• Hinduism / Paganism vs. Abrahamism

Islamism, Christianims, Judaism

There are only 4 references to the name Muhammad in Quran and once as Ahmad, while Jesus (Isa) is mentioned over 20 times. Any word written in (brackets) say in English translation is an interpretation and not the actual word in original Arabic version. Muhammad’s father passes away before his birth, leaving him in the care of his paternal grandfather, Abd al-Muttalib. At the age of six Muhammad also loses his mother Aminah and at eight he loses his grandfather. Muhammad's first wife Khadijah is said to have been about 40, but she bears Muhammad at least two sons, who die young and four daughters. Not all lived to adulthood, but one, Fatima, the future wife of Muhammad's cousin Ali.

Qira'at - the readings or methods of recitation: named after the leader of a school of Quran reciters. There are two widely used Qirats - Hafs and Warsh. Takbir = Allahu Akbar

Tafsīr: (Arabic: 'explanation', 'exegesis') - the science of explanation of the Quran, the sacred scripture of Islam or of Quranic commentary.

Reference: Kitab al-Kafi - In the Islamic literature Hadith sometimes is used to replace the word 'Sunnah'. The Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad and the other infallible personalities consists of three issues: a)Their statements, b)Their deeds and c)Their approval or disapproval of a certain act, practice or statements. The first collection of hadith (texts of guidance from the Holy Prophet and the Imams) ever recorded in a book form was the book of Ali ibn abu Talib.

  • Hadith: Prophetic tradition, plural Ahadith. Most of the biographical information that the Islamic tradition preserves about Muhammad occurs outside the Quran, in the so-called sirah (Arabic: 'biography') literature. Most important work in the genre is Muhammad ibn Ishaq’s (died 767–768) Kitaab al-maghazi ("Book of [the Prophet’s] Military Expeditions").
  • Hadith Hasan: It is a hadith reported by a reliable chain of narrators but does not reach the grade of the Hadith Sahih, which is rendered thus due to the strong memory of its narrators
  • Hadith Mawquf: is that in which the narration of the companion does not connect to the Prophet so it is restricted to the companion alone
  • Hadith Marfu: is that which is reported with a full chain of narrators and is connected to the Prophet
  • Hadith Mu'allaq: is that in which the reporter omits the whole Isnad and quotes the Prophet directly
  • Hadith Mursal: is that in which the link between the Successor (Tabi'i) and the Prophet is missing
  • Hadith Sahih: is an authentic Hadith, which is related by an unbroken chain of narrators, and its reporters are all trustworthy, having good and strong memories.

Musnad is an Arabic word that means 'dependable' or 'reliable'. It is also a technical term in the science of hadith which means "a saying of the Prophet Muhammad that can be traced back to the Prophet himself through a reliable chain of narrators". Six most authentic collections of the Hadiths - Sahih Al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sahih Al-Tirmidhi, Sunan Ibn Majah, Sunan Abu Dawud and Sahih Al-Nisa’i. Abu Dawood, Sulaiman bin Al-Ash'ath bin Ishaq Al-Azdi As-Sijistani, who was one of the eminent Imams of Hadith, was born in 202H. He studied Hadith under Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal along with Al-Bukhari and taught many of the later scholars of Hadiths, like At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa'i.

Ahl al-Bayt, (Arabic: "People of the House") designation in Islam for the fourteen infallible holy family members of the Prophet Muhammad, particularly his daughter Fāṭimah, her husband Ali (who was also Muhammad's cousin), their sons al-Husayn and Hasan, and their descendants.

Shirk: worship of anything other than God

Ghilman is the Arabic plural of Ghulam. مال غنیمت : Maal-e-Ghanimat : माल-ए-ग़नीमत: War Booty, Spoil / despicable parochially divisive - पारलौकिक कुत्सित रूप से विभाजनकारी

Black Stone in Islam

During the first century [Umayyad Caliphate] of Muslim rule, Arab Muslims were favored over non-Arab Muslims, who were called mawali - Arabic for client. Non-Muslim groups comprised a protected class called dhimmis who had to pay a special tax for protection called the jizya. During the late Abbasid and post-Abbasid period, there were ethnic divisions within the military. Enslaved Turkic soldiers, called ghilman (Arabic plural of Ghulam) or mamluks.

Shia Sect

The line of succession therefore was to be in an unbroken line of succession leading back to the Prophet. The institution of leadership that eventually evolved from this view was called the “imamate” and those who opposed that narrative following the death of Prophet Muhammed decided to elect a representative for the Muslim community known as a Caliph who held both religious and leading authority. This second ruling institution that evolved out of this crisis after the death of Muhamad was called the caliphate.
  1. Ahl al-Bayt: The infallible Ahlul-Bayt (people of the house) as referred to them by the Shi’i Muslims, are the family of the Prophet Muhammed and descendants of his daughter Fatimah and her husband Ali.
  2. Muharam: The first month of the Islamic (lunar) calendar
  3. Ashura: The Tenth day of month of Muharram (the first month of Islamic Calendar) and means tenth in Arabic.
  4. Battle of Karbala: [10th of Muharram, AH 61], a historical battle in which a small party led by Hussein and 72 of companions was massacred by an army sent by the Umayyad caliph Yazid. Among the Shiʿi Muslims the 10th of Muharram (Ashura) became an annual holy day of public mourning.
  5. Hussein: the grandson of Prophet Muhammed and the third Imam for Shi’i Twelvers.
  6. Karbala: a city in central Iraq
  7. Madhlumiya: The condition of having been wronged or being subjected to injustice and oppression. Madhlumiya is the Arabic word and Mazlumiyat is a Persian version of the same concept and both are used interchangeably.
  8. Shi'i Twelvers: Largest branch of Shi'i Islam (approximately 85% of all Shi’i with an estimate of 200-220 million Twelvers) making them the second largest Muslim community after Sunni Muslims. Shi'i Muslims hold the belief that the twelve imams (Ahlul-Bayt) beginning with Ali, are the divinely ordained leaders who are the rightful spiritual and political successor of Muhammed.
  9. al-Jafr: "It is a container made of skin that contains the knowledge of the prophets and the executors of their wills. It is the knowledge of the scholars in the past from the Israelites." Reference: Kitab al-Kafi
  10. al-Jami'a: "It is a parchment seventy yards long by the yards of the Messenger of Allah. It contains his dictations from his very own mouth that are recorded onto it in the handwriting of Ali. It contains all the lawful and unlawful, and all matters that people need. Even the law of compensation for a scratch caused to a person." Reference: Kitab al-Kafi
  11. Mushaf of Fatima: "Mushaf of Fatima is three times bigger than your Quran. There is not even a single letter therein from your Quran." Reference: Kitab al-Kafi

Eschatology: the doctrine of the last things. It was originally referring to Jewish, Christian and Muslim beliefs about the end of history, the resurrection of the dead, the Last Judgment. In the history of religion, the term eschatology refers to conceptions of the last things: immortality of the soul, rebirth, resurrection, migration of the soul and the end of time.

Mahdī, (Arabic: "guided one") in Islamic eschatology, a messianic deliverer who will fill earth with justice and equity, restore true religion and usher in a short golden age lasting seven, eight or nine years before the end of the world. The Quran does not mention him.

Books specific to Shia sects: "Madinah to Karbala: sacrifice of the Ahl-ul-Bait and Sahabah of Rasoolullah" is a translation of 'Khutbaat-e-Muharram' a famous work of the noted Aalim of the Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal-Jama'ah, Hadhrat Fageeh-e-Millat Mufti Jalaluddeca Ahmad Al-Amjadi. This book is full of stories of divine interventions such as graves of Prophet's companion asking for relocation due to humidity!

"The Oblitertion of Falsehood" is translation of "Jaa al Haqq wa Zahaqal Batil" (written by Mufti Ahmed Yaar Khan Na'cemi and translated by a Mufti Omar Dawood Qadri Moceni). Mufti Jalaluddeen Ahmad Al-Amjadi - Al-Amjadi's Fataawa were published in the monthly magazine 'Faiz-ur-Rasool' - later his verdicts were eventually gathered and published in two volumes entitled "Fataawa Faiz-ur-Rasool". Jalaluddeen Ahmad Al-Amjadi wrote every Fatwa after thoroughly researching through the many famous texts of the Hanafi Madh'hab such as "Al-Fataawa Ar-Ridhwiyyab", 'Bahaar-e-Shariat' and 'Radd-ul-Muhtaar'.

bibleodyssey.org/en/people/related-articles/abraham-and-islam: Muslims understand Islam to be the religion of Abraham. The biblical figure of Abraham is mentioned by name in the Qur’an 69 times—more than any other person except for Moses (137 times).

Preservation of Quran: You’ve got freeze dried. You’ve got pickled. You’ve got canned. You’ve got dried. You’ve got salted. You’ve got vacuum packed. Take your pick! Nope, they can always claim the copy in heaven is the one preserved. Muslims: The Quran is preserved even to the letter, Also Muslims: adding dots to the Quran since the arabic language is evolving.

  1. Why Islam didn't abolish the tradition of Slavery?
  2. When a slave girl is taken as maal-e-ghanimat, how can a man be allowed to have intercourse with her without her permission? Is Islam so biased towards females?
  3. Why can a man beat his wife if she is ignorant but a wife can't if her husband is ignorant?
  4. Why is Islam against family planning?

Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan: A person shall not be qualified for election as President unless he is a Muslim of not less than forty-five years of age and is qualified to be elected as member of the national assembly. इस्लामिक रिपब्लिक ऑफ पाकिस्तान का संविधान: एक व्यक्ति को राष्ट्रपति पद का चुनाव योग्य नहीं माना जाएगा, जब तक कि वह पैंतालीस साल से कम उम्र का मुसलमान न हो और उसे नेशनल असेंबली का सदस्य चुने जाने की योग्यता हो।

Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan: "non-Muslim" means a person who is not a Muslim and includes a person belonging to the Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist or Parsi community, a person of the Quadiani group or the Lahori group (who call themselves Ahmadis or by any other name) or a Bahai and person belonging to any of the scheduled castes. इस्लामिक रिपब्लिक ऑफ पाकिस्तान का संविधान: "नॉन-मुसलिम" का अर्थ है एक व्यक्ति जो मुस्लिम नहीं है और इसमें ईसाई, हिंदू, सिख, बौद्ध या पारसी समुदाय से संबंधित व्यक्ति, क़दियन समूह या लाहौरी समूह का व्यक्ति शामिल है (जो खुद को अहमदी कहते हैं या किसी अन्य द्वारा) नाम), या बहाई, और अनुसूचित जातियों में से किसी से संबंधित व्यक्ति।

In Afghanistan Islam is the official state religion, stated explicitly in the constitution: "The sacred religion of Islam is the religion of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan." The constitution also requires the president and vice president to belong to the state religion – as do some other countries – and other senior officials must swear allegiance to the principles of Islam in their oaths of office. Political parties’ charters must not run contrary to the principles of Islam, and the Ulema Council, a group of influential Islamic scholars, imams and jurists, meets regularly with government officials to advise on legislation. The constitution mandates that "No law shall contravene the tenets and provisions of the holy religion of Islam in Afghanistan".

"But between belief and actual character there is a wide difference. As a follower of Islam I am bound to regard the creed of Islam as superior to that professed by the followers of any non-Islamic religion. And in this sense the creed of even a fallen and degraded Mussalman is entitled to a higher place than that of any other non-Muslim irrespective of his high character even though the person in question be Mahatma Gandhi himself." — Mohammad Ali Jauhar Letter to Swami Shraddhananda, quoted in Arun Shourie - The World of Fatwas Or The Sharia in Action.

The Battle of Badr took place on 16 March 624 (17 Ramadan 2 AH) in a small town off the coast of present-day Saudi Arabia. The city of Badr lies between Mecca and Medina, two of the three most holy cities in Islam. The vast majority of Islamic warfare in history has been offensive in nature. Muhammad's ability to bring together dissimilar tribes within a greater tribal construct towards political and religious objectives is one of Badr's greatest results. The religious rhetoric of the battle still resonates today in mosque teachings and children's schooling and the religious significance of the battle cannot be understated.

"To consider one’s creed as superior to that of every non-Muslim is the duty of a Mussalman." — Mohammad Ali Jauhar In a letter to the Tej, quoted in Arun Shourie - The World of Fatwas Or The Sharia in Action

Writing in 1921 in Comrade - Maulana Mohammad Ali Jauhar: "I am a Muslim first and every thing else afterwards; just as I believe that Mahatma Gandhi is Hindu first and everything else afterwards. All that Islam demands from me is that I should not live in a land where I could not follow the dictates of my religion with impunity and it is just because Swaraj (self-rule) will give me that and the present British autocracy does not that I yearn for Swaraj and regards its attainment as a religious duty."

Mohammed Ali pleaded Muslims to send a separate delegation in 1930s London Round Table Conference to represent Muslims. His appeal symbolized the collapse of the old alliance on which Gandhi had built the non-cooperation movement and clearly showed that only Muslim League spoke for the Indian Muslims. Maulana Mohammad Ali Jauhar in 1930 during speech at the Round Table Conference: "Religion to my mind, means the interpretation of life. I have a culture, a polity, an outlook on life, a complete synthesis which is Islam. Where God commands, I am a Muslim first, a Muslim second, and a Muslim last, and nothing but a Muslim.... My first duty is to my Maker, not to His Majesty the King, nor to my companion Dr. Moonje."

'Monotheism' does not mean "God is one". It means "there is one God, that god is MY god, all others are FALSE gods". There is no concept of "false gods" in Advaita or Sanatan or Hindu philosophy, no concept of 'shirk'. Monotheism is an imperialist ideology of intolerance and erasure.

