Rebuttal to Craig Winn's "Prophet of Doom: SATAN'S BARGAIN" article:
The following article is a rebuttal to Craig Winn's article that is located at: http://www../chapter11.html.
Important Note to the Reader:
Craig Winn purposely twisted and modified the English translations that he used! He changes words in translations and uses non-Muslim ones. I've noticed this a lot through his translations of the Noble Verses that he used from the Noble Quran.
List of Craig Winn's fabricated lies and deliberate alteration of quotes, WITH CLEAR-CUT PROOFS!
Satan cast a false Revelation on the Messenger of Gods tongue.
The motley crew that slinked out of Mecca under the cover of darkness included Muhammad's daughter, Ruqayyah. Other notables were named slaves to the House, to Ar-Rahman, to the sun god Manaf, slave to Allah, and to Allah's daughter Al-Uzza. It was a pagan potpourri.
Muhammad was down but not out: Tabari VI:101 The Messenger remained in Mecca preaching in secret and openly, protected by his uncle Abu Talib. It was another Islamic first: a secretive prophet was being protected by a seventy-year-old pagan. When the Quraysh saw that they had no means of attacking him physically [The old guy was either formidable or the Meccans were impotent.], they accused him of sorcery, soothsaying, and madness, and of being a poet. They began to keep those away from him whom they feared might listen and follow him.
I have distilled a Best of the Meccans list of accusations against Muhammad and his claims from the hundreds that permeate the Quran. For your reading pleasure: He is liar and a magician. He is possessed by devils. He is an insane plagiarizing poet. The Meccans called him a lunatic, a farfetched forger, a fool, a specious pretender, and deceitful. The unbelievers said: He is a deceiving sorcerer, turning many gods into one deity. They saw an ulterior motive behind the Quran. It is a fabrication. They laugh at the Quran. Allah hasnt sent down anything. You are only speaking lies. This is nothing but pure sorcery. The unbelievers say, The Quran is nothing but earlier peoples lore. These are fables of antiquity which he has reinvented. What sort of prophet is this? Why was no angel sent to him? These are only confused dreams. He has invented them. Let him bring a miracle to us as the earlier prophets did. They say of the prophet, He has forged the Quran. We find him full of folly and a liar to boot.
Rather than preach salvation to his tribe, Muhammad taunted his accusers: Some of them talk ill of the Prophet. For those who offend Allahs Apostle there is a painful punishment. Anyone who opposes Allah and His Prophet will abide in hell forever. In a duet with Allah, Muhammad bellowed: my critics are: despicable men, contemptible swearers, back-biters. Theyre feeble scandal-mongers. Carried away in the moment, the god of the Quran said that his creation were: mischief mongers, faggots, apes, nail biters, donkeys, pigs, and tongue twisters. It was a war of words. The sticks and stones would come later.
Muslim apologists insist that their prophets warmongering in Medina was a result of the Meccan verbal assault. But according to the Hadith, it was Muhammad who tongue lashed first. The Meccan response was measured and reasonable. They sought peace through diplomacy and were ultimately terrorized, plundered, and conquered as a result. Their plight should scream out to us today.
The Islam vs. Pagan contest seldom rose above a war of words in Mecca. Ishaq:130/Tabari VI:101 The nastiest thing I saw the Quraysh do to the Messenger occurred when their nobles assembled in the Hijr [the standing place in the mosque of the Kaaba]. They discussed Muhammad, saying, We have never seen the kind of trouble we have endured from this fellow. He has derided our traditional values, declared our way of life foolish, abused and insulted our forefathers, reviled our religion, caused division among us, divided the community, and cursed our gods.
Allah was their most revered idol. Saying that Muhammad insulted him is an indictment of Islam. And he couldnt have reviled their religion to any significant degree because he incorporated every aspect of Qusayys scam into Islam. Therefore, the real problem lay elsewhere. This prophet made himself a societal nuisance. He destroyed traditional values, caused divisions among the people, and assailed both the living and the dead.
We have endured a great deal from him. While they were saying this, the Apostle walked up and kissed the Black Stone. Then he performed the circumambulation of the Kaaba. As he did they said some injurious things about him. I could see from the Messengers face that he had heard them. When he passed a second time they made similar remarks. When he passed them the third time, the Prophet stopped and said, Hear me, O Quraysh. By Him who holds Muhammads life in his hand, I will bring you slaughter.
The founder of Islam was performing pagan rites, kissing a rock idol and venerating a rock shrine. He had attacked the traditional values of his people, demeaned their ancestors, and caused division. He had built his religion of submission upon doctrines he had stolen from Qusayy, Hanif poetry, and Jewish scripture. And for what? So he could lay claim to Allahs Fountain of Kausarthe Kaaba Inc.
If you think my summation is too harsh, consider what just happened. After enduring years of hate speech from Muhammad, the Meccans criticized him. They accurately labeled the prophets religion plagiarized madness and sorcery. In response, the founder of Islam turned to his accusers and said, I will bring you slaughter. Not salvation, not good news, not a wonderful message from a loving God. No. I will bring you slaughter. It was Muhammads message to the world. And he performed as promised.
The Meccans were as stunned by this response to their verbal jousting as we should be today. They were in the presence of a covetous charlatan, and they knew it. Unfortunately, they didnt respond intelligently. They were wary of condemning a religion, no matter how corrupt. They were deluded into thinking that a tyrant could be appeased. As a result, the Meccans would lose everything by accommodating the evil that had grown up in their midst.
Tabari VI:102 They were gripped by what he had said. The word he used struck the people so not one could move. It was as though everyone had a bird perched on his head. Even those of them who had been urging the severest measures against him, now spoke in a conciliatory way, using the politest expressions they could muster. They said, Depart Abu al-Qasim [Muhammads real name]; for by Allah, you were never violent. At least he wasnt before he became demon possessed and poisoned by Islam.
Peace is not the absence of war; it is not obtained through accommodation. These men wanted to live in peace, so they capitulated. They strove to understand their menace, to talk nicely to their tormentor, to satiate his demands. They were politically correct and got pummeled for it. Their olive branches of kindness were turned into spears of reprisal. Within a decade or so of this peace initiative the entire Middle Eastfrom Egypt to Indiawas stung by the Islamic war machine.
Appeasing tyrants is the surest path to war. Neville Chamberlain appeased Adolf Hitler in Munich using his nicest words. He, like the Meccans, caved in to the madmans demands. The Brits gave the Nazis Czechoslovakia. The deadliest war in human history was the result.
Today, the world is trumpeting another land for peace initiative in hopes of satiating a terrorist regime. But as before, if a nation is sacrificed to a hostile doctrine, if Israel is given to Islam, the world will erupt in global war. This time the weapons are better so a billion will die. Negotiating with tyrants simply fuels their fanaticism. No matter how much one gives, it is never enough. Evil must never be allowed to fester and groweven if its called a religion.
Tabari VI:102 The Prophet left, and the next day they gathered in the Hijr, and I [Abdallah] was again present. You were talking about the unpleasantness which you endured and the things Muhammad has done, but when he said something disagreeable you shrank from him. As a result, the doves were consumed by the hawk. Ishaq:131/ Bukhari:V5B57N27 Then I saw Uqba coming to the Prophet while he was praying. He seized his robe. Abu Bakr came crying and pulled Uqba away. He said, Would you kill a man just because he says: Allah is my Lord. Then they left him. That is the worst that I ever saw the Quraysh do to him. Bakrs overreaction to the tug on his pals lapel was contrived to make sure Muslims wouldnt miss the intent of the 40th surah: challenge Islam and you die. In it, Muhammad corrupted the story of Moses to frighten the Meccans. The applicable verse is 40:38. A believer from the House of Pharaoh who had kept his faith to himself, said: Will you kill a man because he says; My Lord is Allah, when he has brought clear signs from his Lord? So as not to take this verse or surah out of context, well review it at the end of the chapter.

Tabari VI:103/Ishaq:131 Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib came with his bow slung over his shoulder. He was a great huntsman and used to go out for game with his bow and arrows. When he came back from the hunt he would not go back to his family until he had circumambulated the Kaaba. He was the strongest man of the Quraysh. A woman rose up and said, If only you had seen what your nephew Muhammad had to endure just now before you came. Abu Jahl spoke to him offensively.
Hamzah was carried away by a fury, as it was Allahs will to honor him this way. [In Islam, it is an honor to be furious.] He went off quickly, not stopping to speak to anyone. Instead of circumambulating the Kaaba, he was ready to attack Abu Jahl when he saw him. When he entered the mosque, [This is a reminder that the Kaaba was a pagan mosque, or place of prostration, before it was the center of Islamic worship. Further, the prostration prayer, Islams signature move, preceded the Quran.] he saw him sitting among the people. Hamzah raised his bow and gave Jahl a blow which split his head open in an ugly way. He said, Do you insult him when I am a member of his religion? Hit me back if you can. Before Islam, Hamzah hunted for food. After Islam he hunted men for his god. While he was but a lone terrorist with a bow, he established the pattern that would soon rock the world.
The change did not escape notice. Tabari VI:103/Ishaq:132 Hamzas Islam was complete. He followed the Prophets every command. The Quraysh recognized that by Hamzahs acceptance of Islam Muhammad had been made strong. Hamzah would protect him. Violence made a mans Islam complete. And a man made a prophet strong.
Ishaq:141/Tabari VI:104 The first to recite the Quran aloud in Mecca after the apostle was Abdallah bin Masud. One day the companions of the Prophet were assembled together [all five of them] and remarked, The Quraysh have never heard this Quran recited aloud to them. Who will make them listen to it? This is an astonishing admission. Muhammad is fifty-years old and a decade into his mission. Mecca is a tiny place, clustered around a miniscule shrine. Eighty surahs have been revealed, seventy percent of the Quran, yet the Quraysh have never heard this Quran recited aloud to them. Then what, pray tell, was the source of war of words between Muhammad and his critics? If Muhammad wasnt preaching gods word, what on earth was he saying that was so obnoxious?
Abdallah bin Masud said, I will. They said, We fear what they will do to you. What we want is a man who has a clan who will protect him against them if they seek to harm him. He [foolishly] replied, Let me do it. Allah will protect me. But alas, Allah was never in the miracle business.
Tabari didnt reference the surah Masud elected to recite. Ishaq did. I was stunned to learn that it was the 55th, Ar-Rahman. The Hadith claims Allahs protection yet Masud was singing Ar-Rahmans praises. Its little wonder the Meccans were up in arms. Muhammad was venerating Allahs House, their Kaaba, but was claiming that it belonged to a rival moon god.
Ishaq:141 The next day Ibn Masud went to the Kaaba in the late morning when the Quraysh were gathered in groups. He turned toward them as he recited: 055.001 Ar-Rahman bestowed the Quran. He created man. He has taught man eloquent speech (and intelligence). The sun and moon are made punctual, following courses, they revolve to a computation. (According to the Islamic god, the sun moves, not the earth.) Ar-Rahman created the herbs (or stars) and the trees all of which prostrate themselves.
Masud proudly proclaimed: 055.014 He created man of fermented clay dried tinkling hard like earthen ware, and created jinn from the white-hot flame of fire. How many favors of your Lord will you both (men and jinn) deny? Ar-Rahman, like Allah, made man as one would distill alcohol. 055.019 He has set the two seas [not seven] in motion that flow side by side with a barrier between them that they cannot cross. [Wrong again.] How many favors of your lord will you both deny? How many lies must the dark spirit of Islam utter before Muslims deny him?
The first Meccan Quran recital turned nasty with these words: 055.031 Soon We will dispose of you both (men and jinn) by applying Our two armies. How many favors of your Lord will you both deny? A second translation reads, We shall soon be free to turn on you, O weary caravans. Muhammad would soon prosper by raiding Meccan caravans. 055.035 There will be let loose on you both white-hot flames of fire and smoke that chokes so that you will not be able to defend yourselves. How many favors of your Lord will you both deny? Ar-Rahman makes jinn out of the same material he will use to torture men. That means the dark spirit of Islam intends to send his demons after us. And, lest we forget, this spirit considers torture a favor.
