Al Qalam (The Pen) (68)- 52

1        Nun.  By the Pen and by the (Record) which (men) write

2        Thou art not by the grace of thy Lord mad or possessed.

       *** Muhammad had personal doubts about his own SANITY as well as being accused by his tribe, the Quraysh of being POSSESSED ***

3        Nay verily for thee is a Reward unfailing:

4        And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.

5        Soon wilt thou see and they will see

6        Which of you is afflicted with madness.

7>        Verily it is thy Lord that knoweth best which (among men) hath strayed from His Path: and He knoweth best those who receive (True) Guidance.

8>        So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth).

9>        Their desire is that thou shouldst be pliant; so would thy be pliant.

10>        Need not the type of despicable man ready with oaths.

11>        A slanderer going about with calumnies.

12>        (Habitually) hindering (all) good transgressing beyond bounds deep in sin.

13        Violent (and cruel) with all that base-born

14        Because he possesses wealth and (numerous) sons.

15        When to him are rehearsed Our Signs "Tales of the Ancients" he cries.

16        Soon shall We brand (the beast) on the snout!

17>        Verily We have tried them as We tried the people of the Garden when they resolved to gather the fruits of the (garden) in the morning.

18>        But made no reservation ("If it be Allah's Will").

19>        So there came on the (garden) a visitation from thy from thy Lord (which swept away) all around while they were asleep.

20>        So the (garden) became by the morning like a dark and desolate spot (whose fruit had been gathered).

21>        As the morning broke they called out one to another

22        "Go ye to your tilth (betimes) in morning if ye would gather the fruits."

23        So they departed conversing in secret low tones (saying)

24        "Let not a single indigent person break in upon you into the (garden) this day."

25        And they opened the morning strong in an (unjust) resolve.

26        But when they saw the (garden) they said: "We have surely lost our way:

27        "Indeed we are shut out (of the fruits of our labor)!"

28        Said one of them more just (than the rest): "Did I not say to you `Why not glorify (Allah)?' "

29>        They said: "Glory to our Lord! Verily we have been doing wrong!"

30        Then they turned one against another in reproach.

31        They said: "Alas for us! We have indeed transgressed!

32        "It may be that our Lord will give us in exchange a better (garden) than this: for we do turn to Him (in repentance)!"

33>        Such is the Punishment (in this life); but greater is the Punishment in the Hereafter if only they knew!

34>        Verily for the righteous are Gardens of Delight in the Presence of their Lord.

35>        Shall We then treat the People of Faith like the People of Sin?

36        What is the matter with you? How judge ye?

37>        Or have ye a Book through which ye learn

38        That ye shall have through it whatever ye choose?

39>        Or have ye Covenants with Us on oath reaching to the Day of Judgment (providing) that ye shall have whatever ye shall demand?

       #5620        Nor can the Pagans plead that they have any special Covenants with Allah which give them a favoured position above other mortals. The 'Chosen Race' idea of the Jews is also condemned. It is quite true that a certain race or group, on accountt of special aptitude may be chosen by Allah to uphold His truth and preach it. But this is conditional on their following Allah's Law. As soon as they become arrogant and selfish, they lose that position. They cannot have a perpetual and unconditional lease till the Day of Judgment.#

       *** The word 'chosen' has been misunderstood and in many cases deliberately misrepresented and misapplied for invariably nefarious reasons.

Exodus 4: 22. "And you shall say to Pharaoh, Thus said the Lord, Israel is my son, my firstborn; 23. And I say to you, Let my son go, that he may serve me; and if you refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay your son, your firstborn"

Exodus 19:6." And you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the people of Israel"        

Deuteronomy 7: 6" For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a special people to himself, above all peoples that are upon the face of the earth"

        The meaning is very clear and has nothing to do with racial or cultural superiority. The Israelites were to be at all times morally superior to all others who do not believe in the
One and Only God and who are not Just.

       Since the Torah is the Book of Revelation for Israel, given by Allah, then how can the followers of Muhammad deny it when Allah in the Quran CONFIRMS that the Israelites were CHOSEN by him above all other peoples?

2:47        O children of Israel! call to mind the (special) favor which I bestowed upon You and that I preferred you [fathaltukum]to all others (for My message)

   122        O Children of Israel! call to mind the special favor which I bestowed upon you and that I preferred you [fathaltukum] to all others (for my message).

       The same Muhammadan Muslims who condemn the Jews for their alleged claims to racial superiority, conveniently and DELIBERATELY do not mention the numerous verses in the Quran that proclaim, in no uncertain terms, that Muhammad, the Arabs and his followers as being SUPERIOR to all other human beings on the planet.

       Muhammad and his followers exhibit and obscene degree of HYPOCRISY  regarding this matter ***

40        Ask thou of them which of them will stand surety of that!

41        Or have they some "Partners" (in Allah)? Then let them produce their "partners" if they are truthful!

42        The Day that the shin shall be laid bare and they shall be summoned to bow in adoration but they shall not be able
43        Their eyes will be cast down ignominy will cover them; seeing that they had been summoned aforetime to bow in adoration while they were whole (and had refused).

44        Then leave Me alone with such as reject this message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not.

45        A (long) respite will I grant them: truly powerful is My plan.

       *** Muhammad's Allah is a SCHEMER, PLOTTER and counter plotter against his creation.

       These are attributes that do not befit a DIVINE but only a human being.

        This is utter blasphemy and idolatry ***

46        Or is it that thou dost ask them for a reward so that they are burdened with a load of debt?

47        Or that they Unseen is in their hands so that they can write it down?

48>        So wait with patience for the command of thy Lord and be not like the Companion of the Fish when he cried out in agony.

49>        Had not Grace from His Lord reached him he would indeed have been cast off on the naked shore in disgrace.

50>        Thus did his Lord choose him and make him of the company of the Righteous

51>        And the Unbelievers would almost trip thee up with their eyes when they hear the message; and they say: "Surely he is possessed!"

52>        But it is nothing less than a Message to all the worlds.

       *** Can any one reading the above verses claim to have understood ANYTHING without interpretations? ***
