The Quran: Fantasy and Reality

QuranAlmost everything get found in the Quran: compassion and hate; Peace and violence; Tolerance and intolerance; Forgiveness and revenge; Coexistence and expulsion of other believers. By using the Quran, any assertion can either be defamed or disproved. This is also known from the Bible: as better one is familiar with one or another holy script, as better he would be able to underline his arguments with the appropriate quotation.

It begins with a historical classification and explains the emergence and spread of the Holy Scriptures of the Muslims. The Quran, composed of 114 chapters (sections with a different number of verses), is divided into a Mecca and a Medina period. That first one produced the peaceful verses and the one have produced the violent passages, is not quite true, the sections are only a rough classification. Muslims believe that the Quran was dictated to the Prophet Muhammad by an angel (Gabriel) as the direct word of Allah. Unlike the Bible his chapters follow no thematic or narrative structures.

The Quran is a work that is strongly embedded in its period of development: the respective political and social circumstances influenced the "recitations" of Muhammad (he did not write them down, but dictated them). However, as more time passed from the time of the Prophet as more untouchable became the Quran.

Statements and regulations were no longer subject to necessary revelations. In addition to this, different from the Jewish and Christian sacred texts, which are regarded as revelations but which were written down by men (...), believing Muslims are taking the Quran as an "eternal book", available in the same language and with the same content since creation, and has been kept with God.

The Quran arose in several phases, which brought a more or less quarrelsome or even xenophobic orientation in the Holy Scriptures according to the situation in which Muhammad and his community found themselves. Many, detractors and proponents of Islam, nevertheless "understand these divergent passages not as a mirror of their period of origin."

Most of the Quran's rules are concrete responses to certain events of the past. One can say that Allah did not create Mohammed according to his model, but Muhammad had put those sentences that were just fitting for him in his particular life situation into the mouth of God.

The prophet had changed his attitude towards the "unbelievers" several times. As more women Mohammed had, as more the principle of equal rights disappeared which has been available in former chapters. It also looks that Mohammad has been shaming himself about his much younger wives as he has been coming in the age of 60, because at this time he started with the topic of veiling for women.

Only when we understand the Quran as a human work with everything that belongs to humans than then the negative aspects of violence can get neutralized and the positive aspects of the spiritual passages that the faithful believers need to feel comfort and love can get emphasized.

 

Intelligence is not available for purchasing - even not for a Sheikh

Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-LuhaidanThe Saudi Arabian Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Luhaidan needs to be happy that stupidity does not hurt, because otherwise he would yell day and night.

The useless Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Luhaidan, a Private Attorney General and the Psychological Advisor of the Psychological Association in the Gulf states, stated:

Driving could have a reverse physiological impact. Physiological science and functional medicine studied this side [and found] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis. This is why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.

Such a statement shows the missing and miserable education from Sheikh Saleh bin Saad al-Luhaidan. I wonder myself how he is able to survive with such a mental illness, which seems to be a result of inbreeding and child marriage. Buy the way in the civilized world gets a sexual interaction between an adult and a minor called and prosecuted as a rape. Only in stone age cultures is such an interaction between adults and minors allowed.

Arabic newspaper Sabq reported in this case:

Al-Luhaidan stated that in the days of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), muslim women who were his companions used to ride horses and camels as means of transportation but never rode alone and were always accompanied by a ‘mahram’.

Al-Luhaidan further explained that there are exceptional cases that allow women to drive in Saudi Arabia such as when a husband is driving accompanied by his wife and daughter and an accident occurred. It is then allowed for women to drive due to the urgency of the situation.

Al-Luhaidan added that driving could have a reverse physiological impact on women and could affect her ovaries and push the pelvis higher as a result of which their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.

He further stated that 33% female drivers caused car accidents in Arab countries as opposed to 9% male.

If I read such statements then I think that I need to include into my next prayer: "Oh God, please throw brain from heaven. Here are some people who need it very urgently".

The kingdom "reduces women to the status of children, unable to make important decisions about their lives," Human Rights Watch said in a statement and Amnesty International said that the driving ban is "discriminatory and demeaning to women and must be overturned immediately".

