4:82Do they not consider the Qur'an (with care)? Had it been from other than Allah would surely have found therein much discrepancy.
#The unity of the Qur-an is admittedly greater than that of any other sacred book. And yet how can we account for it except through the unity of Allah's purpose and design? From a mere human point of view, we should have expected much discrepancy, because (1) the Messenger who promulgated it was not a learned man or philosopher, (2) it was promulgated at various times and in various circumstances, and (3) it is addressed to all grades of mankind. Yet, when properly understood, its various pieces fit together well even when arranged without any regard to chronological order. There was just the One Inspirer and the One Inspired#
*** This is a preposterous statement since the Quran contains only a fraction of the history and precepts that are in the Bible.
A COPY can never be equal to the ORIGINAL.
Moreover as is shown here, there is an ENORMOUS number of DISCREPENCIES in the QURAN ***
Contrary to all the assertions and attempted falsifications of the historical records, the Quran is found to be as CORRUPTIBLE as any other document written or recorded by HUMAN beings:
1Since writing materials were very scarce in Arabia at the time of Muhammad and most of the people were ILLITERATE, the Quran was first of all 'memorised' by different people at different times in different places whenever and wherever the alleged 'revelations descended' to Muhammad over a period of almost 23 years.
2It is a fact that human memory can be very selective and subjective hence altering the original events and when transmitted down the line it would inevitably be corrupted.
3Verses were written on palm fronds, bark of trees, bones of sheep or camels, bits of wood or stone, strips of leather, potsherds and odd bits of parchment again in different places at different times. To collect, collate and analyse such disparate materiel fully, comprehensively and truthfully is impossible.
4According to the Hadiths,some verses were eaten by a goat - since they were written on palm fronds or tree bark - on the day Muhammad died.
5Other verses perished during the civil wars that occurred after Muhammad's death during which many of the memorisers were slaughtered.
6Quranic verses were deleted and or added to by Muhammad and or his followers over a period of almost 23 years (Abrogating & Abrogated verses). There never was an 'original' manuscript of the Quran.
7It is reported in Ahadith that Abdullah Sarh, who was one of scribes who wrote down the verses as recited to him by Muhammad would suggest variations to them to which Muhammad agreed upon. After a while, Abdullah decided to renounce 'Islam' on the ground that if the 'revelations' were from Allah, then not even Muhammad would have had the audacity to change them. Later, when Muhammad 'conquered' Mecca, he wanted him murdered to shut his mouth.
8Since the Kufic script had no vowels, hence there were different interpretations of the verses made by different people adding to the confusion and the multiplicity of Quranic manuscripts.
9The Quran is full of Abrogated and Abrogating verses which no Omniscient 'God'would have committed; such a multitude of 'changes of the Divine Mind' cannot and should not be attributed to a divine Being since this would constitute the ultimate blasphemy.
10The Quranic texts that existed after the death of Muhammad were numerous and incompatible. There was not in existence any collection of revelations in a final form because as long as he was alive, new 'MADE to ORDER REVELATIONS' were being added to or changed by Muhammad from the earlier ones.
11Muhammad never had the chance to authorise and supervise the collection of a single Quran for his followers to adhere to. This was his greatest and most devastating failing and the cause of a continuous division of his Umma for the last 1400 years.
12Umar ibn al Khattab ordered Zaid ibn Thabit, Muhammad's secretary, to collect all the available records into one compilation.
13It is a matter of record that Umar al Khattab always insisted that there was Surat al Rajam which of course is not included in Uthman's version.
14In Uthman's version of the Quran, Meccan verses were interloped into MadinanSuras and vise verse.
15The Quran is not 'written' in the chronological order of the 'revelations' but in the order of the Suras with the most verses in descending order. The first verse - from Laylat al Qadr - of the Quran of the first Sura is actually the 96th in this arrangement instead of being the first.
16The first Sura in the Quran is al Fatiha of SEVEN verses and should have been between the 105th to 114th instead had it not been for the fact that it should not have been a Sura in the Quran but just an opening supplication and hence the Quran should have had only 113 Suras.
17The fact that almost every verse in the Quran needs interpretations, interpolations and elaborations, speaks volumes as to its legibility and ease of understanding even by the greatest authorities on the Arabic language. A chapter in Jalal al Din al Suyuti's Kitab al Itqan is devoted to this by addressing not only the misarrangement of the contents of the Uthmanic recension of the Quran but also its difficult language.
18Many of the Mutaazelite authors (c. 220/835) such as Ibrahim al Nazzam, Ibn Hazm, Abu'l Hussein al Khayyat, Hesham b Amr al Fuwati, Abbad b Sulayman and others openly acknowledged that the arrangement and syntax of the Quran are neither miraculous nor eternal, and can be compared equally to any that can be produced by others. The number of Quranic aberrations from the normal rules and structure of the Arabic language exceeds one hundred.
19It contains sentences which are incomplete and not fully intelligible without the aid of explanations.
20It contains over 100 words which are definitely NOTArabic in origin but from Syriac, Aramaic, Hebrew, Ethiopic, Persian, etc. Moreover it contains unfamiliar Arabic words as well as words used with other than the normal meaning.
21It contains numerous verbs and adjectives inflected without observance of the concords of number or gender.
22There are numerous illogically and ungrammatically applied pronouns that sometimes have no referent.
23It contains predicates which in rhymed passages are often remote from the subject.
