Moses & Muhammad:-
The Quran shows repeatedly, that Muhammad's Allah is intimately interested and involved in the private and public affairs of Muhammad and his followers; so much so, that the reader gets the impression, that Allah was there at the beck and call of Muhammad.
Moreover, in the Suras that were 'revealed' in the Madina Period, as well as in almost all of the Hadiths, Muhammad and Allah's name became totally inseperable and twinned by the repeated use of the MANTRA
" Allah and his messenger"
Almost every 'revelation', item of knowledge and action taken by Allah, had to be with the consent and approval of Muhammad.
Muhammad & Allah became almost indistinguishable. The latter is reflected in numerous verses in the Quran wherein the reader can find it extremely difficult to tell as who was 'talking', Allah or Muhammad.
Not once in the Torah, is Moses elevated to more than a simple human being who had been chosen by the Almighty to transmit a message to the Israelites. Not ONCE is Moses called a PROPHET in the TORAH because he was ONLY a MESSENGER.
Not once in the Bible, are the prophets portrayed in any manner vis a vis the Almighty except as human vehicles forwarding His message.
Not once, can the reader of the Bible find the Almighty, plotting, scheming and counter plotting against His own creatures, unlike the Allah of Muhammad, as shown in numerous verses of the Quran.
Only in the Quran are Allah and Muhammad coupled repeatedly as if they were equals.
Only in the Quran is Allah, the god of Muhammad, interested in the minutae of the private life of Muhammad, his household and his followers.
No where in the Bible are such verses mentioned regarding the God of Israel and His messengers.
These important differences, inconsistencies and contradictions can easily be explained when one understands that Allah was the supreme god of the pagan Ka'ba, the BLACK STONE, and is NOT the Biblical God of Israel Who has NO NAME and definitely NOT Allah.
Contrary to all the Muhammadan claims to his superiority over Moses, the FACTS even according to the Quran, prove otherwise. Muhammad was NEVER addressed directly by Allah but always through the alleged medium of the Hebrew angel, Gabriel.
On the other hand, the Quran asserts that Allah 'spoke directly/kalimu'lAllah' to Moses; a first hand transmission and NOT second hand, through the Gabriel, as in the case of Muhammad.
Most important of all, what was allegedly 'revealed' to Muhammad is a fraction of what was given to Moses and this fraction is NOT based on the Torah record but on what Muhammad PLAGIARISED, PLUNDERED, PIRATED and or PERVERTED, from the Bible and from EXTRA CANONICAL Jewish legends.
In fact, there is not a single verse in the Quran that represents a new, practical, spiritual and intellectual idea, thought, concept or precept, which in any way shape or form, is equal to, or superior to anything, that the Quran itself has Plagiarized, Plundred, Pirated and or Perverted from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, Zoroastrian and pagan Arabian religions, their scriptures, their traditions and their fetishes; not a single such verse exists.
4: 164 Of some Apostles We have already told thee the story; of others We have not; and to Moses Allah spoke direct [wa kallama Allahu Mousa takleema].
7: 104 Moses said: "O Pharaoh! I am an apostle from the Lord of the worlds.
*** Moses also, was only a messenger ***
Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 5858 Narrated byAnas ibn Malik
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: I happened to pass by Moses on the occasion of the Night Journey near the red mound (and found him) saying his prayer in his grave.
*** At the beginning, Muhammad saw Moses praying in his grave (standing, laying down or prostrating?). Then he and Moses - as well as all the other prophets - prayed together at the NONE EXISTENT Temple of Solomon at Jerusalem and shortly thereafter he passed Moses at the 6th heaven before going to the 'presesnce' of Allah.
It is important to remember that, according to the Bible, Moses had NO GRAVE.
While it can be well understood that Muhammad accompanied by Gabriel was being transported by Buraq, the question to be asked is how was Moses transported from his grave, to Jerusalem and then to the 6th heaven in such an incredibly short period of time?
How were the other prophets transported to arrive at their stations BEFORE him?
Since it is asserted by the followers of Muhammad that his was a PHYSICAL transport, that is, that Muhammad was transported BODILY, then it is obvious that all the other prophets were also transported physically to be able to pray with Muhammad at the NONE EXISTENT Temple of Solomon.