Here is a video about this sensational proof of missing intelligence:

Transcription of the video:

a saudi arabian sheik as noted a study from a religious organization indicating
that women in Saudi Arabia shouldn't drive because they don't damage their
pelvis and their
ovaries these are simple have to bear children I mean that's the only thing
they're good for
so we can't have them driving in cars that's terrible
up now of course this study has absolutely no
scientific research or scientific merit but the ship did say
that yet of course physiological signs and functional medicine study decided
found that
automatically affects over reason rules up the pelvis
I roles up but I love for me to get pregnant this is crazy
this is why we find for women who continuously drive cars their children
are born with clinical disorders a varying degrees
well look this he's very very scientific its varying degrees of disorder
okay so let me take your chances you roll your ovaries and pelvis
you never know what comes up when america little difference over there K
he said the Rebbe is the only country in the world that doesn't allow a manager I
know it's incredible I mean you have so many other countries that
severely violate human rights and especially women's rights
yet Saudi Arabia still the only country that doesn't allow women to drive any
women have been protests in Saudi Arabia for the last four years
for the ability to drive and some have been arrested someone has dealt with
lashings as a result and I hope we continue to fight back
but I just find it laughable that anyone in Saudi Arabia would take this study
from a religious organization seriously no one's buying it oh why would even try
so several things on that first will the person you're alluding to shine my
just the Neo's 34 who sent us that 10 lashes they whipped her
for the grave offense of driving a a car
but that was all the way back in 2011 okay so just two years ago that happen
and then the Saturday be amazingly
only finish the 130 other 134 countries
on gender parity cheeses who's worse on gender parity the Saudi Arabia
so that's amazing but so in order to avail this
if you will a.m. the the cloak of sigh so they could say like alter scientific
study
over a sprawling over is gone damage trade
they brought in former professor at King Fahd University so you know is that
biased
come also be he didn't think I'm opposed to be the guy was valued at over so
there's that they're fucked
didn't well in order to get pregnant I guess they're packed
pedicure a it's a 0 this is the same
alleged for professor who earlier had testified that
well if you allow women to drive obviously we will have increases in
prostitution
pornography and homosexuality and that's usually how it works he's got got a
point there
whenever I see a woman driving I lean over to bob and I see guys wanna make
out
you how insane is that
if you let women drive well obviously
dudes will turn your no but thank you how easily emasculated and how terribly
weak
the men in saudi arabia I mean I'm sure there are men in saudi arabia that are
in favor of allowing women to drive
I'm talking about the religious leaders that are so scared the think that if
they give their women a little bit of freedom
there immediately gonna do crazy shit because they're so unhappy with the
relationships they have with these pathetic losers
if they think they'll turn to prostitution doctor for Tyree because I
was they would want guys who wanna porn
and then a it's a will lead to more divorces another thing by
alleged professor sue be %uh okay and
and then ultimately they'll turn to other women because I like well
obviously since we're pathetic
and we can never keep a woman all this week keeper literally wrapped up
and literally in the home so she can even runaways Cape to the mall
okay but will obviously she leave us cuz we suck
an that's what the leadership saturday via saying love course among the young
Saudi Arabia
as in a lotta countries they rebel against the speakers so
they find it out as outrageous as we do an egg I have to live in it let not just
the women but the men as well
I'll but this is it that to catch it in science
is whole larisa layers in just one final thing that they like to fear monger
about within 10 years the ban being lifted
the report's authors others claimed there would be
quote no virgins in the Islamic Kingdom
I you thought I it's
in space I'm not sure they understand what the word virgin its
you see when I what happens as soon as the baby is born
feel like ten years ago we let somebody drive
I expect
hug every no more purchase its its it's absurd on two fronts yes because of what
you're saying
and also because I mean it lot just the idea that
being able to drive is gonna convince women to go out there and just have sex
with everyone
and that's the only word that they have if they're not virgins well then they're
worthless
right that's the only thing that you should emphasize about that and one
final point
apparently they believe that they're wrong that
if you if they do not restrict your freedom
that you will choose an alternative path if they believe that if you're
completely free
then you would follow the path that they have laid out the mission be worried
about cars or kinda clothing et cetera
women would naturally be just as religious as Saudi Arabia wants them to
be there were following the path of God et cetera right
apparently you think well they're not going to do that cuz obviously were
wrong
and so we can allow them to have any freedom
because if we do then they'll realize were jackasses and then what was in
there was any more
can you imagine not being able to go anywhere unless you have some sort of
like chauffeur
or some some guardian who like takes you to where you need to go
and a look super final point that's exactly
the subjugation that they desire that everything that a woman does she must
check with either husband her father
her brother like so you must get permission for
every single thing you do and
to these prophetic guys editors
interim leadership is an area where they think well
I mean that's only going get them to ever love us right
I like if we give them a choice they obviously wouldn't choose us
so weak