Masud continued to recite the Ar-Rahman surah to the Meccans: 055.041 The sinners will be seized by their forelock and feet. Which of the favors of your Lord will you then deny? This is the Hell the sinners called a lie. They will go round and round between its fierce fires and boiling water. Which of the favors of your Lord will you then deny? Apart from Satan, can you imagine any spirit suggesting that burning and scalding were favors?
Having sickened the Quraysh with demonic torments, Masud teased them with decadence. 055.046 For him who lives in terror of his Lord are two Gardens containing delights: shade, two fountains flowing, fruits in pairs. Reclining on carpets lined with silk brocade, fruits hanging low. In them virginal females with averted glances (desiring none but you), undeflowered by men or jinn. Is the reward of goodness aught but goodness? Ar-Rahman has just labeled decadence good, and living in terror is the path to Paradise. 055.062 And beside this, there are two other Gardens, rich green in color from plentiful watering. In them will be two springs, gushing forth, and fruits. And beautiful companions, virgins cloistered in pavilions, undefiled by men and jinn, reclining on green cushions and rich mattresses. Which of the favors of you Lord will you both deny?
I would have liked to have seen the reaction on the Meccans faces as they listened to Muhammads religious disciple recite this demonic message. Ishaq:141/Tabari VI:104 The Meccans took notice of Masud. What on earth is this son of a slaves mother saying? Then they said, He is reciting some of what Muhammad has prayed. [Not recited, prayed. These fantasies represented Muhammads cravings.] They rose up and began to hit him in the face. [So much for Allahs protection.] He continued to recite as much as Allah willed that he should, and went back to his companions with the marks of their blows on his face. They said, This is what we feared would happen to you, but he replied, The enemies of God [Ar-Rahman?] were never more despicable in my sight than they are now. If you wish, I will do the same thing to them tomorrow. They replied, No, you have done enough. Its the cause and effect of Islam. The religion causes Muslims to hate anyone who isnt a Muslim. Its a condition that persists to this day.
The Sira follows this incriminating encounter with another. Muhammad was afraid to recite the Quran in public so the Meccans eavesdropped outside his mud hut one night. Ishaq:143 When they heard the Quran they said in mockery, Our hearts are veiled, we do not understand what he is saying. There is a load in our ears. Then Allah revealed, And when you recite the Quran we put between you and those who do not believe a hidden veil. They turn in aversion. In secret counsels the mockers say, They are following a man bewitched.
The next Ishaq segment is omitted by Tabari. I can only assume that the historian couldnt find a credible supporting Tradition or he had collected enough contrary Hadiths to question its veracity. Ishaq:143 The Quraysh showed their enmity to those who followed the Apostle. Every clan which contained Muslims attacked them, imprisoning them, beating them, allowing them no food or drink, and exposing them to the burning heat of Mecca, so as to seduce them from their religion. Some gave way under pressure of persecution, and others resisted. Considering that Muhammad had threatened to slaughter the Quraysh, they may have been justified. Further, the doctrine Muhammad was espousing was corrosive. It turned peaceful men into killers.
Ishaq was able to provide only one example of abuse. Ishaq:144 A rock was put on a slaves chest. When Abu Bakr complained, they said, You are the one who corrupted him, so save him from his plight. I will do so, said Bakr. I have a black slave, tougher and stronger than Bilal, who is a heathen. I will exchange him. The transaction was carried out. Even when these boys did something right, it was wrong. Trading slaves wasnt religious, and calling a black man a heathen was racist.
Tabari VI:103 Umar bin al-Khattab [the Caliph who ruled during Islams bloodiest conquests] was a staunch and mighty warrior. He accepted Islam, as had Hamzah before him. The Messengers Companions began to feel stronger. Ishaq:155 Umar became a Muslim, he being a strong, stubborn man whose protégés none dare attack. The prophets companions were so fortified by him and Hamza that they got the upper hand on the Quraysh. We could not pray at the Kaaba until Umar became a Muslim, and then he fought the Quraysh until we could pray there. The warriors acceptance of Islam enabled the prophet to change his qiblah from faith to power, from religion to politics, from a war of words to a clash of arms. While the results of Umar aligning his sword with Muhammads mission are undeniable, one question lingers. Why did he join the fledgling force?
Did Muhammad lure Umar into Islam with promises of drunken orgies? Delights in gardens of pleasure, on couches facing one another; a cup from a gushing spring of wine, white, delicious to the drinkers. None shall be made mad or exhausted thereby. On thrones raised high, with maidens incomparable. Lo! We have formed their companions as a special creation, and made them to grow a new growth. We made them virginspure and undefiled, lovers, matched in age, for those on the right hand.
Or did Muhammad terrorize Umar into submission with his depictions of hell: Soon will I fling them into the burning Hell Fire! It permits nothing to endure, and nothing does it spare! It darkens and changes the color of man, burning the skin! It shrivels and scorches men. Let him beware! If he does not desist, We will seize him, smite his forehead, and drag him by the forelock! For the rejecters is Entertainment with Boiling Water and roasting in Hell Fire. Truly Hell is as a place of ambush, a resort for the rebellious. Therein taste they neither coolness nor any drink save a boiling water and a fluid, dark, murky, intensely cold, paralyzing, a fitting reward. They will eat thorns and fill their bellies with the heads of flaming devils. Then on top of that they will be given a mixture made of boiling water to drink especially prepared. We have prepared the doom of Hell and the penalty of torment in the most intense Blazing Fire. When they are flung in, they will hear the terrible drawing in of their breath and loud moaning even as the flame blazes forth, roaring with rage as it boils up, bursting with fury, plucking apart his body right to the skull! Eager to roast; dragged by the head, Hell shall claim all who flee.
Or do you suppose he tempted him with booty, a share in Khadijas Profitable Prophet Plan? As for the favor your Lord has bestowed upon you, Muhammad, announce it! Soon your Lord will give you so much you shall be pleased. He found you poor and enriched you. Of the bounty of your Lord let your discourse be. Muhammad claims that Allah has sent him as His Messenger with this religion so that the treasures of Chusroes and Caesar will be given to him by conquest. I want them to utter one saying. If they say it, the Arabs will submit to them and the non-Arabs will pay the jizyah tax in submission. The use of booty from the spoils of war are lawful and good. Know that one fifth of what you acquire as booty is for Allah and His Apostle. If they ask you of the benefits of accruing the spoils of war, tell them, The benefits belong to Allah and His Messenger [and will be shared with Umar]. I dont know if Umar is in Hell with Allah tormenting infidels or lounging in the Brothels of Bliss. But I do know Islam made the Islamic warrior king very, very rich!
Ishaq went to great lengths to explain Umars conversion. Ishaq:156 Umar said, I am making my way to Muhammad, the apostate who has split up the Quraysh and made a mockery of our traditions, to kill him. Your sister, Fatima, has become a Muslim so you had better go and deal with her first. Umar heard her reciting Khabbab [There is no surah by that name and it isnt referenced in the text.] as he came near the house. He said, What is this balderdash? You have heard nothing, she lied. By Allah, I have, Umar said, striking his sister in the face and wounding her. When he saw the blood, he felt sorry and asked to hear what Fatima was reciting. You are unclean in your polytheism and only the clean may listen to it. He washed his hands of the violence he had inflicted and she graced him with a little recital. The brute proclaimed: How fine and noble is this speech. Lead me to Muhammad so that I may accept Islam.
Leaving the Sira and returning to the Sunnah we discover: Tabari VI:106 The revelation from Allah was coming to the Prophet continuously, commanding and threatening those who showed open hostility to him, and vindicating him against those who opposed him. And so it would be. Reading the ninety Meccan surahs is like listening to a decade-long argument. They said, You are a lying, plagiarizing, charlatan, a fraud and a sorcerer. There is surely a motive behind all of this madness. He said, I am not a lying madman or a demon possessed sorcerer. And because you have mocked me, I will bring you slaughter. With that recap we can dispense with the remaining score of Meccan surahs and move on with the story.
At this point, Ibn Ishaq reveals a stunning temptationone which I have entitled The Quraysh Bargain. Ishaq:132-3 Utba, who was a chief, said while sitting in a Quraysh assembly, Why dont I go to Muhammad and make some proposals to him? If he accepts, we will give him whatever he wants, and he will leave us in peace. They thought it was a good idea, because if they tried to negotiate with him they would no longer be blamed for his actions. So Utba went to the Prophet, who was sitting in the mosque by himself, and said, O my nephew, you are one of us yet you have come to our people with a matter that is dividing the community. You are ridiculing our customs. You have insulted our gods and our religion. You have even declared that our forefathers were infidels. So listen to me and I will make some suggestions, and perhaps you will be able to accept one of them. The Apostle agreed. Utba said, If what you want is money, we will gather for you some of our property so that you may be the richest man in town. If you want honor, we will make you a chief so that no one can decide anything apart from you. If you want sovereignty, we will make you king. And if this demonic spirit which has possession of you is such that you cannot get rid of him, we will find a physician for you, and exhaust our means trying to cure you. For often a demonic spirit gets possession of a man, but he can be rid of it. The apostle listened patiently. Wow! The Sira is incriminating.
While Muhammad hesitated, the Meccans went on the offensivehitting every one of his hot buttons. They charged: Ishaq:134 Muhammad if you dont accept our offer then ask your Lord to give us the land and water we lack, for we are shut in by these mountains, we have no river, and none live a harder life than we do. With this they destroyed Muhammads stated justification for preaching Islam. The Meccans werent gluttonous as Muslims claim. If you speak the truth, resurrect Qusayy for us for he was a true shaikh, so that we may ask him whether what you say is accurate. The Quraysh correctly identified the true patriarch of Islam, the founder of the Kaaba Inc., and the man who invented the scam Muhammad coveted. If you do this we will believe you and know that God has sent you as an apostle as you claim.
Muhammad did nothing, so Well then at least ask your god to send an angel to confirm your depictions of paradise and give you the mansions and gold you obviously crave. If not that, then send us the Day of Doom you threaten us with, for we will not believe you until you perform a miracle. The Meccans knew that a prophet devoid of prophecies and miracles couldnt be what he claimed. Whats more, they knew that his god was powerless. Why doesnt your god help you? Didnt he know that we were going to present you with these opportunities to prove yourself? Listen, Muhammad; we know the truth. Information has reached us that you are taught by this fellow in Yemen called al-Rahman. By Allah, we will never believe in Ar-Rahman. The Meccans even knew the source of the Quranic revelations, a Hanif named after their god. Alright then, our conscience is clear. When they said this the Prophet got up and left. The Quraysh saw right through Muhammads prophetic act. They exposed him and laid him bare, just as we are doing today.
As you read these words remember that the Siras Hadith are not only considered to be divinely inspired scripture, they represent Islams most essential writings. The Sira provides the lone chronology of Muhammads words and deeds written within three centuries of his death. Ishaq:135 Muhammad, your people have made certain propositions . They asked you for things so that they might know that your position with God is as you say it is so that they might believe and follow you, and yet you did nothing. They even asked you to hasten the punishment you are frightening them with, but you could not do it. The Prophet went to Khadija, sad and grieving. Ishaq tells us that the Quraysh escalated their verbal assault, calling Muhammad a sorcererspitting and blowing, an insane poetpreaching in rhyme, and demon possessedwhispering delirium. They said that his Quran was plagiarizedfairy tales of the ancients. Yet with each new iteration, his familiar spirit had a ready Quranic verseever escalating the war of words.
One of the most bizarre facets of this new game of put up or shut up involved some Jewish rabbis from Yathrib. The Quraysh sent emissaries to test Muhammads claim that he was the last of the Biblical prophets. Were told that the rabbis laid down a challenge. Ishaq:136 Ask him about the Mighty Traveler who reached the confines of both East and West. Ask him what the spirit is. And ask him what happened to the men who disappeared in ancient days. If he does not know he is a rogue, a forger, so treat him as you will. While the Jews asked no such questions, the Meccans convinced Muhammad that they had. So Muhammad said to the emissaries, I will give you the answers tomorrow. But the Apostle waited for fifteen days without a revelation from God on the matter, nor did Gabriel come to him, so the people of Mecca began to spread evil reports. Fact is, the Meccans had fingered the Yemeni Hanif (and thus God), and our hero couldnt ask the Yathrib Jews (and thus Gabriel) because he thought that they had composed the challenge.
