Allah's Failure: Numerous Contradictions In The Koran

22

The Quran challenges unbelievers to find many contradictions within it in order to disprove its alleged divine origin: Do they not then consider the Qur’an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradictions. S. 4:82 Hilali-Khan I have therefore chosen to do just that, namely, provide a list of just some of the many egregious mistakes of the Quran. The following is taken from ex muslim ‘Abdallah ‘Abd al-Fadi’s monumental book, Is the Qur’an Infallible?, Part Nine: Lexical Questions, pp. 301-309, published by Light of Life, P.O. Box 13, A-9503, Villach, Austria. Have the words of the quran been changed? The Quran Claims Allah Regularly Edits and Changes the koran: “And when We exchange a verse in place of another verse – and God knows very well what He is sending down – they say, ‘Thou art a mere forger!’ Nay, but the most of them have no knowledge” (Sura al-NahI16:101); “And for whatever verse We abrogate or cast into oblivion, We bring a better or the like of it; knowest thou not that God is powerful over everything?” (Sura al-Baqara 2:106); “God blots out, and He establishes whatsoever He will; and with Him is the Essence of the Book” (Sura al-Ra’d 13:39). How Long Is One Day? One Thousand Years: “He directs the affair from heaven to earth, then it goes up to Him in one day, whose measure is a thousand years of your counting” (Sura al-Sajda 32:5). Fifty thousand Years: ”To Him the angels and the Spirit mount up in a day whereof the measure is fifty thousand years” (Sura al-Ma’arij 70:4). Does allah Permit Intercessors? Intercessors Permitted: “Surely your Lord is God, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then sat Himself upon the Throne, directing the affair. Intercessorthere is none, save after His leave [i.e., except by His permission]. That then is God, your Lord; so serve Him. Will you not remember?” (Sura Yunis 10:3). Intercessors Not Permitted: “Say: ‘To God belongs intercession altogether. His is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth; then unto Him you will be returned'” (Sura al-Zumar 39:44); “God is He that created the heavens and the earth, and what between them is, in six days, then seated Himself upon the Throne. Apart from Him you have no protector neither mediator [i.e., intercessor]; will you not remember?” (Sura al-Sajda 32:4). How Many Muslims in Paradise? Only a Few Muslims: “A throng of the ancients and how few of the later folk” (Sura al-Waqi’a 56:13,14). Many Muslims: “A throng of the ancients and a throng of the later folk” (Sura al-Waqi’a 56:39,40). Who Will Be Saved On Judgment Day? Muslims and Others like Jews and Christians: “Surely they that believe, and those of Jewry, and the Sabaeans, and those Christians, whosoever believes in God and the Last Day, and works righteousness – no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow” (Sura al-Malida 5:69). Muslims Only: “Whoso desires another religion than Islam, it shall not be accepted of him; in the next world he shall be among the losers” (Sura AI Imran 3:85). Is Pardoning Sanctioned? Yes, Pardon is allowed: “Surely the hour is coming; so pardon thou, with a gracious pardoning” (Sura al-Hijr 15:85). No, Do not Pardon: “O Prophet, struggle with the unbelievers and hypocrites, and be thou harsh with them; their refuge is Gehenna – and evil homecoming!” (Sura al-Tawba 9:72). Is Indecency Permitted in islam? No, allah Forbids It: “And whenever they commit an indecency they say, ‘We found our fathers practising it, and God has commanded us to do it.’ Say: ‘God does not command indecency; what, do you say concerning God such things as you know not?'” (Sura al-A’raf 7:28). Yes allah Allows it under some circumstances: “And when We desire to destroy a city, We command its men who live at ease, and they commit ungodliness therein, then the Word is realised against it, and We destroy it utterly” (Sura al-Isra’ 17:16). Is Hypocrisy Alright? Prohibit it: “Give thou good tidings to the hypocrites that for them awaits a painful chastisement. Those who take unbelievers for their friends instead of believers – do they seek glory in them? But glory altogether belongs to God” (Sura al-Nisa’ 4:138,139); “The hypocrites, the men and the women, are as one another; they bid to dishonour, and forbid honour; they keep their hands shut; they have forgotten God, and He has forgotten them. The hypocrites -they are the ungodly. God has promised the hypocrites, men and women, and the unbelievers, the fire of Gehenna, therein to dwell forever. That is enough for them; God has cursed them; and there awaits them a lasting chastisement” (Sura al-Tawba 9:67-68); “Hast thou not regarded those who have taken for friends a people against whom God is wrathful? They belong neither to you nor to them; and they swear upon falsehood, and that wittingly. God has made ready for them a chastisement terrible; surely they – evil are the things they have been doing. They have taken their oaths as a covering, and barred from God’s way; so there awaits them a humbling chastisement” (Sura al-Mujadila 58:14-16). Al-Baidawi said, “They have taken their oaths, which they made known, as covering, that is as your action against [the shedding of] your blood and [the forfeiting of] their possessions.” Allow It: “The Jews say, ‘Ezra is the Son of’; the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the Son of God.’ That is the utterance of their mouths, conforming with the unbelievers before them. God assail them! How they are perverted!” (Sura al-Tawba 9:30); “So the last remnant of the people who did evil was cut off. Praise belongs to God the Lord of all Being” (Sura al-An’am 6:45); “O believers, shall I direct you to a commerce that shall deliver you from a painful chastisement? You shall believe in God and His Messenger, and struggle in the way of God with your possessions and yourselves. That is better for you, did you but know. He will forgive you your sins and admit you into gardens underneath which rivers flow, and to dwelling-places goodly in Gardens of Eden; that is the mighty triumph” (Sura al-Saff 61:10-12); “And struggle for God as is His due, for He has chosen you, and has laid on you no impediment in your religion, being the creed of your father Abraham; He named you Muslims aforetime and in this, that the Messenger might be a witness against you, and that you might be witnesses against mankind (Sura al-Hajj 22:78).
