Dear ladies and gentlemen, as you have found out on numerous very frustrating occasions, that the followers of Muhammad will resort to any underhand subterfuge, deception and mendacity to make unlearned and ignorant people believe, that the Quran was revealed to Muhammad by Allah through the agency of the angel Gabriel.
It is an undeniable fact, that every follower of Muhammad believes sincerely, that the Quran that they have today is EXACTLY the same as the one allegedly revealed to Muhammad 1400 years ago. Without a single error or alteration.
How TRUE is their PERCEPTION ?
From over 300 audio/videos and 780 chapters, I have clearly proven that in Fact and Reality, the OPPOSITE is the truth. That the Quran that the Muhammadans have, had been deliberately tamperanded with for political and sectarian reasons over a period of almost 300 years after the death of Muhammad.
There is absolutely no doubting the sincerity of their belief. This is after all, exactly what their scholars and elders have been teaching them throughout their life. Without actually researching the subject with an open mind, they shall continue to believe this. But, let us together investigate the records left to us by the scholars of Muhammadan Islam themselves, explore the veracity or lack thereof, of these statements.
At the very beginning, the Quran was being memorized and not yet compiled into a written form, especially, since as long as Muhammad was alive and allegedly receiving 'revelations' - over a very long period of 23 years - new Suras and Ayas were being added, while others were being revised, deleted and/or abrogated.
So called Believers and Unbelieving Kuffar, please be aware, that the Muhammadan Muslim records are crystal clear about the following items:
1 That Muhammad's alleged revelations occurred at different times and places throughout his 23 years of perceived mission as the messenger of Allah.
2 That different scribes or companions either memorised or scripted these verses as and when Muhammad recited them.
3 That there were DIFFERENT recitations - actually different words - used by Muhammad of the same verse to different listeners causing a lot of strife and misunderstanding amongst them.
4 That many of these alleged revelations were written on bones, chalk, leaves and other materials.
5 That hundreds of his companions memorised certain verses at different times that others did not know about.
6 That for as long as Muhammad was alive, new verses were allegedly revealed that Abrogated/ Over-ruled earlier verses or changed their instructions slightly or to the opposite.
7 That not a single follower of Muhammad had been able to memorise the whole of the verses of Muhammad's Quran.
8 That when Muhammad died, no BOOK or CODEX of the complete Quran existed or compiled by anyone.
9 That these verses were scattered on different written materials or in the memories of hundreds of different reciters with different contents of many of the same verses.
10 That during the piratical raids of Muhammad against all so called Kuffar and especially in the Apostasy wars after Muhammad's death, HUNDREDS of memorisers and reciters got slaughtered and with them many verses that they alone had knowledge of.
11 That some verses were eaten by a domestic animal during Muhammad's funeral.
12 That there were at least SIX written compiled versions - parts thereoff - of Muhammad's Quran by the several of the most eminent of Muhammad's companions such as: Ali bin abi Talib, his nephew & son in law; Abdullah bin Masud, Salim, Mu'adh and Ubai bin Ka'b who wrote down ONLY what each had heard from Muhammad at different times and places.
13 That other verses were remembered but were not later included in Uthman's compilation of his final version of the Quran.
Please be also aware that the Muhammadan Muslim records themselves attest to each and every single statement that I have mentioned so far. I shall give you the names of the authors, their books, the pages and what they asserted.
Please also remember, that these authors are Muhammadan Muslims who had absolutely no reason whatsoever, to LIE or DECEIVE future readers. They wrote down what they had gathered from their decades of dedicated and laborious research from and about Muhammad's companions or from others who were associated or related to them.
What I am about to expose to you is so SHOCKING that I shall receive the usual DENIALS of FACTS & REALITY by Muhammad's followers, even though all my disclosures are based entirely upon their own Arabic scripture (my mother tongue) and any of you can verify them on the internet at the click of your mouse.
Al Ankabut 29: 45 "Recite what is sent of the Book by inspiration to thee and establish Regular Prayer..."
Al Fatir 35: 31"That which We have revealed to thee of the Book is the Truth confirming what was (revealed) before it ..."
*** All verses in the Quran that speak of it as a Book are wrong and deceiving since the Quran was NEVER in book form while Muhammad was alive ***
Bukhari: 6:514 Narrated Umar bin Al-Khattab
I heard Hisham bin Hakim reciting Surat Al-Furqan during the lifetime of Allah's Apostle and I listened to his recitation and noticed that he recited it in several different ways which Allah's Apostle had not taught me. I was about to jump over him during his prayer, but I controlled my temper and when he had completed his prayer, I put his upper garment around his neck and seized him by it and said, "Who taught you this Sura which I heard you reciting ?" He replied, "Allah's Apostle taught it to me". I said, "You have told a lie, for Allah's Apostle taught it to me in a different way from yours".