Left to his own devices, Muhammad didnt do very well. He said that the answers finally came to him in the form of the 18th surahaptly named The Cave. The last time he was on his own searching for god in all the wrong places, Satan had met him there. This time his spirit friend said that the Mighty Traveler was a Muslim: 018.083 They ask about Dhul-Qarnain [Alexander the Great]. I shall recite to you something of his story. We established him and gave him the means to do everything. So he reached the setting place of the sun and saw that it set in a muddy spring of hot, black water. Around it he found people. He asked if he might punish them. The story goes on to talk about extraterrestrials, mythical people, and to claim that the pagan Alexander was a Muslim. Ill present the entire story in the last chapter as it ultimately points to our destiny.
The men who disappeared, according to the Quran, were Moses and his servant. They went sailing looking for a fish and some buried treasure. The inane story unfolds at the 60th verse and continues until god sends Alexander off looking for the extraterrestrials.
The verses that precede these answers focus on Satan, hell fire, punishments, deceptions, and annihilations. I can only assume that the spirit is the Devil himself. In fact, The Cave surah ends with: We have prepared Hell for the hospitality of the infidels because they disbelieved and mocked My Signs and Messengers.
However, Ishaq believes the men who disappeared were the dwellers of the cave of Raqim. Beginning at the 18th verse, Allah claims that some men stayed in a cave for 300 years and argued about dogs. Ahmed Ali, in his translation of the Quran says that the cave is the place the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Thats hilarious in that the Qumran scrolls prove that the Quran is a lie.
What this all means is, without Jewish and Hanif inspiration, Muhammad didnt do very well. The 18th surah is the Qurans most foolish.
At this point, Tabari picks up the trail of the Quraysh Bargain. The Meccans clearly understood Muhammads motives. In one of Islams most revealing Hadiths, we discover: Tabari VI:106 The Quraysh promised Muhammad that they would give him so much wealth that he would become the richest man in Mecca [money], they would give him as many wives as he wanted [sex], and they would submit to his commands [power]. They didnt bother tempting him with an acknowledgment of his prophetic claimsby agreeing that he really was Allahs Messenger. The Meccans knew that the prophet gig was just a means to an end.
The Quraysh said, This is what we will give you, Muhammad, so desist from reviling our gods and do not speak evilly of them. This bargain was proposed on the basis of accommodating the Meccan gods. The deal was clear; the stakes were high. Sex, power, and money were being offered in exchange for total capitulation. The oneness of Allah was all that separated Muhammads Islamic doctrine from Qusayys scam. If the messenger accepted, he was through as a prophet, and Islam was finished as a religion.
Tabari VI:107 If you will do so, we offer you something which will be to your advantage and to ours. The prophet was evidently intrigued, tantalized perhaps. They held the keys to the Kaaba Inc. and were offering him a founders share. This could be good What is it, he asked. They said, If you will worship our gods, Al-Lat and Al-Uzza, for a year, we shall worship your god for a year. Once again, its both perplexing and incriminating that the Quraysh dont name Muhammads god. After all, Allah was their god. In fact, Allah was supposed to be the proud poppa of Al-Lat (the female form of Allah) and Al-Uzza.
There is but one explanation for this omission. Muhammad was still referring to his god as Ar-Rahman, the deity of the Yemeni Hanifs. Those who codified the Quran decades later simply swapped Ar-Rahmans name out of some of the later Meccan surahs and replaced it with Allah. This change is confirmed by a Hadith contemporaneous to these events: Ishaq:162 Abu Jahl met the Apostle and said, By Allah, Muhammad, you will either stop cursing our gods or we will curse the god you serve. So the Quran verse was revealed, Do not insult those [gods] to whom they pray lest they curse God wrongfully through lack of knowledge. [Quran 6:108] I have been told that the Apostle then refrained from cursing their gods, and began to call them to Allah [rather than Ar-Rahman]. The critical word is: began.
Tabari VI:107/Ishaq:165 Walid, As, Aswad, and Umayyah said, Muhammad, come and let us worship that which you worship and you worship what we worship. We shall combine in the matter and shall make you a partner in all our undertakings. [The Kaaba Inc.the legacy of Qusayys religious scam was still the principle game in town.] If what you have brought is better than what we already have, we will be partners with you and take our share, and if what we have is better than what you have, you shall be a partner with us in what we have, and you shall have your share of it. Their schemes were virtually indistinguishable. They were only squabbling over ownership.
Muhammads immediate response to the Quraysh Bargain should tell us all we need to know about Islams lone prophet. He didnt say no. He hesitated, and was clearly tempted to worship Al-Lat and Al-Uzza if it meant money, sex, and power. Let me see what revelation comes to me from my Lord [not Allah], he replied.
Although I cant prove it using the Islamic Traditions, in my opinion, Muhammad went to his aging wife Khadija and asked her what she thought he should do. After all, she had been the founder of Islamthe inspiration behind the Profitable Prophet Plan. I think Khadija scuttled the deal. More wives would have been competition. And although she would have relished the prestige of being a shareholder in the Kaaba Inc, what was she going to do with more money? She was over seventy years old and near death.
So Khadija nixed the deal: Then, the following inspiration came from the Preserved Tablet: Say: O disbelievers! I worship not that which you worship; nor do you worship that which I worship, And I shall not worship that which you worship, nor will you worship that which I worship. To you your religion and to me my religion. Sorry Tabari, I know that is what the Hadith says but it just aint so. The 109th surah, from which this revelation was quoted, was among the first handed down. It was revealed a decade before this bargain was struck. So what really happened?
Khadija died (or was killed), and Muhammad accepted the deal. The very next line in The History of al-Tabari, Muhammad at Mecca, confirms my theory: Satan Cast a False Revelation on the Messenger of Allahs Tongue. Possessed by the Devil, Muhammad chose poorly. He succumbed to his demonic urgings and began to worship Al-Lat and Al-Uzza. He was finished as a prophet.
While the Islamic spin-meisters in Baghdad tried their best to put lipstick on this camel, the whole affair was as ugly as it was deadly. No matter how valiantly they attempted to excuse Muhammads behavior, a pig in makeup is still a swine. Tabari VI:107 The Messenger was eager for the welfare of his people and wished to effect reconciliation with them in whatever way he could. It is said he wanted to find a way to do this, and what happened was as follows: Before we wallow in what follows, Id like to poke a hole in the excuse. Muhammads people were long gone. He had sent them off to Abyssinia for fear they would be seduced. And the notion of reconciling himself to the pagans is laughable. Muhammad had done nothing but harangue them for a decade now, calling them names barely suitable for print. When they teased him he said, I will bring you slaughter. Sorry, Muslim apologists, I dont think so.
The isnad, or chain of reciters, introducing the Hadith reads: Ibn Mumayd-Salamah-Muhammad Ibn Ishaq-Yazid bin Ziyad al-Madani-Muhammad bin Kab al-Qurazi: I share this because of what happened to Salman Rushdie. He wrote a novel based upon what these champions of Islam had to say. Muslims went berserk. They had Rushdies book banned and panned. They nailed Satanic Verses to crosses and burned it during hostile rioting. The Ayatollah Khomeni, the leader of the Islamic world at the time, put a fatwa on Rushdie, offering his fellow Muslims a million dollars for the writers head.
Yet Rushdie had merely exposed Islams own Traditions. So why get mad at him? Was Muhammad so perverse and Islam so corrupt that modern clerics have to hide the truth for their doctrine to survive? Apparently, yes.
This is what follows: Tabari VI:108/Ishaq:165 The Messenger saw his tribe turn on him. He was pained to see them shunning the message he had brought from Allah. So he [abandoned both his message and his god because he] longed for something that would reconcile his tribe to him. With his love for his tribe and his anxiety over this it would have delighted him if the obstacle which had made his task so difficult could be removed [so he could accept their generous offer of power, sex, and money]. The only points of contention, thus obstacles to reconciliation, were: Kaaba custodianship, the number of gods, and the top gods identity (Allah or Ar-Rahman).
So Muhammad debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then Allah revealed: By the Star when it sets, your comrade does not err, nor is he deceived; nor does he speak out of his own desire. [In truth, he did all three and was about to prove his guilt.] And when he came to the words: Have you thought about Al-Lat, Al-Uzza and Manat, Satan, when he was meditating upon it and desiring to bring reconciliation, cast on his tongue, because of his inner longings and what he desired, the words: These are exalted high-flying cranes (goddesses). Verily their intercession is accepted with approval. Simply stated, Muhammad said, I accept the Quraysh Bargain.
But at what cost? The Quranic recitals had been filled with assertions that there were no intercessors. And four gods were at least three too many for a monotheistic religion. Muhammad had therefore abandoned the central plank of his mission: There is no ilah but Allah. Islam was no longer monotheistic. Whats more, the prophets grandiose and Messianic claim of being Allahs intercessor was pummeled, stoned by a trio of rock idols. And that wasnt the worst of it. Islams lone spokesperson had just aligned himself with Satan.
Its little wonder the Ayatollah wanted Rushdies book burned. Its little wonder the Quran urges Muslims not to pry too deeply into Islam or ask questions. The truth is devastating. The Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses confirm that Muhammad was demon possessed and that the Quran was inspired to advance his personal agenda. These Hadiths prove Islam was a fraud, as counterfeit as a $3 bill. Whats more, the Profitable Prophet Plan has been elevated from highly probable to undeniable.
But the Islamic Hadith was not finished burying its prophet. Tabari VI:108/Ishaq:166 When the Quraysh heard this, they rejoiced and were delighted at the way in which he spoke of their gods, and they listened to him. While the Muslims, trusting their Prophet in respect to the messages which he brought, did not suspect him of a vain desire or slip. When he came to the prostration, having completed the surah, he prostrated himself and the Muslims did likewise, obeying his command and following his example. Now you know the reason why the world is in such a mess. A demon-possessed man sought to satiate his vain desires, and billions, failing to suspect his fraud, followed his example and obeyed his commands.
If you are a Muslim reading these words, flee this delusion before its too late. This despicable man and his demonic spirit are not worthy of your soul.
Tabari VI:108/Ishaq:166 Those polytheists of the Quraysh and others who were in the mosque likewise prostrated themselves because of the reference to their gods which they had heard, so that there was no one in the mosque, believer or unbeliever, who did not prostrate himself. Then they all dispersed from the mosque.
In the context of the Quraysh Bargain, this passage proves that Islam was nothing more than Muhammads scheme to take what rightfully belonged to others. It was his personal gateway to money, power, and sex. The Kaaba Inc.the religious scam of the patriarch Qusayywas being cashed in by a covetous and amoral man. The evidence is undeniable. Islam was a plot, not a religion. Allah and Satan were one.
Independent Islamic scholars, even those sensitive to the religion, know that this Satanic indulgence destroyed Islam. They recognize that nothing in the Quran can be trusted if the prophet cant distinguish between Godly and Satanic inspiration. And while they have a point, they miss THE point. Apart from the initial cave demon, there never was any spiritual inspiration. The Quran, cover to cover, is too foolish, violent, demented, and immoral to be Godly. The Meccans were right: it was from a madman, a plagiarizing poet, a far-fetched forger, a demon possessed sorcerer. There is surely a motive behind the Quran.
Within the context of these Traditions we must also deal with the lesser issues. The passage confirms that Allah was one of many gods. Muhammad promoted a pagan rock idol. The prostration prayer, the performance that distinguishes Muslims from other religious practitioners, was pagan too. So was the mosque, the cradle of Islamic submission. And the Kaaba, the center of Islamic obedience, was a pagan shrine. All five pillars of Islam crumbled in the wake of the prophets Satanic indulgence. There were ilahs beside Allah. Muhammad was Satans messenger. The prostration was a pagan ritual rather than an Islamic obligation. And everything was rendered naught by a devilish bargain. Even the religious tax became suspect as it was orchestrated by a prophet tempted and trumped by the love of money.
The religion of Islam died that day along with its founder, Khadija. But out of its ashes the political doctrine of Islam emerged. And while the prophet failed, the profiteer soared to ever-greater lows. Acquiescing to temptation, accepting Satans Bargain, Islam turned from gray to black. As the sun set on the pagans mooning the Meccan moon god, it also set on the religion of Islam, never to rise again.