24It contains no details about the manners of prayers, ablutions, rituals, laws and punishments. All these have to be found in the Ahadith and the Sunna of Muhammad, without which, the Quran is totally deficient.
25As the Empire expanded with rapidity, new collections were being put forward with serious textual variations. Uthman ordered Zaid and three other 'scholars' to draw up an 'authorised' version and all the others, six important codices - which had additional revelations that Uthman omitted from his standardised text- were BURNT. So much for the sanctity of the Book of Allah.
26Ubai bin Ka'b al Ansari who was one of several memorisers of Muhammad's'revelations' had many Suras in his manuscript which Uthman omitted from the standard version or Umar had disallowed earlier.
27The SATANIC VERSES cast a serious shadow about even the inadvertent or deliberate corruptibility of the Quran by Muhammad himself.
If SATAN was able to put verses in the mouth of Muhammad without him realising that they were not 'divinely revealed', one can ask the pertinent question:
How many other Quranic verses were 'revealed' to Muhammad by Satan without his knowledge?
28 17: 88Say: "If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur'an they could not produce the like thereof even if they backed up each other with help and support.
Moreover, how could the Quran assert that no HUMANS or JINNS could emulate the verses of the Quran when Satan did just that ?
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.8Narrated byIbn Abbas
Umar said, "Our best Qur'an reciter is Ubai and our best judge is 'Ali; and in spite of this, we leave some of the statements of Ubai because Ubai says, 'I do not leave anything that I have heard from Allah's Apostle while Allah said: "Whatever verse (Revelations) do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten but We bring a better one or similar to it." ' " (2.106)
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 6.118/512/116/117Narrated byAl Bara
When the Verse: "Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home)," (4.95) was revealed, the Prophet said, "Call so-and-so." That person came to him with an ink-pot and a wooden board or a shoulder scapula bone. The Prophet said (to him), "Write: 'Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and those who strive and fight in the Cause of Allah." Ibn Um
Maktum who was sitting behind the Prophet then said, "O Allah's Apostle! I am a blind man."
So there was revealed in the place of that Verse, the Verse: "Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home) except those who are disabled (by injury, or are blind or lame etc.) and those who strive and fight in the Cause of Allah." (4.95)
*** As usual, a 'made to order' verse was INSTANTLY 'revealed' to suit the occasion***
1: 1In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful. 2Praise be to Allah the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds. 3Most Gracious Most Merciful.4Master of the Day of Judgment.5Thee do we worship and Thine aid we seek. 6Show us the straight way. 7The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace Those whose (portion) is not wrath and who go not astray.
Studying the words and verses of the above, it is very clear that they represent homage, praise and supplication to Allah and the need for his help. These words are addressed by Muhammad to Allah since it could not have been Allah praising, paying homage and supplication to himself. They represent Muhammad's prayers.
What is more important, these verses do not start with the Arabic commandment Qulmeaning 'Instruct or Tell' as represented in Suras 10:49/50; 17:42; 18: 119; 23:93/97; 34:22-30; 109:1; 112:1; 113:1 and many others. Hence, to all intents and purposes - and contrary to all other theological double speak - this is not a Surah which was 'revealed' to Muhammad and should not have been given a number.
In some verses the verb is in the first person and in others in the third; evidently Allah speaks first and Muhammad speaks on his behalf as in Sura 53 al Najim or in Sura 17 al Israa verse 40
"Has then your Lord preferred for you sons ,and taken for Himself daughteramong the angels?" cannot be the words of Allah, who would not ask himself whether or not he has daughters.
In some other verses of the Quran there is confusion between two speakers in the same verse, Allah & Muhammad.
Sura 17:1 al Isra " Glory to (Allah) Who did take His servant for a journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque; whose precincts We did bless - in order that We might show him some of Our signs; for He is the One Who heareth and seeth all things".
The first sentence is obviously not Allah's since he would not be praising himself. The next verse is of course Allah's but the last verse is again Muhammad's since Allah would not be praising himself.
Another anomalous verse is the one in
Sura 48 al Fath "1 Verily We have granted you a manifest victory 2. That Allah may forgive your earlier and later sin…"
The first verse is Allah's but definitely not the second.
The anomalies in the above verses can be explained logically. Some others are much more difficult to explain away such as
Sura al Ahzab 33: 21 " We have indeed in the messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day and who engages much in the praise of Allah"
It is very difficult to believe that it is Allah'revealing' these words since they should have been constructed differently such as :
"Ye have indeed in My messenger the best example to emulate for any one who seeks Me…"
33:24 "That Allah may reward the men of truth for their truth and punish the hypocrites…"
Once more, this verse could not have been 'uttered' by Allah because he would have otherwise spoken in the first person such as
" In order that WE may reward the sincere for their sincerity…."
The above are only a few among hundreds more confusing and unusually structured verses in the Quran where in both Allah and Muhammad are giving instructions, interchangeably.
In several instances, the reader can separate the one from the other; in other instances it is obvious that Allah is not the one giving the instruction or 'revelation'.
*** There is not a single verse/aya in the whole of the Quran that represents a new, practical, spiritual and intellectual precept, concept, idea or thought, that in any way shape or form is equal to, or superior to anything that the Quran itself had Plagiarised, Plundered, Pirated and/or Perverted from the Bible, from the New Testament, from Zoroasterian religion, from Pagan Arabian religion, their traditions, their fetishes and their scriptures.
