Western Civilisation

Sura 1 an excerpt from 'The Critical Quran' by Robert Spencer

The Koran is the problem.

by Ferdinand III


 

 

Sura 1 translated into English is here and below.

Translated by Yusuf Ali.

Surah 1 – The Opening

With the Name of Allah, the Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer

1. In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

2. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;

3. Most Gracious, Most Merciful;

4. Master of the Day of Judgment.

5. Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.

6. Show us the straight way,

7. The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Gracethose whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.

 

Sura 1 informs the Shahada or daily morning prayer that Muslims must offer which is simply:  “There is no God but God (Allah – i.e. there is none worthy of worship but Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”  The Quran mentions Muhammad only 4 times as the final and only true messenger of the Al Lah or Lord of Mecca (Baal or the moon deity was the chief idol of Mecca and Muhammad’s family its caretakers).

  

Sura 1 is the shortest of the Quranic chapters.  So what is it telling us?  From the ‘Critical Quran’, Jews will endure wrath, the Christians are astray.

The path of the believers is knowledge of the truth and abiding by it. In comparison, the Jews abandoned practicing the religion, while the Christians lost the true knowledge. This is why ‘anger’ descended upon the Jews, while being described as ‘led astray’ is more appropriate of the Christians.”

 

   and

Islamic scholars have often identified “those who have earned Allah’s anger” as the Jews, and “those who have gone astray” as the Christians. This is such a commonplace understanding that a translation of Sahih Bukhari, the collection of reports (hadith) of Muhammad’s words and deeds that Muslims consider most reliable, adds identifying glosses into a story in which Muhammad quotes this verse of the Qur’an: “Say Amen when the Imam says not the path of those who earn Your Anger (such as Jews) nor of those who go astray (such as Christians); all the past sins of the person whose saying (of Amin) coincides with that of the angels, will be forgiven.”

 

 

In essence Sura 1 and the Shahada are curses on Jews and Christians.  The rest of the Quran explicates why this is so, and why Muhammadanism is the only ‘true religion’ and superior to the ‘corrupted texts’ (to quote the Quran) of the wayward and astray Jews and Christians both of whom are condemned to torture, disgrace, death, to be ruled by Muslims as second class citizens if they don’t convert to Muhammadanism and expelled into hellfire when they die if they don’t effect a conversion and grovel to Al Lah in repentance.