As much as Muslims would love to absolve themselves and their prophet of the Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses by claiming that the Hadiths were unauthorized, they are unable. Both history and their cover up render their objections moot. Without the reconciliation that followed the Bargain, there was no way to explain: Tabari VI:109/Ishaq:167 The news of this prostration reached those of the Messengers Companions who were in Abyssinia. The people said, The Quraysh have accepted Islam. Some rose up to return. Then angel Gabriel came to the Messenger and said, Muhammad, what have you done? While thats what the Hadith says, the prophet first mentioned Gabriels name two years later in Medina. But thats not to say he didnt have visitors. A trio of men, Bakr, Umar, and Hamzah, took their prophet to the woodshedor at least thats where they would have taken him if Mecca had wood.
Islams dark spirit was quoted saying: Ishaq:166 You have recited to the people that which I did not bring to you from Allah, and you have said that which He did not say to you. The Messenger was grieved and feared Allah greatly. So Allah [not Gabriel] sent a revelation to him, consoling him and making light of the affair [of worldly bargains and Satanic indulgences]. He informed him that there had never been a prophet or messenger before who desired as he desired and wished as he wished but that Satan had cast words into his recitation, as he had interjected them on Muhammads tongue and into his desires.
To hell with truthliterally. Desperate to save his prophetic mission, Muhammad retreated to familiar ground. He claimed that he was as covetous, immoral, demented and ill-advised as every other prophet. He was just dabbling in a little demonic delusion to satiate his cravings for power, sex, and money. It was no big deal.
Only the Jewish scriptures couldnt bail him out this time. Neither the Torah nor the Talmud contained devilish tales that could be twisted to salvage his sorry soulso none were given. There were no names dropped, Biblical or otherwise. Muhammad was on his own. No other prophet had ever desired and wished as he had desired and wished.
The founders of Islam said: Ishaq:166 Then Allah annulled what Satan had cast, and established his verses by telling him that he was like other prophets and messengers. Muhammads lord revealed: Every Messenger or Prophet before you recited the message Satan cast into his recitation. Allah abrogates what Satan casts. Then Allah established his verses. Allah is Knower, Wise. [Quran 22:52]
One lie has been refuted with another. The 22nd surah would not be revealed for another decade. In fact, it was one of the final Medina surahs. But by reciting it, Muhammad destroyed his only alibidenial. Now that the Quran has verified the Satanic Verses, Muslims cannot whisk them under the carpet without impugning Allahs credibility along with Muhammads.
Lets take a quick look at the surah to better understand Muhammads mindset. But so as not to compound the prophets error and take the passage out of context, I want you to know that the 47th verse of this late surah speaks of Allahs intended punishment on the Day of Doom. The 48th is about Allah overtaking townships, the 49th speaks of warnings, the 50th forgiveness, and the 51st demeans the inmates of the flaming fire. Somehow that brings us to: 022.052 Never did We send a messenger or a prophet before you, but, when he framed a desire, Satan threw some vanity into his desire: but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws in, A second translation reads: He recited (the message) Satan proposed. But Allah abolishes that which Satan proposes. Another claims: Satan made a suggestion respecting his desire; but Allah annuls that which Satan casts, And we have: whose recitations Satan tampered with, yet Allah abrogates what Satan interpolates; and Allah will confirm His Signs/Revelations: for Allah is all-knowing and wise.
It was such a devilishly delicate matter, so everyone seemed to have a little different take on what Allah allegedly revealed, albeit ten years late. But no matter how you slice it, the Quranic excuse confirms that the Satanic Verse episode actually occurred. The Hadith cannot, therefore, be unauthorized. Muhammad is said to have allowed Satan to throw some vanity into his desires, (The Quraysh Bargain) and to have allowed Satan to tamper with the recitations (The Satanic Verses). Allah then canceled Satans toss, abolished the Devils proposal, annulled Satans cast, or performed an abrogationthe ultimate miracle of the Quran. He never denied the Quraysh Bargain or the Satanic Verses. Therefore, Muslims cant either.
Allah abrogating the Devil aside, the Quranic justification for the Satanic Verses ends with this treasure of spiritual inspiration: 022.053 That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan, the Devils proposals, but a trial and temptation for those in whose hearts is a disease. Verily the wrong-doers are in a schism. And those on whom knowledge has been bestowed may learn that the (Quran) is the truth from your Lord, and that they may believe therein, and their hearts may submit lowly before it, for verily Allah is the Guide of those who believe, to the Straight Way. Muhammad succumbs to temptation, sides with the Devil, and its everyones fault but his own. His indulgence was convoluted into a trial for the infidelsour schism. Then, after saying that Satans proposals often slip into scripture, we are asked to trust the Quran, to submit lowly before it. While this is revolting, it is also convicting. Muslims who try to deny the existence of the Satanic Verses must deny the Quran, for it clearly acknowledges them.
That leaves Islam in an impossible position. Muslims must either admit that Muhammad was a power-hungry, money-grubbing, sex-crazed charlatan in cahoots with the Devil, or they must deny the validity of the Hadith and Quran. One leaves them without a prophet, the other without a god. Either way, they no longer have a religion.
Tabari VI:110 Thus Allah removed the sorrow from his Messenger, reassured him about that which he had feared, and cancelled the words which Satan had cast on his tongue, that their gods were exalted high-flying cranes (goddesses) whose intercession was accepted with approval. He now revealed, following the mention of Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat, the words: are yours the males and his the females? That indeed is an unfair division! They are but names which you and your fathers have given, to the words: to whom he wills and accepts. [Quran 53:21]
Not only does this mean that Allah copy-edits Satan, it proves Muhammad didnt know where he wasor even who said what to whom, when. The aforementioned quote was from the 53rd surah, which came before the 22nd. In fact, the 53rd was the forty-sixth surah handed down. It preceded the Satanic event by many years. The 22nd surah was 107th out of 114 in order of revelation. The Hadith says that these spiritual revelations followed one another, yet that is impossible. Not only is their order reversed, they are separated by a sea of words, hundreds of miles, and a decade of time.
So Islam has a fatal problem. If the rationale for dismissing the Satanic Verse/Quraysh Bargain episode isnt valid, or even plausible, Muhammads motivations for establishing the submission religion were about vain desires, not godly revelations. There is no way for Muslims to differentiate between spiritual guidance and satanic deceptionan acute problem considering how much of the Quran is fixated on Satans realm, pain, and punishment. Whether the Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses occurred or not, the Quran cannot be trusted, for it claims they did. Further, a perfect and eternal tablet cannot be out of order, inverted, or grossly disjointedespecially on an issue of this magnitude.
The entire validity of Islam pivots around the Satanic Verse/Quraysh Bargain. If Muhammad was enticed by sex, money, and power and capitulated, as these Hadiths testify, Islam is finished. The credibility of its lone prophet is tarnished beyond redemption. His motivations are exposed for all to see. As a result, Qusayy becomes the founder of Islam; Muhammad is simply a self-serving promoter. And Khadijas Profitable Prophet Plan suddenly becomes the only viable explanation.
More devastating still, these events do not stand alone. Muhammad admitted that Islam was designed to enrich himself at the expense of others. We have examined his confessions. And his behavior from this point on, as chronicled by the Hadith, becomes entirely focused on sex, power, and money. As for Satan, Muhammad admitted being demon possessed. According to the Quran, his neighbors recognized the signs, according to the Quran. They even offered to help him exorcise his demons.
The fact that Muhammad admitted to having been inspired by Satan has caused many to say that Islam is Satanic, and not without just cause; the evidence is overwhelming. The symbols used throughout the Islamic scriptures are from the Occult. A snake, the personification of Satan, led Abraham to the Kaaba and revealed its foundations. A snake is the only creature said to have lived in the Kaaba. The darkened or crescent moon, another Satanic symbol representing counterfeit light, is the religions logo. Allah was a moon god. He swore by the moon. His stone was black. The darkness of night was the best time to worship him and recite his message. The Quran was endorsed by jinn, demons from Satans tribe. Muhammad listened to soothsayers. He believed in magic spells. An occultist saved his fathers life; another wanted to lay with him. Even the seal of prophethood on Muhammads back was said to look like an applethe image of Satanic temptation. And Satan played a starring role in the Quran, being named ten times more often than Muhammad.
Then theres the Qurans depiction of Allah. He spends time in Satans realm, tormenting the inmates of hell. He is never shown playing with the virgins in paradise. Allah, like Satan, is sadistic. He leads men astray, shackles them, and drags them into hell, where hes personally involved, using their bodies as fagots for his fires. He turns men on a spit, makes them eat thorns, and pours boiling water on them for what he calls their entertainment.
Some will protest that the same book and prophet call Allah merciful, and that they claim Satan to be their foe. But that is the greatest proof of all. Satan never identifies himself; he is the master of camouflage. The Quranic orders to crucify unbelievers and wipe infidels out to the last, followed by Allah is merciful and kind, is perfectly transparent. Its exactly what the Devil would doappear divine while inspiring devilish behavior. In fact, the behavior in Allahs heaven would lead men to the Biblical hell. Satan is the master of deceit. Black is white, the lie becomes true, and everything leads away from a relationship with the one true God.
There are but three differences between Satan and Allah. And those differences cause me to believe that Islam wasnt wholly Satanic. Satan is real. He is powerful and brilliant. Allah was imagined. He was impotent and foolish. Much of Islam was Muhammads doing. He is to be despised, not pitied. He, like the demonic spirit that inspired him, must be exposed and rebuked.
The Hadith claims that Quranic remedy for Muhammads Satanic indulgence is in the 53rd surah. Lets see if Team Islam gets itself out of trouble or if it digs itself in deeper. The Star is named after Lucifer. 053.001 I call to witness the Star when it dips [a.k.a., the Morning Star]. Your Companion (Muhammad) is neither confused, deceived, nor misled. Nor does he speak out of (his own) desire [unless he is tempted with money, sex, and power]. It is a revelation revealed, He was taught (this Quran) by the Supreme Intellect (Gabriel [actually Lucifer]), One free from any defect in body or mind: for he (Gabriel) rose and became stable (in stately form), clear to view. While he was in the highest part of the horizon, then he approached and came closer, then he prostrated. He was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer. The claim that he bowed is telling. Neither Gabriel nor Lucifer would have bowed to any man so Muhammad is adlibbing here.
Since the Hadith says Gabriel was the source of Quranic inspiration, Islam has tumbled into the abyss no matter how this verse is interpreted. Bukhari:V1B1N4-5 Allahs Apostle used to listen to Gabriel whenever he came, and after his departure he used to recite the Quran as Gabriel had recited it. Gabriel used to meet him every night to teach him the Quran. But we have been told that Allah was the Supreme Intellect, that he was Most Wise, All Knowing, and that he had no partners. Since Allahs Gabriel would never claim a superior position to Allah, this cannot be Gabriel. So who might it be?
Here are some clues. The surah is named after Lucifer, and its presented in conjunction with the Satanic Verses. By way of witness, the Star is calling himself the Supreme Intellect, one free from any defect in body or mind. The only angel who considered himself to be superior to God was Lucifer. For such blasphemy, Lucifer was thrown out of heaven. So now he says that he not only landed on his feet in perfect stately form, he has risen. As clearly as words allow, he has just told us that he has fulfilled Biblical prophecy and transformed himself into an angel of light to deceive a gentile messenger with a new gospel and prostration. (Youll find a complete analysis of Isaiahs and Pauls prophecies and their Islamic fulfillment in the Mein Kampf chapter starting on page 380.)
The Satanic Verse goes on to say: 053.010 So He did reveal to His slave whatever He revealed. The (Prophets) heart did not falsify what he perceived he saw. Will you then dispute with him about what he saw? For indeed he saw him [him who] at a second descent. [Oops. A descent is a journey down.] Near the Lote Tree beyond which none may pass. Near it is the Garden of Abode (the Seventh Haven). [Therefore, Muhammads heaven is down, not up.] When that covered the Lote Tree which did cover it. [Say what?] The sight turned not aside, nor did it go wrong! [At least I perceived I saw him. Why dont you believe me?] Indeed he did see of the greater signs of his Lord! Methinksno, meknowshe doth protest too muchespecially since we are about to enter the realm of the Satanic Verses and pagan gods.
053.019 Have you then seen or thought upon Al-Lat and Al-Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs), and considered another, the third (goddess), Manat (of the pagan deities)? Manat was an afterthought because she was not part of the Quraysh Bargain.