Here another video about the same case:

 

Maqsood Ahmad (L.I.O.N) - a Pakistani Muslim Coward

Maqsood Ahmad (L.I.O.N)Maqsood Ahmad declares himself in his LinkedIn profile as Director Lasani Quran (lasaniquran.com), a website which defines their vision as "Our vision for Lasani Quran is to spread Islamic knowledge throughout the world ...". If such a person like Maqsood Ahmad uses a constructed (photoshopped) more than 12 years old picture for a LinkedIn posting then he has some special intentions with his posting. Every photo is nothing else than a snapshot from a moment and says nothing about it how it has been coming to the situation. If such a picture gets constructed and used for a special purpose then this purpose is very questionable. In such a case you can only speculate about the true background. If such a speculation hits the truth then the author feels himself dismantled and deletes his posting. Maqsood Ahmad has done the same like little children are doing if they are caught in lies, he deleted his posting at LinkedIn.

What can you expect from a Islamic Quran Education institute where the Director from the institute is already a liar?

Maqsood Ahmad posted at LinkedIn with the text "There is no reason whatsoever you can point a gun to kids. Brave Palestinian kids. Salute to the cause" the following constructed picture, which should give you an impression of inhumanity:

The problem of the above picture is:

  • Everything except the person in front is drawn sharp and clear - from the rocks in front until the rocks in the background.
  • By taking a look at right side from the trousers of the person in front you'll see that there are disturbances in the image, which cannot get explained with wrinkles of the clothing. Such disturbances happens when you try to cut something from a picture where a strong contrast is not available. Here has made the guy, who has constructed the picture, some mistakes.
  • Not one photographer will make a picture within this angle if there is war and a gun is pointing to him. He will bring himself first in a secure area and make a picture afterwards.
  • Not one soldier will go down on his knees if he is alone in an insecure area. Soldiers are going in groups and protecting themselves from all directions. The person with the stone can be a red herring too and the soldier can get attacked from another side while he is concentrating himself to the one attacker.

Why is posting Maqsood Ahmad such a fake picture?

One possible answer can get found in the sentence: "Brave Palestinian kids". Instead of calling such kids to be stupid and thinking about the responsibility of the parents he is calling such a child "brave". With other words he is confirming that the Islam is a religion of war and conquest and not a religion like others which are preaching peace and love. Already this answer will make Maqsood Ahmad to one of the hate preachers.

If we are combining the posting from Maqsood Ahmad with the facts that the Muslims are using children as suicide bombers and as terrorists then the content from the posting shall help children in reaching their deadly destination. An actual report from the British Daily Mirror, Disturbing video shows children in Gaza acting out mock terrorist attacks at pre-school graduation, shows what the Muslims are understanding in humanity and the value of a human life for them. Such stupid cowards like Maqsood Ahmad like to use for their war innocent children and women. Such people like Maqsood Ahmad are a dishonor for the human race and showing us what the Islam really stands for. If someone expect that others are handling himself in humanity then he need to show first that he is a human!

Here you see a screenshot from the posting which the coward Maqsood Ahmad has already removed:

One of his friends, who even don't like to provide a manhunt picture by himself, commented:

Abdallah عبدالله عبدالرحمن
I remember this image. this girl got shot

How stupid the hat preacher Maqsood Ahmad is gets shown that he has invited his friends, who shall support him in his fake campaign, in the first two comments. One from them is the Abdallah above. The oldest version from the picture, found in Google picture search, has the date April 11, 2004. At this time in Abdallah's profile is written: "Education: Govt. College of Technology, D.A.E, Civil Engineering, 2002 – 2005". Maybe even his education is a lie like his comment above.

