The Only Way to Avoid Error is to Detect it – The Only Way to Detect it is to be Free to Question !
Muslims are Not Allowed to Question The Quran
#1. According to Islam Allah knows everything. He knows what has happened in the past, he knows what is happening now and he knows what will happen in the future. Allah knows that you scratched your head 3 times this morning before you put your socks on. Allah knows every single thing about everything.
So, if this is true, then why when prophet Muhammad was sitting in the cave meditating and angel Gabriel appeared to him and said “READ” (Sahih al-Bukhari 3) not just once but “3” times and the third time “READ IN THE NAME OF YOUR LORD” why ?, why did angel Gabriel say “READ” I assume angel Gabriel was sent by God and that God told him what to say to Muhammad ???? (for those of you who do not know, Muhammad was illiterate).
#2. Muslims believe that prophet Abraham built the Kaaba, prophet Abraham lived in Hebron which is approx 19 miles from Jerusalem which is 800miles from Mecca. Now assuming that the mode of transport in those days was a Camel, how long would it have taken prophet Abraham to travel 800 miles by camel ?
Not only that but according to historical records of trading routes around that area Mecca did not exist before the 1st century. (Timeline of Mecca) and (Early history of Mecca). Prophet Abraham lived in approx 2,000 BC which is 2,000 years before the first record of a place called Mecca ?
#3. Pork/pigs, according to the Quran, swine flesh is forbidden, (Qur’an 2:173). Muslims will avoid anything to do with pigs. For me this begs the question: if pigs are so disgustingly abhorrent and must be avoided, then why did Allah create them in the first place ?
#4. Hajj, during the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca Muslims circle the Kaaba 7 times, (Tawaf). They also run between the mountains of Safa and Marwah.
Ask any Muslim why they circumambulate the Ka’bah 7 times. You will find most do not know why. If they do they will say, because prophet Muhammad did so. Then ask them why did prophet Muhammad do so? They will not know. But the answer is because he saw the Pagans doing so. All the rituals performed during Hajj are what the Pagans used to do in Mecca when prophet Muhammad lived there. HE COPIED THE PAGANS.
Tawaf -> (Sahih Muslim 3028) and (Sahih al-Bukhari 4363) – Safa and Marwa -> ( Sahih al-Bukhari 3847)
#5. The fast of Ashura, (the 10th day in the month of Muharram).
One day Muhammad came across some Jews that were fasting and he asked them why ?
They said, we are fasting to commemorate the day when Moses and his followers were saved from Pharaoh by God. Prophet Muhammad said “we have more right over Moses than you” so from that day on Muslims fasted the 10th of Muharram because prophet Muhammad said they should.
HE COPIED THE JEWS. (Sahih Muslim 1130c)
#6. The name Abdullah (servant of Allah) is the second most popular Muslim name after Muhammad. Prophet Muhammad founded the religion of Islam. Prophet Muhammad’s Fathers name was Abdullah ??
#7. If the Quran is Guidance for all Mankind why can it only be understood in the Arabic language, a language that most people do not speak ?
#8. According to the Quran God sent prophets to all Nations, (Qur’an 16:36). If that is true, who was the prophet sent to America? who was the prophet sent to Australia? who was the prophet sent to Canada? who was the prophet sent to Denmark? who was the prophet sent to England? etc, etc, etc. The only prophets we know of are those sent to The Middle East desert dwellers. What about all the other Nations across the planet?
#9. Prophet Jesus (Isa) according to Islam was a Muslim. The Jesus of the Bible was crucified and died on the cross. Now we know that prophet Jesus had many followers. So that being the case, then all the followers of
Jesus (Isa) were Muslims. But according to the Quran “Jesus was not crucified” (Qur’an 4:157). God (Allah) just made it appear to be so.
For me this begs the question, why ? Why would God, trick and deceive the Muslim followers of Jesus into thinking he was crucified ? Very strange.. Not only that, but does this mean that the Muslim followers of Jesus that believe he was crucified are going to go to Hell because God tricked them ? weird..it does not make sense.
#10. We are told by Islamic scholars that the Quran is meant for all mankind and for all time. Yet we find that most things in the Quran, Hadith and Tafseer are what would have only been relevant to desert dwelling people of the 7th century.
The description of paradise (Jennah) for instance is described as filled with material delights, such as beautiful maidens, precious stones, delicious foods, and constantly flowing water from gardens under which rivers flow with places of shade, especially appealing to the desert dwelling Arabs, who spend most of their life in arid lands. Not relevant in the 21st century or living in cold and wet places.
