Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Allah: The Great Liar!

Allah has said in the Quran:

17:59:“And We refrain from sending the Signs, only because the men of the former generations treated them as false: We sent the She-camel to the Thamud to open their eyes, but they treated her wrongfully: We only send the Signs by way of terror (and warning from evil).”

To us, it is a very important verse of the Quran not because it lets us feel in Allah a sense of defeat, which He often suffered in the hands of the humans, but for the reason that it introduces Him to us in His true and real color of a great liar. Owing to this reason, we shall look at this verse a little bit more closely.

Even though the English rendering of this verse differs from translator to translator, all translators are, however, unanimous in that that the word “Signs” in it denotes those visible, and in many cases the palpable, miracles, which prophets presented to their people to prove that they were the prophets or the apostles of Allah.[1] The Quran clearly testifies to this fact.

Because it was Allah Himself who had told the Meccan Pagans that all the prophets and apostles of the past had to prove their prophethood to their people by having Allah cause, on their behalf, visible and palpable miracles, they demanded from Muhammad that he, too, must bring about at least one miracle to prove that he was, indeed, a prophet sent to them by Him to lead them to His righteous path. Since it was a major challenge from the Pagans to the Prophet of Islam, Allah became unduly agitated and brushing aside His irregular protocol, which required Him to dictate to Muhammad the responses He wanted him to give to his antagonists as well as to his followers with the word “Say” prefixed to each response, Allah personally appeared before the Meccan Pagans and told them what we are now able to read in the verse, thanks to the goat, which had failed to find, in the room of Aisha, the paper on which it was written down to satisfy its hunger.

Allah’s response to the Pagans was straight, concise and clear, it being: I have stopped sending miracles, because the men of former generations treated them as false. To drive home His position on miracle, together with indicating the period of time in which He made His decision not to cause it, He also told them: I had sent my miracle in the shape of a she-camel to the Thamud people to open their eyes, when apostle Salih was with them, but they treated her wrongly and killed her.[2] After that violent action of the Thamud, I decided to send to the humans only those Signs, which terrorize them.

In which era, or the period of time, apostle Salih had come to the Thamud people is not mentioned in the Quran, but we can safely conjecture that he must have preceded Moses and Jesus Christ by thousands of years. Which means (1) that Allah must have stopped sending visible and palpable miracles to the humans long before both Moses and Christ set their foot on earth and (2) that they did not perform any miracle to prove their prophethood to the people for want of approval, and help, from Allah.

Are we right in believing that Moses and Jesus Christ had performed no miracle, and if the same was also the case with Muhammad, who graced our earth after them? Let us see how the Quran answers our question.

Concerning Moses, it says:

2:60: “And remember Moses prayed for water for his people; We said: “Strike the rock with thy staff.” Then gushed forth therefrom twelve springs. Each group knew its own place for water. So eat and drink of the sustenance provided by Allah and do no evil nor mischief on the (face of the) earth.”

And again:

7:117: “We put ii into Moses’ mind by inspiration: “Throw (now) thy rod”: and behold! It swallows up straightway all the falsehoods which they fake!”

These two verses, as well as others we have not mentioned here, tell us in no ambiguous term that Allah had on one occasion used Moses’ staff or rod to create twelve springs of water out of a rock, and on another occasion, he turned it into a python that swallowed up those serpents, which the Egyptian Pharaoh’s magicians had created with the help of their own rods. In the words of Allah, what the magicians had done was a trick, but what He had done to their trick was a miracle from Him!

On Jesus Christ the Quran says:

19:29: ”But she pointed to the babe. They said: “How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?””

19:30: “He said: “I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet;”

It is clear from this verse that Jesus Christ was able to talk to people while he was in the cradle. This was clearly a miracle, and Allah performed it to prove to the detractors of Mary, Christ’s mother, that her son was not an illegitimate child and that he was, indeed, a prophet of Allah.

Did Allah perform any miracle in the lifetime of Muhammad? The answer is: Yes, for the Quran says:

54:1: “The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.”

54:2: “But if they see a Sign, they turn away, and say, “This is (but) transient magic.”