So I dragged him to Allah's Apostle and said, "I heard this person reciting Surat Al-Furqan in a way which you haven't taught me!". On that Allah's Apostle said, "Release him (Umar) recite, O Hisham!" Then he recited in the same way I heard him reciting. Then Allah's Apostle said, "It was revealed in this way", and added, "Recite, O Umar", I recited it as he had taught me. Allah's Apostle then said, "It was revealed in this way. This Quran has been revealed to be recited in seven different ways, so recite of it whichever is easier for you."
*** With this simple but blatantly mendacious answer, Muhammad conveniently and for ever covered up the FACT that he was 'revealing' different versions of the SAME verses to different people at different times ***
Bukhari: 4:682 Narrated Ibn Mas'ud
I heard a person reciting a (Quranic) Verse in a certain way, and I had heard the Prophet reciting the same Verse in a different way. So I took him to the Prophet and informed him of that but I noticed the sign of disapproval on his face, and then he said, "Both of you are correct, so don't differ, for the nations before you differed, so they were destroyed."
*** The above hadiths clearly show that during Muhammad's lifetime, there were and Muhammad allowed, many variations regarding the reciting of the words of his Quran***
Bukhari: 6:521 Narrated Masruq
... I heard the Prophet saying, "Take (learn) the Quran from four (men): `Abdullah bin Masud, Salim, Mu'adh and Ubai bin Ka'b."
These companions of Muhammad made their own collections of the Quran and taught the Quran to their students. However the texts of these Qurans were not identical and confusion soon arose amongst the early Muslims as to what was the right way to recite the Quran. The next two hadiths give examples of this confusion.
Bukhari: 6:468 Narrated Ibrahim
The companions of 'Abdullah (bin Mas'ud) came to Abi Darda', (and before they arrived at his home), he looked for them and found them. Then he asked them,: "Who among you can recite (Quran) as 'Abdullah recites it?" They replied, "All of us." He asked, "Who among you knows it by heart?" They pointed at 'Alqama. Then he asked Alqama. "How did you hear 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud reciting Surat Al-Lail (The Night)?" Alqama recited:
'By the male and the female.'
Abu Ad-Darda said "I testify that I heard the Prophet reciting it likewise, but these people want me to recite it:--
'And by Him Who created male and female.' But by Allah, I will not follow them."
The above hadith, shows that Muhammadans from different regions disagreed as to the way a particular verse should be read and or recited. Those who learnt the Quran from 'Abdullah bin Mas'ud said surah 92:1-3 as 'By the male and the female.' while other Muslims said, 'And by Him Who created male and female.' Thus the early Muhammadans had not all memorized the Quran the same way.
We find this problem recurring again in the following hadith.
Bukhari: 6:527 Narrated Ibn Abbas
Umar said, `Ubai was the best of us in the recitation (of the Quran) yet we leave some of what he recites'. Ubai says, `I have taken it from the mouth of Allah's Apostle and will not leave for anything whatever'.
This hadith clearly shows that the Companions of Muhammad disagreed over which verses were abrogated/removed. Here we see that Ubai continued to recite the Quran with verses that the other Companions considered to have now been abrogated/removed. It is clear that Ubai refused to accept that the verses had been abrogated for he says: "I have taken it from the mouth of Allah's Apostle and will not leave for anything whatever".
The hadith then quotes a sura to explain that this was an example of abrogation. The result, however, was that the Companions recited the Quran differently, for Ubai continued to recite the abrogated verses.
The previous two hadiths record how Masud and Ubai recited the Quran differently to other Muslims. We have already seen that these two men were recommended by Muhammad as men worthy to learn the Quran from. However, since their collections of the Quran were not the same, this caused problems for the Muslims who learned the Quran from them.
The Muslim scholar Labib as-Said records that: "The Syrians," we are told, "contended with the `Iraqis, the former following the reading of Ubayy ibn Ka`b, the latter that of `Abd Allah ibn Mas'ud, each accusing the other of unbelief".
When Muhammad died, there existed no singular codex of the Quranic text, that is, there was not in existence any collection of 'revelations' in a Final Review form.
Also, there was not a single memorizer who knew all the verses of the Quran; all these verses were scattered in the memories of hundreds of Huffath/ memorisers.
