The Scholars of Islam claim Quran to be a word of
GOD (Allah) and they bring forward some verses
from Quran to support their claims. In this Short
article, we will analyze one such claim and will
prove that Quran is not a word of God in just three
simple steps. The English translation of Quranic
verses has been taken from reliable and authentic
Islamic sources like http://www.quran.com and anybody
who feels that the English translation of Quran is
not correct should actually question these Islamic
sources from where the translation has been
taken.
STEP NO 1:
It is written in Quran Chapter 4 – Surat An-
Nisā’ (The Women) verse 82 which says –
Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an? If it had
been from [any] other than Allah , they would have
found within it much contradiction.
So here in this verse there is a very strong claim
given by the Author of Quran that if it had been
from anybody other than God (Allah) then we
would have found many contradictory statements
in Quran and no Muslim can refuse this statement
in fact they very proudly mention this verse of
Quran and challenge Non Muslims to prove one
single contradiction in Quran. So if we find a single
contradiction in Quran then it cannot be called as a
word of God.
STEP NO 2:
Now let us have at look on some other verse of
Quran-
Chapter 6(Surah Al-anam) verse 114 says-
[Say], “Then is it other than Allah I should seek as
judge while it is He who has revealed to you the
Book explained in detail?” And those to whom We
[previously] gave the Scripture know that it is sent
down from your Lord in truth, so never be among
the doubters.
Chapter 68 (Surah Al Qalam) verse 37 –
Or do you have a scripture (other than Quran) in
which you learn
Chapter 77 ( Surah Al-Mursalat ) verse 50 –
Then in what statement after the Qur’an will they
believe?
So as per these verse Quran is a book which has
explained things in detail so neither you should
doubt the authenticity of Quran and nor you
should follow any other book other than Quran
because according to these verses Quran is a
complete book and the best discourse and no
Muslim can disagree with this statement.
STEP NO 3 –
Now in the first two steps we have studied that
Quran claims itself to be a book from God and
states that there are no contradictions and it is
book which is itself complete and has been
explained in detail now we will analyze a four well
known practices of Islam and we will see whether
they are explained in detail or not and whether
they contradict the verse 114 of chapter 6. Here
are the four well known practices in the light of
Quran-
a). FIVE TIME NAMAZ (PRAYER ) –
Salat (prayer) is one of the most important pillars
of Islam and it is compulsory for a muslim to pray
five times ( Namely Namaz fajr, Namaz zuhr,
Namaz Asr, Namaz Maghrib, Namaz Isha ) in a day
but surprisingly in Quran the holy book of Muslims
which is book which has explained things in detail
(As per Q 6:114 ) does not even mentions the
number of times need to pray in a day there is not
even a single verse in Quran which says that a
muslim is suppose to pray 5 times a day and even
more surprisingly even the names of five prayers
are not mentioned in Quran, By name only Three
Namaz are mentioned in Quran
1- Salat Al-Fajr (Dawn Prayer)24:58
2- Salat Al-Isha (Night Prayer)24:58
3- Al-Salat Al-Wusta (The Middle Prayer) 2:238.
Chapter 2 verse238 mentions the middle prayer
and also says to perform the obligatory prayers but
does not mentions how many times in a day you
need to perform the obligatory prayers.
So The five times of Namaz is not mentioned in
Quran a book which is claimed to be explained in
detail and claims no contradictions in it and does
not even clearly mentions the minimum number of
times one needs to perform Prayer in a day which
is indeed one amongst the basic pillars of Islam. It
seems like the Author of Quran got so busy in
expressing his hate and intolerance for Non
Muslims that he forgot to mention the minimum
number of times a muslim needs to pray in a day
and then the Fake story of flying donkey (Al-Burq)
was created to justify the concept of Five time
Namaz in a day.
b). Celebrating Eid on the end of Ramadan –
Unknown to many Muslims, the term ‘Eid’ has
never been used by the Quran to mark the end of
Ramadan or to celebrate the conclusion of the
fasting period. For example, the requirements to
fast in the month of Ramadan, to pay ‘zakat’ and to
establish ‘salah’ are not learnt by ‘prophetic
sunna’ or tradition. These are clear directives
instituted by the Quran as are many other
prescriptive laws and edicts. There is absolutely no
‘religious’ prescription to celebrate ‘Eid’ in the
Quran
The term ‘Eid’ has only been used once in the
entire Quran and possibly in the context of the
Eucharist which is the Christian ceremony which
commemorates the Biblical Last Supper of Prophet
Jesus. According to the New Testament, the
festival is celebrated by Prophet Jesus’s followers
as per his instructions to remember him.
According to the Quran, Prophet Jesus in response
to an initial request made by his disciples (5:112),
prayed to Almighty God that He send from heaven
a table spread (with food) as a festival (Eid). This
festival would constitute a sign from God from the
‘first to the last of them’
In Chapter 5 verse 114 ”Said Jesus the son of
Mary: “O God our Lord! Send us from heaven a
table spread, that there may be for us a festival
(Arabic: Eid(an)) for the first and the last of us and
a sign from You; and provide for our sustenance,
for You are the best Sustainer (of our needs).””