Ibn Kathir quotes Anas bin Malik, a companion of Muhammad, as saying:

“I heard the Messenger of Allah say, (You and the Last Hour are as close as these two (fingers).)''' Only Imam Ahmad collected this Hadith. There is proof to support these Hadiths in the Sahih listing, Al-Hashir (literally the Gatherer), among the names of the Messenger of Allah; he is the first to be gathered, and all people will be gathered thereafter (for the Day of Judgement).

Allah's statement, (and the moon has been cleft asunder.) It occurred during the time of Allah's Messenger, according to the authentic Mutawatir Hadiths the scholars agree that the moon was cleft asunder during the lifetime of the Prophet, and it was among the clear miracles that Allah gave him. Hadiths mentioning that the Moon was split.”[3]

So, Allah did, indeed, perform miracles when Moses, Jesus Christ and Muhammad were trying to bring their people to the righteous way of Allah. The splitting of the moon by Allah in the time of Muhammad was a portent that the hour of Judgment was at the doorsteps of the Meccan Pagans to strike them, but they were able to avert it, probably, by asking their idols to stop Allah from carrying out His threat against them.. The idols silently prevailed over Allah, and He was forced to scrap His dangerous plan against the Pagans, with the promise never to think again about destroying the whole Universe in His lifetime for the fault of a small number of the Pagans who occupied a tiny portion of one of its small planets, the earth.

In no other way can anyone explain why Allah postponed His decision to put the Pagans of the Arabian Peninsula on trial for their misdeeds, especially, when He had already taken the first and the crucial step, by splitting the moon, to bring it about. But if some one has a better and believable explanation than the one we have given for the postponement of the Judgment Day, then let him lay it out so that the Muslims as well as the non-Muslims can read and benefit from it.

How are we going to reconcile Allah’s statement to the effect that He stopped sending miracles after the Thamud people killed His miraculous she-camel with His admission, through the Quran, that He did perform a number of miracles in the time of Moses, Jesus Christ and Muhammad? Which of these two statements is correct?

In our judgment, both the statements are correct, for Allah has always been in the habit of saying whatever He thought was necessary to fool the humans. When He wanted to impress His audience with His awesome power, He talked about the miracles, which He supposedly brought about in the distant past. But when the people of Muhammad’s time demanded that He prove that He was capable of causing miracles, He put them off by telling them: I have stopped sending miracles, as people in the past did not believe in them. So, do not ask Me to do what I have already stopped doing a long time ago!

This oscillation on the part of Allah makes Him not only an untrustworthy Being; it also proves that He is a great liar and a manipulator of human minds. He lied shamelessly whenever he expected it to advance His cause. He manipulated the humans with false promises and threats when He thought these would turn them into His slaves.

The Quran is replete with numerous terrorizing threats to the humans, which, He told them, they should expect to face on earth, as well as in the world hereafter, if they did not do what He wanted them to do in their lifetime. It also carries numerous promises of rewards, which they would receive from Him on the Day of Judgment, if they did what He told them, through the Quran, to do, while they were still living on earth.

Despite the fact that Allah has lied all along to the Muslims, they see no wrong in praising Him umpteen times every day through the slogan, ‘Allah-O-Akbar’ ― a slogan they borrowed from the Pagans of the Arabian Peninsula of Muhammad’s time,[4] in order to draw His attention to their sorry state of affairs and also to make them successful in their so-called struggles against those whom they consider to be their political and religious adversaries. This has been going on for over 1400 years without much change in the fate, and the fortunes of the Muslims, yet they continue to sing His praises without ever realizing that what they have been doing is nothing but extreme foolishness, and that all of their devotions to Him have brought them no real good result in the past, nor are they going to bring them any in the days to come.

Given the fact that most Muslims consider their religion to be more precious than their own lives, we are of the view that they will never change their position on the doctrines of Islam and their belief in the invincibility of Allah even if we were to present them with tones of hard and irrefutable arguments and evidences against their beliefs, until some one is able to completely destroy their unflinching faith in the supposedly unmatchable power of Allah. Though we do not know how or who will be able to do this, but we know for sure that this will have to be done in the near future in order to instill sanity in the minds of the Muslims; otherwise, our survival on earth will become almost impossible.