Without a doubt, Muhammad failed utterly in his primary mission of giving his followers a SINGLE Authorized Scripture, because in reality he died without authenticating a unified codex of his Quran. The fact that he left his followers with SEVEN modes/versions of the Quran, speaks volumes about his failure. The consequences of this failure became paramount when his followers were reciting different versions of the alleged 'words of Allah'. This failure has endured- and continues - for the last 1400 years.
All attempts by his present followers to gloss over these facts are doomed to fail since the records of the Muhammadan scholars in the centuries after his death attest to otherwise. After his demise, and as the memorizers (Huffath) were becoming extinct through slaughter in battle or otherwise, Umar ibn al Khattab, recommended that it should be committed to writing. Abu Bakr entrusted the task to Zayd ibn Thabit of al Madina who used to be Muhammad's secretary.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.509 Narrated by Zaid bin Thabit
Abu Bakr As-Siddiq sent for me when the people of Yamama had been killed (i.e., a large number of the prophet's Companions who fought against Musailama). (I went to him) and found 'Umar bin Al-Khattab sitting with him. Abu Bakr then said (to me), "Umar has come to me and said:
`Casualties were heavy among the Qurra of the Quran (ie those who knew the Quran by heart) on the day of the battle of Yamama, and I am afraid that more heavy casualties may take place among the Qurra on other battle fields, whereby a large part of the Quran may be lost. Therefore I suggest that you (Abu Bakr) order that the Quran be collected'."
I said to Umar, "How can you do something Allah's Apostle did not do?" Umar said, "By Allah, that is a good project". Umar kept on urging me to accept his proposal till Allah opened my chest (persuaded me) for it and I began to realise the good idea which Umar had realised.
So I started looking for the Quran and collecting it from (what was written on) palmed stalks, thin white stones and also from the men who knew it by heart, till I found the last Verse of Surat At-Tauba (Repentance) with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari, and I did not find it with anybody other than him. All were brought together and a text was constructed"
So called Believers and Unbelievers, from the above quotes, four extremely relevant items can be concluded:
A)That hundreds of memorizers of the Quran died in battles and with them died forever what different verses they had memorized that only they had knowledge of.
B)That some verses were ONLY in the memory of one single reciter and no other, thus explaining so many Hadiths that speak of certain verses that were heard but were not included in the final compilation of the Quran.
C)They also show, that the pagan Arabs had not yet mastered the art of writing or the use of writing materials such as clay, papyrus, metal sheets or even skins of animals. The Arabs of the Hijaz - contrary to all the mendacities of Muhammadan propaganda - were mostly illiterate and unlearned people.
D)This hadith clearly shows that Muhammad never made a final collection of the Quran before his death, for when Abu Bakr was asked to collect the Quran into one volume he said: How can you do something Allah's Apostle did not do?
Muhammad did not make a final collection of the Quran because for as long as he was alive, more MADE to ORDER 'revelations' were concocted by him, when and as he needed them as well as the fact that there were many of his companions whom he trusted to teach the Quran who made their own collections.
Most important of all, the above hadiths prove beyond a shadow of a doubt, the utter falsity of Muhammadan claims that there were many 'memorizers' of the COMPLETE Quran. If there were such memorizers of the complete Quran, why then did they need to collect the Quranic verses from diverse and unrelated 'documents' such as leafstalk, bones, parchments as well as from the memories of so many different men?
Thus the FIRST completed collection of the manuscripts of the Quran remained with Abu Bakr till he died, then with 'Umar till the end of his life, and then with Hafsa, the daughter of 'Umar until 651AD, when Uthman bin Affan, canonized the SECOND compilation of the Quran called the Madina codex, and ordered all others (SIX other versions of the Quran) DESTROYED.
What is also blatantly problematic for the Muhammadan scholars, are the serious variations in the several extant Qurans of the time, making it impossible to tell which version is the alleged 'word of Allah', since 'his word' should have been only ONE and not several.
In fact, there were several metropolitan codices in Arabia, Syria and Iraq with many divergent readings blamed on the defective nature of Kufic script which contained no vowels. Thus the consonants of verbs could be read as actives or passives, and worse still, many of the consonants themselves could not be distinguished without diacritical marksthat were added much later.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.510 Narrated by Anas
bin Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman came to Uthman at the time when the people of Sham and the people of Iraq were waging war to conquer Arminya and Adharbijan.