Now, for Allahs copy-edits: What! for you sons, the male sex, and for Him, daughters, the female? Are yours the males and His the females? Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair! Muhammad just jumped from the Devils frying pan into the hell fires of sexism and discrimination. He is saying that Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat cant be Allahs daughters nor goddesses because they are girls. In plain English: It would be an injustice for men to have sons and gods to have daughters because women are worthless. Its little wonder that the Islamic politicians and clerics who depend on Islam for their status, power, and wealth threaten to kill anyone willing to expose this nonsense.
053.023 These are nothing but names which you have invented, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. Yes they are names, names given to them by Muhammads forefathersjust like Allahs name.
Projecting ones flaws onto an opponent is standard political fare: They follow nothing but conjecture and what they themselves desire! Whereas guidance has come to them from their Lord! Nay, shall man have anything he hankers after, whatever he covets? It seemed to work for Muhammad. The career move from prophet to profiteer would satiate his every craving. For example, when Muhammad wanted more women, Allah said: 033.051 You may have whomever you desire; there is no blame.
Fortunately, we have ratted him out. This surah is as transparent as it is incriminating. 053.026 And there are many angels in heaven whose intercession does not avail except after Allah has given permission to whom He pleases and chooses. Those who believe not name the angels with female names. This is Quranic waffling. Muhammad is trying to please both Meccan and Muslim. Hes saying that the female goddesses could be angels, and that Allah might consider allowing them to be intercessors after all.
The next eight verses can be summarized by: The Meccans know nothing and want everything and Muhammad knows all and wants nothing. Then 053.036 Nay, is he not acquainted with what is in the Pages (of the Books) of Mosesand of Abraham who fulfilled all that? Muhammad is admitting that the Torah was the source of his inspiration, but he doesnt know much about all that.
A dozen verses ramble nowhere with lines like: It is He who makes you happy and morose, before heading back into the world of pagan astrology and mythological people. 053.049 He is the Lord of Sirius (the Mighty Star the pagan Arabs used to worship). It is He Who destroyed the (powerful) ancient Ad (people) [who never existed], and (the tribe of) Thamud He spared not; And before them, the folk of Noah, for that they were (all) most unjust and rebellious; and He destroyed the Overthrown Cities (of Sodom and Gomorrah). [Allah didnt know their names but the translator did, so he helped god out.] So there covered them that that which did cover (making them ruins unknown). The writing quality is as impoverished as the message.
The Bible says that the ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah will serve as visual confirmation of Yahwehs judgment and salvation. The Quran says that the ruins are unknown. Since archeologists have found Sodom and Gomorrah, their brimstone should serve as a visual confirmation that Allah is a liar. And please dont be troubled by the slur. Now that we know that Allah was modeled after Satan, its a compliment.
053.056 This is a Warner, of the Warners of old! The threatened Hour is nigh. None besides Allah can remove it. Do you then wonder at this recital? And will you laugh at it and not weep, wasting your time in amusements? [Thats a hoot. With countless wives, sex slaves, and child concubines, Islams prophet was the king of frivolity.] So fall you down in prostration to Allah, and serve [me]!
Since neither the 53rd nor 22nd surah redeemed Muhammad, we are left with the Profitable Prophet Plan being the only viable explanation for Islam. Tabari VI:110 When Muhammad brought a revelation from Allah canceling what Satan had cast on the tongue of His Prophet, the Quraysh said, Muhammad has repented of [actually, reneged on] what he said concerning the position of our gods with Allah. He has altered [the bargain] and brought something else. Those two phrases which Satan had cast on Muhammads tongue of were in the mouth of every polytheist. They became even more ill-disposed and more violent in their persecution of those of them who had accepted Islam and followed the Messenger. The pagans had the prophet on the ropes and they knew it. Not only had he lied and broken a promise for personal gain, he had destroyed his credibility and abandoned the central pillar of his doctrinethe oneness of a spirit that only spoke to him.
The Muslims who had left Abyssinia [Ethiopia] upon hearing that the Quraysh had prostrated themselves with the Prophet, now approached. When they neared Mecca, they learned that the rumor of the Meccan people accepting Islam was false. They returned to their families and said, You are more dear to us [than Islam, is the implication]. The people reversed their decision . Considering the distances, and the speed upon which news and people traveled, Muhammad may have gone as long as a year before he bailed out on the Quraysh Bargain and Allahs little girls. The indulgence cost him most of his converts.
This admission of failure is followed by a second variant of the Satanic Verses. It ends with this admission: The Messenger said, I have fabricated things against Allah and have imputed to Him words which He has not spoken.
The Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses conclude my case against the religion of Islam. As I promised to demonstrate, the doctrine has completely destroyed itself. Yet the rest of the story is both entertaining and foreboding. While these confessions from Muhammad and Allah enable us to close the books on the religious scam, accepting their guilty pleas, a new scam is about to unfold. This one is political, and this one prevailed.
- Y V Z M
Khadijas death (or murder) was followed by the passing of the prophets protector, uncle Abu Talib. With them gone, Muhammad spiraled out of control. He became ever more paranoid, delusional, and demented.
With his Kaaba now unquestionably pagan, the prophet desperately needed a new Qiblah. So he imagined himself flying a Buraq to Jerusalem. With his aged sex partner gone, he needed young love. So the fifty-year-old prophet married a six-year-old girl. With his protector gone, he needed a new show of arms. So he promised some pagans paradise in return for the protection Pledge of Aqabah. With his audience tainted, he needed a new pool of potential victims. So he picked up his tent and hightailed it to Yathrib. And because the prophet had left the strong arms of Umar, Hamzah, and Bakr out of the Quraysh Bargain, they ultimately persuaded him to renege on the agreement. So he dumped the goddesses and became a pirate. Muhammads last year in Mecca was mayhem and madness.
Tabari VI:115 The deaths of Abu Talib and Khadija were a great affliction to the Messenger. After the death of Abu Talib, the Quraysh went to greater lengths in molesting him than they had ever done during his lifetime. One of them even poured dust upon his head. The Prophet said, The Quraysh never did anything unpleasant to me until Abu Talib died.
Islams prophet needed someone to protect him from all the verbal abuse. Ishaq:192 When Abu Talib died, the Messenger went to Taif to seek support and protection against his own people. The Thaqif were the chiefs and nobles of the leading tribe in Taif. He spoke to them about the requests which he had come to make, (that is,) that they should come to his aid in defense of Islam and take his side against those of his own tribe who opposed him. If Allah were really a god do you think Muhammad would have asked pagans from a neighboring town to defend him? But what if Islam were really a political doctrine designed to suppress and enrich? Would a failed profiteer ask a Meccan rival to join his enterprise? The endeavor might at least make sense under those circumstances.
But the Thaqif were as unimpressed with Muhammad as were the Quraysh. Tabari VI:116/Ishaq:192 One of them said, If Allah has sent you, I will tear off the covering of the Kaaba. Another said, Couldnt God find somebody better than you to send? The third added, I shall not speak to you, for if you are Allahs messenger as you say, youre too important for me to reply to, and if youre lying, youre too despicable to address. Muhammads motivations were so transparent the Thaqif were instantly convinced he was a charlatan. The combination of the Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses were devastating to Muhammads, Allahs, and Islams credibility.
Muhammad left them, despairing of getting any good out of the Thaqif. The fact he couldnt convert them to Islam and save their souls was unimportanthe despaired because he couldnt get anything from them. I have been told that he said to them, If that is your decision, keep it secret and do not tell anyone about it, for he did not want his tribe to hear about this matter and be emboldened against him. A prophet begging pagans for protection was nearly as embarrassing as a prophet patronizing pagan deities for sex, power, and money. Its little wonder our desperate profiteer was squeamish about any of this getting out.
However, they did not comply with his request, and incited against him their ignorant rabble who reviled him, shouted at him, and hurled stones until a crowd gathered and forced him to take refuge in a garden a long distance from town.
Huddling in the garden, Muhammad claims a Christian came to his aid, handing him some grapes. When the quivering prophet took them he said, In the name of Allah, and then ate. Addas looked him in the face and said, By Allah, these words are not used by the people of this country. This deception is no more credible than any of the other Christian endorsements of Islam. Ilah was the Arabic word for God. And no one was going to confuse Yahwehs name and character with Allahs name and nature. Even the Taif pagans knew Allah. Whats more, three pages earlier, another Hadith ripped this notion to shreds. The pagans in Mecca were said to have posted a document in the Kaaba which began, In your name, O Allah.
Muhammad said, From what country do you come, Addas, and what is your religion? He replied, I am a Christian, from the people of Nineveh. Nineveh, after being reprieved by Jonah for a hundred years, rebelled again and was destroyed a thousand years earlier. But the error is not without merit, for it explains the reason behind this fable. Muhammads journey to Taif is being recast as heroic and godlyjust like Jonahs prophetic mission to Nineveh. The Messenger said, From the town of the righteous man Jonah the son of Matta? Jonah was from the Nazareth area in Israel. The Assyrian capital was hardly his town. He despised the place. Whats more, his fathers name was Amittai, not Matta.
How did you know about Jonah the son of Matta? he asked. The Messenger replied, He is my brother. He was a prophet and I am a prophet. [The truth is he heard about him from Zyad.] Addas bent down before the Messenger [Prostration to prophets isnt Christian behavior.] and he kissed his head, his hands, and feet. The story goes on to say, Muhammad has told me something which none but a prophet knows. If thats true, how did Addas know it? By presenting us with this confirmation Muslims are actually confirming that they have lost the ability to reason.
Now that we have a Christian endorsement, how about another from Satans tribe, the jinn? Tabari VI:116/Ishaq:193 When the Messenger despaired of getting any positive response from the Thaqif, he left Taif to return to Mecca. When he was at Nakhlah, he rose in the middle of the night to pray, and, as Allah has told [in the Quran], a number of the jinn passed by. Ishaq says that he was told that there were seven jinn from Nasibin of the Yemen.
Ishaq continues: They listened to him, and when he had completed his prayer they went back to their people to warn them, having believed and responded to what they had heard. According to the Quran, jinn arent people. They are invisible spirits that lead men astray, members of Satans tribe; theyre made of fire like that found in hell. Allah mentioned their story when he said: 046.029 Behold, We turned towards you (Muhammad) a company of Jinn who wished to hear the Quran: when they stood in the presence thereof, they said, Give ear!
For the third in a series of demonic endorsements: 046.030 We have heard a Book revealed after Moses, confirming what came before it: it guides to the Truth and to a Straight Path. O our people, hearken to the one who invites (you) to Allah, and believe in him. He will forgive you your sins [The uncapitalized him in the clause believe in him is in reference to Muhammad, therefore elevating him from messenger to Messiah. This is confirmed in the next line, which says that he, as in Muhammad, will forgive sins.], and deliver you from a Penalty Grievous. If any does not hearken to the one who invites (us) to Allah, he cannot frustrate (Allahs Plan) on earth, and no protectors can he have besides Allah: such men (wander) in manifest error. Yet again, Allah is the Demonic Lord.
Tabari VI:118 The Messenger came back to Mecca and found that its people were more determined to oppose him and to abandon his religion, except for a few weak people who believed in him. Just when you think that the Islamic Traditions have pounded the final nail into Muhammads prophetic coffin, they find another. Following the Quraysh Bargain, the Satanic Indulgence, the Pagan Protection Fiasco, and the Jinn Endorsement, were told that Muslims rejected Muhammad. Imagine that. They abandoned his religion, except for a few weak people. Ten years into Muhammads mission the score is: Islam 10, Pagans 4,990.

Following the Satanic Verses, Allah was enshrined as Islams god. The 40th surah, aptly named The Forgiver, is typical of those revealed during the late Meccan period. 040.001 Ha Mim. (These letters are one of the miracles of the Quran and none but Allah understands their meaning.) The revelation of this Book is from Allah, Exalted in Power, the All-Knower, The Forgiver, the Accepter, the Severe in Punishment.
Now that we have been properly introduced, its time to get down to businessAllahs business. 040.004 None can argue or dispute about the Signs of Allah or His Revelations but the Unbelievers. Islamic states make it a criminal offense for anyone to argue or dispute anything pertaining to Muhammad, Allah, the Quran, or Islam. The penalty for expressing such an opinion is death. Simply stated: Islam is the least open, least tolerant, dogma ever conceived.
