Throughout the Qur’an Allah is referred to in plural terms. This article clearly explains why using unaltered suras in the Qur’an. In Sura 3:105, the Qur’an explicitly identifies a party of men sanctioned to invite goodness, enjoin equity, and forbid evil. This party of men surfaces throughout the Qur’an not as Allah, the all forgiving and merciful God, but as fanatical aggressors who are responsible for the destruction of many towns and killing of innocent people in the name of Allah. One such sura below demonstrates the planned strategy of militants killing people while they are asleep at night or in the afternoon while at play.
Qur’an Sura 7:97-100. Weafflicted them suddenly with chastisement, while they perceived not the cause thereof. If the people of those towns had believed and been righteous, We would surely have bestowed blessings upon them from heaven and earth, but they rejected the Prophets, so We seized them because of that which they did. Do the people of these towns now feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them by night while they are asleep? Or, do they feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them in the forenoon while they are at play? Do they feel secure against the design of Allah? None feels secure against the design of Allah, except those that are losers.
The above sura violates one of the Ten Commandments given to Moses, “Thou shalt not kill.” Under no circumstances should a Book of God convey the killing of our sisters and brothers in the name of, or by the design of God. The excuses given in the above sura to rationalize such killing presents a ruthlessness and disregard for God’s creations. It is an example of many suras provided in the Qur’an that identifies a partyof men speaking for God. The above sura cannot be Allah speaking because God cannot be inconsistent with His commands. If God is found to be inconsistent, He can no longer be a God of truth that guides the morality of mankind.
The ruthlessness of fanatical Islamic terrorists continues in many countries today. It is the Qur’an itself that is used as a medium of indoctrination to motivate Muslims to kill in the name of Allah. Below, this conclusion is clearly found to be true as the Qur’an reveals it is a religious leader of high rank that tells his army of men to draw on the wrath of Allah to kill disbelievers or hell shall be their abode.
Qur’an Sura 8:16-19. O ye who believe, when you encounter an hostile force of the disbelievers, turn not your backs on them. Whoso turns his back on them on such an occasion, unless maneuvering for battle or turning to join another company, shall draw upon himself the wrath of Allah and hell shall be his abode. An evil resort it is.
Thus on the day of Badr it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them; and it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it, that He might confer a great favour upon the believers. Surely, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. That is so; and Allah will surely undermine the design of the disbelievers.
It becomes convincingly clear that the above sura was written by a commander as one reads of the strategy not to turn and run when encountering a hostile force unless it is necessary to maneuver for battle by turning and joining another company. But notice in the second paragraph that the commander uses his leadership to strengthen the resolve of his troops by stating “it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them.” Clearly, these are not the words of Allah but a commander or a powerful religious leader.
The commander’s technique of using Allah as sanctioning atrocities has been a successful form of brainwashing or leadership to convince his fighters that the killings were not through their own volition but by Allah who supports and directs their cause. This mind trick is another way of convincing people that they are not responsible for their misdeeds but some outside force, which they attribute to God. But this thinking reminds us of the infantile answer made popular by one of our greatest comedians, Flip Wilson, with, “The devil made me do that.”
To rationalize the killing of innocent people, the religious leader tells his fighters that “it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it,” and, “that He might confer a great favor on the believers.” This mind trick by religious leaders allows them to make their followers obey their will by placing the act of murder on Allah. But think about it, would God kill His own creations for not worshipping Him? Is the all-forgiving and merciful God unpredictable by rescinding His command “Thou shalt not kill (Exodus 20:13)?”
It becomes apparent that a party of religious leaders are actively using the Qur’an to force the belief in Allah for the unification of Muslims and create an Theocratic Islamic Empire. People need to be told the truth that although many suras in the Qur’an are written to direct morality it contains suras that incite bigotry, hatred, violence and the killing of innocent people who do not worship Allah. The Qur’an, unfortunately, is the source of discontent in many, many countries around the world. The solution must be sought by Islamic religious leaders.
