More plagiarism from the Koran. Poems appropriated by the Allah-thing.

Muhammad needed material. He stole it from the Kabaa.

by Ferdinand III


Most of the short Suras from 93 to 103 are plagiarized from poems posted on the Kabaa shrine during Muhammad's early days as a 'Preacher', in which he converted about a dozen people to the Allah cult. This should be juxtaposed against the 'Medinan' phase of Islam, which was a period of war, brigandage, and use of military force, resulting in the mass conversions of hundreds of thousands of former 'pagans' and a few Jews and Christians who desired to keep their heads on their shoulders and decided to forsake a religious group for the cult of Muhammad.

These shorter Suras are emotive expressions and do contain some spirituality. But like most of the Koran they are plagiarized with Muhammad affixing Allah to the existing poetic compositions.

"W. St. Calir-Tisdall, the author of the famous essay The Origin of Islam by comparing two passages from the Sabaa Mu'allaqat, finds close similarity with the verses from the Qur'an. Some of these verses are:

054.001 The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.

093.001 By the Glorious Morning Light,Commenting on verse 54.1 W. St. Clair-Tisdall writes

'It was the custom of the time for and orators to hang up their compositions upon the Ka'aba; and we know the seven Mu'allaqat were exposed. We are told that Fatima, the Prophet's daughter, was one day repeating as she went along the above verse. Just then she met the daughter of Imrul Qays, who cried out, "O that's what your father has taken from one of my father's poems, and calls it something that has come down to him out of heaven;" and the story is commonly told amongst the Arabs until now.'

Thus, the relationship between Imrul Qays' poems and some of the early verses of the Qur'an is pretty obvious. In this connection, W. St. Clair-Tisdall elaborates further:

"The connection between the poetry of Imra'ul Qays and the Koran is so obvious that the Muslims cannot but hold that they existed with the latter in the Heavenly table from all eternity! What then will he answer? That the words were taken from the Koran and entered in the poem? - an impossibility. Or that their writer was not really Imra'ul Qays, but some other who, after the appearance of the Koran, had the audacity to quote them there as they now appear? - rather a difficult thing to prove!"

Imra Qays is credited with many of the short Sura verses including these two:

Sura 99 (the Earthquake)

099.001 When the earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion, 
099.002 And the earth throws up her burdens (from within),

099.003 And man cries (distressed): 'What is the matter with her?'- 
099.004 On that Day will she declare her tidings: 
099.005 For that thy Lord will have given her inspiration. 
099.006 On that Day will men proceed in companies sorted out, to be shown the deeds that they (had done). 
099.007 Then shall anyone who has done an atom's weight of good, see it! 
099.008 And anyone who has done an atom's weight of evil, shall see it

Sura 103 (the Declining Day)

103.001 By (the Token of) Time (through the ages), 
103.002 Verily Man is in loss, 
103.003 Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy.

In other words the Allah thing did not 'create' the 'uncreated Koran'. Most of the gibberish found in the Koran is plagiarized material. As well the above verses are completely at odds with the longer Medinan Suras which are overtly supremacist, racist, misogynist, violent and intolerant. Historians know that Qays and other poets provided these verses which Muhammad took and plagiarised as inspirations from the moon deity El-Lah or iLah. Muhammad stole poetic material from the following poets to flesh out his shorter Suras and provide him with a road-map during his early ministry. The following are poets whose material is in the Koran:

Bahira - a Nestorian Christian monk of the Syrian church

Hasan b. Thabit - the  official poet of Muhammad

Ibn Qumta - a Christian slave

Imrul Qays - an ancient poet of Arabia who died a few decades before Muhammad's birth

Jabr - a Christian neighbour of Muhammad

Khadijah - Muhammad's first wife

Labid - another poet

Salman, the Persian - Muhammad's  confidante' and an advisor

Ubay b. Ka'b - Muhammad's secretary and a Qur'an scribe

Waraqa - Khadijah's cousin's brother

Zayd b. Amr b. Naufal - an 'apostate' of his time who preached and propagated 'Hanifism'

Muhammad famously hated poets, at least those who wrote against his totalitarian regime. He killed a few including an aged poetess who was strangled in her bed by one of Muhammad's ruffians. I don't recall Jesus having one of his disciples perform a similar act, but maybe that is just a bad translation of my New Testament. In any event, poets who acceded to the moon cult were considered 'good', and those who didn't fell into the Infidel category and its various sub-components of unclean, unjust, untrustworthy, evil and hypocritical.