The choice to live or to die lies with us. We have to decide if we will choose death over life for us as well as for our progeny. Any further delay in making this important decision will bring us nothing, but our complete destruction in the hands of the Muslims. Will we like to see this happening to us and to our next generation?

It would be more apt to say that Mohamed was a great liar ,for Allah is a fictional character like Jehovah, Odin, Zeus, Apollo, Vishnu, Siva ,etc. Islam has grown on the ruins of many ancient cultures stealing from them and claiming it in the name of that fictional Allah! Mohamed even borrowed/stole? the pagan arabic moon god Allah and made him the powerful monotheistic creator! Robbing and stealing is both the first and the second nature to Mohamed and his islam. First ,they rob the jewish mythologies claiming it as their own and also the true one! They rob from other cultures in the process of their bloody and vicious conquest philosphies, mathematics, number systems, medicenes, physics, chemistry physiology etc all the endeavours and inventions of other cultures and claim it as islamic! The barbaric bedouins had nothing worthwhile to contribute to the world before they over-ran other civilizations and assimilated their knowledge, now falsely claimed as original islamic one! What can you expect from the camel riding savages of the arabian peninsula which had its economy running on plunder ,loot and slave-trade ?

Islam is not a religion but an evil ideology. It is completely bogus – a sham and a fraud. The assertion that Muslims believe in the same one God as Christians is totally false. There is God - the Omniscient, Omnipotent, Glorious Exalted Creator of the Universe, a God of All Peace, Love, Goodness and Mercy - an All Wise, All Loving God for all mankind. Then there is Allah – the ANTI - GOD worshiped by 1.2 billion Muslims. Allah is the ANTI – GOD of war, murder, rape, slavery, torture, hate, terror, brutality, savagery, maiming, looting and pillaging, extortion, sexual depravity, child molestation, intolerance, bigotry, subrogation of women, wife beating, honor killings. The Allah of the Koran never existed. Muhammad never received any revelations from Allah. MUHAMMAD WAS ALLAH AND ALLAH WAS MUHAMMAD.

Marie wrote: [It is not Allah, but Muhammed that is the great liar.] Since the author of the artilce based his argument on the Quran, I believe he is right in saying that Allah is a liar, instead of saying that it was Muhammad who was the liar. To me it makes a lot of sense, as the Muslims believe that the Quran is the word of Allah. Therefore, if there is any lie in the Quran, then it must have come from the mouth of Allah, and not Muhammad. By the way, Allah and Muhammad was the same peron.

To peace for mankind christianity --- You must be a follower of 'Jehova's Watch Tower'. You read the old testament you will find that this Jehova was by no means merciful but cruel,rabidly jealous(thou shalt not worship any other GOD),destructive and vindictive, which qualifies for the basest human despot and not an exalted God. Ofcourse jehova is as fictional creation of primitive tribes as any other Deity,though he had very base human instincts,nothing exalted nor could he give an elevated philosophy for the betterment of all humans without discrimination or vendetta! Budha was a historical person and he exemplifies the highest morals,compassion,forgivance and non-violence. He was a prosperous king but gave up his kingdom to search for truth, meaning of human existence and finding peaceful means of alleviating human suffering and injustice . Jehova is totally antithetical to the moral and spiritual greatness of Budha. Christianity was greatly influenced by Budhism -- See Holger Kirsten's book "Jesus Lived In India",for example. There are several other books which clearly show that Jesus has adapted many of Budha's sayings in his teachings , and you know Jesus broke away from traditional Judaism of "eye for eye" and "tooth for tooth" philosophy of Judaism - see the book of Deutronomy in the old testament. And Budha lived almost 600 years before Jesus Christ!While Krshna lived 3,000 years before Jesus Christ! We in India don't have to look up to any of the Abrahamic religions ,and certainly not Islam, for spirituality ,piety,morality,peace and well-being! So no thanks to your invitation!