These 'facts' contradict the Quranic assertion that ONLY on the LAST DAY, JUDGEMENT DAY, would the dead be RESURRECTED
If the Quran is the uncorruptible word of Allah, how then are there so many contradictions, lies and inconsistencies within it? ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 3.888 Narrated byUbai bin Kab
Allah's Apostle said, "Moses the Apostle of Allah," and then he narrated the whole story about him. Al-Khadir said to Moses, "Did not I tell you that you can have no patience with me." (18.72). Moses then violated the agreement for the first time because of forgetfulness, then Moses promised that if he asked Al-Khadir about anything, the latter would have the right to desert him. Moses abided by that condition and on the third occasion he intentionally asked Al-Khadir and caused that condition to be applied. The three occasions referred to above are referred to by the following verses:
"Call me not to account for forgetting And be not hard upon me." (18.73)
"Then they met a boy and Khadir killed him." (18.74)
"Then they proceeded and found a wall which was on the verge of falling and Khadir set it up straight." (18.77)
*** Verses 18:60-82 are not found in the Biblical narrative but in Rabbinical writings (Hibbur Yaffe 8-1) about a legendary encounter between the prophet Elijah and Rabbi Joshua ben Levi.
The story being attributed to Moses is verifiably FALSE.
Why the Quran attributed it to Moses is NOT beyond comprehension when the readers realise - based upon the hundreds of other erroneous and blatant lies in the Quran - that it was Muhammad's total lack of understanding or of correctly memorising the stories that he was regaled with by Jews and or Christians.
What is most disturbing - though much more understandable - is the deliberate collusion of the knowledgeable interpreter in the deception and falsification of Jewish history and writings to fit the Quranic version ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 4.619 Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Angel of Death was sent to Moses when he came to Moses, Moses slapped him on the eye. The angel returned to his Lord and said, "You have sent me to a slave who does not want to die." Allah said, "Return to him and tell him to put his hand on the back of an ox and for every hair that will come under it, he will be granted one year of life." Moses said, "O Lord! What will happen after that?" Allah replied, "Then death." Moses said, "Let it come now."
Moses then requested Allah to let him die close to the Sacred Land so much so that he would be at a distance of a stone's throw from it." Abu Huraira added, "Allah's Apostle said,
'If I were there, I would show you his grave below the red sand hill on the side of the road.' "
*** Deuteronomy 34: 5 " So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.
6 And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-Peor; but no man knows his grave till this day".
*** It seems that Muhammad was the only one in the universe who could identify the unmarked grave of Moses who had died over 2000 years earlier.
Moreover, Muhammad must have been wrong, since Moses was buried in a VALLEY and NOT on a HILL***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 8.611 Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Prophet said, "Adam and Moses argued with each other. Moses said to Adam, 'O Adam! You are our father who disappointed us and turned us out of Paradise.' Then Adam said to him, 'O Moses! Allah favored you with His talk (talked to you directly) and He wrote (the Torah) for you with His Own Hand. Do you blame me for action which Allah had written in my fate forty years before my creation?' So Adam confuted Moses, Adam confuted Moses," the Prophet added, repeating the statement three times.
*** This verse asserts the primacy in Muhammad's understanding of the relationship between Allah and humanity: the centrality of the concept of human PRE-DESTINATION.
It also shows the total lack of intelligence and logic which Muhammad exhibits throughout most of his Quran as shown in the verse above:
1. TIME starts with the CREATION. There is NO TIME BEFORE the Creation.
Hence to speak of "forty years before my creation" is UTTERLY insane.
2. Unfortunately for Muhammad and the concept of PRE-DESTINATION, is the corollary, that if humanity is pre-destined, then there is no need for religion. Without religion, there is no need for prophethood; without prophethood there is no need for Muhammad or any other prophet, for that matter.
INVARIABLY the Quran ans Ahadith COMMIT SUICIDE with there own 'writings, lies, falsehood, deceptin and contorted explanations' ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 1.345 Narrated byAbu Dhar
Allah's Apostle said, "While I was at Mecca the roof of my house was opened and Gabriel descended, opened my chest, and washed it with Zam-zam water. Then he brought a golden tray full of wisdom and faith and having poured its contents into my chest, he closed it. Then he took my hand and ascended with me to the nearest heaven, when I reached the nearest heaven, Gabriel said to the gatekeeper of the heaven, 'Open (the gate).' The gatekeeper asked, 'Who is it?' Gabriel answered: 'Gabriel.' He asked, 'Is there anyone with you?' Gabriel replied, 'Yes, Muhammad is with me.' He asked, 'Has he been called?' Gabriel said, 'Yes.' So the gate was opened and we went over the nearest heaven and there we saw a man sitting with some people on his right and some on his left. When he looked towards his right, he laughed and when he looked toward his left he wept. Then he said, 'Welcome! O pious Prophet and pious son.' I asked Gabriel, 'Who is he?' He replied, 'He is Adam and the people on his right and left are the souls of his offspring. Those on his right are the people of Paradise and those on his left are the people of Hell and when he looks towards his right he laughs and when he looks towards his left he weeps.'
