Sad (38)- 88

1        Sad.  By the Qur'an full of Admonition: (this is the Truth).

2        But the Unbelievers (are steeped) in Self-glory and Separatism.

3>        How many generations before them did We destroy? In the end they cried (for mercy) when there was no longer time for being saved!

4>        So they wonder that a Warner has come to them from among themselves! And the Unbelievers say "This is a sorcerer telling lies!

5>        "Has he made the gods [al aliha] (all) into one Allah [Ilahan wahid]? Truly this is a wonderful thing!"

       *** The verse has been deliberately mistranslated since the Arabic words
'Ilahan wahid' means One God and NOT 'one Allah'.

       Infact, it has been a deliberate policy by all the interpreters of the Quran, to make believe, that the name Allah means God and NOT what it really was and is, the proper name of the supreme pagan rock god of the Ka'ba, the BLACK STONE.

       Muhammad actually was able to transform and METAMORPHOSE, the stone god of the Ka'ba, Allah, into the God of Israel***

6        And the leaders among them go away (impatiently) (saying) "Walk ye away and remain constant to your gods! For this is truly a thing designed (against you)!

7        "We never heard (the like) of this among the people of these latter days: this is nothing but a made-up tale!

8        "What! Has the Message been sent to him (of all persons) among us?" But they are in doubt concerning My (own) Message! Nay they have not yet tasted My Punishment!

9>        Or have they the Treasures of the Mercy of thy Lord the Exalted in Power the Grantor of Bounties without measure!

10>        Or have they the dominion of the heavens and the earth and all between? If so let them mount up with the ropes and means (to reach that end)!

11        But there will be put to flight even a host of confederates.

12>        Before them (were many who) rejected apostles the People of Noah and `Ad and Pharaoh the Lord of Stakes.

13        And Thamud and the People of Lut and the Companions of the Wood; such were the Confederates.

14>        Not one (of them) but rejected the apostles but My Punishment came justly and inevitably (on them).

15>        These (to-day) only wait for a single mighty Blast which (when it comes) will brook no delay.

16>        They say: "Our Lord! Hasten to us our sentence (even) before the Day of Account!"

17>        Have patience at what they say and remember Our Servant David the man of strength: for he ever turned (to Allah).

       #4167        David was a man of exceptional strength, for even as a raw youth, he slew the Philistine giant Goliath. See ii. 249-252, and notes 286-87. Before that fight, he was mocked by his enemies and chidden even by his own elder brother. But he relied upon Allah, and won through, and afterwards became king.#

       ***The interpreter who knows better, perverted the facts, since David was only a youth without exceptional strength but with exceptional wisdom, because he killed Goliath with one shot of a sling ***

18>        It was We that made the hills declare in unison with him Our Praises at eventide and at break of day.
19        And the birds gathered (in assemblies): all with him did turn (to Allah).

       #4169        Note the mutual echo between this verse and verse 17 above. The Arabic awwab is common to both, and it furnishes the rhyme or rhythm of the greater part of the Sura, thus echoing the main theme: 'Turn to Allah in Prayer and Praise, for that is more than any worldly power or wisdom.'#                

       *** Yet once more, the interpreter deliberately falsifies the historical records since
- according to Legends of the Jews - it was only Solomon who talked to birds and animals in praise of God***

20>        We strengthened his kingdom and gave him wisdom and sound judgment in speech and decision.

21        Has the Story of the Disputants reached thee? Behold they climbed over the wall of the private chamber;

       *** Verses 21-44 are not found in the Bible ***

22        When they entered the presence of David and he was terrified of them they said: "Fear not: We are two disputants one of whom has wronged the other: decide now between us with truth and treat us not with injustice but guide us to the even Path.

23        "This man is my brother; he has nine and ninety ewes and I have (but) one: Yet he says `Commit her to my care' and is (moreover) harsh to me in speech."

24        (David) said: "He has undoubtedly wronged thee in demanding thy (single) ewe to be added to his (flock of) ewes: truly many are the Partners (in business) who wrong each other: not so do those who believe and work deeds of righteousness and how few are they?"... And David gathered that We had tried him: he asked forgiveness of his Lord fell down bowing (in prostration) and turned (to Allah in repentance).