The sole intent of shutting down a legitimate discussion about Islam - intentionally blurs the legal distinction between people and ideas. The distinction between legitimate criticism of ideas and illegitimate dissemination of hatred against groups of people is vitally important – not only morally, but also legally. The mulsim apologists love the word Islamophobic! It is not a real word by the way yet they use it as its creator intended, to keep anyone disagreeing with Islam from speaking out.
  1. Of course, there are those who benefit from proscribing any criticism of Islam to silence opposition voices. The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation tried for years to restrict "defamation of Islam" through the UN (thus twisting the meaning of defamation, which is applicable against people, not entire religions). Just last month, the Turkish Foreign Minister called for ‘Islamophobia’ to be proscribed in the EU.
  2. It is powerful communist tool to avoid ligitimate questions and debates! Fact that any other religions exist is Izlamophobia!
  3. It is a victim card to protect the Book who calls other Kafir, Najis, worst of creatures and many more derogatory words.
Islamophobia was first used by the Iranian Mullah regime in 1979 against secular Iranians who didn't want to live according to Islamic codex. It was a term used by Muslims against Muslims who didn't want to adopt to the new Islamic rules like the compulsory wearing of the hijab.Google it. Most sheeple don't know the words they use so often against other people.
Criteria put forward by muslim scholars to interpret Quran:
  • The need for objectivity and honesty when dealing with a topic of the Quran.
  • The need for adhering to the two primary sources of Islam, that being the Quran and the Sunna/Ahadith. The opinions of scholars must be tested in light of the Quran and Sunna, to see whether such views comport (agree with) with an accurate interpretation of said sources.
  • Avoid the following errors: Errors of translations - using faulty or being dependent on translations of the Quran. The cut and paste approach – taking verses out of context. There are four categories of out of context quotations:
    1. Out of the context of the verse - failing to quote all of the verse.
    2. Ignoring to read the verse in its immediate and following contexts i.e. within the entire section of the chapter in which it is found.
    3. Failing to interpret the verse in light of the overall teaching of the Quran on a specific issue. There is also a failure to understand what the Sunna or the hadiths of Muhammad have to say about the topic in question.
    4. Out of context historically – ignoring the historical situation which called for the implementation of said injunction.

The prophets of Islam include: Adam, Idris (Enoch), Nuh (Noah), Hud (Heber), Saleh (Methusaleh), Lut (Lot), Ibrahim (Abraham), Ismail (Ishmael), Ishaq (Isaac), Yaqub (Jacob), Yusuf (Joseph), Shu'aib (Jethro), Ayyub (Job), Dhulkifl (Ezekiel), Musa (Moses), Harun (Aaron), Dawud (David), Sulayman (Solomon), Ilyas (Elias), Alyasa (Elisha), Yunus (Jonah), Zakariya (Zachariah), Yahya (John the Baptist), Isa (Jesus) and Muhammad.

Shirk or associating others with Allah would naturally include Christians as being among those who associate others with God, that they are to be viewed as mushrikeen due to their belief in the Holy Trinity and in Jesus as the Divine Son of God.

Idolatry in Islam

Islam is cult of stone which:
  • Kiss and touch black stone
  • Circumambulate stone-house
  • Throw stone
  • Stone to death

    and finally ...

  • Pelt stone

18. Do you not realize that to Allah prostrates everyone in the heavens and everyone on earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the animals and many of the people?

C-002-V034. And We said to the angels, "Bow down to Adam." They bowed down, except for Satan. He refused, was arrogant, and was one of the disbelievers.

Reference: Sunan an-Nasa'i 2935, English translation: Vol. 3, Book 24, Hadith 2938: It was narrated from Ibn Abbas that the Prophet said: "The Black Stone is from Paradise."

Burāq: reference - britannica.com/topic/Buraq

In Islāmic traditions, a creature said to have transported the Prophet Muḥammad to heaven. Described as "a white animal, half-mule, half-donkey, with wings on its sides . . . " Burāq was originally introduced into the story of Muḥammad’s night journey (isrāʾ) from Mecca to Jerusalem and back, thus explaining how the journey between the cities could have been completed in a single night. In some traditions he became a steed with the head of a woman and the tail of a peacock. As the tale of the night journey (isrāʾ) became connected with that of Muḥammad’s ascension to heaven (miʿrāj), Burāq replaced the ladder as Muḥammad’s means of access into heaven.

Namaz in Quran

Righteousness does not consist of turning your faces towards the East and the West. But righteous is he who believes in Allah, and the Last Day, and the angels, and the Scripture, and the prophets. Who gives money, though dear, to near relatives, and orphans, and the needy, and the homeless, and the beggars, and for the freeing of slaves; those who perform the prayers, and pay the obligatory charity, and fulfill their promise when theypromise, and patiently persevere in the face of persecution, hardship, and in the time of conflict. These are the sincere; these are the pious.

C-002-V-102: Harut and Marut - etymologically related to those of Haruvatāt and Ameretāt, Zoroastrian archangels.

Excerpts from Sahih Al-Bukhari

Sahih Al-Bukhari: 2478. Narrated 'Abdullãh bin Mas'ud: The Prophet entered Makkah and (at that time) there were three hundred and sixty idols around the Ka'bah. He started stabbing the idols with a stick he had in his hand and reciting: "And say Truth (i.e. Islamic Monotheism or this Qur'an or Jihad against polytheists) has come and Batil (falsehood i.e. Satan or polytheism) has vanished." (V.17:81)

साहिह अल-बुखारी: 2478 - अब्दुल्लाह बिन मसूद ने वर्णन किया: पैगंबर ने मक्का में प्रवेश किया और (उस समय) काबा के चारों ओर तीन सौ और साठ मूर्तियाँ थीं। उसने मूर्तियों को अपने हाथ में रखी एक छड़ी से मारना शुरू कर दिया और पढ़ते हुए कहा: "और सच कहो (यानी इस्लामिक एकेश्वरवाद या यह कुरान या जिहाद बहुदेववादियों के खिलाफ) आया है और बातिल (झूठ, यानी शैतान या बहुदेववाद) गायब हो गया है।"

Note: why Dajjal is not explicitly mentioned in the Quran?

Quran on Wine

Early Islam: Umar (r.a) had special characteristics that were known to the Prophet before his conversion to Islam. Because of these, the Prophet used to supplicate to Allah "Oh Allah, strengthen Islam with the more beloved of these two men to you: Abu Jahil Ibn Hisam or 'Umar Ibn Khatab" (Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith 3683). When the prayer was accepted it was confirmed by the Angel Jubril saying to the Prophet: "O Muhammad (s.a.w) the residents of the heavens are rejoicing in Umar's embracing Islam". (Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith 103).

Quran about Divorce
C-002-V-0230: And if he has divorced her (the third time), then she is not lawful unto him thereafter until she has married another husband. Then, if the other husband divorces her, it is no sin on both of them that they reunite, provided they feel that they can keep the limits ordained by Allah. These are the limits of Allah, which He makes plain for the people who have knowledge. 232. And when you have divorced women and they have fulfilled the term of their prescribed period, do not prevent them from marrying their (former) husbands, if they mutually agree on reasonable basis. This (instruction) is an admonition for him among you who believes in Allah and the Last Day. That is more virtuous and purer for you. Allah knows and you know not.
Quran on Apostasy
C-002-V-218:They will not stop fighting you until they turn you back from your faith, if they can. The works of those from among you who turn back from their faith and die in a state of disbelief shall be vain in this world and the next. These are the inmates of the fire, therin shall they abide.

C-047-V-026: Surely, those who have turned away after guidance has been made manifest to them have been deceived by Satan who has beguiled them with false hopes.

Quran on Muslim Dominance
C-009-V-033: "He (Allah) has sent his prophet, And has guided him (by giving him 'din' religion Islam), which is true, so that it shall dominate all other religions, and 'mushrikeen'/idolshipers, don’t like it." (Usmani, Volume 1:863-864)

C-061-V009: It is He Who has sent His Apostle with Guidance And the Religion of Truth, That he may proclaim it Over all religion, Even though the Pagans May detest (it).

Reference : Sunan Ibn Majah 3927, English translation : Vol. 5, Book 36, Hadith 3927 - It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said: "I have been commanded to fight the people until they say: La ilaha illallah. If they say it, then their blood and wealth are protected from me, except for a right that is due from it, and their reckoning will be with Allah."

Quran about Dowry
C-002-C-229. The divorce is twice, after that, either you retain her on reasonable terms or release her with kindness. And it is not lawful for you (men) to take back (from your wives) any of your Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) which you have given them, except when both parties fear that they would be unable to keep the limits ordained by Allah (e.g. to deal with each other on a fair basis). Then if you fear that they would not be able to keep the limits ordained by Allah, then there is no sin on either of them if she gives back (the Mahr or a part of it) for her Al-Khul' (divorce). These are the limits ordained by Allah, so do not transgress them. And whoever transgresses the limits ordained by Allah, then such are the Zalimun (wrong-doers).


Occurrences of 'We' in Quran

C002-V-087: We gave Moses the Scripture, and sent a succession of messengers after him. And We gave Jesus son of Mary the clear proofs, and We supported him with the Holy Spirit. Is it that whenever a messenger comes to you with anything your souls do not desire, you grew arrogant, calling some impostors, and killing others?

C-004-V-062. How about when a disaster strikes them because what their hands have put forward, and then they come to you swearing by Allah: "We only intended goodwill and reconciliation"?

C-014-V004: We never sent any messenger except in the language of his people, to make things clear for them. Allah leads astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. He is the Mighty, the Wise.

C-033-V-050: O Prophet! We have permitted to you your wives to whom you have given their dowries, and those you already have, as granted to you by Allah, and the daughters of your paternal uncle, and the daughters of your paternal aunts, and the daughters of your maternal uncle, and the daughters of your maternal aunts who emigrated with you, and a believing woman who has offered herself to the Prophet, if the Prophet desires to marry her, exclusively for you, and not for the believers . We know what We have ordained for them regarding their wives and those their righthands possess. This is to spare you any difficulty. Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Who are the people refered by 'We'?

C-004-V064. We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by Allah’s leave. Had they, when they wronged themselves, come to you, and prayed for Allah's forgiveness, and the Messenger had prayed for their forgiveness, they would have found Allah Relenting and Merciful.

C-039-V-002: We sent down to you the Book with the truth, so serve Allah, devoting your religion to Him.

Women in Quran

C-004-V-034: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, as Allah has given some of them an advantage over others, and because they spend out of their wealth. The good women are obedient, guarding what Allah would have them guard. As for those from whom you fear disloyalty, admonish them, and abandon them in their beds, then strike them. But if they obey you, seek no way against them. Allah is Sublime, Great.

C-037-V-048. And with them will be women limiting [their] glances, with large, [beautiful] eyes, V-049. As if they were [delicate] eggs, well protected. C-052-V-020. They will be reclining on thrones lined up, and We will marry them to fair women with large, [beautiful] eyes. C-038-V-052: And beside them will be chaste females (virgins) restraining their glances only for their husbands, (and) of equal ages. C-078-V-033. And full-breasted [companions] of equal age.

Slaves in Quran

C-002-V-0178: O you who believe! Retaliation for the murdered is ordained upon you: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, the female for the female. But if he is forgiven by his kin, then grant any reasonable demand, and pay with good will. This is a concession from your Lord, and a mercy. But whoever commits aggression after that, a painful torment awaits him.

C-004-V-003. And if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphan-girls then marry (other) women of your choice, two or three, or four; but if you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one or (the slaves) that your right hands possess. That is nearer to prevent you from doing injustice.

C-004-V-092: Never should a believer kill another believer, unless by error. Anyone who kills a believer by error must set free a believing slave, and pay compensation to the victim’s family, unless they remit it as charity. If the victim belonged to a people who are hostile to you, but is a believer, then the compensation is to free a believing slave. If he belonged to a people with whom you have a treaty, then compensation should be handed over to his family, and a believing slave set free. Anyone who lacks the means must fast for two consecutive months, by way of repentance to Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, Most Wise.

C-033-V-050. O Prophet (Muhammad)! Verily, We have made lawful to you your wives, to whom you have paid their Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), and those (slaves) whom your right hand possesses - whom Allah has given to you, and the daughters of your ‘Amm (paternal uncles) and the daughters of your Ammdt (paternal aunts) and the daughters of your Khal (maternal uncles) and the daughters of your Khalat (maternal aunts) who migrated (from Makkah) with you and a believing woman if she offers herself to the Prophet and the Prophet wishes to marry her - a privilege for you only, not for the (rest of) the believers. Indeed We know what We have enjoined upon them about their wives and those (slaves) whom their right hands possess, inorder that there should be no difficulty on you. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

C-033-V-052. It is not lawful for you (to marry other) women after this, nor to change them for other wives even though their beauty attracts you, except those (slaves) whom your right hand possesses.

Quran on Pagans and Non-Believers

KAFIR and MUNAFIQ are used indifferently for anyone who rejects the prophecy of Mohammed or thinks he is a false prophet. When you look at all the slurs and slanderous names used in the Koran, we find they are thrown around liberally and without much precision and often, they refer to the same people. Non‐​Muslims are non‐​Muslim for the very same reason that most Muslims are Muslim: they are following the tradition of the families and communities into which they were born. To say that God has cursed them for this is to postulate an unjust God. This really would not be the compassionate God of humanity that the Quran introduces.