Let not their strutting about or their turn of fortune deceive you (for their ultimate end will be the Fire of Hell)! This must be the verse Islamic warlords quote to quell their subjects today. Sure those Western democracies are prospering while we live in the squalor of Islam. But dont let their good fortune deceive you into believing their success and our failure is a result of our religions moral poverty. No, never. It couldnt be. Allah would never harm you.
Freedom obliterated, political correctness imposed, it was time to corrupt a Bible story to make the Meccan rejection of Muhammad, seem somehow prophetic. 040.005 Before them, folk denied, the People of Noah, and the Confederates (of Evil) after them; and every nation has plotted against their prophet, to seize and destroy him. There is no record of an Islamic prophet coming to any nation, much less every nation. (Saudi Arabia didnt became a nation until 1932 when the British elevated a warlord to king.) They disputed by means of falsehood to condemn the truth. So I [first person] seized and destroyed them! How (terrible) was My punishment! In this way the sentence [behavior] of your Lord [The speaker has returned to third person in mid-thought.] against the disbelieving infidels was justified. They will be the inmates of the Hell Fire! The change of speaker that permeates the Quran is important. The voice is confused because the real source was confused. Muhammad didnt know if he should steal his scripture from Qusayy, Zayd, or Mosesor simply claim credit for himself.
040.007 Those (angels [demons]) who sustain the Throne and those around it sing praise to their Lord and believe in Him; and ask forgiveness for those who believe: Our Lord! Your reach is over all things, in mercy and knowledge. Forgive those who repent and follow Your Path. Save them from the torment of the blazing fire! Grant that they enter the Gardens of Eden. The Quran doesnt explain the basis for forgiveness. In the religions upon which Islam was based, an atoning sacrifice is required. It is the same with all rational societies. Commit a crime and a judge will require you to sacrifice your money, your freedom, or your life, depending upon the severity of the offense. The only sacrifice in Islam is an inducementits as if God can be bribed, his favor bought. So in Islam, sin is without consequence, and the result is chaos. When forgiveness is capricious, anarchy reigns. This oversight is one of many reasons Islam is impoverished. It explains why Islamic states require tyrannical oppression to maintain a semblance of order.
With predestination there is no choice; and without choice, what follows makes no sense. 040.009 And ward off from them ill-deeds; and he from whom You ward off ill-deeds that day, him verily have You taken into mercy. That is the supreme success.
Destined to hell: 040.010 Lo, those who disbelieve will be informed by proclamation: Verily Allahs abhorrence is more terrible than your aversion to yourselves. Allah abhors men. Another translation reads: Allahs hatred of you is terrible, seeing that you were called to the Faith [of submission] and you refused. Its yet another sign that Allah is not Yahweh. The God of the Bible abhors deception, evil, false gods, and false religions, but he loves meneven men and women caught in deceptive, evil, and false doctrines. So were dealing with Satan here.
The abhorred inmates of Allahs Hell: 040.011 will say: Our Lord! [which would make Allah available in Hell and the Lord of Hell] Twice have You made us die, and twice have You made us live! Now we have recognized our faults. Is there any way out (of this fire)? (The answer will be:) This is (your plight) because, when Allah was invoked as the Only (object of worship), you rejected (Islam), but when partners were joined to Him, you believed! Translated into English this means: When Muhammad accepted Allah and discarded Ar-Rahman, and when he promoted Allahs little girls to goddesses, his adversaries believed. But the non-monotheistic Satanic indulgence didnt work out so, ever the hypocrite, Muhammad says that if anyone follows his example, theyll burn in hell.
040.013 It is He Who shows you his Ayat (Signs and Proofs). According to the Quran, there were no miraclesever. Allah never so much as rolled over. However, the Hadith contradicts Allahs Book, and says: Bukhari:V4B56N830-1 The Meccan people requested Allahs Apostle to show them a miracle, and so during the lifetime of the Prophet [they havent a clue as to when] the moon was split into two parts. On that the Prophet said, Bear witness [to my god]. Since there is no evidence to corroborate fanciful tale, Im surprised Muslims dont claim that putting the moon back together as if it had never been apart was a miracle, too.
Now that Allah is the spirit of Islam, its time to elevate his status. 040.014 So call you (O Muhammad) upon Allah, making (your) worship pure for Him (in obedience), even though the disbelievers may detest it. (He is the) Owner of High Ranks, Owner of the Throne. By His Command does He send the (inspiration) to any of His slaves he pleases, that it may warn (men) of the Day of Mutual Meeting. If this is scripture, the perfect word of god inscribed on an eternal tablet, why must so many words be added to the text for it to even approach being intelligible?
040.016 The Day whereon they will (all) come out of their graves: not a single thing of them is hidden. Who will be in control that Day? Allah, the One, the Irresistible! God would not ask such a question or answer it so absurdly. The spirit depicted in these scriptures is hardly irresistible. Another translation, adds: (Allah Himself will reply to His Question) A third, however, ends more in keeping with Allahs demeanor: Allah, the Subduer (of all).
040.017 This day every person shall be rewarded for what he earned; no injustice (shall be done); surely Allah is quick in reckoning. With the pseudo-religious stuff out of the way, its time to get mean: Warn them of the Day of (Doom) that is drawing near, when hearts will jump up and choke their throats, filling them with anguish. And they can neither return their hearts to their chests nor throw them out. No friend nor intercessor will the disbelievers have. (Allah) knows of (the tricks) that deceive with treachery, and all that the bosoms conceal. Allah continues to be the master of deceit.
040.021 Do they not travel through the earth and see the end of those before them? They were superior to them in strength, and in the traces (they have left) in the land, yet Allah seized and destroyed them, and they had no one to defend them against Allah. That was because their Messengers kept bringing them Clear (Signs and Proofs) (of Allahs Sovereignty), but they rejected them: So Allah seized and destroyed them: for He is Strong, Severe in Punishment and Retribution. Allah is the god of seizures, destruction, punishment, and revengenot love. Sure sounds demonic to me.
All right, enough with the pain and punishment. Its time to indulge in Allahs other hobbiesplagiarism and self-delusion. 040.023 We sent Musa (Moses) with Our Signs and Proofs and an authority manifest, a clear warrant to Firon [Pharaoh], but he called (him) a sorcerer telling lies!...Now, when he brought them the Truth from Our presence, he said, Slay the sons of those who believe with him, and keep alive their females, but the plots of unbelievers (end) in nothing but errors (and delusions) in the state of perdition!... An ellipsis is used to let readers know something has been omitted something from the text. The ellipses ( ) found in this passage are in the Quran translations, suggesting Allah left something out of his perfect and complete (albeit plagiarized and twisted) revelation. I have a theory. The Islamic god couldnt read or write any better than his prophet so he didnt know this story well enough to retell it credibly.
The liberation of the Jews from Egypt is faithfully recorded in the book of Exodus. Proven accurate by archeologists, it has endured unaltered since 275 B.C. when scholars in Alexandria Egypt translated the Bible into Greek, the lingua franca of its day. Yet there is but a faint echo of this great victory of faith in Muhammads forgery. But rather than correct Allahs ignorance Ill simply present his version. If you are interested in truth, read Genesis and Exodus. However, as you ponder the Islamic perversion, consider Muhammads motive. He had been spewing his caustic brew of lust and torment for a decade and had nothing to show for it. Lacking credibility, prophecy, miracles, and originality, he stole these things from Mosesa man who had them all.
Every word of what follows parallels Muhammad in Mecca and his war of words with the Quraysh establishment: 040.026 Said Pharaoh: Leave me to kill Moses; and let him cry to his Lord! What I fear is he will change your religion, and cause mischief to appear in the land! Moses said: I have called upon my Lord and your Lord (for protection) from every arrogant one who believes not in the Day of Doom! Pharaohs god was Amun-Re. Mighty temples were erected to him. The moon god of Mecca, he was not. Allahs rock pile and his puny Black Stone werent in Amun-Res league.
This leads to the line that brought us to the 40th surah. 040.028 A believer [thus a Muslim], a man from among Pharaohs family [therefore, not a Muslim], who had concealed his faith [in Islam, a religion that wouldnt be invented for almost 2,000 years], said: Will you slay a man because he says, My Lord is Allah, when he has come to you with Clear (Signs) from your Lord? If he be a liar, on him is his lie: but, if he is telling the truth, then some of that (scourge of Allah, the calamity) which he threatens will befall you. Truly Allah guides not one [who] is extravagant and lies! O my People! Yours is the dominion this day: You have the upper hand, being dominant in the land, but who will save us from Allahs Punishment, should it befall us? Whats with the O my People speech? Moses and his brother Aaron went alone to Pharaoh. Sure there were Jews enslaved in Egypt, but they were miles away making bricks. The only people within earshot of Pharaoh were Egyptians, members of his staff and family.
040.029 Pharaoh said: I point out that which I see; I guide to the Right Path. Then said the man who believed: O my People! Truly I fear for you something like the fate (of disaster) of the Confederates! Something like the fate of the People of Noah, Ad, and Thamud, and those who came after them: but Allah never wishes injustice to slaves. There isnt a trace of the Ad. And even if these imaginary people actually existed, they wouldnt have risen in Arabia until centuries after this conversation occurred. As such, these words could not have been spoken. Therefore, Allah is lying.
This dark spirit lies because its in his nature: 040.032 O my People! I fear a Day when there will be mutual wailing, a Day when you shall turn your backs and flee. No one shall defend you against Allah. Any whom Allah causes to err, there is no guide. That is how Allah leads the skeptic astray. The unnamed Muslim in Pharaohs household sounds an awful lot like Muhammad in Mecca. If they arent the same person, they had the same speechwriter. 040.035 Those who dispute the Signs and Verses of Allah without any authority, grievous and odious, hateful and disgusting, is it in the sight of Allah and the Believers. If my Scriptures were this odious and hateful, Id consider their exposure disgusting too.
040.036 Pharaoh said: O Haman, build me a lofty tower that I may attain a way (to reach) the heavens, that I may mount up and look upon the Ilah (God) of Moses. But as far as I am concerned, I think (Moses) is a liar! Thus was made alluring, in Pharaohs eyes, the evil of his deeds; and the plot of Pharaoh led to nothing but perdition. Allah wants us to believe that the Egyptian king ordered his people to build the Tower of Babel to reach god. Whats more, his Haman is from the book of Esther and also tied to the land of the Babylonians, not the Egyptians. But at least Pharaoh knew that in 1,900 years the Arabic word for God would be Ilah, not Allah.
040.038 The [nameless Muslim] man [masquerading as Muhammad] who believed said: O my People! Follow me: I will lead you to the Right Path (Islam). This life is nothing but enjoyment. It is the Hereafter that is the abode to settle. Whether man or woman, a Believer is such as will enter the Garden of Bliss. Therein will they have abundance. And O my People! How (strange) it is for me to call you to deliverance while you call me to the Hell Fire! Muhammad tipped his hand, again. The Right Path, Garden of Bliss, and Hell Fire were his most notorious themeshis signature.
040.042 You call me to blaspheme against Allah, and to associate partners with Him whom I have no knowledge. This unknown partnership argument is nonsense played in Egypt. Their gods were exceedingly well known, and they were unabashedly numerous. Without doubt you do call me to one who is not fit to be called to. The Transgressors will be inmates of the Hell Fire!
The great unnamed masquerader wasnt finished exposing his real identity or purpose: 040.044 Soon will you remember what I say to you (now), My (own) affair I commit to Allah: for Allah (ever) watches over His Slaves. Then Allah saved him from (every) ill that they plotted (against him), but the brunt of the Penalty, the evil doom encompassed on all sides of Pharaohs folk. During this whole longwinded speech, the unnamed Muslim never uttered the words for which Moses had been sent: Let my people go. And thats because Muhammads recreation of the saga between Moses and Pharaoh was designed to liberate Allahs prophet from criticism, not the Jews from bondage.