Maqsood Ahamd dismantles the Quran on his website to a script, which needs to get explained by qualified teachers:

This Website helps each student to learn Quran online by qualified teachers.

The sentence above is contradicting the version that the Quran is a holy script. Which God will use words by speaking to his followers which they don't understand and need to get interpreted from human teachers?

The Muslims are thinking that they can dominate the world and that is wrong. They are crying about humanity and are hiding themselves behind children and women. What can they really expect in such case? As long they are only killing each other would it not be a real problem, but as soon as they are trying to export their understanding from humanity (terror attacks) they need not wonder themselves that they'll get an answer from the other countries.

Is the Islam a religion or a worse dictatorship?

Islamic WomenThousands civil rights activists in Saudi Arabia have demanded in a petition of King Salman abolish the guardianship system in the ultra-conservative kingdom which allows men extensive rights over women.

They demanded in the petition, the king should establish "an age of majority of women", "from which they are grown up and take responsibility for their actions," the retired academic Asisa al-Yusuf said on Tuesday. Nearly 15,000 people have signed the petition calling for the "fully as citizens" to deal with tens of millions of women in the country. Their attempt to present the petition to the Royal Cabinet failed. Jusuf said. Instead, they now will send them by E-Mail.

Women are dependent on male relatives

In Saudi Arabia, a particularly strict interpretation of Islamic law, the Sharia law. For women, this means that they need even for everyday trifles the consent of their legal male guardian, may not work or travel. Until they are married, the father takes over this function, then the husband. Widows depend on the decisions of her son or another close male relative.

Already this rules are showing that the Quran did not get written on the command from any God. God, however you'll call him, will never differ between the genders. These stupid fundamentalists are only hiding themselves behind a religion for dominating the women. This fact shows that the women had in the old time more intelligence then the men and the men have been afraid losing all their possibilities in dominating the females. For this reason they have invented the religion called Islam where they like to suppress all others. It shows how stupid and stubborn these Islamic fundamentalists are and nobody will miss them and their stone age culture if they will disappear from the world. In the rest of the world are such people called "eternally yesterday's people" or "stupid born and nothing learned". As the Islam is nothing else than only a form of totalitarian regime, worse than a dictatorship, should get the recognition as a religion removed from the Islam.

A in the summer from the human rights organisation published a report on the current situation of women in Saudi Arabia. Human Rights Watch (HRW) stir and prompted a group of activists to launch the petition of "#IAmMyOwnGuardian" (I am my own guardian).

According to Jusuf, the petition was signed by some religious leaders believe that the strict laws in Islam are anchored, but assumed in the Royal House. There again, there are some open entirely for reforms family members, which would however be outvoted by conservative leaders, citing the Koran.

Small steps towards more rights

"#IAmMyOwnGuardian" is not the first spectacular initiative, in addition to international protests resistance against this system, around 2013, when petitioned in vain for the right of women to drive a car, was formed in Saudi Arabia in the past again and again. In March 2014, a similar initiative had pointed to the unequal treatment and called, inter alia, to proceed against the marriage of minors, as well as sexual harassment.

Even though it is still a very long way to equal rights for Saudi women, but small improvements are characterized. Since the end of last year the Royals granted also women who were completely excluded from political processes, the right to vote. But in a very restricted democracy: the men can cast their vote only since 2005, and only in municipal elections. The influence of the elected bodies is low, the powers extend beyond little road construction, public facilities, and garbage disposal. Political parties and even demonstrations are banned in Saudi Arabia.

Rights of religious police restricted

During spring time Saudia Arabia earned a rare praise of the human rights organization HRW for reducing the rights of the religious police. The dreaded moral guardians who are monitoring compliance with the strict rules in the general public, though are still active, but may since this year they are not allowed to arrest somebody, they need to report violations to the police.

HRW called it a "positive step for the people of Saudi Arabia", but called on the Saudi Government to curtail the rights of authority for the promotion of virtue and prevention of Vice.

 

Is the Islam a religion of peace or war?