Reference: Madina-to-Karbala - sacrifice of the Ahl-ul-Bait and Sahabah of Rasoolullah" a translation of 'Khutbaat-e-Muharram'

Muslims and Kaphirs

Terms kufr and shirk are used interchangeably in the Quran. Jews and Christians are disbelievers since they are guilty of ascribing partners to Allah for believing that Ezra or Jesus.

C-009-V-023: O you who believe! Do not ally yourselves with your parents and your siblings if they prefer disbelief to belief. Whoever of you allies himself with them — these are the wrongdoers.

C-009-V-028: O you who believe! The polytheists are polluted (Najis, unclean), so let them not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year of theirs. And if you fear poverty, Allah will enrich you from His grace, if He wills. Allah is Aware and Wise.

C-009-V-029 - Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, nor abide by the religion of truth - from among those who received the Scripture - until they pay the due tax, willingly or unwillingly. The word "FIGHT" is in the Arabic quran "QATILOO" and this means "FIGHT TO KILL".

C-098-V-006: Those who disbelieve among the People of the Scripture, and the Polytheists, will be in the Fire of Hell, where they will abide forever. These are the worst of creatures.

A country which hangs apostates, hangs converts and homosexuals. A country which stones adulterers. Amputates hands for petty thefts. Flogs alcoholics. A country which has eliminated its entire native Zoroastrian population is talking about minority rights!

Language of Islam is dualistic. There is never any reference to humanity as a unified whole. There is a division into believer and kafir. Humanity is not seen as one body, but is divided into whether the person believes Mohammed is prophet of Allah or not.

3:28 Believers should not take kafirs as friends in preference to other believers. Those who do this will have none of Allah’s protection and will only have themselves as guards. Allah warns you to fear Him for all will return to Him.

#Quran: 3-85 Whoever seeks other than #Islam as a religion, it will not be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers. जो कोई भी इस्लाम के अलावा एक अन्य धर्म को पसंद करता है, उसे उससे स्वीकार नहीं किया जाएगा, और इसके बाद वह हारे हुए लोगों में से एक होगा।

9:29 Make war on those who have received the Scriptures [Jews and Christians] but do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day. They do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden. The Christians and Jews do not follow the religion of truth until they submit and pay the poll tax [jizya], and they are humiliated.

33:60 They [kafirs] will be cursed, and wherever they are found, they will be seized and murdered. It was Allah’s same practice with those who came before them, and you will find no change in Allah’s ways.

C-005-V-051. O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, God guides not the wrongdoing people.

V-069-V-030. "Take him and shackle him. 31. Then scorch him in the Blaze. 32. Then in a chain which length is seventy cubits tie him up. 33. For he would not believe in God the Great. 34. Nor would he advocate the feeding of the destitute. 35. So he has no friend here today. 36. And no food except scum. 37. Which only the sinners eat."38. Indeed, I swear by what you see.

--Here we get a description of how to punish non-Muslims. This is in practice even today in Islamic countries. In fact, the Sikh Gurus and their families were tortured by muslims as prescribed in the Quran. For example, Sikh guru Tegh Bahadur on refusing to accept Islam, was brought to the prison in a cage like he was a wild animal. Three of his disciples were murdered in front of him. One of them was Bhai Mati Das. He was sawed alive. The other was wrapped up in cotton and burnt alive. Bhai Dyala, the third one, was boiled alive. Guru Tegh Bahadur himself was brutally tortured and killed in a similar fashion.

"No baby is born but upon Fitra (as a Muslim). It is his parents who make him a Jew or a Christian or a Polytheist." (Sahih Muslim, Book 033, Number 6426). Note: If insecured Muslims with very low self esteem insist all are born Muslims, then Jews can also claims all humans are born Jewish if they want to. The other believers do not make such a claim [all are born into their respective religions] because it is silly and religiously immatured and offensive to others.

Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari 3882, In-book reference: Book 63, Hadith 107 -- Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger, while going out for the battle of Hunain, said, "Tomorrow Allah willing, we will encamp at Khaif Bani Kinana where the pagans(of Quraish) took the oath of Kufr (against the Prophet i.e. to be loyal to heathenism, by boycotting Banu Hashim, the Prophet's folk.

Animal Sacrifices

Grade: Hasan (Al-Albani), Reference: Sunan Abi Dawud 2792, English translation: Book 15, Hadith 2786 - "Narrated 'Aishah: The Prophet (Saws) ordered a horned ram with black legs, black belly and black round the eyes and it was brought from him to sacrifice. He said: 'Aishah, get the knife then he said: Sharpen it with a stone. So I did. He took it, then take the ram he placed it on the ground and slaughtered it. He then said: In the name of Allah. O Allah, accept it for Muhammad, Muhammad's family and Muhammad's people. Then he sacrificed it."

C-071-V-013: What is the matter with you, that you are not conscious of Allah's majesty, seeing that it is He Who has created you in diverse stages? See you not how Allah has created the seven heavens one above another, and made the moon a light in their midst, and made the sun as a (glorious) lamp? And Allah has produced you from the earth, growing (gradually). V-018: 18. Then He will return you into it, and will bring you out again. 19. And Allah made the earth a spread for you.

C-088-V-017. Do they not look at the camels - how they are created? 18. And at the sky - how it is raised? 19. And at the mountains - how they are installed? 20. And at the earth - how it is spread out?

Paranormal Activities in Quran and Muslim Practices

Reference: Madina-to-Karbala - sacrifice of the Ahl-ul-Bait and Sahabah of Rasoolullah" a translation of 'Khutbaat-e-Muharram' - "It is a well-known occurrence of the 1930s (1933 to be precise) during the era of King Faisal 1 in Iraq. The great companion of the Holy Prophet, Sayyiduna Hudhaifah was sighted by the king in a dream. Sayyiduna Hudhaifah informed King Faisal that he and Sayyiduna Abdullah bia Jabir were both suffering extreme affliction in their present graves and therefore they should be relocated to a grave situated at a distance from the river Tigris. The grave of Sayyiduna Hudhaifah was flooded whilst the grave of Sayyiduna Abdulla bin Jabir was filled with humidity and dampness.

To the astonishment of the people, when the blessed bodies were extracted, they fresh and fragrant in spite of 1300 years passing since these two Companions had been laid to rest in these graves. It seemed as though only a few hours must have passed since these Companions passed away as there was no decay of their bodies, rigor mortis and bad odour that is normally associated with dead bodies. The blessed faces of these two Companions were radiant, their clothes were unstained whilst the hair of their beards were intact, Another astonishing factor was witnessed when the stretchers were lowered in order to lift the bodies. There was no need for the use of hands or any equipment to place the bodies on the stretchers as both bodies miraculously mounted the stretchers without any assistance. Both bodies were then placed in a glass coffin and both bodies were buried in an appropriate shrine with due care and attention.

C-001-V-259. Or like the one who passed by a town and it had tumbled over its roofs. He said: "Oh! How will Allah ever bring it to life after its death?" So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years, then raised him up (again).

C-053-V-007: While he was in the higher [part of the] horizon. 8. Then he approached and descended 9. And was at a distance of two bow lengths or nearer. 10. And he revealed to His Servant what he revealed [i.e. coveyed].

C-001-V-010. So watch out for the Day when the sky produces a visible smoke. V-011. Enveloping mankind; this is a painful punishment.

C-024-V-035. Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The allegory of His light is that of a pillar on which is a lamp. The lamp is within a glass. The glass is like a brilliant planet, fueled by a blessed tree, an olive tree, neither eastern nor western. Its oil would almost illuminate, even if no fire has touched it.

C-034-V-012. And for Solomon the wind - its outward journey was one month, and its return journey was one month. And We made a spring of tar flow for him.

C-034-V-014. Then, when We decreed death for him, nothing indicated his death to them except an earthworm eating at his staff. Then, when he fell down, it became clear to the sprites that, had they known the unseen, they would not have remained in the demeaning torment.

C-069-V-040. [That] indeed, it [i.e. the Qur’an] is the word of a noble Messenger. 41. And it is not the word of a poet, little do you believe. 42. Nor the word of a soothsayer; little do you remember. 43. [It is] a revelation from the Lord of the worlds. 44. And if he [i.e. Muhammad] had made up about Us some [false] sayings, 45. We would have seized him by the right hand; 46. Then We would have cut from him the aorta. 47. And there is no one of you who could prevent [Us] from him. 48.

Muhammad, Angel and Dog

Book 24, Number 5246: A'isha reported that Gabriel (peace be upon him) made a promise with Allah's Messenger to come at a definite hour; that hour came but he did not visit him. And there was in his hand (in the hand of Allah's Apostle) a staff. He threw it from his hand and said: Never has Allah or His messengers (angels) ever broken their promise. Then he cast a glance (and by chance) found a puppy under his cot and said: 'A'isha, when did this dog enter here? She said: BY Allah, I don't know He then commanded and it was turned out. Then Gabriel came and Allah's Messenger said to him: You promised me and I waited for you. but you did not come, whereupon he said: It was the dog in your house which prevented me (to come), for we (angels) do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.

Reference: britannica.com/biography/Muhammad-al-Mahdi-al-Hujjah -- Muḥammad al-Mahdi al-Hujjah, in full Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn Ali al-Mahdi al-Hujjah, also called Muhammad al-Muntazar, the Hidden Imam or the Twelfth Imam, (disappeared 878), 12th and last imam, venerated by the Ithnā ʿAshariyyah, or Twelver sect, the main body of Shīʿite Muslims. It is believed that Muhammad al-Mahdī al-Hujjah has been concealed by God (a doctrine known as ghaybah or occultation ) and that he will reappear in time as the mahdī, a messianic deliverer.

John Lennox (famous mathematician): Seven Days that Divide the Word. Exerpts:

Chapter-2: The first obvious, yet important thing to say about the Bible is that it is literature. I am a scientist who believes scripture to be the Word of God. Of course God, who is spirit, does not have a physical voice box, but he can communicate.

Pretty much there is not much of difference between Judaism, Islam and Christianity. They all include some sort of insanity. The bigest problem with islam would be still accepting the Quran literally word by word. Degree of insanity they would like to ignore will be highly depend upon human development level of their society. Therefore, an avarage muslim in Pakistan would have much different standards than that of in Germany.

Ahmadi muslim and Bahai muslim abhor Wahabi, Deobandi and other sects. But they believe in massacre of infidels on kayamat (sort of judgement day). It just could be something like "whatever floats your boat". Go to any Islamic country stand up and announce you are an atheist or a gay person or just question any aspect of Islam...........you will find out quickly how peaceful the religion is. किसी भी इस्लामिक देश में जाकर खड़े हो जाओ और घोषणा करो कि तुम नास्तिक हो, या समलैंगिक व्यक्ति हो, या बस इस्लाम के किसी भी पहलू पर सवाल उठाते हो ... आपको जल्दी ही पता चल जायेगा कि धर्म कितना शांतिपूर्ण है।

The Islamic State isn't misrepresenting Islam but representing its purest form. The core of Islam is Allah, the perfect creator. Thus, there should be no reason to circumcise children (both mboys and girls). The core of Islam is global submission by any means necessary. इस्लामिक स्टेट इस्लाम को गलत तरीके से पेश नहीं कर रहा है बल्कि उसके शुद्धतम रूप का प्रतिनिधित्व कर रहा है। इस्लाम का मूल अल्लाह, सब से बढ़िया निपुण रचनाकार है। इस प्रकार, बच्चों का खतना करने का कोई कारण नहीं होना चाहिए। इस्लाम का मूल आवश्यक किसी भी तरह से वैश्विक प्रबलता है।

Their newest weapon is sympathy - they claim that they are being targeted in non-Muslim countries. If God "Allah" wants all humanity to follow Islam then why he didn't send many Mohammads to Europe, Rome, Greek, Mongolia, China and Persia.....Wouldn't it be easier than a long way Caliphate? Aren't Buddhists supposed to be pacifists and detach themselves from worldly matters like politics? Good to know that it isn't just the Abrahamic faiths that are full of hypocrites. Islam is terrified of its critics, because they know they literally have no way to defend their nonsense cult. In fact, Islam died in debate years ago.

We are all terrified that the religion of "peace and brotherhood" will spread and destroy us with its message of love and peace and harmonious living, haha!. Islam is built on the four pillars, fear, terror, lies and conquest. However the only pillar still standing is that of lies and only because of plenty help from western socialists. Terrorizing people who burn the quran is supposed to bolster islam by creating fear of islam but in the modern age of book printing the effect is more comical and makes islam appear primitive, out of touch with modern technology.

Go and try talking to a failed suicide bombers - who was on the path to the Prophet. Was it a miracle or did he made a mistake? Ever noticed how the media is sympathetic towards the muslims? People who like organized religion and religious hatred by using concepts of Kaphirs and non-believers and have no intellectual power to question should join Islam. जाओ और एक असफल आत्मघाती हमलावर से बात करने की कोशिश करो - जो पैगंबर के रास्ते पर था। क्या यह चमत्कार था या उसने कोई गलती की थी? कभी गौर किया है कि मीडिया कैसे मुसलमानों के प्रति सहानुभूति रखता है? वे लोग जो काफ़िरों और गैर-विश्वासियों की अवधारणाओं का उपयोग करके संगठित धर्म और धार्मिक घृणा को पसंद करते हैं और जिनके पास सवाल करने की कोई बौद्धिक शक्ति नहीं है, वे इस्लाम में शामिल हो सकते हैं।

Libertarded soul - trying to appear as someone "intolerant of intolerance". Japans prospects for victory were non existant but it would have cost over a million lives to stop them with hand to hand combat...they too had suicidal kamikaze mentality just like Islam encourages their people to adopt. History tells us religions will aways and have always protected there interest and values in many cases with violence. The only problem with Islamic fundamentalism is the fundamentals of Islam.