But no where in Quran (a book which is claimed to
be explained in detail and claims no contradictions
in it) ’Eid’ has been used to mark the end of
Ramadan or to celebrate the conclusion of the
fasting period.
c). PROCEDURE FOR BURIAL OF DEAD BODIES –
Now Burial of dead bodies is a very important
concept in Islam Muslims believe that a person
whose body has not been buried cannot enter
heaven and Burial of the Dead in Islam as it is
practiced today, deploys a rigid ritualized process
which is performed in the name of ‘religion’.
Depending on which school of thought one follows,
the rituals can vary.
What is interesting to note is the fact that
preparing the body in a specified manner for burial
is not mentioned anywhere in the Quran . For
example, the Quran states when ‘ghusl’ (bathing)
or ‘wudu’ (ablution) is required in chapter 5: verse
6 but this verse mentions no ghusl and wudu for
the Dead.
There is complete silence on the matter regarding
burial preparation and it is a matter left to society
to prepare and bury the body in what is deems
appropriate. There is no codified Quranic position
with regards this. There is no right or wrong way
to bury the dead, other than with respect and a
matter to be performed with dignity.
d). Circumcision –
Many Muslims never question whether this ritual
has any basis in scripture (i.e. the Quran). Instead,
they blindly follow the traditions of their forefathers
without rational thought, evidence or analysis
subjecting their new born children to a part
mutilation of their genitalia. The Quran on the other
hand makes no mention of circumcision.
Instead, there are verses that indicate that God has
already created the human shape in a perfected
form (requiring no changes such as the removal of
a male’s foreskin )
Chapter 95. verse 4
Transliteration
Laqad khalaqna al-insana fee ahsanitaqweem
“We have indeed created mankind in the best of
stature (moulds ) (Arabic: taqweem) ”
The above verses beg the following question. Why
then is the male incomplete and requires his
foreskin to be removed if our Lord has revealed no
decree for it nor hinted at it from His words which
He has revealed to us?
In fact, the only source that can be cited by
Muslim is the ‘Sunna’, a practice carried forward
from Abraham. But the question still remains.
Where is the proof that this indeed was a practice
instituted for humanity (men) when clearly God
instructed Prophet Muhammad to follow the
commandments and warn by way of the Quran
only (6:19; 50:45)?
At no place in the Quran does it mention that
Abraham practiced circumcision and if they bring
proofs from any other book than it proves that
Quran cannot be called a book which is explained
in detail.
In connection with the above, the desperation to
prove this practice as a religious requirement of
Islam is all too evident in Muslim thought when the
Bible (which is claimed by Muslims to be a
corrupted book) is used to invoke proof. It is clear
that many Christians themselves do not see
circumcision as a fundamental requirement of their
faith and worship towards God and they posit their
arguments from scripture. Jewish followers do
much the same to support their particular stance
for the commandment of circumcision.
The Quran on the other hand makes no mention of
circumcision.
CONCLUSION –
Quran which as per chapter 4 verse 82 claims to
be a book from Allah because by claiming itself to
be free from contradictions and in another verse
Quran says that it is book explained in detail (as
per verse 114 of chapter 6) and Muslims require
no other book then Quran (as per verse 37 of
chapter 68 and verse 50 of chapter 77) as Quran in
itself is a complete book for Muslims.
Now in step three we have analyzed that the basic
and most well known practices of Islam like
1 Five times Namaz daily
2Celebrating Eid on the end of Ramadan
3 Procedure for Burial of dead bodies
4 Circumcision of male gentiles
Is not even mentioned in Quran then how can we
claim this book to be a book explained in detail ?
Is this not a contradiction to verse 114 of chapter
6 ? Is this not a contradiction?
Muslims themselves knew that Quran is an
incomplete book and to justify there practices they
compiled the books of Hadees, We today see that
Hadees themselves are books full of contradictions
Sunni Muslim reject Shia Hadees and Shia Muslim
reject Sunni Hadees and the Aihl-e-Quran (Quran
Aloners) reject all the Hadees. In any of the above
case whether we include Hadees or not Quran itself
remains an incomplete book and no justification
and mention for many of the current day practices
of Islam are found in Quran.
So the above three step analysis clearly proves
that Quran is not a word of God infact it is a man
made book filled with errors and contradictions.
[Note – To keep the length of this article short, I
have briefly discussed only four well known
practices of Islam which are not mentioned in
Quran there are some other things also which are
not mentioned in Quran and some more
contradictions in Quran which will be discussed in
the next part of this series CAN QURAN BE A
WORD OF GOD?]
The Purpose of writing this article is not o hurt
anybodies religious beliefs but to accept what is
truth and reject what is False.
