What does the Quran mean when It Says "Allah is the Greatest of all plotters"?  Does it also mean "Allah is the Greatest of all deceivers"?

The sections of this article are:

1-  What does the Glorious Quran Say?
2-  What does the Bible say about this?
3-  Conclusion.

  

  

  

1-  What does the Glorious Quran Say?

Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 8:30
Pickthall:

[008:030]  And when those who disbelieve plot against thee (O Muhammad) to wound thee fatally, or to kill thee or to drive thee forth; they plot, but Allah (also) plotteth; and Allah is the best of plotters.

Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

8:30 واذ يمكر بك الذين كفروا ليثبتوك او يقتلوك او يخرجوك ويمكرون ويمكر الله والله خير الماكرين

There are few important points to notice here:

1-  The disbelievers and the evil ones plotted against Islam.

2-  Allah Almighty plotted on the disbelievers' plots, and turned their plots on their heads.

3-  Allah Almighty is the best of plotters.

So does this mean that Allah Almighty is the Best or Greatest of all deceivers?  The answer is a qualified yes.  Allah Almighty does not plot against Good.  Allah Almighty plots only against evil.  Therefore, Allah Almighty plots against and deceives the enemies of Allah Almighty.  This is further supported in the following Noble Verses:

"We have always sent messengers who were proficient in the language of their people, so they could explain the matter clearly. Allah guides or leads astray whomever He pleases. He is the most Powerful, the Wisest!  (The Noble Quran, 14:4)"

"Had Allah wished, He would have created you all as a single nation. But He guides or leads astray whomever He pleases. And you would very definitely be interrogated regarding everything you used to do!  (The Noble Quran, 16:93)"

So the statement that the Islam haters usually utter, "the GOD of Islam is the greatest of all deceivers", is false, because Allah Almighty doesn't deceive the Good Believers.  Allah Almighty only deceives the enemies of Allah Almighty:

  • If Allah Almighty also plots against good, then the Islam haters' statement would be true.
      
  • But since Allah Almighty does not plot against Good, then the Islam haters' general statement is false.  It is only true on them, and not on what is Good.
      
  • So yes indeed.  Allah Almighty is the Best one to deceive and misguide the doomed-to-Hell disbelievers.
  •   

      

    2-  What does the Bible say about this?

    For ample verses and details, please visit:

  • Bible defines "Lying Spirits by GOD" to mean GOD MAKES YOU LIE; you have no will (2 Samuel 12:7-12).
      
  • "Balanced Lies" Rebuttal.
  •   

      

    3-  Conclusion:

    It is very clear that Allah Almighty deceives only those whom He Wills from the disbelievers and the evil ones.  Allah Almighty does not plot against Good.  Allah Almighty only plots against the evil ones, and turns their plots on their heads.  Therefore, the Islam-haters' statement about Allah Almighty being the "Greatest of all deceivers" is false, because:

    1-  Allah Almighty doesn't plot against Good.

    2-  Allah Almighty only plots and deceives the evil ones.

    Therefore, the anti-Islamics' false statement is a lie, and it is a plot against Islam.  Islam will, as always, prevail and be victorious in the End.  The evil disbelievers will bite the dust.

    Quran Abrogations?  And can Quran and Hadiths Contradict?

    As'salamu Alaikum,

    Allah Almighty is not a deceiver.  He, however, does lead astray whom He decides to doom to Hell.  He does that but letting the doomed creation be as they want, and the Almighty sometimes even paves the way and/or helps the cursed ones to gain more and more power during their life to cause themselves to fail, and ultimately fall:

    www.answering-christianity.com/is_allah_greatest_of_all_deceivers.htm

    As to abrogation in the Glorious Quran, the very Noble Verse that you quoted proves there is no abrogation:

    ماننسخ من اية او ننسها نات بخير منها او مثلها

    "None of Our revelations do We abrogate ماننسخ من اية or cause to be forgotten او ننسها, We bring better than It نات بخير منها or a similar او مثلها" (The Glorious Quran, 2:106)

    There is no "but We substitute".  It's a mistranslation of the English for Noble Verse 2:106

    "مَا نَنْسَخْ مِنْ آيَةٍ أَوْ نُنْسِهَا نَأْتِ بِخَيْرٍ مِنْهَا أَوْ مِثْلِهَا ۗ أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
    None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten,
    but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that Allah Hath power over all things?"