Every day some imam rants about the need for Muslims to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus, atheists, gays and everyone not Islamic and no one says a word. But let just one person commit any act showing displeasure with Islam and they call for Armageddon. हर दिन कुछ इमाम मुसलमानों को ईसाईयों, यहूदियों, हिंदुओं, नास्तिकों, समलैंगिकों को मारने की आवश्यकता के बारे में बताते हैं और हर कोई इस्लामिक नहीं है और कोई भी एक शब्द नहीं कहता है। लेकिन सिर्फ एक व्यक्ति को इस्लाम के प्रति नाराजगी दिखाने वाले किसी भी कार्य को करने दें और वे नरसंहार की बात करने लगेंगे.

Every major religion in this world will collapse if people ask logical questions. People are expected to adhere to religious tenets only on the basis of blind faith. So, whichever religion allows the human intellect to blossom and satisfy itself through logical conclusions will only flourish in future. इस दुनिया में हर बड़ा धर्म ध्वस्त हो जाएगा अगर लोग तार्किक सवाल पूछें। लोगों से यह अपेक्षा की जाती है कि वे अंध विश्वास के आधार पर केवल धार्मिक सिद्धांतों का पालन करें। इसलिए, जो भी धर्म मानव बुद्धि को तार्किक निष्कर्ष के माध्यम से खिलने और संतुष्ट करने की अनुमति देता है, वह भविष्य में ही फलता-फूलता रहेगा।

Read the Hadiths and it will explain all there is about Sharia...its being able to marry four women, its being able to have FGM performed on your daughter, its about owning slaves, its about dogs being haram and chasing Muslim angels away. Its about death for leaving Islam or for criticizing the prophet, its about how hard it is for a woman to get a divorce....and if she does he keeps the kids, its about women walking behind the man and not being able to pray with her own husband but stay in the back....its about women being covered up like a black baggie in summer while the man looks cool in his Izod shirt and shorts and sandels...like any western guy while his wife is made fun of...Its about announcing to the world that a little girl has her period and putting her in a hijab ....Not in the West but in other countries its a signal she is ready for marriage................on and on.

The peace in Iscam is submission, oppression and jizyah (when in the majority) but a lesser jihad when in the minority. Islam’s peace everyone else’s enslavement. The P in Islam stands for peace. Talk to any muslim and all of them shall say "prove me wrong and educate yourself". Muslims should get education because they limit their life with a book that teaches you to beat your women and enslave them or kill the unbelievers so you can have 72 virgins in heaven!

Being destitute doesn’t cause terrorism of the Islamic variety. It’s been passed on through centuries and it is encouraged in madrassas, Islamic schools and mosques the world over. These terrorist groups and fundamentalist Muslim groups that have grown now even in Western countries all say they want to establish a sharia ruled state (which is why the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown as they would have changed Egypt’s culture.) This is a threat to every secular government country.

Islam’s morally depraved teachings has given them a warped sense of morality. For a book they shall riot or kill, but if a muslim blows up some kids at a concert, for example, they would not be bothered. Muslims lay bare their stupidity with an uncurbed enthusiasm for a demented god and duplicitous warlord of the murderous kind. It’s a kind of moral retardation and one that is very difficult to reason with.

It is easy to blame other countries, but one can’t blame other countries for a religious ideology that has been a problem for centuries and is not the making of Western powers. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, for three, pour millions of dollars into spreading Islam and jihad which is commanded by Islam. अन्य देशों को दोष देना आसान है, लेकिन आप एक धार्मिक विचारधारा के लिए अन्य देशों को दोष नहीं दे सकते हैं जो सदियों से एक समस्या है और पश्चिमी शक्तियों का निर्माण नहीं है। सऊदी अरब, कतर, तुर्की, तीनों के लिए, इस्लाम और जिहाद फैलाने में लाखों डॉलर खर्च करते हैं जिसकी कमान इस्लाम के पास है।

मक्का जितने पर मोहम्मद ने किसी का भी कत्ल ना करने का वादा किया लेकिन मोहम्मद ने उन तमाम लोगों को खत्म कर दिया जिन्होंने उसे अल्लाह का रसूल नहीं माना था... जिन्होंने कुरान के जैसे ही सुरा, आयतें और कुरान जैसी किताब बनाकर मोहम्मद की चुनौती को पूरा किया था.. उसमे से कुछ नाम है - काम बिन अशरफ, मोहम्मद बिन सलमा....मक्का की एक कवियित्री थी अस्मा बिन्त मरवान, जिसने मोहम्मद के मक्का जितने के बाद मोहम्मद के विरोध मे कविताओं से लोगों को जागृत करने का प्रयास किया..मोहम्मद की निर्दयता का इससे बड़ा प्रमाण नहीं हो सकता है कि उसने अस्मा बिन्त मरवान का कत्ल उस समय करवाया जब वो अपने नवजात बच्चे को दूध पिला रहीं थीं....उम्म कीरफा - ये बुजुर्ग महिला थी जो कि बनू फाजरा कबीले की सरदार थी, इनके कबीले पर हमला करके इनको बंदी बना लिया गया और उम्म किरफा की दोनों टाँगों को दो ऊंटों से बाँध कर उन ऊंटों को विपरित चलाकर उसके शरीर के दो हिस्से कर दिए गए....

अल्लाह और कुरान के होने का आधार सिर्फ मोहम्मद है क्योकि मोहम्मद ने ये सब होने का दावा किया था ! अल्लाह के नाम पर चालाकी से मुहम्मद खुद की पूजा करवाना चाहता था, इसलिये उसने एक मंत्र भी बनाया, जिसमे अल्लाह के साथ उसका भी नाम लिया जाये! उस मंत्र को कलिमा कहते हैं. मंत्र है, "ला इलाहलिल्लाहू मुहम्मद्दुर रसुल्ल्लाहू". इस अरबी वाक्य का अक्षरशः अर्थ है, “केवल अल्लाह की पूजा हो सकती है. मुहम्मद अल्लाह का रसूल है|” अगर कोई काफ़िर कलिमा को अपने ईष्टदेव की निंदा कहे और पंथनिरपेक्ष पूजा न माने, तो उसे भारतीय दंड संहिता की धाराओं १५३ व २९५ के अधीन - दंड प्रक्रिया संहिता की धारा १९६ के अंतर्गत राष्ट्रपति और राज्यपाल जेल भेजवाने के लिए विवश हैं. कोई जज कुरान के विरुद्ध सुनवाई नहीं कर सकता. (एआईआर, कलकत्ता, १९८५, प१०४).

  • सवाल: मौहम्मद ही सच मे अरबी अल्लाह का दूत है, इसका क्या सबूत है? मुस्लिम: क्योकि कुरान मे लिखा है !
  • सवाल: कुरान के लिखे पर कैसे विश्वास किया जाए की ये क्या कहती है, क्या नही ?
  • मुस्लिम: क्योकि हमारे अल्लाह ने कुरान को भेजा है!
  • सवाल: क्या सबूत है अल्लाह ही सचमुच ईश्वर है और कुरान की बाते अल्लाह का पैगाम है?
  • मुस्लिम: क्योकि हमारे रसूल मौहम्मद ने ऐसा कहा है! अब यहा फिर शुरू से पहला सवाल पूछना पडेगा और आखिरी सवाल पर आखिरी सवाल पर आना पड़ेगा ये तो कुछ ऐसे हुआ जैसे कि "मै खुदा हू और इसका सबूत ये है कि मै कह रहा हूँ ."
क्योकि मुहम्मद अरब का था तो उसने अरबी अल्लाह ,अरबी फरिश्ते, कुरान अरबी मे, नबी अरब के, हज अरब मे और अरबी इबादती तरीको को मिलाकर अरबी साम्राज्यवाद को इस्लाम का नाम दे दिया! इस तरह वो अपनी करतूतो को धर्म का जामा पहिना कर उसे जायज बना देता था, और अपनी बेतुकी बातों को अल्लाह का आदेश बता देता था और लालची, अज्ञानी अरब उसे मान लेते थे ! आज मुस्लिम अपने अरबी मजहब की चमकदार मार्केटिंग करने के लिए और शरियत का माहौल तैयार करने के लिए जी जान से जुटे रहते है ! लेकिन अंदर से इन्हे अपने मजहबी झूठ के पर्दाफाश हो जाने का भय सताता रहता है और इस झूठ के बोझ को संभालने के लिए मुसलमान कैसे रात दिन एक कर देते है, एक आनलाइन डिबेट मे इसका नमूना देखिए :
  1. बसे पहले मुस्लिम बोलते है कि ये सब तथ्यहीन आधारहीन है, अज्ञानता है, इस्लाम मे कोई जबरदस्ती नही है! अगर आप रैफरेंस देंगे वो सिरे से नकार देंगे और आपको पूरी तरह कुरान स्टड़ी करने को बोला जायेगा तभी रोशनी मिलेगी !
  2. अगर आप कुरान और हदीसो के हवाले देंगे तो आपको बोलेगे कि तुमने आयते अधूरी समझी है, आयतो को गलत संदर्भ मे लिया है और उन आयतो मे लडाई का मतलब उस समय के युद्ध से था (यानि इससे मुस्लिम यह दिखाना चाहते है कि अब हम दुनियाभर मे जेहाद नही कर रहे है)
  3. अगर आप संपूर्ण आयतो और हदीसो का हवाला देंगे तो वो कहेंगे आपका अनुवाद गलत है और आपको अरबी सीखने के साथ आरिजनल वर्जन पढ़ने को बोला जायेगा!
  4. अगर आप कहेंगे कि आप अरबी भी जानते है साथ ही आपके पास प्रमाणित अनुवाद और सारी जानकारी उन्ही प्रमाणित रिसोर्स से है जिससे सर्वश्रेष्ठ मुस्लिम स्कालर्स हवाला देते है, तो मुसलमान कहेंगे कि हदीसे पढ़ना भी जरूरी है ... अगर आप हदीस से सच साबित करेंगे तो वे कहेंगे कुरान ही एकमात्र सच है!
  5. इन सबके बाद अगर आप जारी रखते है तो वे इस मुद्दे से बात घुमाने के लिये दूसरे टापिक उठायेंगे जैसे गरीबी, इंसानियत, शांति, फिलिस्तीन, इजराइल, अमेरिका वगैरह वगैरह !
  6. अगर आप कहेंगे कि कुरान इंसान ने लिखी है तो वे Dr Maurice Bucalie की किताब का हवाला देकर सुनिश्चित करेंगे कि कुरान मे विज्ञान भी है ! जबकि असल मे Dr. Bucalie सऊदी अरब से पैसे लिया करता था और Dr. Bucalie को कई विशेषज्ञो ने गलत और झूठा साबित कर दिया है !
  7. अब फिर मुस्लिम बोलेंगे कि ये सब वैस्टर्न मीड़िया का प्रौपगेंड़ा है इस्लाम को बदनाम करने का !
  8. अगर आप फिर भी सच सामने लायेंगे तो वे दूसरे मजहबो मे की किताबो मे कमियां निकालेंगे जैसे बाइबल, तोराह, वेद, गीता, आदि !
  9. लेकिन हद तो यहा है कि जिन किताबो को ये नही मानते उन्ही किताबो मे ये अपने मोहम्मद जी को अवतार भी दिखायेंगे ... और इस्लाम को जबरदस्ती विज्ञान से जोड़गे! (मतलब किसी भी तरह से हर हाल मे इस्लाम और मौहम्मद जी की मार्केटिंग करते रहते है ! इस तरह ये हमेशा काफिरो को थकाकर और उलझा कर रखते है !)
  10. अगर आप न रूके तो मुसलमान द्वारा आपको जाहिल झुठा, कुत्ता, जालिम वगैरह के साथ मां बहन की गाली और निजी हमले किये जायेंगे |
  11. अब ये रट्टा लगायेंगे कि "इस्लाम तेजी से फैल रहा है" लेकिन जैसे ही सच्चाई सामने लायी जाये तो ये चिल्ला भी पड़ेंगे इस्लाम खतरे में है !
  12. अगर फिर भी आप असली मुद्दे पर अड़े रहेंगे तो मुसलमान बोलेंगे तुम जहुन्नम मे जाओगे ...आखिरी दिन तुम्हारा हिसाब होगा ...तुम पर अल्लाह का आजाब होगा ..अल्लाह तुम्हारे साथ ये कर देगा.. वो कर देगा, वगैरह वगैरह!
  13. और आखिर में जब सब फेल हो जायेगा तो अब मुसलमान धमकाने पर आ जायेंगे जैसे तुम्हे देख लूंगा, बचके रहना, अपना नंबर और एड्रेस बताओ !
  14. और आखिर में डरकर बंदा चुप हो जायेगा तो ये ढोल पीटेंगे और कहेंगे कि हमने डिबेट जीत ली है, इस्लाम जीत गया है ...इस्लाम जिंदाबाद! इसलिए मुसलमान ऊपर से जैसे भी हो पर उनके दिलोदिमाग में,नसो में इस्लाम गूंजता रहता है!


कम्युनिस्ट और इस्लाम का गठबंधन केवल भारत में है...जबकि एक भी कम्युनिस्ट देश ऐसा नहीं है जहाँ इस्लाम को छूट हो....और एक भी इस्लामिक राष्ट्र ऐसा नहीं जहाँ पर कम्युनिस्टों पर प्रतिबंध ना लगा हो!