Then he ascended with me till he reached the second heaven and he (Gabriel) said to its gatekeeper, 'Open (the gate).' The gatekeeper said to him the same as the gatekeeper of the first heaven had said and he opened the gate. Anas said: "Abu Dhar added that the Prophet met Adam, Idris, Moses, Jesus and Abraham, he (Abu Dhar) did not mention on which heaven they were but he mentioned that he (the Prophet) met Adam on the nearest heaven and Abraham on the sixth heaven. Anas said, "When Gabriel along with the Prophet passed by Idris, the latter said, 'Welcome! O pious Prophet and pious brother.' The Prophet asked, 'Who is he?' Gabriel replied, 'He is Idris.' The Prophet added, 'I passed by Moses and he said, "Welcome! O pious Prophet and pious brother.'"I asked Gabriel, "Who is he?"Gabriel replied, "He is Moses." Then I passed by Jesus and he said, "Welcome! O pious brother and pious Prophet."I asked, "Who is he?" Gabriel replied, "He is Jesus."
Then I passed by Abraham and he said, "Welcome! O pious Prophet and pious son."I asked Gabriel, "Who is he?"Gabriel replied, "He is Abraham." The Prophet added, "Then Gabriel ascended with me to a place where I heard the creaking of the pens." Ibn Hazm and Anas bin Malik said: The Prophet said,
"Then Allah enjoined fifty prayers on my followers.
When I returned with this order of Allah, I passed by Moses who asked me, 'What has Allah enjoined on your followers?'
I replied,'He has enjoined fifty prayers on them.'
Moses said, 'Go back to your Lord (and appeal for reduction) for your followers will not be able to bear it.'
(So I went back to Allah and requested for reduction) and He reduced it to half. When I passed by Moses again and informed him about it, he said, 'Go back to your Lord as your followers will not be able to bear it.' So I returned to Allah and requested for further reduction and half of it was reduced. I again passed by Moses and he said to me: 'Return to your Lord, for your followers will not be able to bear it. So I returned to Allah and
He said, 'These are five prayers and they are all (equal to) fifty (in reward) for My Word does not change.'
I returned to Moses and he told me to go back once again. I replied, 'Now I feel shy of asking my Lord again.' Then Gabriel took me till we reached Sidrat-il-Muntaha (Lote tree of the utmost boundary) which was shrouded in colors, indescribable. Then I was admitted into Paradise where I found small (tents or) walls (made) of pearls and its earth was of musk."
*** The above story is repeated in BH 5.227;4.429; 9.608.
What is remarkable about it, is that Muhammad and his followers think that it shows their superiority over that of Moses and his followers.
This perception of theirs, shows how ignorant they are of the actual conclusions that can be made of the story, as can be derived from the following:
1 Muhammad's boast of fifty prayers a day as a sign of greatness, is totally belied by the fact, that it would have required him and his followers to pray once every 28.8 minutes of the day and night.
2 At the rate of one prayer every 28.8 minutes means, that neither Muhammad nor his followers could work, sleep, have sex or eat in a reasonable manner.
3 By any standard of logic, this was an extremely ONEROUS, UNFAIR and UNREASONABLE command from Allah. A command which has no inherent mercy, love or compassion for Muhammad and his followers.
4 None the less, Muhammad accepted it without any debate or argument. This is not the mark of total obedience, but a total lack of good judgement. This definitely contradicts all the boasts of Muhammad that Allah loves him.
5 While the Bible shows how Moses negotiated with the Almighty whenever he thought Him unduly unfair, harsh or unreasonable, the Ahadith on the other hand, show that Muhammad had neither the good sense nor the compassion to defend his followers at the OBVIOUSLY totally onerous command of fifty prayers a day that Allah ordained.
6 One must suppose, that being semi literate and unlearned, he may not have had time to do the simple calculations required to conclude, that Allah was being unreasonable and uncharitable to say the least.
7 Had it not been for the very fortuitous, very opportune and repeated interventions of Moses, Muhammad and his followers would have thrown in the towel and remained pagan instead.
8 Without the 'intercession' of Moses, the Muhammadan 'religion', his version of 'Islam' would have collapsed immediately. It would not have existed.
9 In conclusion, it was Moses who single handily saved Muhammad and his 'Islam'.
10 Hence, Muhammad's boast that he is in any way, shape or form superior to Moses is hollow, absurd and definitely unsubstantiated and more over, made totally null and void as contradicted by this Muhammadan story ***
