Reflecting Muhammad's Paranoia because of hisPathological Narcissism, the Quran - and the Ahadith - are full of conspiracy theories, schemes and counter schemes, conducted by unbelievers (Jews, Christians, Hypocrites & Pagans)against Muhammad, or against Allah or by Muhammad and/or Allah against the unbelievers .
The Ahadith are full of 'corroborating stories'explaining the reasons and details of these verses.
These verses and stories depict Allah, as having exactly the same level of'intellect' and'deviousness' as his own 'human creatures'.
They portray Allah, as a scheming and devious deity, who counter plots and plans against the very creatures that he pre-destined to do whatever he had ordained them to do or to be.
*** If there is any logic, merciful or compassionate divine attributes and/or any morality in all this, it completely escapes this author ***
4: 108 They may hide (their crimes) from men but they cannot hide (them) from Allahseeing that He is in their midst when they plot by night in words that He cannot approve: and Allah doth compass round all that they do.
6: 123 Thus have We placed leaders in every town its wicked men to plot (and burrow) therein: but they only plotagainst their own souls and they perceive it not.
7: 182 Those who reject Our signs We shall gradually visit with punishment in ways they perceive not.183 Respite will I grant unto them: for My schemeis strong (and unfailing)….. 195 Have they feet to walk with? or hands to lay hold with? or eyes to see with? or ears to hear with? Say: "Call your god-partners scheme (your worst) against me and give me no respite!
8: 30Remember how the unbelievers plotted against thee to keep thee in bonds or slay thee or get thee out (of thy home). They plot and plan and Allah too plansbut the best of planners is Allah
9: 73O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites and be firm against them. Their abode is hell an evil refuge indeed. 74 They swear by Allah that they said nothing (evil) but indeed they uttered blasphemy and they did it after accepting Islam; andthey meditated a plot which they were enable to carry out: this revenge of theirs was (their) only return for the bounty with which Allah and His apostle had enriched them! If they repent it will be best for them; but if they turn back (to their evil ways) Allah will punish them with a grievous penalty in this life and in the hereafter: they shall have none on earth to protect or help them.
11: 55"Other gods as partners! So scheme (your worst) against meall of you and give me no respite.
*** How is it intellectually or morally conceivable to have the alleged creator of the universe portrayed with such utterly infantile sentences as those being shown here?
Since it was Allah who PRE DESTINED these so called UNBELIEVERS to 'plot against him', then why is he upset about their behaviour?
They were after all, only fulfilling the destiny that he, Allah, had already 'written' for them***
16: 26 Those before them did also plot (against Allah's Way): but Allah took their structures from their foundations and the roof fell down on them from above; and the Wrath seized them from directions they did not perceive.
#2049 Evil will always devise plots against the Prophets of Allah. So was it with Al-Mustafa, and so was it with the Prophets before him. But the imposing structures which the ungodly build up (metaphorically) collapse at the Command of Allah, and they are often punished from quarters from which they least expected punishment. For example, the Quraish were confident in their numbers, their organisations, and their superior equipment. But on the field of Badr they collapsed where they expected victory.#
*** The interpreter has as usual, avoided telling the FACTS regarding the origin of this verse because it would reflect very badly upon the Quran.
The fact is, that it is based on a story told by al Tabari which recounts the following part of a long story…
Tabari II:108 " ...They took off from Jerusalem and they fell down the Mountain of Smoke. When Nimrod saw that this method would accomplish nothing, he began building the tower - taller and taller. Then he avoided excrement through it Allah seized his building by its foundations and the roof fell down upon them and doom came upon them whence they knew not"
Al Tabari was a Muhammadan historian - who was later killed for his efforts - of great repute but who non the less fell victim to the usual Muhammadan Muslim inability to separate fact from fiction or to allocate historical events in their proper Time and Space.
Jerusalem did not exist in the time of Nimrod nor did Abraham who came on the scene several centuries later.
All this hodge-podge above is based upon Legends of the Jews that Muhammad heard and was - as usual - never able to recount correctly or faithfully ***
34: 33 Those who had been despised will say to the arrogant ones: "Nay! it was a plot (of yours) by day and by night. Behold! ye (constantly) ordered us to be ungrateful to Allah and to attribute equals to Him!" They will declare (their) repentance when they see the Penalty: We shall put yokes on the necks of the Unbelievers: it would only be a requital for their (ill) deeds.
52: 42 Or do they intend a plot (against thee)? But those who defy Allah are themselves involved in a Plot!
71: 22"And they have devised a tremendous Plot.
77: 39Now if ye have a trick (or plot) use it against Me!
86: 15 Lo! they plot a plot (against thee, O Muhammad)16 And I [Allah] plot a plot (against them).
#6077 Though Allah in His Mercy has provided a piercing light to penetrate our spiritual darkness, and made our beings responsive to the growth of spiritual understanding, just as the hard earth is responsive to the sprouting of a seed or the gushing of a stream, yet there are evil, unregenerate men who plot and scheme against the beneficent purpose of Allah. But their plots will be of no avail, and Allah's Purpose will prevail. It happened so with the Quraish who wanted to thwart the growth of Islam. It will be so in all ages#
*** It is beyond logic, intellect, morality or spirituality, to give attributes as pathetic and demeaning as mentioned in the sample of Quranic verses above, to any divinity.
This, by any standard of intelligence, constitutes utter stupidity and BLASPHEMY of the first order regarding the Divine.
These verses can only make sense, if and when the reader realises that they actually are addressing the Black Stone,the rock god of the of the Ka'ba, Allahand NOTthe One and Only God of Israel ***