Official written copy by Uthman

The Quran was originally revealed in Quraishi dialect of Arabic (source?). But to facilitate the people who speak other dialects, in their understanding and comprehension, Allah revealed the Quran finally in seven dialects of Arabic. During the period of Caliph Uthman (third successor to the Prophet) differences in reading the Quran among the various tribes became obvious, due to the various dialectical recitations. Dispute was arising, with each tribe calling its recitation as the correct one. This alarmed Uthman, who made an official copy in the Quraishi dialect, the dialect in which the Quran was revealed to the Prophet and was memorized by his companions. Thus, this compilation by Uthman's Committee is not a different version of the Quran (like the Biblical versions) but the same original revelation given to the Prophet by One God, Allah.

Narrated Anas bin Malik: Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman came to Uthman at the time when the people of Sham (Syria) and the people of Iraq were waging war to conquer Armenia and Azherbijan. Hudhaifa was afraid of their differences in the recitation of the Quran, so he said to Uthman, 'O chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book (Quran) as Jews and Christians did before'. So Uthman sent a message to Hafsa saying, 'Send us the manuscripts of the Quran so that we may compile the Quranic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you'. Hafsa sent it to Uthman. 'Uthman then ordered Zaid bin Thabit, 'Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, Said bin Al-As and Abdur Rahman bin Harith bin Hisham to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies. Uthman said to the three Quraishi men, "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit on any point in the Quran, then write it in their (Quraishi) tongue". They did so, and when they had written many copies, Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied and ordered that all the other Quranic materials whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt…"

Again a very stringent criteria was set up by this Committee to prevent any alteration of the Revelation.
  1. The earlier recension (original copy prepared by Abu Bakr) was to serve as the principal basis of the new one.
  2. Any doubt that might be raised as to the phrasing of a particular passage in the written text was to be dispelled by summoning persons known to have learned the passage in question from the Prophet.
  3. Uthman himself was to supervise the work of the Council.
When the final recension was completed, Uthman sent a copy of it to each of the major cities of Makka, Damascus, Kufa, Basra and Madina. The action of Uthman to burn the other copies besides the final recension, though obviously drastic, was for the betterment and harmony of the whole community and was unanimously approved by the Companions of the Prophet. Zaid ibn Thabit is reported to have said: "I saw the Companions of Muhammad (going about) saying, 'By God, Uthman has done well! By God, Uthman has done well!" Another esteemed Companion Musab ibn Sad ibn Abi Waqqas said: "I saw the people assemble in large number at Uthman's burning of the prescribed copies (of the Quran), and they were all pleased with his action; not a one spoke out against him". Ali ibn Abu Talib, the cousin of the Prophet and the fourth successor to the Prophet commented: "If I were in command in place of Uthman, I would have done the same".

Of the copies made by Uthman, two still exist today. One is in the city of Tashkent (Uzbekistan) and the second one is in Istanbul (Turkey). Below is a brief account of both these copies:

  1. The copy which Uthman sent to Madina was reportedly removed by the Turkish authorities to Istanbul, from where it came to Berlin during World War I. The Treaty of Versailles, which concluded World War I, contains the following clause:
    • Article 246: Within six months from the coming into force of the present Treaty, Germany will restore to His Majesty, King of Hedjaz, the original Koran of Caliph Othman, which was removed from Madina by the Turkish authorities and is stated to have been presented to the ex-Emperor William II.
    • This manuscript then reached Istanbul, but not Madina (where it now resides).
    • The second copy in existence is kept in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. It may be the Imam (master) manuscript or one of the other copies made at the time of Uthman.
  2. It came to Samarkand in 890 Hijra (1485) and remained there till 1868. Then it was taken to St. Petersburg by the Russians in 1869. It remained there till 1917. A Russian orientalist gave a detailed description of it, saying that many pages were damaged and some were missing. A facsimile, some 50 copies, of this mushaf (copy) was produced by S. Pisareff in 1905. A copy was sent to the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid, to the Shah of Iran, to the Amir of Bukhara, to Afghanistan, to Fas and some important Muslim personalities. One copy is now in the Columbia University Library (U.S.A.). The Manuscript was afterwards returned to its former place and reached Tashkent in 1924, where it has remained since.

Black Stone Broken
In 930 Qarmatians attacked Makkah. The Qarmatians’ army came up with their horses and entered Masjid al-Haram. They started massacring the pilgrims brutally. The reports indicate that about 30,000 pilgrims were killed as they were praying around the Kabah. The Qarmatians were taunting the pilgrims with the verses of Holy Quran as they were being killed.

Abu Tahir took away the Black stone and held in his possession. He took it to Masjid al Dirar so that it could be placed there. He wanted to make the Masjid a sacred place and redirect the Hajj from Makkah to Masjid al Dirar. But he never got what he wanted! The stone was taken away 23 years later by paying a huge ransom money. The Abbasids had to pay a huge amount of money to get the black stone back. The stone was broken down into seven pieces during its hostage and removal.

Christianism - Judaism

Is there an online repository of manuscripts of Bible, where was it found, under what conditions (rolled, flat, sandwiched between stones...)? This would be interesting database! क्या बाइबल की पांडुलिपियों का एक ऑनलाइन भंडार है, जहां यह पाया गया था, किस स्थिति में (पत्थरों के बीच सैंडविच, लपेटा हुआ, सपाट, ) ...? यह दिलचस्प डेटाबेस होगा!

Old Testament: Hebrew [written right-to-left] Bible or Torah, New Testament: originally written in Greek, not Hebrew or Aramaic. In OT, god is written as YHWH (all consonants - Y: yod, H: heh, W: wow, H: heh). Eloah is generic word for 'divinity'. In Latin, Y does not exist and I/J are variants of J. Thus, YHWH become Jehovah (JeHoWaH). Yahweh was used by St. Clement of Alexandria.

Few Bible versions: NIV - New International Version, NKJV - New King James Version, NLT - New Living Translation, ISV - International Standard Version.

Old Testament Books

Reference - Aish Rabbi: The Five Books of Moses – comprised of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy – was written down by Moses in 1273 BCE and includes all 613 commandments (mitzvahs). The Five Books of Moses has many names. It is referred to as the Bible (meaning 'book' in Greek), the Chumash (Hebrew for 'fifth'), the Pentateuch (Greek for "five scrolls") or generically 'Torah' – Hebrew for 'instructions', because its purpose is to instruct. In 500 CE, the Jewish people suffered an uprooting of their communities and two Babylonian rabbis – Rav Ashi and Ravina – compiled a 60-volume record of rabbinic discussions on the Mishnah, called the 'Gemara'. Together, the Mishnah and Gemara comprise what is commonly called the 'Talmud'.

Yeshua a name prevalent in Hebrew and Aramaic languages. Jesus is most prominently known for the name found in several current translations of the Bible such as King James Version (KJV), New International Version (NIV)....Greek translations have Yeshua listed as Yesous, Yeshua cannot be found among Christian Bibles today.

The meaning of Torah is often restricted to signify the first five books of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) traditionally ascribed to Moses, the recipient of the original revelation from God on Mount Sinai. Jewish, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant canons all agree on their order: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.

The Talmud, the book of Jewish law which stretches to well over 10 million words across 38 volumes. What were the native language of Luke, Paul, Matthew and Mark? The gospels are anonymous by definition. No person has ever claimed to be the author of any of the four gospels in the New Testament. Christian writer of the early 2nd century, Justin Martyr, only ever referred to the gospels as a group - as the "memoirs of the Apostles" but never as something written by any specific names. Despite extensively quoting the gospels, Justin Martyr never said that Matthew, Mark, Luke or John wrote those 'memoirs'. It was only at the end of the second century, 150 years after the events described in the gospels, that the Christian leader Iranaeus claimed to know that the gospels had specific authors, and he nominated Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as those authors, based on 'tradition'.

New Testament Books

Deuteronomy 32:44 - Moses came with Joshua son of Nun and spoke all the words of this song in the hearing of the people. In the Hebrew text, Joshua is named Yeshua bin-Nun (Neh. 8:17) and Yehoshua (1 Chron. 7:27). Elohim (Hebrew), Jehovas are used to refer to God in non-English versions. Jewish religion was alos polytheistic and Yahweh was a 'storm' god.

EL: God or gods in Hebrew, IsraEL: Struggle with God - Genesis 32: 24-32, GabriEL: strength of god, MichaEL: he who is like god, RaphaEL: medicine of god, DaniEL: God is my judge, El Gibbor: god of strength, El Shaddai: God almighty

What was Jesus' surname? No matter what language you speak, someones name is their name, to call them by any other name is pure arrogance and manipulation! When Yeshua is translated into Greek, which the New Testament is derived from, it becomes Iēsous, which in English spelling is 'Jesus'. As per scholar Ben Swett: Joshua = Yahshua = Yah + shuah. Yah is short for Yahweh, and shuah is from yeshuah which means "to save, save alive, rescue". Name and title

Ancient Jews usually had only one name, and, when greater specificity was needed, it was customary to add the father’s name or the place of origin. Thus, in his lifetime Jesus was called Jesus son of Joseph (Luke 4:22, John 1:45, 6:42), Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 10:38) or Jesus the Nazarene (Mark 1:24, Luke 24:19). After his death he came to be called Jesus Christ. Christ was not originally a name but a title derived from the Greek word christos, which translates the Hebrew term Messiah meaning "the anointed one".

Jesus is from Nazareth. The Apostle Matthew (author of the book of Matthew) was a tax collector for Rome before Jesus called him to be an apostle.

Basic of Christianity: Jesus sacrificed himself to himself to please (appease) himself as per the rules he made himself!


  1. Is Bible a text that does not need "added explanation and/or qualifications"?
  2. Is 'witching' a bad character? What about Wizard? Most computer has installation 'Wizard' or Start-up 'Wizard'!
  3. Which is the oldest church?
  4. If churches from the time of Jesus and mosques from the time of Mohammad could be preserved, why not their graves could be preserved?
  5. What were the numbers scribes used to enumerate verses in Quran and OT/NT?
Acts 4:13, NIV - When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

Christianism - Perscution of Sects

When English Protestants fled to Switzerland during the reign of the Catholic Queen Mary I, they drafted the Geneva Bible and used the Swiss spelling. Translators in England adopted the Geneva spelling by 1769.

Isaiah:37 (NIV) - 36 Then the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies!

Bye-bull as Divine Inspiration

2 Timothy 2[KJV]: 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2 Corinthians 11: 7 Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge?

Ephesians 5:25 ESV - Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her!

Jesus as Man

1 Timothy 2:5 (NIV) -5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.

John 5:26-27 NIV) - 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to judge because he is the Son of Man.

Matthew 20:28 (NIV) - 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

John 20:10-18 ESV - Then the disciples went back to their homes. But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus.

Matthew 26 - When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, "As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified." 23 Jesus replied, "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."

Peter Disowns Jesus: Matthew 26 - 69 Now Peter was sitting out in the courtyard, and a servant girl came to him. "You also were with Jesus of Galilee", she said. 70 But he denied it before them all. "I don’t know what you’re talking about", he said.

Bible on Sun and Earth

Psalm 19:4, NIV - Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. Psalm 19:4, NLT - Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:5, NIV - The sun rises and the sun sets and hurries back to where it rises Matthew 24:29,ESV - Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Revelation 16:8-9, ESV - The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give him glory.

Bible on Re-birth
John 3:1-36, ESV - Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him." Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?" Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. ..."

Marriage between Cousins

It is permitted under Torah law for cousins to marry. The daughters of Zelophehad married their cousins (Numbers 36:11) so the practice has good precedent.
Idolatry in Christianity
Christinity is based on foundation of Angels and ghosts and spirit. This cult circumvents appearance of God as man by the name Theophany and not Idolatry.

Angels: Michael’s name means "who is like God". God gave Michael the responsibility of protecting us as God protects us. Gabriel’s name means "hero of God". Gabriel is God’s hero because he communicates God’s message to people. Gabriel is considered the best for being the angel who announced to Mary that she would be the mother of God’s only Son. Raphael’s name means "God has healed". In the Bible, Raphael heals a blind man and is said to have stirred the water in a pool where Jesus healed a paralyzed man.

And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: "Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth's abominations."

John 5: 2-4 (NKJV): Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.

Rosary: Within the Roman Catholic Church, the Rosary has five sets of ten beads. Each set of ten beads is called a decade. Each decade is separated by one large bead. Different prayers are recited for different beads. The "Our Father" or "Lord’s Prayer" is recited on the large bead while the "Hail Mary" is prayed on each of the small beads.

The Hail Mary prayer: Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. - Catechism of the Catholic Church. Libreria Editrice Vaticana. 1994. 2676. Revelation:1 NIV) - 12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man,[d] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne.

Joshua: 5 (NIV) - The Fall of Jericho - 13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, "Are you for us or for our enemies?" 14 "Neither", he replied, "but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come." Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, "What message does my Lord have for his servant?" 15 The commander of the Lord’s army replied, "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy." [Note: the same statement appeared when Moses saw god in burning bushes - Exodus:3] And Joshua did so.

Ezekiel: 1 (NIV) - 27 I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. 28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Matthew 1: 18 - This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19-Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

The Hebrew Scriptures document approximately forty polygamists, including such prominent figures as Abraham, Jacob, and David. 2 Samuel 5:13 - "After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him." 1 Kings 11:3 - "He (Solomon) had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines... 4 - As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father had been... 5 - He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites."

Let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the Lord our God.’ 19 But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand compels him. 20 So I will stretch out my hand and strike the Egyptians with all the wonders that I will perform among them.