25        So We forgave him this (lapse): he enjoyed indeed a Near Approach to Us and a beautiful place of (final) Return.

26        > O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth: so judge thou between men in truth (and justice): nor follow thou the lusts (of thy heart) for they will mislead thee from the Path of Allah: for those who wander astray from the Path of Allah is a Penalty Grievous for that they forget the Day of Account.

       #4177        Cf. ii. 30, and n. 47. David's kingly power, and the gifts of wisdom, justice, psalmody, and prophethood were bestowed on him as a trust. These great gifts were not to be a matter of self-glory. 4178        As stated in n. 1471 above, this vision and its moral are nowhere to be found in the Bible. Those who think they see a resemblance to the Parable of the prophet Nathan (2 Samuel, xii. 1-12) have nothing to go upon but the mention of the "one ewe" here and the "one little ewe-lamb" in Nathan's Parable. The whole story is here different, and the whole atmosphere is different. The Biblical title given to David, "a man after God's own heart" is refuted by the Bible itself in the scandalous tale of heinous crimes attributed to David in chapters xi and xii. of 2 Samuel, viz., adultery, fraudulent dealing with one of his own servants, and the contriving of his murder. Further, in chapter xiii, we have the story of rapes, incest, and fratricide in David's own household! The fact is that passages like those are mere chroniques scandaleuses, i.e., narratives of scandalous crimes of the grossest character. The Muslim idea of David is that of a man just and upright, endowed with all the virtues, in whom even the least thought of self-elation has to be washed off by repentance and forgiveness.#

       *** Since pagan Arab traditions never had any knowledge of king David or any of the Biblical stories, the interpreter of the Quran went to incredible lengths of deception to accommodate and fit the stories of the Quran in a 'real' historical framework based almost entirely on fairy-tales.

       With his usual depraved indifference for the truth, history and morality, the interpreter of the Quran - and all others like him - actually corrupts, perverts and re-edits the Biblical stories and make them suit the Arab mentality.

       Unlike the recorded and glorified histories of other peoples, the Bible is not written to glorify and whitewash the Israelites at all times, but to tell the truth - whether good or bad - about their behaviour and relationship with God.

       It is beyond the intellectual and moral capacity to of these interpreters to understand such a point of view ***

27>        Not without purpose did We create heaven and earth and all between! That were the thought of Unbelievers! But woe to the Unbelievers because of the Fire (of Hell)!

28>        Shall We treat those who believe and work deeds of righteousness the same as those who do mischief on earth? Shall We treat those who guard against evil the same as those who turn aside from the right?

29>        (Here is) a Book which We have sent down unto thee full of blessings that they may meditate on its Signs and that men of understanding may receive admonition.

30>        To David We gave Solomon (for a son) how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn (to Us)!

31>        Behold there were brought before him at eventide coursers of the highest breeding; and swift of foot;

32>        And he said "Truly do I love the love of Good with a view to the glory of my Lord" until (the sun) was hidden in the veil (of Night):

33>        "Bring them back to me." Then began he to pass his hand over (their) legs and their necks.

34>        And We did try Solomon: We placed on his throne a body (without life): but he did turn (to Us in true devotion):

35>        He said "O my Lord! Forgive me and grant me a Kingdom which (it may be) suits not another after me: for Thou art the Grantor of Bounties (without measure)."

36>        Then We subjected the Wind to his power to flow gently to his order whithersoever he willed

37>        As also the evil ones (including) every kind of builder and diver

38>        As also others bound together in fetters.

39>        "Such are Our Bounties: whether thou bestow them (on others) or withhold them no account will be asked."

40>        And he enjoyed indeed a Near Approach to Us and a beautiful Place of (final) Return.

41>        Commemorate Our servant Job behold he cried to his Lord: "The Evil One has afflicted me with distress and suffering"!

42        (The command was given:) "Strike with thy foot: here is (water) wherein to wash cool and refreshing and (water) to drink."

