The word “punishment” is repeated 117 times in the Quran. But the word “forgiveness” is repeated 234 times, exactly two times more than the other.

suhaib93: “Do not be saddened by what they say.” [Quran, 36:76]

“Like the bible, and to apparently an even greater extent, the Qur'an of today cannot be claimed to be a true version of the oldest Qur'an in the world discovered in 1972, written in 705-715 AD, and available to researchers in 1979. There are TREMENDOUS differences, an excellent example of one being an original text of ‘72 grapes’ being changed to the infamous ‘72 virgins’ awaiting the faithful in the afterlife hundreds of years later.

The standard histories of Muhammad and the early development of Islam are based on Islamic literature that dates to the ninth and tenth centuries -- some two centuries or more after the death of Muhammad in 632. Islamic literary sources do not exist for the seventh and eighth centuries, when, according to tradition, Muhammad and his immediate followers lived. All that is preserved from this time period are a few commemorative building inscriptions and assorted coins.

As the researchers meticulously show, the name ‘Muhammad’ first appears on coins in Syria bearing Christian iconography. In this context the name is used as an honorific meaning ‘revered’ or ‘praiseworthy’ and can only refer to Jesus Christ, as Christianity was the predominant religion of the area at this time. This same reference exists in the building inscription of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, built by the caliph `Abd al-Malik.

The implication of these and other findings here presented is that the early Arab rulers adhered to a sect of Christianity. Indeed, evidence from the Koran, finalized at a much later time, shows that its central theological tenets were influenced by a pre-Nicean, Syrian Christianity. Linguistic analysis also indicates that Aramaic, the common language throughout the Near East for many centuries and the language of Syrian Christianity, significantly influenced the Arabic script and vocabulary used in the Koran. Finally, it was not until the end of the eighth and ninth centuries that Islam formed as a separate religion, and the Quran underwent a period of historical development of at least 200 years.

In other words, even should one believe the Qur'an as written by Mohammad is a sacred text, the Qur'an of today is a substantially different book, unqualified to be called the true Qur'an or even a reasonable facsimile. Thus contemporary Islam is complete bullshit based on the false and inaccurate Qur'an in current use by Muslims. Muslims leaders, of course, reject the physical and irrefutable evidence and facts presented.”

DISCOVERY: Oldest Quran Found Has Little Similarity To Modern Version

Reposted byschaaf schaaf

“Jesus in Islam seems to be a character that doesn't fit in. He has a virgin birth yet God is not his father. The idea of the virgin birth was copied from Christianity whereas it wasn't in the oldest gospel.”

“The idea of Jesus having a virgin birth – This story does not exist in the oldest Gospel Mark, but actually appears later on in the gospel of Matthew and Luke. When we look at the 4 gospels in order from oldest (Mark) to newest, we see how Jesus goes from barely a hint of being God in Mark to ‘In the beginning Jesus was God’ in John which is the last gospel. If it was clear that Jesus had a virgin birth, why didnt Mark mention it? Why was it not mentioned until Matthew, 70 years after the supposed event.

This idea of virgin birth has been around in antiquity, Horus in ancient Egypt being born to the virgin Isis and many other stories. This is how religions come about, they copy each other.

Muhammad took an idea that was invented to promote Jesus being God (having a virgin birth) and included it in the Quran.”

Jesus - The Copy-Pasted Prophet from Christianity

“Anybody who believes in the Qur'an has to extract from this story [the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah] that it is unethical and immoral to engage in any type of sexual engagement with the same gender. This is something that there has been no scholarly difference of opinion. The actual act of sodomy, the act of intercourse between two men is something that without a shadow of a doubt is unanimously agreed upon as being forbidden in Islam.”

Lut known as Lot in the Old Testament, is a prophet of God in the Quran. He also appears in the Bible, but the biblical stories of Lot are not entirely accepted within Islam. He was bestowed as a prophet to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. His story is used to demonstrate Islam's disapproval of rape and homosexuality. He was commanded by God to go to the land of Sodom and Gomorrah to preach to his people on monotheism and to stop them from their lustful and violent acts. According to both the Quran and the Hebrew Bible, Lot's messages were ignored by the inhabitants and Sodom and Gomorrah were subsequently destroyed.

Iran’s Supreme Leader: by becoming a lover of Quran, you can get the right answer to questions on your life. His answer: death to homosexuals; death to Salman Rushdie (Khamenei clearly says he upholds Khomeini’s calling for Salman Rushdie assassination); separation of state and religion is an ideology of the corrupted West.

God would laugh at both of you — if he really existed.

  • Anonymous (via bintalghazi):

    I laugh at the thought of the fictional allah. I feel sorry for the mentally deranged prophet. I clean the dust from my feet with pages of the muslim holy book. It's a hobby.

  • aburayyaan:

    I laugh at the thought of how misguided you are. Laugh all you want now, it doesn’t effect us Muslims we got more important issues to deal with.

    Remember though, you will stand naked on a very long hot Day, so much so that your sweat will come down to your knees, you will stand in front of the whole of mankind being judged about every little thing you use to do, and we will all see it. All your private sins will be exposed to us. The Hell Fire will be made to appear in front of you, its so deep that if your threw a stone it will take 70 years to touch the ground.

    So yeah keep laughing. We too are laughing.

hopeful-melancholy: These children are memorizing the Qur’an. They write a verse on one side of a board and turn it away from themselves, toward their teachers, as they recite the verse aloud. When the Sheikh is satisfied that the children have memorized the verse, he will allow them to erase it, and the process will begin again with the next verse. Dadaab, Kenya, November 2005.

The bearers of the Qur’an

Imam al-Jazari’s praise for the Qur’an bearer (from the Muqaddimah of ‘Tayyibat al-Nashr’)

May 02 2013


“Surprisingly, Islam is now condemned for not giving women their rights, but in the past it was blamed for a totally opposite reason.”

... to be fair to the religion, Islam has granted women rights to inheritance, ownership, equal pay, engagement in public life and to initiating divorce since the seventh century. The Qur’ān declares: “Men shall have the benefit of what they earn and women shall have the benefit of what they earn” (4:32) and “From what is left by parents and by those nearest related there is a share for men and a share for women” (4:7). Furthermore, the very reason of women’s economic empowerment in Islam caused the Christian medieval world to wonder: “What kind of religion would allow women to inherit?”