My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Quran: C-003-V-030. On the Day when every person will be confronted with all the good he has done, and all the evil he has done, he will wish that there were a great distance between him and his evil. And Allah warns you against Himself (His punishment) and Allah is full of kindness to (His) slaves.

Exodus 3: (NIV) - Moses and the Burning Bush - Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3 So Moses thought, "I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up." 4 When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, "Moses! Moses!" And Moses said, "Here I am." 5 "Do not come any closer", God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground". 6 Then he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob". At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!

Mark 5:2–13 (ESV) - 2 And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain, for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out and cutting himself with stones. And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and wfell down before him. And crying out with a loud voice, he said, "What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of zthe Most High God? aI adjure you by God, do not torment me." For he was saying to him, "Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!" And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He replied, "My name is bLegion, for we are many." And he begged him earnestly not to send them out of the country. Now a great herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and they begged him, saying, "Send us to the pigs; let us enter them." So he gave them permission. And the unclean spirits came out and entered the pigs; and the herd, numbering about two thousand, rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the sea.

Bible on Sacrifices

Samuel: 2 (NIV) - 21 When her husband Elkanah went up with all his family to offer the annual sacrifice to the Lord and to fulfill his vow, 22 Hannah did not go. She said to her husband, “After the boy is weaned, I will take him and present him before the Lord, and he will live there always.”

Exodus 12: 11 - This is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it hurriedly: it is a passover offering to the LORD.

Samuel: 2 (NIV) - 24 After he was weaned, she took the boy with her, young as he was, along with a three-year-old bull,[e] an ephah[f] of flour and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the Lord at Shiloh. 25 When the bull had been sacrificed, they brought the boy to Eli, 26 and she said to him, "Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord."

Judges: 6 (NIV) - 19 Gideon went inside, prepared a young goat, and from an ephah of flour he made bread without yeast. Putting the meat in a basket and its broth in a pot, he brought them out and offered them to him under the oak.

Acts 14:13 (NIV) 13 The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.

Ezekiel 43:21 (NIV) You are to take the bull for the sin offering and burn it in the designated part of the temple area outside the sanctuary. Hebrews 9:13 (NIV) The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. Numbers 15 (NIV) - 3 and you present to the Lord food offerings from the herd or the flock, as an aroma pleasing to the Lord - whether burnt offerings or sacrifices, for special vows or freewill offerings or festival offerings 4 then the person who brings an offering shall present to the Lord a grain offering of a tenth of an ephah[a] of the finest flour mixed with a quarter of a hin of olive oil. 5 With each lamb for the burnt offering or the sacrifice, prepare a quarter of a hin of wine as a drink offering.

If God hates human sacrifice, how could Jesus’ sacrifice be the payment for our sins? Bible makes it clear that God hates human sacrifice. The pagan nations that surrounded the Israelites practiced human sacrifice as part of the worship of false gods. God declared that such 'worship' was detestable to Him and that He hates it (Deuteronomy 12:31; 18:10). Furthermore, human sacrifice is associated in the Old Testament with evil practices such as sorcery and divination, which are also detestable to God (2 Kings 21:6). So, if God hates human sacrifice, why did He sacrifice Christ on the cross and how could that sacrifice be the payment for our sins?

God established the necessity of the shedding of blood to cover sin (Hebrews 9:22). In fact, God Himself performed the very first animal sacrifice to cover, temporarily, the sin of Adam and Eve. After He pronounced curses upon the first couple, He killed an animal, shedding its blood, and made from it a covering for Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:21), thereby instituting the principle of animal sacrifice for sin. When God gave the Law to Moses, there were extensive instructions on how, when, and under what circumstances animal sacrifices were to be offered to Him. This was to continue until Christ came to offer the ultimate, perfect sacrifice, which made animal sacrifice no longer necessary. “But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins, because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins” (Hebrews 10:3–4).

Exodus 13:2 Consecrate to me every first-born that opens the womb among Israelites, both man and beast, for it belongs to me. Genesis 22:1-18: Take your son, your only son – yes, Isaac, whom you love so much – and go to the land of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will point out to you.

Christians are those who believe Muhammad is a false prophet! There is no “Old Testament God” and “New Testament God.” Both accounts (as well as all teachings of Jesus) are of the same God. Everything we know to be true of God in the Old Testament is still true of Him in the New, and vice versa. Our knowledge of the New Testament shapes the way we read the Old and so it goes the other way around.

Bible on Prohibitions such as Food

Exodus 12: Speak to the whole community of Israel and say that on the tenth of this month each of them shall take a lamb to a family, a lamb to a household. But if the household is too small for a lamb, let him share one with a neighbor who dwells nearby, in proportion to the number of persons: you shall contribute for the lamb according to what each household will eat...

Curses of Jesus

"Woe unto thee" is the prophetic equivalent of a curse.

Luke 14: 26 If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters - yes, even their own life - such a person cannot be my disciple.

Matthew 10: 34 Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn "a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law 36 a man's enemies will be the members of his own household. 37 Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.

Luke 12: 49 "I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 But I have a baptism to undergo, and what constraint I am under until it is completed! 51 Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.

The Cities Jesus Cursed: The three cities of Bethsaida, Korazim, and Capernaum were the three largest and most important along the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee in Jesus day. Bethsaida, which literally means house of fishing, seems to have been the most populated city in Galilee. John 1:44 tells that the apostles Philip, Andrew, and Peter were from Bethsaida where Jesus was most active in his early ministry.

Mathew 11:20 - Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent. 21 "Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day. 24 But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you."

In Matthew 11:20-24 and Luke 10:13-15 where Jesus denounced/upbraided/cursed Chorazin, along with Bethsaida and Capernaum because the people rejected him in spite of the fact that in these cities Jesus spent a lot of time teaching and performed most of his miracles. The moral implication of receiving more revelations of God is to repent. Yet the people of Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum did not repent. Before we make excuses for them that a prophet is not recognized in his hometown, these are not Jesus’ hometowns.

Women in Bible

Genesis 3:16 (NIV) To the woman he said, "I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you."

1 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV) - But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head - it is the same as having her head shaved.

Corinthians 11:11-12: Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God. Corinthians 11:8-9: For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.

Corinthians 14:34-35: The women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.

Luke 16:18: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. Luke 19.27 But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me."

Luephesians 5.22: Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23-For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24-Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

Timothy 2:11-15: 11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.

Deuteronomy 22:5: A woman shall not wear a man's garment, nor shall a man put on a woman's cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God. [Note: where are the garments for men and women are defined in OT / NT?]

John 6:53-57: Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me.

When the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ, why do they still look and taste like bread and wine? Does the bread cease to be bread and the wine cease to be wine?

Matthew 26:26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is my body."

Excerpts from "Beginning with Torah Basics" - Wiley: The Torah, also known as the Five Books of Moses, is the most sacred object and the most important text of the Jewish people. As a sacred scroll found in every synagogue throughout the world, it’s referred to as a sefer Torah (say-fehr toe-rah; Torah scroll); as a bound book, it’s referred to as a chumash (khuh-mahsh; five). The Torah is more than a text, though; it’s also the spiritual tradition of the Jewish people, communicated by God (the Creator and Master of the universe) to Moses (the greatest prophet of the Jewish people) on Mount Sinai in 1280 BCE and handed down from generation to generation.

Flat Earth in Bible

In 1633, the Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church forced Galileo Galilei, one of the founders of modern science, to recant his theory that the Earth moves around the Sun. Under threat of torture, Galileo – seen facing his inquisitors – recanted. But as he left the courtroom, he is said to have muttered, ‘all the same, it moves’. Last week, 359 years later, the Church finally agreed. At a ceremony in Rome, before the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Pope John Paul II officially declared that Galileo was right. The formal rehabilitation was based on the findings of a committee of the Academy the Pope set up in 1979, soon after taking office. The committee decided the Inquisition had acted in good faith, but was wrong. Reference: newscientist.com/article/mg13618460-600-vatican-admits-galileo-was-right.

1 Chronicles 16:30 - Tremble before him, all the earth! The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.

Psalm 93: 1 - The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength; indeed, the world is established, firm and secure. Psalm 104:5 - He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. Psalm 96:10 [NKJV] - Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: he shall judge the people righteously.

Job 9:8 - He alone stretches out the heavens and treads on the waves of the sea. Job 37:18 [NKJV] - Hast thou with him spread out the sky, which is strong, and as a molten looking glass? Job 38:13 [NKJV] - That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

Isaiah 45:12 - [NKJV] I have made the earth, And created man on it. I - My hands - stretched out the heavens, And all their host I have commanded.

Ask religious apologists: You aren't the first to impose upon me the old hoary arguments in defense of some literal Biblical interpretation. "Find me a Biblical passage that clearly says (or even vaguely suggests) that the earth is anything like a sphere and that it rotates with respect to the heavens and moves in a circle around the Sun. Surely, from a God's heavenly point of view, he/she/it would know that."

  • If the Bible really is the "word of God", then why didn't this supposedly all-powerful God make it clear, accurate and unambiguous?
  • Why would God not use word relating to scientific matters when there were more specific words available?
  • Where was this all powerful God when his 'Words' were being assembled into the Bible and later when it was being translated into other languages?
  • All the evidence from the Bible and from science suggests that if there is a God who 'created' the world and 'wrote' the Bible, it is a God who just doesn't give a damn anymore when people of twenty-first centry are trying to make meanings out of Bible!
  • Maybe he realized he botched the whole project and has gone off somewhere to do other things. One may even conjecture He didn't give a damn all along.

Slavery in Bible

Halakhah (Jewish law), decreed by the Rabbis, forbade Jews to enter gentiles’ homes.

The religion which grew from a slave women is talking about caste system! Genesis 16: 3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. 4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived. 6 "Your slave is in your hands", Abram said. "Do with her whatever you think best". Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.

1 Peter 2: 18 Slaves, in reverent fear of God submit yourselves to your masters, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. 21 To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. Matthew 24:45-51 (NET: New English Translation): The Faithful and Wise Slave - 45. Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves their food at the proper time? 46. Blessed is that slave whom the master finds at work when he comes. 47. I tell you the truth, the master will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48. But if that evil slave should say to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49. and he begins to beat his fellow slaves and to eat and drink with drunkards, 50. then the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not foresee, 51. and will cut him in two, and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Colossians 3:22 [ESV] - Slaves, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not by way of eye-service, as people-pleasers, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.

Ephesians 6:5-7 [New International Version - NIV] - 5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people.

Ephesians 6:5-7 [NKJV] - 5 Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men.

Leviticus 25:44-46 [English Standard Version - ESV] - As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you. You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their clans that are with you, who have been born in your land, and they may be your property. You may bequeath them to your sons after you to inherit as a possession forever.

Exodus 21:2 [ESV] - When you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years, and in the seventh he shall go out free, for nothing. Exodus 21:20-21 [ESV] - When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave dies under his hand, he shall be avenged. But if the slave survives a day or two, he is not to be avenged, for the slave is his money. Exodus 21:26-27 [ESV] - When a man strikes the eye of his slave, male or female, and destroys it, he shall let the slave go free because of his eye. If he knocks out the tooth of his slave, male or female, he shall let the slave go free because of his tooth.

Exodus 21:1-36 [ESV] - Now these are the rules that you shall set before them. When you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years, and in the seventh he shall go out free, for nothing. If he comes in single, he shall go out single; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him. If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out alone. Then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl and he shall serve him forever.

Titus 2:9-10 [ESV] - Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.

Proverbs 22:7 [ESV] - The rich rules over the poor and the borrower is the slave of the lender.

Hitler and Christianity

On January 19, 1923, the Hasler Nachrichten reports: "Henry Ford is perhaps the biggest anti-semite of our time." The American automobile king was known in the twenties as the richest man in the world. The German Hitler movement grew and took strength from 1920 on under the direct, open and close participation of Ford. Only when Ford's public support was no longer necessary did he separate himself from anti-semitism. He continued to aid Hitler, however.

The Volksrecht (People's Rights) reported on September 19, 1945: The Ford works are accused of furnishing supplies regularly to the Nazis. The correspondent from TASS Agency in New York reports: "Documents discovered in Germany, as well as thorough investigation have proven that the American Ford Co. produced war materials for the Nazis and assisted German armaments before and during the war up to 1944. Before Pearl Harbor, Henry Ford himself approved the contracts between his factories and the Hitler government. In 1939 a gift of 50,000 marks is said to have been turned over to Hitler from representatives of the Ford works."

The strong financial connections between Sir Henry Deterding, head of the Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. and Hitler are well known and still fresh in the memory so that it is enough just to mention the name here. Konrad Heiden writes on this matter in his Hitler biography: "Direct and indirect financial connections to Henry Deterding. the great inspiration and donor to anti-bolshevist campaigns were not denied."

In 1927 an attack appeared against the anti-semites by C.A. Loosli: "The Evil Jews!" The author polemicizes mainly against the two literary leaders of anti-semitism, Henry Ford and Rosenberg. He uses the expressions "Ford and his swastika- confederates" (p. 57), "the German anti-semites in alliance with Ford" (p. 60) , "Mr. Ford and Mr. Rosenberg" (p. 33).

Hitler was made not only by German capital, but primarily by international and especially America capital that intervened decisively from the beginning, from ca. 1920, in the battle for power in Germany. If this German battle for power had been decided within the Weimar Republic by German means only, then Hitler would never have won. Hitler became the strongest man in Germany because he had access to the strongest international assistance. His strength and success can only be understood at all when this fact is taken into account.