To peace for mankind christianity --- You are decrying idol worship as though it is a great "sin". Tell me who is above idol worship? The muslims ,christians and jews have built mosques,churches or synagogues as " places of worship" on the premises that their god either dwells there or will listen to prayers only from there or is it simply the god's listening post!If these stuctures are also symbolise a kind of idol worship as though god finds a dwelling place in any of them! What about Kaaba? It is also an idol.So the contempt for idol worship is superficial and only posturing "holier than thou" attitude! You believe that there is also a "devil". Who created this "devil"? Did god create him? If he did this god is himself an epitome of evil ,for an absolutely good and super-pious supernatural being cannot create something so evil. If he did not create the "devi" then god is not the sole creator of everything,he has a competitor! Then why not there be many gods ,or perhaps no god at all! The Universe is so immense and infinite and the concept of "god" or "devil" looks so small , miniscule,petty and idiotic! Our own Galaxy is home to 200 Billion Stars , while there are Billions and countless numbers of Galaxies ,many having over 500 Billion stars!The best solution is to do away with "god" or "devil" and lead a sane and sensible life which will wipe out all the rancour and hatred of "my god is the only god and the true god", others are "pagans,kaffirs,etc". Don't you think the world would be better of and peaceful without religion. The more of religion you have the more intolerant you become of other belief/non-belief system thaT YOU GET VIOLENT TO ASSERT YOUR SUPERIORITY! THIS IS TRUE OF ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS,ESPECIALLY "ISLAM", ALL OF WHICH PROSELYTIZE TO CONVERT THE GULLIBLE TO THEIR BELIEF SYSTEM DEBUNKING AND DENIGRATING ALL OTHER BELIEF SYSTEMS OR NON-BELIEFS! I certainly don't subscribe to any insular creed that can survive only by belittling and destroying all other religions or atheism!

Mankind, your being just a believer does not save you from deep shit. You have to be a Muslim unequivocally and perform all the prayers and rituals and pay zakat [you can do without paying taxes). Christians and Jews are believers, but Quran says, they must be fought, if the do not accept ISlam, to reduce them to humiliated dhimmis and jizya must be extracted from them. Of course, that has been the history of Islam until pre-colonial era. If you truly want to be saved from deep shit, stop what is hypocrisy in the Quran, embrace Islam whole-heartedly, and start doing all the rituals steadfastly. Hypocrites are supposed to killed in Islam.

I see more hate than feelings for the fellow humans. Religious, aetheist, agonstics, or whtever be the labels of all who I read the writings from the author or all the comment makers, it appears to me that hating and differntiating reigned predominently over the attitude of integrating and cementing with each other together for the better future of mankind. Mankind came a long way from the distant past bearing all these hatred of dissimilations. Would assimilation ever happen? No one really knows what the people in this forum are talking about! It is all their beliefs bestowed in them by the teachers, parents, friends, circles, neighbors, society, and mostly by everyone's peer pressure. It appears that what everyone thinks, is what everyone knows, in his/er own way, considering it to be the best; and considering every other thing is wrong. like an oak tree in a jungle to tell all other trees that I am only is the tree and all you others are not trees because I have these ..... and you all don't have anything of these. In reality, everyone is liar; because there is no way anyone can absolutely make sure what is right or what is wrong; other than depending on a belief system. In reality, all belief systems are blindness. Putting both hands on the chest, closing eyes, and thinking deeply, and asking the own mind, whta is true?; no one will find any real answers, except finding the pre-grafted brain cell memories of what has been taught to the person in the past. So, what should we do? I think, we should all forget about all of our past. Think very deeply, evaluate the self, judge and try to find how we can do betterment of the humanity in the future. We need to focus on the welfare of all humans; not only for own group, own sect, own nationality, own religion, own tribe; or any deities or supernaturals. We have a lot to do around us before thinking of other supernaturals at too far distant locations. Doing welfare to self and all humans will emancipate every individual a lot more than trying to make a distant deity happy; leaving all humans. Harboring to facinated supenatural distant beings is probably not an answer to the very difficult question of what we should do?

I have done my homework and believe me Asghar is correct in what he says. Mohammed took advantage of an idol worshipping society and out of the 100 plus idols they worshipped, he took the moon god and changed its name to Allah. There are many references in the Quran to Allah being named as a deceiver, liar and other similar names and in fact Mohammed was afraid of him as was his second in command. This is not to say there are not law abiding Muslims, but they don't go against their ideology which is what Mohammed had and it stuck,