With every word sounding like Muhammad in Mecca, the perversion of Moses in Egypt continued, this time with a recap of Allahs favorite subject. 040.046 In front of the Fire will they be brought and exposed morning and evening: And (the sentence will be): Cast the People of Pharaoh into the severest torment, the most awful doom! Behold, they will argue noisily with each other while they wrangle in the Fire! The weak ones (who followed) will say to those who had been arrogant, We but followed you. Can you then take (on yourselves) from us some share of the Fire? The arrogant will say: We are all in this (Fire)! Truly, Allah has judged between slaves! Even with a change of scenery and exposure to the dominant culture of the day, Allah remained mired in the inferno of the Arabian Desert.
This Quranic charade is speaking on behalf of a religion that wouldnt be conceived for nearly twenty centuries. 040.049 Those in the Fire will say to the guards and keepers of Hell: Pray to your Lord to lighten the torment for a day! They will say: Did there not come to you your Messengers with Clear Signs? They will say, Yes. Then pray (as you like)! But the prayer of the disbelievers is futile (and will go unanswered)! They will present their excuses, but they will (only) have the curse and the home of misery. The tirade ends by revealing the source from which the raw material was stolen: 040.053 We showed Moses the guidance, and caused the children of Israel to inherit the Scripture Book (the Torah).
The 40th surah is too long to cover from start to finish. But before we say goodbye to The Forgiver, consider this: 040.070 Those who deny the Book and what We have sent down with Our Apostles will soon come to have iron collars and chains around their necks; they will be dragged through boiling water and then thrust into the Fire to be burnt. While we have changed gods, it wasnt an improvement.

Imagine for a moment that youre Ibn Ishaq. Youre in Baghdad 130 years, or about five generations, after Muhammad brought these disasters upon himself. A Caliph waltzes in and orders you to write the Islamic GospelThe Life of the Prophet Muhammad. But all you have got to work with are oral reports called Hadithhanded down father to son over the vast chasm of time.
You put quill to paper, but your hand shakes. With every word you destroy, demonize actually, the man responsible for the political dogma under which you toil. His scriptures are as twisted and dark as his life. So what do you do?
To his credit, I think Ishaq wrote what he was told. If a Hadith explained an otherwise incomprehensible Quran, if it explained otherwise unjustifiable ritual, if it explained the change in the nature of Arabs that led to their bloody conquests, it made its way into his Sira. So this lone scribe established Islamliterally. Ishaq is responsible for virtually everything Muslims know about Muhammad, his god, his scripture, and his religion. And it isnt good.
Nothing of new substance was presented above. All of his material above was repeated in other articles, it was thoroughly addressed and debunked in the following rebuttals:
Please consult with these articles to find my thorough refutations to his lies above.
I'd like to elaborate on one of his lies that many christians along with him keep brining up, which is the "satanic verses". This lie had been thoroughly debunked in the following article:
The LIE of the "satanic verses" fabricated against the Noble Quran! Also, what about satan's temptations to the Bible's Prophets?
The sections of this article are:
1- The Divine Claims
of the Noble Quran.
2- So what about when JESUS WAS TEMPTED and led and taken by satan for 40 days? Was Jesus a liar too?
- GOD Almighty allowed for satan to tempt Jesus and cause him to suffer.
- The words Jesus spoke during satan's 40-day temptations and control over him, were they GOD's
Inspirations, or satan's garbage?
3- So was Jesus
truly better than Prophet Muhammad? What about Jesus' Murders
when he was a teenager, and the murders he did in the current New Testament?
- Prophet Muhammad's Sins and seeking of Forgiveness from GOD Almighty.
- Jesus killed a boy when he was a teenager, and he was arrogant toward animals.
- So why didn't Allah Almighty punish Prophet Muhammad in the Noble Quran as He punished King David?
4- Also, what about Jesus'
hypocrisy of only bowing to GOD during his desperate times?
1- The Divine Claims of the Noble Quran:
Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran:
"Never did We send an apostle or a prophet before thee, but, when he framed a desire, Satan threw some (vanity) into his desire: but God will CANCEL anything (vain) that Satan throws in, and God will confirm (and establish) His Signs: for God is full of Knowledge and Wisdom: That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan, but a trial for those in whose hearts is a disease and who are hardened of heart: verily the wrong-doers are in a schism far (from the Truth): And that those on whom knowledge has been bestowed may learn that the (Quran) is the Truth from thy Lord, and that they may believe therein, and their hearts may be made humbly (open) to it: for verily God is the Guide of those who believe, to the Straight Way. Those who reject Faith will not cease to be in doubt concerning (Revelation) until the Hour (of Judgment) comes suddenly upon them, or there comes to them the Penalty of a Day of Disaster. (The Noble Quran, 22:52-55)"
There are several points to notice here:
1- Satan did throw deception in the Prophets' desires in the past, which caused them to do and say things that were not inspired by GOD Almighty.
2- GOD Almighty "Cancels anything (vain) that satan throws in." Satan will never prevail, nor will he be able to overpower GOD Almighty's Divine Will.
3- The reason why GOD Almighty allowed satan to temporarily deceive some of the Prophets was to test the believers and to show them how to overcome satan and his evil.
4- Satan's temptations to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him never survived in the Noble Quran. None of the "satanic verses" survived in the Noble Quran.
The so-called "satanic verses" come from the following dubious unauthenticated Islamic sources:
"Have you thought of al-Lat and al-Uzza and Manat, the third ... these are the exalted Gharaniq whose intercession is approved. (Ibn Ishaq, pp. 165-166)"
"Satan ... put upon his (Muhammad's) tongue "these are the exalted Gharaniq whose intercession is approved". (Ibn Ishaq, p. 165-166)"
"When Quraysh heard that, they were delighted and greatly pleased at the way in which he spoke of their gods and they listened to him ... Then the people dispersed and Quraysh went out, delighted at what had been said about their gods, saying, "Muhammad has spoken of our gods in splendid fashion". (Ibn Ishaq, p. 166)"
"Then Gabriel came to the apostle and said , "What have you done, Muhammad? You have read to these people something I did not bring you from God and you have said what He did not say to you." (Ibn Ishaq, p. 166)"
"When the annulment of what Satan had put upon the prophet's tongue came from God, Quraysh said: "Muhammad has repented of what he said about the position of your gods with Allah, altered it and brought something else." (Ibn Ishaq, p. 166-167)"
In my article What parts of the Bible and Hadiths do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth, and Why?, I've proven with ample evidence that most of the hadiths and historic narrations, especially from the unauthenticated sources like "Ibn Ishaq" above, are corrupt and EXTREMELY DOUBTFUL.
2- So what about Jesus when he was tempted and led and taken by satan for 40 days? Was Jesus a liar too?
I've had Christians tell me that if Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was truthful, then GOD Almighty would not have allowed him to get tempted by satan and utter "satanic verses", even if they don't exist today in the Noble Quran. They apparently are not aware of satan's temptations in the Bible:
Important Note: The following Biblical verses will prove my Noble Quranic POINT #3 ABOVE about GOD Almighty allowing satan to tempt His Servants and Prophets to test them.
Jesus Prayed to GOD to not lead him into temptation:
39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
41 He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,
2 He said to them, "When you pray, say: " 'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.
3 Give us each day our daily bread.
4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.' "
5 Then he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
YET, GOD ALMIGHTY DOESN'T TEMPT:
45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.
46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
37 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. "Simon," he said to Peter, "are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?
38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
39 Once more he went away and prayed the same thing.
Yet, the evil spirit tempted Jesus for forty days, despite Jesus' Prayers:
"At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert, and he was in the desert forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him. (From the NIV Bible, Mark 1:12-13)"
Even the Holy Spirit couldn't prevent satan from tempting Jesus:
"Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the desert, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. (From the NIV Bible, Luke 4:1-2)"
Jesus SUFFERED when he was tempted by satan:
17 For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
During those 40 days that Jesus was tempted and controlled by satan in "suffering", did he utter nonsense from his mouth?
In other words, did he speak Revelations, or satan's garbage?
3- So was Jesus truly better than Prophet Muhammad? What about Jesus' Murders when he was a teenager?
Prophet Muhammad's Sins and seeking of Forgiveness from GOD Almighty:
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was a human being. He laughed and cried; he was serious and he joked; he sinned accidentally and intentionally. Let us look at what he said:
"The Prophet used to invoke Allah, saying, "O Allah! Forgive my mistakes and my ignorance and my exceeding the limit (boundaries) of righteousness in my deeds; and forgive whatever You know better than I. O Allah! Forgive the wrong I have done jokingly or seriously, and forgive my accidental and intentional errors, all that is present in me." (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Invocations, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 408)"
The Prophet's Prayer in Arabic goes exactly like this: "Allahumma ighfirli khati'ati wa jahli wa israfi fi amri, wa ma anta a-'lamu bihi minni. Allahumma ighfirli hazali wa jiddi wa khata'i wa amdi, wa kullu dhalika 'indi. (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Invocations, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 408)"
Prophet Muhammad recognizes his sins. Not only this, but Allah Almighty also Commands him and Muslims to seek Forgiveness in the Noble Quran:
"The Apostle believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in God, His angels, His books, and His apostles. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His apostles." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys." (The Noble Quran, 2:285)"
"But seek the forgiveness of God; for God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Noble Quran, 4:106)"
"If any one does evil or wrongs his own soul but afterwards seeks God's forgiveness, he will find God Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Noble Quran, 4:110)"
"Be ye foremost (in seeking) Forgiveness from your Lord, and a Garden (of Bliss), the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth, prepared for those who believe in God and His apostles: that is the Grace of God, which He bestows on whom He pleases: and God is the Lord of Grace abounding. (The Noble Quran, 57:21)"
Jesus killed a boy when he was a teenager, and he was arrogant toward animals:
The Early Christians' Doctrine:
According to the Bible's Historians and Theologians in the documentary film, "Banned from the Bible", which I watched on the History Channel, there are detailed Epistles about Jesus' childhood and his mother Mary. The reason why they were banned from the "Cannon" (New Testament) is because they had so much information about Mary and Jesus, it would take too long to get to Jesus' ministry at the age of 33.
Anyway, in those Epistles, when Jesus was a teenager, he intentionally killed a little boy by throwing him off of the roof, because they had an argument. Christians believe that Jesus is the Creator of the Universe. Therefore, it is fair and right to bring everything about Jesus, even when he was a teenager.
Jesus also in the current New Testament showed a great deal of arrogance and disregard to animals, which resulted in today's Christian societies to be EXTREMELY CRUEL to animals, which explains why they have bull fights, cock fights, dog fights, and chasing small bull-calves and twisting their necks:
"He [Jesus] said to them, 'Go!' so they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 8:32)"
So why didn't Allah Almighty punish Prophet Muhammad in the Noble Quran as He punished King David?
Actually, according to the Noble Quran, Allah Almighty never punished David peace be upon him. Also, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him did not commit any deadly sin that caused any atrocities or murders. His sins were all normal:
"(The Prophet) frowned and turned away, Because there came to him the blind man (interrupting). But what could tell thee but that perchance he might grow (in spiritual understanding)?- Or that he might receive admonition, and the teaching might profit him? As to one who regards Himself as self-sufficient, (The Noble Quran, 80:1-5)"
"O Prophet! Why holdest thou to be forbidden that which God has made lawful to thee? Thou seekest to please thy consorts. But God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Noble Quran, 66:1)"
As to Prophet David peace be upon him, he, like I said, was forgiven by Allah Almighty without punishment:
"Has the Story of the Disputants reached thee? Behold, they climbed over the wall of the private chamber; When they entered the presence of David, and he was terrified of them, they said: "Fear not: we are two disputants, one of whom has wronged the other: Decide now between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, but guide us to the even Path. "This man is my brother: He has nine and ninety ewes, and I have (but) one: Yet he says, 'commit her to my care,' and is (moreover) harsh to me in speech." (David) said: "He has undoubtedly wronged thee in demanding thy (single) ewe to be added to his (flock of) ewes: truly many are the partners (in business) who wrong each other: Not so do those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and how few are they?" And David gathered that We had tried him: he asked forgiveness of his Lord, fell down, bowing (in prostration), and turned (to God in repentance). So We forgave him this (lapse): he enjoyed, indeed, a Near Approach to Us, and a beautiful place of (Final) Return. (The Noble Quran, 38:21-25)"
I've written detailed article about the Noble Quran's differences with the Bible at: Differences between the Noble Quran and Bible only prove Islam's Truthfulness and Divinity.