Dowry in Bible

Genesis 34:12 ESV - Ask me for as great a bride price and gift as you will, and I will give whatever you say to me. Only give me the young woman to be my wife. Exodus 22:17 ESV - If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, he shall pay money equal to the bride-price for virgins.

Christianity as State Religion

Christianity is the favoured faith in 28 of the 40 countries with a preferred religion. More than half of the total provide funds or resources for religious education programmes that largely benefit the preferred religion, and a third provide funding or resources for religious buildings. Christian churches receive preferential treatment in more countries – 28 – than any other unofficial but favored faith. pewforum.org/2017/10/03/ many-countries-favor-specific-religions-officially-or-unofficially.

The word 'Easter' does not occur in Bible. It was a pagan festival named after Goddess Eostre. The festival and Goddess predates Christianity by thousands of years. Christian simply adopted it and thus Ester originially had nothing to do with Jesus!

Russian law designates Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism as the country’s 'traditional' religions, while also recognizing the "special contribution" of Russian Orthodox Christianity to Russian history.

In addition to the 30 countries in this analysis, another 19 nations have religious requirements for ceremonial monarchs who serve as their heads of state. Sixteen of these, including the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, are members of the Commonwealth of Nations with Queen Elizabeth II – also known as the Defender of the Faith – as their head of state. The other countries in this category are Denmark, Norway and Sweden.


  • Bible was not written originally in English but Hebrew! God did not know that English will one day spread acoss the world like wildfire!
  • The 'original' New Testament was written in Greek! King James edition published in 1611.
  • The Holy Bible is the final product of over two millennia of scholars playing broken telephone.
  • There were no title on the transcripts of Gospels (John, Luke, Matthew, Mark) - none of them were written by disciples of Jesus! Gosples of Matthew was written in third person using 'they' and 'he' and never 'we' and 'me'.
  • The Church did not come from the Bible, the Bible came from the Church.
  • The Vaticanus and the Sainiticus were both very corrupted manuscripts when they were found--written over, crossed out, and one was found in the trash can. Yet Hort and Westcott from the 19th century used both to create a terrible manuscript that all modern versions are based upon.

NT: starting lines - Christ is born of Mary, She conceives by the power of the Holy Ghost, Our Lord is named Jesus. 1.16: And Jacob begat a Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

Testimonies of supernatural events by people over 1000 years ago whether they refer to the Quran or the bible, are not credible accounts and are the weakest form of evidence. So we can safely say the Bible and the Quran are both wrong in that respect. And the Bible doesn't have 'multiple' witnesses. It has a claim by 1 person that there were multiple witnesses. That is quite an important distinction that many Christian don't seem to grasp.

Genesis: 2.21-23: 21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. 22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. ||| However, there are two versions of the creation in Genesis. In one, Eve was created at the same time as Adam.

Who told the serpent what the effects of eating the fruit would be? If God knows everything in advance then it knew that Adam and Eve was going to eat the fruit so why act all surprised for?

Virgins in Bible The Parable of the Ten Virgins: Matthew 25: At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.

6 At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ 7 Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ 9 ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

11 Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ 12 But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’ 13 Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

Isaiah 7:14 / Matthew 1:23 ESV - Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel (which means, God with us). Esther 2:2 ESV - Then the king's young men who attended him said, “Let beautiful young virgins be sought out for the king. Psalm 68:25 ESV - The singers in front, the musicians last, between them virgins playing tambourines.

Ezekiel 44:22 ESV - They shall not marry a widow or a divorced woman, but only virgins of the offspring of the house of Israel or a widow who is the widow of a priest.
Many wives and concubines in Bible:

1 Samuel 18:27: 27 Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife.

1 Samuel 25 39 And when David heard that Nabal was dead, he said, Blessed be the Lord, that hath pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and hath kept his servant from evil: for the Lord hath returned the wickedness of Nabal upon his own head. And David sent and communed with Abigail, to take her to him to wife. 40 And when the servants of David were come to Abigail to Carmel, they spake unto her, saying, David sent us unto thee, to take thee to him to wife.

41 And she arose, and bowed herself on her face to the earth, and said, Behold, let thine handmaid be a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my lord. 42 And Abigail hasted, and arose and rode upon an ass, with five damsels of hers that went after her; and she went after the messengers of David, and became his wife.

Dividing the Spoils

Numbers: 31 (NIV) - 25 The Lord said to Moses, 26 “You and Eleazar the priest and the family heads of the community are to count all the people and animals that were captured. 27 Divide the spoils equally between the soldiers who took part in the battle and the rest of the community. 28 From the soldiers who fought in the battle, set apart as tribute for the Lord one out of every five hundred, whether people, cattle, donkeys or sheep. 29 Take this tribute from their half share and give it to Eleazar the priest as the Lord’s part. 30 From the Israelites’ half, select one out of every fifty, whether people, cattle, donkeys, sheep or other animals. Give them to the Levites, who are responsible for the care of the Lord’s tabernacle.” 31 So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the Lord commanded Moses. 32 The plunder remaining from the spoils that the soldiers took was 675,000 sheep, 33 72,000 cattle, 34 61,000 donkeys 35 and 32,000 women who had never slept with a man. 36 The half share of those who fought in the battle was: 337,500 sheep, 37 of which the tribute for the Lord was 675; 38 36,000 cattle, of which the tribute for the Lord was 72; 39 30,500 donkeys, of which the tribute for the Lord was 61; 40 16,000 people, of whom the tribute for the Lord was 32. 41 Moses gave the tribute to Eleazar the priest as the Lord’s part, as the Lord commanded Moses.

42 The half belonging to the Israelites, which Moses set apart from that of the fighting men— 43 the community’s half—was 337,500 sheep, 44 36,000 cattle, 45 30,500 donkeys 46 and 16,000 people. 47 From the Israelites’ half, Moses selected one out of every fifty people and animals, as the Lord commanded him, and gave them to the Levites, who were responsible for the care of the Lord’s tabernacle.

48 Then the officers who were over the units of the army—the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds—went to Moses 49 and said to him, "Your servants have counted the soldiers under our command, and not one is missing. 50 So we have brought as an offering to the Lord the gold articles each of us acquired—armlets, bracelets, signet rings, earrings and necklaces—to make atonement for ourselves before the Lord.”

51 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted from them the gold—all the crafted articles. 52 All the gold from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds that Moses and Eleazar presented as a gift to the Lord weighed 16,750 shekels. 53 Each soldier had taken plunder for himself. 54 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted the gold from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds and brought it into the tent of meeting as a memorial for the Israelites before the Lord.
Social Abomination in Bible

Numbers 5:12-28 (NIV) - 12 Speak to the Israelites and say to them: "If a man's wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him 13 so that another man has sexual relations with her, and this is hidden from her husband and her impurity is undetected (since there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in the act), 14 and if feelings of jealousy come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure—or if he is jealous and suspects her even though she is not impure- 15 then he is to take his wife to the priest. He must also take an offering of a tenth of an ephah of barley flour on her behalf. He must not pour olive oil on it or put incense on it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, a reminder-offering to draw attention to wrongdoing."

16 The priest shall bring her and have her stand before the Lord. 17 Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water. 18 After the priest has had the woman stand before the Lord, he shall loosen her hair and place in her hands the reminder-offering, the grain offering for jealousy, while he himself holds the bitter water that brings a curse. 19 Then the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, "If no other man has had sexual relations with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you". 20 But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have made yourself impure by having sexual relations with a man other than your husband— 21 here the priest is to put the woman under this curse—“may the Lord cause you to become a curse[b] among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.

Acts-7:8 Then he gave Abraham the covenant of circumcision. And Abraham became the father of Isaac and circumcised him eight days after his birth. Later Isaac became the father of Jacob, and Jacob became the father of the twelve patriarchs.

Jealous, Revengeful, Demanding God
Exodus-20: 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Exodus-25: The Lord said to Moses, 2 "Tell the Israelites to bring me an offering. You are to receive the offering for me from everyone whose heart prompts them to give. 3 These are the offerings you are to receive from them: gold, silver and bronze; 4 blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen; goat hair; 5 ram skins dyed red and another type of durable leather[a]; acacia wood; 6 olive oil for the light; spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense; 7 and onyx stones and other gems to be mounted on the ephod and breastpiece."

Life of Adam to Noah
Genesis-5 has the details of the lives of persons from Adam to Noah. The chapter mentioned multiple sons and daughters but the family tree is expanded with only one MALE member. Typical life span of early descendant of Adma is approx. 800 years. Genesis 11 outlines life of people after the flood.

Q: In the original manuscript, did they use numerals for numbers or words?

Genesis-9:11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.

13 John-5:28 "Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29 and come out - those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned." 1 *Corinthians-15: 16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. Job-7: 9 As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so one who goes down to the grave does not return. Ecc-9: 5 For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.
14 Deuteronomy-24:16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin. Exodus-20: 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me
15 2 Chronicles 25: Parents shall not be put to death for their children, nor children be put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin Deuteronomy-5: 9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me
16 Romans-5: 18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. ***Romans-5: 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many** were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many** will be made righteous.
17 Galatians 5: 2 Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. Philippians 3: 5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee. Luke 2:21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.
18 Mark 1:9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 12 At once the Spirit sent him out into the wilderness, 13 and he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him. 31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water. 34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. 35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; 36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! 37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
19 Matthew 2: After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem. 13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. "Get up", he said, take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Luke 1: 26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea. 56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.
20 John 3:13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven - the Son of Man. 2 Kings 2:11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind. Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: "He could not be found, because God had taken him away."
21 John 3:36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them. Matthew 19: 17 Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments." 21 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
22 Matthew 9:9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow me", he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. Mark 2:14 As he walked along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. "Follow me", Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed him.
23 John 1:21 They asked him, "Then who are you? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not". Mark 9:13 But I tell you, Elijah has come, and they have done to him everything they wished, just as it is written about him. Matthew 11: 14 And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come. Matthew 17:12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hand. 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.
24 Matthew 12:40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Mark 15:33 At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. 42 It was Preparation Day (that is, the day before the Sabbath). Matthew 28: After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
25 Mark 14: 16 The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. Luke 22:13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God. John 18: 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release "the king of the Jews"? John 19:14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon. "Here is your king", Pilate said to the Jews.
26 Matthew 17: After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. Luke 9:28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray. 29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus.
27 Exodus 4: 11 The Lord said to him, "Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord?" Lamentations 3: 32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. 33 For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone.
28 2 Thessalonians 2:11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. Ezekiel 14: 9 And if the prophet is enticed to utter a prophecy, I the Lord have enticed that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand against him and destroy him from among my people Israel.
29 Numbers 31:7 They fought against Midian, as the Lord commanded Moses, and killed every man. Judges 6:1 The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites.
30 Numbers 33: 38 At the Lord's command Aaron the priest went up Mount Hor, where he died on the first day of the fifth month of the fortieth year after the Israelites came out of Egypt. Deuteronomy 10: 6 The Israelites traveled from the wells of Bene Jaakan to Moserah. There Aaron died and was buried, and Eleazar his son succeeded him as priest. 7 From there they traveled to Gudgodah and on to Jotbathah, a land with streams of water.
31 Matthew 23:35 And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 2 Chronicles 24:20 Then the Spirit of God came on Zechariah son of Jehoiada the priest. He stood before the people and said, “This is what God says: ‘Why do you disobey the Lord’s commands?"
32 Mark 11: 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. [Jesus cursed the fig tree before purging the temple.] Matthew 21: 18 Early in the morning, as Jesus was on his way back to the city, he was hungry. 19 Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, "May you never bear fruit again!” Immediately the tree withered. 20 When the disciples saw this, they were amazed. "How did the fig tree wither so quickly?" they asked. [Jesus cursed the fig tree after purging the temple.]
33 Matthew 27:3 When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders. Act 1: 18 With the payment he received for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.
34 Mark 15: 25 It was nine in the morning when they crucified him. John 19:14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon. 16 Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
35 Luke 23:46 Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last. 44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. John 19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
36 Luke 24: Jesus appeared first to Celopas and Simon Peter, then to all eleven disciples; then he immediately ascended to heaven. John 20: Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene, then to most of the disciples, a week later to a larger group of disciples, and later still to the disciples while they were fishing.
37 Acts 7: 15 Then Jacob went down to Egypt, where he and our ancestors died. 16 Their bodies were brought back to Shechem and placed in the tomb that Abraham had bought from the sons of Hamor at Shechem for a certain sum of money. Genesis 50:13 They carried him to the land of Canaan and buried him in the cave in the field of Machpelah, near Mamre, which Abraham had bought along with the field as a burial place from Ephron the Hittite.
38 Galatians 4:22 For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman. Genesis 21: 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. Hebrews 11:17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son. 18 even though God had said to him, "It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned."
39 Revelations 8:7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. Revelations 9:4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle.
40 John 20:8-9 The disciples did not know or understand that Jesus was to rise from the dead. Luke 14:6-8: Matthew 20:17-19. 27:63-64: Mark 8:31, 10:34 Jesus had carefully explained to them in simple terms what was going to happen.