    The accurate translation is:

    "None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We bring better than It or a similar...." (2:106)

      

    1-  The Glorious Quran has Laws that work for different situations.  They're not abrogations.  They're just different Laws for different situations.  Every single Noble Verse in the Quran stands.  No abrogations.  Anyone who tells you otherwise is a yapping ignorant, for that camp of ignorant can't even agree on which Verse abrogates which verse.  Nothing but conjecture and opinionated garbage.

    The Glorious Quran had been perfectly preserved and is perfectly complete:

    2-  The Glorious Quran substituted the previous Laws.  Example: The stoning of the adulterer and adulterous to death.  This is a Jewish Law for married people in the book of Deuteronomy.  The Glorious Quran substituted this with the 100 lashes Law for all situations of zina (adultery and fornication).  The Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, about stoning the married adulterer or adulterous was during the early days of Islam before the Revelation of the Noble Verses.  The Hadiths are NEVER above the Quran.  If they're both in contradiction, then it means:

    (a)-  Either the Hadith was said during the early days of Islam, when Muslims used to get their Laws from the Jews:

    ‏16:43 وماارسلنا من قبلك الا رجالا نوحي اليهم فسألوا اهل الذكر ان كنتم لاتعلمون

    [016:043]  And before thee (thee here is Muhammad) also the apostles We sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: if ye realise this not, ask of those who possess the Message فسألوا اهل الذكر.

    Here the Prophet and the Believers were Commanded by Allah Almighty to go back to the Jews' Law if they were in doubt.  The Quran mentions two THIKRS (Laws):

    1-  The Thikr الذكر of Moses.
    2-  The Thikr الذكر of Muhammad.

    There is no third Thikr.  When Islam's Thikr was incomplete, the Muslims were commanded to follow the previous Thikr for a while.  This is covered in details at:

    www.answering-christianity.com/was_muta_immoral.htm

      

    (b)-  Or the hadith is a false lie on the mouth of the Prophet, or a misunderstanding:

    What does the Glorious Quran say about lying and about taking credit and recognition for what you do not deserve?

    What does the Quran mean when It Says "Allah is the Greatest of all plotters"?  Does it also mean "Allah is the Greatest of all deceivers"?  Also, what does the Bible say about it?

    What is Taqiya?  Does Islam really permit lying?  Or is this another lie from the anti-Islamics?  Also allowed in the Bible's Old and New Testaments.  Jesus also in John 7:1-12 practiced Taqiya.

    Can a Believer be unjust and an evil doer?  What does the Glorious Quran Say about this?

    Can a Muslim purposely entice, tempt, or mislead a disbeliever into a wrongdoing?  What does the Glorious Quran say about this?

    What does the Noble Quran say about temptation in general, flirting and sexual enticement?

    What does Allah Almighty say about tumult?

    Bible Hoaxes on GOD:  Rebekah's story is a clear and indisputable proof that many of the Bible's accounts are full of hoaxes!
  • Permission by GOD to bless through lying and deceiving?? [1]  I think these are man's lies in the Bible!

    MORE LIES ON GOD: Rebuttal to Jochen Katz on FOX News' lying on their motto (Balanced Lies Rebuttal).

    Who was the sacrificed son?  Isaac or Ishmael?  Even the altered Bible thoroughly supports that it was Ishmael [1] in many passages.  And in Islam there is no "El" (God) in names as in Ishmael or Gabriel in Hebrew?  Is the GOD of Islam different?  Allah Almighty allowed for His Holy Name to be shortened (as "El" in Ishmael, and Lillah for Li-Allah in the Quran, as in Alhamdulillah) in both Islam and Judaism [1].

    Differences between the Noble Quran and Bible only prove Islam's Truthfulness and Divinity.

    GOD became concerned that the Babylonians' Tower that they were constructing will reach Him???

  • And they talk about Taqiya??
      

  • Bible says that Jews from their essence were liars.  From their "birth" they were liars the Old Testament declares them.  This is another proof that the Bible is full of man-made corruption and fabrications, especially in the Jews' ancient history and stories.  Jeremiah 8:8 is thoroughly covered here.

    Made to be prostitutes by GOD:  In 2 Samuel 12:7-12, King David's wives were turned into ***** prostitutes by GOD Almighty [1] as a punishment for David's sins with Bathsheba.  This means that GOD Almighty can create custom Laws for punishment even if they fully contradict GOD Almighty's Moral Code on morality and chastity.  Also, seduction and RAPING of virgins isn't a physically punishable crime in the Bible.  See Deuteronomy 22:25-29, Exodus 22:16-17.

      

    Jesus was tempted for 40 days and 40 nights from satan, which caused him to covet - a sin forbidden in the Bible.  Also refutation to the "satanic verses" lie against Islam.