43>        And We gave him (back) his people and doubled their number as a Grace from Ourselves and a thing for commemoration for all who have Understanding.

44        "And take in thy hand a little grass and strike therewith: and break not (thy oath)." Truly We found him full of patience and constancy: how excellent in Our service! Ever did he turn (to Us)!

38:45>        And commemorate Our servants Abraham Isaac and Jacob possessors of Power and Vision
46>        Verily We did chose them for a special (purpose) proclaiming the Message of the Hereafter.

47>        They were in Our sight truly of the company of the Elect and the Good.

48>        And commemorate Ismail Elisha and Zul-Kifl: each of them was of the company of the Good

49>        This is a message (of admonition): and verily for the Righteous is a beautiful place of (final) Return)

50>        Gardens of Eternity whose doors will (ever) be open to them;

51>        Therein will they recline (at ease); therein can they call (at pleasure) for fruit in abundance and (delicious) drink;

52         And beside them will be chaste women restraining their glances (companions) of equal age.        
       *** The Quran always implies a bounty of female companionship for those who go to heaven (the Garden) which is associated with SEX in the mind of Muhammadans.

       It seems that Allah would provide as many females for the sexual pleasures and gratification of Muhammad's followers, as necessary ***

53>        Such is the promise made to you for the Day of Account!

54>        Truly such will be Our Bounty (to you); it will never fail

55>        Yea such! But for the wrongdoers will be an evil place of (final) Return!

56>        Hell! They will burn therein an evil bed (indeed to lie on)!

57>        Yea such! Then shall they taste it a boiling fluid and a fluid dark murky intensely cold!

58>        And other Penalties of a similar kind to match them!

59>        Here is a troop rushing headlong with you! No welcome for them! Truly they shall burn in the Fire!

60        (The followers shall cry to the misleaders:) "Nay ye (too)! No welcome for you! It is ye who have brought this upon us! Now evil is (this) place to stay in!"

61        They will say: "Our Lord! Whoever brought this upon us add to him a double Penalty in the fire!"

62        And they will say: "What has happened to us that we see not men whom we used to number among the bad ones?

63        "Did we treat them (as such) in ridicule or have (our) eyes failed to perceive them?"

38:64        Truly that is just and fitting the mutual recriminations of the People of the Fire!

65>        Say: "Truly am I a Warner: no god is there but the One Allah Supreme and

66>        "The Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between Exalted in Might Able to enforce His will forgiving again and again."

67>        Say: "That is a message supreme (above all)

68        "From which ye do turn away!

69        "No knowledge have I of the Chiefs on high when they discuss (matters) among themselves.

70>        "Only this has been revealed to me: that I am to give warning plainly and publicly."

71>        Behold thy Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man from clay:

72>        "When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit fall ye down in obeisance unto him."

73>        So the angels prostrated themselves all of them together;

74>        Not so Iblis: he was haughty and became one of those who reject Faith.

75>        (Allah) said: "O Iblis! what prevents thee from prostrating thyself to one whom I have created with My hands? Art thou haughty? Or art thou one of the high (and mighty) ones?"

76>        (Iblis) said: "I am better than he: Thou createdst me from fire and him Thou createdst from clay."

77>        (Allah) said: "Then get thee out from here: for thou art rejected accursed.

78>        "And My Curse shall be on thee till the Day of Judgement."

79>        (Iblis) said: "O my Lord! give me then respite till the Day the (dead) are raised."

80>        (Allah) said: "Respite then is granted thee

81>        "Till the day of the Time Appointed."

82>        (Iblis) said: "Then by Thy power I will put them all in the wrong

83        "Except Thy Servants amongst them sincere and purified (by Thy grace)."

84        (Allah) said: "Then it is just and fitting and I say what is just and fitting

85>        "That I will certainly fill Hell with thee and those that follow thee--every one."

86        Say: "No reward do I ask of you for this (Qur'an) nor am I a pretender.

87        "This is no less than a Message to (all) the Worlds.

88        "And ye shall certainly know the truth of it (all) after a while."