*1 Corinthians-15:51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Tarana-i-Milli (Song of the Religious Community) by Iqbal - तराना-ए-मिल्ली: इक़बाल

Note how Iqbal refers to the Ka'bah as an 'idol-temple'.
चीन-ओ-अरब हमारा हिन्दोस्ताँ हमारा, मुस्लिम हैं हम वतन है सारा जहाँ हमारा
Central Asia and Arabia are ours, Hindustan is ours. We are Muslims, the whole world is our homeland.
तौहीद की अमानत सीनों में है हमारे, आसाँ नहीं मिटाना नाम-ओ-निशाँ हमारा
The trust of Oneness is in our breasts, it is not easy to erase our identity.
दुनिया के बुत-कदों में पहला वो घर ख़ुदा का, हम इस के पासबाँ हैं वो पासबाँ हमारा
Among the world's idol-temples the first is that house of the Lord, we are its door-guards, it is our door-guard.
तेग़ों के साए में हम पल कर जवाँ हुए हैं, ख़ंजर हिलाल का है क़ौमी निशाँ हमारा
We were raised and have become youths, in the shadow of swords, the scimitar of the crescent moon is our 'group-related' sign.
मग़रिब की वादियों में गूँजी अज़ाँ हमारी, थमता न था किसी से सैल-ए-रवाँ हमारा
In the valleys of the west our call to prayer echoed, our moving flood did not stop on account of anyone.
बातिल से दबने वाले ऐ आसमाँ नहीं हम, सौ बार कर चुका है तू इम्तिहाँ हमारा
We are not, oh sky, ones to be oppressed by falsehood, a hundred times you've already tested us.
ऐ गुलिस्तान-ए-उंदुलुस वो दिन हैं याद तुझ को, था तेरी डालियों में जब आशियाँ हमारा
Oh garden of Andalusia! you remember those days, when our nest was in your branches.
ऐ मौज-ए-दजला तू भी पहचानती है हम को, अब तक है तेरा दरिया अफ़्साना-ख़्वाँ हमारा
Oh wave of the Tigris! you too recognize us, till now your river is our story-teller.
ऐ अर्ज़-ए-पाक तेरी हुर्मत पे कट मरे हम, है ख़ूँ तिरी रगों में अब तक रवाँ हमारा
Oh pure land! for your sacredness we have been cut down and have died, till now our blood moves in your veins.
सालार-ए-कारवाँ है मीर-ए-हिजाज़ अपना, इस नाम से है बाक़ी आराम-ए-जाँ हमारा
Our leader of the caravan is the Chief of the Hijaz, through that name the peace of our spirit lives on.
'इक़बाल' का तराना बाँग-ए-दरा है गोया, होता है जादा-पैमा फिर कारवाँ हमारा
Iqbal's song is the call of a bell, again our caravan is on the road.

Thiesm vs Athiesm
Athiesm Thiesm
It is my belief that there is not enough evidence to prove that God exists! Why should it offend to theist? The burden of proof lies equally on athiests!
As I do not have the evidences, I cannot say that the god does not exist. I can still question the way the existence of god is presented! One cannot argue that absence of evidence is the evidence of absence (of God).
Resonableness is demonstrated not asserted! God! Who else could it be?
Only argument a religion person has is the faith! Can a book written by a mortal be used as evidence of the super-natural!
The bible is not evidence, the bible is the claim. Evidence is needed that the claims made in the Bible are real, untill that time, I am not convinced by a book. There are too many instances of miracle and super-natural events.
Argumentum ad populum is a fallacious argument that concludes that a proposition must be true because many or most people believe it, often concisely encapsulated as: "If many believe so, it is so."
One thing often overlooked is that the Bible isn't alone in its claims. Other holy texts make similar claims of supernatural occurrences and in general, there are claims in the MILLIONS about supernatural things happening in the world.
The bible is evidence that a book exists. I know that the book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is 100% true because Dorothy was from Kansas and we know that Kansas exists.
Why does a Christian expect a book written by unknown authors in a variety of languages, that was translated, rewritten, edited countless times is evidence for anything?
Do all 4 gosples agree with each other? They are supposed to be ultimate truth. God loves us so much, he created hell, just in case we don't love him back. The Bible is not evidence of anything and has zero credibility.
So if a slave can choose between serving and getting beaten to death, that means he's free! "It says in the Bible!" - the standard go-to clause. This is the power and incessant drip-feeding of indoctrinaion. It utterly destroys the ability to think logically and critically.
Your failure to understand science does not prove the existence of god. Religious nutters don't seem to understand the difference between "X exists" and "I believe that X exists".
God is omni-protent, omni-present and omi-scient! Can he create a rock which he cannot lift?
The burden of proof is on the people making the outlandish claims. Atheists aren't claiming an invisible, jealous, genocidal, all powerful, all knowing being is constantly watching, picking who wins sporting events and awards, deciding who gets rich and making His naughty and nice lists. If one claimed, without any proof that someone else can actually see, he/she had an invisible friend compelling him/her to do "his/her works" up to and including killing anyone that questioned HIS existence he/she rightfully be in an asylum.....But all that's just Church on Sunday to the religious.
  • If God is omniscient (all-knowing) and hence would know what we want before we ask, isn't a prayer an insult to his powers?
  • Why all-knowing, all-powerful, omni-present God would need special places of worship or rituals?
  • If one prays and God grants his/her wishes, it proves God. If he/she prays and God does not grant his/her wish, it is God's wish (and does not dispprove God)! Only fools can buy this!
  • Anyone whose prayers work, would you please take time to pray for kids and females to stop being abused and flesh-traded? At least they shuld go to the casinos and earn large sum of money through prayers for people starving in the world!
  • If prayers worked, no man on the planet would be able to get his pants on!

The ferocity of the Christian struggles between Protestants and Catholics, which devastated Christian Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and finally drove Christians in desperation to evolve a doctrine of the separation of religion from the state.

The White Man's Burden

February 1899, British novelist and poet Rudyard Kipling wrote a poem entitled "The White Man’s Burden" urging the U.S. to take up the 'burden' of empire, as had Britain and other European nations. Published in the February, 1899 issue of McClure’s Magazine, the poem coincided with the beginning of the Philippine-American War and U.S. Senate ratification of the treaty that placed Puerto Rico, Guam, Cuba and the Philippines under American control. Theodore Roosevelt, soon to become vice-president and then president, copied the poem and sent it to his friend, Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, commenting that it was "rather poor poetry, but good sense from the expansion point of view". Not everyone was as favorably impressed as Roosevelt. The racialized notion of the poem became a euphemism for imperialism and many anti-imperialists couched their opposition in reaction to the phrase.
Take up the White Man's burden--
Send forth the best ye breed--
Go send your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need
To wait in heavy harness
On fluttered folk and wild--
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child.
सफेद आदमी का बोझ उठाएं
आगे आप सबसे अच्छी नस्ल भेजें
अपने पुत्रों को वनवास भेज दो
अपने बंदियों की जरूरत को पूरा करने के लिए
भारी दोहन में प्रतीक्षा करने के लिए
फड़फड़ाते  और जंगली लोग 
आपके नए पकड़े गए, सुस्त लोग
आधा शैतान और आधा बच्चा

Take up the White Man's burden
In patience to abide
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple
An hundred times made plain
To seek another's profit
And work another's gain.

Take up the White Man's burden--
The savage wars of peace--
Fill full the mouth of Famine
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest
The end for others sought,
Watch sloth and heathen Folly
Bring all your hopes to nought

Take up the White Man's burden--
No tawdry rule of kings,
But toil of serf and sweeper--
The tale of common things.
The ports ye shall not enter,
The roads ye shall not tread,
Go mark them with your living,
And mark them with your dead

Take up the White Man’s burden--
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better
The hate of those ye guard—
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah slowly) to the light:
"Why brought ye us from bondage,
Our loved Egyptian night?"

Take up the White Man's burden--
Ye dare not stoop to less--
Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloke your weariness;
By all ye cry or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples
Shall weigh your gods and you.

Take up the White Man’s burden-
Have done with childish days-
The lightly proffered laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years,
Cold-edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers!

Islamic Contradictions

Islam is the official religion in 27 countries in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa as well North Africa and the Middle East. Thirteen countries – including nine in Europe – are officially Christian, two (Bhutan and Cambodia) have Buddhism as their state religion, and one (Israel) is officially a Jewish state. No country has Hinduism as its state religion. And the Izlamists want a secular India!

Whatever may have been necessary or permissible during the Prophet’s lifetime…(That) …cannot be defended on the mere ground of its mention in the Koran. Every formula of every religion has in this age of reason, to submit to the acid test of reason and universal justice if it is to ask for universal assent. Error can claim no exemption even if it can be supported by the scriptures of the world. (Collected Works of Mahatma Gandhi, Vol. 30, p. 312)

Gandhi noted: "All religions are more or less true. All proceed from the same God, but all are imperfect because they have come down to us through imperfect human instrumentality." - (Young India, 29 May 1924, p. 180). In an article published in 1924, Gandhi asserts: "My own experience confirms the opinion that the Mussalman as a rule is a bully."

Check details of Haji Yaqoob Qureshi (biggest meat supplier in Meerut, slaughter houses at Hapur road) who announced a reward of Rs 51 crore for anybody who would kill the cartoonist of the Danish newspaper Jyllands Posten in 2006. In 2015, he invited the Charlie Hebdo killers to collect the reward from him in cash. Both SP and BSP coddled him.

What random ranting is this! Lets look at your country, Kuwait. It does not offer citizenship to ANY Indian before 20 years of stay. After 20 years, ONLY citizens practicing Islam can apply for citizenship. Is this the humanity and respect, you are preaching us Indians about?

Perpetual whining and victim card: PhD of Victimology! That is not real Islam - facinating objection. Islam makes a very large claim - the last and final religion and/or revelation.. Islam is the 'only' solution of everything -- sexuality, finance, diet, banking, after-life and in a bizarre hypocrisy, Islam does not like these claims to be questioned. Idea of perfect human being and idea of perfect book - each and every word (not even written down but receited) - a very questionable concept. Islam is the equivalent of the Third Reich for muslims. Religion is a personal choice but the muslim faith is a totalitarian ideology that seeks to dominate and proliferate into every part of society. There may be moderate muslims but their is no moderate islam.

Hindus and non-Muslims, even Shias, in Kuwait aren’t allowed public display of their faith or celebrate their festivals in public. There is ban on sale/available of non-Muslim religious literature in books shops. Kuwait prohibits and censors mention of Holocaust of Jews.

Saying Kashmir is an integral part of India is islamophobia now? Just clarifying. Always good to know the random changes to the definition of that made up word. Thumb rule: Hindus refusing to roll over and die is Islamophobia. This is applicable for Jews as well. The fact that we exist is Islamophobia!

When these Islamists accuse us Ex-Muslims of having left Islam for white women, they are actually expressing their own desires. With their inferiority complex, they always fantasize about sex with white women, but then they end up unwillingly marrying their own cousins instead.

There is no such thing as moderate Muslims! All of them, they either accept it silently or loudly. India must not give in to their demands and must stop all Muslims immigrants immediately from coming in to the country! One of the precepts of Islam is that every man must strive to Islamify the host country. To that extent at least there is no such thing as a moderate. They come not to integrate but eventually, as they are required to do to subjugate. As usual, liberal radicals always avoid the main questions.

Libertarded soul - trying to appear as someone "intolerant of intolerance". Wahabism and where it has taken the islamic community? Japans prospects for victory were non existant but it would have cost over a million lives to stop them with hand to hand combat....they too had suicidal kamikaze mentality just like Islam encourages their people to adopt. History tells us religions will aways and have always protected there interest and values in many cases with violence. The only problem with Islamic fundamentalism is the fundamentals of Islam.

Muslims make such a fuss about Christians being polytheists since they believe Jesus to be God and the son of God, but pointing out that practices and rituals like venerating the Kaaba amounts to idol worship and they'll want to hear nothing of it.

If you are unable to carry honour, put it in women's hymen. If you feel horny seeing a woman, put a burqa on them. If you can't stay loyal to a woman, marry four.

Most religions have their crazy ideas, many religions had their barbaric past.. Islam is the only one where people take the crazy serious enough to blow themselves up in the name of their gawd. The problem is Islam is doing it now, in the 21st century. No one is talking about some horrible violence done in the name of god hundreds of years ago, it is about today.

There are 57 countries with Muslim majority. Please name few of them which are role model for the rest of the world. मुस्लिम बाहुल्य वाले 57 देश हैं। कृपया उनमें से कुछ का नाम लें जो बाकी दुनिया के लिए रोल मॉडल हैं। We all know only muslims are fighting for survival in Ziniang, Afganistan, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Palestine, Nigeria...

They talks about bigotry towards Muslims, but in reality it is actually the Muslims who practice bigotry against anyone who is not muslim, that is why they segregate themselves so they can be set apart from the infidels. There would not be people afraid of Muslims if they weren't destroying countries, enslaving women and children and doing lone wolf attacks around the world. But of course we know they cannot and won't stop doing this because its what they are called to do according to Quranic teachings.

Religious liberty is not unlimited. China’s treatment of Uighurs may seem harsh but if the alternative is the rise of radical Islam that will tear the country apart, there is nothing wrong in it even if it is immoral. Similarly, while Muslims may be persecuted in India, the treatment of Christians and Hindus in Pakistan and its despicable anti-blasphemy laws make it at least understandable why a secular country such as India may feel threatened by Islam. A more nuanced approach to religious liberty is required if we have to combat the rise of religious terrorism.

Islamic Rebellions
Jahm bin Safwan: He was the first Muslim reeported to have spokeen about the createdeess of the Quran and reject Abraham's friendship with God and Moses' speaking to Him. He taught that only a few attributes can be predicated to God, such as creation, divine power and action, whilst others such as speech cannot. Therefore, he believed that it was wrong to talk about the eternal word of the Qur'an, since God (according to Jahm) is not a speaker in the first place. Jahm was a proponent of extreme determinism, according to which a man acts only metaphorically in the same way in which the sun is said to set: according to Jahm, this is a linguistic convention rather than an accurate description, as it is actually God that makes the sun set.