Hudhaifa was afraid of their (the people of Sham and Iraq) differences in the recitation of the Quran, so he said to 'Uthman, "O chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book as Jews and the Christians did before."
So 'Uthman sent a message to Hafsa saying, "Send us the manuscripts of the Quran so that we may compile the Quranic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you."
Hafsa sent it to 'Uthman. 'Uthman then ordered Zaid bin Thabit, 'Abdullah bin AzZubair, Said bin Al-As and 'Abdur-Rahman bin Harith bin Hisham to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies.
'Uthman said to the three Quraishi men, "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit on any point in the Quran, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, the Quran was revealed in their tongue." They did so, and when they had written many copies, 'Uthman returned the original manuscripts to Hafsa. 'Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Quranic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt.
Zaid bin Thabit added, "A Verse from Surat Ahzab was missed by me when we copied the Quran and I used to hear Allah's Apostle reciting it. So we searched for it and found it with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari. (That Verse was):
'Among the Believers are men who have been true in their covenant with Allah.' " (33.23)
*** Believers and Unbelievers, please be aware that Zaid bin Thabit collected the FIRST Quran under abu Bakr and told us " till I found the last Verse of Surat At-Tauba (Repentance) with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari, and I did not find it with anybody other than him".
Yet once more, with unimaginable coincidence, at least 17 years later, while compiling the SECOND version of the Quran, he again tells us that "A Verse from Surat Ahzab was missed… So we searched for it and found it -yet again- with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari"***
Bukhari: 6:60 Narrated Ibn Az-Zubair
I said to `Uthman, "This Verse which is in Surat-al-Baqara: `Those of you who die and leave wives behind............ without turning them out,' has been abrogated by an other Verse. Why then do you write it (in the Quran)?" `Uthman said, "Leave it (where it is), O son of my brother, for I will not shift anything of it (i.e. the Quran) from its original position."
Here we see that Ibn Az-Zubair and Uthman disagreed over whether or not a particular verse should be included in the Quran. Ibn Az-Zubair believed that the verse had been abrogated and therefore should be removed from the Quran, while Uthman was insistent that the verse should remain. Uthman had his way and so this verse is in the Quran today.
Again in the next hadith we see how Uthman had control over the final state of the text of the Quran.
Bukhari: 8:817 Umar ibn al Khattab
"Allah sent Muhammad with the Truth and revealed the Holy Book to him, and among what Allah revealed, was the Verse of the Rajam (the stoning of married person (male and female) who commits illegal sexual intercourse), and we did recite this Verse and understood and memorized it. Allah's Apostle did carry out the punishment of stoning and so did we after him.
I am afraid that after a long time has passed, somebody will say, `By Allah, we do not find the Verse of the Rajam in Allah's Book,' and thus they will go astray by leaving an obligation which Allah has revealed"
It is obvious that `Umar was convinced that stoning an adulterer (married men or women) was part of the Quran and should not be removed. The modern Quran however does not contain these verses. So where have they gone? These verses must have been removed by those who were in charge of the text of the Quran. What is clear is that `Umar remembered these verses and did not think that they should be edited out while others obviously did, and so today they are not in the modern Quran"
Here we see how the problem of having different versions of the Quran was fixed. It was fixed by Uthman standardizing one version of the Quran and ordering that all others be burnt. Thus even the "seven" variations that Muhammad allowed were removed and so were the other collections made by the other Companions. Thus from then on, all oral and written traditions have had to conform to Uthman's version of the Quran.
A further serious impediment which complicated the correct compilation of the Quran is the fact that there were verses which were spoken in Madina but were included in suras which began in Mecca, and vise versa.
Let us together ponder the following:
The followers of Muhammad tell us that there were no variations between Uthman's final version and the other six that were destroyed. That they were burnt so that there would be no different recitations.
REALLY? How so?
If the scripts were IDENTICAL, why destroy any of them? After all, they allege that the errors were in the READING of the script that contained no VOWELS and NOT in the TEXT! If this was the case, how could Uthman's version - supposedly identical to the others - change an iota of the fact that they were still reading the same script without vowels?
It is evident that only because of their extreme DESPERATION to prove the impossible, that the followers of Muhammad unto this day, resort to all Subterfuge, Contortions of Logic and Fact, Mendacities, Deceptions and Illogical reasoning to cover up the crystal clear fact that the Quran that they have today is most certainly not the same as the one left to them by Muhammad 1400 years ago.