Like all other "holy books" the Quran got written by humans after the death of Mohammed. Only the mighty ones and the savants have been able to write in ancient time. So you find the influence and interpretation of such people inside the "holy scripts". Think about the value from quotes transported by mouth. Everybody forwards only these content what he has understood by himself. Errors and misunderstandings are inevitable in such a procedure. You only need to remember the kids game called silent message. Very seldom matches the result to that what has been provided to the start of the chain. Such a suspicious source got used for writing "holy scripts". Until here is no difference between the Islam and other religions.

The result has been that all these codices had differences in the same way like the content got transported from mouth to mouth by the people. The third Caliph, Uthman ibn Affan (644-656), burned all previous existing scripts and established a standard version known as Uthman's codex, which is generally considered the archetype of the Quran known today.

In the year 1389 the Muslim savant Ibn Khaldun wrote (Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs):

In Islam, the person in charge of religious affairs is concerned with "power politics," because Islam is "under obligation to gain power over other nations"

(Muqaddimah, trans. Rosenthal, p. 183).

and

In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.

No other religions had no such universal mission and the holy war was not a religious duty to them apart from self-defense. This fact shows clearly that the Islam is nothing else than a dangerous teaching made from humans and not from any God. If a belief needs to get distributed by force, then this belief has no value because thoughts and opinions of people cannot get controlled. A God, however his name is or however you are calling him, is omniscient and omnipotent. For what does he need other humans to bring his rules and teachings by force to other people?

The mighty ones in ancient time have known this fact too and have decided by themselves to use troops instead of sending missionaries to other regions of the world. That shows that these mighty ones used their influence to get their wishes written into the "holy book" and not the truth. They are only using the Quran for hiding their own power hungry wishes from others. The Quran is nothing else than a excuse or a pretext for filling the pockets of the mighty ones without making themselves responsible for anything.

Another excuse get heard from time to time, that the Christians have loaded a lot blame with the Crusades. What is not known to many people but is the fact that it came only to the Crusades after the Muslims have almost 500 years (exactly 464 years long, from 635 until 1099 AD, (1099 = start of the first crusade)) invaded the Christian countries, they have robbed, terrorized and plundered. There were very many Christians murdered, raping their wives or sold together with their children into slavery. Christian churches were destroyed, burned down the houses of Christians and Christians had only to chose to convert to the Islam or to get killed by the Muslims.

For almost over 500 years, Muslim troops attacked formerly Christian countries such as Palestine, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Spain, Portugal, parts of France, Sicily, Greece, Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Romania, Armenia, Turkey (Byzantium), Cyprus, India, China and Pakistan. Not less cruel behave Muslims today towards the Muslims, who turn away from Islam: "whoever changes his religion ever, kill him."

For almost 500 years the Muslims in Christian countries left a wide trail of blood before Pope Urbans II 1095 called in Clermont to the liberation of Jerusalem and of the "holy land" (Israel) from the hands of the Muslims. During the reign of the Fatimid Caliph al-Hakim occurred 1009 the destruction of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, one of the largest sanctuaries of Christianity, which should be located at the historical place of the crucifixion and the tomb of Jesus.

When we talk about the Crusades, then you should familiarize yourself very well with the causes of the Crusades and study the historical process very carefully. Therefore historical events should be displayed now more detail. Of course, there were cruel excesses of all kinds by the Crusaders. It should be at all not secretive, glossed over or endorsed. They happened only after the Muslims had almost 500 years terrorized and murdered Christians. The Christian Crusades were essentially nothing more than the Christians attempting finally to put an end to the cruel terrorist of Muslims. This was achieved but only temporarily, namely at the time of the Crusades. After the Crusades, the Muslims blithely continue the conquest of Christian, Buddhist and Hindu countries with the same cruelty until today.

For a better understanding of historical events, I would like to insert two pictures representing very vividly the Muslim conquests:

  • Expansion under Muhammad, 612-632
  • Spread under the first three Caliphs, 632-655
  • Spread under the Umayyad Caliphate 661-750

Islamic Expansion

The above map shows the Islamic expansion during the time of Muhammad from 622 until 632 (dark). After the death of Muhammad ruled the 4 rightly guided Caliphs Abu Bakr, 632-634-Umar ibn al-Khattab, 634-644 - Uthman ibn Affan, 644-656 - Ali ibn Abi Talib, 656-661. The red area shows the expansion in this period. After the 4 rightly guided Caliphs, the Umayyads came to power. Their reign stretched from 661 to 750. The ocher-colored area shows the areas that they captured.