According to the Bible's own theologians, the original manuscripts of the Bible had been lost:
The original manuscripts had been lost!
"Christians readily admit, however, that there have been 'scribal errors' in the copies of the Old and New Testament. It is beyond the capability of anyone to avoid any and every slip of the pen in copying page after page from any book, sacred or secular. Yet we may be sure that the original manuscript (better known as autograph) of each book of the Bible, being directly inspired by God, was free from all error. Those originals, however, because of the early date of their inception no longer exist."
"Because we are dealing with accounts which were written thousands of years ago, we would not expect to have the originals in our possession today, as they would have disintegrated long ago. We are therefore dependent on the copies taken from copies of those originals, which were in turn continually copied out over a period of centuries. Those who did the copying were prone to making two types of scribal errors. One concerned the spelling of proper names, and the other had to do with numbers."
"Most Christians will affirm that the Bible is our rule of faith and practice. It is a little self contradictory to stand in the pulpit and say the word of God is inspired, when in his heart the pastor knows he is not referring to any book here on this earth that people can hold in their hands and believe. He really should say what he believes - that the word of God WAS inspired at one time but we no longer have it, so the best we can do is hope we have a close approximation of what God probably meant to tell us."
"It also seems a bit inconsistent to say he believes the originals were inspired, when he has never seen them, they never were together in one single book and they no longer exist anyway. How does he know they were inspired? He accepts this by faith. Yet he seems to lack the faith to actually believe that God could do exactly what He said He would do with His words. God said He would preserve them and that heaven and earth would pass away but His words would not pass away."
Irrefutable contradictions, and proofs that the original authors of today's Bible are UNKNOWN!
Muslims and Christians both agree that the Noble Quran does not agree with today's Bible in everything. Just because the Bible might disagree on something in the Noble Quran, it doesn't at all negate the claim of the Noble Quran or make it false. There is a certain flow of logic that the Noble Quran presents which we the Muslims believe that it is the truth.
The Bible's contents today were not written by their original authors. For example, we read from the book of Matthew so many verses such as this one:
"...And as Jesus passed forth thence, HE (Jesus) saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and HE (Jesus) saith unto HIM (Matthew), follow ME (Jesus) and HE (Matthew) arose, and followed HIM (Jesus). (Matthew 9:9)"
Did "Matthew" write this about himself? Why then didn't Matthew write for example: "he (Jesus) saw ME, and my name is Matthew. I was sitting at the receipt of custom " etc.
Similarly, we read in the books of Moses things such as "And the LORD said to Moses...", or "Moses went to that place....", etc... We also read in the Old Testament about Moses' burial. Now if Moses alone supposedly wrote his books, then how is it possible for him to write about his own burial when he is already dead??!!
Such evidence can be found in many places throughout the Old Testament and the New Testament. The so called "Original letters/Gospels" that were written in Greek and Hebrew, were written by third party people!
Consider the following few examples that consist of historical contradictions in the Bible:
II Samuel 10:18 talks about David slew the men of 700
chariots of the Syrians and 40,000 horsemen and Shobach the commander.
I Chronicles 1:18 says that David slew the men of 7000 chariots and 40,000 footmen
I Chronicles 9:25 says that Solomon had 4000 stalls for
horses and chariots.
I Kings 4:26 says that he had 40,000 stalls for horses
Ezra 2:5 talks about an exile Arah having 775 sons.
Nehemiah 7:10 talks about the same exile Arah having 652 sons.
II Samuel 24:13 So God came to David, and told him, and said unto
him, shall SEVEN YEARS OF FAMINE come unto thee in thy land? or will thou flee three
months before thine enemies, while they pursue. thee?
I Chronicles 21:11 SO God came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee. Either THREE YEARS OF FAMINE or three months to be destryed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee;
How did Judas die?
"And he cast down the pieces of silver into the temple and departed, and went out and hanged himself." (Matthew 27:5)
"And falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all of his bowels gushed out." (Acts 1:18)

unto the day of her death.

2 Kings 24:8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to
reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother's name was Nehushta, the
daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.
2 Chronicles 36:9 Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.

Also, your original scriptures are all doubtful according to the Bible's own theologians and historians. It's quite hilarious that even the Bible itself admits that it has been tampered with and corrupted by man's garbage:
"`How can you say, "We [the Jews] are wise, for we have the law of the LORD," when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?' (From the NIV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
The Revised Standard Version makes it even clearer: "How can you say, 'We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us'?
But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie.
(From the RSV Bible, Jeremiah 8:8)"
And regarding who wrote the books and gospels of the Bible, as I quoted above, here is a sample of what the NIV Bible's theologians and historians wrote:
"Serious doubts exists as to whether these verses belong to the Gospel of Mark. They are absent from important early manuscripts and display certain peculiarities of vocabulary, style and theological content that are unlike the rest of Mark. His Gospel probably ended at 16:8, or its original ending has been lost. (From the NIV Bible Foot Notes, page 1528)"
"Although the author does not name himself, evidence outside the Scriptures and inferences from the book itself lead to the conclusion that the author was Luke. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 1643)"
"The writer of this letter does not identify himself, but he was obviously well known to the original recipients. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 1856)"
"The letter is difficult to date with precision....(From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 1905)"
"It seems safe to conclude that the book, at least in its early form, dates from the beginning of the monarchy. Some think that Samuel may have had a hand in shaping or compiling the materials of the book, but in fact we are unsure who the final author or editor was. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 286)"
"Although, according to tradition, Samuel wrote the book, authorship is actually uncertain. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 322)"
"The date of the composition is also unknown, but it was undoubtedly during the monarchy. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 322)"
"The author is unknown. Jewish tradition points to Samuel, but it is unlikely that he is the author because the mention of David (4:17,22) implies a later date. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 360)"
"Who the author was cannot be known with certainty since the book itself gives no indication of his identity. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 368)"
"There is little conclusive evidence as to the identity of the author of 1,2 Kings. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 459)"
"Whoever the author was, it is clear that he was familiar with the book of Deuteronomy. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 459)"
"According to ancient Jewish tradition, Ezra wrote Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah (see Introduction to Ezra: Literary Form and Authorship), but this cannot be established with certainty. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 569)"
"Although we do not know who wrote the book of Esther, from internal evidence it is possible to make some inferences about the author and the date of composition. (From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 707)"
"The unknown author probably had access to oral and/or written sources....(From the NIV Bible commentary, page 722)"
"Regarding authorship, opinions are even more divided....(From the NIV Bible Commentary, page 773)"

It is quite obvious that Christians today believe in third party authors' words as the words of GOD. This is a very serious corruption in the Bible that must be taken into deep consideration by the Bible's followers.

You can not disprove Islam by presenting stories from the Bible that are not narrated the same from the Noble Quran. We Muslims believe that there are many disagreements in today's Bible, and that the Noble Quran should be the Bible that the Jews and the Christians should follow.
Allah Almighty said in the Noble Quran in Noble Verse 11:110 "We (Allah) certainly gave the Book To Moses, but differences Arose therein: had it not been That a Word had gone forth Before from thy Lord, the matter Would have been decided Between them: but they Are in suspicious doubt Concerning it."
"Previous revelations have been corrupted and deprived of their spiritual value by their followers' vain controversies and disputes. It was possible to settle such disputes under the flag, as it were, or the old Revelations, but Allah's Plan was to revive and rejuvenate His Message through Islam, amongst a newer and younger people, unhampered by the burden of age-old prejudices.
There is always in human affairs the conflict between the old and the new, the worn out system of our ancestors, and the fresh living spring of Allah's inspiration fitting in with new times and new surroundings. The advocates of the former look upon this latter not only with intellectual doubt but with moral suspicion, as did the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) upon Islam, with its fresh outlook and vigorous realistic way of looking at things." 
4- Also, what about Jesus' hypocrisy of only bowing to GOD during his desperate times?
The Jesus of the Bible is a hypocrite:
Let us look at the following from the Bible:
"Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed....(From the NIV Bible, Matthew 16:39)"
It is really interesting that Jesus decided to bow down to Allah Almighty. This rare and not so usual practice in Christianity is something we Muslims do 5 times every single day. What Jesus did during his most desperate times in trying to glorify GOD Almighty in the best possible way he can to grab GOD Almighty's attention and to show Him that he (Jesus) is giving Him (GOD) everything he can and is brining himself in the lowest possible humility for Him, we Muslims simply do it 5 times every day without being desperate to glorify GOD Almighty.
Very Important Note: Practicing Muslims do ask GOD Almighty in Prayer when their faces are on the ground during the 5-daily prayers. I was taught that this is the best position to ask Allah Almighty in. My point is that what Jesus did during his most desperate times, we Muslims do it every single day! It seems to me that any practicing Muslim glorifies GOD far more than what Jesus in the Bible did and will ever do.
The incident of Jesus bowing to GOD Almighty in worship is often ignored by Trinitarian Christians. I am surprised that Trinitarian Christians don't even have any problem with the seriousness of this incident. Let us look at few points here:
1- When Jesus bowed down to GOD Almighty only during his desperate times and not in any other time, this tells us that Jesus did not worship GOD Almighty properly during his normal times, because he immediately compromised the normal way that he taught his followers:
"But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. (From the KJV Bible, Matthew 6:5-8)"
2- Jesus did not pray in secret to GOD Almighty. He prayed in a totally different and better way. Jesus contradicted his very own commands.
3- Jesus' incident was simply telling GOD: Listen GOD, I will not sit in my room and pray to you in secret as I commanded my followers. I will do even more to you. I will bow down to you and worship you in the maximum humility, and I pray that you save me from the pain that I am about to go through. This is my extra bonus prayer to you GOD! Save me!!
Another incident that shows Jesus as a hypocrite:
Jesus did not want his followers to repeat their prayers to GOD Almighty in a short time:
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. (From the KJV Bible, Matthew 6:5-8)"
So according to Jesus in Matthew 6:5-8, Christians should not ask GOD Almighty more than once about the same thing, because only the heathens (infidels) do that. Ok, let's look at what Jesus himself did when he started to pray to his GOD Almighty:
36. Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called
Gethsemane, and he said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray."
37. He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled.
38. Then he said to them, "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me."
39. Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will."
40. Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. "Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?" he asked Peter.
41. "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
42. He went away a second time and prayed, "My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done."
43. When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.
44. So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.
45. Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46. Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!"
47. While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people.
48. Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him."
49. Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him.
50. Jesus replied, "Friend, do what you came for."
(From the NIV Bible, Matthew 16:36-50)
"So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 26:44)"
How many times did Jesus pray over the same thing in such a small period of time? 3 times!!! Let us look at the following verse:
"One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God. (From the NIV Bible, Luke 6:12)"
When Jesus prayed all night long in Luke 6:12, did he not repeat his prayers? His main focus was on GOD Almighty saving him from the crucifixion. Jesus' prayers all night long, which obviously were far more than just 3 times, were repetition after repetition after repetition!
Also, since we're speaking of hypocrisy here, isn't Jesus a double-faced hypocrite in Matthew 16:46,50 for calling Judas "his betrayer", and then calling him "friend" after that?
Was Judas really Jesus' "friend"? Isn't Jesus supposed to be the Creator of the Universe as the polytheist trinitarians claim? Then am I wrong for taking Jesus, my supposed perfect GOD, at his own words and exposing his faults?
The lie about the Noble Quran today containing "satanic verses" is the biggest joke and lie ever fabricated about Islam. As we clearly saw above, Allah Almighty allowed for His Prophets and Servants to get tempted to test them. But satan ultimately loses with the real believers. Temptation is not a sin. Only desperate liars claim this in an attempt to discredit Islam, while leaving the great temptation fact and the suffering that Jesus had from satan.
Also, how is Jesus supposed to be the Creator of the Universe when he was tempted and controlled by satan for 40 days, while James 1:13 verse above says clearly that GOD Almighty can not be tempted by satan?
The anti-Islams also ignore the fact that the Jesus of the Bible (not Islam) was technically a hypocrite for bowing ONLY ONCE to GOD Almighty and only through his desperate times, while Muslims today bow down to GOD Almighty 5 times everyday and they are not desperate. Apparently, Jesus knew of the best way to Glorify GOD Almighty, and he only practiced it once during his desperate times. If this doesn't mean anything to you, then what else does?

I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken. My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion. I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