The problem that existed and persisted during the life- time of Muhammad for his followers is the fact, that for as long as he was alive, new 'revelations' - whereby the omniscient Allah was nonetheless allegedly changing his mind - were very conveniently being added to and some subtracted from the earlier ones (Abrogated and Abrogating verses which affected 71 of the 114 Suras of the Quran).
This is why at the time of Muhammad's death there existed no singular codex of the 'sacred text'. It is also reported that some major parts of a Sura were eaten by a domestic animal.
Another Sura, that of Al Rajm, was asserted by Umar ibn al Khattab to have existed but is not included in the Quran.
The final text of the Quran was actually fixed in 933AD.
Since the Quran is supposed to be the word of Allah - who is the one who allegedly also taught Moses the Torah - then the only unmistakable conclusion for the enormous inconsistencies and differences between them must be because it was the later followers of Muhammad who corrupted the Quran to suit their own agenda.
The criminal invariably projects upon his victim his own hatreds, shortcomings and lack of morality and justice; so do the Arab and Muhammadan scholars. They have conspired over the centuries - and even at the present - to control all the information that they pass on to the 'believers' by perpetuating the myth of the perfect and divine Quran contrary to the historical, philological and theological records that prove it to be otherwise.
In fact, the greatest threat to Muhammadan 'Islam' is the acquisition of knowledge, especially of the Bible, by the masses of 'believers'.
Of 114 Suras in the Quran, only 43 were not changed. All the others had verses that were either abrogated or abrogating; this means that in the course of 23 years of Muhammad's mission, the OMNISCIENT Allah changed his mind at least 71 times.
In summation, the following historical and theological facts are crystal clear and indisputable:
1) The greatest number of 'traditions' and fetishes of the 'Muslims' are nothing but a continuance, a re-packaging and 'Islamization' of pagan rites and actions that pre-existed Muhammad and his Quran.
2) Almost all the precepts and concepts of importance in the Quran have been plagiarised, plundered, pirated and/or perverted from the Hebrew Bible and Scriptures, from the New Testament and Apocrypha, from pagan Arabian religion and also from Zoroasterian religion and traditions.
Abu'l Fath Muhammad Shahrestani (479/1086-548/1153), in his valuable book on sects and religions (al Melal wa'lNihal)asserts that many of the rites and duties of 'Islam' are continuations and practices which the pagan Arabs had adopted from the Jews.
3) Even if Muhammad were illiterate (not able to read or write), does not negate his ability to compose and recite prose and or poetry. Most of the poets of Arabia were illiterate but masters of the spoken language. The oral poetic tradition of the Arabs was their greatest legacy since they left almost nothing in the form of writing thus proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that poetry and prose in Arabia was completely independent from literacy.
4) The Quran is only a tossed salad bowl of stories, concepts and precepts plagiarized, plundered, pirated and or perverted at will from the beliefs of other peoples, to suit Muhammad's agenda of inventing a suitable Scripture for his fellow pagan Arabs to equal if not rival those of the People of the Book.
No copy of any masterpiece, no matter how well done it may be, can ever equal to, let alone surpass an original.
5) The followers of Muhammad can try their worst to obfuscate, contort, pervert and twist the facts to 'prove' otherwise, but it is a Mission Impossible to accomplish. That is why when they cannot counter the truth with facts or logic, they invariably resort to violence to silence their opponents just as was done earlier by their mentor and perfect example Muhammad.
6) The so-called Arabic Quran contains at least 118 words of paramount and vital importance that are actually totally foreign and are derived from Hebrew, Aramaic, Ethiopic, Syriac, Greek, Persian and Sanskrit to name just a few.
7) Uthman's Quran (also referred to as Tashkent Quran and Osman's Koran is a manuscripted copy of the Quran), was considered to be the oldest in the world until the discovery of the Sana'a manuscripts.
Having now read many of the hadiths and other sources it is obvious that these Muhammadan claims regarding the incorruptibility of the Quran, are to put it mildly, an exaggeration and have no support at all from the authoritative hadiths. In fact the hadiths record the opposite. They say that Muhammad never standardized the Quran and allowed variation and that the early Muslims memorized the Quran slightly differently. Then Uthman and a team of others edited and standardized one version of the Quran and had all others burnt.
It is not unreasonable to assume that the collection of the Quran that Uthman made is a good record of what Muhammad recited. However, it was not the only good collection that was made, nor was it a collection made by Muhammad.
In conclusion, the followers of Muhammad, contrary to all proofs and logic, reject and deny the universal records of history, the Bible and their own Hadiths but assert and believe, that ONLY the Quran is true.
