For those who believe in a Just God, what I am about to explain will be a vindication. For those who do not believe, it will be an interesting revelation.
For about 1250 years, the self destructive information was and is embedded in Muhammada's Quran and Sunna, but for whatever reasons, has escaped the attention or logic of billions of people.
What is remarkable, is that the first verse/ aya that was presumably revealed to Muhammad, contains the complete refutation of Muhammad's claim for prophet-hood and the alleged divine origin of his Quran.
To demonstrate this, I shall analyse the verse word by word and build up my facts step by step based entirely upon the Arabic of Muhammad's Quran, the Ahadith and his Sunna.
I would like all of you to put in your mind one of the most astonishing and revealing facts that no follower of Muhammad will ever bring to any one's attention:
That every single item recorded in his Quran and every single story told by Muhammad to his wives and companions, were never witnessed by any others besides Muhammad. Moreover, many of the most important of them, according to the Hadiths, occurred un-observed and uncorroborated by anyone else, in the dead of night. Always in the dead of night.
All that humanity has, are Muhammad's own self serving accounts, presumed to be truths, told to his wives and followers over a very long period of 23 years of Made to Order 'revelations' as, when and where he needed them to materialize.
The first verse that was allegedly revealed to Muhammad occurred when he was alone at night - of course, as always unwitnessed - in the Hira cave while he was meditating. His encounter with the angel Gabriel was both frightening and violent.
Gabriel allegedly revealed the following verses to Muhammad:
Sura Al Alaq 96:1 " Read in the name of thy lord, who created 2. Created man from a clot (of congealed blood)..."
In Arabic it is: "Iqraa bismi rabbika^allathee khalaqa 2. khalaqa^l insana min a'laqin..."
Many of the translators of the Quran both Arabs and others translate correctly the word IQRAA to READ.
Others, understanding the inherent catastrophic consequences of such a translation, insist it means RECITE.
According to the Hadiths that attempt to explain the background of this 'historic' verse, three times Gabriel repeated the instruction to READ and three times Muhammad told Gabriel that he Muhammad was ILLITERATE who cannot read!
Bukhari Hadiths 1.3; 6.478/9; 6.480; 9.111 narrated by Aisha are supposedly the only sources explaining the background for the revelation of these verses.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 9.111Narrated by Aisha
The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah's Apostle was in the form of good righteous (true) dreams in his sleep. He never had a dream but that it came true like bright day light. He used to go in seclusion (the cave of) Hira where he used to worship (Allah Alone) continuously for many (days) nights. He used to take with him the journey food for that (stay) and then come back to (his wife) Khadija to take his food like-wise again for another period to stay, till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him in it and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, "I do not know how to read." (The Prophet added), "The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read, and I replied, "I do not know how to read," whereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and asked me again to read, but again I replied, "I do not know how to read (or, what shall I read?)." Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, "Read: In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot. Read and Your Lord is Most Generous...up to...that which he knew not." (96.15)
Let us investigate the consequences of translating IQRA as either Read or Recite.
1 The case for READ~
Gabriel, according to the Quran was the one who conveyed Allah's revelations verbatim to Muhammad.
If Muhammad was illiterate, how is it possible or logical for the All Knowing Allah - if Allah is the same as the God of Abraham, Moses and Jesus - NOT KNOW that Muhammad was unable to READ?
Is it possible that Gabriel revealed the WRONG word? And if so, how is this plausible?
2 The case for RECITE~
Recite means to convey a message without reading it from a document such as singing, poetry or telling a story.
Even if Muhammad were illiterate -that is he could not read or write- this does not negate his ability to repeat a verse after Gabriel.
If Iqra means RECITE, Gabriel did NOT actually reveal anything to Muhammad to RECITE!
Muhammad's answer should hence have logically been"What should I recite"? and NOT the asinine "I cannot READ"!
Taking both situation to their ultimate analysis, one must conclude that either Allah is not God or that Gabriel is an idiot or both!
In either case, this verse and the Hadiths that explain the event are contrary to logic and theology.
Is it possible that it is correctly mentioned in the Quran but that the background to the event was altered or tampered with by Bukhari to cover up the fact that Muhammad could actually READ and that he was NOT illiterate?
The reason for this manipulation had been and continues to be the erroneous and false DOGMA that ONLY if Muhammad were illiterate could one explain the alleged perfection of the Quran since it was dictated to him by Allah through the angel Gabriel.
The answer to these points that I raise is simple when one truly studies the Hadiths and commentaries made by Muhammadan exegetes decades after his death.
Hidden in Muhammad's Ibn Ishaq's monumental biography of Muhammad:"Sirat Rassool Allah"that was translated by Alfred Guillaume as 'The Life of Muhammad' Page 106, there is a gem of a report regarding the very first and ORIGINAL version of the alleged encounter between Muhammad and the angel Gabriel, that tells us that the angel actually produced - "a coverlet of brocade whereon was some writing".
Hence, verse 96:1 can ONLY make sense if Gabriel KNEW that Muhammad could READ what was written on the coverlet.
This would obviously change the whole state of affairs - as deliberately ALTERED and FALSIFIED by the later Muhammadans - dramatically and fundamentally.
Please be aware that since Ibn Ishaq was both an Arab and a Muhammadan Muslim and was historically the nearest to the sources of information, his report should have obviously greater reliability than the ones that were concocted and MASS PRODUCED much later. He cannot be accused of fabrication as a foreigner or as an enemy of Muhammadan Islam.
When Gabriel ordered him to Read/Iqra, Muhammad asked him correctly and sensibly, " What shall I read"?.
Since the coverlet had writings on it, as Muhammad himself asserts, then it is obvious and totally rational to assume that Gabriel wanted him to read the writing on the coverlet. Why else would Muhammad, on three consecutive occasions reply by asking Gabriel "What shall I read?".
The astoundingly SIMPLE conclusion, based upon Muhammad's answer alone by replying to Gabriel with "What shall I read?" instead of the altered versions of "I cannot read", ASSERTS the fact that he COULD READ.
Other questions should be asked regarding this verse.
Since this was the very first allegedly divinely revealed verse to Muhammad, why then it is NOT in the first Sura/ Chapter where it truly belongs but is instead relegated to Sura 96?
If Muhammad was a prophet, how then was it possible that he FORGOT the date of the most momentous event of his life as asserted in the Hadiths? This would be the same as a woman who gives birth to its first child but forgets that day and date of this event!
The original story of CREATION is only mentioned in the TORAH as revealed to Moses DIRECTLY (Kalimu^Allah) and not through a second hand transmission. The Quran asserts that this was the case.
God mentions that He created mankind from the DUST of the Earth and not from either a LEECH or a BLOOD CLOT!
The answer to all these anomalies, inconsistencies, irregularities and illogic is truly simple:
Allah is Muhammad's own ALTER EGO and mouthpiece. Allah is not the God of Abraham, Moses or Jesus. Allah is actually Muhammad pretending to have been receiving 'revelations' from Allah to give his concocted verses the aura of divinity and sanctity!
Muhammad was not a prophet but a Pathological Liar, a Child Molester, a Serial Rapist, a Mass Murderer and a Charlatan as in fact the Hadiths fully demonstrate.
Muhammad's Quran is as UNGODLY as Hitler's Mein Kampf.
