34: Saba (The City of Saba)

Before the Qur’an, Allah did not send any religious books to the Arab pagans, nor did Allah send any prophets to them before Muhammad.

Contradiction: 10:47, 16:36, 35:24 say Allah sent messengers to every people.

Sura 35: Fatir (The Creator) or Malaika (The Angels)

Allah created the heavens and the earth (out of nothing—Yusuf Ali), and added to His creation as He pleased. He appointed angels with up to four wings of two or three or four as messengers.

Contradiction: verses 12:109, 21:7, 2520‑21 say Allah sends only men as messengers.
Contradiction: 27:82 says Allah sends a beast as a messenger.

Whoever wants to go astray Allah will lead him there, and whoever wants to be guided, He will guide him (whatever he admires and sees as good in his own desires becomes his religion—ibn Kathir).

Contradiction: 30:9 says an individual wrongs his own soul, not Allah.

There is no community on whom Allah did not send a messenger.

Contradiction: 28:46, 32:3, 34:44, 36:6 say before Muhammad Allah did not send any messengers to the Arabs.
The believers will be in Gardens of Eternity; they will be adorned with bracelets (bangles) of gold and pearls.

Contradiction: 39:73 says there is one garden in Islamic Paradise.
Contradiction: 76:21 says bracelets/bangles of silver, and their garments will be of silk.

Sura 36: Ya‑Sin

The Quraysh received no apostle before Muhammad.

Contradiction: 10:47, 16:36, 35:24 say Allah sent messengers to every people.

Sura 37: as‑Saffat (Those ranged in Ranks)

In Islamic hell unbelievers will eat the bitter Zaqqum fruit.

Contradiction: 88:6 says the unbelievers will eat only Dari tree.
Contradiction: 69:36 says the unbelievers will eat only pus and filth.

Elias admonished his people for worshipping Baal (a sun god) instead of Allah, the best of creators.

Contradiction: 39:62 says Allah is the only creator.

Allah made the fish throw an emaciated Jonah into a desert.

Contradiction: 68:49 says, to show mercy, Allah kept Jonah inside the fish’s belly; He did not throw Jonah into a desert.

Allah sent Jonah (Yunus) to more than a hundred thousand people to believe in him. (After his rescue from the fish’s belly Allah sent him to the people of Nineveh, in the region of Mosul—ibn Kathir).

Contradiction: 14:4 and 30:47 say Allah sends His messengers only to their own people.

Sura 38: Sad

Allah informed the angels that He was about to create a man from wet clay.

Contradiction: 3:59 says Allah created Adam out of dust.
Contradiction: 15:26 says Allah created Adam out of black burnt clay.
Contradiction: 19:67 says Allah created human out of nothing.
Contradiction: 21:30 says Allah created all living beings from water.

Allah has two hands; He created Adam with His two hands; so why did Iblis refrain from worshipping Adam?
Contradiction: 3:59 says Allah says ‘be’ and it is.

Sura 39: Az‑Zumar (The Crowds, The Throngs)

If willed, Allah could have chosen for Himself a son out of His creation.

Contradiction: 6:101‑102 says Allah could not have children because He has no consort.

Just like any other men, Muhammad will surely die.

Contradiction: 4:157 says Jesus did not die; Allah raised him up.

The idols have no power or intelligence (i.e., the idols are dumb); so they cannot intercede; only Allah can intercede.

Contradiction: 6:108 says Muhammad must not disparage the idols of the pagans, lest they disparage Allah.

Allah is the creator of all things; He is the guardian and the disposer of all affairs.

Contradiction: 23:14, 37:125 say besides Allah, there are other creators.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

Attention: open in a new window. PDF | Print | E-mail

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

History - Infidels' Resistance

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

History - Tolerance Myths

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).

In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam. We all know that the nucleus of Islam are: Quran, Hadiths (Sunnah) supported by Islamic histories and biographies recorded by various famous Islamic scholars and historians.
