The whole point of the Koran is submission to the moon cult of Allah. There is no need for the niceties of debate, inquiry, rationality, gratitude or the Golden Rule. Unlike Christian theology, none of these Western oriented particulars exists in the Koran, or in Muslim canonical jurisprudence. They never have and they never will. The objective of Islam is not free-will, or the liberation of the individual to pursue a meaningful life. The sole purpose is to have the person subsumed into the cult as a devoted slave, not as a thinking human.
This Sura is yet another tract which extols the powers of the moon deity and demands humiliating compliance with the Koranic cult. The 'Winds that Scatter' are the winds of punishment from the moon deity. He will scatter those who disbelieve, and who refuse to acknowledge the supremacy of the Arabian moon cult, and the purity of its message enunciated by the perfect man, the political-military adventurer Mahomet. Jews, Christians and pagan-polytheist Arabs will be blown into destruction by the winds of Allah:
'And in the 'Ad (people) (was another Sign): behold, We sent against them the devastating Wind: It left nothing whatever that it came up against but reduced it to ruin and rottenness. [51:42]
Annihilating tribes who do not follow the moon cult, hardly seems like a theology of peace.
But the winds of Allah are also the Islamic world's media. Natural winds will distribute the message of how to live the 'right life' throughout the world. The winds of nature in other words are proof, that Allah exists, that Allah rules, and that Islam is the natural power and arbiter of all of man's affairs:
By the (winds) that scatter broadcast;....Verily that which you promise is true; And verily the Judgment and Justice must indeed come to pass. [51:1,5,6]
The winds of Allah will spread the word of the coming day of Judgment according to this Sura. And if you are not a pious Muslim, your days in hellfire are assured:
Woe to the falsehood-mongers,-
..They ask, 'When will be the day of Judgment and Justice ?'
(It will be) a Day when they will be tried (and tested) over the Fire! [51:10, 12, 13]
This does not sound like a system of social harmony and inter-faith love. Anyone who denies the supremacy of Allah and his moon cult are 'falsehood mongers' – especially the Jews and Christians who have perverted the original word of Allah. This is clear because the Sura again references the Muslim obsession and inanity of pronouncing Noah, Abraham and Moses, as being Muslim prophets. This is intended to 'prove' that the Jews and Christians have corrupted the pure words and 'spiritual path' of Allah.
This justifies Muslim aggression against these miscreants including jihad, enslavement and dhimmitude. This Sura emphasizes the inescapable damnation awaiting these 'hypocrites' by ending with the belief that Allah's promise of hellfire for the Infidel will be realized:
Woe, then, to the Unbelievers, on account of that Day of theirs which they have been promised! [51:60]
But Muslims will flourish;
As to the Righteous, they will be in the midst of Garden and Springs, [51:15]
Again, there is nothing comparable in Christian, Buddhist or Hindu theology. In faiths which preach the Golden Rule as the mainspring of their ethical program, you will never find such statements of rank, swaggering intolerance and supremacism. Only in the Koran can one read such totalitarian ideals.
Allah reigns supreme simply because Allah and Mahomet say so. This is called circular logic. Why would any sentient person believe something simply because a fanatic says it must be true, because it is true. This is not an intelligent argument. Neither is Mahomet's claim that Allah is divine, because:
On the earth are Signs for those of assured Faith, [51:20]
Allah takes credit for the creation of the natural biomass. Not only that, Allah dispenses with the hundreds of Arab celestial idols by declaring:
With power and skill We constructed the firmament: for it is We who created the vastness of space. [51:47]
We being Muslims one supposes, or the Allah cult. Pagan Arabs are thus really idolizing and worshipping Allah, since Allah has created all of their sky-based deities. How convenient. This justifies Mahomet's actions in effacing all of the 360 odd objects of worship in the Kabaa shrine, and replacing them with just one – Allah, or Ali-ilah, the male moon deity guarded and paid homage to, by Mahomet's family. How convenient indeed – my God is the supreme God who created your God. So worship my God and you will still be worshipping your previous God. This is clever in some way one supposes.
The point of Islam is of course submission and ultimately slavery. Pious Muslims are slaves to the cult and the Koran. Jews and Christians are second-class pseudo-slaves to be tax farmed and humiliated. Females, Blacks, eunuchs and others are to be chattel slaves serving their male Muslim masters. Allah likes slaves – he makes this clear when he says;
And I have not created Jinns and men, except that they should serve (worship) Me. [51:56]
Serve and worship the Allah-cult. If you do you might be rewarded. If you don't you are going to be 'scattered by the winds' of Allah and destroyed. And failing that, you are doomed anyways to hellfire and eternal torment and damnation.
Such a doctrine has more than just a passing similarity with Nazism.