The next picture shows an overview of the Islamic expansion up to 1500:

Islamic Expansion

Here is a list that shows that the Quran has been nothing else that "holy scripts" where the warlords could hide themselves behind it:

  • 632 A.D. (467 years before the start of the Christian Crusades): Death of Muhammad
    At this time, Islam was already spreaded by raids across large parts of the Arabian peninsula. These aggressions continued after the death of the "prophet" and turned into a scene of constant wars throughout the Mediterranean for centuries. The subjugated were not allowed to carry any weapons, they were incapable of military service, therefore no full men. Christians and Jews had to wear clothing or special colors (this discrimination led to the Jewish star), to be marked as "Dhimmi" (non-believer or Protectee).

    They needed to accept to get hits from Muslims and have not been allowed to defend themselves. If a "dhimmi" struck back, then his hand got hacked off or he got executed. Any testimony of a "dhimmi" could not really got used against Muslims. Muslims needed to bear only half of their penalty for offenses of a "dhimmi" and they could never got executed. Conversely, the most cruel forms of executions have been mainly reserved the "dhimmi".

    They were not allowed to ride horses, but only on donkeys, so they were constantly reminded of their humiliation. (In the 19th century were Christian Copts in Egypt, after all, using horses, but only if they have been sitting backwards, facing backwards.) They paid a tribute (jizya), which needed to get paid in person, where they received a blow on the head.

  • 635 A.D. (464 years before the start of the Crusades): a Muslim army conquered the Christian Byzantine Empire, Damascus, the capital of the former Christian Syria.

  • 637/638 A.D. (462 years before the Crusades): a Muslim army conquered the Christian Byzantine Empire, Jerusalem. Capture of Jerusalem by Caliph Omar

  • 642 A.D. (457 years before the Crusades): a Muslim army conquered the Christian Byzantine Empire, Alexandria, the capital of Christian Egypt.

  • 645 A.D. (454 years before the Crusades): a Muslim army conquered the Christian Barka in North Africa (Libya).

  • 674 A.D. (425 years before the Crusades): A Muslim attack on Constantinople (capital of the Christian Byzantine Empire and seat of the Christian emperor) got fended off

  • 708 A.D. (391 years before the Crusades): The Muslim expansion to capture the Christian North Africa reached the Atlantic Coast (Spain).

  • 710 A.D. (389 years before the Crusades): With the conquest of the last Christian town in North Africa is the entire former Christian North Africa is islamized. Nearly all of the 400 Christian dioceses in North Africa go down. North Africa was once a flourishing Christian world, has produced significant theologians of Christian antiquity: Tertullian, Cyprian, Athanasius, Augustine.

  • 711 A.D. (388 years before the Crusades): Desecration of the Christian basilica located on the Temple Mount Santa Maria to the al-Aqsa Mosque by Abd el-Wahd. Today, the mosque there is considered third important on in Islam because Muhammad there allegedly prayed there on his "Heavenly journey", but he was at this time already buried 79 years in Medina. This magnificent Church was built once by the Christian Emperor Justinian (527-565). For Islam, converting a famous Church means also always win over Christianity. Legend formations are more important than historical facts in Islam.

    Qur'an (17: 1) gets used as an indication that the "prophet" made in the year 621 a "Night journey to Jerusalem" and was taken from there until the seventh heaven (maybe it has been a drug trip). In fact, there is no historical evidence that Muhammad ever has been in Jerusalem. Since the Prophet of Islam already died in 632, the Koran cannot mean the Church St. Maria, because the church got converted in the year 711, so 79 years after his death, to the el-Aqsa Mosque. The dome of the rock is also not in question, because this building was not even built at this time.

    One may assume that the rise into seventh heaven is rather a dream or imagination from Muhammad and cannot be regarded as a real event. The problem is that the Muslims consider this alleged journey to heaven as a real event. But something like this you can find in all religions.
